Illustration I did of the famous Catch Wrestling Hold Known As the Grovit circa 2012. As Jake Shannon gave testimony to here in his review of my Catch Wrestling Comic Book Strength Monsters I used to tell Billy about my ideas for comic books all the time.
Here’s the illustration in its entirety;
Here is a sketch I did for my Worlds Deadliest strip circa 2014 I have not yet published the strip that goes with this illustration. Stay tunes as I will be bringing the comic strip back by the end of the year!
These are some early concept illustrations I did for Worlds Deadliest Circa 2011. I hope to bring this comic book out of Hiatus by the end of the years. Currently I have several project I have to wrap up until I can bring Worlds Deadliest back but mark my words it will come back!
Yesterday I published the Vintage Martial Arts Mail Order advertisement to be come a Registered Black Belt and learn Aicondo. Todays post is an illustration I did circa 2014 in nod to the, “simultaneous side kick and punch while neck chopping and opponent” behind you illustration in the Aicondo advertisement. Men of Action is just one of examples of many hidden nods and tributes I’ve embedded with in my Worlds Deadliest Web Comic. Many of them will go unnoticed to the lay person but for the real martial arts historians there is much to be discovered within the series. You can read my martial arts webcomic Worlds Deadliest online for free starting with Chapter 1 here.
Another classic mail order martial arts course that ran in comic books and men’s magazines nation wide. For only $6.95 Aicondo will turn you into a deadly fighting machine. It is a deadly self-defense system using the best of Karate, Kung-Fu, Judo and Aikido. If I can learn how to simultaneously punch and kicking the air while neck chopping an opponent behind me sign me up! I want to be a studly looking dude in a gi that can pose coolly while young women admire me! As great as the over the top ad copy in Aicondo is I love the illustrations in this ad the most. I’ve actually done original illustrations of my own in tribute to this advertisement in my Worlds Deadliest comic book. Check out Men of Action my nod to the simultaneous side kick punch neck chop double neck chop here. My nod to the guy standing in the gi with the admiring woman next him has not been published public yet. When I do publish it I will link to it here.
This classic advertisement for Joe Weider’s Destructive Self Defense mail order martial arts course once ran in comic books and mens magazines all across the country. Make sure you check out the illustration I did with comic book inking legend Joe Rubinstein back in 2012 inspired by this classic Martial Arts Mail Order Course here.

Meme I made Circa 2012 featuring one of my favorite scenes from the Karate Kid.
Stumbled across this cool video today while doing more research for the collected print (and download) edition of Worlds Deadliest, Chapter 1; “Deathly Weapons.”
I’ve been working really hard to finished this first collected edition of my Martial Arts Web Comic Worlds Deadliest soon. The book will contain a number of never before published illustrations by myself, biographical essays on important martial artists and a number of additional articles and resources pertaining to martial arts even including some little known and obscure information about Dim Mak!
Hopefully the overall all the finished product will be the martial arts book you’ve always wanted to read that no one ever made.
