Hey-Kids-Comics

Hey kids, free comic! So the Eisner nominations came out today and yeah, I’m a little salty that No Mercy didn’t get anything. So to assuage my general pettiness, I thought i’d give you for free a copy of No Mercy #9, the standalone issue we’d hoped to get a nod for Best Single Issue with. Download it here! Share away! You can buy the rest of the series here, or at your local comics store / bookstore. Or check it out for free from your local library! Also please consider checking out the awesome solo work of my amazing collaborators, @carlaspeedmcneil (line art) and @nonsequential (colour art). As always, big thanks to @imagecomics for letting us publish our weird stories therel. 

Warning: this is a story about troubled teen camps / conversion therapy. If you are remotely likely to be triggered by it please DO NOT READ. (And, ::hugs::).

I’m so excited! The just-published anthology called Hey Kids, Comics! True-Life Tales from the Spinner Rack, which contains a piece I wrote exclusively for the project, is now available to order on Etsy (for those of us who prefer not to shop on Amazon).

I absolutely encourage you all to pick up a copy of this book. It’s packed with heartfelt stories, mostly from the childhoods of comic book legends, authors, journalists, TV and film writers, and just plain fans - all based around a love of comics. I know many of you will recognize the names of the contributors, relate to their stories, and recognize nostalgic tidbits from your own childhoods.

My own story of how I started my relationship with my partner, “The Black Cat and the Gentleman,” is the tenth piece in the book. It’s a bit off the beaten path for this collection, but I am honored to be included - to add a little variety, and a little cosplay :) Thank you to Rob Kelly for all your hard work - this is an amazing collection. I can’t wait for you guys to read it!
