Richard Moore's early Christmas present!

Hey, everyone! I'm back again with lots of exciting news (or, at least, news that's exciting to us here at Sequential Treasures H.Q.), so let me just cut right to the chase.

First off, our scanner issue has finally been resolved. I've gotten a new scanner and am back up to full operational capacity. This means that I will not only be able to replace the images of art I've recently posted, via my digital camera, with much better quality scans (in fact, I've already started to do so), but now new art updates can begin again in a much more timely manner.

And speaking of new art updates, that brings me to the other bit of news I have: A new 20 piece art update from Richard Moore. In this batch we have the complete 18 pages from Chip: Second Crack #2, the original cover to Chip: Second Crack #3, and a beautiful pin-up piece of M'Lady (shown right here)! They've all been updated to our art gallery, so head on over and give them a gander. Any of them would make a wonderful Christmas gift for that one you love (even if that person is yourself). Just think of this as an early holiday gift from Richard Moore and Sequential Treasures, to all of you. And as always, any art order of $150.00 or more gets free shipping across the globe. That big man in the red suit isn't the only one who can offer that.

Well, that about does it for now, but I'm sure I'll have some more news and tidbits for you before the year comes to a close. So, until next time, peace out!


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!


Ben Hansen does BellCon 2011 and more!

Hey there, my faithful ones! Time for your blogmaster to drop some knowledge on you, with some news you should have. Today, it's all about our own Ben Hansen.

First off, if you will be in Ferndale, WA this Saturday, you'll have to be sure to stop by the Bellingham ComiCon. They've got some really good guests this year, not least of which is Ben Hansen. He'll be there with his usual array of prints and comics, as well as doing sketches for the masses. This is Ben's last appearance for the year, so you don't want to miss your chance to see him, if you can. He can be found at table #50 (in the artist alley section) and the show runs from 10 am to 5pm. You can get all the necessary information at their website.

Next, I hope you've all been keep tabs on our Facebook page. If not, you are missing out on a set of sneak peek images from Ben's upcoming story from Moonstone Comics. The preview images are from the pages of Zombies vs. Cheerleaders #5. Based from the 5finity card set, the series blends teen angst with undead horror. This is the first part of a two part story. I'll be adding more previews later this week. So, make sure to check in with the page and get a gander at what Ben has in store for you. Think of it as an early Halloween treat. Part one of the story is due out later this month. I'll be sure to let you all know when it's ready to drop.

Lastly, I wanted to throw out a last minute reminder that the Marla Bea Breast Cancer benefit art auctions are ending later today. As you know, Ben Hansen (as well as Randy Kintz, Mike Vosburg, and Matt Haley) donated a piece to this wonderful cause. Many of the pieces up for grabs are still are very reasonable prices, so you have no reason not to throw on a bid on some of the great art that is available. You can view all the donations right here. Do your part to help a very worthwhile cause.

Well, that's all for now. I'll back again soon, as I'm expecting some new art shipments in shortly. Until then, peace out!


Are you looking for some new art?

Hey there, original art lovers! Sequential Treasures is back to give you the lowdown on some new art you can obtain for yourself. So, read on and get your knowledge on!

First off, the art auctions for the Marla Bea Breast Cancer Benefit have begun. This is the benefit's third year in action and they've done a lot of good with the previous art auctions. With nearly 50 pieces collected for this year, there's lots of great art up for grabs with all the proceeds going to help fight breast cancer. A worthwhile cause, if ever there was one. There's even pieces from our own Mike Vosburg, Matt Haley, Randy Kintz and Ben Hansen. You can see and bid on all the art for the benefit right here. Go on and throw some bids out there. The auctions will be running until October 19th, so you have plenty of time to do so. You just might get some great art and help a very important cause.

Speaking of Ben Hansen, if you don't feel you are the lucky type to win some great art, you can always buy some from us. We've just added several new pin-up pieces from Ben Hansen, onto our art gallery. They feature either Transformers or battling babes! Plus you have lots of other great art from our list of fine talents. Stop by the art gallery and check them our for yourself. And don't forget, anyone who places an art order of $150.00 or more gets FREE SHIPPING anywhere in the world! Now, that's a deal that's hard to beat.

Lastly, I have to say I was a bit surprised to get no response from any of you, on how we can improve the service here at Sequential Treasures. While I'd like to believe it's because we are doing everything right, I'm afraid even my ego isn't that large. So, please, let us know what we can do to make things even better for you all. We honestly take your suggestions and concerns very seriously at Sequential Treasures HQ.

Well, that's it for now. I'll be back soon with more new art and news for you all, even as we start to make plans for some stuff for you come 2012. There's no resting on our laurels around here. Until next time, peace out!


Hitting The Shelves: Batman and Robin #2

Hey there, everyone! We're back with more upcoming news for all your Sequential Treasures followers and some other bits of interest. So, strap in and let's get this show on the road!

This Wednesday sees the release of Batman and Robin #2, featuring the peerless inking of our own Mick Gary, from DC's new 52 reboot. It's father and son action, as Batman and Robin face the new menace of the villainous Nobody. That is, when they aren't verbally sparring with each other. This series was one of the better selling ones from the reboot last month and the reviews on it seem to suggest it is a bit of hit with folks. Here's a sampling of what's being said:

"If you are looking for a Batman book to pick up look no further than Batman and Robin." - Kevin of Comic Book Revolution

"Batman and Robin #1 is well paced book with a small dose of action, great dialogue, a memorable new villain, and great work by the art team." - Andrew Asberry of Batman-News.com

"The storytelling is crisp, punchy and clean—in both words and art—even when they both get pretty dark." - Jonathan Messinger of Time Out Chicago

"Batman & Robin #1 is, so far, one of the best of the New 52 releases." - Iann Robinson of Crave Online

"This issue was enjoyable from beginning to end." - Ben Gilbert of Panels On Pages

"... ultimately this tale is fresh, engaging, and a reason to breathe a sigh of continuity-relief." - Joshua Yehl of IGN

So, what more do you need for me to say? Make sure to pick up your copy of issue #2 at you LCS this week. Just look for the cover image shown here.

Now, I'd like to do a little something different. Art sales have been very light around here of late and it is something that needs to change. However, rather than my usual tact of trying to come up with something to help do that, I'm going to give the floor to you, our consumer base. I'd like to know your thoughts. Is there something we aren't doing, but should? Something we are doing, that we shouldn't? Is there something you'd like to see us doing more of? Or less? Or something we are totally missing the boat on? I don't pretend to have a lock on knowledge around here, so let us know what we can do to make the experience more interesting and enticing for you all. You can post your suggestions here, or at our Facebook page, or drop us an email from our art gallery. We really do value your thoughts, so let us know what you are thinking.

Well, that's it for now, but I'll be back soon with more news and art updates. Until then, peace out!


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!
