When Josh Hoopes Stole From His Place Of Work… And From Artist Pasquale Qualano

In our many investigations of the comic indusry conman Josh Hoopes, we discovered that he was working at a saw mill in Sacramento, California, appropriately ACME Saw. However, it appears now that he is no longer working there, thought through no action of ours. Instead he was fired by the company for stealing tools from […]

The Todd McFarlane And Art Adams Fakes By Josh Hoopes

I had to be sure these were fakes. They were, but I had to be sure. And now I have confirmation from both Todd and Art that they are complete and utter forgeries. These are the so-called sketches by Todd McFarlane and Art Adams that one Gregory Garwood sold to major comics art dealer, Mike […]

Josh Hoopes: He’s Not The Messiah He’s A Very Naughty Boy

I’ve managed to tie up two strands from differing Josh Hoopes scams together.
