Happy Birthday Micks!/Wolverine v Deadpool

Happy first birthday to the Eclectic Micks blog! Today marks one year since our first official post, and dispite overwhelming odds(our combined laziness and indifference), the blog lumbers on like a mildly-narcoleptic behemoth. Huzzah!

This bad-boy is a tad unfinished as i just couldn't free up the time to work on it any more, but I'll stick the completed pencils up on the Moonblog whenever I get 'em done. Number 2 in my 'Marvel types kill Deadpool' series, this one features everybody's favourite 5-foot-furball, Wolverine.

Happy birthday Micks blog!

Wow. A whole year. Who'da thunk we'd last this long?

Craig Collins said...

Congratulation on a year's run guys! Long may it continue. Very much enjoyed keeping an eye on your work since I shuffled over here from Scotch Corner.

Happy Birfday Mr. Electic Mick, Happy Birfday to you!

And congrats the Irish Blog nominations!!!

Managed to spell 'Eclectic' wrong. I was just so excited about it being your birthday.

Moondog said...

Oh yeah, forgot about those. None of that nice-just-to-be-nominated malarky, we want 'em all!

Denis said...

Sweet! Happy first! I've been following since some time before Christmas. Can't remember how I stumbled upon this wondrous font of awesomeness, but I'm happy I did, not just because you guys are Irish, but one is even from Cork! Rockin'!

Loved the Rocketeer piece Moondog did back at the start of February. Awesome stuff.

Up the rebels!

Happy Birthday Micks!! Next time you are all together I'll make a cake in honour of this wonderful day. Keep up the great work.

Declan Shalvey said...

Oh by the way, great drawing Moondog; really hope you finish it someday. Think it'll look great.

And god bless us. Everyone.

Well done lads, Great blog, some amazing pictures you guys have posted over the year, inspiring us blatantly steal your idea, good luck for another year.
Love your take on Deadpool Moondog

Moondog said...

Cheers for all the birthday wishes! We're kind've shocked ourselves that we've managed to keep this train-wreck going at such a surprisingly-decent level of quality.
Here's to the next year.

Big announcement upcoming on the blog this week too...

Stephen Thompson said...

I hate to be a nit-picker... (well that's a complete lie I love to be a nit-picker) but the blog started on February 23rd last year not the 22nd. And that was just Will jumping the gun, the first real post was March 2nd. Nice picture though, I too would like to see it inked and markered up.

Moondog said...

My dear Tompson, today is my 52nd weekly post, and as I had the first official post, ergo visa vi(and concordantly) the blog has now officially beeen running for 52 weeks, or, one of your Earth years.

Will Sliney said...

Jumped the gun? Dont you mean got us started?

Stephen Thompson said...

March 2nd 2009 to February 22nd 2010 is 358 days not 365. Ergo not a year.

Moondog said...

This week(all of it) ends the first year. next week, will be the 53rd week, or to put it another way, the first week of year two.
I possibly should have said this WEEK marks the blog's 1 year birthday, I'll give you that. If you want to, next week in your post you can describe it as the blog's true birthday.

Stephen Thompson said...

Pff, birthday week. A birthday is one specific day and Eclectic Mick's true birthday will be Dec's post next Tuesday. That's just science.

Will Sliney said...

Science Damn you time child. Im with Mooney. The blog was born on Feb 23rd In kasaoka Japan, so accounting for time differences today is its birthday

Gio said...

happy birthday-love this blog-many more to come hopefully!!

Moondog said...

Will all this in-fighting tear the Micks blog apart?
Tune in next week to find out!
Same Mick-time,same Mick-channel

nickrunge said...

Cheers fellas!

Thanks man, 'preciate it.

Wish my pencils were as 'rough' as this. Lovely stuff - I like it when there's a mini-story going on in these images. Noice!
