Farewell Fear Agent – The End of an Era

December 13, 2011

Last month Fear Agent, one of my two favourite ongoing comics of the past few years ended (the other being The Boys).

For those of you that don’t know Fear Agent is an action-sci-fi-horror-pulp-esque space epic written by Rick Remender and illustrated by Tony Moore and Jerome Opena all of whom are badass. It tells the story of Heath Huston a drunkard, alien exterminator/bounty hunter and the last of the fear agents. He’s also from Texas and the luckiest ill fated cowboy ever to exist.

It has pretty much has everything anyone could ever want in life or comics (if you’re me anyhow). Things like time travel, space pirates, gladiatoral combat, zombies, giant robots of the stompy variety, ray guns, interdimensional jaunts, cowboys and plot twists galore. It does them well and nothing seems out of place.

This is my tribute to the ending of an era and a series I enjoyed very, very much. If you have’t read it, do so!

…And Doodles For All

July 22, 2011

I never go anywhere without my sketch book, as a result I end up showing quite a lot of people my doodles…

(ahem)

The results are quite mixed. People are either enthusiastic about them or they just go silent.

I recently finished a sketch book, ending a 6 month era and it got me thinking. What am I going to do with all of these books that I have finished? Leave them in a dark corner gathering dust or show them to people? Would anyone even want to see them?

I figure if I put them online at least people have the option of seeing them and it’s always nice when someone gets a kick out of my work.

Thusly, I shall be posting new and old doodles since I have a fair amount of material from not too long ago that I think is worth sharing.

Here are two to start off with..
