Interim Update - Check This Stuff Out!

Apologize again for the lack of recent updates.  As you can see from the "Pending Commission" tab, the number of projects in progress is increasing, however it will be a little while yet before some of these come to fruition.

In the meantime, I highly recommend checking out some of the side projects by artists featured on this site.

First up - Cluedog - has put out a beautiful collection of the first 3 issues (nearly 100 pages) of his incredible original comic series "Opey the Warhead" - featuring the world's only living nuclear warhead and his post-apocalyptic adventures.  I've mentioned it at least once before on this site - but I cannot recommend this comic highly enough.  Very funny, very touching, with more of Cluedog's incredibly expressive art than you can shake a stick at - more than worth the price (very good quality printing).  The series is temporarily on hiatus while the man works on his new series "Miss Doomsday" - but I don't think there's any question that we'll be seeing more of Opey in the future.  There are just too many unanswered questions.

Next up is a tight sketch book being put out by Snareser this holiday season - details here.  52 pages of full-color art, and the price includes shipping.  If you've only checked out Snareser's tg commissioned art here and elsewhere, you're doing yourself a disservice - especially if you're a comic book fan.  This guy has got some real talent and it shows.  I've only posted a couple comic character commissions from him so far, but I've got more in the works and you can see a massive variety of characters on his DA page any time.  The best part of this offer is that your book will come with a unique black and white bust/head-shot on the back cover of any character you choose.

Lastly, one of the most interesting webcomics out there - certainly the most dense ongoing one I've ever come across - I gotta recommend "Among The Chosen" by master visionary Solios.  For new readers, it's pretty much imperative to start with the second book - The Dualist - this is one massive work in progress, but trust me, once it picks up, it really gets going.  A great combination of intelligent writing and excellent art, it's an excellent yarn.
