Age of Reptiles news

I'd like to let all five of you know that Age of Reptiles- Baby Turtles, an eight-page short story, will be published in an issue of Dark Horse Presents in 2014.

More news as the publication date draws near:)

Indy thinks he's made it


Main Title Sequence of the Day- Chico and The Man


A cool, cool song by Jose Feliciano.

EDIT: Here's the actual main title sequence:


Hard Boiled shootout


This is one of the coolest shootouts I've ever seen.

Chow yun Fat is so cool!

NOT FOR KIDS.

REPEAT, NOT FOR KIDS.

Age of Reptiles- The Body page 5





I thought it might be cool for all five of you to see my stupid art in both color and line form. 

This story was presented in it's entirety in Dark Horse Presents 5, but who cares?

I've grown strangely attentive to placing dinosaur footprints in my stories these days. 





Yes, the Rancor is my favorite Star Wars monster



And by Star Wars I mean Star Wars (1977), Empire Strikes Back (1980), and Return of the Jedi (1982)

Pops




Just re-posting this pic of my Dad from the John Williams concert this past summer. He went through heart surgery last month and I'm glad he's okay:)

My good friend Pete Von Sholly says that my dad looks like famous comic book artist Jack Kirby.

Is he right?



Glad you're well, Pop:)

Main Title Sequence of the Day- Hawaii Five O!



I used to love this show as a kid and this was one of the coolest themes ever. No, I don't watch the new show.

"ohh-ohh-ohh! Solo!"


It's goooooooooooood!



USC wins a barn-burner Saturday Night!

Delgado Double Feature- Invasion of the Body Snatchers

Here's the trailer for the 1950's version:


As well as the very underrated remake in 1978:





Both are really creepy, and it's fun to contrast 1950's small town America paranoia to 1970's big city isolationism and existentialism.

Main Title Sequence of the Day- Welcome Back Kotter






One of my favorite themes from my childhood in the 1970's. I'm gonna post one every day this week.

Disneydelgadodinopalooza!



Cody Lake, one of the five followers of this intrepid blog, wove all my thoughts of mouse/delgado/dino mediocrity into one image and sent it to me, and here it is above.

The guy who drew these stinks.

Hieroglyph issue 2 page I dunno




An open crypt in the rain forests in Turrialba on one of my trips to Costa Rica inspired this page:)

Hieroglyph Issue 2 pages 10 and 11



I'm thinking Subway for lunch today.

El Santo and La Libreria Mexico




When I was a little kid I thought Mexican Wrestling Movies were reeeeallllly cool, and El Santo was the coolest of the masked wrestlers who fought vampires and werewolves and aztec mummies in these movies.

Here's a pic of El Santo:



In Latin America, these movies were really popular, and since I grew up in a latino household in Los Angeles, the kid in me was quickly impressed with these films, because in a weird way they were like superheroes fighting monsters, so when I saw this after the Avengers movie came out, it made me laugh and reminisce about those times as a little kid when El Santo, Mil Mascaras and the Blue Demon fought zombies, vampires and monsters. 

The color films are nice, but the black and white films are really cool. Someone did a Mexican Avengers photoshop illustration that I thought was great, and here it is:




THIS IS AWESOME! 

I don't know who Pantera is but the others I know from comic book racks in Libreria Mexico, a latino magazine rack/bookstore where we'd go after mass as a little kid, and I thought I would share my enjoyment of these characters and this sub-genre with all five of you:) 




Here's a pretty cool fake 1950's Avengers trailer!



Libreria Mexico, today.

Ben Cooper olde school Halloween masks!







These are the kind of masks that my siblings and I wore as kids. In hindsight, they're really cool. Simple and stylized, I had no idea that they had a Luke Skywalker costume!

I think I was Spider-man once. 

Loved these babies!
