Official Facebook Gene Ha Visual Artist page
This is where I go to announce comics news and discuss comics
and generally be an online comics geek.
My Personal Facebook
This is where I do quick rants on politics, general culture,
and announcements of stuff in my personal life. If you want
news about my dog Nibbles, this is the place. Sorry, but unless
I know you in real life I probably can't accept you as a personal
Facebook Friend, I'm too close to Facebook's 5000 Friend limit.
It's a well known problem that successful comic book artists
don't have enough time to read all their favorite comics.
I do find the time to read some of these.
John Allison's head is a weird place. But it produces a funny
British horror and some excellent t-shirts. Seriously, I get
compliments when I wear the t-shirts.
If I were to start in comics today, I'd want to create something
like Dershing Helmer's The Meek. Really beautifully drawn
and colored and very personal. I'd assumed he came from an
animation background because of The Meek's fluid poses, accurate
by stylized anatomy and beautifully painted backgrounds. It
turns out that she is a biologist who learned
to draw and use Photoshop in her spare time. That blows my
"A comic strip about life at the movies." A brilliant
look at movies and geek culture today, from the POV of the
staff of a movie multiplex. The characters keep growing deeper
and more interesting. I can't stop reading this! Mondays and
When somebody wants to get out the ugly truth about the comics
world, they talk to Rich Johnston. Often scurrilous, usually

In addition to feverishly compiling who most everyone
in Top 10 was, he does the same for any other giant multi-character
bonanza he can find. It makes Alan Moore happy to know someone's
doing this. But it's more hard work than he'd like to imagine.
What I read while I eats my lunch.
What it says: "A Directory of Wonderful Things"
Girl, Red State
"Whenever you find that you are on the side
of the majority, it is time to reform." Mark Twain
If this blog was a political party I'd write BGRS on my voter
registration. A Navy brat married to an Air Force vet in a
Midwestern red state. Gives a great perspective on military
and political issues with a healthy dose of outrage.
TPM started off as political commentary and analysis from
one guy, Josh Marshall. But over time it's grown, and now
has reporters scouring DC and NYC and breaking their own stories.
With the catastrophic collapse in newspaper and cable news
political reporting, TPM has become invaluable.
There are two art dealers selling my older original pages.
If you're interested in any of my work since the Top 10 original
series, go to the store link above.
Great guy, great selection. Last I checked, he still had two
Captain America covers, a Superman, and a large selection
of Top 10 pages.
Another good place for my older stuff. He's got an Askani'son,
a Doctor Who, a JLA Gallery, and lots of Top 10!
