Thomas Perkins, animator, comic creator and just plain creative guy, has posted a number of new pieces over the past few months. While his Marvel work is what originally caught my eye, cool is cool and the rest of his work deserves as much attention as possible.
Check out his first entry in the Official Handbook of The Marvel Universe Reduxe collection, Black Bolt. Also, Thomas visits the DC Universe with OMAC and Atomic Skull.
Fortunately Thomas is also continuing with his own work through MonkeyBrain Comics. Check out the latest, AWESOME ADVENTURES, by Perkins and Chris Roberson.
Check out more of Thomas Perkins’ work at his blog, his deviant art page and his iPhone App!

The Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe REDUXE blog is a new twist on a Marvel classic. I am a huge fan of the OHOTMU from back in the day and I also love concept art and redesigns. This blog has a little bit of everything.

The Official Handbook to the Marvel Universe REDUXE Edition invites a select group of disparate cartoonists and artist to come together in order to recreate every single character entry in the original Official Handbook to the Marvel Universe (Deluxe Edition) in their own inimitable style.
There are dozens of entries so far. Click after the jump to see just a sampling. Continue Reading

Obviously, I would recommend everyone watch this great series.
It manages to take classic and modern epics from the comics and streamline, enhance and pay homage to them.

Legendary Pictures and Warner Brothers have released two trailers for next years Man of Steel movie. The visuals are the same for both trailers, but one has Kevin Costner (Pa Kent) doing the voice-over and the other has Russell Crowe (Jor-El). It is an interesting approach. The trailers are pretty good and, I think , offer a unique approach to the character.
