Dave Does Comics- Fulltime!
Heard from my Bushi Tales comics partner Dave Beaty this week. He had some good news- he had just turned in his two weeks notice at his day job so he could draw comics full time! For the past year or so he’s been doing some side work for DC, Marvel, and Aspen, with Scott Clark including last year’s X-Men: Sword of the Braddocks and the DCU Holiday Special.
Here are a couple of his new projects that are coming out soon-
JUSTICE LEAGUE: CRY FOR JUSTICE #7 (OF 7)
On Sale FEBRUARY 24, 2010
Written by JAMES ROBINSON; Art by MAURO CASCIOLI with SCOTT CLARK & DAVE BEATY!
This is the big one! After the catastrophes seen in issues #5 and #6, a hero loses control, leading to an unexpected ending that will fundamentally change the lives of the World’s Greatest Heroes forever. This issue launches a major storyline in the DC Universe and is not to be missed.
On sale MARCH 17
Written by EDDIE BERGANZA
Art by ANGEL UNZUETA with SCOTT CLARK & DAVE BEATY!
Spotlight on Red Arrow! As Roy Harper lies in critical condition after the events of JUSTICE LEAGUE: CRY FOR JUSTICE #5, his fever dreams show him the perfect future life he wants for the Titans. Unfortunately for him, it’s a life the Titans will never see.
Hopefully he’ll be able to announce what else he’s got lined up soon.
Lex Luthor For Sale
If you’d like one of my paintings now’s your chance!
I originally did this to show at the Superman Celebration in Metropolis, IL a couple years ago, and ended up donating it to the HERO Initiative art auction at the Phoenix Cactuscon. Noel Neill (the ORIGINAL Lois Lane) was kind enough to sign it for me before the auction (she starred with Kevin Spacey in Superman Returns).
Well, it’s back up for auction– this time on ebay by Brandon Ladd Burkey, owner of Crossroads Entertainment Co., LLC. and the guy who bought it in Phoenix. Minimum bid is $200 and apparently you get one of my sketchbooks, too.
Best I remember this one is approx. 2’x3′ and it’s airbrush acrylic on canvas.
PHOENIX OR BUST!
Speaking of PHX, it’s official- Dave and I have been listed as guests for this May’s Phoenix Cactuscon. We’ll be there with Micah and Nicki and are looking forward to checking out the new con digs!
Oh- Noel Neill will be there, too!
Hope to see you there-
