The recent double whammy of storms in the Philippines has caused horrific damage. Artist Greg LaRocque has organized a charity auction on Facebook. Please take a minute to look at the items for sale and place a bid.
Wednesday’s Heroes is also doing it’s part, and will be posting original pages by stunning artist Michael Jason Paz. Michael’s lushly inked pages from Agents of Atlas #1, and Dark Reign New Nation #1 will all be 10% off. Michael inked all the pages over blue line copies of Carlo Pagulayan’s pencils.
Some may know Michael’s name from my own personal collection of commissioned art. If you check out my comicartfans.com gallery, you’ll see that Michael isn’t only an incredibly talented inker, he’s got the insane skills with a pencil. I highly suspect he’ll be as red hot soon. Grab these pages now while owning some of his work is still affordable! And know by doing it you’re helping a family in need. It’s win win!
Let me begin this with Cher…
“I was born in the wagon of a travellin’ show
My mama used to dance for the money they’d throw
Papa would do whatever he could
Preach a little gospel, sell a couple bottles of Doctor Good”.
Now that that is out of the way let us proceed.

Welcome aboard Mike and Richard!
I met Mike a few years back at WonderCon in San Francisco. We’ve kept in touch since, and I’m thrilled to have him aboard with us here at Wednesday’s Heroes. He’s funny and gracious guy and I think that comes through in his work. His Modok commission is one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen. Just a spectacular display of artistry and twisted sense of humor. Be sure to check it out in his gallery.
Richard is new to me, but it was immediately obvious that the guy has such incredible talent. His recent Batman and Robin piece really shows off his flair, but the addition of the woman in the window is what really grabbed me. That one little addition gives the piece so much more depth. It takes the piece from being a staged pin up and makes it a snap shot of life. It no longer looks posed. His work is an utter joy to look at.
I know many people say that the San Diego Comic Con has gotten too big. I disagree. To say it is too big is to limit it to what you believe it should (or could!) be.
Having said that, continuing to call this show Comic-Con is really a misnomer unless it’s still being used solely as an acknowledgement to it’s past.
