Angel and Spike never looked so Jazzy

Dynamic Forces, who often does exclusive variant editions of other publisher's big issues with new art, is doing the same for a couple of our books right now. They're doing exclusive editions of ANGEL: AFTER THE FALL #11 and SPIKE: AFTER THE FALL #3. And what's really notable about these is that the covers for the two issues have been drawn by the inimitable John Romita. That's John Romita Senior, too, not his equally talented progeny. You know, the guy who first gave life to Mary Jane Watson in Spider-Man #41, the guy who drew one of my all-time favorite covers ever (Spidey #39), the '60s Marvel Bullpen stalwart who Stan nicknamed "Jazzy." I'm a little excited about this, as you can see, and I love his take on both characters.

In other news, I did another segment on radio station WNJC 1360 AM in Philadelphia. The show's host Sohaib Anwan, was formerly one-half of a due who did a show called "To Be continued." That show's been discontnued, and Sohaib--who's a great, informed guy and a good conversationalist/interviewer, has launced a new show called
Fictional Frontiers. It airs Sundays on that station at 11 AM EST. The full site will be up with podcasts of all the shows very soon. I'm likely going to be a monthly pop-culture correspondent on the show--today, we debated whether PULP FICTION or THE LORD OF THE RINGS deserved the top spot on Entertainment Weekly's "100 New Classic Films" list, talked about the new HULK movie, ran down some new IDW projects and even had a caller talk Transformers with us, too.

The next episode I'll be on will be the July 19th show, talking about various things we'll be announcing at Comic-Con a week later.

When will Angel and Spike have sex in the comics? They are so good together, I wish to see them in bed together, all naked, doing nasty things to each other. A little violance would be great, too.

Spider does have a point in some Spangel love (as does the comic version Spider in eluding to it *one of main reasons she likes her*). But seeing them do the nasty is asking too much. Though it can't be denied that we are owed some vamp lovin' after all that slayer action.

Um, it seems that we're getting a bit off-topic here...

Mirage said...

But, I was on topic! *whine* I mentioned how I especially liked the vamp Spike one and hoped to see the one of Angel in the comic soon (for real -no magic cloak). Look, it's there in my...

*blink* Well, I guess my method of copy/paste from word doesn't work unless I select all the text (even the one under the addicting slashy talk) and have fully woken up. Oh, well, great job! *smiles brightly*

those look great! although i have to say, i think the spike drawings capture james better than the angel ones capture david. which is a shame because david is the more attractive of the two. :)

(i also agree with wanting some dirty spangel loving.)

Woot! Not only does Romita Sr. still got it, he's gotten MORE of it! NICE ART!

If there's any continuation to Angel After the Fall, I think he'd be the right guy for it.

His art is better than great, its spectacular. :D

I wonder if he can maintain that level of art throughout the interiors. :D
