Conan 12 preview

There is a preview floating around the web for my last issue of Conan. Here are the pencil versions.

Enjoy, cause it looks like issue 12 is the last comic you'll see from me for a while.

Fun while it lasted.

Best Vampire ever


It's Vampire week on Comic Twart. Guess which Vampire I picked?



Tuesday, November 22, 2011


Hey everyone,

Check out this cover for THEY, a new horror novel from Jesus Gonzalez. Jesus is a friend of mine,a wonderful writer and his book is available for pre-order now from the fine folks at Thunderstorm books. Horror fans should definitely check out Jesus' work, and consider giving THEY a shot.

I got to do the cover for the book and wanted to share a bit of the process with you. It was fairly straight forward in that I painted it by hand, then added color digitally. I fiddled with the design of the cover, title and spine, some of which was used by the publisher. Bare in mind you're seeing my ideas with all the blemishes left in. You process fans can have fun comparing.

This first version of the book is a collector's edition, and I believe a mass market version is in the works. So this is your chance to get the book in it's limited, collector's form. I believe we may be signing some too, so stay tuned for more info on that.

It's my week to pick the theme for Comic Twart, and I went with Chel from Road to El Dorado. I didn't come within a mile of capturing the charm of the character, and managed to screw up SEVERAL drawings of this piece (which I'll post later in the week in a little process post).

But, let's face it. You just can't compete with this...

"The Hip, the HIP!"


Anyway, here's my finished piece.

Storm Watch

We here in Central PA are bracing for a freak, VERY early snow storm! We might get as much as 8 inches of snow here, and it has everyone thinking a collective "WTF!?" here.

In the meantime, I was commissioned to draw Storm.

Coincidence? I think NOT my friends! I THINK NOT!!

Greatest Zombie of all time! The Tarman!

It's ZOMBIES week over on Comic Twart, and with the Halloween season upon us I expect scary things from the crew!

I chose to draw the one Zombie that creeped me out as a kid - The Tarman, from Return of the Living Dead!

Seriously, I once gave a person nightmares just DESCRIBING Tarman to them. That creepy walk, the nasty slimy melted flesh, and that voice!

I might also draw Trash from the same movie... but worry the fellas will yell at me for drawing a nude Zombie ;-)


PS - Before anyone hammers me about Zombie lore and who they think the "greatest" is,I should add that I haven't seen very many Zombie flicks. Never seen Walking Dead, or the slew of new films that have come out. I think ROTLD was about all I could handle ;-)

So to each their own!

Black Metal Vol. 2 pin up


Ok, so a book I've been looking forward to for a long time is out, Black Metal 2! If you read volume one, you know just how awesome Rick Spears and Chuck BB are! I was won over by volume 1, and when Chuck asked me to contribute a pin up to #2 I was all like "DUDE!"... or something like that.

Anyway, I did this...

And Chuck is all like, "We should print it like THIS!"...

And I was like "my DUDE!"

Do yourself, and these fantastic creators, a favor - check out the book. Ask your comic retailer for it. Order it online. Telly our friends!

You can read a free preview for it over on the Oni Press website.



Raising Crazy, go read!

Hey everyone!

I hope you're all reading my webcomic, Raising Crazy!

If not, please give it a read, tell your friends, pass it on :-)

Buck, buck, buck, BUCKY!

Funny thing about being on Comic Twart. I'm constantly asked to draw characters that I've not only never drawn before, but never even THOUGHT to draw before. Like Captain America's "Robin", Bucky Barnes. I like that the group forces me out of my comfort zone. Promotes growth.

It's Bucky Barnes week over on Comic Twart. I expect we'll see some goodies from the fellas, three of which are or have worked on Captain America.

Fear Agent 31 finally shipping!

Hey everyone!

So, apparently Fear Agent 31 is shipping tomorrow! Rick says it's been a year, which is hard to believe. But then, I drew Fear Agent before the entire arc of CONAN, which I just wrapped up. So, I suppose it has been a long time. As I've stated before, I really have NO idea why there was a hold up. I know we'd all wrapped it up a long time ago.

Anyway, I figured I'd repost this preview from a while back.

You can see the full color preview here.

Catwoman's revenge!

Stressed over this whole Batman/Catwoman sex scene thing? I made you an alternate ending, cause I like you like that ;-)

Let that be a lesson to you. A person who steals, might black mail you too.

BTW - I haven't read the actual comic. So, yeah, there you go.


EDIT: I didn't see this coming! The reaction to the strip has been kinda awesome, with people reposting it on Tumblr pages over and over, and even some news sites picking it up!

Check it out -
"Mike Hawthorne should be writing Catwoman"

"Catwoman Gets Fixed: The Improved 'Catwoman' #1"

Thanks, everyone! :-)
