I have to thank my daughter Hannah for coming up with this name. Unlucky 13 is a sad sack who has been possessed by 13 evil spirits. They swirl around in him and vie for control over his body, for which few of them have little regard. Whichever one gets the upper hand can usually be seen residing in Unlucky's headspace.

This is the product of me trying to get used to brush pennin'. Less than 20 minutes, no pencil underneath, with some white pastel pencil on top.
There's been a lot of talk 'round the comic shop amongst employees about much cooler Robin could and should be. He's a 15 year-old who's been trained to kick ass by the toughest guy on the planet...would he really be so whitebread? Would he really be too nervous to kiss a girl, or be terrible at tennis? Nah, he'd be all "F that I just pwned Penguin--again." I don't think anyone over 40 should write his book unless he's named Grant Morrison (who nailed it in recent Batman issues). If I were an editor at DC, I'd pay Vasilis Lolos a great sum of money to redesign, write and draw Robin. Or Brandon Graham. Or Jim Rugg. Or Nate Bellegarde. Or Cory Walker.

This one was done yesterday (9/17), and it features several characters for a project ("Vestiges") that I've been gestating on for a while. The alien/eyeball fellow is not part of the book, just something at which the kids can stare agape. This here's just the raw b/w ink, now I go to color. I'm going to mess around with layers a bit and see if I can get a nice underpainting feel. Wish me luck!

Last post today, for real. I just wanted to get some stuff up here. Here in RVA we're working on a Jam comic. The premise? One guy (me) threw a panel down on a piece of paper, which got handed to the next guy (Rob Ullman). He then comes up with the next panel, and it keeps getting pushed forward with the next guy not knowing what's coming before him. We're into page 4 now, so I figure it's safe to put up pages 1, 2 and 3. It's become so beautifully random I don't think there's any way a potential contributor would be spoiled on the rules by seeing the earliest stuff.
Anyway, here are the first 3 pages with a list of contributors:
Panel One: Patrick Godfrey
Panel Two: Rob Ullman
Panel Three: Tim Sinclair
Panel One: Rawn Gandy
Panel Two: Meagan Olson
Panel Three: John Ownby
Panel One: Kerry Talbott
Panel Two/Three: Jim Callahan
Panel Four (Inset): Patrick Godfrey again
CLEATUS is a good ole' boy. He drinks PBR, thinks Travis Tritt and Dwight Yoakum are the most important musical figures of the 20th century, and likes to go rootin' when he's not using his razor-sharp cleat-boots to beat the snot out of people for the highest bidder. More on him later.
My name is Patrick Godfrey. I own Velocity Comics in Richmond, VA. I also publish comics through Oddgod Press. This blog will just be a spot to get some of my scribblings out there for the world to puzzle over. Mostly I'm thinking I'll post goofy super hero ideas, sketches, and process work for any forthcoming comic-y type work. Ideally it'll help keep me getting stuff done. For starters, here's a fella by the name of RUBBERNECKER. His powers? He can stretch his neck. Into ANYTHING! He probably sounds pretty weird when he talks.
