Sorry we've been away for a little bit. We've all been really busy here in the garage cooking up new comics and whatnot. There's a bunch of upcoming events and books to talk about though so it's time to procrastinate with a super-gigantic Garage-Art-blog post!

Hero Initiative Archie (And Avengers)
Item! Y'all probably know that we at the studio are huge Hero Initiative supporters. You may also know that the newest Hero Initative sketch cover project (Featuring sketch covers by Fleecs, Moreno, Rodriguez AND Dos Santos amongst others) is called Archie: 50 Times an American Icon. You may have heard that I drew the sketch that's on the cover of that upcoming collection. But did you know that the book is available for pre-order right now?! That's right it's in the November 2010 Previews Catalog, take a look!
Previews Order#: NOV10 0953As always, if you don't know where to find your local comic shop, check out the Comic Shop Locator.
ARCHIE 50 TIMES AN AMERICAN ICON SC
The covers themselves have started going up on ebay so if you've got some dough to contribute to a good cause-- head on over there and put a bid down.
Also, we all contributed to the upcoming Hero Initiative New Avengers #1 Cover project. The Initiative's posted up a couple of those, so I'm sure it's OK to post those up here too. Check them out:
ITEM! Chris Moreno's newest creator owned masterpiece debuts in the next issue of Terminal Press' Zombie Bomb anthology. I have read it and I can say without hesitation that it's his best work to date. Definitely worth searching out when the book drops.
Chris has been posting some process stuff over at his Deviantart. Here's a look at some of that.
Marvel Heroes and Villains Trading Cards
The newest Marvel/Rittenhouse card set came out recently, it features rare sketch cards from all the guys in the studio. Head out to your local comics and cards shop or hobby shop or whatever and pick up a box- every box has an original sketch inside... Some of those original sketches are by us. OR hit up ebay and search for us over there.
We've all got Artist Proof cards from the Heroes and Villains set. If you're interested in commissioning one of us to draw on an artist proof card for you, all you have to do is ask... and then pay money...
Long Beach Comic Con Wrapup
Thanks to everyone who came out and supported at the 2nd annual Long Beach Comic Con. We had a great time out there. To wrap up today's post, here's a look at some of the sketches from the show as well as all the new prints that we debuted at the show. Enjoy!
Ok, that's all for now (That's more than enough, right?) Thanks for checking in with us, we'll be back soon with more.
