Motion pictures and stories made fresh daily.

I’ve always been a writer.

In Hollywood, this means I’ve written a lot of stuff you’ve never seen,

some stuff maybe you have (check the IMDb),

and some stuff you’ve seen I never got credit for.

Starting in the fall of 2014, I embarked on a new direction as a writer:

comic books!

My first assignment was a 5-issue steampulp adventure of the lovely lady above called

LEGENDERRY: VAMPIRELLA, which started in February, 2015.  

The series is available as a trade paperback.

In March 2015, my two one-shot comics

featuring DOC SAVAGE and THE SHADOW hit the stands.

In 2016, I had a fantastic opportunity to combine two of my favorite things in one: TWILIGHT ZONE: THE SHADOW, now collected in trade paperback form.

In 2017, I wrote DOC SAVAGE: THE RING OF FIRE a classic adventure that puts Doc back where he belongs: fighting a supervillain in the 1930s, and looking for Amelia Earhart.

BETTIE PAGE, on sale now, takes the legendary pin-up to Hollywood in the 1950s, where she gets mixed up with spies, cults and (most dangerous of all) the movie industry. It’ll be out in July from Dynamite, with art by Colton Worley and a whole lot of awesome variant covers.

Coming in mid-2018 (but available to Kickstarter supporters now)

is the project I co-created with Kevin Eastman. Yes, THAT Kevin Eastman. The TMNT guy.
It’s called DRAWING BLOOD, and it’s the crazy “backstage” story of a

cartoonist who rode the roller-coaster of success to the top,

and is now dealing with what happens when it hits the bottom.
