Macross, She-Dragon and The Gene Colan Project!

If you are a regular visitor here, I’m sorry it has been so long since new material appeared. Oddly, when I quit smoking recently, it lead to me changing a lot of my routine. A changed routine meant finding a new one that included writing blog entries. This has proven to be more difficult than I anticipated.

This is the second time that I’ve let me fanatic dedication to this great animated show of my youth hang out in random ways. There is also a Jonny Quest illustration hiding in a post about comic creator jack-of-all-trades Jeff Parker.

Posting that Dave Stevens cover got me to thinking more about Comico. So I’ve decided to make it the subject of this weeks quiz question.
