In honor of Michael Turner, Artsenal still went on this past weekend in Chicago. Mike was definitely there watching as David, Francis, and Talent all put there artistic hands to his character, Aspen Matthews. The results were nothing less than phenomonal, as all three out did themselves! So without further ado we give to you, in Mike's honor, Artsenal Round 3, Aspen Matthews!!!

The largest comic book artist sketch-battle competition in history continues as the ARTSENAL 2008 moves into round 3 at Wizard World Chicago 2008 with the teams neck and neck in points! TEAM KIANI currently leads the pack with 61 total votes while team Aspen isn't too far behind with 52. Team Grace started round one strong with a W but has since slipped into third with 42 points. But no team is safe in the ultimate battle of lead and paper, so without any more delay here are your round 3 gladiators:
Talent Caldwell's made his name in comics on the hit titles Fathom, Gen13, and Wildcats--now he's looking to brand his name on the ARTSENAL 2008 Round 3 trophy! Tal's been steady training with a diet of vodka and HGH to strengthen his mind and wrists in order to drop his sweet science on his unlucky competitors!
Dave Finch is a superstar in the biz working on titles like Fallen Son and the New Avengers-and he's one hell of a nice guy also! But now he's cashing in his nice-guy smile for a can of ass whoopin' deluxe that he'll serve chilled to his Artsenal Round 3 foes!
Team Grace needed a pick-me-up after falling into third place in the voting, but now they've reloaded with the greatest sketch-battle competitor in history! The sketch battle legend himself--Francis Manapul! When asked about his legendary battle reputation on the streets, Francis humbly replied: "Aint no myth--it be fact, I'm the Great One."

Thanks to everyone who stopped by our booth and attended our Aspen Panel at Wizard World Philly. It was great to hear that Fathom #0 was getting an awesome response from the fans and new readers.
Look forward to more Aspen Matthews in the new Showcase book due out pretty soon - 6.25.08.
For those of you that missed the panel - we showed off this page from the book.
