Original comics

1. Steadfast in Peril – an 8-page original comic.

When searching for heroes, one seldom starts among the ranks of the mailmen.

19th-century widower Jago didn’t join those ranks with dreams of fame and glory. But when tragedy strikes during an ocean voyage, ship’s postmaster Jago seizes his shot at heroism with the verve of the greatest adventurer. With the waters rising and his life flashing before his eyes, Jago fights to prove that a struggle without hope is not always a struggle without meaning.

Based on a true story, Steadfast in Peril features a little-known tale of heroism in the face of an infamous tragedy.

Steadfast was included in 2012’s Journeymen #1.

2. Strength and Confidence – a 4-page original comic.
Six years of circling the drain on 16th Street, and server Joe has some advice for the cops: Wanna nix the crime rate? Shut down the party supplies store.

1. Off Duty – a 28-page The Authority fan comic.

THEY FOUGHT – for a finer world, against the twisted genius who made them super-men.
THEY WON – the quiet life they’d dreamed of, for years on the run.

APOLLO and the MIDNIGHTER, loose-cannon superheroes, are RETIRED. Five years fighting for their lives taught them the worth of a WARM BED and a ROOF OVERHEAD. But the city’s a dark and dirty place, with a rotten system and a rotten heart, where the line between AUTHORITY and ANARCHY is thinner than a meter-maid’s smile.
What could a hero ignore for the sake of a QUIET LIFE? And how do the big city’s baddest bastards pass the time when they’re … OFF DUTY?

2. Great Grandmother Russia – a 22-page Booster Gold fan comic.

What happens when a lost timetraveller, four Tsarist secret policemen, a girl scientist, a wisecracking Victorian athlete, and a small flying robot converge in an apartment in fin-de-siecle St Petersburg? Dust-ups, quips, and some unconventional lasso action are all on the cards, but so is the dawn of a heroic (if kinda nerdy) legacy.
