NightCrawler and Moonboy

Another evening of margaritas with BD, this time joined by Tom from Amazing Toys gives us this drawing.

Nightcrawler was more suggested as a drawing (something bound to habit if 'a drawing from the evening' theme continues, but kind of kills spontaneity) rather than a subject that came up, so I added Moonboy, whose fine coiffedness did come up in the ramblings of the night.

Nightcrawler created by Len Wein and Dave Cockrum in 1975

Moonboy created by Jack Kirby in 1978

Living in the Land of the Lost

Another margarita laden meeting (this time mango flavoured) with BD resulted in another-drawing-that-normally-wouldn’t-happen (the first being the Star Wars thing).

Isn’t CNN the most nauseating thing on TV?

The gist of this ‘comic’ is What Happens During the Commercial Breaks.

The last panel is Land of the Lost’s Cha-ka saving us all, after first tearing out Wolf Blitzer’s femoral artery, Cha-ka provides *the* “last word in Sunday talk”.

[Cha-ka has always been keen on POOF (Pursuing Opportunities Outside the Firm)]

Malekith (the Accursed)

Reeling in the years and rereading some of the classic Thor comics from the mid 80s spawned this…

Malekith (the Accursed)

Created by Walt Simonson 1984

Quality comics. Looking around the ‘nets I see this character really hasn’t been used too much. Some potential there…
