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?

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! 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.

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: 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!

 

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.

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!

Hipsters Vs. Rednecks – Out now!

The apocalypse has arrived. Hipsters Vs. Rednecks releases today in print and digital formats.

HvR_Cover_web_newIn a post-apocalyptic world, two factions have risen to power—the hipsters, who control New Brooklyn, the last known city, and the rednecks, who will do anything to get inside. When an outsider finds herself caught in the middle of an ongoing war, she must take a stand if she hopes to make it out of New Brooklyn alive.

If you’ve ever wanted to see Hipsters and Rednecks battle it out in comic book form, then do I have a treat for you!

Earlier this year artist Tyler Kelting and I hunkered down and crafted a 24-page comedy one-shot exploring just that idea!

If you read and enjoyed Unit 44, then this irreverent book will provide you with another fix of zany comedy. Grab a free sneak peek of the series and order in your favorite format by visiting www.hipstersvsrednecks.com!

While the comic is currently available exclusively through our site, it has been submitted to additional digital retailers and we’ll announce those platforms as they become available.

I’m happy to report that the comic has bet met by solid reception from reviewers so far! Take a look at what people are saying (click site names for the full review):

“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

“Hipsters vs Rednecks is a fun and funny story that sets up some really interesting things. We have The Walking Dead and some other group survival/post-apocalyptic stories out there, but this is the match-up I never knew I wanted.”ScreenGonzo.com
