Dawn’s Early Light, and More

Posted on

So, I haven’t written a ton of comics lately, but that’s changing fast. The first thing to launch is a short World War II story called “Dawn’s Early Light,” featuring the superheroes Magni and Warhawk, in a tale partly inspired by my father’s experiences in WWII Europe. Magni and Warhawk are characters from Pilot Studios, […]

But […]

Here in our household, we’ve all had Covid, with varying degrees of severity, but we’re all still here, thankfully. But like many […]

Spider-Man: Requiem large

Spidey and Me

Posted on

Several years ago, I had the distinct pleasure of writing a novel about one of my all-time favorite superheroes, Marvel Comics’ Spider-Man. The novel–a blend of super-hero action and horror–was Spider-Man: Requiem, and it boasted a terrific cover painting by my pal J.H. Williams III. Last year, the novel was adapted into an audiobook, narrated […]
