too late for NODOK


sorry all its past the march deadline-but the thought of no more modok was too much to bear
will we see his like again?
Fade to black

A Well Earned Rest...


Well folks...thats it.
PENCILS DOWN!
The month of MARCH MODOK MADNESS IS OFFICIALLY ENDED!
So, while our illustrious founder heads out to the beach for a little well deserved R&R, with his umbrella drink, and a monte cristo cigar in hand. I wanted to take a few minutes to thank you all for making this a lot of fun.
I'd also like to thank my fellow administrator Brendan for introducing me to MODOK, and for getting so actively involved in making this a wonderful month of fun fan art.
Thanks Brendan.
That being said. Please, Comb through this blog.....
In one month we have netted just shy of 100 individual pieces of art. AMAZING!
We've netted traffic from other sites that link to us. AWESOME!
We've got art from new people and made new contact with other MODOK fans. ASTOUNDING!
Furthermore, it was fun and challenging for all. SWEET!
Brendan and I are hoping to see some of you again next year when the madness is rekindled in O9'.
However, Brendan and I are tentatively scheduling to have MODOK return again this year. For another month of art, comics, animation, and whatever you wanna do to celebrate our favorite "mental organism".
As the rough plans stand now.....
THE MONTH WILL BE OCTOBER............
and the mission will be.... MODOKTOBERFEST!

But, thats some time from now, no need to worry about it yet.. So, have a great spring and summer season. Do some drawings, hit the beaches, enjoy cold beers on warm late afternoons, and all the other good stuff.
All the best,

Pedro

The END. ;)











Wanted to do one last one. This was done using the infamous "Pencil tool" in Flash.

MODOK AN' ARNIM.

HERE IS THE COMIC DEBUT OF TWO FAMOUS KIRBY HEADED CHARACTERS TOGETHER...IN A COMIC.

Happy Trails To You, Until We Meet Again...



As MODOK rides off into the sunset, he thanks you all for making March MODOK Madness a hit. Thanks to everyone who contributed, I loved seeing all the varieties of MODOK you all came up with. Hope to do it all again, like, next March. Or, perhaps, a wee bit sooner.... Stay tuned.

The Lonely, Horrific Death Of MODOK

This one breaks my heart. On their first major mission the Serpent Society were hired by AIM(those turncoats Advanced Idea Mechanics) to assassinate MODOK. They caught him unawares and proceeded to fill him with poison while he was still in his pajamas. I drew this from memory. I could have sworn the cover looked just like this. I finally found the cover on the internet and saw that they only show Death Adder(the dude on the far left) attacking MODOK while he is in his pajamas. I'm pretty sure there is a panel in the comic where Death Adder and Cottonmouth(the dude with the huge teeth) are just chewing on the poor soul. I remember MODOK somehow(don't ask) ripping off the arms of the dude with the tail(and he was flying). I couldn't find my issue of this so this is all from memory. I know I have the issue of Iron Man that came out shortly after where they reanimate the rotting corpse of MODOK and make him attack Iron Man(again it was those Benedict Arnold's at AIM).

These memories haunted me as a child and still to this day I can't sleep at night until I check under my bed for snakes. Never again I say! Death Adder was one of the first executed by Scourge(the weird dude who assassinated supervillains). MODOK has been back recently. I am unsure if he is undead or just older(I'm talking about the crows feet and the pallid skin). Lets remember him in better times, but never forget the tragic past so we are not doomed to repeat it. A prayer for MODOK.

"This one's from last August, but I still wanted to share him with all the M.O.D.O.K. fans here. M.O.D.O.K. approved of me sending it in to the blog, but it took some convincing."

Thanks for sharing.

GOING POSTAL ON THE HULK


SO MODOK's NOT TO HAPPY ABOUT THE UPCOMING HULK MOVIE. He also confessed that he didn't know who this ED NORTON was...BUT, HE ASSURED ME THAT HE WOULD KICK HIS TAIL.

MAINLY HE'S CHEESED BECAUSE HE WASN'T ASKED TO BE THE BADDIE. THE ABOMINATION DOESN'T HAVE ANY FRIGGING MINDBLASTS!!!!

"TAKE THAT YOU BIG GREEN IDIOT!."

HOPE YOU DIG.
ONE MORE DAY!

Nobody's business but the Turks!


















Took me a while, but I got it in before the buzzer! This is an nod to a couple Turkish films I saw recently, including one featuring the Turkish Captain America (I know!) and the EVIL Turkish Spiderman.

Surprisingly good, especially the fight scenes. There's a double kick in a cemetery that will blow your mind!!!

