Bug Slugger #2 – Out Today!

Despite the news leading me to believe that the entire world is on fire, I’ve found a ray of sunshine. The second issue my action/comedy comic book BUG SLUGGER—co-created with one of my favorite humans, Loch Ness—has arrived on digital shelves, and is available both on ComiXology and in PDF format.

If you missed the first issue, fear not! Below you’ll find a FREE 7-page preview. If you dig it, hop on board with Bug Slugger’s zany first volume: Cricket Army.

So what’s BUG SLUGGER about?

A hero armed with a powerful and mysterious slap bracelet must defend his city against a siege of human-sized crickets led by an ill-tempered narwhal!

This time, in chapter 2…

Having struck a tentative alliance to rid the city of crickets, Kameron and Koshiko’s investigation into the insect invasion leads them to a super-secret bug fight club. There, the Bug Slugger finds himself drafted into the competition while Koshiko uncovers Hellen’s heinous intentions.

Secret origins are revealed as the plot thickens into a consistency similar to that of Nutella! Peppered with crotch hits, bathroom brawls, and mind-blowing reveals, this issue has something for everyone!

This comedy comic book is my love letter to 90’s culture, the Power Rangers, and over-the-top action films. If you dig the preview and would like to support myself and artist Loch Ness, you can pick up the full issue for just $1.99 on the following platforms.

New Comic Series: Bug Slugger #1

I just wanted to take a moment to wish everyone well in the strange times we currently find ourselves facing.

Being at home leaves many to turn to the arts for stress relief and entertainment, whether that be books, TV, films, videogames, or comics. In fact, I wanted to do my part to share some creativity, so I’ve released the first issue of my new comic book series, BUG SLUGGER, in hopes that it may bring a smile to your face. I can’t help but feel that laughter is something sorely needed in the world at this moment.

The first issue of Bug Slugger came out today and I wanted to share a FREE 7-page preview with you, because if you dug the oddball humor of my other comics, such as Unit 44, Awry, or Hipster vs. Rednecks, then chances are you’re going to enjoy Bug Slugger as well.

So what’s BUG SLUGGER about?

But when The Kamereon comes across another bracelet-powered bug sluggin’ vigilante, he must decide if they are friend or foe while he still has a city left to call home.

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!

 

Maintenance arrives on ComiXology!

I had a birthday Monday. It was awesome. But the real icing on my birthday cake came today when MAINTENANCE, a one-shot comic I co-created with artist Stan Chou hit ComiXology.

Maintenance_AA_CoverSeriously… you can get 24 pages of robotic awesomeness for just $0.99.

Get it right here.

You don’t want miss a robot, newly endowed with human emotions takes a deadly romp through the bowels of a technology company.

Inspired by a little bit of Blade Runner, a little bit of Black Mirror and a lot of M.C. Escher, Stan and I put this together a couple years ago, originally serialized via my webcomic project, Innovation. We’re now unleashing it on a whole new audience by collecting it into a single book!

I’m also printing these up for some conventions, so keep an eye on the web store if you’d rather hold it in your non-robotic hands.

Big thanks to Stan for taking the journey with me on this one. He’s not only super talented, but one of the nicest people I know.

Enjoy!

Hipsters Vs. Rednecks lands on ComiXology!

HvR_Cover_web_thumbAfter debuting in September in print and as a PDF download, Hipsters Vs. Rednecks, my 24-page comedy one-shot co-created with artist Tyler Kelting landed today on the ComiXology platform!

Get it right here for just $1.99: www.comixology.com/Hipsters-Vs-Rednecks-1/digital-comic/313537

If you’re in the mood for some laughs, then this might just be the perfect holiday gift for yourself or a friend.

HvR is the story of an outsider, Sloane, who, following the apocalypse, finds herself caught in the middle of an ongoing war between the remaining two factions… the hipsters and the rednecks. Taken in by the hipster clan just as they suffer their biggest attack to date, Sloane must take a stand if she hopes to make it out of New Brooklyn alive.

Here’s what the reviewers thought of HvR:

“If you don’t absolutely love this comic, you are a fool” – ComicsBastards.com

“Seriously, Hipsters vs Rednecks is Adult Swim at its best. More to the point, Hipsters vs Rednecks is what Adult Swim SHOULD be doing.” – ComicsOnline.com

“Read it now so you can tell everyone you knew about it before it was cool.” – ScreenGonzo.com

“If the idea behind this one shot comic sounds even remotely interesting to you, then you should be thinking about reading this comic; it’s a fun look at what could be a disastrous future should these two factions remain in order to rebuild the human race.” – GraphicPolicy.com

I was worried this might be sort of a one-note joke, which wouldn’t be so bad for a one-shot comic, so I’m glad it was actually a pretty damn funny book.” – TheGravyAge.com

This comic is a quick, irreverent read that’s sure to make anyone who rolls their eyes at hipsters or rednecks laugh until it hurts.

Look at it this way… the more copies we sell, the higher the potential for a sequel, so do Tyler and I a solid and help spread the word!
