So I just bought Iron Man: Enter The Mandarin. This is the first Iron Man comic I've ever read. I remember watching the movie and thinking: "Wow, Iron Man is a LOT like Batman." Now after reading this mini-series my suspicions are confirmed. Iron Man IS Batman. WTF? The art was great in this comic by the way. Dude named Eric Canete. Really flowing organic style. Reminds me of Denys Cowan. I think he's French. But I digress. Even the villains are straight outta Batman. The Mandarin is Ra's Al Ghul. And another guy who looks exactly like the Scarecrow whose name is, (are you ready?) SCARECROW. That being said, I thought it was great. It made me wonder what it would be like if it was a Batman book. Oh yeah, it would be EXACTLY the same. Come ON Marvel. At least give him different baddies to fight.

I just made this poster and posted it around campus. (The smiling head is by Rudy Dean Guara) Hopefully we get a lot of people ready to ride this crazy train. I'm going to be there for the full 24- but I guess the school doesn't want kids being on campus overnight. Well, even 12 hours is a heckuva long time to draw. Last year was a lot of fun- so I'm looking forward to this one. Get the Red Bull ready!
