I had the pleasure of tabling next to golden age Marvel and Atlas comics artist Vic Carrabotta at Soda City Comic Con this last weekend. He had great stories, including Jack Kirby hiring Vic, even though he didn’t like Vic’s art that much, because Vic’s wife was pregnant at the time. He really liked my work and even let me ink this sketch of his. He’s 87 and still drawing – I hope I can say the same at his age.
My buddy Mike became one with the force on 8-21-2016. I’ve been holding on to this blank cover for a while, he asked me to do a sketch of Vader and then let him know how much he owed me. I thought this might be a better tribute, I plan on donating it to Threshold Theatre, in Charleston. Mike was the Technical director there, and always had a smile on his face. You’ll be missed, buddy!
