Maybe I should've posted this in the Indie Comics section. Hope this is okay.

I've written this one-shot digital comic coming out July, 27th. Although... given how the service is with small publishers it might be August, 10th.

Regardless, it's coming out through Crown Taker Studios. It'll hit Google Play, iTunes/iBooks, Amazon (Kindle), digital library vendors (Overdrive, Ingram Micro, 3M), UK & other foreign digital retailers.

Comixology is a little picky with indie books, but we're still hoping to be there too.

I'll be back later to give info - you know like names and what's it about and the art and all that crap.   Grin

Until then I'll be one of those annoying creators who's all like, "It's big! BIG! Can't talk about it! Wish I could, BUT I CAN'T!!!!! SO HUGE!"

I will buy this.


And measure it against my favorite short story of yours; that one you did with Spider-man and Shocker and the inadvertent kiss.  Cool

I had all you stories on a computer of mine, but I lost all that memory...and I lost your stories too. Sad

I so enjoyed those writings, Tok.

Thanks so much for the support, guys. I'll try to post some pages in the coming days. Hope you'll enjoy it. It does mean a lot. Sincerely. 

I will buy this.

I cannot believe you remember any of that!!!!  Shocked

That's incredible! Thank you so much. I still have them on my old computer.

After doing 11 Spidey fan-fics I burnt out in the middle of doing a 12th one. Plus, I was writing my own things much more. Not to mention, I started submitting scripts to Marvel for that Spider-Man Unlimited book in the mid-2000s. It was that 2 story anthology. I probably wrote between 12 and 15 of those.

I wrote like 3 Shocker stories... none involved a Spidey lip-lock, but they weren't bad.  Grin

And thanks for buying that comic I did at that Chicago Wizard Con years ago too. It's still appreciated.

"Boy likes girl. Girl gets into trouble. Boy makes the bodies fall.
A love struck teenager becomes the hero no one asked for - especially the girl. In this stylish 80s noir/action/drama we see how a one-way obsession creates a world of bullet flying hurt."

Up top is the cover and below is the official synopsis.

It was written before the recent rash of shootings in the US and abroad. Not to mention there is a shootout scene in a nightclub.

The script was written over a full year ago and the art was finished late 2015. Way before the horrendous nightclub shooting in Orlando, FL.

I don't say any of this to be like, "Oh whoa is me, real-life tragedies will hurt my comic." I'm far from a victim here.

I just hope folks realize how long it takes to make a comic - either indie or even Big Two - and know I'm not trying to exploit anything.

Sorry, had to throw out that rant sometime.

Still not on Comixology, but you can get it through other platforms on this link.

Thanks, everyone.

I finished "Don't Save the Girl" last night.  Nice book Tok!  I really felt for the protagonist in the end. 

I initially thought...
Man - I thought he was an idiot for falling for that girl.  That's seriously messed up!  He really shouldn't have wasted his life trying to save THAT girl!

Anything else you working on?
