    Hector Plasm in “Wilfred Hall” (original version)

    This story is the first appearance of Hector Plasm, the paranormal adventurer character created by me and Nate fetorpse Bellegarde. Originally this story was serialized in four parts running in the back of Invincible #10-13 in 2004. The plot was inspired by a number of ghost stories told on the campus of the college where I went for undergrad, and put together in such a way that something (hopefully) interesting happened every two pages to hold readers’ attentions until the next installment.

    When the story was collected in Hector Plasm: De Mortuis, it was completely redrawn and re-scripted with new scenes added, and the new version was colored by Jacob Baake. (The original version above was colored and lettered by Nate Bellegarde.)

    Nate would probably be mortified if I didn’t mention that the art in the later version is much more refined when compared to the original version, but this should give you an idea of the story and character. For those who already have De Mortuis, this might be an interesting comparison. To get a better idea of what the art in De Mortuis is like, compare this complete (free) story, “Palamon’s Conundrum.”

    If you enjoyed this story or appreciate the things I post on this blog, please consider checking out some of my comics.

    The Hector Plasm stories are collected in two volumes, still available from comic stores if you ask them to order them for you, or digitally:

    Other horror or Halloween-y comics by me available digitally include:

    Other comics drawn by Eisner nominee Nate Bellegarde can be found here.

    Happy Halloween.

    Happy National Coming Out Day!

    heatherannehogan:

    I want to thank y’all so much for sending me your coming out stories for National Coming Out Day. I have cried like a baby and laughed like a hyena reading all of them. I’m working on a giant master post right now, but in the meantime, here is my own coming out story. 

    I realized I was gay when I was eight years old. I didn’t know what it meant to be gay. I didn’t even know the word “gay.” I was sitting at my desk wearing red and black Pro-Wing high-tops, a pair of cut-off jeans, and a Bart Simpson t-shirt I’d stolen from the lost and found at my church. I’d just failed a spelling test, I hadn’t finished my science project, I didn’t have any lunch money, and A.J. Smith signed his name with a heart on the cast on my arm.

    Everyone said, “Oooooh, he looooves you.” And I knew instantly and as sure as a slap to the face that there was something wrong with me. Something different. Something weird. A.J. told everyone to shut up. He ran out to the playground. And I sat at my desk making promises to myself to myself that whatever it was I’d just realized, whatever thing was broken inside me, whatever awfulness was worse than wearing sneakers from Payless and having to steal clean clothes, I would never, ever, ever let anyone figure it out.

BILL SIENKIEWICZ CORRECTS TERRIBLE ‘SUPERMAN DOES IT AGAIN’ SHIRT WITH APPROPRIATE LEVELS OF VIOLENCE
By Chris Sims
By now, you’ve probably heard all about the genuinely awful licensed t-shirt featuring Superman planting a seemingly unwelcome smooch on Wonder Woman and proclaiming “SCORE!” and that he’s “done it again.” It’s bad for a lot of reasons — blatant sexism, the awful lettering of the caption box — but, as an optimist, I’ve always taken the position that nothing is so bad that it can’t be improved in some way. And apparently, that’s Bill Sienkiewicz’s position as well.
After everyone got up in short-sleeved arms about the shirt, the legendary artist behind Elektra: Assassin, New Mutants and much much more  took to Facebook in order to provide his own version of the shirt, complete with a new piece of art for the back that solves its major problems in the way that all superheroes fix things: Violence!

    "I wanted to … make [Rorschach] as like, ‘this is what Batman would be in the real world’. But I have forgotten that actually to a lot of comic fans, ‘smelling’, ‘not having a girlfriend’, these are actually kind of heroic! So Rorschach became the most popular character in Watchmen. I made him to be a bad example. But I have people come up to me in the street and saying: ‘I AM Rorschach. That is MY story’. And I’d be thinking: ‘Yeah, great. Could you just, like, keep away from me, never come anywhere near me again as long as I live?’"
