You May Already Be A Winner now in print!

My 5-page crime comic, YOU MAY ALREADY BE A WINNER, that I finished back in February is now available in print!

In fact, now that I think about it, this is my first comic to be officially printed by a publisher. That’s kind of exciting in itself!

Support both myself, story artist Jacob Warrenfeltz and independent comics by picking up your copy at the GrayHaven Comics store. This black and white anthology packs in 32 pages of crime-themed shorts for just $3.

There’s a great group of editors working over at GrayHaven so please take a few moments to check out their other offerings and consider buying additional titles. They’re giving up-and-coming creators great opportunities and encouragement, so consider supporting them by checking out the excellent books that they release on a regular basis.

Next month, they’ll debut a 3-page comic I wrote, entitled TIMELESS in their Sci-Fi 2 anthology. It’s gonna be a fun summer of comics.

Winner Update #2

I last wrote about this comic close to six months ago, so it’s time for an update. GrayHaven Comics, an independent publisher that releases some very fine themed anthologies was kind enough to pick up some of my stories for their 2013 releases. Among them include a sci-fi story, a spy story and a 5-page crime story titled, YOU MAY ALREADY BE A WINNER.

I’ve had many starts and stops with this crime piece, trying to find the right artist to bring it to life. I’m happy to report that Jake Warrenfeltz, the mastermind behind King Ink webcomics has swooped in with an amazing amount of enthusiasm and collaborative ideas. I received the rough panel breakdowns over the weekend, so I thought I’d give you a taste of what’s to come.

This piece will be released on June 15, 2013 in The Gathering, Volume 20 from GrayHaven.

Winner Update #1

I’ve spent a lot of time talking about certain comics that I have coming down the pipeline, but let’s take a moment to introduce a new(ish) story to the website.

The fine folks over at GrayHaven Comics were nice enough to green light three of my pitches for their 2013 books, and while I’ve discussed the progress on the Spy and Sci-Fi stories, I’ve neglected the Crime-themed anthology that they’ll be releasing in February of 2013!

Originally I had pitched them the 5 pages of Chambers that had been completed, but we all know how that turned out. The editor was nice enough to let me re-pitch him after I pulled the story, and what came out of it was a five page comic that I titled YOU MAY ALREADY BE A WINNER. I know… longest title ever. Good thing we’re not paying by the letter around here.

WINNER is a peek into a world (not much unlike our own) where a man delivers the ultimate prize to a stranger in a small, suburban neighborhood.

I know, I know… I lost you at suburb. But remember, this book has a crime theme.

Oh, awesome. You’re back on board!

Artist Jimmy Reyes has signed on to bring this piece to life. You might recognize Jimmy’s work because he’s done a ton of inking over the years on books you’ve probably read. In fact, you’ve seen his lines over the works of Marc Silvestri and David Finch, to name a few.

Enough of my yammering, check out these awesome (rough) panel breakdowns from Jimmy!
