Chapter One of Elvira: Mistress of the Dark,

premieres July 4th, 2018!

AUGUST 2018: For starters, here’s an interview I did with FAMOUS MONSTERS OF FILMLAND about all the stuff I’ve got going on at the moment. An interview in FAMOUS MONSTERS is a bucket-list thing for me: I’ve been reading the mag since I was a kid. Hope you like it.

On the Fourth of July you can celebrate the Declaration of Independence AND heroic women who declare their own independence. Issue One of Elvira: Mistress of the Dark sees our horror hostess with the mostess go back in time to meet Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley and face a demonic villain from the Dark Ages.

Meanwhile, we’re putting the final touches on our DRAWING BLOOD graphic novel and the first issue of its spin-off, THE RADICALLY REARRANGED RONIN RAGDOLLS.  Kevin Eastman, of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fame, brought me in as co-creator and writer of this dark-comedy look inside the comic book industry and portrait of a famous cartoonist on the skids. Kevin is an amazing friend and collaborator and I couldn’t be luckier than to be going down this creative path with him. Look for a panel with us at San Diego Comic Con this year, and some big announcements about the future of the project.

Next up, in August... return with me to the early 19th century for ZORRO: SWORDS OF HELL: a four issue miniseries in which the hero of Alta California faces off against an army of demon zombies bent on conquering the newborn pueblo of Los Angeles.

Now available: the first volume of THE SECRET DIARY OF BETTIE PAGE: BETTIE IN HOLLYWOOD. This includes the first four issues of the miniseries, plus the bonus six page story originally published in PLAYBOY Magazine.
