Objectives:

To reach people through my stories and art and bring a little joy into their lives... and, of course, a chance to correspond with others of like mind. Yes, I'd like a fan base--anyone in the industry does--but a chance to actually connect with another like-minded soul isclick here to e-mail me. Don't be shy. Drop a line.

Experience

   I've been in the comics industry, on & off (mostly off) for better than 3 decades. In that time I've handled about every aspect of the industry, from
concept to distribution & all points between. Following are a few of the places
that have published, or currently publish, my work, in a number of capacities.

1984: HEROES' BLOOD Graphic Novel................................. Oracle Press
(this one never got published, but I use some of the images occasionally in downloads)
This one I co-scripted, pencilled, inked (greytones), and lettered. Never got
fully paid, since I assume the publisher ran short of funds. Still, it was good
experience on what the industry can throw at you. 128 pages total story.
I still have the original cover concept painting (unfinished, due to publisher's
financial state). Anyone interested in me finishing it, let me know.
 
1987: ZOLASTRAYA & THE BARD, Twilight Twins Productions, issues2& 3
Issue 2: two pinups &; two ads, 1 for a "Z & B "T"" & 1 for the aforementioned HEROES' BLOOD, that was finally supposed to see
publication, but didn't.
Issue 3: pinup, inside back cover
   Unfortunately, this fine title went the way of many of its lesser fellows in
the Implosion. Terry & Zola should try again in today's market. Could be a
different story today.
 
1987: The REALM, from Arrow Comics, issues 10 & 11
Full letters on both issues.
Dunno what happened after 11, but Arrow was restructuring at the time, so..
 
1999: The SOULWATCHER, from Triumph Comics, issues 2 & 3
Issue 2: Cover art, interior pinup
Issue 3: Cover art (1st printing), interior finishes & inks
Another publisher who bowed out too early.
 
2003: TERRA 2920, from DynaMite Press, issue 1 of 6 available now by
"e" contact with me. (2nd print run 2004)
This series is one of my solo projects that's finally seeing release. Story, art
& letters are by me.
"Mutants, mayhem, adventure, intrigue, romance & betrayal in a land where
only the crazy survive." And that's just the TIP of the iceberg.
 
2004: ACTUAL COMICS #1, from Gem Studios (sound familiar?) one shot(?)  (Also published by CF Comics, in a variant edition. Don't know if any of that edition are available). Also published by CLASSIC FUN COMICS.
Another of my solo projects, this time in a more whimsical vein. An homage/parody of the Superman mythos, Oopsyman has a heart of gold, a
brain of mud, & a smell like a Florida swamp.
 
 
2004: PORTAL PRIME, from Findlay Comics, in COMICS #s 2+3. Lost contact with Findlay, but series
picked up by DynaMite Press for 2005 release.
