Oh, My Stars and Garters.

Here's the other Marvel/Upper Deck trading card I painted last year–Hank McCoy, aka the Beast. I'm actually a fan of the current, more leonine appearance of Dr. McCoy. To be specific, I am a fan of said leonine Beast as written by Joss Whedon and drawn by John Cassaday in Astonishing X-Men. But Upper Deck had their reasons for wanting the old simian/Sasquatch look, so I relented.

Hey Adam, Great blog! Amazing work you have here. I like the Frankenstein paintings.

Dear Mr. Rex,

The other day my sons ran up from the basement, screaming, "Mom! Mom! The scariest thing ever is in the basement right now!" I asked, "What is it?" and they said, "Mr. Henderson, Mom. Mr. Henderson!!!"

Thank you for our favorite bedtime monster stories,
Colleen Cook

Thanks, Shawn and Colleen!
For those who are wondering what Ms. Cook is talking about, check out the story "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Henderson" from my book, FRANKENSTEIN MAKES A SANDWICH.

Hello, Adam! I totally agree with your opinions about the Beast and the X-men - it's like they've finally come home when mr. Whedon is writing them. That said - magnificent painting!

samuli s.–Whedon got me to buy an X-book for the first time in years. I read and enjoyed all of Grant Morrison's run, but only because I took unfair advantage of bookstore cafes. Saying they've "come home" is a good way of putting it.
