If This Be-- MODOK! Sort of...



Hey all! Thought I'd put a word in here as well. First, props to Pedro for the banner you all see in the header of this blog. Sweet work, pal. I hear there's even people requesting t-shirts of it. That's high praise, man. Who knew MODOK would be the new fashion fad?

We welcome you to March MODOK Madness, a blog dedicated to the big evil head during the month of March. Pedro and I cooked up this little gem because we wanted to crank out some good illos featuring the titular mental organism, for whom we both share a mutual admiration. Let's face it, he's pretty damn cool.

We would also like to ask those of you who would like to join us in our endeavor to do so. Just drop us a line by clicking the gmail button to your right. We did lay down some ground rules, which you can read in the initial post. However, don't let them put you off if you want to join in. We just want to see your MODOKs in all their different variations and glorious styles. If you're just a casual fan or would like to passively enjoy MODOK, we invite you to keep coming back to read new posts. Viewers welcome. But this is all old hat that's been covered in previous posts.

I did want to write a piece about MODOK, but I don't think I can put it any better than this guy. Check out There's Something About MODOK in its entirety, but to paraphrase, he summed MODOK up best:

In the end, MODOK-love is a little like a crush, a little like a child, a lot like a cult: you either get it, or you don't. Get it. Feel it. Live it. The man, the mental organism: the MODOK.


Enjoy March MODOK Madness this month and tell your friends. Get the word out. Cook up some MODOKs. Link to us. Stay warm. Be good. All that jazz.

BEWARE THE IDES OF M.O.D.O.K.!!


MODOK's first appearance in Tales of Suspense #94, by Stan Lee, Jack Kirby,and Joe Sinnott.

Hey boys and girls,

I wanna talk about M.O.D.O.K,
M ental
O rganism
D esigned
O nly for
K illing
He is an awesome marvel villain spawned out of the fertile pen/pencil of Jack Kirby. So great was MODOK's first appearance in Tales of Suspense #94, that Brendan Tobin and myself are rallying to make March the month of the MINDBLAST.

Here are some of the guidelines for this adventure:
1. We're thinking a minimum of 5 posts per participant (March has 5 Sundays this year), that's at least 1 or so a week, by each Sunday. No limit to a maximum, as long as it is within March 1-31.
2. Each post, under the title/tag of "March MODOK Madness" project title, should feature MODOK (and we mean it), in some form or another as the focus, but can feature other characters/elements. Sky is the limit in interpretation of MODOK, if it be realistic, cartoony, comicbooky, designy, whatever.
3. You can write as much or as little about your posted pic as seen fit. If you have a good MODOK inspired HAIKU handy that would be stellar.
4. Commenting on posts is encouraged and appreciated as long as comments consist of positive and constructive criticism. Throwing out support for one another's recent MODOK endeavors would be welcomed. Links in posts that bring attention to individuals' personal, creative blogs is also welcomed.
5. Have fun, and remember MODOK is what he is: A massive, malevolent, mindblasting menace of malice and mirth. Your drawings can be finished or sketches, but the key ingredient should be love in this equation.


On behalf of Brendan and myself I welcome you to the March MODOK Madness, and thank you for sharing your time with our works.

Many thanks..
