Little Bird

Thursday, March 14th, 2019


Darcy Van Poelgeest and Ian Bertram’s Little Bird #1 released this week from Image Comics. It is a fantastical beautiful nightmare with mystery and oddities abound. Do yourself a favor and pick up a copy.

The above is my depiction of a couple (or three) characters from the debut issue drawn while listening to Angels of Light.

Sub-Mariner

Sunday, February 3rd, 2019


A comic collection came into the shop where I work recently that contained a low grade copy of Marvel’s Fantasy Masterpieces #11.

The book was too rough to sell (there was a Band-Aid stuck to one of the interior pages that had probably been stuck there since the book came out in 1966) so I ripped out this awesome page from the Namor story and brought it home to redraw.

The original (pictured below) from Sub-Mariner Comics #34 was written and drawn in 1954 by Bill Everett and is a beautifully laid out page with some snappy Namor dialogue. Bill Everett was amazing. In addition to creating Namor Everett worked in comics for a number of publishers including Atlas/Marvel doing hero and horror books from the late 1930’s until he died in 1973. Check him out if you’re not familiar.

New World

Tuesday, October 30th, 2018


This is my take on Stella from a great comic book called New World. Stella is a cop in a version of the Earth where the U.S. has just endured a second Civil War. Cops are celebrities on tv with the viewing public deciding by text vote whether or not they show mercy or cruelty to those whom they arrest.

It sounds bleak but it’s also fun and sexy and surreal. Like I said, great book.

Defenders of the Planets #2

Thursday, September 6th, 2018

The second issue to the fantastical sci-fi barbarian epic is here! This issue finds Orion and his fellow Defenders on a quest to stop the evil Zardoom from his plans of conquest and murder. Will the Queen of Opia be Zardoom’s next victim?

Also features the origin of Strongarm and guest appearances by a slew of weird comic book characters from the past, present… AND FUTURE!

Story by Matt Brassfield and myself! Available here! Don’t miss out!

Squad Car APA #3

Tuesday, March 27th, 2018


Issue three of the Squad Car APA features an awesome lineup of artists including Matt Jones, Ty Kinard, Ian Morris, Billy McKay, Joseph Tenney, Harrison Bridges, Dustin Trimble and myself.

Some color pages, some black and white, featuring comics, illustrations and experiments galore. There are even a few mini-comics embedded into the book! It is a great anthology that I’m honored to be a part of.

Thanks to Joseph and Matt for assembling this crazy thing.

The print run on this book is tiny and I’m not sure if copies are still available but you can definitely send a few well concealed bucks to Joseph Tenney at 913 Eastview St. Shelby, NC. 28152 for some quality comics.
