“Vision Machine” comment/question thread

John Damaso, an English teacher at Brophy College Preparatory, has been teaching a unit about dystopia and had his students read my graphic novel “Vision Machine” (available for FREE in pdf and iPad app form).

This thread is for Mr. Damasco’s students (and anyone else!) who has questions for me about “Vision Machine.” Please feel free to post away!

All the best, and thanks for reading!

TUROK #1, ACTION COMICS #28 and CODE MONKEY SAVE WORLD #3 on sale today!

Hey, friends. It’s a big Wednesday for me — three of my books hit stores! Hope you’ll consider checking them out. And if you’re in NYC, please come see me tonight from 6 to 8 pm at JHU Comics!

TUROK DINOSAUR HUNTER #1 is the story of an exiled Native American persecuted by his own tribe whose world turns upside down with the arrival of dinosaurs. The book is illustrated by Mirko Colak with colors by Lauren Affe and letters by Marshall Dillon. Nate Cosby is our fearless leader and editor.

A few excerpts from reviews:

“…a world arrives fully realized on the page with endless potential.” — Den of Geek

“Thanks to it’s outstanding creative team, and a fresh approach, Turok: Dinosaur Hunter #1 is more than just a reboot, it’s a victory lap for everyone involved!” — Comics: The Gathering

“Pak gives a deeply emotional driven story that sets up the future of the series perfectly. I also loved the soft spoken nature he gave Turok, and the way that the English language was classed as the foreign language amused me.” — Unleash the Fanboy

Grab it from your local store, nab it on Comixology, or get it via mail order from Dynamite!

ACTION COMICS #28 continues the exploration of the world of Subterranea, where Superman and Lana Lang learn of an entirely new threat — and spend a little more time with each other.  Art by Aaron Kuder and colors by Wil Quintana.

The Comic Current calls the book “flawless” and All-Comic.com gives it five stars.

Grab it at your local store or nab it on Comixology.

Finally, CODE MONKEY SAVE WORLD #3 is now available at Comixology! Here’s the solicit: “Code Monkey joins Skullcrusher and the monsters of Villainy Affiliated, LLC in hopes of saving his office crush Matilde from the clutches of Laura the Robo Queen. But who ever said Matilde actually needs saving? Shocking revelations await you on Chiron Beta Prime!”

Art by Takeshi Miyazawa, colors by Jessica Kholinne, letters by Simon Bowland, and based on the songs of Jonathan Coulton.

TUROK #1 lettered preview pages!

At long last, Dynamite Comics has released lettered preview pages from TUROK DINOSAUR HUNTER #1, which goes on sale February 5 in comic shops everywhere! The book was written by yours truly with art by the great Mirko Colak, letters by Marshall Dillon, colors by Lauren Affe, and edited by Nate Cosby.

Check ’em out, and come see me on February 5 at JHU in NYC, February 6 at the Comic Book Shop in Wilmington, and February 7 at Fantom Comics in Washington, DC.

Also, here’s an advance review of TUROK #1 from Adam McGovern over at ComicCritique.com. An excerpt: “The ear for the shadings (both nurturing and harsh) of Native culture is attentive and three-dimensional, and the psychological climate layered and foreboding.”

Natalie Kim’s “Kimchi Power” animated short is hilarious

My friend Natalie Kim made a hilarious 30 second short film with animator Tyler Landis that made me laugh and laugh. It’s part of a series and I can’t wait for the next one. Check it out.

Last day to back Dean Trippe’s stunning “Something Terrible” on Kickstarter

Dean Trippe has created an incredibly moving piece of art with his short comic book story “Something Terrible,” an autobiographical work about childhood trauma and the power of superheroes. I broke down and cried while reading it the first time and HIGHLY recommend you back the project on Kickstarter today.

There are just six hours left in the campaign.

Get in on this and grab a hardcover while you can.
