About Me

“You don’t want to show me nothing, but you’re telling me everything.” 

Good news and bad news.  I thought I was going to have a treat for everyone, but it didn’t quite work out like I had hoped.  As I said before, Unwanted Heroes is really picking up speed and moving along.  I wanted to have 3 full chapters done, before I started posting.  Each chapter will run about 3 pages.  With posting every two weeks, it would keep me from falling behind.  Well I thought I was finishing up the end of chapter 3 today, when I realized that with what I was doing, chapter 3 was going to end up around 5-6 pages long.  So, what was supposed to be chapter 3 is instead chapter 4.  Now I have to close out the end of chapter 3 with something else.  It’s cool, though.  It gives me a chance to introduce something early that I hadn’t thought of before. 

“You’re part eggplant.” 

Unfortunately, the steam on UWHs is putting me behind on 117 Days in Hell.  These things can’t be helped.  I really like the way this is forming and everything is playing out, so I’m just riding with it.  It’s really interesting and exciting.  It’s like that scene from Wrath of Khan when they showed Genesis forming.  “Yeah, it kinda like that.” 

“You’re a cantaloupe.” 

You know what, I’m just gonna toss this out there for no good raisin.  I want to do a film adaptation of Tailgunner Jo.  Not sure if I ever mentioned that before, but I’m saying it now.  So, if you wanna take another idea from me Hollywood, this is it.  It’s been on my mind for a while now, and I think it would really work.  Perfect blend of a movie.  Haven’t heard of it before?  Ha!  Very few have.  Imagine how hard it was for me to find my missing issues.  Tailgunner was released by DC in prestige format under their direct distribution.  In the mid-80’s, Marvel and DC had some of their titles under direct to comic books stores only.  Newsstands were dying hard, and comic stores were the wave of the future.  There was more to it than just that, but you get the gist.  Dazzler was Marvel’s first direct only book.  I keep tossing around the idea of translating Epic’s Steelgrip Starkey, but I think that’d make a better cartoon series on Cartoon Network.  Can’t find that one either?  Ha!  Good luck.  It’s even harder to find.  Like looking for the only issue of the Ford Fairlane comic.  Impossible. 

“I think I’ll have one of those Chesterfields now.”

Last but not least, HeroesCon.  Trying to work out some details now.  Looking at doing a collaboration with Rebel Stars Studios comics from North Carolina.  I’ll keep you posted as things develop.  You can visit Rebel Stars here, and see why I’m pretty psyched about working with them:

  Well, if things go well over the next couple of days, I’ll post UWH this weekend.  Fingers crossed.  In the spirit of UWH…

“Slip out the back before they know you were there and at the worst you’ll see nobody cares.  You don’t wanna be around when it all goes down.  Even heroes know when to be scared.”
