It's the Summer of 2004. While the rest of America bravely rebuilds after the devastation of 9/11 and the newest Star Wars prequel, Pendleton Ridge has its eyes fixed dreamily on the past. Shielded from the outside world by snow capped mountains and a narrow minded preoccupation with its own history, Pendleton Ridge is a living Thomas Kinkaid painting. Cozy, quaint, widely beloved by old white people, and mind numbingly boring for local teens with nothing to do in their postcard town.

But that's about to change for three students at APHS, when a seemingly harmless prank on the last night of summer awakens a sleeping Curse, and the guilty party finds themselves in more trouble than they had bargained for.

One wild night spirals into a semester of terror, and the group is forced to form a begrudging alliance in the struggle to break the Curse, all the while peeling away at their hometown's meticulously kept image of perfection to reveal the sinister secret living underneath. Psycho prep girls, crazy cult shit, a supernatural stalker, and Myspace drama abound make for a Junior year that is shaping up to be anything but dull.


I am the artist/writer behind bastard comics, a collection of original webcomics ranging from traditional 4-panel gag comics to 6 page auto-bio comics. I'm also the artist for Double Barrel Shogun, a manga-style action comic written by Peter Cooper. Condemned will be completely different from those. It's a long form story to be told in two, maybe three parts, and though it will definitely have some of the irreverent humor that my other comics are known for, it is ultimately a character-driven fantasy/drama.

This is the most ambitious comic project I've ever started. There's a level of quality I'm striving for in both writing and art that can't be achieved on nights and weekends, and that's why I created this Patreon!  Like a lot of comic artists, I do not make a living entirely off of comics, and I hope to change that.  I support myself through a combination of graphic design work, merchandise, conventions, art shows, and even a little bit of dog walking. And as much as I love picking up dog poop, I hope I can eventually eliminate that kind of thing from my life to free up more time on comics! The more support I get from y'all, the more time I can dedicate to this, and the sooner you will get to read new pages.

Condemned will be available on my website for free. However, I will be releasing pages in groups of 3-5, rather than one page at a time. By supporting this comic on Patreon you won't have to wait!

  • For $1 or more, see each page as it is finished
  • For $3 or more, see pages in the early stages - before they are inked and colored
  • Plus, everyone gets a discount on any independently printed issues/sketch zines

If you can't back Condemned on Patreon right now, you can still follow along for free on InstagramTwitterTapas, Tumblr, and DeviantArt! You will have to wait a little longer, but I sincerely hope (and believe) that it will be worth the wait!

Thanks for taking the time to visit my Patreon. :)
