My new gig!

Back in September, I left Dark Horse Comics after six years to pursue a position at a brand new company. But, due to the top secret nature of that new job, I couldn’t say anything about where I was headed.

Now, thanks to the killer publicity efforts of Steve Sunu, I’m psyched to share that I’m the senior editor at Stēla: a brand new digital publisher producing exclusive and totally excellent mobile native comics, aka radical comics built specifically to read on your smart phone!

I have written a comic! Birch Squatch: The Last Bigfoot lives!

Friends, Romans, Countrymen, lend me your peepers!

I have written a comic about a bigfoot pushed to his limit that Comics Alliance (who generously covered this indie effort) dubbed “quite possibly the greatest sasquatch-based sci-fi revenge mystery of autumn 2014.” You should use your eyeballs to look at its glorious art and read its excellent words! The comic is called Birch Squatch: The Last Bigfoot and it is currently available digitally on Gumroad. Continue Reading “I have written a comic! Birch Squatch: The Last Bigfoot lives!”


Talking Shop: Orchid

A few months back, I mentioned that I was lucky enough to be working as an assistant editor on some of Dark Horse Comics’ biggest launches of the Fall. The first of those books, Tom Morello and Scott Hepburn’s Orchid, is less than two weeks away from its premiere, so I thought I’d do a blog post about it. Continue Reading “Talking Shop: Orchid”


Making suggestions: King Conan

Recently, Dark Horse social media guru Spencer Newlin-Cushing asked me to write up a staff pick for the newly-launched Dark Horse Digital Store. I was more than happy to oblige and wrote up this recommendation for King Conan: The Scarlet Citadel

“Grab a cup, boy. If it’s a tale you want, then, by Crom, a tale I’ll give you.”

From a face rife with deep grooves, either of wrinkles brought on by age or sword scars of battles long past, a graying Conan’s words to a Nemedian chronicler in search of the barbarian king’s most intense exploits acts as the perfect introduction for this action-packed series. Less the bar-brawling warrior now, but no less formidable, King Conan recounts a tale that focuses on a time when his army had been decimated and, cutting down swordsmen left and right, the brawny ruler is eventually taken captive by a power-hungry wizard—and that’s when the fun really starts!

King Conan: The Scarlet Citadel is the quintessential tale of the young Cimmerian thief, mercenary and pirate who grew to be a leader of men. With bloodshed and beheadings, monsters and mayhem, Tim Truman adapts a tale from legendary pulp scribe Robert E. Howard that’s the perfect introduction for a new reader to Conan’s exciting adventures and another thrilling chapter for longtime fans to read. And with art from Tomás Giorello that caused to exclaim “Giorello gets a lifetime pass to draw this character and his world because he does it with such texture and poise,” what more could you want?!
