The book that makes my heart ache

Hysteria - One Man Gang. The one and only book I never finished, never turned in. The book was plagued with tons of things I don't even want to discuss here, because some stuff is still in dispute. I'd just be airing dirty laundry about people in the business that I shouldn't be airing, even though I know I'm in the right.

I also had an accident while working on it, some dumb drunk chick hit me with her boyfriend's mother's SUV she was joy riding in. Fucked up my hand and neck, and my schedule.

I created more art for this book, worked so hard, went out pocked to pay for promo cards, posters, even hiring help to try and get it done. All for nothing...so far.

My hope is to finish it very soon, and just publish it online till I get the publishing plans settled for the trade/comics.

Ahh, I'm going to stop belly aching now and just post some art from it. Some you may have seen already, some you may not have...


This was the original cover to vol. 2, back when was going to do it at Oni. I eventually decided against it for something more graphic.

Hmm...guess I didn't know all the backstory on why this wasn't finished but no matter. As long as you are moving forward on it.

Awesome.

can you take the O.M.G. GN title to Oni for publishing since they did the first book of yours?
