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.
