Kirby Krackle Strike Again

Nerdcore band Kirby Krackle (who I interviewed at Broken Frontier last year) have just released the first single from their upcoming second album, E For Everyone. The duo, consisting of Kyle Stevens and Jim Demonakos, specialise in writing songs that make fanboys and girls tap their toes and smile wryly at all the witty references. Their first album gained many fans in the comics community, and surely more will follow. The single, On and On centres on a day in the life of Wolverine and you can here it at their site right now.

I also suggest checking out the lyrics to On and On and the songs from their debut album. E For Everyone will be released via their site on March 9 and is able to be pre-ordered now. Below is the groovy cover art from comics artist Jim Mahfood, with colours by Justin Stewart. Yes, that’s a gree lantern generated guitar. Awesome.

Green Gleason

Patrick Gleason is one of my favourite artists and I was fortunate enough to meet him at my first Comic-Con 2 years ago. A busy guy, but very humble – and also friends with one of my other fave artists, Doug Mahnke. I read last week’s Green Lantern Corps #45 on the train journey home this week and thought I’d share a few pages from Gleason’s handiwork. He’s always had a soft, rounded and fluid approach to his pencils and that’s why he’s been doing such dazzling works with the Green Lantern titles for the last few years. His pencils fit in so well with all the swirling light constructs and weird alien races. On to the pretty pictures then.
