Sad Days for Comic books... the battle continues!

So, I was looking around for a birthday card for my brother in-law this past weekend and I stumbled onto a card that was a sad indication of what my favorite medium's status is nowadays.

Here's a little lead-in to the card: It recounts the glory days, and waxes nostalgic, building up to the happy birthday and what a great life you've been living punchline... blah, blah, blah. Suffice to say, It's not the card I bought, but I took a pic of something in it that bugged me:

Apparently, reading a ton of comic books is now considered nostalgia... (okay, granted the context of the card is talking about childhood as well, but lumping it with penny candy and fountains in drugstores? Dem's foitin' woids!)

Meh. Rant over. Bomb squad #2 will soon be entering the battlefield!

Speaking of which, I have 19 pages done and wanted to post up a few pages, but I didn't want to ruin the 'ending' of book 2 either, so my posts on the final pages might be few and far in between. Not to worry, you may not see all of it, but I'm still working on it.

I'll try to post some more other art on this blog though. Here's a little hint at what it could be:

Anyways, good night and God Bless! The Neverending Battle continues!

My talented family

Just thought to share a few cool things I've been seeing from my nephews and my wife this past month or so. Basically, my nephews are awesome. My sister's been sending me a few drawings they've been doing lately of superheroes and they're great! They've really been a great inspiration and a good way to keep progress on my own comic book in check! Though I have to admit I'm having a real hard time keeping up!

My nephew Joaquin, pumps out most of these images, but my other nephew, Ramon, also likes to keep up with big brother.

Hulk Smash!! (by Joaquin)

Mighty Thor! (by Joaquin)
And not to be outdone by his Brother, Ramon has his version too!

The world's finest! Definitely my favorite of the bunch! (by Joaquin)
And last but definitely not the least, since we came back from Wondercon, my wife has gotten into felting. We had passed by this "Wool Buddies" booth at the con and she bought a kit. And after that she can't stop making her own. And more recently: making 'our' own. She's currently making the giant octopus creature from our proposal comic:

How cool is that octopus head, huh? That white figure on the side is my first attempt at this felting thing. It's fun but very time consuming! I'll finish that little project, but I'm going to have to postpone felting so I can get back to finishing my comic! One project at a time, right? Okay, 'til next time!
