Infinity Gauntlet Tug of War 2013
I wanted to create a sketch with the following criteria:
I feel that I have met these criteria. So, I decided to share it with the world. :)
What do you think?
Update: 8 orders in the next 36 minutes to unlock the Crystal Burst Earrings. Can we do it Carol Corps?
Here’s the Pre-Order Link again. http://www.optimysticalstudios.com/pre-orders (formatting being weird, so adding the direct address)

Here’s the new Pre-Order bonus for the Carol Corps dog tags:
If we can get 17 more orders by Midnight Wednesday January 16th (MST) you will unlock a new pre-order perk.
All pre-orders of the Carol Corps dog tags will receive a pair of these awesome Captain Marvel Star Burst Earrings free (on top of all the other bonuses). These will come with silver plate earwires.
So here it is, Carol Corps! The present I promised:
Wait, what? Where are you going???
Here, lemme ‘splain:
That right there is Carol Danvers’ lucky hat, as knit for her by Grandma Rose in Captain Marvel Issue 9, which I know you are all going to have in your hot little hands…
Fun with knitting!
So… I’m not sure if this is a good idea or a bad idea and I’m *really* nervous about it, but I’m going to give it a shot.
Here’s the thing: Captain Marvel and Ghost are about as different as two books could be. Captain Marvel is about identity and heroism and what makes us rise above and give of…
I know it is a bit late… but I am ALWAYS a big supporter of your work kellysue! :D
Charles Joy (thanosrules) - ALL issues + ALL covers! (plus all the related Dark Horse Presents issues covering Issue #0)
Just make sure Phil Noto, Emma Rios and/or Dexter Soy are on for the art!
Wall of Thanos!
Can you tell which comic book character I like the most? I took some time to collect the majority of my Thanos art, posters, commissions and even some statues in one place… for this Wall… of Thanos.
This wall is what I see all day, every day - I wanted to make sure it was something awesome.
I have made some other updates to my “Marvel Room” as well, I will take a bunch of pictures and stitch them together in a little while.
Why did I rework the room?
It was all because of the latest piece of Thanos artwork I picked up at Wizard World NOLA Comic Con 2012…Here is a picture of its creator (Ellison Keomaka) and myself, with the Thanos piece at the con):
As you likely know, I collect a lot of different stuff… during my “room remodel” I also started a little Captain Marvel / Carol Danvers commission/art area:
If you haven’t already guessed, decking out this room has become a lifelong work in progress… :)
Ben Bender Captain Marvel Sketch!
This one happens to be on an Avengers Assemble Blank Variant for Issue #1. Which is kinda great, if you ask me… I just happened to have this blank variant, and then thought, “Hey, that makes sense.”
Why does it make sense?
Anyway, this is going on my wall, right next to the commission I had Jason Adams create for me…
Okay, quick shout out here for my buddy Ben Bender - I absolutely LOVE his art… Do you? Are you interested? Check out his Website and Like his Facebook site, and follow him on Twitter (official website, Facebook, Twitter)!
And, for those of you that missed it the first time, here is the Thanos commission he did for me during Wizard World Austin Comic Con 2012!

Captain Marvel #5
Recommendation: “The best one yet!”
Carol’s trip through time continues… wait until you see the end of this issue!
I thought it was only fitting to review this book Live! during the Women of Wonder Day event on Sunday, October 21st, 2012 - so I did. If you are interested, you can find that review as part of Stacks of Comics - Episode 015 - Women of Wonder Day 2012!
NOTE: The review starts at time stamp: 00:43:55 in that episode.
I really cannot say much more about this book than I already have, other than to once again recommend it very highly.
There is an artist change up this month. We are presented with Emma Rios’ fantastic art for the entire issue. It is beautiful. I cannot get over it, really.
The story itself is progressing along nicely and by the end, you kind of get an idea why we have been travelling back in time with Carol… I am definitely looking forward to the next issue, which has been teased:
“Next In Captain Marvel: The Beginning!”
So, as I said at the end of the podcast, celebrate Women of Wonder Day 2012 by reading this book!
AvX: Consequences #1
Recommendation: “Yikes, not really, unless you want some filler tie-in related to AvX and Uncanny Avengers…”
Another AvX title, another Variant Cover. Sigh. And this one isn’t even “special”. Sure, it is Cyclops, but that is a pretty generic cover for a variant. I guess they will get better from issue to issue because their incentive ratio is increasing? Let’s hope.
You may wonder why I am concentrating on a “collection” aspect of this book, instead of the content… well that is just it - I am not sure there is a lot of value to this book beyond its “collection completion” value.
The story is lack-luster and the art is… difficult to adjust to. I am used to these characters looking a specific (or nearly specific) way, and this art does not do “that look” justice. This is nothing against the artist, I respect the amount of work it takes… it is just a style that doesn’t fit with how I see the characters - thus it distracts me from the story.
That is the other thing, the story is easy to get distracted away from… as it really isn’t much of a story - yet? Hopefully. The characters seem “weird”. I understand that something horrible has happened. But still, many of them are acting oddly out of character.
I was happy to see they are tying up a lot of loose ends left at the end of AvX. It was nice to finally hear about Cable - heck, we hadn’t heard about him since X-Sanction…
Anyway, this 5-part mini-series should (hopefully) answer some questions and possibly get better as it goes along. I believe it is weekly, so at least it will be over quick, whether it gets better or not.
