MLP RAINBOW DASH Review on Redheaded Mule

The MY LITTLE PONY MICRO SERIES: RAINBOW DASH #2 issue I wrote lands in stores this week and the good soldier Clarence over at Redheaded Mule just posted up a review. And this one’s not the usual thing, it’s this rad little poem. It calls me verbose, which is sadly a word I wear with loquacious pride. I’m happy with this review, truly. It ‘gets’ everything I wanted to do with the issue.

FATHERHOOD Review On Multiversity Comics

Matt Meylikhov over at Multiversity Comics wrote a really well thought out review of FATHERHOOD.

Read the review right now!

fatherhood_final1_cover

He raises some great points, and rightfully praises the art team, and he calls my writing powerful. Like it could tear a phone book in half, perhaps.

Enjoy.

THE DEVIL IS IN THE DETAILS Review on Geek Hard

Andrew Young over at Geek Hard was kind enough to review THE DEVIL IS IN THE DETAILS over on his site:

I was glad to see him enjoy the many aspects of Daredevil we uncovered and focused on. The best part is he says this is his new favourite Sequart book and that means the world to me (ppst, it’s my favourite, too).

You can buy THE DEVIL IS IN THE DETAILS on Amazon right now.

Enjoy.

Baby Lindsay 2.0 Loves Iron Fist

Hey all, I put out the call for sketches for Baby Lindsay 2.0 who’s a bit over 3 weeks old now and wow did some of you cool people come up with the goods. I may have hinted that the little one would dig some Iron Fist and you guys went bananas and I cannot thank you enough for it. Truly brightened up an already supanova month. So, without further ado, here is the good stuff – and THANK YOU everyone who send something in.

Baby Lindsay 2.0 - sami kivela

Sami Kivela is a straight up dude, art demon, and guy who you’ll all love even more when our #beachnoir drops – THE DARKEST WAVES

Getting these was such a blessing and I know baby Lindsay 2.0 will love them forevermore…right?

Truly, blessed, thank you.

LEE – A Prose Anthology About Lee Marvin

Seriously, what a killer concept. A book of short stories about a fictional life of Lee Marvin. As soon as I heard about this stupendously thought out offering from Crime Factory, I knew I was in. It’s just too rad to be missed. But then to have the opportunity to also have a short story in there, whoa, man, hell yes, please. A murder of fine crime writers contribute stories from Lee’s youth to his storied movie career. This is one hell of a gonzo trip.

I wrote “And The Gunslinger Followed“, a tale of old man Lee Marvin racing against the devil. It was a pulpy mess to write.

LEE – buy the paperback through Crime Factory now for $15 +postage.

Also, enjoy the cover for the rest of your life.

Ghost Town Begins – Solicitations

Ghost Town is an ongoing series from Action Lab Entertainment’s Danger Zone mature imprint. I am a sub-creator and the main writer.

GT_01_col_sm

The first issue is in Previews now and drops in May – you can get it with the Diamond Order Code MAR130765. You should preorder it, set it up for pull at your LCS, or set an alarm to buy it on ComiXology – whatever works for you. I didn’t write this issue, I start with the next issue, but Dave Dwonch writes and Justin Greenwood illustrates the entire beginning. Everything is set up in this larger issue and it’s a must read.

Ghost Town began as an idea from Rob Ruddell – a very good, smart, and passionate man. He shared it with his friend Dave Dwonch and they started teasing it out. After some excited chatter, the chassis for a great comic series was solidified. Rob wasn’t going to write the book and Dave is stretched in a million different directions through his role at Action Lab so a writer was sought to steward the book to life. I was honoured to be asked. Finding out my recent collaborator Daniel J Logan – we’d worked on shorts for the Oxymoron HC, a back up in Grim Leaper, and a free Challenger Comics tale – was the ongoing artist and artist extraordinaire Justin Greenwood was on covers only made it more sweet.

The next months were spent with me breaking the story further – oh, boy, do we have a grand plan – and writing the first scripts. I’m very far along in where I’ve written this book and while I’m excited as for where it goes I am really amped for my opening arc to drop.

Ghost Town #1 is where it all starts, and it’s full colour for $3.99 – and while it’s billed as a miniseries, we are simply going for the ‘Hellboy method’ and having roving minis make up the entirety of the book. The premise is simple, and great, terrorists get a time machine and some bombs and they create mayhem. It’s a wicked concept and we take it by the end of the issue and ground it hard. Once this issue sets up everything, I come in with a three issue arc starting with #2. My arc builds our main character, Nate, and the new locale of the Rad – somewhere between The Wire and a flat out urban dystopia. If you know me, you’ll know Nate’s world is going to be tested and it’ll be a wild ride along the way. My pitch for the end of this arc was a bold move but one I think helped me completely land this gig. It’s something else.

If you like hard characters in a harder world constantly tested by each other and unfortunate circumstances, all while the sci fi threat of time travelling bombs makes people even more desperate and nasty then Ghost Town is for you. We are planning great character moments amidst some seriously high action. Daniel J Logan will be the breakout star with his art and Brian V Dyck’s colours are pretty damn superb.

Preorder the book so shops know you want it and that they should push it with other fans of awesome in their store. You can read the first six pages of #1, as well as some other cool Danger Zone previews in this free PDF sampler.

If you’ve got any questions about the book just hit me up. Otherwise, I’ll see you in the Ghost Town this May for the beginning of something brutal.
