Thank you to all the brilliant artists who submitted their work for our artist search! I’ve really enjoyed seeing the diverse art styles that have appeared in my inbox during this process. But, alas, we are thrilled to say that we have filled the position and we exclaim, “Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more!” as we enter the fray. Thanks again to everyone who took the time to contact me. You can be certain I have filed your work away in our digital filing cabinet for future projects. And believe me, with our robust publishing schedule, we’re going to need some of you in the not-too-distant future!
Hocus Pocus Comics is moving forward! I’ve just submitted our first project to ComiXology, so now the waiting begins. I can’t wait to finally share the amazing books that we will be unleashing in the coming year. If you would like to get an insider sneak peek at what we’ll be releasing in the coming year, please become a PATRON to see exclusive Top Secret material before anyone else. Whether it’s $1 or $100 a month, it will all help us achieve our goals to make the multiverse’s greatest comics. So a big thank you to everyone who has already joined the cause, and I would encourage those who haven’t to become a part of our movement today!

‘Tis the season for all things spooky!
So… I was going through my art files and I came across this comic short that I wrote for IDW Publishing’s Gene Simmons’ House of Horrors. The story features art and colors by German Torres and letters by Robbie Robbins. I think it’s pretty good, and I hope you will, too.
By the way, these pages belong to IDW Publishing. You do not have permission to steal–er–use them for your own wicked purposes.
I absolutely love this Frankenstein image by my buddy Nat Jones! In fact, I’m certain Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley herself would approve. I think Nat masterfully captured the essence of Victor Frankenstein’s creature!
And, to go along with this wonderful work of art, here’s a quote from one of my all-time favorite novels…
“I busied myself to think of a story— a story to rival those which had excited us to this task. One which would speak to the mysterious fears of our nature, and awaken thrilling horror—one to make the reader dread to look round, to curdle the blood, and quicken the beatings of the heart. If I did not accomplish these things, my ghost story would be unworthy of its name.” – Mary Shelley, Introduction to Frankenstein, 1831
I am totally immersed in an amazing project right now. I can’t wait to share it with you!
Today’s Inktober sketch is by my youngest son, Logan! As you can see, he’s already a better artist than his dad. And I’m okay with that.
See you tomorrow!
Good Morning! Today’s horrible Inktober sketch is a Victorian Ghost named Pip. So there ya go.
All is well here after the passing of Hurricane Matthew. We survived and are moving forward with a full slate of projects. Thank you to all of our friends and family who checked in on us!
See you tomorrow!
