Well, this was one heckuva day! I was excited that Chris Roberson & Allison Baker were announcing the Monkeybrain Comics titles to the press, so that I could start letting people know that my new comic book with co-writer Adam P. Knave, artist Nick Brokenshire, and letterer Rachel Deering was going to be a part of this awesome company. What I didn’t know, what none of us knew, was that the books would be released two days early today, too!
That’s right! AMELIA COLE AND THE UNKNOWN WORLD issue 1 is available now over at Comixology, along with the other awesome Monkeybrain comics! It’s $1.99 for 28 pages of story plus the snazzy cover shown above.
Click on these words you are reading for a 6 page preview of AMELIA COLE AND THE UNKNOWN WORLD issue 1. If you like what you see, and I hope you do, please buy this wacky comic book, and let me know what you think!
Yes, Thanksgiving is upon us. I am thankful for a great many things (great family, great friends, great ladyfriend, great comics and tv shows, cheese)… but for this post I’d like to single out the release of my new book of ninja poetry called DO YOU BELIEVE IN NINJAS from Creative Guy Publishing! It’s a collection of my ninja poems from over the years plus loads of new ones with delightful illustrations by Chris Moreno!
Product description: A collection of the finest poetry about Ninjas ever collected. Well, at least that we know of – the others are all very very secret. Ever wonder how the modern ninja copes with daily life? Well, you should. Possibly not in the way this poet would have you believe, but then again, who’s to say? Including not one, two, but SEVEN ninja haiku slams, this will be the book that quite possibly gets its author killed in the night…

No, it’s not as stupid as it sounds. It’s stupider. If this appeals to you, and why shouldn’t it, you should order a copy! Or request it at your favorite bookstore. Or both! It’d make the perfect stocking stuffer assuming it is delivered before Christmas, and, if not — the perfect way to ring in the new year!
TRES POWER MEN!
Three men with the power of TRES!
TRES POWER MEN!
Pusherman push you!
Smasher’s gonna smash!
The Puncher punch you in the face!
TRES POWER MEEEEN!!!
(Music rocks out with a spoken word montage of their mighty origins.)
Born out of gray cubicles,
three boys learned the power of action-packed violence
and became men…
TRES POWER MEN!
(super rockin’ guitar followed by power drums)
TRES POWER MEEEEEEN-UH!!!!
TRES POWER MEN created & illustrated by Doug / lyrics by D.J. / embodied on this Earth by Chad (Pusherman), D.J. (Smasher), and Doug (The Puncher)… Believe in your dreams. (Don’t even try to fight it).
Ninjas don’t jazzercise
…..to keep the thunder out of their thighs.
……….For that they kick tons of ass.
Ninjas don’t diet
…..as a way to stay fit.
……….Badass assassinations keep ’em thin.
Ninjas don’t sweat to the oldies
…..to be free of ass fat foldies.
……….Airborne flipping is better than Richard Simmons’ moves.
Ninjas don’t jazzercise.
…..or freaking diet
……….or sweat to no oldies.
…..Which is wonderful exercise.
