“Colleen and her sister, Janine, grew up reading coverless comics that her grandmother salvaged from her job at the neighborhood Five & Dime. Archie Andrews and Richie Rich taught her to read, and Dan DeCarlo and Harvey Comics’ artists like Warren Kremer, Ernie Colon and Sid Couchey introduced her to the wondrous effect of sharp, clean lines on the comic page.”
“On any given day, you will find a majority of the 11 artist members bent over their drawing boards, conjuring the worlds of Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Catwoman and the Fantastic Four, among others.
It’s a colorful, riotous place that seems a bit like a comic book universe itself, where shelves groan beneath art reference books and model cars and stuffed piranhas, the stereo blares “Eaten by the Monster of Love,” and on a recent afternoon, one member was scanning photographs of his own face being ground into a carpet, so that he would have a photo reference for the latest fight scene he needed to draw.”
Inara Verzemnieks, writing about us in a big article this week that appeared in The Seattle Times and The Oregonian.
There were a bunch of great photos too, which aren’t on line. I’ll get them scanned in a bit.
