Chris Peterson‘s (@vsrobts) badass illustration that bleeds awesomesauce says it all. Great creator-owned comics embody this image.

Ready my latest Strange Love installment here.

My LIVE interview on @graphicpolicy’s RADIO SHOW!

Monday, November 12th, 2012

Hey All!

I wanted to share a live radio interview I had with the awesome comic book site Graphic Policy. I’ve had the opportunity to get to know Brett Schenker (Editor/Creator of Graphic Policy) over the past couple years and he’s been a huge supporter of creator-owned comics. He invited me onto the show to discuss both Southern Dog and Cobble Hill #1.

If anyone wants to follow a comic book site with substance, subscribe to Graphic Policy. They not only tackle the traditional reviews, but also focus on political aspects within the industry. Could not recommend them more.

Check out the radio show here.

Cobble Hill goes under the knife!

Sunday, November 4th, 2012

Hey All,

I wanted to share a rather flattering, but more importantly impressive and impeccably written examination/review of my comic Cobble Hill.

Yannick Morin–staff writer for ComixTribe’s Points of Impact column, and editor on the Image title Epic Kill, takes an extensive look into how I crafted Cobble Hill #1.

Re-examining my own work through someone’s else eyes reminds me of how much my work has improved over the past few years.

I want to give a huge thanks to Yannick for his attention to detail, and displaying his own wealth of knowledge on how to create great storytelling within the sequential arts.

Strange Love – Part 8 is now up @multiversitycom

Saturday, November 3rd, 2012

Hey All,

For all of my New York/East Coast friends, I’m glad to hear you’re all safe and dry. This past week has been a very strange experience as I haven’t left Brooklyn in over a week due to the torrential superstorm known as Sandy.

I’m lucky to be living in a spot that was clear of the danger zones on Monday night. However, all subways from Brooklyn to Manhattan are currently underwater.

In the meantime, I did manage to write the newest installment of Strange Love. I will admit that it’s by far the most personal thing I’ve ever written, let alone posted for public viewing. I hope it’s just as informative as the previous posts, and apologies if it’s a bit of a downer in parts. Sometimes you can’t avoid writing about sad things when they’re so heavily wrapped up in the truth.

Thanks for reading.
