Mage #8

When I was about 14 or 15, I picked up a few copies of "Mage The Hero Discovered" at the San Diego Comic-Con. It was one of the first comics that I ever read where the hero didn't wear spandex. The idea that a super hero would just wear a T-shirt completely blew my mind. The fact that the hero didn't even want to participate in the "adventure" completely sent me off the deep end. Genius!


I painted this a few years back. It's kind of a ripoff of a panel in Harvy Kurtzman's "Corps on the Imjin". Kutztman's early bush style is one of the most exciting things in the world to me. It's as if Milton Caniff dropped acid and listened to some crazy jazz LPs just before sitting down to draw.
