Recently I started reading a Found Magazine collection. It’s a voyeuristic collection into people’s lost letters/notes/drawings/etc that exposes people in ways they might not knowingly ever share. Magazine founder Davey Rothbart has a monthly segment on Bullseye that is always good.

Tonight I dug up the only submission I ever made. Found in 2011 at a community park near my parent’s house underneath of neighboring swing seats. Not connected to a school makes it difficult to guess how old Rylee & Bailey were when they made their pact.

Very sweet and very sincere.

Last summer (2013) I remember looking under the same seats. The writing is gone but I wasn’t able to tell if the seat was replaced or Rylee  Bailey went back and removed it.

Still working out my flabby drawing muscle.

First time attendee at the Oakland Drink & Draw. So thankful nobody hazed me for only drinking a milkshake.

Anyway, I did this Kamala Khan, Ms. Marvel, drawing and finished it up at home by adding in Lockjaw of the Inhumans.

The Spirit of BACARDÍ is a graphic novel available online for free here. A biography of Emilio Bacardi with words by Warren Ellis & art by Michael Allred.

Recently I visited a rum distillery in Nassau so this book has timely personal interests. Also, it amuses me that Emilio Bacardi in the center of the panel below looks like John Hodgman.

John Hodgman is famous for saying “I don’t have a sweet tooth, but I do have an alcohol molar.”

Found a non-licensed DVD today. A personal favorite moment is presented here without tags.

The passion I have for the Fantastic Four is unequaled by any other superhero book. I love everything about the Four. The characters. The type of time bending cosmic stories. I love it all. Unlike any other group they are a family.

The elements of what I love most about the Fantastic Four are also what it make one of the most difficult books to write. This is painfully obvious in the current James Robinson run on the book. The outlook for the Fantastic Four is murky at best. Rumors of cancellation swirled last month. The movie re-interpretation doesn’t help with continuity.

But there is hope. There’s always hope.

1. The back catalog remains in print. Marvel is releasing in November an omnibus of the second half of Jonathan Hickman’s run (my favorite of the past 15 years on the title).

2. 100th Anniversary Fantastic Four from just a few weeks ago. This was a one off special (no matter what the last panel implies) with non-traditional art and fresh talent that proves the Four can appeal to younger readers.

3. Ultimate FF. This was a surprise to me too. I lost interest in Ultimate universe as the Cataclysm event ended. Out of that event came “Ultimate Marvel Now” with a relaunch of the Ultimate books. I tried the first issue and was immediately dismissive. I was wrong. This last weekend I picked up issues #2-5. Everything I love about the Four from 616 universe exists here in the Ultimate universe. PLUS ULTIMATE SPIDER-HAM! And other Ultimate animal superhero variants (a platypus Galactus!). The art of the ah-mazing Andre Araujo.

Catching up on a book means I’m late on the sad news. Ultimate FF was canceled. The last issue will be #6 due out this month.

…a darn shame. You can’t break up a family.
