I’m a writer of various and sundry material, but mostly I love writing comic books and graphic novels. I’ve written for publishers such as DC Comics, Image, Dark Horse, and IDW Publishing, but my latest work which is my most personal and ambitious is the Persia Blues trilogy of graphic novels, published through NBM. Please visit that sister site for a free preview of the book, reviews, print and digital purchasing options, and much more.

But while you’re here, kick your feet up, take a look around, and be sure to check out my blog for the latest news, previews, and behind-the-scenes fun.

I like the multiple exposures of Cyclops’ head, indicate a sense of sweeping motion in an otherwise static image. It’s one of those uniquely comic book techniques that we don’t see as often anymore, what with artists trying to imitate still from a movie and eschewing anything “comic book-y”.

As you can see from the credits page, this is by John Romita, Jr. and Dan Green. From The Uncanny X-Men #199, published by Marvel Comics, November 1985.
