Tony Fleecs vs. The Internet!

Hey Y'all!

I know I just updated yesterday but all the sudden I have a couple more things to show. I'm all over the internet today, surprisingly. Here's what's happening.

My Hero Initiative Archie cover is up for auction on ebay today.
Archie Comics graciously created blank-covered editions of the landmark Archie #600 and gave them to The Hero Initiative to have stellar artists do ORIGINAL drawings on the cover. Each of these covers is an original, one-of-a-kind piece! Hero will be auctioning these off at the rate of 5-10 per week ’til we get thru all 57 covers available!

You are bidding on the original and AMAZING wraparound piece featuring the whole Riverdale gang from artist Tony Fleecs! This cover is drawn in pencil, ink,and marker and ya know what? It will also be the cover of the collected Archie book coming from Hero Initiative in January, 2011!
Go throw a bid on that if you've got some extra cash lying around.

This guy's just a fan of my sketchcard work and he has some incredibly nice things to say about me on his sketch card blog.
Tony Fleecs is a Phenomenon. His work is the equivalent of a theater-quality sound system blaring candy corn punk rock battery acid directly into your eyes.
I am actually blushing. Thanks, Rian!

And here's an interview I did a couple weeks back about the sketch cards.
What is your favorite character to draw?
I guess probably Spider-Man. He’s one of my favorites, and he’s fun. Also: Batman and Deadpool. A lot of times on the Marvel sets, I’ll tend to go obscure or draw characters’ old costumes a lot of the time just because I have weird favorite issues or characters. I love guys like Mojo and Puck from Alpha Flight. If I’m reading Runaways, I’ll draw all the Runaways. With so many cards to do, it’s nice to change things up after drawing, like, a hundred Wolverines or Caps.
Thanks for that, NonSportTrading.com!

Ok, I think that's it for now. I'll be back as soon as I have more to talk about. Thanks for stopping in. Have a merry Christmas and a happy new year.


  1. I loved your Howard the Duck card. And I'd do bad things to get Nextwave cards if you ever made them. Actually, in a couple of years when you start up commissions again, I might just get portraits of the team suitable for framin'.

  2. Thanks man!

    I'll make sure I do up some Nextwaves for this next set. That way they'll be out there on ebay if you get a wild hare.

  3. You forgot to mention the bomb ass JLAXXX interviews!

  4. I was the winner of your Hero Initiative Archie cover. I just received it today from CGC.

    It's a beautiful piece of artwork! Plus the Jughead marries a cheeseburger concept is great.

    Many thanks for producing such a great piece of art!

  5. Having just picked up the frankly adorable Cypher card you did for Marvel Universe, I'd like to say thank you for remembering the less famous characters!
