The Conclusion: Ace in the Hole

Dedicated to the memory of my cat, Buddy, who passed away a few days ago.

He was a sweetheart. I miss him and I love him.

From my last post
Let's continue...










Six new pages to the story. :)







The story will conclude at the end of March 2013. :)

Bow Wow! Icons!

Ace in the Hole

Before we get started I want to let you that I decided to put the one-panel holiday drawings and the DC Families drawings on hiatus for one year (The Death Clan, below, is the last one for now). My reason is I want to spend more time working on the stories that are piling up not only on my drawing pad but inside my head. I can't predict how much I will get done in a year, but I want to try without any extra artwork in the way. Real life is already a handful.

Also there is a chance I might not update every month like I normally do if the artwork is not ready.

Thank you for reading and for the support. I do appreciate it very much.

Okay, you might be wondering why the images are large instead of the usual size. It's because the Scrapbook is not working for me. It won't show all the drawings I uploaded to it. So I'll be using my Photobucket account. Sorry.

Well, I finally have a few new pages to the story of 'Ace in Hole' and I thought I would add the first two pages in case anyone forgot or never read them. Enjoy!

Oh, cliffhanger. To be continued...

As I mentioned above, the Death Clan.

Love can be a dangerous thing...

Finally, Icons!

Mr. Bat-Mom Part Two

Anyone remember the first part?

Thanks aaron_bourque of scans_daily

I never meant to take this long to finish Mr. Bat-Mom.

I won't bore you with my excuses but I'm glad to have it done.

I will state this: I will never put a story in parts again. I will only post them, no matter how long they are, as a complete story.

Thank you all for sticking around.

Be Happy!


Mom, can I have an icon?

Wow. It's the first of September.

Monster Mash: A Batman Black & White Tribute

Don't worry, Tim scores really big after this mess.

A tribute to the many writers and artists who contributed to the limited series.

For those of you who don't know what 'Batman Black & White' is, follow the link.

The Atoms

What did you say, Batman?

Small but Mighty Icons!

The Original Tiny Titan

A Tribute to Ryan

Okay, raise your hand if you thought I wasn't going to update this month. Come on, show them. :)

Father's Day

The Green Hood

Crime and Punishment

If you noticed, I didn't draw the Spectre's cape with the collar. I never could take him seriously with it and based the cape on Tom Mandrake's design.

Father's Day, Batman and Green Arrow, what a wonderful combination.

Icons! Lots of Icons!

And finally...

Mr. Bat-Mom Part One

Wait, it's not November first?

I'll be the first one to admit, I love stories of Bruce's failed attempt at domestic life. This man has been portrayed as someone who can burn a pot of water. But what if he was able to overcome his insecurities to the daily chores he thinks is part of a normal life, and step up to the plate to help his family out in their time of need?

Well, in this first Bat-chapter, we have witnessed Bruce winning the approval of Alfred and his two youngest sons, Tim and Terry as he puts his best efforts to care for them. But for the two older boys, Dick and Jason, this sudden change in their father has become their worse nightmare.

So what exactly will these two Robins do to pull Bruce out of the kitchen and back to being the Dark Knight?

Well, you’ll just have to wait for the next Bat-chapter of Mr. Bat-Mom!

(Hmm, better start working on it.)

Note: I was going to do this story first before Rivalry but of course, I changed my mind. So for me, I still think of this story taking place before JLA/JSA Family Gathering. If you want to think that way too, that's fine with me. :)

Right from the Bat-kitchen... Icons!


My tribute to Jeph Loeb & Tim Sale continues...

...And comes to an end.

Oooo... did this year go by fast or what?

Though we may have our opinions about the writers and artists who give life to our favorites characters, where some are considered god-like or good to evacuate one's stomach, their impact to the world of comics are and will be felt for years to come. I know for myself, when I pick up my pencil, I remember those who are my greatest influence and hope with my first stroke on the paper that I can be just as good as they are.

This is the end to my tribute to Mr. Loeb and Mr. Sale, but it’s only the beginning. There are many I hope one day to honor, so keep a lookout for them.

Here's some treats...

What the hell, it's Halloween! One more treat...

Watch out for the rocks...


Happy Halloween! See you in the next update.
