Young Allies 70th Anniversary Special #1. 2009.
Ink (with digital color) on Marvel board, 11 × 17.25″.
Written by Roger Stern

This page from Young Allies benefitted from the Google Earth app of 2009. The same feature is now available through my Chrome web browser with little fanfare. Even my phone boasts 3D maps now. I'm still waiting for my brain to upgrade. In a previous post, I showed how Street View aided me in drawing the streets of Paris. In the same post, I trumpeted my own appearance on 33rd St. in New York. Sadly, Google has since removed me from Street View (in front of Jim Hanley's Universe). They won't even let you "go down" that street anymore. I think it's a conspiracy.

Comic Book Trivia for today: What Eisner Award-winning inker has a birthday today? And is nominated for several Harveys? And gave me a Y chromosome?


  1. Happy birthday to your dad, man. You both work great together! Look at your art makes my days happier all the time. Give him a big rug!!

  2. Thanks! We'll celebrate this weekend.
