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!”

If you want a copy of the Commentary Edition, I will tell you that I am VERY low on inventory and don’t have plans toContinue reading “Larned Justin extended video review of Heroes Now: Patriot – Commentary Edition”


That’s right, kids! More PATRIOT! Seriously, some pre-release feedback suggested that this book was a little unique for today’s marketplace and, as a result, was a tad confusing for some readers. I thought it best to use the time immediately following the completion of the original HEROES NOW: PATRIOT book to jot down my thoughtsContinue reading “HEROES NOW: PATRIOT – COMMENTARY EDITION on sale NOW”


Every time you see that little UFO logo on the cover of a small press publication, you know it’s published by a member of the United Fanzine Organization. The UFO is one of the longest-running fanzine co-ops in history, and I’m proud to have returned to the group after 30+ years away. UFO member publicationsContinue reading “UFO Checklist promotes STRANGE TIMES #1 & HEROES NOW: PATRIOT”


The books are on the street, and former United Fanzine Organization Chairman and small press comics legend Jeff Wood got the first mention: I thanked Jeff for his kind mention, and he replied, “[T]hank you for the enjoyable books!” Small press publishing is fun! It’s a terrific challenge to make the books, but just asContinue reading “First HEROES NOW: PATRIOT & STRANGE TIMES mention!”
