The Beast being gay was an off the cuff remark during his second mutation in the Morrison era.

It was something like he didn't know if he was gay, straight or human anymore. It was more of a statement that he was losing his humanity.


Now, Hercules of the Avengers was implied to have fucked a teenage boy.

Having just finished The Black Vortex crossover and the Iceman is gay issue Epilogue, there's something really off putting connection the revelation.

During the Black Vortex, time displaced Bobby got cosmic powers. At the end of Black Vortex, there was a condition that you could return the powers but be changed by the experience.

So, is Marvel saying that the Black Vortex turned him gay? Bendis seems to try to swerve around it with Angel's explanation of keeping his powers, but the inverse effect is still there.

Which is really sad, because these were two good issues.

Especially because Star Lord and Kitty Pryde got engaged at the end of the Black Vortex and it was the first big moment that Kitty got since Whedon started fucking with her back in 2005.

You know who never gets enough love?

Hank Ketcham.

Bought a bunch of the collected Dennis the Menace books last week and can't stop trying to draw with that sort of line. Confident, deceptively simple, and fucking on point every single time out of the gate.

I never got that deep into comic strip work. I dig Eisner (of course), Caniff and a few others.

Still, there's something to be said for the comedic talents.

Since it was more of kids comic than anything else, I feel Ketcham gets overlooked. But he has that same natural sensibility to his compositions (mostly in the acting of his characters) that Rockwell also exhibited.

And yeah, Milt was an incredible talent that most don't know about or just don't take the time to study.

Noel Sickles was also criminally underrated though a few modern guys are trying to bring his name back into the fold (and rightly so).

I dig that. But, I guess my brain is so hardwired on a certain style that it's hard to break.

Huge fan of Hal Foster's work on Prince Valiant. When I was a student at the Joe Kubert School, there used to be original strip artwork on display in the hallways near Joe's office. Seen up close, the line work Foster used was incredible and fascinating to figure out how he drew everything. Also saw some Foster work done in silver point, where the silver he drew with changed to a brownish color as time passed.

I keep forgetting that you went to Kubert School. I was on a teleconference call a few weeks ago with his granddaughter. Cool lady.

Never graduated, though. Four years of high school followed by four years of college with summer jobs (not just Six Flags, folks!), freelance, work, etc. without a break. When I hit Kubert's, I lasted for one semester before I burned out. I eventually took night courses taught by folks like Mike Chen and Lee Weeks. Even had a great portfolio review by Tom DeFalco.

Then the 90s happened and the comics industry went kerflooey. Wound up working on advertising in local magazines, and the rest is history.

Still draw comic/sci-fi/fantasy stuff on occasion, though!

If you only knew how long it took me to find some decent reference for that pic, Ig. Internet had a piddling few pics to work from.

How so? Never got that vibe from him in class. Though he has put on a fuckton of weight, it seems.

I did get to see pencils and inks from some of his work on Daredevil way back when, including this piece (minus the colors):

Nope, and screw you for making me laugh, Josh. (I kid, you complete me.)

I saw some dude with the hair and the face in some magazine and since the character had similar hair, "boom" goes the dynamite.
