Jason McGuire by Archie artist Dan Parent

Jason McGuire
Here's something unique: a color sketch of Dennis Patrick as DARK SHADOWS ne-er-do-well Jason McGuire by DAN PARENT. This sketch belongs to HawkeyeVSGirl, the proprietor of the one and only Dennis Patrick FanSite. Here's what she had to say about the sketch: 

"... At the Toronto Fan Expo convention last year I got current comics hot property Dan Parent (of Archie comics/Kevin Keller fame) to do a sketch of Jason McGuire. In Riverdale terms, I saw Jason as a Reggie Mantle type (what can I say? I've always liked the prick characters!) and I think that's what he went with.... I wanted to get him to draw Paul Stoddard along the lines of Mr Lodge but didn't."

I've met Dan a few times and he's a heck of a nice guy. The work he's doing for ARCHIE right now is landmark stuff ... not only for the Archie-brand, but for comics in general. If you've been out of the loop, here's what you've been misssing.
