Exclusive Tricon ’68 Variant

10576922_10153054113874875_6047415616497352170_nFor those of you who haven’t read the amazingly epic Image comic called ’68, go get it now. For those of you who know how great it is, check this out: Tricon is getting the first ever ’68 exclusive con cover, and it features the familiar faces (er, heads) of the convention co-founders (myself and Eric Watkins), friend Jordan Lowe, and one of my favorite characters in comics, the dude named Jungle Jim.

Have I mentioned how much I love this industry and the people in it?

Qiet Rocks WV

There is A LOT going on with comics right now, but there’s also a TON happening with Qiet.  [For those who might not know, outside of comics, I’m also the bassist for this excellent band that you should listen to and/or buy stuff from on iTunes or Amazon.]

Just Recently, our song “Get Found” was featured in The Charleston WV Convention & Visitor’s Bureau tourism video to help add some zest to their campaign. We think it works pretty well, but then again, we’re a bit biased.
