WHAT A CARVE UP!!!

Craig beginning to excavate the head of his pumpkin...hmmm... those wings look familiar....

...the completed Captain America pumpkinhead! A truly amazing piece of pumpkin carving ...


... highlighted superbly when the night creeped in and the candles were lit.


A mightily heroic Batman with his own pumpkin .

5

So, recently, AgentM - over on the Marvel Blogs - has been asking creators and editorial for their Top Five Lists and has posted my Top Five Records. Of course, this changes daily depending on what kind of mood you find me in but I can safely say that the five listed remain constantly within my favourite 20. What are yours?

"Mike Perkins's Desert Island Top 5 Records 2008-10-21 16:15:50

I'm back! I have a bunch of responses in the bag, so I'll try and put a few entries in the can and post 'em over the next few days.

Woo!So, yeah. Mike Perkins is awesome. He started my official Marvel sketchbook with a kickass Wolverine piece, tells totally funny and great stories and draws the hell outta everything he touches. Also, he says "record" instead of CD. I do that as well and it just sounds right to me.

Top 5 Records:

"Purple Rain" by Prince
"O" by Damien Rice
"Forty Licks" by The Rolling Stones
"How Can I Sleep With Your Voice In My Head?" by A-Ha
"To Tu To Tam" by Grzegorz Turnau

Check out Mike's blog for your daily taste of Perkins.Wait...that doesn't sound right... "

TGIF


When James Brown sang, "It's a Man's World," clearly he had never visited the Marvel Universe.Since Sue Storm first stood shoulder-to-shoulder with her Fantastic Four teammates back in 1961, women have been carving a mark all their own in the world of Marvels and pulling their male counterparts out of the fire more often than not.
This past week saw the new Lady Liberators band together in HULK #7, Lady Bullseye running wild in DAREDEVIL #112 and Carol Danvers facing her past in MS. MARVEL #32 in just a few examples of girl power spreading through the Marvel U.
We asked Marvel creators and editors to select their personal favorites from the House of Ideas' vast catalogue of fighting females and here's what we got back.

TGIF

With a palette as rich as the Marvel Universe, you've got good odds that even creators and editors who have spent years working for the House of Ideas have certain characters they've never touched but long to explore creatively.

This week, Marvel.com asked those talented folks what dream projects they still aspire to make reality someday.
