Imaginary Acquaintances: Prometheus

Spring Cleaning: LOST Mural

Hey gang, remember the show Lost? I sure do. Especially after going through my workroom closet and finding a giant, 4' x 5' mural dedicated to the show that I painted for my old job at the now non-existent Startstruck Entertainment.

I am giving this away to any interested parties, otherwise I am throwing it out on my next garbage day (Tuesday, May 13th). If you want it, please contact me via twitter (@AdamTGorham) or e-mail ( and we'll arrange pick-up. It's big.

The mural was created to mark the release of season six on home video. A bunch of us had big hard-ons for the show and would avidly discuss its many mysteries, so the creation of this was a lot of fun personally.

The mural encapsulates the whole series and includes various highlights of the series' mythology. I even sneaked the infamous Numbers into the details.

Summing up: free 4'x5' painted Lost mural by Tuesday, May 13th or its garbage.

Friday Flashback: Marvel Submissions

I know it's not Throwback Thursday, so we'll call this Flashback Friday.

Back in the days when Marvel Comics took open, unsolicited submissions, I sent in five pages of a Spider-Man adventure. It was very timely. I drew them while reading Spidey's Back In Black story-arc (which was truly kick-ass and came just before the One More Day retcon). I think this was also around the time Norman Osborn took over SHIELD and formed the Dark Avengers, but I can't be bothered to fact check right now. Alls I know, Mac Gargon was Venom and including Green Goblin and Bullseye seemed like a bulletproof idea.

Anyway, I remember pouring myself into these five pages, drawn on 8x10 printer paper with a mechanical pencil for the most part. Although why I felt the need to fill everything in and add shading is beyond me.

In case you find the plot too hard to follow...

Page 1: Venom spots Spider-Man just a'swining through NYC and thinks, I cannot wait to fuck this guy up. Before he can, the Green Goblin--who must've been silently gliding nearby?--sidles up to Venom and calls dibs.

Page 2: Spidey-sense in full effect as GG prepares to lob a bomb from behind. Spider-man narrowly avoids the bomb, but as it whirls by he catches it with a web. Now tethered, Spider-Man swings the bomb around in mid-air like a shot-put, connecting with GG's glider. The glider explodes as Spider-Man free falls into an alleyway for cover.

Page 3: Before he hits the ground, Spider-Man swings back into the air, all while being completely oblivious to Bullseye who I guess was milling around on a nearby rooftop with throwing star at the ready. BE expertly severes Spider-Man's web via throwing star--something his spider-sense oddly did not detect--which proves a rather pointless effort as Spider-Man simply spins another web and swings far away from a guy stuck on a roof. But he's not out of hot water yet, because Venom finally moves in for his kill.

Page 4: Venom latches on to Spider-Man mid-air web-swing and together they crash through the side of a building. Venom uses Spider-Man to break his landing, fucking Spidey up but good.

Page 5: Venom finally has a wounded, defeated Spider-Man exactly where he wants him, and spends two panels holding and staring into Spider-Man's goggles. Not smart! Because Daredevil shows up and lands a billy club right in Venom's face!
