Elemental Comic Book Characters

I finally got an account on and I am looking forward to participating in the Jam Sessions, especially the Superhero ones. For December their theme is Elementals. So, step one for me is to make a list of all the Elemental superheroes I can think of. Then draw him, or her, or them.

Anyways the first thing that this theme reminded me of was Continuity Comics Urth 4. Which was kind of a take on the Fantastic Four and a pre-cursor to Captain Planet. Anyways, I think I bought every issue.

Others who came to mind include:

Human Torch
The Thing
Hydro Man
Captain Cold
Mr. Freeze

* if the Pyro, Sandman, Hydro-Man and Elektro ever became a super-team they would be Marvel Comics' evil version of Earth 4.

Japanese spiderman

Okay, sense I posted Italian Spiderman, it only seems right to also post this- Japanese Spider-Man! As I understand it, this show was done back when Japan didn't have much respect for U.S. copyright law, and was done without Marvel's permission or knowledge. Although you do see in the credits they give Marvel copyright credit. I gotta say though, Spider-Man vs Big Japanese robots could be fun.

Young Frankenstein - two great actors

One of my favorite scenes with two great actors Peter Boyle and a young Gene Hackman who always looked old for some reason. Anyways, this one is a classic.

DC Comics is taking over?

Coming out of my favorite Bay Area comic shop today, (Comicrelief in Berkeley) I noticed something peculiar. I had actually purshased more DC comics than Marvel comics. This might be the first time this has ever happened to me in my life. I grew up a Mighty Marvelite, addicted to Stan's Soapbox and just felt like a part of the Marvel community. My best friend was an X-men fan, and the other kids I knew who knew comis were into Wolverine.

I was a bit of a weirdo, and my favorite character was Hawkeye (that's right Bendis, another one of us). But, I never really cared much for any of the DC characters, I was a huge fan of the Superman movies with Christopher Reeve and later the Batman movie by Tim Burton. Of course, I didn't like Batman until about the 3rd or 4th viewing, and then I LOVED it. That's true about all Tim Burton movies with me though, and a story for another day.

So why am I buying DC now? I guess because they've done a better job in the exclusive contracts war. They've got the top talent, that I like. I think it started with the Kubert Bros. But, now it seems they've got the lions share of talent in the comic world. I mean Grant Morrison is writing Batman. How do you not pick that up? Chuck Dixon is writing Batman and the Outsiders, with art by Julian Lopez - who I must confess I was not familiar with, but his art blew me away. Gail Simone and the Dodson's on Wonder Woman- wow! And, Mark Waid and George Perez are doing the Brave and the Bold. What more could anyone ask for?!

Another amazing drawing

Kevin Shriver, the initial penciler for the comic book "Projekt Werwolf" had original penciled, this piece for inclusion in our booklet for the Comic Book Challenge. It was originally inked by yours truly.

Today, Kevin sent me this. This..... masterpiece. He went back and inked it himself. And dang if he didn't knock it out of the park. I even love the signature.

Werwolf Premieres (For real this time)

Today it is finally up! You can view "Projekt Werwolf" at Please go and check it out. It will be there as a webcomic with weekly updates of new pages. I am really excited to be working with Komikwerks, and hope that something really good can come from the added exposure that they are offering this book.

Strongbad gave me some advice on how to do a webcomic, and I thought it was pretty good:
