New York Times Bestselling author Fred Van Lente—who I’ve had the pleasure of working with on Resurrectionists, Brain Boy, Project Black Sky, new editions of his Action Philosophers and The Silencers, and a few other things—is, in my humble opinion, one of the finest writers in comics. If you’re looking for a script format to […]

15.Feb.2016 My Year in Books: 2015

Continuing my tradition of making a “Here’s What I Read Last Year” list instead of a “Best Books of the Past Year” list—I’m super envious of those folks who have the ability to consume loads of newly published content each year—here’s a list of what I read in 2015.

04.Jan.2016 My 2015

Yesterday, I was rear ended by a guy who doesn’t know how to drive in the snow. This morning, I woke up sick. So… 2016 is off to a weird start, but hey, 2015 was a great year! Last year, I…

25.Apr.2015 My Year In Books: 2014

Every year, instead of a “My Picks for Best Books of the Year” list, I make a “Here’s What I Read This Year” list. I’m way, way, way behind on this post … 2015’s been a busy one so far! But, in keeping with the grand tradition (Check out previous Years In Books, if you’re […]

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 […]

Friends, Romans, Countrymen, lend me your peepers!

17.Jun.2014 Never stop improving

Last night, I was watching MasterChef with my fiancé and I realized that, over the two seasons I’ve watched, there are always a few contestants who seem certain they know better than the judges. Gordon Ramsay will come around, ask them what they’re cooking, taste it, and often offer some sort of “Are you sure […]
