The Comics Are Still Comin'!

What it is, family, friends, and fans! Haven't posted here in a while, but it's not because things aren't happening--they are! Just been buuuuuuusy with other stuff, but still squeezing in plenty of writing. Here's what's happening...

Part three of Midnight Stranger has been illustrated by my co-creator Joe Koziarski and is now being lettered and colored by Will Lill publisher Warren Montgomery for Fun Adventure Comics #3. Here's a the sensational splash page (wip)...

Also in Will Lill news, artist Ben Ferrari is working on a sci fi/horror/western short-shocker called "Snake Eyes!" for publication in an upcoming WL comic. It's my love-letter to Charlton Comics...

The biggest news is that publisher Mark Davis has brought his wonderful Surprising Comics label out of retirement and we (meaning Mark, me, David Johnson, John [Lucky Comics] Helmer, Erik Franklin, Colnk Adink, Ken Johnston, Wiley J. Connor, Mike Waggoner, and George E. Warner) are working hard on producing a brand new mag in the sensational Silver Age Style: Surprising Universe! My pal David and I are working on a brand-new super-hero created by Mark called The Unbeatable Brick, and are we ever having a great time! Who or what is The Unbeatable Brick? Well, imagine if Stan Lee and Bob Haney got together to create a super-hero and you might be getting close! Unbeatable Brick started out as a Thing/Hulk kinda character, but he's gone far beyond that--and I am sure you're gonna dig him! Here's a look at the cover to Surprising Universe #1 (art and coloring by Colnk Adink) as well as the splash of the first Unbeatable Brick story by David Johnson!

Unbeateable Brick, along with Skyscraper (pictured on the cover above) and a few other super-heroes created by Mark are going to combine into a brand new super-team by the sixth ish of Surprising Universe, so if you wanna get in the ground floor of a super-cool, modern/retro super-hero universe, get Surprising!

I'm also working on some short-shockers for various anthologies aaaand I'm working up some new super-heroes, so stay tuned! This blog's been quiet for a while, but it's the calm before the storm. 2016 was one of the most fun and productive years I've had in comics in a loooooooong time. Somehow, though, I get the feeling that 2017 is gonna be even better! Stay tuned!

(P.S. If you haven't already, buy some of my comics! Please? Also, if you're an artist and you wanna work on some cool stuff for some of the most far-out small publishers around, e-mail me some samples at !)

Merry Christmas, y'all!!
