Broke 100!


Broke 100!

Hey guy's I'm back in town and first thing I wanna say is, WOW! Our most recent Iron Chef challenge went off with a bang! I knew it would from the first time I approached these two monkeys. We actually broke 100 comments on one post! Pretty cool! The next challenge will be providing challengers as interesting as this one. Already have one in the works for Carlos, and myself. Heck we may even have a potential bigger challenger for Jim. Also Look for a all Iron Chef battle as us four Mettistas team up for an all out slugfest!!!

Once again I'd like to thank both Jim and Jeff! For mine I can't say who's I like more. I love Jim's for the sheer amount of stuff he was able to do, however working with Jim I know how he did it, and expected no less. I knew from the minute that it was going to be a scene with multiple characters that Jim would have the upper hand, not only on Jeff, but just about every other artist in comics. I have always been a fan of Jeff's ability to capture energy with so few lines, and pull off amazing gesturing and personality. He delivered here! His Wolvie looks so cool, I wish we could see more of it! Like I said earlier had this not been a multiple character thing, and it was just a single character? I don't know? I think the tables may have turned! Either way it was awesome to feel like a fan again! I enjoyed and anticipated this with every ounce of my being. It's cool to see these things come together, and honestly all for a good cause! I'm hoping that not only these, but all the past works of art, all created by todays top talents, can really help the CBLDF!

With that I leave you a picture of me buying some chinese food goodies from my fav place back home. If you ever find yourself in downtown Napa,there's a little hole in the wall place I grew up going to called Asia Cafe, I definitly suggest trying it out, it's delicioso!

"me lose brain?" PSHOO!PSHOO!

you guys got probably a billion hits from all the comic news sources. i bet when the headline went out Lee vs. Campbell; it was like that scene from the matrix when everybody went to see Neo fight Morpheus!

hahaha! there is nothing like this Iron Chef here! I would love it whenever somebody has a new book they want to promo to come on and take on the crew here!

DAG... can it get any bigger than Jeff?? Who's left? Art Adams? Marc Silvestri? woooo... that'd be hella tight! Props again to Ale for this ingenious new tradition.

Ey yo... I'm definitely not hatin' on the hole-in-the-walls. I'll check out that Asia Cafe joint next time I'm around the Outlets. Haven't had Chinese in a while. When I'm in the V, I usually mooch off my 'rents cookin' or get my grub on @ L&L Hawaiian BBQ or Hawaiian Drive-Inn. If my folks don't fire up the rice cooker and I'm feenin' for Filipino food, Max's is the way to go (the plaza @ Sonoma Blvd. and Redwood St., y'all). "It's like a-good there" haha...

Peace...

No diss on Jeff but there are plenty of people out there who Jim woul be able to knuckle up with and sweat a lil' bit. Silvestri would be cool but he's from the same school of cross hatching as Jim. My money would be on the challenger if you were to get someone like Angel Medina or Reis.

Bring on Steve McNiven!

Ivan Reis vs. Jim Lee? lol... *scratches head*

I'd actually like to see Ale go up against Ivan.

Peace...

Victor said...

Yeah, bring on Ivan Reis!

i think it'd probably be fair only if Jim took on either a:

• Image Co-Founder (Larsen, McFarlane, Silvestri)
• Current Master Creator like Frank MIller or Joe Quesada or Alex Ross
• Comics great like Walter Simonson or Byrne
