Congrats Mike, I'll be sure to go see if I can find a copy at lunch tomorrow. Really looking forward to the series.

Congrats Mike! Long time admirer, first time poster in here.

First thing I thought when seeing the cover was "Herobear goes human". But I think it's OK to rip-off yourself, heh. I can feel it'll be every inch as good as HB&K.

I don't live near any decent comic book stores so I hope I can get it somewhere online. I should be following your other blogs as well. Great stuff in there. Thanks!

Mike-

I can't say enough good things about The Magic of SHAZAM (although I sure tried over on my blog). You're the perfect guy to bring Cap to a new generation of readers, as well as older guys like me who prefer a Cap who's not lost in the shuffle of the regular DC multiverse.

Here's to a good long run on Magic of SHAZAM.

Hey!

I found the comic while browsing at my local comic book store and instantly recognized your fluid, dynamic and sketchy style.

So I grabbed it!!

Your art is such an inspiration to me.
Brilliant!

Hi Mike,

I just wanted to tell you that I loved the colored art to BBMOS #3, especially the first image. I cannot wait until Christmas Eve.

Hi Mike,

Just wanted to say that I loved BBMOS #3. I bought several copies to support your efforts. Can't wait for issue 4.
