Two of my favorite things are heavy metal music and comic books, so whenever I hear that a band writes songs based on a comic (like Iced Earth did with Spawn) or a musician is making comics of their own (like Tom Morello or Claudio Sanchez) I’m curious. The latest collaboration between a band and comic book creator is Matt Miner (Liberator) and Earth Crisis for Liberator/Earth Crisis: Salvation of Innocents. (more…)

Merry Christmas to all! As a present for all of you, here is a preview of my comic book, “Wicked Game.” Written, drawn, and lettered for your enjoyment.  Writing comics is a passion of mine and the completion of this book is one of my greatest accomplishments.

It’s something I couldn’t have done without my collaborators: Cary Watson; who did the logo, Mindy Steffen; my letterer, Suzi Lorraine; a great actress/writer who is the model for the character of Maria, and Roderic Rodriguez; a gem whose art brought this story to life.

Thank you so much for reading this preview. I hope you enjoy it. If you do be sure to like the Facebook page and keep checking this page for news about this exciting book. Have a wonderful holiday season.

UPDATE: Check out my appearance on Evil Jester Presents with fellow writers Charles Day, Jeremy Mays, and H.E. Goodhue. We talk comics, writing, and of course “Wicked Game.” Click here to listen. Preview is after the jump!

Richard Donner’s Superman: The Movie is one of the greatest movies ever made. Spider-Man, Batman Begins, Iron Man, and every other superhero movie have followed the blueprint it laid out. It’s heart and verisimilitude allowed the movie to stand the test of time. However, times change and you can’t keep the Man of Steel off the big screen forever. Bryan Singer attempted to resurrect the last son of Krypton in 2006’s Superman Returns. A noble effort, Superman Returns was undone by its slavish devotion to Richard Donner’s classic and a lack of action. Zack Snyder (300, Watchmen) seeks to rectify this with Man of Steel. So, does it soar like Superman: The Movie or crash like Superman IV: The Quest for Peace? Click below to find out.
