Of Comicons and Cancer Benefits...

Hey there, my faithful art fans. Time to once again give you all the latest scoop on the happening around the Sequential Treasures home base.

First of all, I'd like to thank all of those who came out to see us at the Jet City Comic Show last Saturday. I'd like to, really, but folks would have had to show up for me to do that. This was probably just about the worst attended show I've ever seen. There were more vendors and artists walking the floor than fans. Needless to say Sequential Treasures will NOT be making an return engagement there. Maybe the show's creators should make sure people actually will show up to the event, before they host it.

Be that as it may, it still hasn't slowed down our own plans. As since October is soon upon us, so is another event that has become a mainstay for us: The Marla Bea Breast Cancer Benefit. For those of you not familiar, a friend of mine start up this benefit a couple years ago, to help raise money to fight breast cancer. He uses donated original pieces of art, from many generous artists, and auctions them off with all the proceeds going to a research center in Iowa that is working for a cure to breast cancer. He does it in October, as that is also breast cancer awareness month.

Those of us who are a part of Sequential Treasures have always helped out in years past and this year in no different. Several of our artists have donated an original piece for the cause. Here's a list of this year's pieces:

  • Arcee (from the Transformers) by artist Ben Hansen

  • Dagger by Mike Vosburg

  • Poison Ivy by Randy "Rantz" Kintz

  • Spider-Woman by Matt Haley

You can see all of the art pieces our artists listed above donated on our Facebook page. You can learn more about the benefit, as well as all the other artists who are donating to this worthy cause at their website. The auctions will be starting on October 12th and can be found at this eBay account. Please, do your part and help to support a very worthwhile benefit.

Well, that's all for now. But there is more coming down the pipeline, as we swing into the final months of 2011. Make sure to stay tuned here, as these things develop. Until next time, peace out!


New Mike Vosburg art for sale and convention news!

Hello folks! Well, I'm back again with more news, info and new art for sale. That sure didn't take long, did it? Things are really moving around Sequential Treasures HQ, so let's get right to the good stuff:

First off, we've just added several new pieces of art for sale from artist Mike Vosburg. We have four new pin-ups, featuring Vampirella (as shwon here), Red Sonja, Dejah Thoris and more. As if that wasn't enough, we also have three new published pages of Mike's creation, Lori Lovecraft. The links provided will take you to the pieces. Place an order, if you see something you like. It's all good stuff!

And now, I have some convention news for all of you. This weekend, it will pay to be a west coaster. For Randy Kintz, Ben Hansen and I will all be at the Jet City Comic Show in Seattle, WA this Saturday, while Richard Moore and Mick Gray will be at the Sac-Con in Sacramento, CA on Sunday. So, it's a weekend of meet and greet with Sequential Treasures and much of her artistic roster. If you can make either of these shows, please do as we're always happy to talk to the fans. Link to the shows websites have been provided, so you can get all the details.

Whew! It sure is a busy time for all of us here, but that's the way we like it. That's all the news I have for you right now. I'm sure I'll be back soon, though, with even more. So, until then, peace out!


Hitting The Shelves: Gobs #2

Once again, my faithful followers, it's time to give you more news about some upcoming works, from one of our illustrious talents, which will be available this wednesday in all finer comic shops!

Given the major art update we had this weekend, it shouldn't be much of a surprise that Richard Moore is keeping things rolling. Gobs #2 is due out this week from Antarctic Press. In this issue of the four part mini-series, Milo and the rest of the gobs have finished turning the hollowed-out body of a dead giant into a pub. They reward themselves with a fun, refreshing dip in the old swimming hole. Yay! Splishy-splashy fun! ...Oh, and the giant comes to life and goes on a deadly rampage. More whacky hijinks from the master of merthful comedy. Just look for the cover shown here.

The series has been getting some good reviews thus far. Here's a couple of them:

"The crisp, cartoony, black & white line work in the book is perfectly matched to the script's irreverent style." - Luke Matthews at the Geek Elite Blog at IGN

"[Richard Moore's] art brings it all to life." - The Comic Book Newbie

And don't forget, we just added almost 40 pages of Richard's art for sale at the art gallery. The pages are from Chip: Second Crack #3 and Boneyard #2. Free shipping for any art order over $150.00, too. Head over to the art gallery and place your order now!

Well, that's all for now. But there's more stuff coming this week, including another update of art and some convention appearance news. You'll certainly not want to miss out on those. So, until then, peace out!


The Richard Moore art update you've all been waiting for!

Hey there, all you original art lovers! Some big news for you all today. I've got some of the biggest and best news to hit you all with today, so let me just get to it!

