Next round revving up…

Hey all, been a little while since I updated you on things. It seems as if the publishing world works in ebbs and floes (flows?) around here. But I’ll offer a few little tidbits as things are starting to cook once again. And I think that covers the latest! I hope you’ve been enjoying theContinue reading “Next round revving up…”

Hembeck Hero Gallery: IN COLOR!

One of the fun things about having your own little stable of characters is that you can “play” with them. By that, I mean that you can interpret them in any darned way you want. I’ve used the Heroes Now anthology series to do just that. Past that, there’s the Hero Gallery. It’ll be aContinue reading “Hembeck Hero Gallery: IN COLOR!”

HEROES NOW #1 is here!

Just in time for a debut at SPACE (Small Press/Alternative Comics Expo) on May 21-22 in Columbus, Ohio! It’s the premiere issue of the Phoenix Productions hero anthology, bringing the classic 1980s heroes into the modern day! Building upon the stories told in HEROIC: HEROES PAST, HEROES NOW: PATRIOT and HOLOGRAM, this anthology continues theContinue reading “HEROES NOW #1 is here!”

HEROES NOW #1 is at the printer!

Everyone has signed off, the bill has been paid, the files have been uploaded…so it’s time to announce HEROES NOW #1! All along, my goal was to release the HEROIC: HEROES PAST retrospective and then settle in with three regular books: 1) The HOLOGRAM mincomic, 2) The STRANGE TIMES “anything goes” anthology, and 3) HEROESContinue reading “HEROES NOW #1 is at the printer!”


After months of planning and scanning, of reaching out to long-lost acquaintances and rebuilding friendships, of hours on InDesign and Photoshop…HEROIC: HEROES PAST is here! The book is 90 pages including glossy, full color covers and inside front covers with black and white interiors. Content covers my hero writing from the 80’s with art by:Continue reading “HEROIC: HEROES PAST is here!”

Heroic: Heroes Past proofs are in hand

This is not a drill. I actually have digital proofs of Heroic: Heroes now. Only one minor tweak as best I can see, but I’m giving Matt Kanaracus a chance to look it over before green-lighting the presses. It’s only fair, seeing as a healthy portion of the book was drawn by his pen…over 30Continue reading “Heroic: Heroes Past proofs are in hand”

Catching up

Hey everyone – Sorry it’s been so long between updates. August has been largely about getting the kiddos ready for school, which just started today. But that’s not to say that I wasn’t busy…. William Henry Caddell and I are cruising along on Hologram #2, and I am reasonably confident that we will have itContinue reading “Catching up”

Been a little while…

Quick update on the state o’ things: I am working on Heroes Past, a book reprinting my five heroes’ stories…a short “omnibus”, if you will. Most all work on it is done, but I need to nail down the page count and get the special front cover finalized. To the best of my knowledge, I’veContinue reading “Been a little while…”

Not gonna jinx anything!

It’s been a little while since I wrote with an update on the status of new projects. (The old collection has been entirely bagged and packaged into manageable boxes…that took a week-plus.) And while I don’t want to screw up the system, here are some intentionally vague tidbits: Collected edition of older books – AContinue reading “Not gonna jinx anything!”
