Laters...


Hey, all. Mere minutes before March MODOK Madness comes to a close for another year. I whipped this sketchy puppy out just under the wire. Whew.

I want to thank everyone who has supported this blog this month. Thank you to all the artists who contributed their wonderful MODOK renderings. Thank you to all the collectors who shared their collected pieces featuring MODOK. I'm glad that you see the genius in Kirby's character and commission works that include him. Thank you to all the websites and blogs out there who linked to us. You guys sent major traffic our way and helped get people involved in the madness. Thanks to all the people who came by and checked out the many different MODOKs. Last but certainly not least, a lot of thanks to Pedro Delgado, partner in crime and co-administrator on this blog, for not only your inspiring pieces, but your tireless effort in maintaining and promoting March MODOK Madness. [Cue "get-the-hell-off-the-stage" music here.]

Yes, it is a sad affair to see the end of March for 2009 and a whole year of MODOKlessness. But if you love Jack Kirby that much, how about contributing to the April Reign of Arnim Zola? Why not? See you next year. Just like summer camp. Love.

Get Ready... because nothing will ever be the same again!

Meet F.A.U.X.D.O.C.K.(Fake, Asshole, Urban, Xenophobe, Designed Only For Killing). When he was in highschool he had a crush on Michelle Meyers but she thought he was a dweeb with his cello lessons and braces and greasy hair. But in highschool he found out about indie music and sunglasses and spiked hair in faux mohawk fashion. He never did fit into the skinny jeans or get that first Death Cab For Cutie album but he did learn the faux-jitsu ways and manage to pull some chicks(especially those with fifties style accouterments). I hate him. I hate him so much. My leather jacket and fashionably quaffed fake bed head hair will never amount to a freckle on his joystick-ed chair.

By the way, he did eventually get Michelle Myers. All it took was a bender on Jagermeister over at Senor Frog's in Cancun where they talked about Whitney leaving The Hills. Later they visited the Cabo Wabo bathroom and they totally consummated that shit.

He didn't end up with Michelle Meyers, though. He kept getting booty calls from MODAM after she finished cramming for exams. His bro's told him not to "do" her because she was fugly, but "modoks of a feather--" and all that, you know.

Anyway, now he does real estate at Re-max in Encino where I think he is totally balling the receptionist. But he pretends to date Jessica Stein because her dad is the boss so he gets the best properties. He says you always have to have a plan.

Thanks, Adrian. www.graphicapparatus.blogspot.com/

QUASIMODO-DOK!


Some Literary scholars now believe that Victor Hugo's masterpiece The Hunchback of Notre Dame was based loosely on one of Modok's earlier ancestors.
He lived above the Cathedral and didn't bother too many people. In fact he was really sweet on this gypsy girl too, but he wasn't much to look at. So, when an angry mob of French peasants ousted him, from his domicile for his terrifying appearance. He fled to seek out a life of revenge...this led to killin', and mindblasts down the road. Thus continued the long time honored Modok heritage.

That being said, this'll be my last MODOK for o9'.
I wanted to thank everyone involved for making it a most excellent year indeed.
In fact this year:
-We Increased site traffic almost exponentially.
-The word got out on the web, and Modok was noticed by all kinds of neighboring websites.
-There was a steady influx of new members to the blog, along with submitted works from all kinds of talented artists, and fellow Modok fans.
-We Netted almost 130 plus posts for the whole of march and the last day isn't even over yet!
Great WORK everyone!!

So, again I thank you all. With Special thanks to my Co-captain BrendanTOBIN for his crackerjack effort and time spent keeping up with updating submissions while making awesome Modok images. Also, I'd like to thank Kasra Ghanbari for peppering our mailbox with wonderful Modok drawings from his vast personal stash.

I've got plenty of unfinished drawings here on my desk, that I hope you'll come back and check out during next year. Other then that I encourage you to take some time to browse the site, lots of great work, tons of great artists, and one BAD ASS MENTAL ORGANISM.

So, Farewell 09'
Get ready for...

Easter is almost here, and you know what that means. MODOK's dressing up like the Easter Bunny and hiding explosive eggs for all the boys and girls. Kind of a horrible thing to do, but he's MODOK and it is an annual tradition. Let's hope you luck out this year and lose the hunt. Thanks for joining in, Holly!

