Re: LOTS of Greg Land covers this month....

I'm glad to see Greg doing so well.
In 1995 he did a great Kabuki on the first page of the Kabuki gallery.
Check it out to see his early stuff.
It also includes early Oeming, Dave Johnson, Rick Mays, Paul Pope, Brian Bendis and more.


Creators referring to creators in their books...
Jun 17, 2004 4:47 am

There is a thread on Millarworld about this that was sort of funny, and somemen told me I was mentioned about when Deena and Christion interview Kabuki. So I went to check it out.
It's kind of interesting.

And I posted with this response:

Hey friends,

That Oni special was a great one. I have the original art page that Oeming drew where Deena and Christian interview Kabuki and Oeming is sort of aping and poking at some quirks in one of my Kabuki art styles. It was a hilarious page.

And I remember that Drew Hayes thing. It is in one of Bendis' books. Maybe TRUE CRIME CONFESSIONS.

I think it was that I told Brian that Drew would be a sport about it. I knew Drew and Brian didn't. And at the time, Drew's look was a long haired, bearded sort of burly motorcyle gang look to him. So Bendis had the idea of poking at him in the letters collumn and I encouraged it. And then Drew showed up at a con growling and ranting at Brian and Drew's physical demeanor really took Brian by surprise which I think he cronicles in his book.

I also have the original art pages from Powers where they introduce a "Detective David Mack". And then Oeming proceeds to draw me for an entire story arc.

And remember that Powers arc they had where Warren Ellis does a ride along?

And here is something that I don't think is necasarily a poke, but it occured to me when I was having a dinner with Neil Gaiman and noticed that he has exactly the same distinct tooth as Spider Jerusulam. I only read the Transmet that I did art for and a couple early issues, so forgive me if this is common knowledge. But it made me think that Spider incorporated Gaiman's tooth, Alan Moore's bearded look when we first meet Spider in the first issue, and Grant Morrison's look when he is shaved bald. As an amalgam of the UK writer's in Ellis' stomping grounds. The entire thing occured to me when I was sitting next to Neil and noticed his tooth as we were eating sushi, so it could be nothing or it could be common knowledge that I am not hip to. But the tooth is exact, and made me think that Warren had to do it on purpose.


Re: why was the ultimate spidey script book so damn expensiv
Jun 17, 2004 4:55 am

I got my copy. It is a really well done book. Super informative and full of great commentary.

And I like that Bendis credits me in his intro as getting him a job at Marvel. It was hilarious how he suggests how to break in "Wait until your best friend does and then ride his coat tails" or something like that.

He gave me way to much credit. The rest of the intro is funny too. How he says Joe doesn't want his art. Just his writing.

The whole thing is super cool. I would have loved a book with scripts and commentary like this when I was younger and trying to figure out how to write for other artists.

Yes Sushi is GOOD. Probably my favorite meal.

My faves are Unagi (eel) Saba (mackeral) and SALMON!

Love the salmon any way you do it. Spicy tuna is probably fourth on my list.

Hmm. What to make an ad of? I think I might make one for Tang.

Or I could just make an ad for my trades like usual.
No, definitely Tang!
