HARDCOVER!! This is a dream come true right here, y’all. You guys don’t realize how stoked I am about a hardcover version of Los Muertos! That was the original plan but it was gonna be expensive as fuuuuuck. So stoked RAComicDirect allows you to do just a few copies. This is one thing off my “making comics bucket list”. And the countdown to making hardcover versions of all of my books begins…FUCK MAN I CAN’T WAIT TO MAKE A DOC UNKNOWN HARDCOVER
Helped myself to some product from the Challenger Comics stable today.
All come highly recommended.
Los Muertos by Fabian Rangel Jr and Juan Romera is a great supernatural revenge story with flashes of noir, Mexican folklore and good old fashioned gunplay. There’s a real sense of place here, with the story winding itself tightly before springing into action and not letting up. Juan’s art is really complimented by the colours and Rachel Deering’s letters, both serving to highlight the otherworldly nature to the things lurking in the shadows.
Orc Girl by Paul Allor and Thomas Boatwright is a beautifully told fantasy tale. It has a great sense of wonder, youth and vigour to it and it just tugs at the heartstrings. Not only that but there are four backup stories here too, two from Clockwork Volume 1 and two from the forthcoming second volume. All of the strips are great masterclasses in writing succinct and emotionally affecting shorts.
Tiger Lawyer #2 by Ryan Ferrier, Matt McCray and Vic Malhotra continues the mix of zany schtick and broody noir set out in the first issue. It’s a testament to the character that he can exist in both spheres equally as well. The pin ups in the back attest to this too. Can’t wait for the third issue.
All of this for $4.00 (I purchased the digital copies).
Hey! So in case you didn’t know I have a horror double feature up for sale at Challenger Comics. I’m really stoked to be included with such an amazing group of comic book creators. You can download my new comic for the low ass price of ONE DOLLAR or if you’re an old man like me and prefer print you can order it for 5 dollars and it’ll show up signed by me and stuff.
If you like like Tales From The Crypt and Creepy I think you’ll dig this.
Hey, y’all! Just thought I’d post an update about the fact that I’ll be at NYCC this weekend!
This is the first time I’ll be attending this con and I couldn’t be more excited. I’m finally meeting the 215 Ink gang! I’ll be at their table (2279) on Saturday from 12-1 and on Sunday from 3-4. I’ll be signing copies of EXTINCT and FALL. :)
I’ll also be at the FUBAR table on Sunday (not sure what time yet) to sign copies of FUBAR: American History Z (I have a short comic in it).
So yeah, if you’re going to this huge insanely awesome convention than come by and say hi!
Ok, so I haven’t posted on here in a while and for that I’m sorry. I’ve been busy hanging out with my son (a year old next week!), and fixing up our old house to sell it, and buying a new house (I’m typing this from my very own office!), and saving money for a family trip to NYCC next month, so money is tight (Christmas is coming up, too!) and I haven’t been able to release a few comics I had wanted to. Either way, here’s a few updates about some of the comics that I’ve written and will see a 2013 release.
I’m really excited to have a story in this amazing anthology, and was extremely happy to have the art chores handled by one of my favorite artists, a guy I’ve been wanting to work with since last year, Jason Copland. The story we have in here is called,”Our Own Wars” (named after a Small Brown Bike album). This comic is probably my favorite short story I’ve written. Well, either this one or “The Ghost and the Time Machine” with Ryan Cody. Anyway, be on the lookout for this book in Previews soon!
“Stinky” is an 8 page horror story with art by Valentin Ramon that will be the second half of the horror flip book one shot that also includes “When The Evil Came” (script by me, art by Cody Schibi). Again, I had wanted to have this flip book, as well as an all ages flip book, as well as Los Muertos in time for Wizard World Austin, but sometimes life gets in the way. This comic and Rumble still need to be lettered. I’m hoping for an early 2013 release. This horror one-shot is gonna be awesome!
