With the WILDLY successful super hero movies I guess it was just natural to bring this venue to the small screen. TV shows such as ARROW (Green Arrow) which is about to spin off several other hero based shows, The FLASH, Marvel Agents of SHIELD, Agent CARTER of SHIELD and the upcoming SUPERGIRL on CBS and the non-super but best of them all, GOTHAM. I have been watching them all and it is the Agents of SHIELD that is heading in a fun direction. They have introduced the INHUMANS. If you read comic books in the middle to late 60s you know all about this segment of super power beings. I really hope they expand on this and to that end I drew something that, if you are a comic fan, you should recognize.
A friend of my nephew, Aaron Thompson, makes all kinds of Thor movie replicas and posts them on his Facebook. One item he makes is a dead ringer of Thor’s hammer. So much so that I decided that it was TOO lifelike and someone might want it back sooooo…I drew this.
A week ago my nephew and I were talking over how really bad most comics in the DC and Marvel universe have become. Horrible. He asked me what comic books I read so I thought I would draw up a quick sketch of the only book I read…
The comic on 06 FEB 15 I once again visit Mr. Fields and his grocery store. There really was a Mr. Fields and his little store held the best candy, the coldest bottles of pop and some fun toys. I grew up passing his store almost daily going to grade school and on hot summer days we in Cliff Heights would cut through the pasture, cut across the cemetery and down the hill to his store and (I swear to God) the coldest bottle of pop dispenser in the world. In the early 60s he fixed up the basement in the store with all kinds of games. Pool, darts and the such. All free. My family moved in 1967 and I only got to go back once. The picture below is the store. Completely remodeled and a 2nd story added.
