Order NEGATIVE SPACE tpb and CHUM #1 now!

Please :]

Screenshot 2016-01-23 16.02.33NEGATIVE SPACE gets a tpb collection of the whole mini from Dark Horse, feat. my writing, Owen Gieni’s art, and Ryan Ferrier’s letters. It’s the entire story for $14.99 the order code is JAN160171 and I think you’re going to like it. Hell, you might even love it.

NEGATIVE SPACE made the Best of 2015 list at Comic Bastards and Loser City, and reviewers have said:

Greg Silber at Adventures in Poor Taste gave us 9.5/10 [LINK], saying “Negative Space is the most promising new science fiction series I’ve encountered since Saga.”

James Ferguson at Horror Talk gave us 4.5/5 [LINK], saying “Negative Spaceis a damn near perfect first issue.”

Jason at Brutal Gamer gave us 9/10 [LINK], saying “Dark Horse’s newest foray into the world of horror and the supernatural comes along with one of the most interesting main character’s and plot lines that I’ve read pretty much ever.”

Raisa at Florida Geek Scene gave us 9.7/10 [LINK], saying “One of the most engaging, creative, and well-executed books I have read to date.”

Ian Dawe at Sequart stepped in with some love [LINK] saying “I’ve rarely seen a braver book about depression.”

Austin Lanari at Comic Bastards gave us a mighty 5/5 [LINK] saying “I can’t think of another book where the art is this unique and aesthetically pleasing.”

Emma Houxbois at The Rainbow Hub gave us 9/10 [LINK] saying” What they seem to understand better than most is that truly effective horror storytelling isn’t about succumbing to nihilistic impulses, it’s about how harrowing it can be to resist them.”

Gregory L. Reece at Pop Matters gives us 9/10 [LINK] saying “In the midst of all that sadness, however, I find myself laughing through the tears.”

I’m wildly proud of this book, it’s probably the best thing I’ve ever done, and I hope you can get out there, tell your LCS how good it is, or how much you dug it, or how much you want it, and that would be greatly appreciated.

And if you want to know more about the book in detail, scope these interviews about it:

I chat with leo Johnson at Multiversity Comics [LINK]

I chat with Cardner Clark at CBR [LINK]

I chat with Polo Lonergan at Nerd Underground [LINK]

I chat with Alexander Lu at Comics Bulletin[LINK]

We also scored an ace interview with James Leask over at Comics Alliancewhere I got asked some very on point questions, enjoy [LINK]

Screenshot 2016-01-21 15.22.04CHUM #1 begins my surf noir miniseries at ComixTribe with Sami Kivelä art, Mark Dale colours, Nic J Shaw letters, Dan Hill edits, and a reg cover by Sami with a variant cover by Vic Malhotra —>

It’s a 22 page debut issue, with back matter by me, for $3.99 and the order code is: FEB161340

This book is my ode to old Gold Medal crime paperbacks and the sort of things Phillips/Brubaker, and Swierczynski do so well.

Summer Stanwyck is trapped. She tends bar on the island she grew up on, the local cop is about to become her ex-husband, and she’s wasting time screwing the local reefer kingpin. But when a bag full of cash and drugs appears, she sees a way out… and anyone who gets in her way is shark bait.

CHUM is “Pulp Fiction on the sand,” a surf noir story straight off the drugstore paperback rack that will ruin your faith in people.

If you are curious enough to check out more about the book, you can download a Preview Digital Ashcan that’s 24 pages of CHUM glory, feat. 7 story pages, all the covers from Sami, some process pages about inks, and other fantasticality that’ll prove you need this book in your life.

Plus, and let’s get personal here, ComixTribe is a nascent publisher, and one with a quality foot in the door with AND THEN EMILY WAS GONE… and OXYMORON: THE LOVELIEST NIGHTMARE and EXIT GENERATION among their back catalogue. I’m excited to forge ahead with them, and make new ground, and if we do things right I stand to become the best selling ComixTribe book in history. Please help me make that happen.

