Almost a year? Really?

Jeepers, there's just no excuse for that. Anyway, I'm hoping to change this up into more of a showcase for my cartooning and drawing and the like, most of which is likely to still be comics-related. Sometimes it might fall under the bigger umbrella of pop-culture stuff, but it still seems to come back to comics somehow. I had another blog on the go for awhile that sort of eclipsed this one, but then they both fell on the back burner. If you're a fan of old-timey horror movies, the likes of which you'd usually find in sun-faded VHS cases at your local corner store, this one's for you. I called it Dell Grodak's House of Haunts, and it was a place for me to make and display some old horror movie poster art of my own design. Check it out at Hopefully, one day soon, I'll collapse that blog and this one into some kind of catch-all affair where I basically just do whatever the hell I want. It'll be anarchy! Watch this space for details, it's already in the works.

Back to the drawing co-worker and comic buddy Rachelle Goguen (check her blog at and I cooked up an idea awhile back, as a direct response to the absolutely ridiculous proliferation of Marvel variant covers featuring recreations of classic covers but with zombies, skrulls, apes, and the like. We wondered how stupid this whole phenomenon was likely to get before fanboys stopped buying, and came up with the following. I should mention that we got beaten to the punch with one of these ideas by mere days on Chris Sims' Invincible Super-Blog, but that his trumps mine also by inclusion of a bindle. Anyway, here's what we came up with...

More drawings to come soon, I promise!
