I've been telling stories in comic books professionally now for 22 years-I started at Comico Comics in 1984, with friend and inking partner Rich Rankin on the Japanese cartoon based Robotech Masters-This eventually led to Rich and myself co-creating EAGLE, which we self-published for several years through Crystal Comics (our own label) until the b& w comics boom fizzled.
Among the many comics I've drawn: SUPERMAN ADVENTURES with the legendary Terry Austin; TARZAN THE WARRIOR with old friends Mark Wheatley and Marc Hempel; Douglas Adams' LIFE, THE UNIVERSE AND EVERYTHING; ADVENTURES OF THE MASK with that demi-god of inkers, Jay Geldhof; UNTOLD TALES OF SPIDER-MAN,with writers Kurt Busiek and Roger Stern (and Jay again on inks); JONNY DEMON with Kurt; CONGORILLA (yes, I said Congorilla) with Steve Englehart and Jay (you seeing a pattern here?);NINJAK with Kurt and lil bro,Mikey Oeming; JURASSIC PARK with Engleheart and old friend Rich; the TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES; PARLIAMENT OF JUSTICE with Mikey;THE BLACK FOREST 1 & 2 and THE WICKED WEST 1 & 2 with good friends Todd Livingston and Bob Tinnell-I've left quite a few out due to space and humility...well, ok, just space.
I have several more projects coming up,including a few more with Bobby T. First,a return to my favorite creator owned character,EAGLE-I'm very excited by that-then a very dark Horror story based on one of the many screenplays Bob has written,called THE VOICE and eventually a fun double feature comic with our Brit mate,Adrian Salmon called BARON FRANKENSTEIN/COUNT DRACULA-this will be our take on the British film company Hammer's films-it promises to be mucho fun.
After them ,Mike Oeming and I have a couple things we want to do,including a martial arts actioner and then Miles ZOMBEE Gunter and I will be doing...well...you'll see.
It has been an honor and a privilege and a pure, unbridled joy to be a storyteller/artist all these years. I hope that I've been able to share a little of that joy with all of you.
