If you've been reading ComicsAlliance for a while, you may already know that for the past few years, I've been working on filling up a sketchbook themed around Jack Kirby, but after three years and over fifty sketches, I thought it was finally time to retire it and move on to something else. That's why this year, I started up a new sketchbook themed around another influential comics creator: ShotaroIshinomori, the original creator of Kamen Rider and the Super Sentai series that have spun off to 40 years of tokusatsu shows by other creators.

Today, in honor of Kirby's 96th birthday, I'm putting all the sketches in one place to show some of the best artists working in comics celebrating Kirby's lasting legacy as a creator!

In my interview with him at New York Comic Con last year, Brandon (Viking, NYC Mech) pitched Offset as a comics "lab" whose mission is "to discard logistical motivation" of the existing comics apparatus -- "pages are
This weekend at New York Comic-Con, writer Ivan Brandon (Viking, 24Seven) announced a new publishing venture called Offset Comics that was met with a great deal of excitement, largely (for me, anyway) because of the amazing promo art for Deathface. Drawn by Black Metal's Chuck BB, the promo promised an 80s action movie feel combined with a skull-styled luchador mask, which is just abou
Teased as far back as Comic-Con weekend in July, Offset Comics is an enigmatic new project devised by Ivan Brandon (writer, Viking, Men of War; editor 24Seven) that's set to launch "soon." Some very handsome illustrations by talented co-conspirators Daniel Krall, Chuck BB and Eric Canete have been rel
