Today marks a big day in my writing career. One of my current projects Art Monster has just been green lit for publication. I can’t say who the publisher is at the moment, but I can share that the series will debut on Halloween. Quite appropriate if I do say so myself.
I couldn’t be more proud of the team on this project. Joe Eisma needs no introduction as you may have seen his work on a little comic entitled Morning Glories that’s releasing its 26th issue today! Remarkable series. Then we have some gorgeous colors by Paul Little whose work is currently gracing such books as Image’s Five Weapons, I Love Trouble, and No Place Like Home. Tim Daniel, who has become a very dear friend and collaborator absolutely rocked it on the logo design. Last but certainly not least, Ryan Ferrier‘s lettering is the connecting thread that ties everything together. He’s a phenomenal writer too, and runs the fantastic imprint Challenger Comics. They produce some top-notch creator owned work, most of which is absolutely free to read! Needless to say, all of these guys are true workhorses that produce some of the best comics out today. Couldn’t ask for a better group.
I’d also like to acknowledge my friend, Riley Rossmo. He’s been a huge supporter of my work, and originally pitched this idea to me a couple years ago. Our plans to collaborate on it never came to fruition due to scheduling conflicts, but he was kind enough to let me and Joe run with the concept, and here we are.
In a nutshell: This is a Frankenstein story that I’ve always wanted to write. When the time comes to release it onto the public, I hope you welcome it with open arms.

A LOT has transpired in the last twenty-four hours, but the only news that I can share at the moment is that Southern Dog #1 is now available on Comixology!
For only 99 pennies, you can read what Pop Culture Hound, Starburst Magazine, Multiversity Comics, and Graphic Policy have been raving about.
The Riley Rossmo cover is definitely worth its weight in gold, but everyone needs to be checking out rising star Alex Diotto. The kid is the real deal.
Purchase a copy here and thanks for reading!

I’m excited to share a sneak peak of a project that is currently in the works. Entitled Sleep Debt, we should have the pitch wrapped in two months, but plan to complete the four issue series regardless of publisher backing.
Can’t get much better than that…

I’m proud to share another installment of STRANGE LOVE. This is perhaps my best one to date, and am particularly proud of this gorgeous illustration by Daniel Schneider. Daniel is fantastic and everyone should check out his work here.
Feel free to read Part 16 here.
After you do, you may have noticed the “To Be Continued…” has been replaced. That’s right, I have concluded the first volume of the column. To be honest, I’ve actually managed to catch up to myself, and have decided to take a sabbatical in order to build up material for the second volume. I can’t thank Matthew Meylikhov enough for providing this opportunity last summer to tell my story at Multiversity Comics. I couldn’t have asked for a better editor on this series.
I’m also constantly surprised to meet fans of the column at conventions. Thank you all for joining me in this little adventure of mine, and I can’t wait to return to share the next part of my on-going journey into comic books.

Feel free to purchase a copy here.

I have yet another series in the works, and wanted to share this dynamite of a cover by the talented Joshua Gowdy. This is another co-created effort with my partner in crime Tim Daniel entitled SKINNED.
At its core, the series is about two star-crossed lovers living in an archaic future city that believe reality is a disease. Separated by a societal caste system, an heiress and a boy from the slums manage to find each other in a world that has given citizens the ability to choose from a multitude of realities via ocular lenses. Their struggle: Never losing site of each other in this ever changing landscape.
We’re closing in on wrapping up the pitch, and then it’s off to the submissions races!
Feel free to like the project’s Facebook page for updates and first-look access at the production of the series.

I know, I’m as stunned by this gorgeous cover as you are. There are few that can evoke a myriad of emotions with a single image, and one of those brilliant artists is W. Scott Forbes.
Currently in need of a home, Tim and I hope to have this project ready to pitch to various publishers in the coming months. Regardless, we’re both really excited to be tackling our first vampire story! We’re confident it’s nothing that you’ve read before, and hope our small creative contribution to the genre makes a big splash when the times comes.
Stay tuned, but in the meantime go check out the project’s Facebook page for first-look access at the production of the series.

I wanted to share a very special preview of the new cover for my series After Houdini. I’ve revised the title due to the fact that I don’t want readers to be confused with the fact that the protagonist on the cover is NOT Harry Houdini, but his son Josef.
Thanks to some solid critiques on the first cover from friends in the industry, Kevin and I decided to go with this more dynamic approach.
The beautiful colors are done by none other then Falynn K.
The revised logo design is handled by international heartthrob Ryan Ferrier.
We’ve received very strong interest from some big publishers, so check back here for further developments.

For all that may have missed it, Strange Love – Part 14 went up on Friday. I discuss my first experience attending a convention as a registered pro, and managing my expectations, which is quite fitting considering the weekend I just had attending Emerald City Comic Con–more on that down the line.
Hope you enjoy Part 14 and thanks for reading!
