Current Books and Projects
My newest comic is Grumbles X and it’s a collection of the past year’s Grumbles comic strips, as seen on Tumblr. Last year I moved from Atlanta to Athens, Georgia, and tried to cope with the 2016 presidential campaign.
It’s 28 full-color pages, 52 strips, with bonus material. You can pick up your copy at Indyplanet, or at one of the many comic book shows I’ll be attending around town.
Cabbagetown Chronicles, Volume 2 is a collection of the ninth year of Grumbles comic strips, as seen on Tumblr. It’s an autobiographical slice of my life, where I express what it’s like to live here in this lovely slice on intown Atlanta.
28 full-color pages, 52 strips, with extra bonus material. You can pick up your copy at Indyplanet, or at one of the many comic book shows I’ll be attending around town.
The first Cabbagetown Chronicles was a yearly collection of the ressurected Grumbles comic strip, back from the grave after six-and-a-half years of publication in Atlanta’s Sunday Paper. 28 full-color pages, 52 strips, with extra bonus material.
Copies are available at Indyplanet.
Über-Tales, available at Indy Planet or at my appearances at comic book shows around town.
Über-tales is a collection of 5 thrilling tales of derring-do. Superhero satire, spy adventures, mythic revenge stories, high-flying WWII adventure and end-times parables — this comic has it all.
I’m very proud of this 40-page, all color book. I hope you enjoy it.
My latest autobiographical medical story called Speechless, which can be purchased on IndyPlanet, or directly from me at various local Atlanta comic book shows.
This is a true story about yet another medical crisis that happened to me when I had a thyroid cancer scare, and ended up losing my voice as a result of a surgical procedure. It was a scary time for me, but at least it gave me material for a 40-page story.
The Grumbles strip spans over 10 years, and consists largely of me shaking my metaphorical fist at things that tick me off.
Published on the web, and formerly in Atlanta’s late, lamented Sunday Paper, Grumbles has alternatively reassured or disgusted its readers for well over 6 years. Collections of the weekly strips are available on Indy Planet and Lulu.
New strips can be found weekly on Tumblr.
It’s a 2 story all-action issue, with extras. First, a battle royale between the Astral Crusader and Doctor Death to save America from socialism. Special appearances by President Eisenhower, Joseph Stalin, and Elvis. The second story pits the Astral Crusader against a world-wide alien invasion, who have a grudge against the planet earth.
Return with us now to the thrilling comics of yesteryear, when heroes were heroes and villains were mostly commies. A loving tribute to comics of the early 1960s.
Writer Bobby Nash and I created the first Lance Star comic, Lance Star: Sky Ranger "One Shot!", which can be purchased here!
November, 1941. Ace Air Adventurer Lance Star accepts a dangerous mission into an enemy stronghold to stop the Nazis from uncovering plans for a weapon long believed destroyed. Featuring high-flying adventure, aerial dog fights, explosive action, this book is pure pulp fun from start to finish.
I created and edited an anthology called Real Magicalism. It’s a comics and prose collection filled with stories about that certain state between waking and sleeping, the nexus between the real and unreal, where things aren’t always what they seem. Currently out of print.
Contributers include Mark Campos, Egg Embry, Jason Flowers, Ron Fortier, Chris Hamer, Jesse Jarnow, Gonzalo Martinez, Bobby Nash, Jessi Nelson, Jaymes Reed, Terry Staats, Damion Suomi, and Matthew Warlick.
My second comic (and my first fictional one) is Daemon Process, a supernatural tale of death, love, computers, and an ancient, evil book. This is my first fictional comic, and I’m very proud of it. If you’d like to buy the final, finished 48-page graphic novel, you can get it at IndyPlanet.
Detached is the very first comic I ever created, at the ripe old age of 45.
It’s about my experience as a visual artist, being suddenly diagnosed with a detached retina, and about the fear of blindness, as well as the doubts and images of doom that go through one’s head when one experiences this (well, in my head, anyway...).
It’s a rather personal tale that I’m uniquely qualified to tell.
Copies are available at Indy Planet.
Over the years I've been lucky enough to be included in Not My Small Diary, an anthology produced yearly by Delaine Derry Green. Not My Small Diary, is a compilation of autobiographical comics by a diverse contributor base and has spanned over 17 issues.
