The darkest hour comes right before the dawn.
Taking over the world, one page at a time.
Hey guys! How has everything been treating you?
I would like to be able to write one of these with only good vibes for you, no virus nonsense, no sad stories, no anxiety and you know what?
I will! Everybody deserves some pure goodness with no strings attached.
One of the most exciting projects I've ever worked on along side Shobo Coker is about to come out tomorrow! It will be available December 8th by BOOM!
I have already told you about Buckhead in my last newsletter so I won't tire you by repeating my self and listing all the exciting details about the world building and the cool characters and the mythological elements and the afrofuturistic aesthetic. I won't! I promise! But just so I'm clear... Buckhead is soooo cool! Seriously! Check it out.
Here’s the cover for issue 2!
All Drawn and no Brains.
A blast from the past!
Oni press has just recently published a trade paperback of Short Order Crooks. A book Chris Sebela and I had done a few years back as a Kickstarter. To work with such an amazing writer and guy was mind-blowing then and still is to me!
The story of Short Order Crooks hit all the right spots! It's sweet and smart. Deep and fun. Dark and emotional.
You can “live” in Portland's food truck scene through Rock's (the main character) eyes, a middle aged guy in crisis (lot's of crises, actually) with a taco truck.
I’m working on a little X-men Christmas story with my wife. Hopefully I’ll have it finished before December 25!
Plus... so much more exciting stuff!
Stuff I'm not “allowed” to discuss so as not to ruin the surprise for you guys. Seriously, the one thing I kinda- sorta don't totally enjoy about my job (that, as you may have noticed I generally, completely adore) is the waiting period before I can discuss my projects! I get to work with such cool guys (see above) on such inspiring projects, bringing beautiful stories to life. Not being able to shout it from the rooftops from the very first moment is, honestly, a little frustrating at times!
Back from the Read.
Marvel's Voices: Comunidades #1 is out tomorrow and it features some of my favorite Latin-x heroes by some of my favorite creators. Among them are also two friends and colleagues, Alex Segura and Juan Ponce. I’m super happy and excited for them and can’t wait to read their stories!
Book to the Future.
