A week away

Hey there sports fans, Al here with the latest:

Well guys it looks like we are less than a week away from Stumptown Comics Fest 2011.

It means a bigger venue this year as things have moved from the Doubletree Hotel for the last three years to the Convention Center.
Check out Stumptown @
Hopefully we wont run into the same problems that happen last time when we were there 5 years ago back in ‘07. BUT without sounding like a downer Black Box Comix will be sharing a table again this year with NEOtrash Comix.
Jason and I have had a real good time working with each other behind the table up ECCC and looks like we will be having another good time this event!
It also helps that we are working together on the crossover “A Tale of Two Jo(h)nnys” at the same time. It always helps when there is a little down time between rushes at the show. Good times to be sure of.
Please check the fantastic art of Dan DePaulo and Ben Perkins for the The Brass Knuckle Rituals and Professor Ozarks Secret Medicine Redux. Both penned by Jason Z. Pott.

He’s a madman I tell you, mad!
Black Box Comix will be representing Darkslinger Comics to best of our abilities for this show. Adam of Darkslinger is taking a step back from the shows a wee bit to focus on the business side of things for his company and the potential collaborations between other small comic companies like Black Box Comix and others.
And if you make it to the show (and I hope you do) also check out Gunbaby Graphics @ as well. Tony’s work will blow your socks off with the latest painted images he has been working on as well as the Covers he has been doing for Darkslinger’s “Chronicles of Von Helsing”
For all new Darkslinger Comics things check out Darkslinger Comics @

Occasionally as an artist you have to take a break from the drawing table and the imposed deadlines (remember I said occasionally) to drawing something that is not related to your current work schedule well these are the most current
The first is the latest bus ride illustration of the Man of the Future, Johnny Vega Soaring the Spaceways. It’s too bad that I didn’t really render this one in pen and ink on bristol like I normally do but this was a fun stand alone image for him.

The other is Corpse Cop! You’ve seen it in black and white , you’ve seen it in color. Now you get to see a sample of the work in Scratchboard! Still a work in progress but fun nevertheless.

And a new sign for the show. As I realized Black Box Comix has delving into a lot of scratchboard this last couple of years with gallery work and the success of the Scratchboard Corpse Cop Special “Corpsecile” so I needed a sign that represents! And this is it. I can’t wait to see how things turn out for this show.

And that is it for the kid!
I got a meeting to get to.
