Chapter Eight of The Secret Diary of Bettie Page,

out now! The series finale!

MARCH 2017: DRAWING BLOOD issue one is out to the Kickstarter supporters, and we’re busy at work on future issues 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.

Meanwhile, issue eight of BETTIE PAGE is out now, with art by Esau Figueroa and Matt Gaudio. For details, you can read about it here. The series will be wrapping up at the conclusion of this arc, in issue eight, but you can also check Bettie out in PLAYBOY!

This last November saw the release of the trade paperback of DOC SAVAGE: THE RING OF FIRE, a four-issue comic book mini-series. Doc Savage goes looking for Amelia Earhart and gets more action than he bargained for, as the South Pacific boils over in 1938. Got some ink in the Hollywood Reporter, here. It was fun to play in Doc’s world, and I hope to get back there sometime soon.

I’ve started work editing Rick Elfman’s new feature film, HIPSTERS, GANGSTERS, ALIENS & GEEKS. It’s the usual crazy circus of fun from the director/writer of FORBIDDEN ZONE!

Also available now: with my usual sidekick Dave Acosta, I contributed one page to the LOVE IS LOVE anthology, whose proceeds benefit the victims and survivors of the Orlando Pulse shooting. Pick up a copy!  The trade paperback of last year’s TWILIGHT ZONE: THE SHADOW is out, joining my five issue steampunk miniseries:  Legenderry Vampirella.
