I'm off to a festival in France (C'est la vie)so apologies in advance both for the hurriedness of this and my non-participation in Robotech next week.
Looking forward to all your Spideys!

All the ink on this took and age to dry, hence the lateness. Thor's probably my favourite Marvel character after the Fantastic Four. I got to draw the FF so hopefully one day I'll get a crack at the Mighty one himself.

100 posts? Man; can't believe we've done 100 posts. Most of us, anyway. Unfortunately, my 100th post is actually an old post. My deadline got moved up so i'm stuck for time this week. Thankfully Jordie Bellaire did me a favour by colouring up my Thor piece from months back, so i nave something 'new' to show. I'll make up for it with next weeks Ultimate Spidey piece, i promise.
Congrats to those who've made 100!

A close second would be the recent version that Olivier Coipel served up in his great run on the book. Fantastic stuff.
PS- I wasn't going to devote as much time to this piece at all, but then noticed this morning that this week marks my 100th Micks post. Who wudda thunk it.

That doesn't really work...
Big welcome to Tomm! Like every other dull twanny who shites on, I too was steamrolled by that film what he worked on. Every frame triggered pangs of envy but also strong feelings of physical arousal. And I liked that feeling. It's an honour to be in your company. (Though after doing the drawing, the next Mick we recruit needs to be blonde. Or ginge.)

Welcome aboard Tomm! May i say i loved The Secret of Kells...? No? I can't? Well, let me instead show this piece, to show how much i liked it? Thanks. It's the scene where Kells is attacked. I loved the shift in colour-scheme, the white snow, red fire, etc. Great stuff.
Just a quick note to introduce our newest Mick-head, Cartoon Saloon and oscar-nominated director/vegetarian Tomm Moore. The man is as big a comicbook fan as any of us, so I'm sure we can expect to see some amazing interpretations of the funnybook stalwarts. See below for Tomm's first post of what we hope will be many.

Thanks for inviting me to join your blog, its an honour indeed.
I decided to pay tribute to some of our influences on The Secret of Kells , I hope I have time to do something to acknowledge the Hungarian folktales,The Thief and the Cobbler and Samarai Jack as well.....

Who is Jake Ellis you might ask? Well, the answer can be found in 'Who Is Jake Ellis?' from Image Comics. Issue 1 came out last week and it's really, really good. Written by Nathan Edmondson with gorgeous art by Tonci Zonjic.
A preview of #1 can be seen here. Go check it out.
