Project #1: A. Guardian Volumes I & II

What it’s about: Set in a breathtakingly beautiful, brutal world, this epic dark fantasy graphic novel, co-created by writer Eastin DeVerna (Samurai Grandpa, Through the Shadow of Titans) and artist Kay Baird, the two volumes includes chapters 1-6, this character driven fantasy, highlighting five main players from across the kingdoms and their struggles for power, love, belonging, and survival in a fantastical, mysterious, and hard-hearted world.

When the Northern, Middle, and Southern kingdoms of the Great Sphere plunge into a three-pronged war once again, events are set in motion that will trigger the beginning of the end times, and Aylwawrd will soon find that the fate of the realm is a heavy weight to bear, indeed.

Project #2: The Horsemen: Birth of the Spark

What it’s about
: The groundbreaking series celebrates its 20th anniversary! In 1995, I moved to Chicago and received my MFA in Visual Communication from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. It was at SAIC when I understood that the creation of comic books were an exercise in graphic design with script, illustration, layout, color story, etc. all components of the overall product. My thesis project was going to be a book on the history of African American superheroes and linking them with the Orishas of the Yoruba faith as it were one of the religions that survived the Trans Atlantic Slave Trade through “hiding in plain sight,” as it were. This thesis project was the birth, and first appearance, of The Horsemen…

Project #3: Bi Visibility: A Bisexual Anthology “Still Bi”

What it’s about
: A 90-page graphic novel anthology all about bisexuality, with genres including romance, sci-fi, vampires, superheroes, and reality TV! After the smash hit that was Bi Visibility #1, we’re back with a double-sized follow-up! Bi Visibility: Still Bi is 90-page graphic novel that collects sixteen brand-new stories all about bisexuality! As a bisexual creator, this is one of the most important projects I’ve ever worked on and a subject near-and-dear to my heart. Growing up, I had very little bisexual representation. I knew the label existed, but I didn’t know what it looked like, how it felt, or that I could be bisexual. This was the driving force towards putting together this anthology. Representation matters!
