Just posted a new page of my webcomic Oyster War.
The Layla’s boarded! Haynie goes down swinging! New Oyster War page:
Oyster War made this year’s Best American Comics list of notable comics from 2013…. So if you’re into stuff that’s notable—and, hey, who isn’t?— you’re gonna love my comic!
A little jam comic that was made during the Locust Moon Comics Festival this past weekend.
Jim Steranko ~ some Nick Fury and some Captain America.
I am in the mood for more of his artwork.
Jim Steranko will be at the Locust Moon Comics Festival TOMORROW! Epic!

Incredible black-and-white work. Those Galactus drawings are amazing!
Everybody else seems to be posting maps for the Locust Moon Comics Festival this Saturday, so I guess I’ll jump on the bandwagon. I’ll be at table 23 in the sanctuary area of the Rotunda.
I’ll be next to fellow Philadelphian Jimmy Comey, so Odin only knows what kind of shenanigans will ensue during the day.
Go to Hell Holga Braum - pages 6-11
The second half of a short comic that will be appearing in print form at the Locust Moon Comics Festival on October 5.
Go to Hell Holga Braum - pages 1 - 5
This is the first half of a short comic that will be appearing in print form at the Locust Moon Comics Festival on October 5.
I had a few purposes with this comic. One was to use a simpler work method. No pen nibs or Winsor Newton brushes, just pen brushes and Mircon pens. The second was to touch upon Francis’s training as a cook, which I’ve alluded to in previous episodes. And finally, I wanted to introduce Holga Braum, who is sort of a Han Solo-type for this fantasy world that I’m building up. While Cid (the tree spirit) is calm and Zen-like, and Francis (the gnome) is anxious and a worry wart, Holga is all bravado and cool confidence. I’m not exactly sure where this trio is headed, but it’s a volatile mix that I hope will afford some good story opportunities.
So it goes…
In case you missed it debut at SPX, you’ll have another chance to get your hands on “Oh, The Things You Won’t Know!” at MICE in Boston next weekend! My co-editor Claire Folkman and I, along with the lovely Carey Pietsch, will be making the trek up from Philly and tabling all weekend, Sept. 28-29, so come by and say hello if you’ll be there!
I’ll also be exhibiting at Locust Moon Comics Fest on Oct. 5th right here in West Philly! How can’t you love a con (not to mention a comic book shop) that’s only a few blocks from your house? :) This is the biggest indie comic event the city has to offer, so stop on by and show your support!
And if you JUST CAN’T WAIT - it’s now available for pre-order at my store! Click here. It’ll go on sale and ship out as soon as my con season is through and I’ve gotten my head back on straight.
I’ll post soon about our trip to SPX. In short - AH IT WAS AMAZING!
This weekend at SPX I had a very nice fellow come up to my table and ask me if I had any advice on breaking into comics. As someone whose only been in the game since 2009 I felt a bit unqualified to give him an answer, but as we talked I realized I do have some ideas in this department, and I…
Some very good insights in this post. Especially #2, if you’re just starting out. I was that guy.
Just a few preview panels for a comic that I’m finishing for the Locust Moon Comics Festival on October 5. So, what can you expect?
SEE the gnome Francis chop some vegetables…
LISTEN to the rogue and outlaw Holga Braum boast and brag about his enemies list…
And OBSERVE the forest spirit Cid be a skillful mediator in an odd but important debate…
Intrigued? Confused? Both? All will be revealed on October 5.
Second annual celebration of comics and graphic arts. Saturday, October 5, 2013. Philadelphia, PA.
So, you and I may have missed SPX, but the Locust Moon Comics Festival is right around the corner, and that’s cause enough for celebration. There’s some great artists lined up, both legendary and emerging, as well Philly’s finest.
I’ll be there with a new relief print (my first Game of Thrones inspired one), a new Cid & Francis comic, a couple accordion comics, a few copies of Solstice - Acts I and II, and the usual assortment of prints, comics, and books.
I shall see you there…
(BTW, here’s the Facebook event page too.)
Dear Friends (2007)
This is a comic that I rediscovered in the midst of my recent move. Made this towards the latter half of 2007, in the middle of my grad school studies. The idea was to re-appropriate characters from the Winnie-the-Pooh stories into the world of your average, everyday middle school. At the time I was still getting the hang of comics, and searching for some sort of style to make my own.
I like this. I like the roughness of it, the language, the pacing. The slice-of-life aspect, if you will. I like Piglet’s earnestness. I don’t know, when I re-read this, I think of fond memories. Plain, and simple.
All the Comics/Graphic Novels on Better Book Titles!

In honor of SPX this weekend, I’m assuming. Hope everyone there has a blast!
I could have sworn I posted this Randy comic on the tumblrs already, but apparently I’m wrong. So here it is, only for anyone who CAN HANDLE THE TRUTH!
I’m folding the snapdragon queen tonight, so it seemed like a good time to show you a preview! Here’s the front cover; pages 1-5; page 19 for some literary/ library fun; and a later, ominous panel for kicks : )
Come find me at SPX (table I3 with Dirty Diamonds!) to buy a copy! I’ll have them later this year at MICE and Locust Moon fest, too. You’d normally get a free postcard print of your choice when you buy it, but if you tell me you saw this post on tumblr, you can instead snag a 1-page mini-minicomic if you’d prefer that. Comics overload!
Hope to see you there-
