'The PARTY' by Fred Hembeck

This is a strip by Fred Hembeck from 1986 and pretty much sums up Marvel's attitude to Jack kirby, the man who that company owes the most. The sad  thing is that it seems to be as relevant now as it was then.

Jack 'the King' Kirby sitting at his drawing table, simple and classic....

Evan Dorkin's 'Welcome To Eltingville' animated pilot...

This is the pilot episode of 'Welcome to Eltingville' (2002) which was made for Cartoon Network's, Adult Swim and is based on the excellent comic book Dork! by Evan Dorkin.





Unfortunatley is was never made into a series which could be just a case of bad timing because it contains all the elements of what is now a called 'geek culture' that have made shows like the Big Bang Theory so popular.

Doctor Who Anime.....

This is just a solid gold peice of work which features a version of the Cybermen the TV show would to well to take note of......Extra kudos has to be given for bypassing the crowd pleaser that is David Tennant and going for the very underrated third Doctor John Pertwee.
