Nathan the Caveman

image

Picked up this Nathan the Caveman by Ben Bishop this FCBD and finally sat down to read it tonight.
Great story. I don’t have the proper verbiage to describe it appropriately. I mean, really.

image

Great characters. Great feeling of them not just as two dimensional characters on paper. They could almost be friends or even a soft reflection of portions of my personal timeline, my life.

The artwork is awesome. I’m not going to post more, but if this in any way makes you want to read this… Track down Ben Bishop via Facebook or his site (bishart.net) and see if he has any copies left.

He is working on some new stuff and if I was personally rich and famous, I’d back all his work and have a house full of commissions.

Check out his TMNT #55RI cover (and prints) as well.

Post FCBD 2016

This morning I awoke 15 minutes before my 6am alarm went off. Bonus time for getting ready and getting out the door!

Managed to forgot my toll pass device but noticed before leaving the street… Picked up a folding chair to use while waiting before the shop opened…

Fast forward to about 7:45 am and I arrived at SHELLBACK ARTWORKS in Wells, Maine! To my surprise there was one out of state car already awaiting in the parking lot. Fast forward another half hour or so and the next three people arrived, friends from prior years!

image

Fast forward again to 11:30. We have all had multiple visits inside. The line outside isn’t very long and it was drizzling.

image

image

We all chatted, my cat got a new fan on her FB page and then it was almost time…

image

First trip inside for my pal so he got his photo taken with the guys. I had some books signed by all and Ben Bishop signed all the prints of his I snagged.

image

My pal Mikey was outside braving the cool misty rain! Where the line was short (almost no on outside after one trip through and i was 3rd or 4th person upstairs!) I decided to try getting a round two taken care of ASAP.

image

My TMNT messenger bag had already been signed by Steve and I was able to add Peter Laird and Eric Talbot today (and I had 3 items signed by them both on one trio! I feel special! Lol).

image

This is my 2009 (re)print of TMNT v1 collected edition which features the first 11 issues, micros series books and I think, the Fugitoid one shot. Again, all signatures where there before except Peter & Eric.

image

I had a TMNT #5 signed by Eastman & Lavigne that I’ve been holding onto for a while and decided now was a great time to have Peter sign it too so he did, inside with the others!

image

image

Ben Bishop signed his Nathan the Caveman sc novel for me. Can’t wait to read this.

I’m just going to post the prints and couple of sketches next. Getting late here and I’m beat.

Cowabunga!

These two books were an impulse buy… another friend (a few really) bought some and I thought, man I should have brought mine, but then picked these up real quick for round three…

And now, the prints…

That’s all I’ve got. Check out the Shellback Artworks FB page to see other fans pictures and cool items. If you missed out, I’m sorry… it was a wonderful time!!
