2 Page Comic

Some forum friends and I did a little comic challenge: in two pages tell either a post-apocalyptic tragic transformation story or a splatterpunk or space opera switching-of-roles/man-vs.-world story. I didn’t have much time to put into mine but in lieu of a real update, here you go:


Crossposted from the Next Town Over blog. All apologies. As you may have seen via Twitter, I’ve thrown in with DRAWMORE INC. and their new, annual anthology project, NOBODIES. This was mostly because Jon Cairns was doing it and my life is pretty much a protracted quest to be as cool as he is. My […]

SCROLL 02: Quests

The new SCROLL‘s primarily concerned with the 25th anniversary of Dragon Quest, exploring the origin of the JRPG along with a comprehensive stroll through the DQ series.

This is trickier than battle comics and collaborations I’ve done before; it’s really hard to shape a story one page at a time. Good exercise.

My Work Isn’t Real Unless I Show it to You

“For some reason, my work isn’t real unless I show it to you.  Everything we’re working on won’t be seen for months; it’s excruciating.  I’m writing constantly, and I have nothing to show for it.” Jerry Holkins wrapped up the newspost that accompanied today’s [jaw-dropping] Automata comic like this. Man, did it resonate with me. […]
