FREE COMIC DAY. What did I do? I spent the day with
good friends at Xtreme Comics in Boca Raton, Florida. I'm the guy
with the t-shirt. George Beliard, the most powerful man not in
comics showed up.
Darth showed up too which was cool because the guy never comes out of
About a month ago, Marvel Editor in Chief Joe
Quesada relaunched his weekly column on
www.Newsarama.com . To celebrate, he asked a bunch of his
artists pals to make "alternate covers" for the event. So, I thought
it would be cool to have him nestled comfortably into the prodigious chest of
She-Hulk! Great idea right? For some reason, this image shows
up distorted on the Newsarama site, so here it is at the correct dimensions!
Now you can truly enjoy this classic.
HALO CAKE! This is a
cake made by Becky from North Carolina for her 14 year old son. It was
done by printing my Halo painting on to edible paper. To think of my
painting dissolving away inside someone's stomach is really upsetting me!
ELEKTRA SHOOTER GLASSES.
If you were looking for a new way to down your whiskey, what better way than
these finely crafted Elektra shot glasses?

|NEW EMMA TOY Man o man, a friend brought me this new Emma
Frost action figure with my art on the packaging. I can't tell you
how much I miss doing these covers...she was truly one of my all time
favorite characters to paint. Let's check out the box art.....
yeah....I mean look at her... those eyes...that body...that
hair...those.....OH MY GOD!!! Emma?! What happened baby?!

- I GOT PUMPED AT WIZARD'S PHILLY SHOW.
Below is the Philadelphia Daily News from the weekend of
Wizard Philly (June 3rd, 2005 edition). Writer Jerome Maida wrote an
interview with me, and I did a lot of ranting that thankfully he edited out!
Anyway, the newspaper used my best known Emma Frost cover to #1 as an opener
to the article (and look how small Russell Crowe is) --is that freaking cool or what?! Thanks to Jerome for
bringing me some extra copies!
- GUILTY!!! Sometimes I like to play with my wood...I mean I love carpentry, but I have learned not to leave
pieces lying around because my dog will chew them all to bits (including my drawing
pencils!). Anyway, yesterday I had just finished trimming a
piece of moulding, and forgetfully left a small scrap on the floor.
The next thing I knew, she had picked up the scrap and scared the bejezus out
of me because it looked like she had whacky bucked-teeth! After I collected
myself I took these shots...
- I AM BEQUEVED SOME TREASURE...
On a recent trip to
the Dallas Comicon, I met Staff Sgt. Jesse Eladjoe. A member of the
United States Airforce who was so impressed with my artistic endeavours he decided I
deserved 250 bucks!! Well, 250 "Saddam bucks" that
is.... which I guess is worthless now... Is that what you really think of my
art Eladjoe?! I'm just kiddin Jesse--this is without a doubt,
one of the coolest gifts I've ever received. I'll treasure it
forever--thanks! (note the blood stain at the bottom--Geez!! don't mess with

about you cretins?) Righteously carved by Elizabeth Delaney

- Toys, Candy, and Tattoos!
to keep a gallery here of all the neat stuff that has been made from my artwork
for Marvel Comics. Here is some of the latest additions: The first image
below is a collectors tin that I painted Spiderman for-- not the greatest photo,
but I'm trying to show the effect of the metal tin shining through the art
to make those lightning bolts--it looks so cool in real life! Second
is a tattoo of Elektra #7 on the arm of my pal Bryan... whom I met this
year at DragonCon (thanks for the pic, dude). Third is a very nosey dog
amidst my Elektra candy--get the hell outta there you mutt!! Anyway, there is an Elektra watch/candy
thingee, a Pez
dispenser, and chocolate bar with poster wrapper. There is also a cool Elektra
GTO by "Johnny Lightning" which was really hard to find. The 4th
Pic shows all the images that were used for the Recharge cards Marvel put
out last year. The 5th photo are some Elektras from Europe--the first 5
were given to me by Jose & Agustin of Spain, while the 6th is a special MG
publishing Museum addition of Elektra #1 in German. Finally, the
last shot is some Black widow merchandise from Diamond Select, an Elektra coffee
mug, and the infamous Elektra candy-switchblade...see I told you it really
Check out the new Emma Frost statue
- ELEKTRA TOYS Below is
some of the latest Elektra merchandise including the infamous Elektra
cheese. Anyway, the first items are the Elektra toys by Maisto-- A
motorcycle (Ducati 748), jet (F-104 Starfighter), Monster Truck, and a
Honda s2000. Next to these are two spiffy fridge magnets. I'd
like to thank all my friends at MegaCon who went out of their way to track
this stuff down for me--including the ones who bitched that they could have been
standing in line for a nice Frank Cho sketch instead of running my
"errands"... There was also an Elektra candy switchblade
(I'm serious) called "Chillin' Cherry" , but my dog got to it before I
could get photos.
- ELEKTRA CHEESE!!!!
I'm walking through the supermarket last week
and I had the craving for those Mozzarella cheese sticks that they sell in
little bags. I picked up a pack and something real familiar caught my
eye--it was my Elektra art on the freakin' cheese! Then I broke out
laughing about how ridiculous it is to see Elektra on a cheese stick.
Anyway, now you diehard Elektra fans have something to put in your Elektra
lunchbox (below). Check out the pics....
- ELEKTRA LUNCHBOX and other merchandise by Dynamic Forces
There was a lot of merchandise launched with
the Elektra title, but for me, nothing was more anticipated than this wonderful object below. Never before has mankind been blessed with a lunchbox so
beautiful, so......perfect. And what lil' tyke wouldn't want to take the
world's deadliest assassin to school with him? Dynamic Forces has also
produced several Lithographs and posters of my cover paintings (Check their
gallery for more).
Here are some more goodies available from our
friends at Collectible Concepts. There was also an Elektra Pin Set
manufactured, but I'm not sure who makes it.
