Mike Torrance, Sly and Dolly!

Mike Torrance aka The Krayola Kidd is back and he’s brought Sly and Dolly Parton from Rhinestone  with him!  This is one of my recent favorites!

Over the coming weeks/months I’ll be posting more of Mike’s sketch card commissions.  My goal is to eventually get a card for every character Sly has played.  We’re well on our way!

You can see more of Mike’s art at his Deviant Art siteMike is available for commissions and his prices are very reasonable.

5 Other Stallone Characters That Need a TV Show

On August 22, 2013, Television Without Pity posted 5 Other Sylvester Stallone Characters That Need a TV Show.
When I clicked over to the article I thought I’d see Cobra, Demolition Man, and other of Sly’s action characters.  Boy, was I wrong.  Ethan Alter instead went with…
  1. Robert Hatch from Victory
  2. Nick Martinelli from Rhinestone
  3. Lincoln Hawk from Over the Top
  4. Sylvester Stallone from Burn, Hollywood, Burn
  5. Joe the Lion from Zookeeper
Props to Alter for thinking out of the box.

Sylvester Stallone: 5 Awesome Performances and 5 That Sucked.

On February 1, 2013, WhatCulture! posted Sylvester Stallone: 5 Awesome Performances and 5 That Sucked.

  • According to WhatCulture! 5 that were Awesome: Rambo [First Blood and sequels], John Spartan [Demolition Man], Gabe Walker [Cliffhanger], Freddy Heflin [Cop Land], and Rocky Balboa [Rocky and sequels].
  • Their Choices for Not-So-Awesome: Judge Dredd [same name], Ray Quick [The Specialist], Marion Cobretti [Cobra], Jack Carter [Get Carter], and Joe Bomoski [Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot!].

To Awesome I would delete Spartan and Walker to make room for Jack Carter and Deke Dasilva [Nighthawks].  To Not-So-Awesome I would delete Carter and add Nick from Rhinestone. – Craig

Ryan Cody Tries on Rhinestone


This his week Ryan Cody is back with Sly from Rhinestone.

Ryan is still running an unbelievable sale [where you get a free sketch with every purchase. That’s right. Buy Volume 1 of his sketchbook for five bucks and get a free sketch. Same if you buy Volume 2 or the Icarus Convention Issue].
