You can have a dream for a very long time before seeing it come true. Sometimes, no matter how hard you work, it seems like it’s never going to happen. That the dreams are just that, ethereal snippets of a life you wistfully remember wanting while the grind of daily life and the reality of responsibilities chip away at your resolve to make them come true.
A while ago I had posted here that I was getting into making comics. Dozens of scripts later and there has been very little movement on that front. I have submitted scripts to Dark Horse, Image, TopCow and even participated in Mark Millar’s open call.
While I continue to try and make this dream come true I thought I’d share the pages from the first collaboration. It fell apart for reasons I’m not going to go into (no ill will on either side) but you can see where it was going.

Out of nowhere the other day lyrics popped into my head. This is actually an unusual occurrence for me as I don’t write songs or even poetry much anymore. However, now and again, a lyric or a verse will come up and it will simmer in my cranium, knocking around like a loose bolt that I just can’t shake out.

Ever wonder what your nightmares sound like? I did. A long time ago I was successful in putting two nightmares into sound.

They should still match. Continue reading The Sounds Inside My Head
If you follow me on Twitter (and you should be doing so) you may have caught some previews of a comic series I’m working on. Perhaps even discussions with other Twitter folks about a title for it. (Melissa and I tend to have some very interesting conversations on Twitter.) I haven’t said much about it because, like so many things I write for comics, I haven’t found an artist yet. That’s a rant for another time though because today I’m letting everyone read the first nine pages of issue three. You don’t get to read the awesome issue two where the main characters, Rosie and Mara, have a very interesting post sex fight that, to me and those who’ve read it, is one of the best character interaction moments I’ve ever written.
