Still looking to raise a few additional bucks to help cover the cost of some unexpected car repairs. So am going to have some sales on my original comic art. I listed some MARS ATTACKS POPEYE pages a while ago -- now here are some pages from THE BATMAN STRIKES. All are penciled by Christopher Jones and inked by me. Typically priced at $75.00 or so -- here's the sale deal -- any two pages for $100.00, and I'll cover shipping (in the US or Canada). Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve or ask questions. First come, first served, as always. Reflection is from the plastic sleeves of the portfolio -- sorry 'bout that....
I'm extending the Mars/Popeye art sale for another week -- and will be doing a Phantom art sale SOON (maybe even later today).
This sale ends one week from today.
The Batman Strikes #41 page 19 (Harley, Ivy, Batman, Robin) and #18 page 2 (Batgirl - title splash)
The Batman Strikes # 13 page 14 (Batman close-up) and page 17 (Batman, Catwoman) PAGE 17 SOLD
The Batman Strikes #13 page 19 (Batman, Catwoman and morphing Clayface). #37 page 17 Solomon Grundy, Killer Croc, Batman)

NOTE: Sale extended until June 21! Remember, take $40.00 off the listed prices! Take $60.00 off per page if you buy more than one!
Well folks, we're having an interesting time here -- and by interesting, I mean a whole lot of unexpected expenses have popped up (much-needed car repairs, etc.) -- and the bank account is a bit shy of what we need. So -- time for some art sales!
Offered here are what I have left of the original hand-inked pages from the remarkably well-received MARS ATTACKS POPEYE comic book, published by IDW. These were inked in pen on 11x17 bristol board over blue-line print outs of my digital pencils. Lettering is (mostly) digital and printed on the board -- a font of my creation based on vintage Popeye strip lettering.
As you can see, I have 9 of the 22 pages available here. I kept a few pages, and writer Martin Powell was given the "Wha's a Marshkin?" page -- the rest have been sold or traded. Kansas City folks can see some -- including the double page spread, on display at Clint's Comics.
The prices listed are my original asking price -- but for the purposes of this sale, for ONE WEEK only, starting today, you can take $40.00 off the per page price -- take $60.00 per page off if you buy more than one. I'll cover shipping costs (in the US).
This may be my one and only shot at drawing Popeye for print -- and once this small batch of pages is gone, it's gone. Contact me at email@example.com to reserve pages and for payment info (Paypal preferred). First come, first served, as they say. T'anks for lookin' and remembers to eats yer spinach! Arf arf arf!!!
Page 3: Sea Hag and Martians. One Martian in bottom right panel is hand-drawn -- the rest (in that panel) are pasted up "stats." $150.00
Page 4: Popeye and Castor with the Jeep! One Roughhouse Restaurant sign is a paste-up. $200.00
Page 9: Olive, Wimpy, Castor and Prof. Wottasnozzle. $150.00
Page 11: Wimpy (duck gag!), Olive, Castor, Popeye, Goons, Martians and Sea Hag! $200.00

Another double dose of The Phantom. When I read the script for the first strip shown here, I thought I'd better look up past strips to see how previous artists had drawn Hero's corral, for continuity's sake. After searching through YEARS of strips, I found two panels, both of which showed the simple wooden fence you see below. As Mandrake says, "That's it! SIMPLE!"
As for the second strip -- yes, John Romita Sr.'s Gwen Stacy DID make a big impression on me when I was a kid.
I was also amused, that, after drawing this, while watching the 1966 BATMAN movie with my four year old son (his request!) -- I realized our ship's Captain looks a whole lot like that film's Commodore Schmidlapp! Those early impressions stick.
