TOM STRONG by Wieringo TOM STRONG by Wieringo
This is a sketch of TOM STRONG I did for today's (Feb. 2, 2007) post on my blog. I came very close to getting to draw a story arc of the TOM STRONG title. It was always a favorite of mine, and I'm sorry it never actually happened.

Now the book-- and most of the ABC line of comics-- is no longer being published.

I'm a big Sprouse fanboy and I always thought nobody could get Tom right but him... but you did. Seriously, next time I think of the big guy this pic is going to be at the forefront of my mind.

I have to confess than whe I read the series I thought the art was just perfect.

Of course, I had no other alternatives. Now I'm wondering what you could've done with it. Or maybe you and Ed McGuinnes could alternate episodes! Call Ed, Alan and a publisher, pronto!

awesome.
wonderful expression on his face, you're very good at that.

sorry to hear that the book's no more published, but at least your country ahd the whole serie (in France we just had the first and second tpb...)

it's a shame you couldn't draw an issue, you would have totally fit in the Tom Strong's Universe !

This is great. One of my favorite characters brought to life by one of my favorite artists, can't ask for much more. Great pose and facial expression, you nailed the character, giving Chris Sprouse a run for his money!

No pun intended, but your Tom Strong is very...strong...seriously, it's one of the better versions that weren't by Sprouse...
Just curious, but do you know who would have written your arc?

His face reminds me of the actor Seann William Scott. The Stiffler from American Pie! The pic looks awesome as well!!!

That sucks that we won't get to see you do a Tom Strong story. That was a great series and you'd be a great fit. Excellent sketch per usual. :) Your work is fantastic.

Though I love this drawing Mike.. and is now one of my favs...When I close my eyes and imagine what"Mike Wieringo" would do concerning this character..I see it being pushed
a lot more as far as characteristics...Bigger chest,arms and chin...You know more cartoony..This to me is a really
good Superman drawing.

That's a GREAT version!

It's a pity that you never had the opportunity to draw a history arc of Tom Strong... That comic is one of my all-time favourites... Steampunk! Talking Apes! Flying backpacks!... *sigh*

That's just wrong. Moore should write a new "TS" series, just for you to draw. :)

Very strong (no pun intended) pose. You have some nice line weight going on in the upper portion of the body.
