The House of C 024: Dealing with Arseholes The House of C 21 MAR 2012

It’s a shitty job, and you’ll probably end up the butt of all your friends’ jokes, but hey, work is work – and besides, someone has to do it.

To be honest, I was a bit torn whether to go with asshole or arsehole on this one. In the end I stuck with the classier of the two!

And Doris. The perfect doctor’s secretary name in my opinion. All of which reminds me of a joke I stumbled across on Reddit this week:

A guy walked into the doctor’s office complaining about pain in his genital region. The doctor asked him to remove his pants and was amazed to find this man had 5 penises, all in working order! “My goodness,” exclaimed the doctor. “How on earth does a condom fit over that mess?”

“Like a glove doctor, like a glove.”

Greg Land: Jenna Jameson’s Shadow Hunter #1 Cover (2008) Comic Book Art | Comic Books 28 JAN 2012

In 2008 Virgin Comics (before the name change to Liquid Comics) pushed out the four issue mini-series Jenna Jameson’s Shadow Hunter as part of their Voices imprint, basically designed to let celebrities dream up their own comic book story lines. Plotted in conjunction with Jenna Jameson herself, Christina Z handled the typewriter on this particular outing, backed up with interior art from Makesh Singh.

As expected, issue 1 shipped with numerous variant edition covers, one of them being this particular piece of art from controversial comic book artist, Greg Land, best known for his work on X-Men, Birds of Prey and Fantastic Four… and of course for his unapologetic heavy use of nude photo references and models.

Still, this one turned out pretty well.

Bart Sears and Mark Pennington: Rogue Trooper #15 Cover (1987) Comic Book Art | Comic Books 14 JAN 2012

Although a staple in the comic book market back home in Britain, 2000 AD has always traditionally struggled to get a proper foothold or even liking in the American comic book market, though it certainly hasn’t been for the lack of trying. In the 1980’s Quality Comics decided to produce a full colour reprint and repackaging of some classic 2000 AD Rogue Trooper stories for a wider market, ending up with a 37 issue run on their hands and more importantly, introducing some great cover art from the now comic book veteran, Bart Sears.

And as you can see for yourself, picking Sears (with a little help from inker Mark Pennington) to do the classic lone soldier depiction was certainly an inspired choice!

Tim Bradstreet: Jennifer Blood #2 Cover (2011) Comic Books 12 NOV 2011

Master of black humor, action comedy comics, writer Garth Ennis is back at it, unleashing in conjunction with Dynamite Entertainment and artist Adriano Batista, Jennifer Blood, the tongue in cheek, dark and bloody action comedy that introduces us to a suburban housewife who runs the house and looks after the kids during the day, before putting them to bed and hitting the streets at night, fully armed and kitted out, weapons locked and loaded, in her personal brutal vendetta against the local mobsters.

Of course, in true Dynamite Entertainment fashion, the books all ship with a gamut of multiple covers, but this particular fully painted cover by Tim Bradstreet for issue 2 is enough to grab you by the balls and blow you away.

Seriously.
