OOSA Digest

Toby Cypress offered $100 Kirby character commissions yesterday to celebrate Jack Kirby’s birthday. I hope you signed up for one. If not, maybe you can catch Toby at SPX in a few weeks and get something.

Alexis Ziritt was featured on’s Kirby tribute for this Kirby-inspired Mechano Turbo print (which you can buy HERE.)

Paul Maybury has been hard at work on his new book, Valhalla Mad, and hasn’t been posting much, so here’s a MODOK commission he drew a couple of years ago to stay with the Kirby clelebration theme.

Logan Faerber did a Flash Gordon commission for some lucky person.

Ming Doyle reached 10,000 followers on Tumblr and drew an awesome lady to celebrate.

Nathan Fox did the cover artwork for a new book called The Camelot Kids by Ben Zackheim available on amazon

Greg Ruth did the cover for Where the Train Turns on The cover art is all ink and graphite with no Photoshop trickery, btw. Amazing! Read about the process HERE.

Andrew MacLean’s debut graphic novel, ApocalyptiGirl, from Dark Horse was announced this week. Check out some preview pages HERE

Chris Visions did some illustrations for MLS Insider for an article on soccer youth development. 

Liz Suburbia is wrapping up Cyanide Milkshake #6 just in time for SPX in a few weeks. I’ll have some copies at the OOSA booth if you want one. You all are going to be there, right?

Stay tuned, folks. There’s going to be a lot happening in the next few weeks!

By Andy Khouri

Andrew MacLean is an illustrator and comics artist we’ve been admiring for a long time. Part of the uniformly excellent stylists at Brand New Nostalgia, MacLean has appeared in our Best Art Ever (This Week) feature and earned couple of solo spotlights as well for his great work, which is an uncanny blend of a kind of simple, airy animation style with detailed manga, woodblock art, sci-fi Eurocomics and old fashioned American adventure comics. In storytelling, MacLean’s biggest claim to fame has been the self-published Head Lopper — which is, blissfully, precisely what it sounds like, a swords-and-scorcery type comic that affords MacLean to show off his talent for action and humor. Additionally, his work is featured in Brand New Nostalgia and Out Of Step Arts’ kaBOOMbox anthology, a particularly cool-looking collection funded with Kickstarter that will be available at conventions later this year and online soon.

But MacLean’s going to make a much bigger splash in the comics scene in 2015, when Dark Horse releases his debut graphic novel ApocalyptiGirl: An Aria For End Times. The 96-page book features story, art, color and lettering by MacLean, who, based on the preview pages provided exclusively to ComicsAlliance, has leveled up in a big way since beginning work on Head Lopper.

Set in a ruined city at the end of the world, ApocalyptiGirl is the story of a woman called Aria (and her cat Jelly Beans) who fights for survival as she tries to find the ancient power that could be her salvation. Dark Horse describes the project as “an action-packed exploration of the extremes of humanity and our desire for a home in a world beyond repair,” some of which is definitely reflected in these pages. MacLean’s gift for environments is in full effect, transporting you to an overgrown wasteland that you can tell at a glance was once a civilization.

You can see a number of influences or familiar images built into this work: the ancient robot repair recalls Miyazaki’Laputa: Castle in the Sky; the crisp layouts and figures recall Mike Mignola and Guy Davis; and the plucky hero talking to herself (or to Jelly Beans) reminds one a bit of Y: The Last Man; but it’s all synthesized in MacLean’s own tantalizing way. We’re definitely looking forward to this.


ApocalyptiGirl actually spawned from this OOSA print Andrew did with Toby Cypress a few years ago. It’s great to see Andrew take it from a concept to a fully realized book. Can’t wait to see it!

Neil’s right. That early version of Aria I did as a jam with Toby Cypress was based on Amy Winehouse and the cats were just silliness, and became the first seed of ApocalyptiGirl.  -A

All-New Ultimates #7 comes out today! I wrote it, Giannis Milonogiannis drew it, Jordie Bellaire colored it and David Nakayama did the cover. It’s a thing of beauty.

Villains: Vermin (created by J.M. DeMatteis & Mike Zeck) and Agent Crock (created by Ann Nocenti & Keith Giffen). Research was a blast.

My boy Giannis drawing All-New Ultimates, with Jordie coloring, this will look great.  -A

  • Question: Hey Andrew! My friend got a commission from you at HeroesCon and it turned out beautifully. I was wondering if you know what you'll be charging for them at SPX in a couple weeks? I'm thinking about getting one if my budget permits it. - shutuptres
  • Answer:

    Thanks man.

    At SPX I’ll be doing commissions for $40.


From the desk 8/26I’ve wanted to do a scene of someone losing their shit and trashing their own things for awhile.