Fishing With MODOK






We all enjoy a little downtime from scientific work and world domination planning. Fishing is a great way to unwind. However, think twice when you invite a mental organism, whom sits atop a ROCKET-powered mobility chair, aboard your WOODEN row boat. Silly bucket-headed, beekeeper, AIM guy.

I don't know enough about him, but who really does?

I agree, Chris. Truly, our favorite mental organism is a man of mystery. Though he has that 2 ton brain, he never really tells us what's on his mind. Doesn't he know relationships are built on communication? Sigh.

Anyway, thanks for the sweet, pencilled MODOK shown here and great job with the coloring on Mizz MODOK. Chris shares a blog with his buddy Adrian called graphicapparatus. Check his sites out.

Modok's Poetry Corner No. 4


So, for this final installment of the Poetry corner we delve into some of Modok's work. Involving poetic verse and its interpretation of his illustrious name. We also note that MODOK smoked a little Pot back in SUPER VILLAIN UNIVERSITY. My guess is he was hanging with man ape, arnum Zola, and perhaps the hypno hustler at this time.

MODOK!!


slight delay on this poetry...I had a file go south on me. ENJOY!!
Hope you dig. Daddy-O.

P

OH!!
ON an added note after I repaired the work on my file I noticed that the negative space made by these two had some Creepy potential.
What do you think???

Hunk A Hunk A Burnin' MODOK


Yes, folks. Three Elvis MODOKs shooting cheeseburgers. No, don't thank my warped mind. Thank Warren Ellis and shame on you for not reading Nextwave: Agents of H.A.T.E.. Just be glad I did not add midgets in Iron Man bondage gear.

Hey all,

With March drawing to a close some people are still wondering what will happen in the NCAA. Who will survive the FINAL FOUR....who will take the big prize on April 7th.
But,.....I already know.

And he doesn't even like basketball.

HOBODOK!!!


In a recent flurry of new mental activity and exploration. MODOK recently discovered that there is a whole lobe in his vast (possibly limitless) mind devoted to music.

With this newfound knowledge in hand he promptly went on tour.
As, HOBODOK!..
..Playing a spirited blend of Blues/Funk Harmonica with a rhythm section made up of ARNUM ZOLA, and MODAM with occasional backup vocals. While on tour they usually kill three dozen people attending each show. Modok's gravel-y voice merges well with song lyrics that talk smack about Captain America, the Avengers, and the Hulk.
Mostly the band is about killing, the great music just seems to come naturally with the process.

So, give um' a listen......OR DIE!!!

MO*DO*KU!!


Yes, Its time for some MODOK MIND BUILDING That everyone can enjoy.
Rules are simple. It works just the same as an Asian based number puzzle and it should be rigged to actually be solvable. if you'd like you can take the image into photoshop and cut and paste the forms into the blanks or use the corresponding numbers if you like a challenge.

MODOK LOVES TO STRETCH his mind. Makes for new ways to do his KILLIN'

GOOD LUCK FOLKS and enjoy...WE HAVE SEVEN MORE DAYS!!

MODOK in Love



I guess MODOK has a thing for Ms. Marvel. Actually, their first encounter didn't quite go down this way. Essentially, MODOK mentally took advantage of poor Carol. What a jerkface! But check out MODOK's studdly mental self! I guess he's been hitting the ol' gym!

Male Pattern MODOK.


So, Modok is having a tough time of late. It turns out, that due to all the killing he's been doing and many mindblasts he's fired in order to do said KILLING. That he is experiencing a pattern based hair loss. The big guy is taking it pretty hard. But, is is learning to deal with the change and MINDBLASTING ANY PERSON who gives him a hard time about the issue.

Hope you dig.

MINDBLAST FOR A NEW AGE!


Recently, MODOK made a small upgrade to his Mindblast Headset. His cunning intellect lead him to begin using something a little less obvious then the normal brainray. However this new force is, far more destructive, devious, and crippling.
REALITY TELEVISION!
HIS NEW MINDBLASTER, has a multitude of BRAIN SCRAMBLING PROGRAMS....SUITABLE FOR SUBDUING ANY HERO, AND ANY OTHER POSSIBLE VIEWING DEMOGRAPHIC.

SOON ALL OF THE WORLD WILL BE IN IS MIGHTY GRIP, A PLAN OF SHEAR EVIL.

RATINGS ARE UP,
TUNE IN FOR AN ALL NEW SEASON,
and don't forget to PICK UP SEASONS ONE AND TWO ON DISC,.....

MODOK IS YOUR SUPREME RULER!!!

ORIGINS of THE MADNESS.