Get on the horn to your LCS, tell them that ‘surf noir’ is an insta-buy for you and your mates, show them pages of Sami+Mark on art and make them understand this is some pretty business. Or just preorder your book which gives your LCS enough information to know that if one person like it enough to preorder then 2 might dig it on the rack, so they order up.

Indie comics are a game of small numbers, and every damn reader on this book matters to me, so have a think, a cup of tea, and then know you will want this story of a femme fatale doing anything to get off this island.

Summer Stanwyck is trapped. She tends bar on the island she grew up on, the local cop is about to become her ex-husband, and she’s wasting time screwing the local reefer kingpin. But when a bag full of cash and drugs appears, she sees a way out… and anyone who gets in her way is shark bait.

This is a huge launch for me and we aim to go strong with this surf noir mini so we all really hope you dig the vibe and preorder and tell your friends!

If you dug my work on NEGATIVE SPACE at Dark Horse, or HEADSPACE through IDW/Monkeybrain, then I want you to know this book aims to keep the benchmark just as high. Indie books like this live and die on the vine based around glorious peeps like you, dropping a preorder, spreading the word, and being ace. Thank you for stopping by, it is appreciated.

CHUM Free Digital Ashcan Preview

I’m really excited to bring you something rad that is totally free. To throw some blood and guts into the water to fuel the feeding frenzy for CHUM [my new book with Sami Kivela from ComixTribe, launching in April], we have put together a digital ashcan preview that you pretty much need to get your peepers on because it’s full of all the four colour good stuff you want and it is totally FREE.

[Download the CHUM digital ashcan process preview now]

Well, why exactly do you need this digital bonanza in your life? I’ll tell you why.

Included in this PDF blast is:

  • 7 preview pages of the tale to wet your whistle
  • Character bios and sketches on all the fiends of Kingsford Island
  • Art process from Sami Kivela, including page thumbs and inks, as well as our original cover inks
  • All 3 covers for the series in beautiful colours from Sami [they are worth all this malarkey alone]

I’m also just excited that Tyler James at CT wanted to experiment with something like this because I think it’s a rad idea that I’d love to see on other comics that I love. Because I can never help myself when there’s a chance to peek behind the curtain. Plus, it’s digital, so we can kinda do anything with this so if it’s successful, I’d think we would do more like this in the future [which genuinely excites me].

I’m certain you’ll dig this PDF and feel free to share the link with your friends because preorders open soon and the book launches in April and we are all crazy excited for this.

The Process Podcast with Joe Mulvey about SCAM

The Process podcast isn’t really back, it’s just electrified by the juice of Joe Mulvey’s creative flow for this one special episode.

I chat to Joe Mulvey about SCAM, its Kickstarter, the SCAMthology, life, love, and all things creative – go have a listen.

Joe’s a good man and I had fun shooting the breeze with him. I’m honoured to be in the SCAMthology and there’s plenty of time to still back the Kickstarter campaign, so go check all the links out.

Also, a huge thanks to Comics Addiction for hosting the podcast, DeWayne Feenstra for recording and editing with such fine skill, and you for listening to it.

SCAM Ultimate HC Kickstarter is LIVE!

The SCAM Ultimate HC Kickstarter is live right now.

SCAM_COVERS_Scamthology2

Joe Mulvey, the artist/author of the miniseries from ComixTribe, has brought a fun heist series about con men with superpowers in Vegas. It’s like the X-Men meets Ocean’s Eleven.

The HC on offer here collects the entire miniseries in a HC supplemented by the entire SCAMthology of shorts by a death row of talent and rogues (Paul Allor, Jason Ciaramella, John Lees, Nick Pitarra, Joe Eisma, etc). It’s a hell of a deal and ComixTribe always put together sublime little packages so you know the product will look amazing.

Within the SCAMthology, I have a short with Adam Masterman titled THREE CAR MONTE. It’s a car chase adrenaline rush with a kick of an end.

You can go to the Kickstarter here.

You can like the SCAM Facebook page here.

And you can even read my THREE CAR MONTE tale right here, FOR FREE!

Back the project, spread the word, enjoy the scam.
