Jay and Miles Try to Draw and Cyclops Has a Good Day at ECCC 2016!

WOOHOO IT’S SKETCH ROUND-UP TIME!

We do bad X-Men drawings for $1 at cons (although we might end up raising the price, because we spent a somewhat ridiculous amount of time on these). Here’s most of what we did at ECCC, minus a few that we forgot to photograph:

David drew a lot of really beautiful sketches and commissions, but for some reason, this is the only one we actually have a photo of:

And here are the newest additions to Jay’s Cyclops Has a Good Day sketchbook (the downside of working shows = very little time to run around and get commissions and sketches, alas!):

 

August 2015 Shirt of the Month: X-Gamers

shirt

Who needs a Danger Room when you can hone your battlefield skills AND rack up EXP against a Beholder? The X-Men gather ‘round the gaming table for some all-new, all-different training in August’s shirt of the month, featuring art by David Wynne!

the game transparency

 

In addition to covering your torso and impressing your friends and neighbors, the August, 2015 shirt of the months grants +1 on continuity-related checks.* It’s available on a wide variety of wearables, including kids’ clothes; as well as tote bags, travel mugs, and stickers!

NOTE: This is a limited-run shirt! It will DISAPPEAR FOREVER from the shop on September 1, 2015; get ’em while they last!

*Results not guaranteed in actual gameplay. Always run house rules by your GM. Not recommended for use against gazebos.

ICYMI – David Wynne’s Full Mutant Massacre Illustration!

NOTE: We are moving this month and thus behind on EVERYTHING, so this is going up way later than we intended (and so, probably, will everything else through the second week of August or so). Sorry! -R&M

Did you see David Wynne’s rad illustrations for the last two episodes? Did they strike you as perhaps… more closely related than usual?

1_mutant massacre part 1

From Episode 65…

...and Episode 67!

…and Episode 66!

That’s because they’re two halves of a super kickass MUTANT MASSACRE PANORAMA! We knew this was going to be our first two-part episode, so we asked David if he’d be up for doing an extra-elaborate two-part illustration, and BOY, DID HE. Check this out:

The whole enchilada! Prints are available until 7/26/2015 in the shop, or contact David for the original.

Rachel & Miles Review the X-Men, Episode 46

Week of July 15, 2015

In which Apocalypse has always been pretty silly; Cyclops is probably not actually the ‘bad boy’ of the X-Men; Years of Future Past continues to rock; and a lot of Wolverines fight.

REVIEWED:

  • X-Men: Apocalypse character reveals (00:20)
  • *Years of Future Past #3 (3:04)
  • Secret Wars: Battleworld #3 (07:32)

*Pick of the week (10:05)

April 2015 T-Shirt & Leggings of the Month: Demon Bear

Because you demanded* it: THE DEMON BEAR SHIRT!

Art by David Wynne!

Art by David Wynne!

When David Wynne’s gorgeous Demon Bear illustration went up with Episode 32, a lot of you asked when you’d see it on a t-shirt. We are happy to announce that your wait is over: the Demon Bear is officially April’s t-shirt of the month!

But that’s not all: we’re also doing a limited run of Demon Bear leggings! Do YOU want to wrap your entire body in a nightmare creature from dimensions beyond human ken?** CONGRATULATIONS. NOW YOU CAN.

demonbear_leggings

Demon Bear t-shirts and leggings will be available until May 1, 2015, then disappear forever. (Travel mugs will of course continue to stick around for as long as they remain hilarious.)

*Actually, you have been asking very politely for a very long time now. We appreciate that.

**Before someone asks: We did in fact try to do a Screaming Bear Crotch variant, but alas, it did not work out with the placement of the seams on Redbubble leggings.

March 2015 T-Shirt of the Month: What’s New Shadowcat?

Saving the world is all well and good, but Kitty Pryde knows what superheroism is REALLY about: the costumes!

What's New Shadowcat

This month, we’re celebrating Kitty’s myriad and multiversal superthreads with David Wynne’s fantastic homage to the classic Frazetta What’s New Pussycat? poster, featuring a whopping seven of Kitty’s signature looks over the years. For bonus mileage, go meta and incorporate it into your own superhero costume—or use the matching mugs to get you through the Kitty’s Costumes drinking game next time you marathon the Rachel and Miles X-Plain the X-Men archives!

What’s New Shadowcat? shirts will be available until April 1, then disappear forever (mugs, tote bags, and/or throw pillows may persevere longer). David also has the original art for sale over here!
