10.Apr.2015 Young Shaq in the Bad Future

A while back, I had a silly idea. It was a notion of what would become a short comic story and—though I doubted anything would ever come of it—I sat down and wrote the script so I could get the idea out of my head and down on paper, freeing me up to move on […]

28.Jan.2015 What story do you want to tell?

If you want to create comics, I think Scott McCloud’s Understanding Comics is required reading. “But Jim! I’ve read enough comics to understand them!

10.Mar.2014 Easter Eggs That Only I Care About

I’m lucky enough to have been drawn into/referenced in a few comic books. You can read about them here, here, here, and here. These are Easter Eggs, if they’re even special enough to be called that, which I’m sure most people don’t notice. But—naturally—to me, they’re awesome! Here’s a bunch more from last year that […]
