…and who might this new girl be? We’ll find out eventually, but don’t think I’ve forgotten about Scapula and the other big bad boys. Tune in this Sunday to find out what the boss man has in mind.
For the past several months I have been involved with the Comic Art Professional Society (CAPS)‘s auction to help raise much-needed funds for comics legend Stan (Usagi Yojimbo) Sakai and his wife Sharon. For those who aren’t aware, Sharon has been suffering severe medical issues lately, and these have taken their toll (financially and otherwise) on the Sakai family. Thankfully artist and good guy Tone Rodriguez organized this auction to help raise the money needed to cover their medical bills; the auction has been going amazingly well and even Dark Horse Comics will be releasing a book of some great artwork honoring Stan and Usagi (more on that another time).
My own piece for the auction went up recently, so here’s hoping it raises some dough to help out. To see the auction for yourself and contribute to a good cause, please go to the CAPS eBay auction in progress. To bid on my artwork directly, follow this link (my piece will be available until April 27th, 2014).
The newest collection has hit the Store! SCAPULA VOLUME 2: FEAR THE FAILURE features all of the stories from 2010 up to 2012, thus completing ‘the Sunday years’ in your book collection.
In this volume you’ll find the biggest story arc in the series, Sinister Monster Doom Legion, the sad tale of Scapula’s childhood in Children Are the Damned; or, Li’l Scapula, Scap’s brief tenure with white supremacists in One Flew Over the Ku Klux Nest, the dreaded ‘evil twin’ fiasco in Science Fiction Doubles Feature, a baffling Christmas adventure in Dada Dodo Doodah, a lesson in the dangers of seduction in Man of a Thousand Failures, the heart-breaking and oh-so-dramatic tale of love and deceit in Bone China, horror-galore in My Llorona, even more horror and classic monster mayhem in House of Scapula, and a turning point in the lives of nearly everyone in The Jemini Killer.
Extras? We’ve got extras! Here’s what you’ll find:
Darkevilhelldeath-Man Rising – The prelude to the SMDL story, this print-only chapter gives the whole story behind the maniacal sock-puppet and how he came to meet Scap.
“Unfinished and Untitled” – The very first Scapula comic ever made (albeit unfinished and untitled), and perhaps the most offensive thing I’ve ever drawn!
The Villain – This fully-painted story is a dark look at how Scapula might have turned out had I chosen a real-world, non-comedic setting for the series. Also the first appearance (kinda’) of Bone China.
The Sinister Monster Doom Legion versus Randy – A storyboard for an unmade animated short. All of the villains must unite their forces to stop their most hated nemesis: a bratty six year-old kid!
Guest Comics – I’ve done quite a number of guest comics over the years, but I selected a few of my favorites for inclusion here. You may never look at these comics the same way again after you see what I do to ‘em!
As before, I will sign all copies and draw a character inside just for you. If you wish to choose the character you want to see, simply let me know in the Ordering Details section (otherwise I’ll just pick a character).
All of this, plus a new art gallery and more, are waiting for you! SCAPULA VOLUME 2 is only $10.00 (plus shipping & handling). Relive some of the greatest (and gruesomest) moments in Scapula’s long history all over again!
