I wrote it, Tim Lattie took care of the art, and we can't wait for everyone else to get a look.
The comic I wrote for Mad Cave Studios is finally available for pre-order, with the first issue scheduled to hit on June 08, 2022!
I worked with Stelladia (on linework and color), Micah Myers (on letters), Natasha Alterici (cover art) and Erica Schultz (editing!)
Between us, I think we put together a pretty fun little fantasy book about a trio of siblings that leave Primaterra for the strange and fantastic world of... Seattle.
Check out the first cover below--and give the phone number a call!
Coming this September, from Insight Editions, the Official Ghostbusters Cookbook features recipes by Jenn Fujikawa (there's some tasty stuff in there) while I handle the in-universe text, which is... well, you'll have to wait and see how we weave characters from the Ghostbusters franchise into this book.
All current details--including ways to pre-order--can be found at this link!
I look forward to sharing more as soon as I can!
2021 was a heck of a busy year for me.
I wrote a bunch of comics -- some of which aren't even coming out until next year -- started a couple of prose projects, two of which are ALSO due out next year, more on that as soon as I can tell you, and I kept up on my 2x weekly Downside comic over on Patreon.
I also put together a Downside collection, now available on Amazon.
...But there's a catch: Amazon's POD service is stretched thin by a graphics-heavy book. There are occasional printer lines. Drives me nuts (and they're never in the same place in the book, owing to the print-on-demand nature) but it's the best I can do for the book! Fulfilling a Kickstarter is a bit beyond me right now. (I may try another book in the future, however. We'll see.)
So the hardcopy is a little iffy -- but the KINDLE version looks great!
You can find it here: DOWNSIDE Vol. 1 @ Amazon
If you give it a try and it makes you chuckle, please leave a review.
My second bit of new is that I complete an 8 page Nick Landime story to celebrate the character's (and my comic career's!) 20th anniversary. More news on that this coming spring!
And of course 2022 will also see:
More Beast Wars
GI Joe (inspired by the Sunbow cartoons)
An Alien Samurai Dinosaur Warriors book (based on Dimitri Vegas' concept)
Potions, Inc from Mad Cave
...And a few others I can't speak of yet!
I hope 2022 is safe, healthy, and prosperous for you and yours.
Take care out there!
End of 2021
One of the things I have in the prose tier of my Patreon is an essay series on comics advice I've given when asked.
I've posted one a few months back on this blog, and hey, it's time for another! After the jump, you'll see the best way to improve your work as a storyteller. (As noted, I'm not the only one to shout this piece of advice from the rooftops. It's as rock solid as you'll find!)
