Eye-Popping Comics No. 1 by Attn2DTale Eye-Popping Comics No. 1 by Attn2DTale
I give you the Minutemen!

I did my best to combine the sensibilities of the Watchmen with those of 1940s comics AND pay homage to another great mid-'80s title that began it's run just before the Watchmen took off.

To fill you in the whys and wherefores:

I did this piece for the upcoming Philadelphia Cartoonist Society tribute book, called The Children of the Watchmen (a title that's catchy and terrifying all at the same time!). The book will feature many great artists from the Philly area (and expatriates like myself) doing kick-ass interpretations of the characters from the book.

The book will have it's "official" debut on the evening of Friday, November 7, at the Brave New Worlds comic shop in Philly, located on 2nd street between Market and Arch. Artists from the book will be there to do signings and sketches, and original art and prints from the book will be on display and some for sale. More details to come. (The book might even unofficially debut at the Baltimore Comicon; stay tooned for more info!)

(Pencils inked with Pitt pens, grayscaled and SPFX'd in Photoshop, and banner and text added in Illustrator. "Eye-Popping Comics" logo copyrighted by me; all characters copyrighted by DC Comics.)

I cannot even begin to tell you how much this has just made my day. :D
Wonderful work through and through!

How do you go about getting one of these books? Or is it a 'you had to be there' sort of deal? XD

fhgjksdfjk I have not been paying your art enough attention and for that I strenuously apologize.

This is absolutely amazing and win. Much love. <3333 Especially the closeness of Hooded Justice, Silk Spectre, and Captain Metropolis.

nice tribute to jla n watchmen in 1. this one rocks.!it looks nice n beat up, like a crumpled paper bag texture applied. nice tiny little border on the left hand side where it looks like the cover moved cause its missing a staple! and nice marrying of gibbons style and a with a slightly older flare

I don't know. The Philadelphia Cartoonist Society collected a bunch of pinups from its members and will publish the book in early November. When I know more, I'll post it in my journal.
