WEB COMICS

THE MAN WHO HATED SUNSETS A 3 page short published in Kiosko Web Anthology #1. I did the script and letters while the art is by Miguel Santos. An experiment in adapting something moody I once wrote that came off really well (at least I think so :) )

REALLY BAD COMIX (2005-2006) An experiment in creating a web comic using available public domain content and technology. The humor is pretty crude (South Park style) and is recommended for mature audiences only.

HEAVY GLOW QUARTERLY SHORTS A series of hardboiled graphic shorts that ran in the e-zine HEAVY GLOW. Stories include MAGNUM OPUS TRILOGY, HOMECOMING, CONFESSION, TEMPTATION. Each was a 4-5 page b and w graphic short (intended for mature audiences because of violent content).
