Went ahead and inked and colored this bad boy. Click the image to see a side-by-side composite of the pencils and the colored image.
Yesterday was Manchester, New Hampshire’s Granite State Comicon brought to you by the fine folks over at Double Midnight Comics. They’ve been putting on this show for a few years now and every year it gets a little bigger, a little better.
This year’s guest list included Marvel and DC heavyweights like Ethan Van Scriver (Green Lantern) and Khoi Pham (Mighty Avengers, Geoff Pham’s brother) and local celebrities (as far as comics are concerned) like Scott Wegener (Atomic Robo).
Also, *I* was there flanked by sidekicks Greg and Bryan of strangeink.net “fame” serving as a resident Holy Trinity of toilet humor and pop culture references.
For now, know that a good time was had by all (as far as I could tell no one FATALLY injured) and that there were several humorous moments throughout the day that you just had to be there for (so I won’t bother attempting to relate them to you).
For later, check back tomorrow for a more exhaustive breakdown of the show complete with photographs of costumed attendees, convention room bustle, and a scan or two of drawings that I did at the behest of lookers-on.
I know I haven’t been around here lately, but I have a somewhat adequate reason: I’ve been prepping for the Granite State Comicon!
I’ve posted about this prior to today, but I wanted to make sure that I reminded anyone who was going to be in the area to come on by artist’s alley and say “hey!”
I’ll be doing some drawings, selling original art and “pressing the flesh.” Yeah. Sexy.

Sunday, May 18, 2008 circlecomics will be at the Granite State Comicon in Manchester, NH.
If you’re in the area that weekend you should make plans to come by the convention and check it out. It’s only been around for a few years now, but the guys at Double Midnight Comics that run the show are really good at putting these events together. This year’s guest list includes (so far) Khoi Pham (The Incredible Hercules, Mighty Avengers, Geoff Pham’s Brother), Scott Wegener (Atomic Robo and fellow New Hampshiren), Inker Bob Almond, Ethan Van Sciver (Sinestro Corps.), Keith Champagne (DC’s Countdown Arena and, yes, Adolescent Radioactive Blackbelt Hamsters), Joe Hill (Heart Shaped Box, Locke andKey), Scott Collins (The Flash: Rogues Revenge, Countdown) and more!
I’ll be there representing circlecomics with original art for sale, maybe some posters, some handouts and whatver other stuff I can put together before then.
I won’t lie to you: I’m not a webguy. I mean, I know how to post stuff on the web, but I’m not the guy that knows how to make it pretty. Or functional. I do my best, read a lot of tutorials and steal -er- borrow as much as possible, but there’s only so much time I’m willing to commit to it. If I can put the time into making my comic and have a sub-par looking site, I rather do that than the opposite.
I’m pretty sure the actual address of this website has kind of changed and depending on where you had your bookmark (if you had one that said anything other than just “circlecomics.com”) you may need to update it. It used to be circlecomics.com automatically forwarding to wordpress.com/circlecomics now it’s the other way around, circlecomics.com/wordpress. I think. You might be able to tell me other wise but I will just stare at you and blink a few times. All I know is this seems to work (on my computer at least).
I think this set up works a lot better then it was working before. Over the weeks to come I’ll find ways to make it a little more aesthetically pleasing and functional (with your suggestions of course. I’m trying to please YOU!).
My apologies to everyone who had comments on the old version. I couldn’t figure out how to import them.
