ARES ARISE! Guest Post #7-- Dean Haspiel!

The seventh in a daily celebration by awesome cartoonists of the much-maligned god of war himself, Ares, on the occasion of the publishing of Olympians Volume 7, Ares: Bringer of War.  Today's entry: Dean Haspiel!
Dean brings us an awesome, superheroic (or is it supervillainic?) iteration of the God of War. I don't know about you, but the combo of bold colors, super-slick art and a cool logo leave me hankering for a Dean Haspiel helmed Ares comic.

Emmy award winner and Eisner, Harvey & Ignatz Award nominee Dean Haspiel created BILLY DOGMA, illustrated for HBO's "Bored To Death," was a Master Artist at the Atlantic Center for the Arts, is a Yaddo fellow, a playwright, helped pioneer personal webcomics with the invention of and, and is the co-founder of Hang Dai Editions in Brooklyn, NY. Dino has written and drawn many comic books, including The Fox, Spider-Man, Batman, X-men, The Fantastic Four, Wonder Woman, Deadpool, Godzilla, Mars Attacks and collaborations with Harvey Pekar, Jonathan Ames, Inverna Lockpez, Jonathan Lethem, Mark Waid, and Stan Lee. Dino steeps in psychotronic movies, cosmic electronica, and Jack Kirby pulp. Check out more of his stuff at
