BOO! Halloween Collaborative Comic

As you may or may not know, my goodest internets friend Manning Krull and I make it a habit to produce a Halloween Comic every other year, or so, by the name of BOO!:HALLOWEEN STORIES (The most recent iteration resides here in all its sepia-toned glory).

We are BIG fans of Halloween so it's always been our pleasure to collaborate on the spooky-themed anthology. We had big BIG plans to come back this year with an impressive volume of stories, but unfortunately we ended up not having the time to dedicate to it. Which sucks and is terrible, and was making us all sad. We looked like this: :-(

Along those lines, I recently wrapped up The Calamity! Project, a collaborative comic involving dozens of creators providing work based on a common theme. I'm exceedingly pleased with the final result, and I really think everyone involved did a bang-up job. In fact, so much so that I've been eager to start a second collaborative comic project.
