Happy New Year 2013!!! // artwork by Charles M. Schulz (2012)
An unconventionality I know, you guys are accustomed to seeing just superheroes in this blog. But one of the guys at Marvel or DC wouldn’t have let me express how much I wish you all guys the best for the new year, while Snoopy… well you can’t have it wrong with this little guy and his gang. I hope you guys find the strength to do whatever you set your minds into. I hope all of you have the best 2013 possible. They tell me it’s already New Year in Australia and Hong Kong so I share that party with you guys as well!

I’ve added links in the main page to some features I’ve doing regularly. If notes are any indication they have been very well received by you guys. So far we have:
- Artist Highlight: For my ramblings about certain artist or to just plain showcase their work in a wide display, be they seasoned pros or amateurs.
- Action Figures: To show some of the greatest action figures out there right now.
- Cover Gallery: To display some of the greatest covers of some of the most well received series in mainstream comics.
Got anything to say to help me out improve these features? have suggestion for new ones? hit me up in my ask box! I’m always open to opinions, requests or just if you want to show some love!
Artist Highlight - Special Edition: Oliver Nome (2012)
Hello to you guys, so far in all the time I’ve been running Comics Forever I keep to myself since this is a place where most of you come for the beautiful art and to read the few words I have to say about the ocassional comic or movie. Today however I’m tackling something far more serius and I need you guys to please help me out with this so read on.
Oliver Nome is an amazing artist, don’t take my word for it, just look at the powerful and expressive artwork I’ve posted with these words, this is one of the few guys I’ve run across the internet whose talent speak for itself. He’s a freelance artist for Aspen and DC comics, and he’s been struck by illness. This man, this incredibly talented guy has been diagnosed with a brain tumor and he needs our help, please go to this link and chip-in with whatever you can to help him out. The sad true is that this guy needs money so he can get proper medical service, so he can live and pencil more amazing comic books for us.
Please let’s do some good for Oliver, I’m pretty sure most of you would want to see more artwork from him. Go here and look at the bottom of your wallet. I’m sure Oliver and his family will be very thankful to you guys.
You can contribute to Comics Forever!!!
Using this little link here you submit anything, from artwork to reviews and comic-related links over the ‘net!
Now please be mindful of a couple of things before sending me tons of stuff:
For Comic Art:
- Please send clean artwork, I don’t post watermarked art of any kind!
- Let me know who is the artist! (giving proper credit is a must!) or if you are an artist yourself, send me the proper links to your site (tumblr, devianart account, blogspot etc.)
- I only do Superheroes on this blog (and derivatives like the occasional Science Fiction, Videogame or Anime stuff), so please keep that in mind before sending me your awesome art about something totally unrelated.
- Keep it clean! I know I post a lot of comic ladies here, but I don’t post nudes or sex stuff. There’s plenty of that here on tumblr anyway.
For Comic Reviews:
For the love of god, stay away of reviews like this:
- Keep it simple: 3 paragraphs of about 7 to 10 lines explaining the most positive things you did see in the comic in question regarding writing, story, and art. Why no room for negative stuff you ask? because why the hell would I tell you to read a bad comic?
For Movies and TV Shows:
- Very much like above, you explain why whatever you watched is so great in 3 paragraphs of about 7 to 10 lines explaining the most positive things you did see in the movie (or series) in question regarding writing, story, visuals and casting. I’ve already reviewed a lot of Comic Movies, but there are some out there that I haven’t touched, feel free to take a crack at them so I’ll know if we see eye to eye!
For Music and Videos:
- I post music for your ears here from time to time, If you want to share a song (or a video, or a AMV…) that you believe is great, the only requisite I ask is that it must be related to comic lore or gaming related stuff, what does this mean specifically? well you can submit that great Soundgarden song if it belongs to a Comic Movie Soundtrack!
That’s about it for now folks, if you have any question please go to my askbox! I’ll always reply privately!
P.s: Please check these guys out, they are my greatest supporters and Comics Forever wouldn’t exist without the great push these guys have given me!
