He had come across the Innovation website and was curious to learn more about the process of putting together a webcomic, working with artists and the exercise in project management that comes along with such a project.
It’s a quick 15 minute conversation, but hopefully you’ll learn something!

I appreciate Marcel having me on the show!
Through the month of November, I aimed to take you on a wild ride through technology, mystery and suspense.
Did you come along for that ride? If not, you can now catch up on the first four chapters of my free webcomic, INNOVATION, by clicking over to www.innovationcomic.com (may as well bookmark it while you’re there).
Together, artists Ken Perry, Mike Hatfield, Damon Threet and Stan Chou released 20 free pages of comic book goodness over the month of November as we set the foundation for a growing shared universe. The four stories will continue on in some form or fashion answering some questions while bringing even more to light. If you like a little bit of mystery and thinking in your comics, I think you’ll love Innovation.
Give it a look and let me know what you think!
Chapters 5-14 are currently in production, some by returning artists, others by new contributors and once we have a few in the can, we’ll begin again with our second “issue.”
Help us spread the word of this new free project. The contributing artists are phenomenally talented. It’s a privilege to collaborate with them, and I’d like to get as many eyes on their work as possible.

Back in June of this year, I had the pleasure of working with artist Tomasz Witas on a 3-page short comic called COMPROMISED.
Good news — it has finally been released!
Swing on over to the GrayHaven Comics website and pick up The Gathering: Spies anthology for our story and 33 additional pages of amazing work from up-and-coming creators. Just $3.50 gets you a ton of fun!
Here’s a reminder of what Tomasz brought to this wild and crazy short comic:
I promise that you’re in for a definite treat. Thanks for supporting me, Tomasz and the wonderful staff over at GrayHaven Comics.
It’s been pretty strict radio silence on UNIT 44 ever since we successfully funded the first issue on Kickstarter back in September. This is mainly because I’ve been updating our backers on a regular basis, giving them exclusive looks at the process as we create the inaugural issue.
Today, I shared with the backers a big announcement about the project and it’s so crazy, I had to post it here as well.
As we were nearing the end of our second Kickstarter campaign for the book and news of our upcoming title was spreading like wildfire across comic sites, social media and self-storage focused communities, the campaign found it’s way in front of Dan and Laura Dotson, who you may know better as the auctioneers of the hit television show STORAGE WARS.
These folks, right here:
Dan wanted to know about he could go about getting his likeness into our comic, so we worked it out to where Dan will be man who sells Chester and Ike the fateful storage unit. How cool is that?
This did call for a few revisions on our part, but we’ve gotten Dan installed into page 2 of the comic and Ed is currently working on page 11. We’re nearly halfway complete with issue #1!
Check out Ed’s rendition of Dan and his wife, Laura, below and be sure to check out their website, American Auctioneers.
We appreciate Dan and Laura’s support and perhaps one day, a copy of Unit 44 will find its way into a locker that’s sold on the show. Crazier things have happened.
Have a great rest of your week, and hey — go watch some Storage Wars online (it’s FREE).
Today is the day!
The final issue of my crime-fiction miniseries CHAMBERS, with art by Kristian Rossi and colors by Kefas Armando, has arrived digitally via ComiXology!
This marks the conclusion of the miniseries that took readers on a wild romp through a world of crooked cops, bad decisions, bloody revenge and apartment shower curtains (you’ll have to read the book to understand that last part). Readers witnessed just how far Denise Chambers would go to find answers once someone began taking an axe to her family tree.
In the final installment, Denise’s friendship with Bruce may be shattered, but he’s the only one left who can give her answers.
If you’re up for reading your comics digitally, just $8 will get you all four issues of the series, or stay tuned to grab the digital trade paperback, which will be released on December, 18.
Chambers is published by Arcana Studio.
It all ends tomorrow.
The final issue of my crime-fiction comic book CHAMBERS, with Kristian Rossi and Kefas Armando, will hit ComiXology and bring the 4-issue miniseries to a close.
To commemorate this landmark in my career, I’ve been releasing Chambers-themed pin-ups every few days to show you the characters through other artist’s eyes. Previously, I’ve shared the work of Jasen Rosselot, Shaun Ramkissoon and Kelly Williams and today I reveal great piece from Eduardo Jimenez, my artistic collaborator on the upcoming sci-fi/comedy comic, UNIT 44, which we recently funded via Kickstarter.
I appreciate the roster of talented artists who contributed to building on the Chambers universe and I really hope you’ll give the book a read! Enjoy crime? Detectives? Shoot-outs? Hopelessness? This will be right up your alley.
The final countdown begins!
This Wednesday, the final issue of my crime-fiction comic book CHAMBERS will hit ComiXology and bring the series to a close. To mark the event, I’ve been releasing Chambers-themed pin-ups every few days to show you the characters through other artist’s eyes. I’ve previous shared art from Jasen Rosselot and Shaun Ramkissoon and today brings a second piece from artist Kelly Williams.
Kelly is a wonderfully talented dude and his work has been published all over the place. Pick up a copy of Metaphase, which he drew for Alterna Comics, toss him some bucks to draw you a commission or pick up one of his wonderful prints that he sells via his webstore (I highly recommend the limited edition Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles print he made).
I appreciate the roster of talented artists who contributed to Chambers and I know you’ll see them all on high-profile gigs soon enough!
Next Wednesday, the final issue of my crime-fiction comic book CHAMBERS will hit ComiXology and bring the series to a close. It’s exciting (because the trade paperback is coming) but also bittersweet because the project was a ton of fun and after more than a year of living with the characters, story and world, it will take it’s place in my portfolio and represent myself, Kristian Rossi and Kefas Armando as we continue making our way in this crazy industry.
In past posts, I showed off beautiful pin-up work from artists Kelly Williams, Jasen Rosselot and Shaun Ramkissoon, and with this installment, we’re tossing it back to Jasen Rosselot who provided a secondary pin-up of the main characters, Denise and Bruce.
I appreciate Jasen’s contributions, and I’m happy to say that he’s cooking up something new with me that you’ll be seeing soon.
Next week, the final issue of my crime-fiction comic book CHAMBERS will hit comiXology and will mark the end of my first published miniseries.
In past posts I showed off beautiful pin-up work from artists Kelly Williams and Jasen Rosselot, and this week I bring you a piece from my pal, Shaun Ramkissoon. He put together a great pin-up that features Denise, Bruce and Adam, the main characters of Chambers. Since these pin-ups sadly, wouldn’t fit into the collected trade paperback, I still wanted to share his talent with you.
Shaun’s a great guy and I appreciate him taking the time to contribute to the project!
Today marked the launch of my new comic project/experiment called INNOVATION.
Direct your browsers over to www.innovationcomic.com to read the first four pages of the first issue. We’ll be bringing readers a new short story every week in the month of November.
The first installment, “Curiosity,” was drawn by Ken Perry with even more all-star artists to follow.
Unlike my other projects, Innovation is completely FREE TO READ. Give it a read, pass it on and be sure to share your thoughts! I’m excited to hear your thoughts!
Issues 2 and 3 are currently being drawn, but I’m always looking for artists to come on board. If you might be interested in drawing a 4-6 page black and white story to keep Innovation going, click here to see how you can get involved.
