It’s a-me! Hey thanks for posting one of favourite Noonan scenes (and also not calling me out on looking at my Tumblr tags…)
You are most welcome! And that also goes out to all the Melody/River fans out there who have gotten in touch the past few days, you’re all very sweet. I know it’s only 1 page but hopefully that will tie you over until the next time we see her (which I don’t know when will be but someday…)
I think out of all the Marvel books (was never a DC fan to be honest) - Generation X is the one that still has a warm place in my heart and it’s for that reason alone I’d love to draw those characters. Chris Bachalo drew the first few arcs and came out with the designs and, man, what an artist, I spent hours pouring over his drawings and layouts, loving this “Vertigo” style on a brand populated by the Kubert brothers style.
I think if that book had any failings is that they spent more time trying to save the world and less time at the mall and believe me if I were in charge there would be more sitting around eating pizza than super-heroics, buddy!
Also believe it or not but Marvel put out a “Underground Special” by Jim Mahfood which in the late 90’s which BLEW MY MIND and is what led me to finding the Clerks comics he drew at Oni and then Oni Press itself and the golden era of books they put out in the early 00’s. So yeah thanks Marvel for getting me into indie comics?!?! WUBBA LUBBA DUB DUBS.
But! I’ll be honest my dream “work for hire” job at the moment would be to do some work on KaBoom’s Cartoon Network and Frederator range. Adventure Time, Bee & Puppycat, Regular Show, Steven Universe are all totally amaaaazing but it seems that every other cartoonist in the world is also trying to get through that particular door. Maybe one day…
You’re very welcome! It’s just Amy and Eleven for the next few strips but you never know, we might see River again :)
