Chambers Trade Paperback Pre-Order: Last Call

We’re so close!

A week from today the trade paperback (print edition) of my crime-fiction comic CHAMBERS will be released!

There’s still time to pre-order from publisher Arcana Studio and the beautiful 100+ page collection will be shipped to your door upon release on March 26.

As this is my first trade collection that I’m not paying to print, so obviously I’m very excited. If you haven’t read the book, this will be the best way to do it. Along with artist Kristian Rossi and colorist Kefas Armando, I crafted a gut-wrenching tale of dirty cops and bloody revenge. If you’re a fan of noir or gritty stories based in the real world, then this comic will be right up your alley.

Do you like the movie Die Hard?
Trick question! Who doesn’t like Die Hard?
Loved that? You’ll dig this.

If digital is more your speed then you can currently pick up the individual issues or the collected edition from ComiXology for $1.99 or $5.99, respectively.

Interview: Vodka O’Clock Podcast

A few weeks ago I was a guest on the Vodka O’Clock podcast where I chatted with host Amber Love about the character relationships of my crime-fiction comic book CHAMBERS, the process of collaborating with a zillion different artists on my sci-fi webcomic INNOVATION and the trials and tribulations that came along with Kickstarting my upcoming sci-fi/comedy comic, UNIT 44.

The episode is now online, and if you’d like to spend an hour listening to me talk about the genesis of those projects, explain how I linked up with my collaborators or if you’d just like to relax to the dulcet tones of my voice while on your morning commute, you can download the podcast from iTunes or Stitcher radio.

What Ever Happened to: The Temporal

I decided to start a new segment on the blog where I can talk about a little bit about projects of mine that, for one reason or another, aren’t getting as much “screen time” as some of the others.

Whether these projects are on hiatus, soon to be released or simply as dead as parachute pants, I thought I’d given an update which will help get us all excited for things coming up over the course of 2014.

Sounds like a blast, right?
Of course it does!

So, let’s get started with — what ever happened to…

Temporal

THE TEMPORAL is a 32-page sci-fi one-shot that I wrote back in 2011 (way, way back) and was the project that originally brought me together with one of my favorite collaborators, Kristian Rossi, who you may recognize as the artist from a little comic book called Chambers. Kristian and I initially connected through DigitalWebbing.com and it was off to the races and the start of a solid friendship.

When you’re looking to break into comics, the first thing you (should) do is go make comics. I hired Kristian to draw this one-and-done story about time travel, science and the ramifications of our decisions and he completed pencils and inks on the book in 2012. Ever since, the book has sat, just waiting for its time to shine.

As other projects demanded time and attention (and money), I strayed away from getting colors added to this book in order to get some publisher-backed projects out the door. In 2013 I sat down and lettered The Temporal, so what we have now is a complete, 32-page black and white comic book.

In November, I launched my free sci-fi webcomic, Innovation, that centers around extreme scientific research and the pros and cons that come along with advancing technology. It’s since become very clear to me that Innovation was continuing many of the themes that I had established in The Temporal, so I decided to fold the book into the same universe and the one-shot will be a lead-off to the second story arc that I have planned.

Where, how and when can you get it? That’s yet to be determined, but it’s awesome having this completed project “in the pocket,” as it’s something that I can unleash if/when my publishing schedule slows down. One thing is for sure, though — it will see light in 2014. It’s long overdue, and I can’t wait to see what you think of it.
