My friend Pablo Casado (one of the authors of the awesome Sabor Brasilis), has a new comic on the oven.
Mayara & Anabelle will come out here in Brazil in December, and the sinopsis reads (translation mine):
"Thanks to investigating too deep into things she shouldn’t have, Combat Assistant Tecnician Mayara has been transfered from the Uncommon Activities Secretariat of the State of São Paulo to the Secretariat branch in the state of Ceará.
Magic Technical Assistant Anabelle is none too happy about it. Along with the Secretary himself, she was the only employee of the Ceará Secretariat, and all she wanted was an intern to fill her activities reports.
Now she must share the small office in Fortaleza (Ceará’s capital city) with a ninja-wannabe transfer.
They will have to put their differences aside and work together, though, if they hope to defeat a menace that has not been seen in the streets of Fortaleza for over 20 years, and that has just resurfaced.”
I got the same feeling when Jeph Loeb used the Wendigo in a similar way on his Hulk Run. Was buying only for Art Adams’ art. At least they acknowledge, on panel, that the curse doesn’t work that way.
Right, but that does…
That’s a really cool sequence, i just might have to check it out!
Another cool Wendigo in comics is the one in Charlie Adlard and Mathieu Missoffe’s "Curse of the Wendigo". Italian Western comic “Magic Wind” also had a really great story with a downright CREEPY wendigo in one of its earlier issues.
But, hands down, my favourite take on the Wendigo is Antonia Bird's awesome 1999 movie, "Ravenous". It has just the right ammount of weird, creepy and darkhumour, Can’t recommend it enough.
I was organizing some old files, and came across this Scarlet Witch redesign I did a few years ago (as a matter of fact, expect some old drawings of mine to pop up around here every once in a while). I LOVE the character, and the way she’s been treated by Marvel over the last few years is really, really disheartening.
This is one I was really proud of after I finished - It was a rare case where I liked the redesign, the actual drawing, the body and facial expressions and even, at the time, the coloring. I’m not feeling the love for the coloring right now, though. :)
Reblogging myself, because I was just reading a few of the X-Men comics circa “Avengers vs. X-Men”, which led me to the actual limited series which led to me thinking about House of M and OHMYGOD how they screwed Wanda up!
I put that part of the text in bold because I posted this in freaking 2011, and it still hasn’t changed.
Drew this to celebrate the 9th anniversary of my relationship with my Hubby. We’re spending it apart this year, but we really got the long-distance thing down. Won’t be happening next year, thoug. The Big 10th will be something else!
The Pallas´s Cat, also called Manul, is a small wildcat living in the grasslands and steppe of central asia. It is named after the german naturalist Peter Simon Pallas, who first described the species in 1776.
That is the most expressive and gelatinous cat I have ever seen.
OMG that face. HAD to reblog because I’m sure northstarfan will love this guy.
Hi, my name's James - Gay, partnered, atheist, feminist, 105% nerd, Brazilian graphic designer by day, aspiring comic book artist by night. Or something like that.
This is my little Tumbler blog - I created it in order to properly follow all the OTHER Tumblrs I love, and it was supposed to be the lil'brother of my "proper blog", Pirâmide Sketchblog (http://piramide-asteca.blogspot.com).
However, it took a life of its own and is now my main blog. I'll be posting some drawings of mine and reposting cool stuff I find on the web, too.
Wanna ask me something, feel free to hit the "ask" button!
