Why do all of your long posts get labeled as rants? It’s like people don’t want to think critically, so they filed it under a “rant”…
Starstruck (1983) Eliane Lee & Michael Kaluta
Dark Knight Returns (1986) Frank Miller & Lynn Varley
American Flagg (1983) Howard Chaykin & Ken Bruzenak
Why didn’t the Miller TV head make it into the language more? I never understood that— instead people just ripped off, like, Batman being mean from the guy (including Miller!!), instead of this glaring technical stuff that helped make that book so good… Or maybe they do rip it off and I just missed those comics because I don’t look at the right comics. I mean, I guess people cared about the proliferation of television channels in the 80’s more than they do now since it was a thing going on. And if I saw a comic with, like, Batman worrying about what to put in a text message to a girl, or whatever modern equivalent, I wouldn’t be that into it. I mean, unless Batman came up with something really cool to sext some lady that we could all learn from. But he probably wouldn’t because he’d probably sext something about his parents being dead. So I don’t read Batman anymore. So, who’s missing out more here? It’s hard to say.
Personally I think it’s tedious to read this stuff. That’s why people don’t do it so much.

The new credits page for the Adventure Time ongoing comic book series! I designed this page (see my name in there?!) and I’m pretty excited for this issue because my pal Jim Rugg drew it!
You can check out a slick preview here.
Here’s a comic from ages ago that i never finished, it was originally going to be about 8 pages long but i ended up getting distracted by other work and it fell between the cracks. It features some fantasy pals before i even called them fantasy pals!
Me and Marian are gonna start a thing for fun where we each put up a drawing of a fictional crush every week.
This is my first one: Tomorrow Hardtack or Tommy from Jose Luis Garcia Lopez and Elliot S! Maggin’s 1983 graphic novel Star Raiders.
Anonymous asked: I'm really excited about Original Sin, most of all because I can't wait to see what Deodato's art, which I love, will contribute to the book! And that makes me wonder - after those eight issues, where can we look for more, what do we, Deodato fans, should be looking forward to?
Once we’re there, and we’re ready to announce it, you’ll hear about it.
But realize, you’re asking about what Deo will be doing after the thing that he’s doing that starts coming out in May and lasts eight issues. Who knows if any of us will still be alive at that point?
