  1. Can we get a Don Draper comic now!  Skottie great as always.

  2. I look forward to this just for another Francis Francavilla sketch. WOW he is amazing.

  3. When did Portacio become that good? I wasn’t a big fan of his art back on WetWorks, but anything I’ve seen from him lately looks really good to great, like Chewbacca here.

  4. Simpsons Omar. . .Chewbacca with a machine gun.. .there are no words.

  5. @ ohcaroline: I’d say thats his trademark Bowcaster, not a machine gun.

  6. I. . .don’t know what that means.

    But i believe you!

  7. yup thats a bowcaster. the globes on the sides give it away.

  8. You want to make a useful comment, please do. If you want to troll in the guise of a useful comment, you’ll get deleted.

  9. Wow those first 4 sketches are all so fantastic! Especially that District 9 one, if there wasn’t a title I would ‘ve thought that it was something to do with Man-Thing, or whatever, lol.

  10. Chewbacca and District 9 top the bunch.

  11. @Bendrix – I completely agree – Portacio has just grown leaps and bounds in the last few years. That’s probably one of the best Chewbacca drawings I’ve seen in a long, long time.

    And Skottie Young’s sketch almost makes me want to be a father. Almost.

  12. I would like to see Chewie drawn with a mini-gun or Tommy gun in a similar pose

  13. I’m usually not a fan of Portacio’s work, but I gotta say that the Chewbacca is pretty rad. 

  14. The Skottie Young pic kinda makes me think of Josh and Ollie, though I’m sure it’s coincidence.  Very cute.  

    But for me it’s the Portacio sketch that impresses me the most this week.  I agree that Whilce has come a long way since his early X-Men days when I first noticed his work.  Wasn’t he out of commission for a while some years back due to illness?  Glad to see him back.

    Samnee’s work is impressive as always with his masterful use of light and shadow.

    And Francavilla’s sense of design is utterly amazing. I can’t count how many times I’ve stared at a blank piece of paper with no idea how to begin.  This guy has got some serious sprezzatura happening and I bow to his genius.  Frank’s one to watch…

  15. Skottie and I both had wee blond sons within a few months of each other, so yeah, there is that.  He’s my internet daddy soul brother.

  16. Don Draper kinda looks like a drunk and angry Sterling Archer

  17. That is a bad-ass wookie.

    Portacio’s isn’t bad either. 

  18. y is robin smiling like that…?

  19. The intrinisic joy of mud?

  20. I love Francesco Francavilla but I don’t know if i’ve ever seen him do something that awesome.

  21. Chewie’s fantastic.  What a beautific sketch!!!

  22. He’s a young Robin number one. It was always fun for him.

    I love the Skottie Young my favorite of the week 

  23. That Whilce Portacio Chewbacca is f’ing awesome! That may be the best thing he’s ever drawn. Love the Don Draper too!

  24. District 9 hands down…
