As teased a while back, I'm finally ready to launch the comics section of my website. As anyone who reads this blog knows, my love of comics is deep and abiding. After a great experience working with Sean Phillips on the Blast of Silence comic "adaptation," I decided to try my hand at writing my own comics.
I've got a few longer-form stories in the works, in various stages of development, (more on those soon, hopefully), but I've also been trying to hone my skills on some shorter pieces. Some of these are legit "stories," others are more fragments or exercises in mood, but every one was a great experience. It was great to get to work with such a wide variety of talented artists, and to see each of their different processes.
Here's the first batch of stories I'm posting, all with a "crime" theme:
"These Kids Today" drawn by Connor Willumsen
"Below the Fold," drawn by Jorge Coelho
"Uninvited," drawn by Jhomar Soriano
" The Real Thing," drawn by Dan Duncan
and "Spared," drawn by Joe Dellagatta.
(Colors on all of them by me, by the way.) Click on over, then come on back here and let me know what you think in the comments.
And if you're going to be at NYCC next weekend, I should be carrying around newly-printed copies of an anthology comic that which contains all of those stories, which I'm calling "EGG." (Because they're "hard-boiled" stories. Get it? Eh?) If you run into me, I'll be happy to give you a copy. It's going to look something like this:
