Jack (KING) Kirby’s 95th Birthday
Well, those of you that know me will by now know that Jack Kirby was a massive influence on my becoming a comic creator and so like most years here is a commemorative Blog to celebrate what would have been his 95th Birthday.
As I worked on the pencils for Worlds End Volume 2 and the Worlds End colouring book today I thought about Jack's work a lot.
The master universe creator in the comic book form, who knows what wonders he would be creating today with the advent of the digital age?
I would like to share a little video created by his youngest Granddaughter, Jillian. Simply click on the picture to be redirected to YouTube to view the video.
Please feel free to pass on the message and give her your support.
All that remains is to raise a glass to the heavens, this bright sunny evening (somewhat of a rarity this year in this neck of the woods) and to say thanks for all the wonderful stories and art once again, Jack and I hope you are having a VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY, in which ever universe you are looking down from.
Until next time, have fun!

The second instalment of the hit graphic novel series
Well, it’s been a while since anything new appeared on this little Blog of mine regarding the graphic novel series, so here is a first look at the second page from the second book.
There will be other pages and updates from A Hard Reign’s Gonna Fall as there were for the first volume The Riders on the Storm from time to time to give you guys a flavour of this new volume.
I look forward to hearing back from you guys to ascertain your verdict on my latest work.
There will be large format versions of the pencil artwork on the Worlds End Website soon for you to check out too and you can see new information on the Wizards Keep Website, as well as regular updates via our Twitter accounts (My Tweats and Bentley's have direct links from here on the side bar of the Blog - Gweldar has his own link on the Worlds End Homepage).
Eventually there will be painted, colour versions of the pages up here to peruse too.
And if your bag includes the words to the stories you can always check out the Arcanum page on the Worlds End Website to read an on-going series of prose stories – All set on Gaeyrth of course. The first of these is entitled, "The Tar Monster of Khemis Treesett."
And for those of you wondering, yes, Bentley is here in the studio helping out with the chores once again...
Until next time, have fun!August 22nd 2012
