Two new books from hot rising superstar artists making their debut at MidOhio Con in just a few short days:
Allied Powers #2
Written by myself, art by Battlin’ Brent Bowman. Operation: Dynamo, armored Nazi goons, and superhero male bonding, all packed into 17 furious pages.
Big changes come to Mystery City.
In other news… family stuff may keep me away from PANEL meetings for the next several weeks, so I thought I’d throw some work-in-progress up here on the blog. Here’s (partially inked) pages 1 & 3 from The Second Part of the Secret History of the Ineffables, which picks up a couple months after the end of the previous chapter. The Ineffables are all dead save for Abe Lincoln, who has moved on to join Mystery City’s regular superhero team, the League of Protagonists– seen here as they confront their own Doctor Doom-style arch nemesis. Abe has trouble assimilating into the new team, however, because of his somewhat brutal methods…
Here I was going to post on this today, but Andy beat me to it… Nevertheless, I’ll post Sim’s paragraph on Political Science since I had to do some serious hunting to find it on his blog:
“THE INEFFABLES: POLITICAL SCIENCE trade paperback is by Craig Bogart, another member of the Panel Collective (Tom Williams helps out with the cover colour and Dara Naraghi does the lettering on “Political Asylum”). If you’re a) an atheistic secular humanist and b) a fan of early 60s Marvel Comics, this collection is for you. The Ineffables are Chet Burnett, a sometime journalist, Mason, a scientific genius animated Easter Island head, Clarity, a living piece of artwork, and the reincarnation of Abraham Lincoln (who joins in the course of the “Patriot Act” storyline). It really is extreme leftist/atheistic stuff but it’s very, very funny. Funny enough that I’ll forgive Craig for misappropriating a Republican President for his shenanigans!

I’ll admit that given what I know of his, er, political views I’m surprised he took to my satire so well. I figured Dirty Cop would be more up his alley.
