Been absent for a bit because I've been up to my eyeballs in work on a new series that was announced at SDCC - Action Lab's "The F1rst Hero"!
Here's the video from the Action Lab panel at the San Diego Comic Con where I was called up on stage (on the spot) to give a little info about the book. Link here
I'm knee-deep in the third issue right now. The series is a real-world superhero story about a world where everyone who gains powers goes crazy. The government, to stem to flow of crazy, powered beings, enacts the Extrahuman Task Force, which hunts and kills said bad guys. Our hero, a war vet, manifests powers but DOESN'T lose his mind. Now, does he stay safe and keep his powers hidden, or use them to help others but bring the attention and ire of the government. The F1rst Hero is a four issue miniseries coming in early 2014 from Action Lab Entertainment. Written by Anthony Ruttgaizer
, art by me, colors and letters by Keiren Smith
, and covers by Lee Moder.
I'll post some art - a sneak peak for all you cool kids - in just a moment. Today Anthony launched an IndieGoGo campaign to cover the production costs on the book. He's got some killer incentives - including a digital subscription for just FIVE BUCKS - that's all four issues in PDF form for FIVE BUCKS. He also has some amazing incentives from people like Lee Moder, Francis Manapul
, Marcus To
, myself and others!

A lot of things going on that I'll update as I can, but this is the first of lots of good stuff!
