96 degrees in the shade.

96 degrees in the shade.
The summer is here with a vengeance. I’m working on the Jax and the Hellhound black and white graphic novel and scripting the upcoming Jax color books. I want to get through the post work and hit the pool. My office is usually 10 degrees warmer in summer or colder in winter than the rest of the house. I’ll be promoting the graphic novel at the convention in San Diego in July. You can go to the DiD Publishing website to view the upcoming comic lineup.

My Father’s Day treat consisted of books and a movie. I was impressed with the third chapter of the Xmen franchise. The director could have used the Phoenix character a bit more for greater effect. My impression was that Storm would have a greater presence in the third film; I’m not sure if that was true perhaps Hallie Berry just does not have the physical presence to fill Ororo’s boots. My entire family loved it – that’s what matters.

I will have the artist profiles up in a few days – thanks for all the emails regarding the new look of the site.

Stay cool.

The fight continues

The fight continues…
Jax update.Hello, folks. I have been busy working on the upcoming Jax and the Hellhound full color comic book. I have also been hard at work on DID Publishing's website. I got an email from a fan who reminded me that it has been exactly 20 years ago that Jax hit the comic book world with his D.O.G.. The idea hit me like a solid right hook across the chin. I need to republish the original story  and allow a whole new generation to enjoy my favorite (male) redhead.Convention stuff.I had a great time at the Super Con in Oakland, California last month. There were celebreties and almost celebreties around to entertain the fans. I got to meet artists who are fighting the good fight. Sure, the usual mainsteam talent were there to wow us with their work but there were a lot of talented people who published their own work and put their money where their mouths are to push their vision. I was impressed by that. I plan to showcase a few indie artists and writers on the website in the artists profile section.

I want to make a special shout out to one-time on screen Tarzan and all around great TV  western and sci-fi actor Denny Scott Miller. I chatted with Denny and his lovely wife for a while about the movies, TV and celebrity status. Before leaving he gave me an autographed picture of him in his most enduring television role; that of the Gorton’s fisherman. I was honored.
He has a new book out "Didn't You Used To Be...What's His Name?"
He talks candidly about his TV and movie days and the actors he worked with along the way.  Check him out at

That’s it for now. I will be posting again next week when I upload two artist profiles on
Be good to yourselves.
