MADMAN by Mitch Gerads

Steve Bryant, you magnificent genius.

There's two books that are super near and dear to my heart and those are Steve Rude's NEXUS and Mike Allred's Madman. Imagine my reaction when they did the crossover!

Aside from the best Zany, wacky, crazy adventures around, Mike Allred's opus features my 2nd favorite comic couple of Frank and Joe. Lois and Clark being the #1 pick. Imagine my reaction when they did the crossover!

You know what crossover Frank hasn't been a part of? Batman. So without dealing with any copyright crossovers, here's my homage to a Madman/Batman crossover, cuz' you KNOW Frank would be all over that if he could!

I can't wait to see the colours.

Didn't get Ron's comment until I looked at it again, and, wow, Frank really is putting it all out there. Coincidence that it's at eye level with Joe?

Schwing indeed!

Steve Bryant said...

Great piece, Mitch! Madman, and Mr. Allred's work in general, are among my favorite comics of the last 20 years.


Mr. Hawthorne said...

Man, I'm SO glad you posted the inks! I dig color illos, but sometimes you just wanted to see the inky goodness!

Great work, Mitch. You can feel the love in it :-)

This is all kinds of awesome. Are you going to do prints for Springcon? Are you going to be at Springcon even? I bought some prints last year and want to get this one and maybe some more.

Brandon O'Donnell said...

Best illustration I've come across in a long time. Nice work.

Mitch Gerads said...

You guys are all kinds of Awesome. Thanks so much for all the thumbs up action.

JC - You should DEFINITELY read Madman! There's a new 64 page special coming out in a couple weeks!

MIKE - Your reception of this has me OVER DA MoooOOOoon! You've made my week!

brobinson50 - I will definitely be at Springcon and I will "probably" have some TWART prints. Most likely.


Mitch Gerads said...

PS. Perhaps someone should start a drinking game where you have to drink every time I say "crossover" in my post. But I would rather you all live.

davelevine said...

Wow! The inks are nice but the addition of colors (especially the reds) make this picture pop, make it out of this world gorgeous, and help to draw my eye away from the wood. :D
