will be publishing COLOSSUS in March. Thats right will be publishing COLOSSUS in march. It will be available through Amazon. Barnes&Noble and your local comic book store all over the country. Thats right baby!!!! ALL OVER THE COUNTRY.

Hell I was as surprised as you when my good buddy Scott Morse called me and told me his pals at are interested in COLOSSUS. So I met with these great guys- Jim and Eric, and BOOM!!!! will be publishing my comic COLOSSUS.

Is that not cool or not!

The book will be exactly the same- BUT BETTER- it will have better paper and perhaps for the published COLOSSUS a new cover. Im still thinking about it.

So thats it. Keep on the look out cause Ive hit the main stream in mighty morphin comic quality atomic powered publishing... that would be baby!!!

heres a little something- a tease for the up coming short story I'll be doing in AFTERWORKS 2

Luxo jr---- maybe not the world but damn close huh. I am excited about doing a short story it will be fun. I haven't done anything except that opening image so now its all research research research.

Rob a----- Ninja do rock-- hell I even played one way back when I played D&D. This will be my tribute to the 'silent interlude' issue of GI Joe.

Well hello there MANDREWS, I was just searching for some ideas on poster art when I happened on to your Blog. Although THIS JUST IN!!!! isn’t quite what I was looking for, it was for more information on poster art. You’ve still got a great Blog here. You are most welcomed to visit my site at poster art

Nice work Mandrews, that is exciting news even if I already bought the book at SDCC. You and Luxo are correct in thinking that publishing through Image is a portal to world domination. If Napoleon or Mussolini had Image comics back in the day, it would be a different world... a different world indeed.

Look foreward to your Afterworks 2 story.

Congrats Mark! Your work ethic is astounding, but that seems nothing new for all the talent at Pixar.

I finally managed to pick up the first Colossus a few months back at a local comic shop and enjoyed it immensely. The pin-ups are a blast, especially Mignola's. Looking forward to getting a copy of the new version of the book.

I also enjoyed seeing your work on The Incredibles DVD. I can see why Brad brings your energy and talents to each project. We've linked our Luxo readers over here as well. So keep blogging if you have the time!

Bob Camp sicced me on your site. Thanks for the compliments. Your work blows me away in every way. I'll pass a link on to The Golden One, and he will definitely look, but he is uncommonly uncommunicative. Love the FA-18 stuff. Planes in high-g maneuvers are a bitch to draw. I found the Keith Ferris book to be incredibly enlightening.

Larry Hama ----Roger that Larry! Say hey to Camp I love that guy. i've heard Golden is a tiny itsy lil bit of a recluse but I can dream! Hey I never would have guessed You'd pop in on my blog. what an awesome treat. Thanks for the compliments I love your work-how many times can I say it. So here's to F-18's in high G manuevers!!!! Hoo Wha!!!!

I'll send you a copy of my TPD Colossus.Its being published by image. Its not fighter jets but you might like it. Email Mandrews @
