Frozen

Frozen #2

I wrote my first Frozen pitch in the summer of 2014. It took us two years to go from there to a July 2016 solicitation and a lot of hard work was going on behind the scenes.

The journey began at San Diego Con 2012 when my collaborator on the Ape Entertainment Strawberry Shortcake series, Amy Mebberson, introduced me to Aaron Sparrow and James Silvani, now the creative team on Joe Books’ Darkwing Duck series. They were talking about gathering potential talent for future Disney projects when I walked up and interrupted the conversation. They had the bright idea to try me out and I wrote a Gummy Bears story with no expectation of that ever turning into anything.

Joe Books eventually bought the Disney license and we all had a memorable dinner at San Diego 2014. I’ve loved working with Joe Books all the way through and I recommend following them on Twitter because the projects they’ve announced so far are just the beginning. It’s been challenging to bring one of Disney’s most high-profile properties to comics but it’s also been hugely rewarding, especially working with my editor Jen Hale and publisher Deana McFadden.

There’s still time to pre-order Frozen #1

Eternal Descent

Eternal Descent

I loved getting the chance to work with Lexi Leon on his Eternal Descent project and write a comic that follows his iconic heavy metal angel through his tortured past.

More info from the publisher:

Eternal Descent finally unravels the heroic past of the nomadic warrior angel Sirian with Eternal Descent: Sirian#1! It’s the latest in a series of all new one-shot origin stories exploring the major players in this heavy metal fantasy series. With his supernatural sonic abilities and a fondness for lost causes, Sirian travels through Heaven and Hell, haunted by the faces of those he couldn’t save. Now, Sirian makes a final stand against Pit Lord Loki and his demonic Hellspawn to spare one mortal soul.

WHAT IS IT: This is a brand-new one-shot companion and sequel to the first 2 volumes of Eternal Descent!

FOR FANS OF: Supernatural, Horror, Hard Rock, and Heavy Metal!

WHAT HAPPENS: Izanami lost everything when she lost her songwriter soul mate, including the music that gave her life meaning. One night she meets a mysterious man named Sirian who claims to have watched humanity throughout the ages. The fallen Seraph, haunted by his past battles with Loki and the Hellspawn, has only a few days to save Izanami before the next shooting star.