So, like most other truly great Ideas. This whole month of Modok sketches and fandom Is the product of Drinking. Determination and Drinking. The idea occurred in mid February, when I'd met with Brendan at Jimmy's Corner (a small boxing themed bar on 44th st.) for drinks after work. I showed up late but Brendan was already at the bar with a stool waiting for me. I settled in and pulled out the sketch paper on a clipboard, and a handful of pencils... We drank and sketched, passing the pages back and forth between rounds. Discussing Old Video games (8bit), comics, and general business about the home/office. I scribbled out the MODOK on the left, and passed it to Brendan who did a much better MODOK on the right. I kept the page and on the way out the bar we started talking about doing some MODOK Fan art.

The rest is MARCH MODOK MADNESS.
Thanks for being involved.

MODOK KILL SPONGEBOB!

This piece comes from my lovely lady, Cara, who's put up with my obsession with creating MODOK pieces for the past month. She's put up with my obsession with Spongebob Squarepants as well. What a good sport! I have to agree, I think MODOK would be at odds with the sponge man and would take a more hands-on approach in disposing the squeaky voiced sea creature. Thanks for the submission, Cara! Now stop touching my stuff...

Modok's Poetry Corner No.3


OH DAMN.....POETRY SLAM!!!
MODOK Recently returned to an earlier couplet that he wrote. It was from a period in his writing career where ideas are still very rough and in the text you can hear is own dreams and aspirations on the future to come. The Poem may lack proper structure here and there but, he was very busy KILLING at this point so his work is largely unrefined.

Hope you dig.

Here's a submission of, ahem, enormous proportions. Adrian writes:

Mizz M.O.D.O.K.

Her name stands for Miss Organism Dating Only Krazies. She is
actually quite charming. She makes great pasta. While you may need
to be careful during sexual intercourse with her(don't let her on
top), she is a very caring lover with a generous streak(although her
mouth is a little big for my tastes). While I personally have come to
prefer a smaller caliber of bra size, she comes in at an enormous
8@DD(an new designation of bra size). I will say that we had a rough
break up and she did blast me more than once with her mento ray. She
eventually worked her way through a bunch of reluctant minions. Her
likes are sitting in big chairs(preferably with rockets under them),
milkshakes, the 32 ounce steak at the Back 40, off road vehicles,
candle lit all you can eat brunch, rap-metal music(don't ask), party
lesbians, and men with generous proportions(especially downstairs, one
of the sticking points in our many fights, because hey, I may be
Puerto Rican, but I don't have every great attribute of a mixed race).
She internet dates and loves to get phone calls on those phone lines
you see advertised on late night television.

"MODAM ON MY MIND..."

So what does a giant floating head Dream about. I'll give you a hint...

DIRTY DREAMING ABOUT M.O.D.A.M..
I also realized that we haven't really explored MODOK....the Lover. Till now its just been KILL KILL KILL. So I figured we needed a little SEX SEX SEX....
Here she is a little closer.

Drawing a sexy MODAM was hard. But I like the result......NOT "LIKE" LIKE but, it turned out well. Also, ignore my wacky frame on this one....just playing around. little more time and I might have rendered out Modok in color....OH well. ON TO TOMORROW. 12 more days.

MODOKIMATION



So much mindblasting going on.

Even Ray Alma is mind blasting.

More Modok maniacally marching on!

SUBMITTED MODOK: RAY ALMA



This sketch is the crafty tablet work of my friend, and former Co-worker Ray Alma. Ray, gets big props as far as MODOK and myself are concerned. Not only because he is one of the finest illustrators I have met here in the city. But, also because he is an all around awesome guy to interact with.
Very knowledgeable in G.I.Joe's, Mad Magazine (he Illustrates for them now and again), Comic books, and all other things Nerdtastic. He makes a damn fine homemade Halloween costume, and is a great guy to play Pictionary with.

If you'd like to see some of Rays work please visit. THIS WEBSITE!

Drop him a few comments. He may not be a blogger but, I am sure he will check um out.

Thanks for sharing Ray. Hope to see more.

MODOK'S LAST CALL.


Hope you all had a good patty's day. Looks like even MODOK hooked up a date.

P

Faith and Begorrah, Me Boyo!



Happy St. Patrick's Day, one and all! Had to squeeze this puppy out during me lunch hour and wish I had longer to work on it. Anyway, MODOK finds he can't hold his own when drinking with Sean Cassidy, the screaming Irish mutant known as Banshee! MODOK may have mass on his side, but Banshee is Irish through and through! Hands down win for Banshee all the way.

--B

what could possibly go wrong


So this is an idea that Brendan and I have been discussing for at least 2 years. You see, Man-thing has to get a roommate and MODOK answers his craigslist ad. You can pretty much guess the rest from there.

I'm sorry that it's not St. Patty's day inspired, but if you look at Man-thing for long enough you just might find a shamrock growing on him.
