…and Other SuperCow Related Stuff!

Still with us El Moochadores? Sorry for the lack of post lately, but Jason and I have been working really hard on getting things ready for our first comic book convention. Next week we will be tabling at Cherry City Comic Con in Salem, Oregon. If you happen to live in the area, we encourage you to come on out to the con and see all the nifty art work we’re bringing. Frigg’n Flash Gordon is gonna be there too! Keen.

Anyways, we’ll be podcasting from the con and getting as many interviews as we can, but I wanted to blog about some of the stuff we’ll be bringing up.MurrayBrosLogo

This convention kind of (sort of) marks the launch of our parent creative company: Murray Brothers Creative. The site isn’t functional yet. We’re currently building the elements for the new site, and it’ll be through Murray Bros. that we’ll be selling our art work. Also at the con we’ll have the above (look up. At the top of the page…) Atomic Moo mini-print (5×7) along with promotional buttons, and a small preview (ashcan) of Atomic Moo #1! I just posted a rough version of Page 4 to the Atomic Moo Comic Book page,AM_Buttons but also check it out below. Also, we’ll have over twenty different prints and mini-prints. I posted a small sample below, along with one of my favorites, Robot Gorilla!

I’m in the middle of my work week, and we’re really busy with preparing for the CCCC 2016, so I probably won’t be posting as much this week, but I’ll see if I can’t get a few post in before we leave. There’s still a ton of great stuff from WonderCon that I’m working my way through. I’ll try and blog from my iPhone with the scant free time, when possible. Keep Checking back for more updates and cool art!

Things are gett’n awesome!

James Bond: Spectre!

Cover

An Atomic Moo Comic Book Review of The Complete Comic Strip Collection!

I have no idea if this is true or not, but a very long time ago my father told me why they decided to name me “Sean.” According to him; When my twin brother and I were born, they were not prepared for the extra kid. So, the first baby twin got the only name they had picked out: Jason. Which left me without a name for at least a month (knowing my parents, it was probably far longer, but we’ll go with a month…). I’m not sure what they called me during that time, but it wasn’t until my dad was at his work one day that he looked up and saw a James Bond flick playing out on the old TV. Seeing this, he called my mom and said, “why don’t we name him Sean? S-E-A-N?” Now, knowing my parents, I’m probably very lucky Green Acres wasn’t playing, otherwise I might have spent the last 39 years as a “Wilbur.” However, I got Sean, all thanks to one of the early Bond films. DNJamesBond41So, because of that, I’ve always had kind of an affinity towards the old, Connery, James Bond flicks. Not a tight connection, but enough to make me very grateful that my friends don’t know me as “Jethro” or “Gilligan.”

So, what this is all leading up to is: Titan Books has recently published this incredible new volume of collected Bond comic strips! Yeah, took me awhile to get there, but I wanted you to know that this book actually meant a lot to me for totally un-associated reasons. Ian Fleming’s James Bond: Spectre, the Complete comic strip collection, contains all the strips that appeared in newspapers from 1961 to 1966 with a forward by Spectre screenwriter, John Logan. Here’s the official synopsis:

The daring James Bond is back, this time in a lavishly put together collection celebrating the iconic SPECTRE storylines. Featuring 1. Thunderball 2. On Her Majesty’s Secret Service 3. You Only Live Twice 4. The Spy Who Loved Me.
These fully restored and thrilling stories are based on the original Ian Fleming James Bond novels.

Every part of this book is amazing! The design, and layout, of the volume is beautiful in a way that would make a Bond girl jealous. And that’s just the cover!mclusky_john_007 In between is a collection of wonderfully illustrated comic strips, most of which are illustrated by John McLusky, but some are done by artist know as Horak. Sounds kind of ominous… Like a guy with with razor wire hidden in one of his fingers… However; they’re still fun and they all have that classic “James Bond” feel to them. Also, they’re very detailed despite being in black and white. Modern day inkers (tracers) could learn a lot from McLusky’s style.

