Quitters, Inc.

A few years ago I adapted Stephen King's amazing short story: "Quitters, Inc." into a comic book. King's "Night Shift" collection has always been one of my favorites and the sense of paranoia and dread he gives Quitters is really excellent and un-putdown-able. Haruka made some crazy concoctions using crushed up cigarettes and water, and actually painted all 43 pages with tobacco. We thought it would be an interesting approach since the entire story is about quitting smoking. After we finished, we brought it around to a few comic conventions. I even met Frank Darabont and handed him a copy. But alas, nothing much happened with it. So flash forward to a few years later and a reader asked me to upload it to DeviantArt. I figured it was about time we brush off the layers of dust. So here it is. Enjoy!

Broadsword's Map

I commissioned artist JC MCNAMEE to do this piece and he really nailed it. I grew up reading the Conan novels published by ACE, and I wanted Broadsword's 1st book to open up like those classics with a detailed map of the world you're about to enter. I filled it full of Robert E. Howard references. (El Spragdea is a reference to L. Sprague De Camp.) At first, I was going to draw it, but then I grew curious to see what JC would do with it. He has a raw, unique style that perfectly matches this brutal apocalyptic world. He even went the extra mile and designed the runes around the border. (Yes, they actually say something.) It was also his idea to add the baddies in the four corners. These guys look sick and demented. I couldn't be happier. Now to place this with the rest of the pages and finish the dang book already. To be continued... To see more from JC go here.

SEQAPUNCH QUARTERLY

Seqapunch Quarterly is a really cool and unique publication. They showcase a wide variety of fresh visions & new styles wrapped around a different theme each issue. Their work reminds one that comics are a medium that can tell ANY kind of story.
I'm happy to say that a new chapter in the Broadsword epic has just been published in Seqapunch Quarterly Volume 7. The theme for this issue is "Change" and there are many interesting interpretations by a host of talented cartoonists from around the globe. My offering called "Hit the Head" involves toilets, pajamas, a talking cheeseburger named Kaiser Saucy (thanks Hari Ravi), and a nod to H.P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu mythos.

Seqapunch is available at comic shops across the USA, or you can order a copy here. 

If you're interested in submitting work to them check out their group on Deviant Art here.
