Dave Simons: The Appeal - Walter Simonson Manhunter & Batman!

Image
You're not seeing things...this is one of the most incredible Walter Simonson illustrations you're ever likely to see. Walt has done this drawing for the Dave Simons Appeal and it is on eBay for auction now. You may never get another chance because I expect whoever ends up buying this one will be holding onto it for a number of decades to come. Go ahead, click on it and see the detail.

Walt has stated that this is the first time he's drawn Dan Kingdom/The Enforcer since the original Manhunter series finished. He also says that there are no Manhunter illustrations of this quality anywhere outside of his own collection - what more do you want?

Keep checking the Dave Simons eBay auctions for more information. That art is to die for! Thanks Walt!

Facebook Comic Con Gala Premiere Welcome Address

Michael Netzer's inspiring opening speech...click and view.

The Facebook Comic Con has taken on a life all of it's own. From the first time I first reported on it until now it's grown at a rapid rate with many people coming together, making contacts, networking and generally establishing, and in some cases re-establishing, themselves in the comic book community at large. The idea of a comic book convention that knows no boundries, physical or otherwise, is unique and it takes someone with vision and drive to make it all happen, that someone is Michael Netzer. In his opening address Michael makes some very relevant points indeed, so enough from me, click the links and join in. It might just be the most fun you'll have in a while.
