As December Rolls on in

Hey there sports fans, Al here with the latest: 

GALLERY SHOWS:

   By the time of this posting all ten pieces of scratchboards will have been dropped off at the People's Art of Portland Gallery and ready for the following weeks opening on December 10th at 2PM till 10PM.   Here for more details
  I myself might not be in attendance for I have a personal matter to attend to but the work itself should speak for me.  
All of these could be yours my son for only $40 bucks a pop!  The proceeds of the sales are going to help support Oregon Food Bank. The location and the time of  the gallery is here.
   There is a write up the local Portland Mercury that talks about the show. 
    It is unfortunate that the "I am, therefore I think,5" show has come to a close.  It was fun seeing Corpse Cop at the middle of things but no takers.  But I know he'll find a good home.

THE CROSSOVER: 
Da Place...

It was Dark Grey day.  Rain ran through the gutters of downtown like a white water torrent as the bicyclist rode through like the most practiced kayaker.  There was a meeting and it had to be met.  No amount of plastic and rain proof gear would keep the late November chill away only the thought of hot pizza and a pint of beer kept him going.  His comrades would be there soon.  And they were.
  The second meeting for ECCC 2012 had begun.  As always with any creative group we always talk about topics related to comics.  And since comics and entertainment are intertwined we talked of the latest shows we had seen. Such as Fringe 4th season and LEXX.  
  But we didn't just talk about shows though.  It was such a powerful meeting of Titan$ and sheer power of relaxing broke a chair in the process.  
Chair of Awesomeness!

  Good things and plans to be made.
  For those of you who will in the Seattle area around late March should stop on by and see what we have to offer.    I will be keeping you updated as we learn more of our set up at show, table number ect.

THE POSTIT ADVENTURES:
Where are we now with Johnny Vega and childhood exploits?  Starting with Page 13.
    Previously in Johnny Vega, Man. of the Future:  Liberation!    The plot by the Cainarious Raiders to subjectigate the planet Vega has failed.  WIth the intervention of Danny Quasar and the Airmen a special branch of the Galatic Rangers.  Not only did they stop the Raiders advance but saved Johnny and his adoptive brother Bran.  The young Johnny had been inspired!  And now...

I do apologize now since most of the Postit Adventures have not been properly edited.  That will happen later.  

OTHER STUFF: 
The likelihood of more Corpse Cop stuff is in the works and all of it scratchboard.  Other changes like the posiblity of bringing on Mister Jason Pott on as co-writer for some other comic company other than Black Box Comix.
  More on this development as things begin to happen for next year.


MORE OTEHR STUFF:


Within the last week  there have been some additions to Black Box Comix curriousidy of Seppuku Comics and owner Adam Watson.  That’s right that Adam Watson.  Of the last few months he has been on a personal hiatus but is now looking to come back into the game to let people know he has not folded up shop.  And what a better way than to get those hard to miss prints than to get them here:

"Cosmic Confrontation"

"Floating Brain"

"Halloween 2011"

"I'm Finished
































OLD BBC BLOG
