So while it’s late on the calendar I wanted to remind folks that I’ll be attending the Terrificon at the Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, CT on July 28-30 for the 7th appearance I’ll […]

The following was posted on Bob’s Facebook feed 7/8/23: “TERRIFICON UPDATE: I am now accepting advance requests for a limited amount of commissions with my long-time art partner, Sal Velluto.

On my Facebook feed I have been posting about the status of this collection which I am more passionate about in this format than others I’ve had. It was rescheduled once or twice and finally arrived last week only to be damaged and returned as I waited for the proper edition I ordered. Here’s my post: “I […]
I was ecstatic yesterday to finally receive my comp copy to the Bernie Wrightson Artwork: A Tribute HC Book by Steve Niles & Shannon Eric Denton at Printed in Blood and Monster Forge Productions. At 244 pages it’s a beast of a love letter with written and rendered tributes from over 200 creators to everyone’s […]
No, I haven’t had a chance to see it yet. Sal Velluto & I didn’t make the BLACK PANTHER: WAKANDA FOREVER LA World Premiere invitation list this time but thanks to the camera pic of my long-time friend Craig Rousseau at the Thursday late-night showing, we, along with the brilliantly talented friend & partner Christopher Priest, certainly and thankfully made the Special Thanks […]
From my Facebook feed: FYI for those awaiting the Black Panther By Christopher Priest Omnibus Vol. 1 like I am, it’s been delayed twice now. It was originally scheduled for release in September and got pushed back to November 9 to release with The film BLACK PANTHER: WAKANDA FOREVER but my local retailer just informed me […]

In an 11th hour development Bob and the Inkwell Awards were recently invited to the 4th SYRACUSE NEW YORK COMIC CON on Saturday December 7! It’s a new venue for us and only a one-day show. But the Inkwells will have senior contributor Mike Prast to help cover the booth and they’ll be introducing the latest, new Ms. Inkwell spokesmodel […]
From my photo album on Facebook: “I knew the book was being released this month (for Black History month, probably) but I didn’t expect to have a comped copy appear in the mail through Diamond Distributions. I’m hoping my pals Sal Velluto, Don McGregor and Priest got one each. I’m guessing maybe it was sent by Marvel […]
