ENDLESS SUMMER, BOOK ONE: DEAD MAN’S CURVE solicited for June…

After years of working to get it out the door, the graphic novel ENDLESS SUMMER: DEAD MAN’S CURVE has been solicited to appear in shops in June. It’s actually available for preorder just about anywhere you can order books. So have at it!

Written by me, all art, color and letters by Shane White:

On the 1960’s California coast, rogue FBI agent Scott Ivory is determined to root out any threats of potential espionage and recruits a group of young misfits to further his covert government agenda.

Former FBI agent Scott Ivory gathers a group of young kids to counter communist and criminal activities on the streets of the California coast. With a modest budget and a loose agenda, his simple counterintelligence program quickly becomes an outlet for Ivory to use for his own designs, and the kids become pawns in a game of tug-of-war between government agents.

A dark spin on early sixties pop culture, Endless Summer, Vol. 1: Dead Man’s Curve is based on 1960’s Huntington Beach, California–a thrilling sunshine-noir graphic novel rampant with drugs, murder, and government espionage.

MILES TO GO #4 – April 7th

Due to an unexpected death in the family, MILES TO GO #4 was delayed a bit, but will be on stands April 7th.

These things are hard to avoid, as the physical work that goes into creating the book is handled by a small number of people. I write the book, Stephen Molnar does the very heavy lifting and pencils, inks, and, with assistance from Nova Lee-Fortier, colors the book. Following the departure of Thomas Mauer, the book is lettered by Dave Sharpe. Gracious editorial support is provided by Mike Marts, along with Christina Harrington.

Here are the cover and a few preview pages from the issue:

MILES TO GO #1 is out…

…and receiving fantastic reviews! Very gratifying to see so much positive response. Issue one dropped on 9/24. Issue two out in late October.

“This is one of those books where you get to the end of it and realize what a great read it was, that you want more, and that a re-read is necessary right now. ” – The Fandom Post

“‘Miles to Go’ rises above the usual tropes and delivers a suspenseful, smart, and sincere crime story full of pitch perfect characters.” – Multiversity

“Masterful, clean, and attention grabbing. Miles To Go #1 seems like the perfect thriller to usher in the Fall, and I encourage any fan of Crime (with that big ol C) stories to pick this series up before it takes off.” – Comics Bookcase

“Where it all goes after this debut, I seriously have no idea. But, it has me excited and intrigued to find out. That’s the measure of a successful comic, do I want to come back for more? Miles to Go #1 nails that down and then some.” – Graphic Policy

“Once again we see why Aftershock is a go-to publishing house. The writing here is spectacular and the interiors are gorgeous. Did you get yours?” – Reading with a Flight Ring

“Based on just this one issue, it seems like it’s going to be an incredible ride. It did what great comics are supposed to do; it left me wanting more.” – Scoop at Previewsworld.com

“A synopsis of Miles to Go may make someone mistake it for a more generic story of sordid pasts and redemption, but the characters we’ve met so far do wonders to break the series apart from others.” – Comicbook.com8

Here’s a look at the covers for MILES TO GO #2 (out at the end of October!). Standard cover by co-creator Stephen Molnar, and a variant by Jeremy Haun:

’76? Jackie Karma!

Hey, visitors. Have a link to a scan of the fourth JACKIE KARMA story, from ’76 #4 (the cover is from ’76 #5, just because I love it do much).

Jackie remains unfinished, but Ed Tadem and I still have plans to finish it, in a nicer looking format.

Anyway…one of my favorites:

JACKIE KARMA!

Upcoming Conventions and a General Update

CONVENTIONS

We’ll see about New York Comic Con, but as of now I’m doing a couple of upcoming regional shows that might be fun.

On October 3rd, I’ll be in Lawrence, Kansas at Free State Comicon.

Check out the ridiculously great “cover” image by sleeping giant/Lawrence artist Wes Wedman:

And a bit further down the road, I’ll be at the Cedar Rapids Comic Con on February 16th next year. I spent the best years of my childhood in neighboring Mt. Vernon, Iowa, and look forward to a return trip.

The Cedar Rapids show should just about coincide with the release of ALOHA, HAWAIIAN DICK #1 (from Image Comics). As of now, I think we’re looking at a February release. Cover here by Sean Dove:

Interior art is by the amazing Jacob Wyatt:

In other news, I’m working on a couple of new work-for-hire projects at the moment, as well as a couple of long form original concepts. Hopefully all of them will drop in 2016.

So, you know. Watch this space.
