Yesterday marked the One Year Anniversary of Red5 Comics opening its doors to the public. With Atomic Robo ranking in the Top 300 list, a strong and growing following for Neozoic, and a lot of other great stuff going on, we are all really happy. Thanks red5 for seeing the potential in Atomic Robo!
Geeks of Doom laid a very awesome review on us that I think partially speaks to the reasons we are still here. It was especially nice to finally see someone give Jeff Powell credit for his outstanding lettering.
I updated the galleries the other day. Got rid of a good amount of old work and uploaded quite a bit of new stuff. Including the cover to Atomic Robo Vol.2 #1. Or Robo 2.1 if you prefer.

I also uploaded the entire FCBD 2008 story to the Sequential Gallery. But since Word Press uses a really SHITY system for organizing images they are scattered all over the place. Free Atomic Robo T-shirt for the first person to work out the proper page order though!
This one is a new favorite of my. I just did it for All-Star Comics, who is doing an art auction to raise money for the American Cancer Society. I always said I wanted to give something back to the ACS, and I’m glad that won’t involve giving them another testicle now. You can see some of the donated work HERE.
I like everything about the slight redesign on Robo, except the arms. In trying to keep his armor thick looking I’ve developed a giant swollen elbow where the upper and lower arm overlaps. That also seems to make me want to draw the upper arm with a curve resembling muscles. We’ll have to stop that now. I do like the smaller head and thinner legs a lot though –I think it helps add to the idea that he is a short, walking tank.
Okay, I’ve got an amphibious landing to illustrate. See you guys later.
