I have a number of exciting new comic book projects launching in 2015. One that I am most excited about is a "Sword and Sandals" series with a Biblical twist that chronicles a daring raid to retrieve The Ark of the Covenant.

From this point on, the trick is in successfully transmitting that energy found in the layouts throughout the entire production … [Read more...]

uncannyxmen-omnibus1

I come here only to praise what I sincerely believe as the greatest run in comics over the last 40 years. My love of the Uncanny X-Men by Chris Claremont and John Byrne is never ending.

Books, music, films, television and comics are "Of A Time". For … [Read more...]
