Hello.  My very talented friend John co-created his own (excellent) comic convention last year during  Thanksgiving weekend in Cleveland, Ohio-- Genghis Con.  I found out about it in November and wanted to attend, so I very, very quickly put together a short comic book for the convention.  Very quickly-- this is maybe a week or two's work.  It was a tremendous time, so I'm glad I did it.  The book, though...

Honestly: me personally, I don't think it turned out too good.  There weren't enough jokes for my liking; a couple jokes felt stale; and I didn't particularly like how I closed out the first Chapter, but couldn't think of anything better there in the time I had.  So I wasn't in a hurry to post it, and for a while, thought I wouldn't; would just let it go buried... but... I got to thinking about it today, and figured, you know, I'm pretty at peace with having sucked, so what's the harm...?  Sometimes things come out okay; sometimes they don't.  Oh, well. Learning experience.

So: if you're bored, here's something...

ITEM!
An interview about Abhay Khosla's Bram Stoker's Dracula is now online at The Morning News, as part of their excellent TMN Talks series. The TMN Talks with Andrew WK, Jonathan Ames, and Will Pearson are all terrific-- it's a great series of interviews, and I'm surprised/delighted to be a part of it. 

ITEM! Abhay Khosla's Bram Stoker's Dracula is still available here in its entirety. Here is Chapter One, Chapter Two, Chapter Three, Chapter Four, and Chapter Five. I tried to clean-up this site a little, and put the comics under "jumps." I think it looks cleaner.  Just click READ MORE under the covers in order to... read more.

ITEM! If everything goes according to plan (...big if!!), Twist Street Issue 3 will be on sale on November 28, 2009 exclusively at Genghis Con in beautiful Cleveland, Ohio. Issue 3 is a 32-page print comic made specifically for Genghis Con called "Elementary"-- made on very short notice, it's basically another series of clip-art driven dialogues and monologues, though with a different tone than the Dracula thing. Maybe/probably the contents will go online at some point, but not in 2009. I think I'm having 20-40-ish copies printed (if everything works out on the printing!) Here's the current draft of the cover:





ITEM! This was mentioned in the comment section before, but Twist Street Issue 1 ("Left Field") is available for download on Mediafire in case the Savefile link doesn't work.  Enjoy! (Warning: you probably won't enjoy).

Hello-- I have to post a day early.

I didn't really have anything special planned for the last episode, so I thought what I'd do to mark the last episode is upload the old Twist Street Screenplay to go along with the final episode. The Twist Street Screenplay was a 20-page screenplay I wrote for a gag, as a "bonus feature" to the first issue of Twist Street-- I thought it'd be funny if a comic came came with a completely unrelated, random screenplay.  It's never been online, so. Here that is-- it's years and years old, so I think I could do a better job with that now but: oh, well.

Also, I was initially thinking I'd do seven episodes, but changed my mind-- so I have two two bonus covers: here and here. Thanks to everybody being so nice about this. I wouldn't have been as nice. I would have been very mean. And with good reason. But I have standards.

As usual, we'll be crossposted here. Here is Chapter One, Chapter Two, Chapter Three, and Chapter Four.

Conclusion:
