He and this store Kidrobot just released a limited edition figure/statue of Miss November 1978, which was made available last night at their store in West Hollywood, where Pope was on hand to autograph them and chat with people.

I went, got my figure, and this fantastic Jonah Hex sketch (the guy in front of me got a sweet Batman, and was kind enough to give me paper for mine). He said it was the first time he'd ever drawn Hex, so that was pretty cool as well. Paul was an incredibly nice guy and cool to chat with for a few minutes. I was just bummed that the new remastered Heavy Liquid hardcover isn't out for 2 more weeks. Also, there's a 100% hardcover coming in April, and he very well may be doing an issue of Jonah Hex.

Excuse the crappy cameraphone quality:

So did he only do the illustration/sketch the piece was based on or did he have a hand in the sculpting?

Nice sketch!

That's awesome, man. First time drawing Hex? You've got a piece of history there! Especially if he does end up drawing an issue.

I'm just "discovering" Paul Pope at the moment, he's so great.

Damn.. I didn't know Playboy made statues like that... that's unbelievably awesome.

Also, Paul Pope is brilliant.

I always figured Pope would be intimidating to talk to. Like, he'd be nice and everything, but in your heart you'd know he was too cool for you and too cool for the room. :lol:

I thought that would be the case too. It was funny when he walked up to the shop just before the opening at 6, he was by himself in a wifebeater and with a cool artist-y bag. He smiled and thanked people for coming in a low tone of voice. A few people didn't even realize it was him. He's got a warm smile and pleasant disposition.

But deep down, I still knew he was way too cool for me.
