To Infinity and Beyond!

Here's the real "Batman Beyond," Buzz Lightyear and his "You gotta Superfriend in me" pal, Woody. Wouldn't this be a great action figure set! Did this with pencils, inks, and photoshop. Hope you like!

Surgery, Sleep, and Sketch Cards

Well, it's been a while since I've set these chunky digits on the old blogspot! I've not been around the blog because back in April I had surgery to remove another brain tumor. Third times the charm! The surgery went well, but the recovery time had me out of action and sleeping for the better part of 6 weeks. I'm doing much better now and trying to get my draw back on. Which brings me to this Shazam sketch card that I did a couple of weeks ago. I thought I'd put it on Ebay and see if I could make some fundage for the upcoming comic convention season, but to my dismay, this 2 piece sketch card treasure only went for 99 cents! Whoa-the ego goes down in flames. But...on the brighter side, the same buyer who bought this card waited until another of my sketch card auctions ended to buy that card too! That's what you call a return customer or in the biz, a FAN. Ego's stock going up! Who cares that he paid only 99 cents for the second card too.

Pics and Podcast from NCComicon

Finally got a chance to post some pictures of Dilemma Comics at last week's con. Also, thought I'd link up the podcast that Darryl Pierce made at the show. It just so happens that he got several pics of me doing some sketching towards the end of the cast! Here's the link:
Hope you dig!

NC Comicon Sketches

The NC Comicon will be here on Saturday, and I'm so excited about my first show being the guy on the other side of the table! I'll be promoting Dilemma Comics and the Mastersons, but I'm also gonna have sketches, color prints, and my brand new sketchbook! So, I thought I'd post a few of the sketches that I've been so feverishly working on the past couple of weeks. Hope you dig!

Dilemma Comics!

Okay, so here it goes. Hi, my name is Branson Ragan. I am the man behind the pencils and words of the brand new Dilemma Comics. My wife and I started Dilemma Comics as a way that I could get my very own Magnificent Mastersons book out and in the eye of the public.

As we were trying to come up with a name, it seemed as if every name was taken(there are so many studios!). We were just starting and already in some kind of dilemma. Since I tease my oldest daughter about her name being Emma Dilemma, Dilemma Comics just seemed to fit.

Soon, I hope to have not only Mastersons #1 ready for print, but also other titles to join the Dilemma family of books. So get in on the ground level and begin to master the dilemma!

Oh, did I mention I'll be at a small press table at the NCComicon? It will be my very first con "behind the table"-Ohh yeah! I'm uber excited about the opportunity. I put together a few prints, sketches, and even a pretty sweet sketch book to sell. Just got my Mastersons promotional stuff in the mail, and I think I'm 'bout ready for the big show! Hope to see you there!

Dilemma Comics will be at the small press tables at the NCComiccon on March 13th.[link]
