Even if you aren't a huge Simpsons fan, it is definitely worth checking out the various Radioactive Man comics from Bongo if you love comic books. The Simpsons has always been a comic friendly show, but the Radioactive Man comics are where the passion for the medium really comes out. They are chock full of references to classic characters, story lines, quotes and artistic styles from the comic books we all grew up loving. They are pretty darn funny as well! It's clear that the creators of these stories are huge fans of the genre.
This issue marks the end of an era for The Lost Issues. This will be the final cover created with MS Paint. Beginning tomorrow, all covers will be created with Photoshop. April 4 will mark the Three Year point for The Lost Issues and with over 850 covers, I am glad that I got the opportunity to show some of what was possible with a relatively simple program like Paint, even if many of the early attempts were pretty rough. It's time to move forward though, and Photoshop has rejuvenated me. I will caution against expecting any immediate leap in quality though - tomorrow's cover was literally created the day I downloaded PS. So please be patient as I go through my growing pains while learning the bells and whistles of this cool new tool.
As always, thanks for following and hopefully the best is yet to come!
