The “lost” guest artist pin-ups: Athena Currier

   Its ATHENA CURRIER Crossover Day!!!    That’s right!  I have a comic up on Athena’s webcomic “ACTION ATHENA” today, and she has an illustration here!  Next we’ll fight and then resolve our differences to battle the real foe in a classic crossover scenerio!  Or something…

   Athena is a Conspirator, buddy, frequent convention tablemate, and has popped up on this here blorg a few times before, but todays post is kinda special.  As I mentioned before this whole “lost” pin-up thing started because I was putting together a MANLY TALES OF COWARDICE collection and realized I had a TON of pin-ups–more than I’d ever be able to fit into any one collection without going broke printing it (note: that will happen anyway)–so the last thing I needed was any more pin-ups.  What I did need however was some kind of cover for the BRITISHWORTH short BRIAN BASTIAN and I did for LIL’ FUNNYRealizing I didn’t have a pin-up from Athena (and would certainly be including one if I did), I “commissioned”  her to do a Britishworth drawing, and as you can see it turned out wonderfully!  Thanks a ton, Athena!

the “lost” guest artist pin-ups: QUILLAN ROE

   QUILLAN ROE is known for his music way more so than his art, but damn if he ain’t a talented in both regards!  I’ve said a lot about how great Quillan is in the past, so check that out and then go enjoy his tunes.  Thanks, Q!

The “lost” guest artist pin-ups: Chole

CHOLE, aka That Wife Lady, actually did a whole bunch of BETSY ROSSBOT pin-ups one day a few years ago.  She claims to not like most of them, but I think they are pretty rad.  Aside from one that appeared in issue #4 this is my second favorite.

The “lost” guest pin-ups: James Powell (and the kids these days)

   JAMES POWELL is a crazy talented cartoonist, and I’m pretty honored my art gets to stand next to his in the pages of FALSE WITNESS: THE MICHELE BACHMANN STORY.  And in addition to being an illustrator, he is also a sometimes teacher of comics to the youth.  From what James tells me the kids love making comics, but they can’t not go three panels without killing off a main character.  As you can imagine, its kinda hard to teach the mechanics of sequential storytelling when the people you’re trying to teach don’t have anyone live long enough to tell a story.  So in one class James made a compromise with the kids–“Draw stories where everyone lives, and on the last day we’ll just do stories where the characters die!”   From what he tells me he drew the inspiration for this from the many deaths of Atlantis Lad in MANLY TALES OF COWARDICE.  So when that fated day came for the kids to draw some characters dying, guess who James had them kill off over and over…

   Thats just about the coolest thing ever!!!  Thanks, James!

the “lost” guest artist pin-ups: Donn Ha

    You probably don’t know DONN HA.  You may have heard of his brother Gene, but you probably don’t know Donn.  BUT YOU SHOULD!  Donn is not only a talent cartoonist, but he’s also good with the computers and is the person I will forever be grateful to for working “STAPLEGENIUS” into the online game“FIVE MINUTES TO KILL YOURSELF”.  It’s true!  Go play it and use the stapler.  Now that’s what I call a fan!  Thanks, Donn!

The “Lost” Guest Artist pin-ups: Dan Murphy

So the last couple months I’ve been slowly working on putting together a MANLY TALES OF COWARDICE collection. I am finally almost done, and one of the highlights of doing such a project was rediscovering several pin-ups my friends had drawn that I had yet to produce an issue of MANLY TALES to feature them in.  Well, I’m pretty sure I’m done making MANLY TALES OF COWARDICE now, so instead of denying the world the pleasure of seeing these drawings another day I’m going to post them here for the next couple weeks.  Enjoy!  (I know I do every time I look at them!) 

   The first “lost” pin-up is by my friend and collaborator of 2o years DAN MUPRHY!  I’ve written PLENTY about our collaborations in the past, so please go read up on them NOW if you haven’t already.  What I can say about this particular drawing is that it was done last year for a short MANLY TALES project that never quite got off the ground, but Dan being the pro he is held up his end of the bargain.  What a guy!  Thanks again, Murph!
