Hey Jumpers,

  Sorry again that it took me a minute to get you a proper update... I found out unexpectedly early this week that I was going to have to take a TV show into studio early next and so I had to push everything aside and go into heavy prep mode. Great news, obviously. Excellent oppurtunity, no doubt. But life if more than a little crazy right now.

The other good news is that the campaign is off to an excellent start! As I type this, we are a mere $673 away from funding. I assume we'll have that taken care of sometime this weekend and then it'll be onto the stretch goals. We have some really cool stuff planned for you as far as those are concerned... First, you'll get a dozen-plus extra comics as part of our bonus digital extravaganza the moment we fund... then you'll all receive this AMAZING Mike Mignola homage print Fabio put together (reveal to come) when we hit $10K... at $13K we'll have a new series of Rylend Grantverse trading cards for you... we started building this set out during the PEACEKEEPERS campaign... and I'm really excited to bring you more of them. If you missed out on the first series - the ABERRANT Lance Cordrey F*ckface card... the BANJAX Garbage Pail Kid... the PEACEKEEPERS Wanted Poster card - it can be had for JUST $3 in the add on section... and there's FREE SHIPPPING on these for all physcial backers!

The thing I'm most happy about right now is that backer count number... 141 of you in just a few days! We're on pace to absolutely shatter our numbers from our previous campaigns. I think this is a really great book and I'm so I'm downright giddy to have the opportunity here to get it into so many hands.

Tell a friend. Spread the word. There's a great comic party going down right here. So, SPREAD THE WORD.

P.S. There are some truly wonderful campaign here on Kickstarter. Here is some of the stuff I'm backing right now!


DREADLOCK THE BARBARIAN is a swashbuckling cyberpunk western one-shot from artist/writer/all-around-good-guy Don Walker. This one looks like tons of fun and I can't wait to read.


HAUNTING #1-3 - A Supernatural Horror Comic

HAUNTING follows your average, everyday teenage brat...who just so happens to RAISE THE DEAD!

Wherever Bram goes, ghosts appear - restless spirits that attack the living viciously and without prejudice. Bram's spent his entire life turning a blind eye to the destruction and death caused by his strange ability. He didn't ask for this curse, so (by his logic, at least) none of it is his fault. But his recklessness finally catches up to him in the form of Deacon, a mysterious and vengeful man from his past. When Deacon corners Bram and Faith, a small-town girl with a tragic past, in Dusty Springs, Bram will finally be forced to learn that his actions have consequences... Whether he takes responsibility for those consequences is another question entirely.



INTO THE WILDERNESS is equal parts hard-boiled detective mystery and classic western, set among the abandoned things in the New Jersey forest, where talking dogs and off-the-grid humans precariously coexist.

After a deadly explosion rocks the New Jersey forest, a talking dog named Caprica and her stoic human partner Schneider go on the hunt for a killer.

Schneider and Caprica are Advocates, charged with keeping the peace between humans and dogs. But Schneider's grief has set him on the warpath. Can Caprica pull him back before he crosses the line between justice and vengeance? Or will the violence consume him like it has so many others?


A sincere thank you!

Hello Jumpers new and old!

Things are a bit crazy for me at the moment as I've been banished to a writing bunker unexpectedly to prep a TV show to go to studio. I promise I will take a minute soon and write up a properly juicy State of the Union, but I wanted to hit the pause button here for a just moment to thank you very sincerely for the tremendous start to the comapaign. Our funding goal is firmly in sight and we will be enthusiastically onto some incredible stretch goals very soon.

As always, I am here for you - writing bunker be damned - if you have questions or concerns or just want to see something new and exciting added to the campaign.

Watch this space, cause I'll be brining the heat here before you know it.

Thanks so much again for all of the love! I can't wait to get this book in your hands!


If you're looking for a little campaign fix, I recently talked all things JUMP/Kickstarter (and Cobra Kai and Magnum PI) with the Bearded Comic Bro. Great conversation! Check it out HERE.
