As much as I dig Greg Rucka‘s exceptional work in comics and novels, lately I’ve been reading and re-reading his posts about the process of writing (or, as he puts, it “Greg blathers on about Writing”). Sure, you should check out Greg and Rick Burchett’s steampunk/pirate/western mash-up webcomic Lady Sabre to see a master storyteller [...]
In my questing to find ways to promote Protege, a few months back I came across a cool site called Inkoutbreak. Let’s be real — there’s millions of comics out there by pros and non-pros, and sometimes it’s as hard to find good content as it is for creators to get their work noticed. According [...]
Get some PROTEGE wallpapers for your desktop, laptop, iPad or iPhone! They’re available for a one buck suggested donation, but no one has been turned away for lack of funds (as long as they take a blood oath to talk up the comic).

I gave this weighty matter a lot of thought after many tweaks and re-designs of the sound effect on pg 9 — which I ultimately decided to go without. Yeah, it’s not the greatest BRAOOOM [...]
PROTEGE #1 and #2 are both available for your downloading pleasure in PDF, CBZ and CBR formats… and you can name-your-own price to get ‘em. I know the market value for digital books is still evolving (I’m selling PROTEGE at Graphicly for a buck/issue), and I like having having the freedom to leave it up [...]
I’ll be setting up shop at A.P.E. in San Francisco next weekend! I will have awesome-looking print issues of PROTEGE #1 and #2, stickers and postcards for sale, plus a special APE-exclusive comic as well. This will be my first time at A.P.E. and I’m looking forward to being a part of what I hear [...]
