Story for the Dundee Comics Prize 2014.

wanted to do a ‘les enfants terrible’ MGS type of story about a scientist who bases an ‘agency’s’ two super soldiers on his dead daughters and ultimately fathers them and protects them during their AWOL.

couldn’t quite grasp the narrative so abandoned for now.

Last art post before Neon Noir landed.

A quick hello to any new followers who have found me through Neon Noir, And a quick thank you to previous followers who have put up with the continuous posts about Neon Noir these past few weeks.

heres a Gif.

More awesome art from Michael Kennedy to commemorate Neon Noir's release on REDDIT and IMGUR!

Wanted to give you guys the comic a couple days before everyone else, because you are all my bestest friends and we should totally hang out more, y’know?? (By the way, that comic is still right HERE.)

The reddit/imgur version has a few more pages of art than the Tumblr version (front cover, credits page, etc.), thanks to not having a totally arbitrary 10-image post limit. So go check that shit out for some extra goodies.

And if you dug the comic, and happen to have a reddit and/or imgur account, feel free to go upvote it/share the link/whatever. (Again, thank you all for so fucking much for all the support. I honestly prefer this to putting a price tag on the thing.)

And if you hate it and think it’s the single most offensively nonsensical and uninspired bullshit you’ve ever read, go downvote that blasphemous piece of shit! I can’t fuckin’ stop you! I’m a fuckin’ comic book writer! Not some kinda fuckin’ police-cop!

Either way, go check that shit out by CLICKING RIGHT HERE FOR THE REDDIT POST and CLICKING RIGHT HERE FOR THE IMGUR POST.

Also, we should make “police-cop” a thing people say.

Look! Can you believe it? We’re wishing a happy birthday to Caravaggio, who created the original version of this painting in the seventeenth century.

The Incredulity of the Apostle Thomas,” 17th century, copy after Caravaggio

SUPER IMPORTANT REMINDER THAT YOUR LIFE MAY OR MAY NOT DEPEND ON: Neon Noir, a short comic by myself and Michael Kennedy, is now online. 

It’s free, and it’s right HERE.

Thanks again for all the support and fucking amazing feedback, gals and guys. It means the goddamn world to me. 

And to all of you going out of your way to reblog and share links to the comic:

I am going to find you all, break into your homes, disable your security systems, and hug the shit out of you.

You beautiful bastards.

hey! i just wanted to say, man, i loved neon noir. that line about "zombiefying the past" was electric (and tbh, so was michael kennedy's stunning art), & while i loved the brevity of the comic -- how you're not really given any context for what's happening -- the worldbuilding is extraordinarily well done on both your part & mr. kennedy's. the characters all had wonderfully distinctive voices & personalities, & were this not an ask, i would go on for much longer. congrats! & thanks for sharing.

As a generally severely depressed human being, I’m having a ton of trouble actually dealing with the insane amount of happiness I’m feeling right now caused by all you awesome people saying awesomeness.

Like, it’s super weirding me out.
