Mooney!



Me inking the great Silver Age artist Marvel and DC penciller Jim Mooney, from around 2003...

Still not happy with Lori's face...

Lori's a little wonky, si - but Supes looks great! Was this for that Aussie writer who was working on the book about Jim?

It was indeed for me (the Aussie writer) who was working on the long finished but apparently totally unable to be published Mooney bio. I've lost track of the amount of publishers who've seen the manuscript and never gotten back to me. I've signed three contracts and each time the contracts have expired without a hint of the book being worked on by the publishers. I've re-written it several times to suit various editors tastes but nothing. One publisher was at least honest in saying that now that Mooney has passed away he doubts anyone will buy it. Same guy passed on my Andru & Esposito book for the very same reasons...but keeps pumping out stuff on other deceased artists. Go figure.

One day it'll be published. In the meantime I have posted a few chapters up on my site.

And I adore the Mooney/Bigley.
