New Comic Series: Awry

Greetings, friends!

I’m excited to announce that I have a new sci-fi/humor series being released Wednesday, October 9 (tomorrow) called AWRY!

The talented Graeham Jarvis served as artist, colorist, and co-pilot for the series which we spent the past few years putting together.

So what’s this crazy book all about?

It took 10 years for the Phyllos to reach the black hole Formax-C, and in that time, the crew of four came to loathe one another. But when the mission suddenly goes awry, the astronauts must overcome their differences and work as a team if they hope to survive an unforgiving alien world and make it back home.

The series is being published exclusively in digital format by Action Lab Comics, through its “mature readers” imprint, Danger Zone. In an attempt to satiate the binge-readers out there, all 4 issues of the series will release on the same day ($2.99 each), and a week later we’ll drop the 90-page collected edition ($5.99).

Awry is available for preorder on ComiXology and Amazon to be read on your favorite digital devices.

I hope you’ll check it out and support not only me, but a great publisher and a wonderful artist who is going to blow you away with these pages.

Thanks for checking it out!

Free Comic Book Day 2018!

We’re just 5 days away from my favorite day of the year — FREE COMIC BOOK DAY!

I urge all of you to visit your local comic shop(s) on Saturday, May 5 to pick up some free comics from some of the best publishers in the business. Remember, they’ve paid some steep cash to bring you these free comics, so be sure to say thanks and help keep the lights on by dropping some cash on that one graphic novel you’ve had your eye on.

I’ll be celebrating the day at Comics, Cards & Collectables in Canton, OH! I’ll be there from 10 am until my feet just can’t take it anymore.

While my comics aren’t free, they are cheap!

I’ll be selling and signing my graphic novels Unit 44 and The Undoubtables for $15 each, as well as the one-shots Edison, Maintenance, and the always-popular Hipsters Vs. Rednecks for $4 a pop. Also on hand will be dozens of comics from the Alterna Comics newsprint line available for just $1.50 each!

Edison #1 available NOW!

The first issue of my new comic book series EDISON is available NOW!

One part James Bond, one part MacGyver, inventor Thomas Alva Edison uses his ingenuity and creativity to combat the scientific threats of the late 1880s.

Grab it digitally from ComiXology for just $0.99 or in print from my web store for $4!

This book is the culmination of one of my silliest ideas… what if we took the greatest scientific minds of the late 1800s (when most of the world’s technology was taking a significant leap forward) and clash them together as action heroes and villains in an alternate history setting?

They’re not superheroes, but rather the kind that use their minds, intelligence, and higher-than-average intellect to fight for science supremacy!

The first issue was drawn by the wonderful Giovanni Capurro with interior colors by Andrew Pate and we’re jumpstarting the series with a full 24 science-fueled pages! Get to know Thomas Edison, his bumbling assistant William Joseph Hammer, as well as the villainous Nikola Tesla!

Moving forward, each 12-page issue will have a different artist to help chronicle Edison’s adventures as he faces new adversaries, all of whom want to steal the title of “world’s smartest man (or woman!)”

Come for the action, stay for the jokes. I’d like to think that if Thomas Edison were still alive, he’d totally love this comic book. I hope you do, too.

Free Comic: Compromised

Do you ever STOP being a spy?

This is the question explored in a the 3-page comic “Compromised,” available to read for FREE right now! Click here to check it out!

Written and lettered by me, I teamed with Orlando-based artist Joe Catapano, who handled pencils and inks, and brought a wonderful moodiness to the whole story.
