Ian is an up and comer whose art demands your attention. You can start
by checking out his mind-blowing shorts in BATMAN ETERNAL #11,
SECRET ORIGINS #4, and this last year's DETECTIVE COMICS #27

DECLAN SHALVEY & JORDIE BELLAIRE 3D-O-RAMA!

We just got our copies of the book and we're crazy excited for everyone
to see it for themselves when it hits the stands this next wednesday!
We'll use this "cross view" preview of Declan & Jordie's piece as an excuse
to celebrate this personal event. The book is a completely different and
much smoother viewing experience with the glasses (well, you don't
have to cross your eyes for one thing).  Many who've seen the book
have said it's their favorite printed 3D experience. Thank you to everyone
who joined in the party, and especially our "3D master, Christian LeBlanc!

MING DOYLE 3D-O-RAMA!

MADMAN meets MING-MANIA! It's impossible to keep up on

MORE 3D PREVIEW FUN!

Hi Gang!  Christian LeBlanc has officially finished all the
3D conversions and we are currently on schedule to have the
MADMAN In Your Face 3D Special on your favorite comic shop's
shelf by the end of the month!  There's so much ginchiness in the
book that I'm happy to preview several side by sides without feeling
like I'm giving too much away.  Here's Marcos Martin's killer
contribution!  As the images we've released before, just click on
the double image to make it bigger, and slightly cross your eyes
making a third 3D image in the center.  And remember, the
Special will come with custom Madman 3D specs so you won't
have to worry about your eyes getting stuck (you're gonna look
silly either way).  But here, no specs needed:

Here's another "Crossview"sneaky peek for next month's 3D Special!  Again, the Special will come with nifty custom Madman 3D specs, but if you can slightly cross your eyes creating a third image between the two, you'll get a crisp clear 3D image here of Frank Einstein surfing with Bob Burden's ingenious Flaming Carrot without the specs.  3D conversions by the mad genius Christian LeBlanc!  Click on it to make it bigger for better viewing.

BATMAN '66 COVERS (so far)!

It's crazy to think that in a couple year's time I've done over 40 Batman
(or Batman inspired) covers!  I dreamed big when I was a little kid, but
I don't think I dreamed this big.  Laura and I have been having the best
time with everything we get to do in the "Comic Book Biz"and don't
take anything for granted. I'll update with more cover images when I have
another stack built, but here's what I've drawn, and Laura has colored,
that has been released so far:

BATMAN '66 no.1


So excited to draw the BATMAN '66 covers, I actually drew the era's logo 
on the original art for a couple of the covers.  Couldn't help m'self.
This image immediately came to mind, wanting to incorporate the Adam West
& Burt Ward likenesses into the show's animated opening credit design.
My brother, Lee, and I are creating a story for the series that is built entirely 
around the images from that sequence.

BATMAN '66 no.2 
The Batgirl image was digitally removed and used for a later issue.



BATMAN '66 no.3


BATMAN '66 no.4
Swinging London



BATMAN '66 no.5
Batgirl again!


 BATMAN '66 no.6

 BATMAN '66 no.7


BATMAN '66 no.8
I think this was the second cover I completed (which would explain 
why I again drew the logo directly on the original art).  The story got 
bumped for a later issue.  This art is now getting prepped for a gallery 
show in Portugal.




BATMAN '66 no.9
This was the original "Shame" cover, thus the "S" on the boots.



BATMAN '66 no.10






















































































BATMAN '66 no.17

FRANK EINSTEIN IN 3D!

Here's a preview of the cover to this fall's 3D special!  If you have some 3D specs
laying around, throw 'em on and give this preview a gander!  The actual
book will come with custom Madman specs. The great Christian LeBlanc
is hard at work polishing the 3D conversions.  These are "in-progress" previews
 cuz we luvs yas and trusts ya to appreciate watching the process/progress!
Watch this space for additional previews!


FRANK EINSTEIN! THE ONE! THE ONLY! THE ORIGINAL!

ESTABLISHED 1990!

My creation Frank Einstein has been with me for most of my life.  I remember as a kid thinking how clever I was putting those two names together ( I don't know if anyone is ever as clever as they think they are).  But it wasn't until 1990, when my career as a writer/artist officially began, that my humble creation became a published reality.  My pal Bernie Mireault and I got with Jeffrey Lang to create an anthology called CREATURES OF THE ID which contained three stories all pencilled by me, all inked by Bernie, and the first two stories written by Jeff. The third story was written by me, FRANK EINSTEIN in FOR THE RECORD.  This was lettered by my wife, Laura Allred.

Bernie and I collaborated on the wraparound cover.  I drew it up and Bernie painted it.
And so, this became the first official appearance of FRANK EINSTEIN.
But almost simultaneously my first issue of GRAFIK MUZIK was released.  This was my first full color book (THE EVERYMAN colored by Bernie for Marvel's Epic line would soon follow).  It was also my wife Laura's first foray into coloring comics.  This book continued the adventures of Frank Einstein, still two years away adapting his alter ego, The MADMAN of Snap City!
Many people are under the impression that this is Frank Einstein's first appearance. And it may have been at some comic shops. Shipping was a bit spotty back then and they were released just weeks apart.
