I'm writing today with GREAT news! The wait is over! The PRELAUNCH PAGE for THE JUMP #3 is LIVE! The book is coming to Kickstarter - coming in HOT - on March 6th! It would be a HUGE help if you would SIGN UP FOR LAUNCH NOTIFICATIONS now!
Issues 1 & 2 of THE JUMP - launched via Kickstarter last year - received RAVE reviews.
You will not BELIEVE what we have in store for you for Issue 3! This one is going to MELT YOUR FACE! So, please SIGN UP FOR LAUNCH NOTIFICATIONS and come make the JUMP with us ONE MORE TIME!
THE JUMP is a kick-you-in-the-teeth paranoid thriller comic set in the world of astral projection. It's a smart, high-concept sci-fi dance, full of meaty twists and turns. It is INCEPTION meets THE BOURNE IDENTITY, if it were dripping with macabre and directed by David Fincher.
It's brought to you by me - Rylend Grant - and artist Fabio Alves, colorist Edson Ferreira, & letterer HdE... the very same team that brought you the dark and decidedly wicked superhero noir BANJAX (published Action Lab: Danger Zone).
BANJAX was nominated for FOUR Mike Weirngo Comic Book Awards in 2020 (including BEST SERIES along-side BITTER ROOT and SOMETHING'S KILLING THE CHILDREN) and the critics raved:
“This is the most amazingly well done first issue of a series I have ever seen. Point blank. Period… You cannot read this and come out if the same way you went into it… So effin’ good.” (Steven Leitman, Reading with a Flight Ring)
“Banjax has all the action, violence, grit, and heart of a classic.” (David Pepose, Creator of Spencer & Locke)
“Quality, engrossing material embedded with a cinematic feel. Gifted storytelling and breathtaking artwork. Banjax will instantly have you screaming for more!” (Jason Bennett, PopCultHQ)
“Banjax hits incredibly hard. Intense, thought-provoking, wildly entertaining. It’s near perfect. For those looking for something unique, Issue #1 is a must-read.” (Charlie Chipman, The Brazen Bull)
“Riveting. Refreshing. Heart-breaking. Ultra-violent. Honestly, a bit unsettling. The artwork of Fábio Alves is everything a dark and gritty comic should embody. Edson Ferreira’s color work adds an extra punch to really emotional panels. Don’t miss out on this bloody good time! A+” (Andrew Huard, You Don’t Read Comics)
“Holy crap this is good. This book hits all the right notes. It’s marvelously done, such a compelling story. It’s the best comic I’ve read in a long time. Honestly? Bendis could take some notes here.” (ComicCast Podcast)
So, I promise you, you are in for a real treat here with THE JUMP #3. Sign up HERE to be notified when the campaign goes live!
Thanks! I hope all is well with you and yours.
MONSTER MATADOR - VOLUME 1

Quick plug here... I wanted to let you all know that the campaign for the deluxe collected edition of my absolutely favorite comic book - MONSTER MATADOR by Steven Prince - is LIVE here on Kickstarter for just eight more days.
MM is a howling good time... it follows a Matador, in post apocalyptic world, fighting to make life better for his young daughter.
It plays like Danny McBride and Jody Hill made a Santo movie and then gleefully peed on it. It's completely and utterly bonkers, so goddamn smart and funny. I honestly can't recommend it enough.
This is a deluxe 184 page collected edition that includes the popular Tango of the Matadors and Afripocalypse arcs PLUS an ALL NEW STORY that sees the Matador reuniting with his daughter and setting up the next phase of the epic AND a Study Guide by Dr. Theresa Rojas (Professor, Modesto Junior College).
Anyway, this was a first-minute back for me and I HIGHLY recommend you give it a try. You won't be sorry. If you need more reason to dive in, the art was done by Ringo-nominated BANJAX/THE JUMP artist Fabio Alves.

Be sure to check out ASSASSIN G, some more ass-kicking Wuxia fun from TV writer Jen Troy (Supergirl), He Tao, and all of my friends over at Immortal Studios!
The year is 1982. As the lead assassin for the powerful Vermilion Pavillion, Margot Gan’s sole mission in life is to eliminate the powerful families of the Seven Cultivations Alliance to avenge their betrayal of her mother, the formidable Shui Hongshao.
Trained by Hongshao, Margot is virtually unstoppable as the ghostlike ASSASSIN G. However, when Margot faces off against the Yueyang Family’s own star JP Yin, she finds a mutual admiration as they try to defeat the other.
Soon, torn between their loyalties to their families, the kindred spirits come together in a forbidden romance that complicates everything about what they thought they believed.
