My FIRST EVER Vertigo Comics work comes out July 1st (the same day as Nickelodeon Magazine #1, coincidentally enough. Dang, that’s gonna be a rad day!) in the pages of “Vertigo Quarterly – SFX: Slam”.
Nathan Fox (Heavy Metal, Playboy) did the cover, Adam Cadwell (Blood Blokes) took care of the interiors. Both of those dudes are geniuses.
I am so, so psyched about this. You guys don’t even know. Grant Morrison, Neil Gaiman, Garth Ennis, Warren Ellis, Alan Moore, Gerard Way–all of my favorite authors produced their absolute best work for Vertigo. It’s an honor unlike any other to put some time in over there…
And for those of you who are more into DC Comics proper? The superhero stuff? Well…just wait a couple of months…

Hey! I’ve tweaked my Patreon a bit to make it basically just a $4 pay wall, behind which sits YEARS’ WORTH of comics, pitches, scripts, and articles about the biz, waiting for you to peruse.
WEREWOLF COP – A pitch by Eric Esquivel & John “Dadicus” West
The ridiculously talented John “Dadicus” West and I started putting this together a few years ago…but then Lowell Dean put out that film WOLFCOP, and took the wind out of our sails (that Canadian rogue!).
I should’ve kept going. Andrew Klavan put out a book about a year later called (and I’m not joking) WEREWOLF COP: A NOVEL.
Anyway, here it is: “A police procedural with a supernatural twist; basically “Law and Order: Teen Wolf Division…”

SONIC UNIVERSE #74 comes out this Weds via @ArchieComics ! I’ve got a strip in there featuring Sonic & Nicole!
Wonder why your 90’s-Nostalgia-Sense is tingling? It’s because Papercutz is bringing back Nickelodeon Magazine in June of this year!
Bonus cool news: I’m writing all of the Sanjay and Craig comics that are gonna be featured therein!
Bonus bonus cool news: And then we’re gonna collect those comics (along with a bunch of original content) as graphic novels!
