I'm in Diamond's PREVIEWS! 27 - An Anthology from Red Stylo Media and Action Lab!

While the majority of the comics work that I have had published have been either self-published or small press work, I have had two comics that were distributed by the comics juggernaut, Diamond.  Unfortunately, my name was not listed in Diamond's ordering catalog Previews for either piece.  With my first published comics work, a short story in Mark Millar's CLiNT Magazine, my story was not featured in the solicitation.  For my scripting work in Youngblood #78 from Image Comics, I came on board after the book had been solicited.

But that has changed!  My name is finally in Previews!  I have a short story in the upcoming anthology 27 from Red Stylo Media, distributed by Action Lab Comics and my name was listed in the solicitation!  You can check it out in the Action Lab section of the December issue of Previews (in comic shops now).  

27: A Comic Anthology features stories inspired by the infamous "27 Club," musicians that died at age 27, including Jim Morrison, Kurt Cobain, Amy Winehouse, and more!  My story, "Lie in It," was inspired by Kristen Pfaff, the original bassist for rock band Hole. I'm really proud of the story and cannot wait to see it in print!

NEW PROJECT - Kid Nefarious one-shot!

I am very proud to announce that I was asked to write an upcoming one-shot spinoff comic for GLADSTONE’S SCHOOL FOR WORLD CONQUERORS!  Originally published by Image Comics, Gladstone’s School for World Conquerors tells the tells of the superpowered children of the world’s greatest villains as they attend a top secrete academy to hone their powers and learn their skills.  The series was created by Mark Andrew Smith and Armand Villavert. Think of it as Hogwarts for future supervillains.

My one-shot focuses on the lead character of the series Kid Nefarious as he takes on a special extra-credit project that involves fully understanding supervillain ethics.  It is filled with action and my trademark humor, with a few surprises twists that I think everyone will enjoy.  I am very honored to have artist Matthew Weldon, best known for his work on the New Brighton Archelogical Society, drawing my story.  

I hope to have release information soon, but in the meantime, you can familiarize yourself with the world of Gladstone’s by checking out the first volume in print via Amazon or digitally on Comixology!:

EL GUAPO, AGENT OF D.U.M.P. now available on Comixology!

I am really excited to announce that the “pilot” issue of EL GUAPO, AGENT OF D.U.M.P. is now available on Comixology!  El Guapo is a character that I’ve wanted to write for a really long time now and I used this short story as a “proof of concept”—it is a simple and direct introduction to the concepts and characters of the universe including the titular hero, his partners, and his rivals.  I am really excited to have artist Sean Lewis on board as I think he brings a ton of energy and funky style to the story.

Hector Alvarez—Agent El Guapo—was the world’s foremost superspy for the world peacekeeping organization R.U.S.H. … until he was betrayed by one of his own.  Now horribly scarred, El Guapo hides his face under a mask and has been demoted to the bizarre Department for Unusual Menace Protection (D.U.M.P.) where he will tangle with the weirdest threats known to mankind.  Gone is his jet-setting, glamorous lifestyle, replaced now with vampires, chupacabras, and in the case of this pilot issue mad scientists and Nazi grizzly bears.

If the response to this first issue is positive, Sean and I are committed to do more stories featuring these characters in the future.  I really want to get into El Guapo’s battles against his nemeses in the criminal organization The Anchor and his hunt for the R.U.S.H. agents that betrayed him.  You can help bring these bizarre semi-comedic adventures to life by picking up the first issue today, exclusively on Comixology!
