Here's my comics record. It's got everything from superhero action to western horror to romance to time-traveling conspiracy...man, I'm all over the map here. 

Check out each comic below; many have associated mini-sites with pages or interviews. Like what you see? Want to see more? Drop me a line and say so.

 

POSTCARDS is an exceptional new anthology with a simple premise: take old, mailed postcards and tell the stories behind them. Cryptic? Creepy? Funny? Tragic? Sure...all of the above. My entry, "Meet Me Tonight In Dreamland," with artist Tony Fleecs, tells the story of a forbidden love from half a century's distance.

Scheduled for publication in June 2007.

 

 

 

 

 

If there were superheroes, don't you think there'd be a TV channel devoted exclusively to them? THE NETWORK is ESPN meets the Justice League, the story of the lives and loves of those who keep an eye on America's superpowered elite. And when one of those elite gets caught doing something very, very bad, well...the Network's newest cameraman finds himself in a whole lot of trouble.

Adam "Fitz" Fitzpatrick wakes up on a park bench in the middle of an unfamiliar city. He wanders around until he finds a crowd of people awaiting a parade. Then he looks around, sees a grassy knoll, sees more than one gunman, and sees a Presidential motorcade come around the bend...and everything becomes terrifyingly clear.

RIPPED is a story of time travel and conspiracy, a tale that takes an ordinary 21st-century kid from Dallas to Troy to World War I, among other eras, in search of the clues to prevent an apocalypse from occurring...next week.

Art by Jason Flowers, colors by Sonny Leader.

Nineteenth-century Arizona. Preachers are dying in horrible fashion, and it's up to Will Dalton, a New York City newspaper reporter, to find out why. But when he hooks up with his brother Clay, the sheriff of the town of Sobrante, he finds the truth is more horrifying than he could have imagined.
