After a seven year absence from comics, my undead duo has returned in "DEAD DUCK AND ZOMBIE CHICK: RISING FROM THE GRAVE!"--my new one shot comic published by Source Point Press! Featuring three previously unpublished stories, a brand new adventure created just for this comic, never-before-seen artwork, pin ups by some amazing cartoonists, and an interview conducted by "Norah" writer Kasey Pierce, this is a rare treat for mature fans of my work with immature senses of humor (i.e. not for kids)! And the best part is, you can order it NOW on Source Point Press' website!

YES! I can finally announce that I was hired by Marvel to do a cover for their new “Avengers StandOff” comic, and my cover features their new character, Gwenpool! Anyone out there who digs my work, please encourage your local comic book retailer to order the holy heck out of this one, in hopes there will be many more to come with me and Marvel! http://www.comicbookresources.com/article/marvel-to-kick-off-avengers-standoff-with-retailer-launch-party-gwenpool-party-variant-revealed
