Darkstar, The Winter Guard, and Bill Mantlo

Darkstar and the Winter Guard #3 arrives in comic stores this week. The series has been an absolute  joy to write! It is filled with bravado and bluster and has a bear riding on the back of a winged-dinosaur-like-creature. Good fun all around! So, I'd like to thank Steve, Scott, Val, Scott, and Jordan for all of their hard work. They really made this mini-series come alive.

But there is someone else I would like to thank. In fact, this book wouldn't be possible if it wasn't for his extraordinary efforts. Thank you, Bill Mantlo. You see, during his prolific career in comics, Bill brought a his remarkable talents to books like ROM, THE INCREDIBLE HULK, and the CHAMPIONS -- and he inspired a generation of comics readers, like myself.

Tragically, Bill has suffered through some hardships over the last few years – and now requires 24-hour long-term nursing care. And I would like to encourage anyone who bought DARKSTAR & THE WINTER GUARD -- or enjoyed Bill's tremendous contributions to the Marvel Universe to make a donation to his care. I hope we can all give back to him, what he gave to us. Those wishing to make direct donations to Bill Mantlo's long-term can do so through the address below:

Michael Mantlo

Thank you for your consideration and your support,

Hi again everyone, [Apr. 27th, 2010|01:31 pm]
Hi again everyone,

Don’t worry, this will be the last time I bug you all about this. :)

My good friends Aaron Alexovich and Drew Rausch currently have a comic in this month's Zuda competition. As you may know, the winner of the competition will earn a year-long contract with DC Comics. Aaron and Drew are really talented and lovely guys and I think they'd make an excellent addition to the Zuda community. I would consider it a personal favor if you took a moment to read the information below and read their comic here: http://www.neweldritch.com/.

If you like what you see, I encourage you to VOTE for the strip so that it can continue.
(THOUGH IT IS PERSONALLY IMPORTANT TO ME THAT THEY WIN)

1. Obviously, if you haven’t voted yet, please go to: http://www.neweldritch.com/ - register for the site and vote for ELDRITCH.

2. If you have already voted, thank you. But one thing I didn’t realize when I sent out my first initial email was that the final tally of points going toward the winner is a combination of votes, adding the strip to your “favorites” (which you can do since you’ve registered), and rating us 5-out-of-5 stars. All of these can be found in the same area where you initially voted for us. Going back and rating us 5-out-of-five and adding us as a favorite will go a long way towards putting us over the top.

3. Spread the word about the contest and “Eldritch.” Make notices on your Facebook pages. Tweet about the contest with a link to the Zuda Comics webpage. Tell friends, family, co-workers, etc.

Finally, again let me say thank you to everyone who voted with this contest. Drew and Alex are close personal friends and their success means a lot to me. Regardless of whether our team wins, we never would’ve placed as highly as we did without your help and I do appreciate it. Obviously, I’d like to be able to send out a big notice saying that we won, but if that’s not the case, at least we had a hell of a strong showing. And for that I’m very grateful.

And, I'll be back soon with more news about HIGH MOON!

David

Good afternoon folks,

Aaron Alexovich, whose comic work can be found in the Minx titles - Kimmie66  and Confessions of a Blabbermouth and in Vertigo's Fables, currently has a comic on Zuda called ELDRITCH. Alexovich, who also contributed designs for INVADER ZIM and AVATAR: THE LAST AIRBENDER is partnering with artist Drew Rausch, an artist who has worked for Boom Studios, APE Entertainment, and Slave Labor.



Their comic, which is currently in second place, details the origins of a bubbling infection that's about to overtake the California coastline. It's the kind of crazy antics you expect from two-clearly-insane creators.

If you are interested in seeing more of it, head over to http://www.neweldritch.com/ and VOTE, RATE, and FAVORITE the series! And for you production and art junkies, be sure to head over to http://sullengrey.blogspot.com/ to see some of the crazy design sketches!

It's that holiday time of the year - but as we all know, most holiday songs are total shit.

TDHBD provides an alternative to the standard holiday fare by offering some non-traditional and original songs to review and add to your holiday library. Some of these tracks are rare, some are personal favorites, and still others ... ummm ... unique. To conserve bandwidth, I'll be rotating these out from time to time, if you've missed one, drop me a line. Here are some of my personal favorites from last year:
