The other day I took some photos of a dump truck doing what dump trucks do. What? It didn’t make you think of the Thong Song? -rico.
Most of my life I’ve wanted to do the badges (or program cover) for HEROES CON. This year I was lucky enough to get the privilege. Throw in the fact that I got to play with Mike Mignola’s universe again and it’s a very cool little belt notch. Thanks so much to Shelton Drum and Rico Renzi for asking.
Of course there are different badges for different types of attendees, but I’m told that the only folks assured of a badge are the advance ticket holders. So I suggest that you go buy your advance passes here:
Hope to see you there….

I was just alerted by Mr Casey Jones that Ronnie Del Carmen has a Tumblr! I love him so much! -rico.
Illyana Rasputin, Magik My take on her. The Demon Bear Saga, illustrated by the great Bill Sienkiewicz, was my first intro to her and the New Mutants team. Fondly remembered and I still have to stop from buying issues of this run each time I find it. CBR noted this run as Comics You should Own. I wholeheartedly agree.
I stopped following the NM after Bill left the series and really stayed away after Illyana went missing. Also been on this kick of visualizing superhero costumes without the spandex or capes. She’s a teen trying to have a normal life. Except she can mess you up by bringing you to a corner of hell or vice versa. Pen, pencil, watercolor on ye olde sketchbook that should really have been filled up a month ago.
I have 2 copies of this beautiful object and each is unique. The book pictured below has a different color scheme than either of mine. Must find one! -rico.

NON - the anthology that took the best of what made Françoise Mouly and Art Spiegelman’s RAW a classic and combined it with a clear sense of where the future of comics lay.
Take a look at the beautiful anthology, NON #5.
