You might have been wondering why there has been a lot of contest but no comics lately. Here are the reasons. First, I like contests. I have a lot of Life On 66 items to give away and I thought you might like them. Second, I am having an issue with my right eye.
Not to go into great details, but 12 years ago I had cataract surgery by the great Lisa Arbisser (daughter of the late Dr. Joyce Brothers) and I went from nearly legally blind to better than 20/20 vision. During the surgeries (both eyes) lens were inserted in both (a week apart). Easy and painless and I got off the table with perfect vision.
Now up to date…the lens on my right eye has developed a film. They (Dr.s) give an example of a sheet of thin wax paper over the lens. The doctors say this is 100% normal, kinda expected and 100% easy to fix. But until they do my right eye does not focus. Making drawing all but impossible. SO…on Feb 12, 2016 I go in for laser surgery on my right eye. Takes 2 minutes and I will be back to normal. And back to drawing.
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.
