Which Category best describes you?
Area(s) of Interest or Expertise:
I am an experienced freelence and full time writer of comics, video games, VR short films, and more. I adore classic superhero comics of the four color variety. I also enjoy the occasional distraction Vertigo style comics, in particular Bill Willingham's Fables and Hellblazer. Back in my younger days, I also enjoyed Kingdom Come, Watchmen, and so on, but have lost the fascination with the "Everyone hates Superheroes, including the Superheroes..." Trope.
I have written for and play/run a number of TTRPG's, mostly fantasy, sci-fi, pulp era, Superheroic (of course), horror. Currently, my writing career path has been writing for Mobile and AAA video games, specifically Comic book related IPs and brands like Marvel, DC, and The Walking Dead (both AMC and Comic). I also have been known to write comedy, which can range from high brow, satirical to crude lowbrow in variety. I was blessed to be able to work on a major motion picture release for MGM studios and have written for numerous games with comical elements.
I have been looking for artists, colorists, and even animators/digital artists interested in doing web/print comics. I am open to almost anything that isn't purely religious in nature.

Hi ya, I know you like Christian comics so I know you'll love The Word for WORD Bible Comic, (Unabridged, historically accurate graphic novel of the Bible with a high view of scripture. For ages 15+)
To complete the first book I need your help, as I am raising funds on Kickstarter. My passion is to get God's Word in full into the hands of young believer and unbelievers and comic lovers of all ages, in the hope they will come to really know God. Please check it out at the KS page, it's going well but I still need lots of backers so I hope as a CCAS member you'll please pledge to support this project...

Consider the words of C.S. Lewis:
"If there lurks in most modern minds the notion that to desire our own good and to earnestly hope for the enjoyment of it is a bad thing, I suggest that this notion has crept in from Kant and the Stoics and is no part of the Christian faith. Indeed, if we consider the unblushing promises of reward and the staggering nature of the rewards promised in the Gospels, it would seem that our Lord finds our desires, not too strong, but too weak. We are half-hearted creatures, fooling around with drink and sex and ambition when infinite joy is offered us, like an ignorant child who wants to go on making mud pies in a slum because he cannot imagine what is meant by the offer of a holiday at sea. We are far too easily pleased."
