NOTE ADDED 12-20-12: Since this was posted on my site and all over Facebook yesterday, the Amazon kindle ranking jumped from about a million down to 1100 (#26 in young adult science fiction/fantasy). If I can get this down to the top 100 free kindle downloads, then it will be featured as an exclusive on Amazon. Please download and share. Every little bit helps!
Just found out that my story "The Fifth Room," original published in Twit Puplishing's PULP! series, will be adapted into comic form by Evil Jester Press Comics. This comic line is a new project from Charles Day, creator of Evil Jester Press, and I am beyond excited to be a part of this series. He's going for a pulpy Creepshow-esque vibe, a throwback to the 50's EC comics Tales From the Crypt and Vault of Horror, with the iconic Evil Jester himself introducing each tale. Some big names in the horror field are attached to this project (including Jack Ketchum!) so it's an honor to be included. Coincidentally, I had just started reading the first Walking Dead compendium (issues 1-48) the day I was notified of the acceptance. It's the first comic series I've read in twenty years, and I'm loving the story and artistry involved.
Here's the cover artwork for the first two issues:
NOTE ADDED: 12-15-12: Recently I was contacted by Charles Day, the mastermind behind Evil Jester Press, and was asked to join his staff of writers and artists. Although we don't have an official title for my position yet, we agreed that I would serve as a creative consultant for Evil Jester Comics, helping him read through a growing pile of submissions in the hopes of finding new and exciting talent. I'm very honored to join his crew, and I look forward to seeing some great stories inked and on the stand next year. I have always loved EC comics, and as a kid I read The Vault of Horror and Tales From the Crypt reprints as soon as they hit the stand. I am proud to be a part of what will be a great comic series.
Later my friends!
