Bob and Ms. Inkwell on Static Rift Podcast March 6 Print E-mail
Written by Bob Almond   
Tuesday, 28 February 2017 23:40

For those interested, I am scheduled to be interviewed alongside my Inkwell Awards spokesmodel Hailey Skaza-Gagne as Ms. Inkwell on the Static Rift Podcast (Facebook) Monday March 6. The show starts at 6pm EST but I believe we come on at 6:30. We'll be talking about my career and my organization. Their latest Twitter promo says "No show today we'll be back next week to interview legendary comic inker & founder of @InkwellAwards @almondink & his spokesmodel Ms Inkwell."

 

UPDATE: here's the direct link to the show interview.

AT LAST! THE ANSWER! Print E-mail
Written by Bob Almond   
Saturday, 28 January 2017 14:05

Those of you who follow my site's news know that there was some confusion about where Marvel was publishing the Black Panther variant cover that Sal Velluto and I recently were hired to do. On Tuesday January 24 it was listed in the online Marvel solicitations for April at Newsarama. I posted the following on my Facebook wall the next day, below, and they even spelled Sal's name properly this time:

 

To answer the oft-asked question about where/when that variant Black Panther cover by Sal Velluto,myself and Paul Mounts will be out, the answer is finally in the latest April solicitations for a 4/19 release: "BLACK PANTHER: WORLD OF WAKANDA #6
TA-NEHISI COATES & REMBERT BROWNE (W) • JOE BENNETT (A)
Cover by RAHZZAH
Variant Cover by SAL VELLUTO"

 

In other Black Panther news, I was surprised to see a third BP title from Marvel, BLACK PANTHER & THE CREW. (Yes, they are using the team that Priest created after his Black Panther series ended in 2003, but without Priest.)  I'm not working on it but this is the first time in Panther history that he's had more than one series let alone three. Ah, the wonders of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Those familar with my commission gallery are familar with prolific client and dear friend Michael Rankins. A voice actor in his day job (and successful gameshow contestant), Michael is a seasoned comic book art collector. He has a blog, "Swanshadow Thinks Out Loud", and he oftens devotes the end of the week with the column 'Comic Art Friday'. Yesterday he posted another celebrating me and my work ("A Drink of Ink"). I don't take this tribute lightly and always cherish the recognition. Thank you, Uncle Swan!

CORRECTION: Sal&Bob Black Panther variant cover Print E-mail
Written by Bob Almond   
Friday, 16 December 2016 00:03

For those interested: I was informed last week by my local New England Comics retailer (and longtime Inkwell Awards retailer affiliate) Nate Machado that the variant cover for BLACK PANTHER: WORLD OF WAKANDA#4 by Sal and myself was erroneously listed in the recent Marvel Previews catalog and online as being for that issue.  It is intended for another issue from either this series or the flagship title. Once I know for sure I will share that info here.

 
HANDBOOK HUNT! Marvel Fact Files: Black Panther Special Print E-mail
Written by Bob Almond   
Thursday, 15 December 2016 23:18

I haven't done this topic at the site for quite some time. But I used to make mention of reprinted art of mine appearing in Marvel's handbooks and other publications. One such magazine was the one that accompanies the Eaglemoss statues. In 2007 I picked up the 2006 Eaglemoss magazine The Classic Marvel Figurine Collection#30: Black Panther mentioned on this page in my archives.

I recently saw a solicitation for another BP-themed issue, now renamed, Marvel Fact Files: Black Panther Special (2016). I ordered it and recently picked it up and it had less of Sal & my work than the earlier

book. Besides a tiny cover image of Black Panther#27 (v. 3) and at the end a price guide showing the cover to BP#23 with Deadpool and the Avengers as being in high demand and low supply, it only had a couple of images from the center spread timeline shown here, one from BP#49 and 14.

However, while searching for the 2006 cover file, I discovered this: Marvel Fact Files#19:

Black Panther!

EM MFF 019  09040.1429386742.1280.1280

This one sports a Sal&Bob cover and I didn't know about it. Don't know the year. But I am asking my Facebook friends if anyone's seen it. If you have or know where I can get one, please email me at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

Written by Bob Almond   
Thursday, 01 December 2016 15:40

This is the verified and official list of conventions and events we'll be attending. I'll be traveling

with/setting up for the non-profit along with spokesmodel Ms. Inkwell Hailey Skaza-Gagne

(AKA Holly Black) at each stop unless it says otherwise. This is going to be a much busier than

usual year for us but besides our regular con supporters some new supportive shows are bringing

us out to new locations and that certainly helps with exposure. FCBD is pending for me.
