Yeah, I saw the group shot cover at Books-A-Million and passed it up. The single member issues have a featured article about the particular member on the cover.

All I gotta say is that while I do like the entire Monster album, my cherry picked songs are "All for the Love of Rock & Roll", "Outta This World", "Back to the Stone Age" & "Take Me Down Below" \m/ o.O \m/

I am glad that you only snuck in and looked and were nice enough to not take anything, I might have gotten upset if something was missing  ;D

I am sure I will, if I could find the KISS thread  ???

Okay folks, we are one week away from the premier of "The Walking Dead" season 2 and to get you ready the Inkwell Awards has put up a new auction containing several color prints by artist and co-creator Tony Moore and a photo of child star Chandler Riggs aka Carl Grimes of "The Walking Dead." So go over and take a look and be sure to bid!

The Inkwell Awards (http://www.inkwellawards.com/) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to promote and educate about the art form of comic book inking and to annually recognize and award the best ink artists and their work. Now entering their fifth year, the organization is overseen by a number of industry professionals such as founder & director Bob Almond, Jimmy Tournas, Daniel Best, Michael W. Kellar and Stacey Aragon who make up the IA core committee and Adam Hughes, Mike Marts, Ethan Van Sciver, Mark Brooks, Sal Velluto, Mike McKone, Trevor Von Eeden, J.

After an astounding premier live awards ceremony at Heroes Con on June 4-6,  the non-profit Inkwell Awards is gearing up for their fifth season of recognizing inking excellence in the comic book community and promoting the art form.  One highlight is the recruitment of additional star talent to the roster of Inkwell Ambassadors, a role that adds exposure and credibility to the organization and it's mission.  Two of the three additions from their 2011 Inkwell tour stop at Pittsburgh Comicon are artists Phil Jimenez and Eric Basuldua.

Artist Phil Jimenez is known for his work as a writer and penciler, often inking his own pencil work, and has a reputation for utilizing meticulous detail in his art.  First hired at DC in 1991, his career has propelled him to notable runs on series such as Wonder Woman, The Invisibles, Team Titans, Tempest, and event projects like War of the Gods, 52 and Infinite Crisis.  For Marvel he produced fan-favorite art for Amazing Spider-Man, Astonishing X-Men and New X-Men among others. In addition to his comic book work Phil also teaches life drawing at the School of Visual Arts on New York City.

Eric Basaldua (AKA Ebas) developed a fan-following from his early work at Top Cow Productions for Marc Silvestri.  Adroit at both penciling and inking, his work has appeared for publishers as diverse as Marvel, Zenescope, Dynamite and DC, and he is well known as a cover artist for properties as Red Sonja, Vampirella, Witchblade, Tomb Raider, The Darkness, Magdalena, Grimm Fairy Tales, and many more.  Eric's good girl and erotic art has grown in demand among the art collecting community.

And after some correspondence between Bob Almond and living legend Joe Kubert last week, Joe wrote back accepting an invitation for the role of newest ambassador for the advocacy.  "The realization that this master of the art form since the golden-age has just joined the team is just too much for me to absorb" said Inkwell director and founder Bob Almond, "it's truly a dream come true!"

Joe Kubert has worked in comics since the beginning of the business. In his seventy-plus years of working in the medium he has produced countless stories for countless characters, including DC Comics' Hawkman, Tarzan, Enemy Ace, Sgt Rock, Batman and the Flash as well as his own characters: the heroic caveman, Tor, and Abraham Stone.  His list of accomplishments is lengthy. A quick rundown: penciler, inker, letterer, colorist, one of the creators of 3-D comic books, newspaper strip cartoonist, school founder and teacher, correspondence course developer, author, artist and editor.  Joe Kubert lives and works in New Jersey. The Kubert School website link is: The Kubert School

Last June Cully Hamner was added to the ambassador line-up that includes Adam Hughes, Mike Marts, Ethan Van Sciver, Mark Brooks, Mike McKone, Sal Velluto, Trevor Von Eeden, and J. David Spurlock (Ambassadors | Inkwell Awards).

Some recent developments from the Inkwell Awards include resuming their fundraising auctions on eBay this fall (http://www.ebay.com/sch/merchant/theinkwellawards), they initiated the successful 2nd Joe Sinnott Inking Challenge by inviting ink artists to participate, they're polishing up and further developing their revamped website with all of the resources from the old site, and they just sent out invitations for the next Nomination Committee.

"I got jammed up this summer with work assignments but since then, for preventive maintenance, we've been trying to delegate various operational duties to the team so things won't get held up again", said Bob Almond.  "We have the Joe Sinnott Inking Challenge Gallery book going to print this fall, collecting the contributions of several ink artists over the blue-line pencil art of Joe such as Terry Austin, Mike Allred, Joe Rubenstein, Klaus Janson, Bob McLeod, Ernie Chan, Pablo Marcos, Dan Parsons, Jay Leisten, Mark McKenna and many more.  And this year's Challenge should be just as popular, allowing us to further educate about the craft and raise funds from the donated pieces.  And we have the Ms. Inkwell Gallery book in the works, collecting renditions by the artist community of our attractive spokesmodel, again, to raise funds for our charity, all allowing us to continue operations, afford various related expenses, and maintaining our philanthropic efforts such as our COMPliments Program which supplies our Hall of Fame recipients with comps of their work and the Dave Simons Inkwell Memorial Scholarship Fund at the Joe Kubert School of Cartoon & Graphic Art."

The 2012 Inkwell Awards ballot is scheduled to go online in April with the actual awards ceremony to be held at Heroes Con on June 22-24, 2012.
