Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark

So I’m not a horror guy. Never have been, probably never will be. I mean, sure I’ve seen my fair share of horror movies. I get the tropes, I understand the adrenaline rush people get from being scared in a safe way. But it’s probably the genre I watch the least frequently, at least out …

Old PsychoAndy.com Banners

While messing around on the Internet Wayback Machine, I was able to find a bunch of the old header banners for PsychoAndy.com Back in 2006, when you’d load the page, a different random one of these banners would adorn the top of the website. I’d honestly forgotten that the site did this over a decade …

Updates: June 2019

I’ve added some new work to the Illustrations Page, as well as a whole new “Retro Design” Page, where I showcase some of my late 80s/early 90s-inspired graphic design work. You know, the kind of thing you might have gotten on a Trapper Keeper.

Beach Head-in-Progress

Thanks to the highly-entertaining show, Knowing is Half the Podcast, I’ve come to have a brand-new appreciation for the GI Joe: A Real American Hero cartoons of the 1980s. I watched the show as a kid, but the hosts of the podcast bring a wholly different passion to the series. One of my favorite characters …

Zangief vs TMNT

Back in the days of America Online chatrooms, role-playing games were kind of a big thing. Not proper RPG systems like Dungeons & Dragons, but more freeform-style playing. And, for whatever reason, this morning I had been thinking about one time, when my friend Dané invited me to join his Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game …

Hawk & Croc’s 15th.

(From the end of New Hawk & Croc Chapter 3. Art by me, written by Brandon A. Mayo.) It was on this day in 2003 that the first strip of Hawk & Croc went live. My co-creator, Brandon A. Mayo, and I may have been a bit dormant in the last year-and-a-half, but real life …

Played a Fool

I was listening to Thanks For Supporting Random: Mega Ran Mix Tape vol 2 (available at MegaRan.com) this morning, when his track “Played a Fool” came on. Ran raps about a day when he was short on dough, and decided to sell his copy of Spider-Man (1990) #1 (pictured above) to the local comic shop. …

Black Panther mini review

I’m not saying that Black Panther is the absolute best origin story in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but it has certainly raised the bar. It’s a movie with a budget and a number of extras that couldn’t have happened during “Phase One,” so a direct comparison isn’t exactly fair. But, it was a hell of …

Test

Is this thing on? Hopefully, if all goes according to plan, I can now update the blog from my phone, which (hopefully) means more frequent updates. Edit: Hey, it worked. The future is a neat place to be.

Over at HouseToAstonish.com — One of my favorite comics podcasts — they have their annual nominations for their awards show, the “Homies,” celebrating the best in comics in a particular year. Here’s what I nominated for 2016: ———————- BEST NEW SERIES (any comic whose first issue was published in 2016) Action Comics (DC) It’s hard …
