Announcing 5 DAYS TO DIE!

This is a big deal for me. My first ever creator-owned comic book. I'm thrilled to have the immensely talented artist and story-teller Chee Yang Ong, who goes simply by Chee, as my partner in crime. He's doing full art chores all the way to color.

It's on sale in September--all five issues of it, actually. I'm posting the cover to issue #1 here just to show it off. It's by the amazing David Finch and colored by Comics Experience coloring instructor Chris Sotomayor. Four other super-star artists are contributing covers to the other four issues.

In the weeks to come, I'll be talking quite a bit about 5 DAYS TO DIE, but here on this blog, I'll keep it in the spirit of Comics Experience and talk about a lot of what I learned going through the whole process, development, finding Chee, working on a book that I'm not getting paid for up front, all of it.

Send your questions about any of how this all works to me on Twitter where I'm @comicexperience or simply by email to

In the meantime, I'm just going to look at this cover for a while longer...

So why the hell do the mothers feed their infants poison formula when they can just produce milk, for free, from their own bodies? The answer is that they do it because the manufacturer of the formula, Nestle, ran lots of ads telling them to. On one hand, that now looks like musically t shirt a ridiculous pipe dream, but in a lot of areas of our drake shirts life, we're already there.
