And finally, Italian Renato Stevanato gifted not one but five portraits which will form part of his own celebratory post at his blog, cartoonstherapy.
A huge thank you to all the artists who took the time to contribute to today’s Birthday celebration, making it our biggest portrait gallery ever. And of course a huge thank you goes out to Jack Kirby for his continuing inspiration. Long live The King!
It’s that time of year again when Messrs. Brendan Tobin and Pedro Delgaro mindblast the interweb with their gruesome gallery of swollen-headed scoundrelism, March Modok Madness. Now in it’s sixth year, M.M.M. collects the depraved scribblings of maladjusted handicrafters from across the globe (all no doubt in the employ of AIM) and pays homage to one of Kirby’s most bizarre creations the Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing. Should you have no shame and wish to contribute then M.M.M. will be accepting submissions for the rest of the month at the address below.
