decided to finally start using twitter. so if for some reason you want to keep up with my public ramblings in 140 characters or less.
then follow at your own risk:
My new comic project Snow and the Samurai goes live this Holiday Weekend Christmas 2011.
It will be an exclusively online webcomic that will be updated every week until the story is complete.
Snow and the Samurai is a supernatural revenge story that takes place in a fantasy realm with magic and samurai.
While the title character is named Snow, like Snow White, you’ll soon discover that my story is not exactly based on the Snow White fairy tale. It’s kind of an anti-fairy tale.
This has been a story I’ve been wanting to do for many years. Originally I wrote it as a film treatment that I registered with the WGA in 2002 as The Legend of Snow White. Finally, I can share it with everyone in comicbook form. I haven’t done comics in years since working on Iron Wings and David and Goliath both published by Image Comics. So it’s actually lots of fun to be writing and illustrating comics again.
Releasing it in this online format is new to me and is an exciting experiment so that everyone can have a chance to enjoy it. I hope you will read it, follow it and share it with everyone you know. You can read it from the beginning here: Snow and the Samurai: Chapter One Thanks!

He’s no Michelangelo… poor thing did the best he could…
Two undercover Assassins attend a Masquerade Ball and only one will leave alive.
I just thought Venetian masks would be a perfect fit if the worlds of James Bond met Spy Vs Spy met Sin City.
Black and white with no color, because I wanted to humbly pay tribute to some of my favorite artists that have used black and white masterfully, like Alex Toth, Will Eisner, Mike Mignola and Frank Miller to name a few.
lots of inspiration around, so many notes for this and that, just need to focus, pick something to do and get down and do some serious work.
1)The Hurt Locker
3)Avatar (won’t be surprised if it wins)
Kathryn Bigelow (come on, doooo iiit!!!)

digging this song. big cudi fan. and i love the visuals of the video. awesome.
I love this film. so suspenseful! everyone must watch this. best film about modern warfare in the middle east. all the other ones like jarhead are forgettable. but this is going to be a classic. new found respect for director kathryn bigelow.
the last nick hornby book i read was in 2005: “a long way down”. i remember getting it the day it came out and reading it in one-two sittings.
nick hornby is known for books like “high fidelity”, “about a boy” and “fever pitch”, which all got turned into films.
but he just popped into my head today and i started to wonder if he had written anything new.
to my surprise, he had come out with two books since i last checked!
a novel called “slam” in 2007 and a brand new book, “juliet, naked” just three months ago. i guess it’s pretty clear i’m not exactly keeping track of the latest book releases. plus, 2007-2009 has been a crazy distracting period for me.
so i just ordered both of them in hardcover! and i’m glad “slam” is still available in hardcover even though it’s from 2007.
i have a thing about preferring to read hardcover books over the paperback format. the print is larger and easier to read and the book’s spine and cover won’t get all cracked and scratched after one reading. this habit about book quality probably started with my obsessive comicbook collecting when i was younger. i liked keeping my books in good condition and while i’m not that anal or much of a collector of things anymore, some old habits die hard.
anyway, i’m excited to do some serious catching up. it’s been too long since i read something from one of my favorite contemporary writers.
this is from 20 years ago. wow. so be it. talk hard.
12 friggin’ years for james cameron to do another movie! finally!
i can’t believe avatar is finally here!
i had a “wow, i wish i made this” moment after watching this. :P
love it. well done!
no real reason for this, except it makes me smile. cookie monster is the shiiit!
update: this has now been taken down and plastered over. glad i shot the pic in time.
