King of the Monsters!

Due to the momentous event that is the recent release of Godzilla: King of the Monsters I wanted to revisit my encounters with the king, courtesy of IDW comics. (Note: I normally don’t revisit old work, but sometimes is can be a lot of fun.)

Now if you stayed for the credits of the there was a question that was posed in an article headline, “What does a king mean to a god?” Get ready cause the ultimate slam fest is gearing up to go down.

GNAR the titan PIGS!

With the release of Cretaceous, the next big question is: “what’s next?”

A simple and obvious question. A question that can make a person stand out on a sub-arctic shelf staring up into the constellations with the wondering eyes of ancients searching for answers.

While waiting for that passage of time to close on the pending cultural judgement of Cretaceous I’ve found myself in position to work on several projects. Projects that allow an artist to pursue the continual quest to grow and learn and refine one’s skills in storytelling all while awaiting the approach of what’s next in the future of Cretaceous.

Teaming with Western Horseman Magazine and rodeo personality, Dale Brisby, we’re collaborating on a new monthly comic-strip, “Super Puncher.” Based on the comedic skits of Brisby, “Super Puncher” is a G rated gag strip about his dealings in being “the world’s greatest cowboy.” So saddle up, ol’ son, and subscribe to Western Horseman if you want some rip roaring cowboy fun for the whole fam!

Over at Critical Entertainment, I’ve continued work with writer Chris Reda on the production of Chapter 2 of “The First Americans.” The second issue in the the paleo-American adventure graphic novel. The story continues right where the first chapter left off, with Clovis and his pursuit of the migrating mammoth troupe. While Clovis ventures into a new world his people are, unbeknownst to him, tracking him. Led by a powerful young woman who shares in the same nomadic urge to explore the unknown.

While working on two massively diverse stories (both in art and writing) , I’ve found that I needed an intermediary project to put me in the right head-space creatively. With the constant change of hats there was a need for something completely metaphysical. Something where I could take an existential stab into the construct of human existence. This new project, Taiga, will be released digitally and then print, upon completion. It currently has passed the halfway point of production is looking at an estimated end point of early summer.

Dipping them toes into different pools. Thrusting of irons into ever burning coals…. And so on, and so forth. The head pounds with the maddening echos of stories, of work, that’s gotta get out, of tales that need telling. That need to escape and manifest their existence.

Gnar the escape pig.

Into the Wild

Cretaceous, the project that has spanned the better part of 8 years in production, the project that has been teased and previewed for much too long, has finally been released into the retail wild of North America and limited parts of the world. It would of only been an after hours abstract without the guidance and attention of the few individuals who had faith in its potential. And of course it would of never even made it to script without the steadfast voice of confidence from Mrs. Galusha, the undying force of my inspiration to whom the project is dedicated to.

Now comes the practice of patience as the market place of our cultural zeitgeist casts it’s ever binding judgement as to whether the project shall carry on in continuation or be a single serving story from the forests of my youthful fixations. Time will tell ( 6 months or so to put it modestly).

Available now in any of your usual literary marketplaces. If you’re feeling real generous head on over to Amazon and leave a review. I’ve been recently made aware of the importance for those reviews and 50 seems to be the golden standard for ensuring those analytics kick into hyper drive. So even if you’ve already purchased the book and want to help secure the possibility of an ever expanding future (meaning more volumes) shoot on over and give it a few words and a rating. Thank you again to everyone who’s supporting the book and hopefully this is only the beginning.

Idle hands are the devils workshop as they say, so back to the drawing table.

Gnar the Rex pig.
