Off the Workbench: Funko Pop! Netflix Daredevil Custom

marvel daredevil funko pop

After we signed up for Netflix and binge-watched Marvel’s Daredevil – which, in my opinion, is the best superhero television series out there, and the best thing to come out of the Marvel Cinematic Universe so far – I was inspired to work on a Funko Pop! figure based on his “final” costume. Unfortunately, since it only shows up late […]

DC Comics Super Heroes

Admit it: Dressing up as your favorite fictional character was part of your bucket list at some point. Most likely, it was part of your bucket list even BEFORE you knew what a bucket list was. Come on, who didn’t tie a small blanket (or bimpo) around their neck as a child, pretending to be impervious to bullets, bombs, and their […]

Off the Workbench: Mighty Muggs Miles Morales (Ultimate Spider-Man) Custom

Last year, I got so excited about Spider-Verse that I came up with a plan: To create custom Mighty Muggs of every single Spider-Man making an appearance in that story. Unfortunately, I only managed to finish four before life got in the way (as it typically does). The first one I made was of my favorite Spider-Man (alongside Peter, of […]

Off the Workbench: Funko Pop! Juggernaut Custom

I was recently contacted by a friend/client. He wanted me to customize a blank Funko Pop! figure into mega-popular X-Men foe Juggernaut. Between this and a couple of Mighty Muggs commissions, it looks like the ol’ figure-making business is officially up and running again. Juggernaut started life as a blank Funko Pop! figure. The details were sculpted on the figure using WaterStop […]

My thoughts on the “Fantastic Four” (2015) trailer

fantastic four human torch thing mr. fantastic invisible woman

After many months of rumors (from BleedingC- er, Latino R-, uh, entertainment websites), premature hatred (from rabid Fantastic Four fans – wait, there are Fantastic Four fans?), and me silently snickering at the fact that Fox went against decades of comic book history just to turn a man who can set himself on fire black (because I truly am a horrible person), the […]

(Hooray for my first post in 2015!) Last year, I began working on a project that involved repainting these little vinyl collectibles called Mighty Muggs. It was supposed to be my way of celebrating the much-hyped “Spider-Verse” story arc in the Dan Slott-penned Amazing Spider-Man ongoing series, which promised to unite EVERY. SPIDER-MAN. EVER against a family of interdimensional energy vampires with a […]

5 Comic Book Villains Too Disturbing for Movies

In the colorful world of comic book adventures, you’re only really as good as your villains, and superhero movies are no exception. Case in point: Spider-Man tangled with the Green Goblin, Doc Ock, Sandman, Venom, the Lizard, and Electro, Batman had to butt heads with the likes of the Joker, Catwoman, Two-Face, Scarecrow, Bane, and Ra’s al-Ghul, and Superman’s enemies include Lex […]

GEEK TOOTH: Uno Morato – Geeks, Grub, and Gaming (and Galactus, Too!)

A little over a year ago, I was hooked on HeroClix. So hooked, in fact, that I wrote an article about it over at FlipGeeks (click here). At the time, I had a regular gig drawing comic strips for a…really rich client. Me being the conscientious and responsible young man I was, I promptly blew about half of my total […]
