Flying Colors' Joe Field & Dan Brereton Look Back at the Early Days


From Joe Field's own Blog, Septermber 27th, 2007:

The 19th Anniversary of the opening of FLYING COLORS Comics & Other Cool Stuff is upon us---and we're celebrating with a special event with artist Dan Brereton and the World Premier of NOCTURNALS Volume One: Black Planet & Other Stories, this Saturday September 29th from 1-4pm. I really hope you can join us.

New Gallery!


Some talk on Dan Brereton's Message Board:
about a line of Nocturnals toys which, sadly, never saw the inside of a toy store, prompted us to go through the archives and find several picures of Nocturnals action figure prototypes from that time. It's possible these or newer figures might turn up one day, after the new Nocturnals books have re-established themselves in the comics marketplace. Until then, enjoy this peek:


We Mourn the Tragic Loss of Creator Mike Wieringo

Mike Wieringo

I was shocked to discover today that Mike "Ringo" Wieringo
died Sunday August 12th of a massive heart attack. He was a vegatarian, fit and healthy by all accounts- its incredibly shocking.

Moreover, Mike was a friendly guy and an extremely talented artist. He was an inspiration because of his style and excellent skills. He drew circles around most of us and he did it with good-natured humility.
