  1. Hey! Just stumbled upon your website and read the blog about “The Reality of Mainstream Creator Owned Comics”. It was very insightful! I just came out with my own graphic novel this past Oct and I’ve learned a lot from what you’ve written. Great blog!

  2. Skullkickers got me back into books after like 15 years ..

    Thanks a ton

  6. hi, i just read your short story Dr. Quinn’s Diagnosis in the legends of the dark knight paperback and it was a great read, keep up the good work.

  7. I think WAYWARD is the bomb! You are so talented! Love your work! I’m creating a Steampunk web-series based on a graphic novel writer and I would love YOU to be the creator of the graphic novel that precedes the series.
