WWE Survivor Series Predictions!

It’s SURVIVOR SERIES time!  The “Thanksgiving tradition” was one of my favorites growing up and I am so excited to see that we’ll get a traditional Survivor Series matchup in this year’s show.   Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like we have much else going on as only three matches were announced prior to this week’s shows.  Yikes.  That being said, there is quite a bit to be excited about here in the matches that were announced, plus it is absolutely free to new WWE Network subscribers!  This could be a very “interesting” PPV to say the least, so hit the jump to see my thoughts!

MATINEE ECLECTICA now available via Comixology!

I am incredibly proud to announce that my self-published collection of short comics, MATINEE ECLECTICA is now available via Comixology!  I originally released the book back in 2011 via my “publishing arm” Dirty Third Comics, but it is now available digitally for the first time!  The comic features 10 stories covering a wide range of genres and featuring art from some of the most exciting young artists in the industry, many of whom have gone one to work for major publishers!

MAKIN' LIST MONDAYS: 2014-15 Network Television "First Look"

The 2014-15 network television is in full swing and I am completely blown away by how m any incredible shows are on the air this year.  There has been no better time in history to own a DVR (in the decade or so history of the DVR) as every single night of the week is overflowing with incredible programs.  Rather than waiting until mid-season to breakdown the best shows I’m watching, I thought I’d offer up a special “first look” Top 10 as we are now a handful of episodes into each show on the major networks.  Hit the jump to see what shows I think you should be watching!

LOOT CRATE Review - October 2014: FEAR

After some pressing from a good friend, I joined Loot Crate this month and, as a fun experiment, I thought I would unbox and review this month's haul for all of you to enjoy.  For those of you unfamiliar, Loot Crate is a monthly surprise box filled with goodies that nerds will enjoy.  Each month centers around a different theme and all of the contents somehow relate to that.  The October Loot Crate is themed "Fear," so I had high hopes for all sorts of monstrous goodies inside.  How did it rate? Hit the jump to find out.

WWE Hell in a Cell Predictions!

Last month’s Night of Champions was pretty forgettable, despite having a ton of momentum coming off of an incredible Summer Slam.  We are now just a few days away from HELL IN A CELL, which will be  the first pay-per-view of the Brock Lesnar World Champion era without a World Championship match on the card (the first of many, I assume, thanks to Lesnar’s limited schedule).  The card was thrown together pretty quickly on this one, but there are a ton of awesome matches lined up.  My expectations started pretty low this month, but after this week’s Raw, I’m completely psyched for this weekend’s show.  Hit the jump to see my thoughts!

The ComplEAT Dear Dinosaur update (and cover)!

Friends!  For those of you that backed the Kickstarter, or perhaps are simply interested in purchasing a copy, The ComplEAT Dear Dinosaur trade paperback is currently being wrapped up! Production guru Steve Bryant (whose comics you should also read) is finalizing the pages and colorist BJ Humphrey recently completed work on the cover design for the book!  I'm planning to have the book printed in the next few weeks and all copies shipping out starting in October and November.  I hope you are as happy with the final product as I am!

As a special treat, below you will see the process images for the cover design!

First, I drew the covers on 11 x 17 bristol board in  black and white.

Then I provided BJ with some very poor reference, all done in Microsoft Paint
Then BJ took my horrible choices and made them beautiful!
