On a cold, rainy November morning, I proudly took delivery of my shipment of Evil Inc: Under New Management books!

I apologize for the lack of updates. The books were held in Customs for longer than either I or the printer had expected, and I didn’t want to post a series of “not yet — soon!” posts. Thank you to everyone for your patience and understanding! Once I have my books transferred from the loading dock to my storage space, I can begin shipping in earnest.

In the meantime — HURRAY! WE DID IT!

If you don’t have yours yet, this is an excellent time to pre-order your book!

Evil Inc eComic #46 — Best Nemeses

(Free to $5+ Patreon backers!)

Miss Match has been nominated for a “Nemmie” award, but she’s going to have to beat off some stiff competition! Meanwhile, Captain Heroic tries to infiltrate the awards show by impersonating a villain. The simmering romance between the two supers comes to a boil in this episode of Evil Inc!

Advance Your Art

A while back, I recorded an interview with Yuri Cataldo of Advance Your Art podcast. During the conversation, we took a deep dive on my early path towards becoming a cartoonist. We talk about my college years, my years in the newspaper industry, and my eventual transition into full-time professional comics. If you’ve ever been curious about where I came from, this is a very well-done interview.

THEN they talk about how they adapt their writing processes to address those issues. NEXT, they talk about the dangers of sharing your self-doubt on social media.
