Super Haters digital comic card

Wednesday, September 12th, 2012

In my opinion, the digital format is where the Super Haters thrive. Digital is how new Super Haters comics are produced every week. It’s where the colors pop just right and where I get to try out storytelling tricks that don’t work the same way in print.

That’s why I’m thrilled to bring you this new digital comic card (DCC) packed full of Super Haters stories and extras. Debuting at SPX 2012, this is the ultimate way to own the digital adventures of Destruct-O-Tron and Mind’s Eye.

Here’s what you get on this DCC (last updated 02.09.13):
– Super Haters v1 eBook (72 pages, PDF)
– Super Haters v2 eBook (82 pages, PDF)
– Super Haters v3 eBook (78 pages, PDF)
– Super Haters v4 eBook (80 pages, PDF)
– Super Haters Guest Artists v1 eBook (32 pages, PDF)
– Super Haters extras v1 art book (26 pages, PDF)
– Exclusive DCC audio commentary (MP3)

And here’s what’ll be added to this DCC soon:
– Super Haters Guest Artists v2 eBook (TBD)

Currently, this DCC can be redeemed at dropcards.com/comics by entering the unique download code found on the back of the card. If you’re interested in owning your own Super Haters DCC, email me for details.

Pictures of my comics: a walking tour

Thursday, February 23rd, 2012

Yesterday, I had to get some Stick Cats pages cut, and I decided to hunker down and fold them at the same place. Here’s a serene shot of the folding in progress:

Later, on the way to my next destination, I passed by Pittsburgh’s Stephen Foster statue… the same statue which is at the center of the plot of my Time Log comics. So I figured it’d be a great time for a photo op:

I left that copy of Time Log at the statue. I hope it’s found a good home!

Then it was onto my final stop — Phantom of the Attic Comics (Oakland) on Craig Street. I picked up some awesome comics (thx to Wayne for pulling those issues of Black Panther and Bill & Ted for me!). And I dropped off my newly packaged AudioShocker Comics Archives v1 digital comic cards (thx to Jimmy!):

I’ll have all of these items and more at my upcoming appearances at STAPLE in Austin, TX on March 3-4 and the Buffalo Small Press Book Fair in Buffalo, NY on March 24.

And I’m sure I’ll also have them in some form or another at SPX this Fall in Bethesda, MD (yes, I’m officially an exhibitor).

Listen to me talk, watch me (sorta) use an iPad

I was the lucky winner of a contest held by TopWebComics.com at the end of March. The prize? An iPad!!!

This video is my thank you to Richard from TWC, and it’s also a chance for me to show off Super Haters on the iPad, not to mention Time Log on the Kindle app (which I obviously don’t know how to use very well). Plus, there’s a little peak at the AudioShocker Comics Archives v1 digital comic card.

Oh, hey, while you’re at it, you should go vote for Super Haters on TWC!

Goodbye Comic Books… Hello Comic Cards

Comic Cards

Okay, yeah, I skipped Green Thursdays yesterday. Sorry!!! I’m in a bit of a time crunch as next weekend’s SPACE nears (among many MANY other things…), and stick figure Green Lantern seemed like the least of my concerns.

But I would like to take a moment share something with you — what you’re looking at up there is a bundle of 100 Dropcards that I ordered for this upcoming convention season. (Not familiar with Dropcards? You can learn more here.)

Look, printing is difficult. There are a lot of options and a lot of complications. And, frankly, it’s not economical.

I love comic books and I always will, but I’m looking towards the future… specifically, I’m banking on what you see above. I’m calling them comic cards.

The concept is simple — you buy the comic card and gain access to up to 500 MB of original comics and extras. To download the material to your computer or mobile device, all you need to do is go to my personalized URL (in this case, I chose dropcards.com/comics) and enter in the code on the back of your card.

It’s that easy. High quality digital comics and behind-the-scenes material for a price lower than two printed comic books. I think that sounds pretty damn good.

EDIT (5/2/11): I’ve posted a description of the AudioShocker Comics Archives v1 digital comic card, including a more detailed description of the content as well as how the card works. Check it out!
