When I got a chance to buy the original for this piece at Heroes, I lept at it like a geek getting a chance to spout Admiral Ackbar’s catchphrase. See more of Chris’s work at the Kickstand Kids blog or over on Tumblr.
This was my holiday gift from Ming Doyle, artist on The Loneliest Astronauts and much, much more.
I got her the crummy 90s X-Men cartoon on DVD.
Bought this from Samnee after seeing it on his sketch blog. I think it’s pretty obvious why I needed to own it. He’s also got a sketchbook that’s well worth your laundry quarters.
Bought this on a whim from the Periscope Studio shop on Etsy.
See my J Jonah Jameson collection.

The Star Trek nerd in me desperately wants to write a comic about Sarek and Amanda’s romance and Ming sending me stuff like this isn’t helping one bit.
I probably should have waited until tomorrow and the new She Died In Terrebonne, but I really couldn’t resist once I found it in the vast Agreeable Comics archives. I asked TJ Kirsch if he’d draw The Loneliest Astronauts for me, but the reply was something I really don’t think I should try without a medical team on standby.
TJ’s in the middle of multiple deadlines for real-world, actually-paying comics and sometimes, something’s gotta give. You’ll be seeing his work in multiple books for Oni soon, including a backup in Resurrection (which also featured Chris Sims, Chad Bowers and Rusty Shackles in a recent backup) and a short in Jam! Tales From The World Of Roller Derby, and I’m pretty sure you’re going to want to check out his work in those. TJ also did some very stunning work for Sam Costello’s Split Lip horror webcomic (traitor!) that you should be seeing pretty soon.
Also, he drew me a Wolverine at the Boston Comic Con to shut me up, so here it is. I now want to do a Wolverine comic with him that’s literally just eight pages of Wolverine in a bar fight, not popping his claws, just straight up wailing on dudes. Marvel, you have my contact information.
Despite the hustle and bustle of Free Comic Book Day at Comicopia, I managed to get this sketch of Jubilee by Ming because she likes drawing her and I actually really like Jubilation Lee in the way that I like a lot of Marvel’s c-list characters. Unfortunately, neither of us had a decent camera on hand to capture the rest of her sketches, but you can view cameraphone images in this directory.
How I got someone so talented to draw a couple of astronauts arguing over minute pop culture trivia is beyond me.
Looks like he’s sold out of Funrama #1 at the moment, but you could do much, much worse than spending $3 ($5 with shipping included) on this post-apocalyptic romp that is an unholy mashup between Tank Girl, and The Authority. Visit Kelly’s blog for more details.
My The Loneliest Astronauts collaborator Ming has the Jubilee she created at Boston Comic Con, but I had to have this Frank Castle. Had. To.
I have nothing to add other than I need to see this immediately. (And the original, of course, but I am pretty sure I get the whole “It’s a robot geisha” thing fairly quickly.)
You can look at other things from the gang at Periscope Studios when you visit their new Etsy shop.
Special thanks to Steven from Hey Oscar Wilde! for giving me the heads-up on the auction for these. It’s pretty much a perfect storm of things I like in comics, and it’s fantastic to own some of Mike Wieringo’s work.
