When I was a kid growing up there was a place called "The Salvage Shop" where you could buy back issues. Not sure why but they had a ton of the crappy DC Implosion titles, like Freedom Fighters, Steel, Karate Kid, Black Lightning, etc, but even as a kid the Ragman title stood out to me (I didn't know artists' names at the time). These are now part of my Joe Kubert non-war collection, even though Joe only penciled one issue, but he did do the layouts for all the issues. I'm a big fan of Joe Kubert but I'm not a fan of war titles.

If you want to see the cover to Ragman #6 you need to get a copy of Cancelled Comic Cavalcade.


I read Steel #2 not that long ago. http://h3athrow.blogspot.com/2017/12/a-human-secret-weapon.html It's not bad, but quite similar to other books along the same lines. The series only lasted five issues.

Thanks, Subby. I decided to expand my Avengers run out to #300, and this bunch leaves 2 or 3 issues. Since I'm pretty much at a standstill on ASM #1 & #3 until I see a book and price I feel okay with, I thought I'd put my focus back on The FF. So naturally I'm feeling miserable for selling my #45, 46, 48-50, & 52 years ago :sad2:

I bought a Wacom Cintiq 13 digital art tablet, and am playing around with a couple programs on a trial basis. It takes a little getting used to, but I think it's going to be loads of fun. This is my first complete attempt at a digital "inking" of a Ron Frenz sketch I own (ecept in mine, Superman's gaze is looking forward rather than down). Keeping the line thickness consistent will take some practice.

Nice job! Does it require special software on your computer or is it included with the tablet?

Nice FF pickups. Loved the death of Dr. Doom and his return story.

Yes. There are many, but I'm trying Sketchbook Pro and Clip Studio EX. Both seem to have certain advantages over the other, so I'll probably use both. Clip Studio seems better for "painted" art, and Sketchbook "feels" more natural when it comes to pen/pencil strokes.

Very cool. I thought about getting a tablet such as the one you got but I didn't think I could commit the time to actually use the device.

That's tbe tricky part- Using it often enough to justify the cost.

Amateur CT, disclosed. Sometimes sacrifices have to be made.

Upgrades.
The ASM 51 was included with the 50. It looks more like 8.5 to me, but still makes a nice bonus and upgrade.
