Hero Initiative X-Men auction! (or who let this guy in?)

There is a great charity organization called the HERO INITIATIVE that helps comic book creators in their time of need. They started a series of projects (the first one I heard of was the Ultimate Spider-Man 100 covers project: that featured original covers by some of the best creators in comics. The best part was, fans could own these comics by bidding on them in an auction and the money would be used to help comic creators. Or in their own words:

The Hero Initiative creates a financial safety net for comic creators who may need emergency medical aid, financial support for essentials of life, and an avenue back into paying work. Since inception, the Hero Initiative has been fortunate enough to benefit over 50 creators and their families with over $500,000 worth of much-needed aid, fueled by your contributions! It's a chance for all of us to give back something to the people who have given us so much enjoyment.

When I was asked to take part in their next X-Men related 100 covers project, how could I say no? Here's the comic cover I ended up creating:

Then I saw the covers of the other artists involved (you can see them here: )
Amazing covers by some of the best artists ever in comics - Alan Davis, David Bullock, John Romita Sr., Rick Leonardi, Chris Bachalo, Michael Avon Oeming, Jerry Ordway, Phil Jimenez, John Cassaday, Fred Hembeck, Dan Brereton, Bill Sienkiewicz, George freakin' Perez!!! The list goes on and on!
Doesn't matter! Here's what does. My contribution comic is up for auction on eBay. I not only want to raise as much money for the Hero Initiative as I can, but I don't want to be the comic that sold for the lowest amount (They are currently selling for around $200 or more!)
Please help the Hero Initiative by bidding on this comic. It's for charity! Thanks in advance for supporting the Hero Initiative! (For more information visit

Happy 75th Birthday Batman!

When I was six years old, I fell in love with Batman. He was the first superhero I remember seeing and I learned how to draw just so I could draw Batman.

The first superhero I ever drew that wasn't Batman was a very similar character called "The Black Beetle." Over the years, the Black Beetle evolved into the Bedbug we know and love today, but Batman's shadow still looms large over Bedbug, his adventures and his universe.

Happy 75th Birthday Batman and many thanks to his creators, Bob Kane, Bill Finger, Jerry Robinson and all the others who gave us the greatest superhero ever, thanks for years of thrills, action and mystery, fueling our imagination and inspiring us to create heroes and worlds of our own.
