Defenders of the Planets #1 Original Ending

Sunday, April 1st, 2018

Defenders of the Planets #1 was originally intended to be a meditation on the surreal and metaphysical. Matt Brassfield and I have long been interested in debating philosophical themes, particularly the nature of what is or isn’t “real”.

Many a long night we have spent drinking wine and pontificating upon the likelihood of our being merely a thought in the imagination of a being not yet comprehended by our kind.

It is a distinct possibility that our very lives are not actions of our own instigation, but solely the commands of an unseen force.

But in the interest of public approval and to prevent an uprising of the proletariat, the higher-ups at Sparkle Comics insisted we water down the concepts for easier consumption.

Now the comic is little more than a distraction, a temporary musing on this long bus ride that is life.
So, here for the first time is the uncensored ending to Defenders of the Planets issue one.

It is my sincere hope that the few of you who view this page will be inspired to take control of your own lives for the first time and be complacent no more.
Okay, I think that’s it…

Also, be sure to check out issue two coming this August from Sparkle Comics.

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.

Lung

Thursday, March 22nd, 2018


Lung is one of the most powerful musical acts I’ve had the pleasure of seeing perform live. Cincinnati’s Kate Wakefield and Daisy Caplan play with so much vehemence you would think you were hearing a five piece band unleash the fantastic presence that is a Lung gig.

But no, it’s just these two amazing monsters.

Check them out here.
And be sure to see them live. They are something to behold.

Captain America #107

Thursday, February 15th, 2018


Jack Kirby. Can you measure how much he contributed to the world of comics? Probably more than anyone in the history of the medium.

Here is my homage to The King. The expression on Cap’s face the same one I had upon hearing the news that my country had elected Donald Trump as president.

I try not to get too political on this site but he is the worst. Amongst the most racist, sexist, classist, ignorant humans that currently walk the Earth.

It is truly sad to think our friends and neighbors had a hand in getting him into a position of power.

We will survive his presidency but I fear there will be some lasting damage done by this entitled fear monger. I just beg everyone to realize he is wrong.

Hate is wrong.

Here is the original Kirby cover.
