In a brave new world where practically every cartoonist by now scans his or her original art and sends us discs or drops files on our server, Gilbert Hernandez remains staunchly stuck in the 20th century, whence he FedExes us fat packages of art every time we have a new book of his to release. And thus today we were blessed with a FedEx carton containing his 50 count 'em 50 pages for the next issue of Love and Rockets: New Stories, premiering in San Diego in July.
Here's one of 'em. (Click for a bigger version.) You'll get to see the other 49 later this summer.
Love and Rockets über-collector Thomas Rehhoff wanted to get in on the fun of sharing superhero sketches by Xaime & Beto and sent along a link to this fantastic vintage collaborative piece from his collection, with Luba as the Bat and Maggie as Robin. Check out Thomas's whole collection of L&R originals and feel the jealousy!
On his Here Lies Richard Sala blog, Richard Sala posted this drool-inducing photo of original pages for his forthcoming graphic novel The Hidden, along with an update on the status of the book, which is now complete and undergoing production. He also points out an eerie incidence of life imitating comics, which, if you know his work, is rather ominous.
Paul Hornschemeier, who says he feels bad about not updating his blog more often, is compensating by offering 20% off everything in his online shop (prints and original art) through Thursday (March 24). See here for more details and the secret magic discount code!
If you have the means please consider making a purchase or donation to Hans Rickheit as he searches for a new job after his place of employment shut down. He has plenty of stunning original pages for sale or you can buy a book or even just slide him a few bucks for his acclaimed free webcomic Ectopiary. See all your options listed and linked here. Yep, we're all getting rich off of comics, boy howdy.
Ragged Claws Network posted this scan of an original Jack Davis page from the 3rd issue of Humbug — unfortunately we didn't have this original when we were compiling our complete Humbug collection, but we have a scan on file now and it's certainly a candidate for inclusion in the Jack Davis art book we're putting out late this summer, Jack Davis: Drawing American Pop Culture!
