Just a heads up for everyone to keep their ocular units peeled for exciting stuff from the Small Press Commandos, a group of passionate indie comics creators (of which I am a part) that are trying something fun and unique. We’ve been paired up, given an info packet on a particular theme, and now we’ve got only one week to create a short comic story. That’s full production — concept, script, pencils, inks, colors, letters — the whole nine yards in just a week!
Our first assignment is Jack Kirby… a hell of a way to kick things off, as I’m sure you’ll agree. This first round ends Monday, May 30, 2011. We’ll be deploying our comics throughout next week, so keep checking the official blog!

This past weekend I was a guest on the awesome Geekscape.net video show and podcast! Along with Alphonso McAuley of the FOX comedy Breaking In, we talk comics, nerds in love, video games, and of course, Footprints. It was a lot of fun, so thanks to Jonathan London and the other Geekscape folks for having me on!
Watch the full episode here.
The super cool comics website Comic Related was kind enough to take a look at Footprints, and they gave us a glowing review! Here’s an excerpt:
Something I instantly liked about FOOTPRINTS was that it read like some impossible film noir playing in my head. Every time Foot spoke it was like I was hearing his deep, gravelly voice in my mind and smelling the cigarette smoke in the room while Saxophone-heavy Jazz played in the background…the picture painted with a few selective sentences and the artistic style was shockingly vivid for me.
Be sure to read the entire review, and head over to our Kickstarter page to read the entire first issue!
Just wanted to let everyone know that Footprints #1 is now available for your perusal for absolutely free at such fine places like our Kickstarter campaign, Guerilla Geek, A Comic Book Blog, and CC2K. We’d love to hear your feedback on the book if you haven’t read it, and we urge you to pledge to our Kickstarter if you even get the slightest fuzzy feeling from that bastard Jersey Devil 🙂
