You can take a look at that, and get Batman: The Ten Cent Adventure, and Batman Black & White: A Black and White World - by the red hot creative team of Neil Gaiman and Simon Bisley - all FREE at my FCBD Facebook Group here!

Cabra Cini: Voodoo Junkie Hitwoman


No longer willing to let her boyfriend/pimp treat her like dirt, Cabra Cini got lethal payback with the help of voodoo magik--and liked it. Voodoo became her new addiction and Cabra has cleaned up her act and forged a deadly new vocation…


While I've been making a noise about the in-the-works Geek-Girl mini-series and The Almighties, things have been quietly getting done behind the scenes on my Cabra Cini: Voodoo Junkie Hitwoman mini-series. The art is finished on all but one of the mini's stories, and the covers, coloring and lettering are also coming on. Look for News & Previews at the Cabra Cini Facebook Group...

And if you didn’t catch Cabra’s debut, 'Voodoo Trespass', you can get the new digital edition FREE at Drive-Thru Comics by clicking on this page:

Geek-Girl News

[UPDATED 7/20/14:]

When 'Little Miss Popular' Ruby Kaye lands a pair of super-tech glasses (invented by brainiac college geek Trevor Goldstein) in a game of Strip Poker, she's granted flight, super-strength, and - due to a flaw in the glasses' programming - super-klutziness! And this is just the beginning of the changes the glasses will wreak on Ruby...

Work on the Geek-Girl mini-series is continuing, artist Carlos Granda has almost finished penciling the second issue, and Chunlin Zhao has just come on board as the second colorist for the book! Here's a preview of he and Carlos' first two pages of colored artwork for issue #2 of the series!

Almighties Origins and Reloaded now at over 1,000 downloads!



"The Almighties are definitely one of the strangest superhero teams out there." capelesscrusader.org

As a huge fan of 'The World's Strangest Superheroes,' the Doom Patrol, this line brought a smile to my face, and I was also happy to learn today that the new Doom Patrol will be making their DC New 52 debut in tomorrow's Justice League #30 (with their chief Niles Caulder now apparently wheelchair-free and resembling a young Noel Edmonds); something I've been hanging out for since they teased it in Justice League #24. I really enjoyed writer Geoff Johns' previous take on the team in Teen Titans, and I'm looking forward to seeing what he brings to this new incarnation.

[UPDATED 5/21/14:] Well it turns out the panel below was it for the new DP in Justice League #30, so we're gonna have to wait a bit longer to see more of them. In the meantime, there's this.


Grant Morrison and Richard Case's out-there work on Doom Patrol, back in the day, remains one of my favorite comic runs ever, and is the biggest inspiration for my work; a particular influence on Cabra Cini: Voodoo Junkie Hitwoman, but also to be found in Geek-Girl and The Almighties.

Mike Gagnon and I are currently working on an Almighties mini-series and the “Johnson and Gagnon are having a lot of fun making this comic and it really shows” quote from Blog the Blummin’ Doors Off's review of The Almighties #1 is certainly still the case. I'm really enjoying working on the comedic adventures of former downtrodden housewife with anger issues, MS. F; mercenary with psychotic tendencies, Mason; cocky British punk/werewolf, Nite Fang; armored egomaniac Maxi-Tron; and kebab shop owner Stefanos; as well as their new teammate-to-be.

Still in its very early stages, I can't give much away about the mini, but you can find a little of it teased at The Almighties Facebook Group. In the meantime, we're also finishing putting things together for the team's next outing, The Almighties #0, which The Almighties Recharged Reloaded Reduxed previews; and I was pleased to hear that and Origins have passed the 1,000 downloads mark. If you haven't got your free digital copy yet, you can get it here. :)
