I’ve been doing some work for hire the past few months, writing for a AAA video game. If it’s as fun to play as it was to write, it’ll be one of the best open world games ever. Ever.
I squeezed in an hour and and change to work on The Memory Engine once again. I still need to edit the interior pages, but I inked up a working cover. Now to figure out the coloring part…

Inking is finally complete on my latest graphic novel, a gripping tale of international intrigue and mystery that I have yet to name. For now I’ve been calling by the codename “Project Orbiter”, but that’s only because it sounds cooler than “Untitled.”
This is the same 90-page project « Read the rest of this entry »

Thanks to everyone who showed up for Saturday’s signing and to everyone who helped spread the word! Everyone had a great time. I shared the Bookstore Day signing with two current bookbook employees: Jacob Silverman, who was signing his nonfiction book Terms of Service, and Arman Safa, who was signing his novelette, At Ken’s Expense.
If you missed the event, all three books are still available at bookbook! Thanks again!

For thirty years, the World’s Greatest Detective, William Dante, has been in a sanatorium suffering from amnesia. But now his memory is coming back, and he’s facing his greatest mystery: his past.
Check out the five-page preview of THE MEMORY ENGINE I’ve posted in the “sample pages” section of the website! A 90-page black and white graphic novel, THE MEMORY ENGINE is a surreal mystery about a pair of globe-trotting celebrity detectives and the dark secrets they share.
I’m still inking, adding screens, and lettering, but I’m aiming to complete the book by July.

Artist, writer, veteran, musician, martial-artist, Larry Hama is best known as the writer behind the G.I. Joe comics. If you consider the influence of that single property, Larry Hama’s work has impacted and inspired an entire generation of Americans.
Don’t believe me? Do you like ninjas?
How about, uh, America?
That’s what I thought.
Watch this short doc, available on The Splitting Image website, and learn a bit about the man who made you love ninjas and America.

Marvel took to Times Square to announce their new year-long “event,” a rehashing, I mean, relaunching of Secret Wars, by Hickman and Ribic. Just a couple months after Mark Waid makes fun of DC’s Future’s End for copying Days of Future Past, Marvel seems to be making their own version of Crisis on Infinite Earths. How many Thors and Captain Americas are in the above illustration? I see the Daredevil from Gaiman’s Marvel 1602. Who else do you see?
Not only is this hero vs. hero crap the reason why I can’t read X-Men anymore, but I think the multiverse is getting to be as tired and overused in comics as time travel. In comics, time travel and multiverse hopping actually happens more than those well-worn “gimmicks” of characters having a baby or getting married.
Let’s take a moment to be nostalgic about the days gone by of multiverse sci-fi:
