DEAR DINOSAUR - Volume IV: Jumping the Megalodon!

So, I have to apologize for the fact that I've dropped the ball on posting commentary for Dear Dinosaur!  Last week's strip, which was the finale for Volume IV was posted without commentary because I was on vacation in Ohio.  Sorry y'all!  I'll add a few tidbits in with this week's commentary, but first you need to head over to to check out the final inked cover for Dear Dinosaur Volume IV!

DEAR DINOSAUR - Morally and Financially Bankrupt

I totally dropped the ball last week on the commentary, which is a damn shame because of the awesome work by Ben Holliday and Adam Wollet on the special Dear Dinosaur page they put together.  I really hope y'all dug it and you should definitely check out their work!  Ben and Adam are part of the creative team behind my upcoming all ages graphic novel OREN TAKES FLIGHT and both have HUGE futures in the industry!  Now, on to this week!  Dear Dinosaur takes a major turn this week as the Shadowy Board of Editorial Figures drops a major bomb on our hero!  Head over to to check it out, then head back here for the commentary!

MAKIN' LISTS MONDAYS! - Top 10 Halloween Heroes!

Last week we looked at my favorite antagonists from movies best fit for Halloween.  Whether the films were psychological thrillers or frightening horrors or somewhere in between, they all featured great “villains.”  This week, I’m turning that around and looking at my favorite “Halloween Heroes,” the best of the best protagonists from films best experienced in the Halloween season.

I’m going to follow the “Gozer Rule” again for this countdown.  Last week I let Gozer stand in for all of the antagonists of the film Ghostbusters because it was too hard to narrow it down.  This time, I’ll let the most memorable representative cover the entire group so that I’m not struggling to fit all four Ghostbusters in a ten issue countdown.

MAKIN' LIST MONDAYS!: Top 10 Movie Monsters

Just pretend I posted this yesterday as I had originally intended.

Halloween season is upon us and I have to admit, I am a little torn.  I really love crazy scary movies and things, but at the same time, I have these insane neighbors that build this massive Halloween display ever year.  This may sound pretty awesome until you find out that they play “spooky” music loud enough that I can hear it in my house, over my TV, every night in October.  It’s the worst and it totally ruins Halloween for me, which makes me sad.  To recapture my love for the haunted holiday, I’m going to do a handful of Top 10 lists that cover my love for horror movies that you should enjoy every October.  First up, Top 10 Movie Monsters!

See me at MCBA FallCon in St. Paul, MN on Oct 5th!

Hey y’all!  If you came out to the Burlington Public Library over the weekend to see me, thank you so much!  I had a blast at their annual Comic Book Day event and hope that I’m invited back next year!  (Plus I had an incredible lunch at Jerry’s Main Lunch, which is a tiny little diner that has been part of Burlington for decades—best fried pork tenderloin ever).

If you didn’t get to meet me this past weekend, and you live within driving distance from the Twin Cities area in Minnesota, you are in luck!  I’ll be attending the Midwest Comic Book Association’s annual FallCon comic book convention on Saturday October 5th!  I had a blast at the show last year and at MCBA’s SpringCon this past May.  Come see me, as well as the other incredible guests, including guest of honor Mark Waid!  

If you would like to preorder some art, I’d love to draw it in advance!  I only draw the larger pieces as preorders, as well as sketchcard sets.  If you want to order one, email me at!  Below is a list of my prices:

Any character in full glorious color in trading card size!

Six sketchcards centered around a theme!

On a blank sketch cover, I’ll draw any character and write a haiku on the spot! (only $5 if you bring your own cover)

5 x 8 SKETCH - $5
9 x 12 SKETCH - $10
11 x 17 SKETCH - $15
Up to two characters in full color!  I’ll draw 5 x 8 sketches at the show, but larger sizes must be ordered in advance.
