I’ve spent most of this year working on pitches, so I haven’t released as many new comics as I’d like to. However, I’m happy to present to you my latest available work as a comics writer.
Marta Selusi and I co-created A Prayer to God, a short comic about a mortally-wounded barbarian who meets his maker, and she has serialized it on her Deviant Art account. Check it out here.
At long last, our book is finally available for sale on Gumroad! Buy Sail!
James Leask wrote up a lovely blurb for it in Comics Alliance’s Best Comic Books Ever (This Week) feature:
As a child, your home can seem suffocating and the world outside the front door can be enticing. After all, all you have to do is step outside. Sail withholds the specifics of why Carrie leaves home and takes to the sea and is the wiser for it, instead focusing its short length on what she sees on the ocean. Her encounter with Kahley the mermaid, beautifully illustrated by Jean Pe, changes her perspective about her own home, and sets up the thoughtful finale. Stack and Pe use the 10 pages of Sail with a skill and economy that knows exactly when to pause and take in a quiet or powerful moment. I look forward to seeing what they do next, but in the meantime, I’m glad to have Sail.
You can buy the comic that Sally and I did RIGHT NOW for $0.99 on Comixology:
People have said nice things! Take my word for it!
You can find Jean’s work here where I highly recommend you hire her because she did ALL the artwork you’re looking at.
We do not own any of these characters and are not seeking to profit off of this work. Our goal is to celebrate Aquaman during the year of the character’s 75th anniversary. All characters are owned by DC Comics. Aquaman was created by Paul Norris and The Demon was created by Jack Kirby.

We hope you liked this!
And you might expect to see this reposted here in the future with new letters from someone I have wanted to work with professionally for a long time.
I wrote about DC Comics’ covers for their Rebirth specials and how they struggle with communicating the stated intent of the relaunch. The actual writing of the piece wasn’t especially labored but I put a lot of forethought into it as well as time collecting all the artwork with proper credits.
Give it a read over at Loser City, if you would.
