Can we talk about underdogs for a minute? About people who shouldn't find themselves standing next to the professionals in their dream jobs? Because that's where I find myself. Suddenly– AWESOMELY– a comic book that I have written is being drawn by Richard P Clark a guy who's art is found in books from all the big houses. It's been edited by Adam P. Knave! He's won awards for that sorta thing! And I cannot fail to mention that I've got a great letterer on board as well, Frank Cvetkovic.
So, how did I get here?
I made great friends and I wrote a great story.
Issue 0 focuses mostly on Bulvis– a goblin who made and lost his fortune betting on his ability to manipulate an 11 year old Malcolm. That was twenty years ago and the loss has grown exponentially over the years. But now he has a new target, a young boy named Jake. A boy who wants something, desperately. And Bulvis isn't above lying to a child to get what he wants.
Jake is lost, shelved in a foster home that sees him as a cash crop. But he's made friends with a funny little guy in the mirror. Maybe the mirror guy can help him find his sister?
