COOL.... NEW GHOUL!


Pull up a stump groovy goblins.... I'm here to tell you a frightfully good bit of news about my new project for FREE LUNCH COMICS, a dark and twisted tale of a naughty old soldier who left his platoon behind on the sands of some distant tropic isle during the darkest days of WWII. There his buddies were ambushed and mowed down by machine gun fire while our little fiend escaped to arrive home as a bona-fide hero.


However... on one dark and stormy night more than half a century later his old commrades in arms come to bring him to task for his cowardice so very long ago...


Writer Steve Kanaras was most kind in choosing me to bring his 8 page story to life. It will appear months from now in an up comming edition of his horror anthology ONLY IN WHISPERS, which has been the home to some very talented writers and artists.


It's a little odd vacilating pages between this creepy comic story, and the historical kid friendly FIRST IN FLIGHT ( see post below ) but, all in all it is very good to have so much work to keep me busy. Both projects came as a result of me making connections within the organization of CAG which serves as a guild for budding comic creators. Joining that group was one of the best career decisions I've made thusfar, and I highly recomend it to any of you who are looking to get some real world experiance in the small press industry.


I hope you all enjoy my putrid pencils this week... Keep your peepers propped open for more ghoulish goodies in the weeks to follow, until then stay comfy in your coffins kiddies, and don't forget.... when your out on the prowl, to sink your fangs into a stack of comics~

Superb Mike! It's great to see that you are keeping busy. You've captured the true ghoulish look. I like the way you've balanced the dark areas with the light areas.

I just had a story published in Jim Main's Western/Horror comic, Boot Hill. I've been doing some horror too.
