Just wanted to show off some of Danimation's incredible coloring work on Iron and the Maiden. Don't forget issue #2 is in stores September 6th!!

P.S. My birthday is Sept. 14th. Send all gifts to the Aspen address in the inside front cover of your comic!

Manapu Hulku for Franku

This bad ass piece was given to Frank this past weekend in Toronto. Frank has one of, if not the largest Hulk original art collections on this side of Sakaar--yeah you know you like the Hulk reference!

Mark Roslan

I thought I should introduce myself~ Hello I'm Mark Roslan, Director of Design and Production. My job involves a lot of different things including putting the books together ready for the printer. Here is an alternate cover by Turner and Steigerwald for Iron and the Maiden #2 that will be at the Canadian National Expo in Toronto this weekend. I put the Logo on there and try to make it work with the cover - in this case I added a glow to compliment the light shinning through the bullet holes.

Try to drop by often and we should have some fun new things going on here. Maybe some inside scoops - some funny photos - new artwork - or just plain stories you wouldn't normally get to hear.


P.S. I also go by my nickname Roz.

Kiani #4 Peek-a-Boo

Hi All, I'm Vince, EIC and scribbler of words. Here's a look at the cover for issue 4 of Marcus To and I's series Kiani #4. Enjoy.

kid for a day

so i'm sitting here it's about 5 in the morning finishing up some titan's pages...thinking about all this craziness...i've been drawing comics for nearly 12 years now...crazy business... also it would seem that one of my artistic influences passed away this past weekend...even crazier condolences go out to his family...mike weiringo rest in peace man, you will be missed... so i'm working it's late i could really use a coke zero... my hairs in my face... and i wish i didn't have a rug burn on my cheek...

Hey guys so I figured I needed a new arena to challenge fellow artists, so I came up with this...THROWDOWN! It will be an art challenge where I and perhaps the other artists that post on here decide to challenge another artist at what they draw well!!! For example, artist Carlos D'anda is great at drawing robots, so I would challenge him to a robot draw off! Or Frank Cho-hot chikkies... you get the idea....So hopefully I'll get something set up soon!

Switch it up!!!

So...what is Pomme Noir Comics? Well as alot of you may know, I along with some fellow comic book artists, about two years ago started up a blog by the name of gelattometti. It was an amazing success, both creatively, and as a sounding board to interact with the fans... It grew to be quite big and is still going strong to this day! So... with that now that I, Ale Garza, now a newly minted member of Aspen studios, decided it was high time to give it another shot! So...with Pomme Noir Comics, PNC for all you hip kids...I'll be inviting my new Aspen brethren to come on and share some of thier studio insights, and personalities. Will it be as big of a success as the Wildstorm venture? Only time will tell...Either way...Let's get back to enjoying comics!!!
