While I myself shall not, alas, be able to participate in the annual awesomeness that is Granite State Comic Con this coming weekend, I still eagerly urge the rest of you to getchyerselves up to Manchester and bask in the amazing show of creativity. As always, neglect not Artists' Alley! It is there that the new universes are being birthed, and from where the eventual new fandoms will emerge. Have a wonderful time my dears!

Glamorous comic book illustrator life. Every panel has to convey movement, even if just implied. Some days you draw epic fight scenes or futuristic cityscapes.
Some days you draw a men's room.

"Is anybody there? Does anybody care? Does anybody see what I see?"
Taylor Hooper as John Adams, quietly voicing the desperate questions that we as Americans must continue to revisit and re-examine, if we believe this Noble Experiment still holds any hope.
As a high school student this musical very much kindled my passion for this era in American history and had a direct influence on my graphic novel The Monitor's Guild. Having now been a part of this production myself, I very much hope that very same interest might have been awakened in another impressionable young mind.
A blessed Independence Day commitment to us all, my dears.

Hope everyone's summer is shaping up beautifully and that it is overflowing with comic book awesomeness. New retailer in town that I want to talk about: Counterplay in Woburn, MA. First comic/collectible retailer that I know of, that also caters to cosplayers! Go check 'em out.

Secretary Charles Thomson reads out the names of the signatories to the Declaration of Independence. John Adams solemnly adds his name while John Hancock looks on. Stephen Hopkins of Rhode Island and the Rev. Jonathan Witherspoon of New Jersey await their turn.

Secretary Charles Thomson puts in another night of unpaid overtime whilst the Second Continental Congress delegates adjourn to the nearest Philadelphia tavern. Thomson doesn't mind the inane committee names and the endless continuing resolutions, but the dispatches from Gen. Washington in New York are really getting depressing.

Some wonderful artwork and accompanying thoughts from Luciano Vecchio (link is to Tumblr). Me, I love the idea that Diana and T'Challa occasionally hang out at the United Nations and catch up on the gossip from Those Dysfunctional Teams they occasionally must hang out with.

Glad to learn that @TheRealStanLee is doing well! But I'm not so sure if I believe the reports that he's convalescing at a private institution somewhere in Westchester County. #dailybugle #mutantandproud #excelsior

YES there's a "sportsball" championship game coming up and you damn well know what it's called. Stop dissing other people's nerdy fandoms, Mister 'Speaks-Fluent-Klingon' and Ms. 'Memorized-Every-Battle-of-the-Second-Age.'
Sincerely, Mister 'Knows-Every-Rogue-Squadron-Pilot.'

A difficult year, but one that still saw some new art and illustration released into the world nonetheless. Here’s hoping 2018 goes a little more smoothly, for all of us. In the meantime thank you my dears for all your love, support, and encouragement. It really does mean everything.
