An Edgar Allan Poe Double Shot

As the title of this entry states, we have TWO Poe-related updates for you today!

boop

 

First, you can check out brand new Terra Somnium by artist, Louise Fitzpatrick, and yours truly, RIGHT HERE! We are now 16 pages into the first chapter of the prequel to The Imaginary Voyages of Edgar Allan Poe, and things are getting weirder by the second!

And please, when you check it out, like it, subscribe, and share it with your friends. I can’t tell you how invaluable this is to the folks who lovingly produce webcomics.

Second, The Imaginary Voyages of Edgar Allan Poe #2 is now available for purchase HERE ON COMIXOLOGY and HERE ON AMAZON KINDLE!

If you’ve read issue 1, you can see just how different it is from the graphic novel that was published by Image Comics. The reviews we’ve received confirm my long-held opinion that it needed to be revised both script-wise and artistically. The addition of artists, Luis Czerniawski and Andrea Messi, bring so much life and energy to these characters and environs–wouldn’t you agree?

 

In other news, we are wrapping up production on ELEVATOR #3 and we will soon send it to ComiXology and Amazon Kindle. Elevator artist, Randy Valiente, has really knocked this series out of the ballpark. Issue 3 is a real gut punch, so you’ve been warned!

A New Original Short Story To Tickle Your Lovecraftian Fancy


My good friend and writing mentor (yes, Amy, you are!) Dr. Amy H. Sturgis is featuring a never before seen short story written by Dwight on her blog today!

I know I tend to brag on my talented husband somewhat, and I will continue to do this, but he truly is prolific. He is always writing something or thinking about writing something. And new ideas even come to him when he’s in the middle of writing something entirely different!

Clue: This story has nothing whatsoever to do with Sweeney Todd. I just like the illustration.

When Dwight showed me this twisted little tale, I immediately thought of Amy and her amazing group of Lovecraft fans. The thing about Howard Lovecraft: you either like him or you don’t. Despite the massive amount of stories he produced in his career, he is still not respected as much as he should be for his contributions to literature, and I think that is a shame.

But that is my two cents worth. Enjoy the story!

Who Art Thou, Judge Dredd?

Over the weekend, Dwight introduced me to one of his favorite characters: Judge Dredd. Not being a capes and tights type of person, I would have passed this comic up in a heartbeat while walking through my local comic shop–especially after seeing the horrendous Stallone film.

However, my mind has been changed since Judge Dredd is anything but your typical super hero.

Right now I am reading about him fighting some really nasty beings called the Dark Judges: Judge Fire, Judge Fear, Judge Mortis and Judge Death.

Judge Dredd takes no prisioners and his matter-of-fact style of looking at life is kind of refreshing. The whole idea of a Deadworld and humans being guilty simply because they are alive is a frightening concept–and right in line with my taste in horror.

I am really digging it. Who knew?

[I did! – Dwight]

Okay, I have to admit that I am really looking forward to seeing Karl Urban as Dredd. He was brilliant as Dr. McCoy in Star Trek, so I can only imagine his take on this iconic character. And I hear he will not remove his helmet. Dwight said this is proof that Urban gets Judge Dredd since he is the embodiment of the law, and, as such, should never, ever be seen in anything but the complete raiment of a Judge.

So there you have it. Judge Dredd is everything my husband said he was.

I guess that makes me one of the newest Judge Dredd fans.

[Drokk, yeah! – Dwight]

[I’m plugging away on a synopsis for a novel proposal and continuing my worldbuilding project. It never stops, folks.
Oh, and it’s been my long-time dream to write Judge Dredd. Just want to put that out there.-Dwight]
