N is for New! Snack Attack vol. 2 is now for sale!

If you were a kid growing up in the 90’s you had to face a Sophie’s Choice moment every Saturday morning– either stay in bed and sleep in or wake up early to watch cartoons. Thanks to Saturday Morning Snack Attack! you’ll never have to make that decision again (well, that and the invention of DVR.) After over a year in the making, the second volume of Snack Attack! is ready for your consuming pleasure, so grab a bowl of your favorite cereal and settle in for a sugar rush you won’t soon forget.

Saturday Morning Snack Attack! vol. 2 features four short stories written by yours truly and illustrated by some of the best artists I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. I’ll be giving each of the stories in the anthology an in depth look later this week, but at a glance here’s what you can expect from this next volume.

Of course, what would a comic book be without a cover and the cover for Saturday Morning Snack Attack! vol. 2 has an interesting story behind it.

The cover was created by Crystal Mielcarek of Smushbox.net, a local Michigan artist and a long-lost friend of mine. About a decade ago, Crystal was dating one of my friends and the two of us hit it off well thanks to a shared love of cute things and being weird. Well, as things go when you’re in your 20’s, we lost touch after she broke up with my friend but it seems fate would bring us together once more.

I was shopping for Christmas presents at the Rust Belt Market in Ferndale, purchasing handmade soaps for the ladies in my life and as I was paying for them this adorable painting of Sailor Moon caught my eye. The minute I was done with the soaps, I sidestepped directly over to the adjacent booth to meet the artist who painted my homegirl Usagi and wouldn’t you know it– it was Crystal!

So we not only got to reunite after all these years, we also had the chance to collaborate for this volume of Snack Attack! I knew I wanted to show Mr. Snacktime in a sort of school lunch theme and Crystal’s art was the perfect match for what I had in mind. One of Crystal’s signature series are paintings of food cuties so I knew I was in good hands.

Do yourself a favor and check out Crystal’s artwork. She’s shown me some of the comic projects that she has in the works and I’m certain they will blow your freaking mind. I can’t wait to collaborate with Crystal again, but I’m afraid I’m gonna have to wait in line behind a whole bunch of other people who got there first.

Of course, Crystal is just one of the awesome artists I got to work with this time around on Saturday Morning Snack Attack! and each one of them is going to be getting their moment in the spotlight, so stick around this week and learn more about all the talent that went into making this anthology come to life.

K is for Komics 2.0 – Now with a store and header sass!

2 Jun header sass

So you might have noticed a fresh coat of paint on the place– it was just one of those moments where you look at your blog and go “no, tear it all down.” The new style of K is for Komics is designed to represent my identity as a writer using text as a visual component.

header sass

An example of some of the “header sass” you might randomly encounter on the site.

There’s a new feature for you to play around with, I’m calling it “header sass.” Depending on your web browser, each time you visit a new page, a randomly selected sassy subtitle will appear under the K is for Komics header. There’s 20 in all, so come back often and see if you can catch them all.

But the best feature of all is the fact that the K is for Komics online store is finally open. So now you can buy my comic books and even buttons from the comfort of your own home. You might notice there’s even a new product up in the store– Saturday Morning Snack Attack! vol. 2 is now for sale.  I’ll be spilling the beans all about this new anthology tomorrow, so come back and find out!

Find me at Detroit Fanfare this weekend!

23 Oct
Detroit Fanfare

Don’t miss Detroit Fanfare, one of the best comic shows in town!

This weekend is the big-one for K-Mo. It’s Detroit Fanfare season! This is one of my favorite shows to go to because the second year of the show was the first convention I ever had a table at.  If you like comic conventions with a dedicated focus on comics and comic creators, then you don’t want to miss this one! And for only $20 for the weekend, it’s practically a steal.

I am proud to say that I attended the first-ever Detroit Fanfare convention, but as a con-goer, not a creator. There I got to meet Stan Lee for the first time and I got to sit in on a live discussion of Write or Wrong by the incomparable Dirk Manning.  That was a game-changing convention in the course of my career and the very next year I was set up at Detroit Fanfare with my trusty artist partner, Jesse Hughes selling our very first issue of Science Girl.

This is my third year at Fanfare and though I won’t be premiering any new books this year, I will have plenty of copies of Science Girl and Saturday Morning Snack Attack! on sale. Come by, say hi and participate in the coolest convention in town.

Doodles from Motor City Comic Con 2013

22 May

I’m a writer first and foremost, but I still love to draw and doodle. Being at a convention for an entire week, there is plenty of downtime and so the doodle bug gets to you after awhile. I thought it’d be fun to share all of my crazy convention doodles with you guys and gals.

These two look like they’re up to no good.

Why Full House’s Kimmy Gibbler Was NOT the Wacky Neighbor

Sometimes I do things that have absolutely nothing to do with comics, but are still kind of awesome. This is one of those times!
