House of Cards Season 2 Teaser Trailer.
Netflix released this teaser trailer today for season two of House of Cards, and revealed the premiere date as Feb. 14, 2014. As like season one, all 13 episodes of season two will be available on the premiere date on Netflix.
At the moment, I don’t know. I started a new job that has me working into the wee hours of the night. It’s made it difficult to schedule a time to record or to keep up with what’s going on in the geek world. (Not to mention I’m missing out on my quality gaming time!)
The GB tumblr is still active & I’ll try my best to keep it up to date with current events.
I received this question on my personal tumblr & thought it would be good to transfer my response here.
Hopefully, this hiatus won’t be too much longer & I’ll be able to set aside some recording time in the studio. If anyone has any ideas for a show, don’t hesitate. Send me a message & I’ll take a peek.
TODAY IN COMIC BOOK HISTORY: DEC 2, 1971
DC’s first major black super hero, John Stewart, debuted in Green Lantern vol. 2 #87. An architect and U.S. Marine Veteran from Detroit, Stewart is selected to be a Green Lantern by the Guardians when Guy Gardner is seriously injured. Hal Jordan is against the choosing of Stewart, of course, but Stewart quickly proved him wrong. Sniffing out a fake assassination attempt by a corrupt politician and saving a police officer in the process.
Of course Stewart’s popularity really took off during the JL & JLU animated series where he was a founding member of the Justice League. He would go on to mentor many other heroes and had a close relationship with Wally West aka Flash and a romantic relationship with Hawkgirl with whom he has a son, Warhawk.
Stewart wears one of the GL power rings which allows him to make “constructs” powered by his imagination and willpower. Stewart is known as the “Master Builder” of the Corps because of his architect background, so he is known to make very complicated constructs. Stewart is also a trained Marine and is skilled at hand-to-hand combat and a variety of firearms.
Season 5 is coming. Right now — promotion-wise — we’re getting just the tip.
The new season of Archer will premiere Monday, January 13th on FX.

#23 Cover Art by Francesco Francavilla
When I drew this cover, I didn’t know it was gonna be the last one (the series is closing with issue #23, which is out this week): in a premonition-like state of mind, now it seems that Barnabas’ hand coming out from the coffin is almost a goodbye hand before disappearing into the coffin.
Gonna miss this title and doing covers for it: I was the cover artist since issue 1 and this (along with Lone Ranger and The Shadow) is one of my longest run as cover artist on the same title.
