Hitting The Shelves: Gobs #3

Hey there, my fellow art fans. It's once more time to give you all the lowdown on some upcoming work from one of our talented list of artistic masters. Onward and upward....

Getting released this week is Gobs #3 from Antarctic Press and our own Richard Moore. In the third chapter of this four issue mini-series, the gang's new pub--built in the petrified body of a dead giant--is now less a quaint drinking spot and more a reanimated killing machine rampaging through the countryside. Houses are smashed, elves are eaten...and the gobs finally decide they may have to leave their afternoon at the swimming hole and get involved. Expect hilarity and zaniness to ensue, just as you've come to expect from the mind of Richard Moore. And here's some words from others on what they think of it:

"Moore’s vision is unique and I really enjoy it." - Comic Book Newbie

This book is flying under a lot of folks radar, so make sure you pick up your copy at your local retailer this Wednesday. Just look for the cover image shown here. And if they don't have any in stock, tell them to order some.

Also, with the holiday season having officially started, why not get someone you love one of the most unique gifts you can: original art. It is one-of-a-kind, can be enjoyed all year round, and can be a special connection between people. So, stop on by our art gallery and place an order for some of Richard Moore's art (or any of our our other represented talents). As always, any art order over $150.00 get FREE SHIPPING worldwide. Make the season a bit more special and bright, by giving the gift of original art.

That's it for this one, gang. But I'll be back soon with more stuff for you, perhaps even our last art update for 2011 (you certainly wouldn't want to miss that). So, until next time, peace out!


Randy Kintz at the Portland Comic Book Show on Sunday!

Hey there, comic art enthusiasts! As the year is coming to a close, there's still lots of things happening around the old Sequential Treasures homestead. So, let me dish on what is going down.

First off, Happy Veterans Day to everyone! Sequential Treasures would like to throw out a salute to all the men and women who fight and sacrifice, so we can enjoy the freedom to do as we do. Our own Randy Kintz is a veteran, so it is even more important to us to take a moment as thank all of those who serve to protect our way of life. You can join us in doing so at our Facebook page, where we've set up a nice little way for you to express your thanks to Randy and all veterans. I hope you will do so.

Next, this Sunday is the Portland Comic Book Show in Portland, OR. It's not only the state's longest running comic convention, but a mainstay on Randy's own schedule. He'll be hanging out in Artist Alley, with some original art and sketchbooks on hand, as well as doing sketches for the fans. On top of that is his usually array of incredible prints, including a new Black Cat piece that is getting debuted at this show (you can see it on our Facebook page, too). But, take note, some of his classic prints will be getting retired after this show. So, if you are in the area this Sunday make sure to stop by the show and see Randy. It is his last show appearance for 2011. You can get directions and more info on who'll be at the show, at their website. Also, if you are very observant, you might even see a certain blogmaster roaming around the show as an attendee.

Of course, if you can't make the show, you can still get yourself some art by Randy from our art gallery (as well as some art from all of our other fine talents). We live to serve here at Sequential Treasures H.Q.

That's all for now. I'll be back soon with more news and info for you all, I'm sure. Until then, peace out!


Hitting The Shelves: Batman and Robin #3

Hey there, my faithful comic art fiends! Time to once again give you the lowdown on some upcoming work from our talented creators, that's due to hit the comic shops this week. So, let us get to it!

This week, we have the release of Batman and Robin #3, featuring the inking prowess of Mick Gray, as DC Comics continues the "steamroller" know as The New 52! In this installment, as Robin does all he can to keep his own killer instincts at bay, Batman focuses his energies on Nobody, the deadly enigma from Bruce’s past who has arrived in Gotham and is hellbent on forcing him to accept a new world crimefighting view, even as he infiltrates the Waynes’ personal lives. The drama and action continues!

While many of these New 52 books are getting some nice buzz, Batman and Robin is certainly one of the most praised. Just look below at what some of the critics are saying around the weberverse:

"...Batman and Robin #2 is a fantastic follow-up to a spectacular issue #1." - Erik Norris of IGN Comics

"Batman and Robin #2 is simply a comic with a lot of soul. We need more of this." - Devon Sanders of Chud.com

"Batman and Robin #2 was another great entry from the team of Peter Tomasi and Patrick Gleason." - Kevin of Comic Book Revolution

"There's always room for a comic like 'Batman and Robin'..." - Greg McElhatton of CBR

" Gray’s work gives definition to Gleason’s pencils... It’s breathtaking work." - Iann Robinson of Crave Online

As you can see, the good word on this book doesn't seem to be slowing down. So, make sure to pick up a copy of the latest issue at your LCS this Wednesday. Just look for the cover image shown here. But if you are the impatient type, or simply need more convincing, make sure to check out this six page preview of Batman and Robin #3. You'll be glad you did.

Also, I have an update on the scanner issue. We soon might have a new one, which will mean better quality images of future art updates (not to mention better scans of some of the recent ones we've had). It's not a sure bet just yet, but I'm hopeful that by the end of this month Sequential Treasures will be back to full operating capacity, as far as providing great images of our comic art for sale.

And speaking of that, sales have been... how to put this... extremely dry of late. I'm really at a loss to explain this, especially as we've been updating new art for sale fairly regularly again. With the holidays just around the bend, I'm hoping to see amajor change on this, so we can end our year on a high note. We've even lowered the prices on most of our current inventory. So, if you've been pinching your pennies, now is the time to strike. Stop by our art gallery and place an order. Remember, all art orders of $150.00 or more get FREE SHIPPING anywhere in the world! Can't ask for much better than that, can you?

Well, that's all for now. I'll be back soon with more news and maybe even an art update. Until then, peace out!
