Buck, buck, buck, BUCKY!

Funny thing about being on Comic Twart. I'm constantly asked to draw characters that I've not only never drawn before, but never even THOUGHT to draw before. Like Captain America's "Robin", Bucky Barnes. I like that the group forces me out of my comfort zone. Promotes growth.

It's Bucky Barnes week over on Comic Twart. I expect we'll see some goodies from the fellas, three of which are or have worked on Captain America.

Fear Agent 31 finally shipping!

Hey everyone!

So, apparently Fear Agent 31 is shipping tomorrow! Rick says it's been a year, which is hard to believe. But then, I drew Fear Agent before the entire arc of CONAN, which I just wrapped up. So, I suppose it has been a long time. As I've stated before, I really have NO idea why there was a hold up. I know we'd all wrapped it up a long time ago.

Anyway, I figured I'd repost this preview from a while back.

You can see the full color preview here.

Catwoman's revenge!

Stressed over this whole Batman/Catwoman sex scene thing? I made you an alternate ending, cause I like you like that ;-)

Let that be a lesson to you. A person who steals, might black mail you too.

BTW - I haven't read the actual comic. So, yeah, there you go.


EDIT: I didn't see this coming! The reaction to the strip has been kinda awesome, with people reposting it on Tumblr pages over and over, and even some news sites picking it up!

Check it out -
"Mike Hawthorne should be writing Catwoman"

"Catwoman Gets Fixed: The Improved 'Catwoman' #1"

Thanks, everyone! :-)

Conan #8 out today!

hey all!

Apparently Conan: Road of Kings #8 is out today! So, I'll show you my favorite page from the book. Hadn't shared it before because it was a bit of a spoiler, but seeing as they give it away on the cover I figure... what the hell?!

I think this is the one and only time I've drawn Zombies in a comic! Enjoy!


PS - See my previous preview post for this issue here.

Return of Comic Twart! Part DOS!

Hey everyone!

It's week two of Comic Twart's DC comics event, and here's my second piece. "Sisters In Ass Kickery"! Kinda poetic, aint it?

Anyway, enjoy!

Seriously, I can't think of one problem these three ladies couldn't solve ;-)


Here's the first DC event piece I did.

Return of Comic Twart!

Hey everyone,

Comic Twart's break is over!

Much like our big Marvel "What If?" event, we're doing a DC Comics theme this go'round. I'm excited to see what the fellas come up with. I have two pieces planned, of which this is the first. Who better to start with than Batman's Rogues!

You gotta love the bad guys ;-)