Sequential Treasures has just added almost 40 pages of new art for sale from artist Richard Moore. These are the page sets to two complete issues, as well. But the biggest news, is the titles they are from.First is the complete 17 pages to Chip: Second Crack #3, while the rest are the complete 22 pages to issue #2 of Richard's most beloved series: Boneyard (to which one of the pages is shown here above)!

I've been asked many time when interiors from Boneyard would be available to buy and that time has now come. You can check out all these new additions right here. But get your orders placed quickly, as I expect the best pages to go fast. Also, don't forget, that any order of art for $150.00 or more gets FREE SHIPPING anywhere in the world!

That's all for now, but I have more on the way. I'm expecting more new art before the end of the week and also have news about some more upcoming new works due to be released, as well as some conventions appearances. So, things aren't slowing down in the least around here. Be sure to keep checking in here (as well as let us know what you are thinking about these things). Until next time, peace out!


Hitting The Shelves: Batman and Robin #1

Hey there, faithful one! Well, things are really picking up around the old Sequential Treasures H.Q., which is just how we like it. There's lots of news to let you all in on, so let's get right to it.

First off, we have some new work hitting comic shops this week. DC Comics big relaunch has taken the comic world by storm and our own Mick Gray is a part of the proceedings. Due out on Wednesday, is the Batman and Robin #1 relaunch (which features Mick's inks over the pencils of Patrick Gleason). Bruce Wayne is now teamed up with his son, Damien, but what will be harder for this new dynamic duo: the villains they face, or trying to work together? The only way to find out is to pick up a copy. But do so fast, as this book is one of several that has had a sellout at the distribution level and later printings, while forthcoming, will be tough to come by. Just look for the cover shown here, when you pick up your weekly stash.

But that isn't all, as Mick is going to be doing some local shop signings to further promote this debut launch. On the 15th, you can see Mick at Illusive Comics and Games in Santa Clara, CA. He'll be there from 5pm to 8pm, autographing copies of the book, as well as doing some sketching and talking comics with those who attend. Then, on the 17th, he'll be doing the same at Flying Colors Comics in Concord, CA from 12pm to 3pm. So, if you'll be in the area of these shops during these times, make sure to drop by.

Shifting from comic in shops, to comics on the web, we have Randy Kintz's work on Columbia's Underbelly for Darkbrain Comics. Columbia’s Underbelly is a 116 page story that will be told in 5 chapters – first one starting this week – and then with bi-monthly issues to its completion. So, make sure to join up at Darkbrain's website (linked here) and check out what craziness Randy will be bringing to you. You can see a sample page of it right here.

Lastly, if you haven't joined our Facebook page you are missing out on some fun stuff. Of late, I've been putting up "sneak peek" art from upcoming works by our array of talent. A few weeks ago, I gave you glimpses into Batman and Robin #1. This week, I've been putting up some teasers to Ben Hansen's upcoming one-shot from Moonstone Comics called Air Vixens. So, make sure to "like" us and you'll be able to check out some interesting tidbits on yet to be released works from our roster of artists.

Well, that about does it for now. But there's more to come very soon. I have some new art expected in from some of our artists (including some Richard Moore work I've been asked about more times than I care to remember), plus some convention appearances within the next couple weeks. So, don't expect things to quiet down here for some time. Until next time, peace out!


A not very "labor-ious" art update!

Hey there, art fiends! I hope you all had a great Labor Day holiday, as we mark the unofficial end of summer. But just because the temperatures might start to cool down, we are only heating things up at Sequential Treasures H.Q.! And what better way to show that, than with a new update of awesome art for sale.

First off, we have serveral new pin-up pieces by the illustrious Ben Hansen. In this batch we have them featuring the characters from Transformers, B.P.R.D., and a really sweet Batman (done in zombie style). In addition, we have a beautiful new pin-up of Ms. Marvel, which you can also see above, by the one-and-only Mike "Voz" Vosburg! You can check all of them out at our art gallery. Head on over and place an order. You'll be glad you did (to say nothing of the wonders it'd do for us).

Also, if you have joined our Facebook Page, you really should. Aside from also posting the latest news there, I've been doing extra fun stuff, like posting up special "sneak peeks" at some upcoming art by our wonderfully awesome rosster of talents. Recently, I posted up several preview images from the upcoming Batman and Robin #1 relaunch, courtest of our own Mick Gray, which is due out later this month. I have more coming up from others in the future. So, come over and join in the fun!

Well, that's all for this time, but there's plenty of more stuff coming up over the course of this month, including more art updates (including some art several of you have been asking for), some upcoming convention appearances, and new books hitting comic shop from several of our artists. So, it's going to be a busy month around here. You'll want to check back here often, to keep up with it all. Until next time, peace out!
