I wish more filmmakers would write comic books.

Summers are great, because I can devote myself full-time to writing. When the school year comes around, I have to divide my interests. I write at the same pace, but my opportunites to be lazy disappear.

FIRST! WELCOME TO ANTIHERO COMICS

The Insight is moving along nicely with the new artist. I’ve seen some of his panel layouts, rough drawings, and character sketches. It all looks amazing. I feel confident about the script, but the art alone will sell this comic. I’m so fortunate to be working with such talented people. Read more
