So there was this time that DC Comics put out a wondrous single issue of THE DOOM PATROL, which was written by Grant Morrison at the time. And it featured art by Richard Case (the usual artist on the book for the bulk of Morrison’s run), Jamie Hewlett (who went on to design The Gorillaz [...]
A TASTE OF ASPHALT hits today. Snag it here. Okay, you want to know what my writing’s about. But you don’t want to spend a lot because everyone’s got projects to support and Kickstarters to back. So I’m going to make it easy. Here’s what ninety-nine cents gets you. Two short stories: “Crunch Time”, featuring [...]
Okay, right. One of the things I’ve been working on. An older version went on my tumblr, but I made some changes here. This is a gigantic collection of not only my writing on comics (both the reading and making) but horror film and fiction and thought, as well as all of my [...]
Don’t know how often I’ll do this, but I’m pulling a couple things out of the sketchbook that I’ve been carrying around for near on the last ten years. This one’s by Darwyn Cooke. You might recognize him from THE NEW FRONTIER. It’s John Henry, one of the few characters created new in the [...]

I’ll try to make the after event, but I can’t make any guarantees. This will be the official world premiere of the collected version of THE THIRSTY, and I’m honored [...]
The Bronze Age was so loopy that people thought this page was acceptable material to serve up to kids of all ages: Yeah, this page didn’t see print until MARVEL ESSENTIALS: MARVEL HORROR V.1 reprinted it. But still. Bill Mantlo scripted that and Russ Heath drew it and this was going to be okay for [...]
Artist Gabriel Hardman on the upcoming STRANGEWAYS: THE LAND WILL KNOW.
STRANGEWAYS: THE THIRSTY due for Diamond solicitation in November 2011. Street date in January, 2012.
I know. I don’t usually just go right out and say it. But I did this time. Artist Alex Sheikman (who you might’ve seen in the FCBD version of THE DARK CRYSTAL from Archaia) and on the cover of STRANGEWAYS: THE THIRSTY, will be doing a story entitled “Are Not Men” for the upcoming STRANGEWAYS [...]
