Welcome to the critically-acclaimed sci-fi comic Runners! Here you'll find the first two graphic novels in their entirety, along with bonus behind-the-scenes commentary for most pages. The graphic novels (and other goodies) can also be purchased from the Runners Store. Enjoy the read!

Vol 1. Bad Goods

It's just another day in the life of reluctant smuggler Roka Nostaco and his ragtag alien crew as they struggle to complete a particularly dangerous run for the mob. Their adventure takes them from shootouts with pirates to ship-to-ship dogfights with ruthless bounty hunters, culminating in an all-out, three-way ship, cycle and foot chase through the streets of an alien space station. All the while, they also have to contend with a vengeful mercenary, a ghost from the past and a mysterious alien girl lying unconscious on their cargo bay floor!

Vol 2. The Big Snow Job

Hard times have fallen on Roka Nostaco and the smuggling crew of the Khoruysa Brimia. Tired of scraping by on small-time runs for petty criminals, they take on a big job to get back into the top tier of mob-level work. But high pay comes with high risk, and if the freezing climate of Planet Ciceron doesn't kill them, the hostile native population might. Assuming they don't all kill each other first! Success could put them back on track, but are they in the driver's seat or just pawns in a much bigger double-cross?

Broken Frontier Anthology Now Available

Attention comic readers! The Broken Frontier Anthology that I contributed to last year is now available on comiXology! It’s over 300 pages of sci-fi, superhero, and action adventure, with 27 short stories about exploration and breaking boundaries and more than 50 creators. Check it out here!

I had previously posted a couple of the inked pages from my story, but here are those same pages in color. It was a lot of fun to do and had been a while since my last bit of comic work. Very much looking forward to getting back to more comic work in the near future!

Broken Frontier inked pages

A while back, I mentioned that I was contributing a short story to the Broken Frontier Anthology, which ran a successful campaign on Kickstarter. Thanks to everybody who backed the project and helped make it happen!

I am currently working on my 8-pages (in between the usual freelance workload) and so far, so good! All the pages are inked and I’m now working on the coloring. It’s pretty exciting to be doing some actual comic pages again, since it has been a while. Anyway, here is a sneak preview of the first 2 inked pages:

DAVE School Runners animated short online!

Runn2_DAVESch

A while back, I mentioned that the DAVE (Digital Animation and Visual Effects) School in Orlando would be doing a RUNNERS animated short as a final class project. It is now DONE and online!!

Last week they flew me down to check out the final film and attend the class graduation. It was a real treat to see the animation… in 3-D!…at the local cineplex theater!! And it was great to meet many of the graduating students afterwards.

As with the last short (back in 2006), I gave them free reign to adapt the comic and characters as they saw fit. I didn’t give any input along the way, so certain things are a little off, like some character proportions and ship dimensions. But those are minor things that don’t detract from the overall awesomeness of seeing RUNNERS animated (again)!

Broken Frontier Anthology

I’m excited to announce that I will be contributing a comic short story to the Broken Frontier Anthology, which just launched on Kickstarter! It’s over 250 pages, with 40 creators telling stories about breaking boundaries and exploring the great unknown. While I won’t be doing a Runners story, I will be doing an all-new, one-off adventure set on the high seas. It’ll be really fun for me to squeeze in a new comic story, something I haven’t been able to do in a while due to my freelance workload. So please check out the campaign, pledge to get your copy of the book, and help spread the word!

WMIG Exhibit – Runners art

WMIG_exhib_MAP2015

Just wanted to post a photo of a recent gallery exhibit that I am currently a part of. I’m proud to be a member of the Western Massachusetts Illustrators’ Guild, a local group of extremely talented picture book artists. For the month of April, a selection of original art (including 2 of my Runners pages) is on display at the MAP Gallery in Eastworks (Easthampton, MA). Looking forward to exhibiting more with the WMIG group in the future!
