2009 "LATE NIGHT SNACK..." color art by Tom Valente

Back in November, we featured Tom Valente's 2007 sketch titled "ICE COLD MILK and AN OREO COOKIE", thanks to a link from the Martian Manhunter Fotolog. Today, I received a comment from the artist...

Hey everyone! I just saw this blog recently and I wanted to pop in to say thanks for posting up my sketch; I'm glad you all liked it. And if you'd like, you can check out the finished color version over on my blog. http://tomvalente.blogspot.com/

Btw, I would say he's watching "My Favorite Martian" re-runs.

As you can see, this is a much more complete presentation, with a surprisingly subdued mood. Do note that in the finished piece, just as in the comics, the Oreos brand has been retconned into Chocos. There's also a lot more detail and in jokes. I like this quite a bit, and am glad Tom let us in on the revisitation. If you dig this, do follow the link to Tom's blog, or check out his work at Cracked.com.
