With the end of the New York Comic-Con, convention season has once again come to a close, and that means the end of another round of entries in my ongoing sketchbook. Schlepping this thing around the country is definitely one of the most fun things about conventions for me, even if my theme isn't quite as good as Gavin from 4thLetter, who has artists drawing "The Macho Man" Randy Savage with var
Meredith Gran will be joined by a quartet of killer cover artists next month as the new Adventure Time spinoff comic from Boom! Studios, Marceline and the Scream Queens, rocks on across the Land of Ooo and into comic shops. Today The Boom!Pen let loose cover art from June's Marceline and the Scream Queens #2, featuring the wor
