Not sure what this does, but I'm a'gonna find out...


The one genre of comics that I've desperately wanted to play in for years was crime. Comics editor Heather Antos has given me and many other talented creators that opportunity, in her new crime anthology, "UNLAWFUL GOOD". I'm encouraging my friends and followers here on DA to contribute to the book's Kickstarter campaign, so all the fun, hard work and creative fusion of talents can see print and get in the hands of those who's minds it will blow like so many bank safes. Check it out here, and help make this comic a…

You're responsible for the Bodie Troll comics? My boyfriend and I loved those things and we're both in our late twenties. My boyfriend shares many different comic books with me, and while we both like a lot of darker toned comics--it's nice to find a funny, adorable comic to read for a change of pace once in a while.

Yes, I'm the creator of Bodie Troll, and thank you so much for your kind words! When I started off in comics, my work was pretty adult in it's humor, and very dark. When that comic ran its course, I wanted to do something...warmer...something funny and sweet and fun that would appeal to everybody. Judging from the wonderful messages like yours that I receive, I feel like I'm on the right track!

Just so you know, the first Bodie Troll trade paperback comes out in February, collecting the first four issues of Bodie Troll, as well as lots of cool special features. There will then be an all new Bodie story in Red 5's Free Comic Book Day issue in May. After that, I'll be working on an all new Bodie Troll mini series, which I'm really looking forward to!

Thanks again for writing--your letter made my day!

You're very welcome. At first I was sad that it appeared to be only a miniseries--but once I read on that last page what was to come in the future--more Bodie--I was very happy! Keep up the good work.
