Last year, I drew a cartoon for my buddy Josh Wigler as he worked vigorously to prepare for Comic-Con International in San Diego. Josh used that cartooned image of himself for his Twitter icon up until last week… when he asked me to doodle him up a new face to run alongside his tweets.

Rick Remender’s action-packed sci-fi comic Fear Agent is always good for a quotable. Series protagonist Heath Huston is often quoting Samuel Clemens within the book’s pages and he’s usually the man who ends up with the best lines as well.
