Skid Row Joe

Skid Row Joe
Last night that's who I found in the dirty part of town
Lost forgotten with no place to go
Tormented with a bitter taste outcast by the human race
A mask of torture was the face of Skid Row Joe.

He walked up to where I stood on the street
Said pardon me Mister now don't get me wrong I don't want your money
Though heaven knows I could use it
But you see this is my home and you see the other bar down the street
Well, that's my home too
I noticed you starin' at me a while ago, you recognized me didn't you
I said, yeah Joe, I know who you are
You was one time a real famous singing star, one of my favorites
He said, well, I guess you heard they took my babies away from me
I said, yeah Joe, I read about it in the papers
Then he turned his head away and I saw the tears fall in the place
And he turned to me and he said you know Mister
This is the only place in the world that I'm not ashamed to show my face
But I'm gonna quit, yes sir, I'm gonna quit
And I'm gonna shave and comb my hair and me a clean white shirt
Then I'm gonna walk up to her door
When she answers I'm gonna stand up real proud and tall
Then I'm gonna get on my knees
Then I'll say sweetheart if you'll take me back
I'll spend the rest of my life makin' up to you for what I've done
I'm so ashamed of myself and this I want you to know
Then I'm gonna take my two little babies
And I'm gonna hold 'em so close to me
I ain't gonna never let 'em go
I guess I should've told him then that she'd already remarried again
But after hearin' what he'd said to me
Why there wasn't no way I could add to his misery
So I said good luck my best to you Skid Row Joe..

Sugar on my tongue

I've been waiting years and years
Finally I see that you appear
My friends are here, and they ask of me
'Is this the time that we're gonna see
her put the sugar on your tongue'- Talking Heads, Sugar on my Tongue

Thor #112

Oh Thor, your movie will be coming out in a couple of weeks, without Jack Kirby's name on it. In honor of his great run of the book here's an issue that I read last night with your fight with the Hulk. Never seen this hidden gem, felt that I found a pot of gold when discovered. Thank ye gods that it was ink by Chic Stone and not Vince Colletta.

Dirty Boulevard

"Pedro lives out of the Wilshire Hotel
he looks out a window without glass
The walls are made of cardboard, newspapers on his feet
his father beats him 'cause he's too tired to beg" Lou Reed- Dirty Boulevard


"Oh, the city's alight with lovers and lies
And bright blue eyes.
Oh, the city is bright, it's brighter than day tonight.
(Surrender, surrender)
(Surrender, surrender)" U2-Surrender

Don't Give Up

No fight left or so it seems
I am a man whose dreams have all deserted
I’ve changed my face, I’ve changed my name
But no one wants you when you lose- Peter Gabriel, Don't Give Up

Maps and Legend

Maybe he's caught in the legend,
maybe he's caught in the mood.
Maybe these maps and legends
have been misunderstood, been misunderstood- Michael Stripe of REM

Here's a negative image of a Kafka dream in the graphic novel. Think I like it more than the actual panel.

Fantastic Four #70

Here's a panel of the Thing walking in New York sewer system trying to get rid the cops. I chuckle then wonder if British kids who read these reprints would think this is how they look like.

Rejected Panel

Couple more pages completed from the graphic novel this weekend, here's a panel that wasn't good enough for the final cut. I thought the boot was too stiff and the background was "meh".

Odd couple

Here's a panel from the second page of Fantastic Four #65, Thing and Johnny Storm awoke from the same nightmare. Question of the day, why are they sleeping in the same bed? Isn't there enough bedrooms in the Baxter Building that they don't need to share?