Meet The MODOKs


Staying out all night, smoking and drinking, doing some killing, and playing cards with the boys, MODOK's got some 'splainin' to do. But, really, how much damage can she inflict waving that rolling pin around with those petite arms? Yeah, I know, an antiquated and chauvinistic depiction of the louse husband and his vengeful shrew wife, but then again, how else would you imagine the coupling of two homicidal mental organisms? That's right, like something out of Andy Capp.

LIEFELDOK!


Some weird things happened with Marvel back in the 90's...
Heck, few people even know that Modok tired to change roles for a little while during this period. He wasn't getting much work fighting Cappy and Tony Stark so he branched out in order to up his street cred...
It was for this part in a brand new comic for a sister company. The characters name was KILLY KILL KILL BLOODKILLER WOLFSTRIKE KILL DEATHMAKER KILLMARK KILL Mc RIPSLASHER KILLINGTON.

O.K. so he didn't read the whole script, and quit the gig a few weeks later. But, Its rumored that he kept one of the crazy big guns for use in killin', and one of the pocket belts, for sorting skittles and loose screws.

If you laugh, at modok. Expect a Mindblast.

This Modok Comes from the easel of Steve Moverley.
Here Steve, is working to capture Modok in a period of relaxation, on a picnic in the park, during a fine warm day.....
WHEN SUDDENLY,!!!
Damn squirrel stole MODOK's sandwich! Can't MODOK enjoy a simple picnic in peace?!?!
This might have ruined Modok's meal but as you can see he's also ruined the park and playground.
Now, I can't even use that slide anymore, yeesh.

And all of this so Modok could blast that squirrels nuts.....take that you little sandwich theif.....MINDBLAST!!

Cheers Steve.

Submitted MODOK: Gavin de Lint


This is far and away one of Modok's favorite ways to kill off unwanted AIM henchmen.
It involves a large meal of rich food and then a little time to digest. Then All Modok's gotta do is find the BEEKEEPER that he wants gone so he can ask those three little words...
"PULL MY FINGER.."
Most AIM troopers must do as they are told, and die a horrible death of noxious asphyxiation. Some are even less fortunate when they are torched because the methane is ignited by Modok' hoverchair. But, One thing is sure..."to refuse Modok, earns you a big fat MINDBLAST!"

HMODOK


YEP...MODOK is getting a little older, and he's finding it harder to get by.
What with the cost of all the meds he's takin'. Plus the hoverchair refuelings he's been forced to start to clipping coupons so that he can still get out and live a little whilst doing his Killing.

I think that Coupon clenched in his mit is for a free, Denny's Grand Slam. Modok knows that its expired two months ago, but he also knows that if Denny's doesn't honor it. EVERYONE IN THAT PLACE CAN EXPECT A MINDBLAST!...

DEEP BLUE MODOK


HEY EVERYONE, GREAT NEWS!
Brendan just let me know that MODOK and THE MADNESS just got the thumbs up from the guys over at WIRED.COM!
Great work everyone!

That being said, I'll present my most recent MODOK.
Believe it or Not, the 1999 theatrical release DEEP BLUE SEA
,a thriller about biologically altered sharks with super intelligence. Was really based on some work A.I.M did back in the 70's. Upon finding out that S.H.I.E.L.D, was supplying Captain America with cool underwater diving crafts for use during infiltration upon deep sea hideouts. A.I.M. scientists embarked on a rush plan to create a genetic merger between their MODOK technology, and the oceans most deadly killing machine.

The project yielded the MODOK SUPERSHARK, the true apex predator of the deep.

This diagram shows the scale and grim visage of this horrible creature. Its said that it could capsize whole battleships and split submarines in half with its razor sharp gripper fins. Some reports even mention the harpoon turrets atop the head firing waves of missiles into countless S.H.I.E.L.D agents. Furthermore some believe, that A.I.M. installed dozens of Torpedo tubes within the mouth of this creature. Capable of firing enough to sink whole fleet.

Capn' America is gonna' need a bigger boat.