The entire book was a lot of fun to read. It’s like Mad Men but with spies, nukes, and dames! After reading the Spectre collection, I totally want to be the James Bond from that era! I want the secretary you can unabashedly flirt with, and the constant whiskeys, martinis, and cigarettes! I want to fly around the world having cool adventures with sexy broads! But, nope. I just get student loan debt and a few ugly ex-girl friends. damn. Anyways…

I’ve posted a couple of sample strips I found on the web, but if you find a copy of Spectre at a book store, I highly recommend picking it up and adding it to your collection! Also, go check out titanbooks.com to get your own copy!

Cheers!

Pimpkillah Returns!

Okay El Moochadores, the new Moocast is here, and it didn’t take me 2 months to finish. Cool. Anyways, on this episode: We’re trying out our new podcasting equipment! Well, it’s just an iPhone, app, and a mic,tl8afrvoiwxfoup6uncx but still kind of neat! Then: comic creator Sarah Bitely is back on the show to tell us about Pimpkillah issue #2, and her new film project. Also (because I managed to get this episode done before the con), Sarah will be attending Wondercon this weekend. If you can get to Anaheim this weekend go check out Pimpkillah at artist alley, table D-24!

Well, we aint getting any younger, folks! Now’s the time to reach over and hit play on this work of auditory genius. First though, go grab some salty snacks, fizzy drinks, and comfy chairs! Settle in, and prepare yourselves for a Moocast that may (no promises) alter your brain. Hopefully in a good way.

The Moo Against Humanity

WE RIDE AGAIN! Holy shit, we did it! We made (for better or worse… ok worse) another episode of The Atomic Moocast. I won’t wait for your applause.

On this episode of the world’s greatest, low budget, podcast Chudd and I discuss our preparation forCards Cherry City Comic Con. This’ll be the first time we’re tabling at a con and we hope to bring our art, comic, and podcast to Salem Oregon to some level of success. We hope. Many thanks go to John Roach and Nicole Brune for this opportunity.

Then we get on the Skype with fellow Brethren Moo Dave (D20) Smith and Chris (Buttery) French and played some online Cards Against Humanity. It was… interesting. Those of you with a politically correct vibe are gonna want to fuck right off for this one.

One other note about this episode: I got a new headset/mic and it’s not great. The audio seems just a bit off, but I’m working on it!

So here we go folks! It’s been far too long and we got a podcast hot ready for your ear holes! Hurry! Go now and secure a comfy spot! Surround yourself with many a salty snack and fizzy drink! Then plug in, turn on, and enjoy the best damn podcast your friends don’t know about!

    An Atomic Moo Update

    Atomic-Moo-Moocast-Icon-600x600

    Hey El Moochadores! It’s been a few days since I posted here, so I thought I’d give a quick update on what’s going on with Atomic Moo. New blog post might be kind of sparse the next few weeks. I’ve been putting in extra time at work, so it might get tough to post about the all the cool geeky creative stuff out there, but there is some good news! Atomic Moocast #113 will be done in a few days. This one should be pretty cool, because we have the original Brethren Moo back on the podcast. Also, Chudd and I have been working really hard on creating original new fan art.KilowogPreview Here’s a sample of a Kilowog portrait I’ve been working on. Chudd did the original sketch, I’ve just been digitally painting over it. It’s not nearly finished yet, but it is helping me keep my sanity. Finally, we’ll be going to Cherry City Comic Con in Salem Oregon at the end of April (April 30th to May 1st). I don’t have table information yet, but I’ll definitely post about it once we have know. We’re really excited for this event, and the chance to podcast from the con. Chudd will also have some original art for sale, and he’s working hard on getting his prints ready. So, yeah. That’s what’s going on with us. I’ll have regular (as regular as I can) post back on the site soon, so keep coming back!

    Cheers!

On this episode talented artist Nicole Brune joins the show to share a little hope and optimism.NB-headshot-IMG_5344-jan-2015 Also, to make sure we’re working on the stuff we said we’d be working on. I actually recorded this interview with Nicole way back in November 2015 (if you can remember back that far) and yeah, it took me a while to get this one together (sorry Nicole!) but it’s ready and hopefully Jason and I can get back on to a regular schedule of recording and new interviews. Anyways, it was great having Nicole on the show once again and we’re hoping to have back on sometime in the future.
