The Cash

Thursday, May 1st, 2014


I’ve recently began working on my first graphic novel. It’s a very different format for someone used to doing mini-comics and comic strips as it requires waiting until you’ve done over a hundred pages of art before you get any reader feedback. So I’ve decided to release a limited run of each chapter as a mini-comic (the first of which I just finished) in hopes of getting an idea whether or not this thing is going to have an audience.

It’s a story set in the late 1800’s in my hometown of Dayton, Ohio and centers around two brothers, John and Frank Patterson, struggling with the decision of what they are going to make of themselves. This first chapter depicts the beginnings of their journey as it is wrought with risks and pitfalls. This is indeed a true story that I’ve found fascinating for awhile and felt it worthy of taking the time to share with others who may not be familiar.

This first chapter (titled The Purchase) is a 22 page black and white comic with a color cover and a sticker price of $4 (postpaid in the United States). Originally I had planned on debuting it at Appleseed Con, but it looks like it will be sometime in June. If you’d like to pre-order a copy you can send payment to the address at the bottom of this page or to my paypal account which is

Below is a sample page from the first chapter depicting the Patterson brothers’ frustration after realizing the business they just purchased isn’t as solid as they were led to believe.

Independent Creators Expo

Tuesday, January 7th, 2014


In a few weeks Wright State University will be hosting the first Independent Creators Expo for small press cartoonists in Dayton, Ohio! To celebrate such an awesome event that’s happening right here in my home town I’ve put this mini comic together that will debut at the show. It’s a little darker than my usual work (must be all those television programs I’ve been watching lately) so buyer beware.

Chalmers is an actual town in Indiana that I’ve driven past many times on I-65 on my visits to Chicago (it’s the town with all of those giant wind turbines in case you’ve been down that same stretch of highway). This comic book is the story of a young man from Chalmers who finds that the wind farm’s construction affects him and others in ways never intended.

This and many other awesome comics by some fantastic creators from the Dayton area and beyond will be at I.C.E. and so should you! The show will be held Saturday February 1st from 10 am – 5 pm at Wright State University’s Student Union Hall. For more information check out I.C.E.’s website here.
