We've started work on a new series!

The Surgeon: American myth, postapocalyptic Western, ronin samurai tale, and the lingering hungover tinnitus of rock n’ roll.  About 15 years after the world falls apart, a nomadic physician struggles to survive in a savage frontier of the poor and powerless, trying to balance her calling as a healer with the necessity of killing for survival. As a consequence, maybe she’s become more skilled with her saber than she is with a scalpel, and she’s trying to get out from under that reputation.

In Chapter 1, Turtle Island, we follow Doc Hanover as she answers a call for medical help that takes her farther west than she’s been -- away from the violence and anarchy she knew back east and away from her past. At the feet of South Dakota’s Black Hills, she finds a surprisingly prosperous and peaceful fort, where destiny has plans for her.


And don't forget, the new issue of SUPER! is just around the corner!

SUPER! is an action-comedy superhero comic that lovingly lampoons anything and everything about the superhero genre, but is not so much of a spoof that it forgets to be an actual action adventure as well. We like to say it's "The Venture Brothers" meets "Astro City". In a world that is as packed to the brim with superhumans as a Marvel or DC universe, there are so many costumed weirdos that being "super" has become commonplace. With literally hundreds, if not thousands, of people with extraordinary powers running around, it's a struggle just to get noticed.

While our whole world is on display, the main story follows the exploits of a ragtag team of underachieving supers in their quest to truly become heroes. Whether foiling a robbery as the surrounding neighborhood is decimated by a 150-foot Utonic robot, or finding themselves encased in ice after glacial fisticuffs with Baron Blizzard and his team of post-apocalyptic hockey miscreants, our heroes simply don't know the meaning of the words “public liability”.
