A New Year, New Comics, and a new way to read them!

Hey everyone! It’s been a while since I reached out, and since it’s a brand New Year and I just became “The Answer to Life, The Universe, and Everything,” (i.e. I just turned 42), I wanted to keep you all abreast of what’s happening with me and Cloudwrangler Comics. The most recent development is the addition of Been Bit and Gravity Matters to Comixology’s Submit program. This is an amazing platform for new and independent publishing available through the largest digital comics app in the world!  That means these comics will be available for purchase and download via the Comixology site […]

New Comics! Happy Halloween, and some big Thank You’s

It’s been a while, but I’m back, and I’ve got fun new things for you all. Coming tomorrow is Gravity Matters, a brand new comic story from me, featuring art by Sean Dillon with letters by Erica Schultz and editing by Kristopher White. Here’s the pitch:   Amy Pill is a genius and a slacker who’d rather surf than grind out her day job in 2439, building anti-gravity units for deep-space vehicles. But when her shoddy factory begins to implode around her, will her gritty genius be enough to save her? Gravity Matters is a thrill-a-minute adventure that packs the flashy […]

My 2015 Con Schedule!

It’s almost that time of year again for comics lovers: Convention Season! Honestly, I have no idea if anyone other than me calls it that, but there is certainly a run through the Spring and Summer that seems to see lots of the best cons, with Emerald City at the Jump off point, Comic Con International at the height of the season, and New York Comic Con kind of rounding things out in the fall. I went to a few good ones last year and this year, with both Been Bit and Major Holmes and Captain Watson in the world, I’ll […]

Behind the Scenes of Major Holmes and Captain Watson, Ch.1

I’ve just finished the second draft for Chapter 2 of Major Holmes and Captain Watson, and if you’re reading this, I hope you loved Chapter 1. I wanted to give readers some insight on some of the characters and events of this series, and while I can’t give too much away, I hope you enjoy this peek inside the process of writing this series.   I can tell you that the adventures of Sheffield Holmes, nephew to the famous detective, have been many, many years in the making. There are a few formative events in my life that made me love […]

Behind the scenes of Been Bit

With the release of Been Bit, my first digital comic short, I’ve been thinking again about process. Hopefully you all like the story, as Stan and I had a great time making it. How it all came together is a pretty interesting story in and of it self, and I wanted to share it with y’all. The horror genre isn’t one I ever thought I’d be especially drawn to, but if there’s a monster in the compendium I’ve been fascinated with over the years, it’s the werewolf. I’m a dog person at heart, what can I say? Vampires are fine, and […]

The Soundtrack for Hell’s Bells

I’ve been having a blast here at Emerald City Comic Con, meeting people and thinking more and more about my work. I went to a couple of panels on writing process and most were more inspiring than informative. I feel like my process works pretty well, but we always get better by learning from our peers, so it’s been valuable. Listening to Fraction and Rucka debate the value of notecards and hearing Kelly Sue Talk about her nova mind maps or whatever was trippy and made me mostly want ot go back to the hotel room and write. Which is the […]

I’m so glad you’re HERE!!!

Hello! Welcome to Cloudwrangler Comics. If you’re reading this, first know that I am super stoked that you are here! This endeavor means the world to me (heck, that WORD, Endeavor, means the world to me. It’s my favorite one,) and I know it’s something that I can’t do alone. Cloudwrangler Comics is, for now, my portfolio page as a writer, but with your help, it can be so much more. I’m nervous about this particular approach, putting so much of my work raw out in to the world like this, but I’m hopeful and excited about this approach. How did […]
