Overcast – Flash Fiction at Shotgun Honey

shohon

Please take a look at a piece that just went up at Shotgun Honey. A 700-word crime flash fiction story called “Overcast.”

http://shotgunhoney.net/fiction/overcast-by-b-clay-moore.html

As I mentioned on Twitter, the story was inspired by this small piece that artist Doc Shaner posted on Twitter one day:

My intention is to spend a little more time with prose in 2015.

Bit Torrents: ’76

Found ’76 on a bit torrent site and downloaded it. Not the best job scanning, pirates.

But here are three pages from JACKIE KARMA:

76-004

76-005

76-006

 

We really are working to finish this one and present it in a worthy format. I’m going to work on making the existing five issues available, I think.

OLD DOG downloadable PDF/CBR/CBZ

boxer

For a limited time, I’m offering the stand alone OLD DOG story from BAD KARMA VOLUME ONE, along with the OLD DOG prose piece from the same book, in PDF, CBR and CBZ formats.

Just send a Paypal payment of at least .99 (99 cents!) to:

Catspaw1@aol.com

And I’ll send you an email link to all three versions of the book.

You’re free to pay more, obviously. But .99 gets you the link. If you’ve already ordered the BAD KARMA hardcover or PDF, the link is free.

Here’s some information and preview art from OLD DOG:

Written by B. Clay Moore
Art and color by Christopher Mitten
Cover by Ben Templesmith
30 pages

Chicago, the roaring twenties: JACKSON (JACK) BOXER was a Chicago detective on a special detail that made him no friends. In a city overrun with corruption, working in a police department as likely to take a bribe as serve a warrant, Boxer was given free rein to investigate this corruption on his own terms. Integral in bringing federal cases against both criminals and cops, Boxer’s career in law enforcement effectively ended when his wife and young son were killed in a suspicious apartment fire. No one was ever charged with the murders, but Boxer took his cue, retiring to a quieter life as an insurance claims investigator.

Los Angeles, 1950: Twenty years later, Boxer has been asked to operate off the books in much the same way for the LA police department. To entice him out of retirement, LA Police CAPTAIN HARRY CAVANAUGH, once a Chicago beat cop, is dangling a bit of information he claims to own: the identities of the crooked cops that murdered Jack Boxer’s family.

Despite initial misgivings, Boxer embarks on one last quest, shotgun at his side, and joined eventually by Cassandra Falcon, a women who came to Los Angeles chasing dreams that soured into nightmares. Cavanaugh holds the ace in the deck as Boxer keeps tags on the department’s shadowy Gangster Squad; the gangsters that work behind the scenes to influence power in the city; and the assorted lowlifes and high livers that populate the LA scene.

LEGENDS OF THE DARK KNIGHT goes LIVE

Please consider dropping 99 cents on the first chapter (of three) of the Batman story I did with good pal Ben Templesmith:

http://www.readdcentertainment.com/Legends-of-the-Dark-Knight-2012-4/digital-comic/DIG001548

People seem to be enjoying it, and I know I had a lot of fun writing it and seeing what Ben did with the story.

So, here. Have some glimpses.

Digital Batman announced

DC announced their new digital first Batman title today, and Ben Templesmith and I created one of the stories that will be featured:

In addition to the Bat/Joker image in that USA Today piece, Ben tossed this awesome Joker sketch up on his blog:

I have to say, I had more fun writing this story than anything I’ve done in a while. Working with Ben was a complete blast, and I’m pretty excited to be writing his first real mainstream superhero work.

More details as they’re announced!
