Another from Monkeybrain, this of a title unread as of yet. Need to correct that, stat.
I’d ask if you saw what we did there, but of course you did.
Copernicus Jones: Robot Detective #4
Writer: Matt D. Wilson
Artist: Kevin Warren
Letterer: Dylan Todd
While a funeral takes place on the other side of town, Copernicus and his by-necessity compatriot, a robot crime boss who now lives in the body of one of his human enforcers, pay a house call.
We’re settling back into our regular, tried and true format this week, as I’m joined by the artist of Copernicus Jones: Robot Detective, Kevin Warren! This one’s a long time coming, because after t…
Q:How much have you earned from Copernicus since it's been with Monkeybrain?
Wait does that make me Titas or Darren?
Q:What's been the biggest lesson you've learned as you've worked on COPERNICUS JONES?
I have actually learned quite a bit while working on Copernicus Jones, but the biggest lesson I have learned is to just keep going. Making comics is hard work, and it can be emotionally and physically draining at times. There are days where your tools are fighting you, or time is working against you, or you just do not want to work that day. Those times are frustrating, but having the fortitude to work through that frustration makes the finished result that much better.
I think Teddy Roosevelt said it best: “Nothing in the world is worth having or worth doing unless it means effort, pain, and difficulty.”
Contents Under Pressure
I rarely use this to just blog. I’m going to just blog now, so you can all just ignore this if it’s not to your liking.
Warning. Contents under pressure.
I don’t usually reblog things that aren’t concerning my art or by my collaborators, BUT I stand behind this 1000%.
Q:Are there any artists that are doing new things with the comic book medium that you feel need more attention? If so, who, and which books?
Oh, you mean Kevin Warren, artist of Copernicus Jones: Robot Detective. (But really, he’s doing awesome work.)
As for others, I really love everything Colleen Coover (Bandette) does. She gets recognition in the form of awards, but not enough in the popular sphere.
Nick Pitarra is doing consistently amazing, mind-bending stuff on The Manhattan Project. Ryan Browne (God Hates Astronauts) is great and weird. Derek Charm (Trip Fantastic). Buster Moody (Task Force Rad Squad). Ming Doyle is certainly making a name for herself, but I feel like she should be a superstar. She’s got a style that’s so identifiable.
There are so many more, but that’s a good start.
Awww… gosh. *Looks at the ground and kicks some dirt sheepishly*
