Behind the Scenes: Blister

In the late 90s I began doing some promotional marketing work for local Chicago musicians.  I also ran a popular fansite for (the recently disbanded) Smoking Popes.  The site tracked the projects the various members were involved in, and kept track of the efforts to release the last of their recordings.

Around that time, I became friends with Mike Felumlee, who was previously the drummer for Smoking Popes and at the time was drumming for Alkaline Trio.  More importantly, Mike was owner of Double Zero Records and put out many record releases and promoted some really great bands.

Highlights of the anniversary festivities include the long-awaited re-editing and colorization of the 2009 Adhesive Man series, the release of The Gnat’s shelved 2009 series, and the debut of a more traditional take on the Adhesive Man character, in this summer’s The Unbelievable Adhesive Man.

First appearing in the amateur comic book, Adhesive Man #1, in late 1992, featuring artwork and script by Eric J Cockrell, Adhesive Man immediately grew a small fanbase that clamored for more. The hero was quickly joined by Darren Fitzpatrick’s The Gnat, and a slew of other characters...
