Hey comics-world! It feels like it’s been forever and a day since I had the flurry of activity concluding with the enjoyable S.P.A.C.E. show here in Columbus. Pro tip: The 2023 date and location are set! Mark your calendars! So while I am not blessed with time, I’ll do a quick and dirty rundown ofContinue reading “A brief and overdue update”
“Who Are You?” That’s the theme for the second issue of Strange Times, our “anything goes” anthology. The idea of “Who Are You” is tied up in the conversations of our day about identity. Red and blue. Rich and poor. Fat and slim. Black and white and red and orange and purple. It seems thatContinue reading “Calling for Submissions: Strange Times #2”
John Orlando was so kind as to include me in a big interview podcast with a number of creators at SPACE 2022 and asked me to succinctly explain the Phoenix Productions lineup. You can listen to it here. My interview starts at 24:57. Enjoy!
Larned Justin and Steve Keeter took a look at HEROES NOW #1 in their latest round of video reviews. Here’s the video, all cued up for you. Thank you for the kind words, guys. I’ll probably do something about burying the title page in future issues. Bigger picture, I can’t express how grateful I amContinue reading ““Talking Small Press Comics” reviews HEROES NOW #1″
Keith Newsome picked up HEROIC: HEROES PAST at SPACE 2022 and was inspired to draw what I believe is the first piece of fan art in my 35-ish years of self publishing. And what a piece it is – a full body shot of The Light… Pretty cool, and a great way to kick offContinue reading “First fan art!”
Priorities are priorities, and my top goals of SPACE 2022 were to 1. Finally meet lots of small press acquaintances in person, some after over 30 years; 2. Introduce a lot of people to Phoenix Productions books and 3. Have some quality time with my daughter. Not necessarily in that order. And on all threeContinue reading “The SPACE 2022 haul!”
The 22nd Small Press & Alternative Comics Expo, aka SPACE, was held on May 21-22 at the Rhodes Center on the grounds of the Ohio State Fairgrounds. That’s the top-line explanation, but then there’s what happened inside. I’ll try to share what little I could see from my vantage point, as well as my personalContinue reading “Post-SPACE wrapup – First show since ’87!”
I’m back from SPACE, still collecting my thoughts, but I saw on YouTube that Steve Keeter and Larned Justin did a quick video review of Hologram #4 on their show. I have it cued up for you here: I greatly appreciate Larned and Steve giving the book some time for comment as it comes out.Continue reading “Larned & Steve review Hologram #4”
It’s been a touch and go, but that’s par for the course with Joe’s life since he was transformed into…whatever he’s become…back in 1988. But we did it! HOLOGRAM #5 will be ready for SPACE 2022 as well! Chapter 5 of our Counting the Days arc begins with the office fallout from Joe’s accident, givesContinue reading “Hologram #5 is live”
I’d normally pass on sharing something as simple as price cards for a show, but this package has a couple special promotions. (Hint: Look at HEROES NOW #1 and HOLOGRAM) Remember: SPACE 2022 is coming up this weekend. Details here. Take a gander….and plan to swing by! I’m looking forward to meeting everyone!
