No need for the ransom...

...I'm home!!

Actually I've been home since the 14th and this is just the real first day I've had long enough to breath and blog something. So there's no need to put together a ransom to pay the kidnappers. I know it's an old joke, but I've always kinda like it....

What I'm referring to up above is the trip to Japan and China I took to check out the studio that is working on the animation for "Stan Lee presents: The Condor". It was a long ten days, but I think ultimately helpful. It's always good to meet eye to eye and be able to point to things on a screen when discussing things - with other artists especially.
The trip was great, but ten days away from home and all alone in a foreign country - lost in translation - is tooooo long. I'll probably go into more detail later.


And ever since I've been back things have been running at full tilt. We're quickly approaching our final deadlines for The Condor. I also had a lot of interviews to do for on-line magazines concerning the release of The Ultimate Avengers Direct-to-DVD. You can use the link to pick-up your copy from Amazon or go to Costco or anywhere else. I haven't been able to find many of the interviews anywhere, but let me know if you have.
I'm also putting together some artwork for a Sketchbook to sell at this year's San Diego ComicCon - it'll also be available later from my web-site. I'm going to feature a lot of art that not too many have seen before. Hopefully I'll get that together in time....
...And on top of all this I had Jury Duty yesterday.

One more thing before I forget...a new X-Men: Evoltuion web-site just started that any of the fans should check out. It's put together bt the great guys over at Toonzone and it's pretty damn good. if you want to see it go to X-Men:Evolution at Marvel Age

Oh so you werent kidnapped? And i was ready to takedown badguys to find out where you were hiddent at...oh well *drops boomrangs, dartguns, bo staff.*

Has the x-men evolution serie ended after the apocalypse chapter? I havent heard any news on recent episodes or anything on the serie in general after that chapter. Man that was a fresh serie, everything was great, specially that mysterious hair animation technique im still trying to figure out. Yet i hope everything goes well on your side.

I appreciate your willingness and readyness to save me...

Yes, X-M:E has ended and will never see a season 5. It seemed premature, but it happened. It wasn't that Kids WB cancelled it, but Marvel didn't want to continue to pay for it.
