A few years ago I had the pleasure of writing and drawing RUN, a wordless, 21-page comic book story in issue 5 of David Lloyd's comic art magazine Aces Weekly (see original blog post here).
The story is still available in Aces Weekly, but I've decided to offer it as a pay-what-you-want PDF download on my Gumroad shop as well:
RUN will be available this Friday (June 7th) at the stroke of midnight, but you can pre-order it this very second if you feel so inclined. A seven-page preview episode is also available on Webtoon. Feel free to go take a look.
Thanks for your continued support and for stopping by. Hope you enjoy RUN!

A little over a month ago, the first issue of my daily online webcomic, PARANORMAL: THE OGRE, ended. Since then, I've been hard at work putting together French and English versions of the complete PARANORMAL trilogy via the online self-publishing website Blurb.
Today, I'm very happy and proud to announce that the 150-page, remastered, definitive edition of PARANORMAL is now available for purchase, in both paper and digital formats.
If you would like to order a paper copy of the book, there are two ways to go about it: you can order PARANORMAL directly from my BigCartel shop (each copy comes signed with a personalized sketch), or directly from Blurb.
If you prefer digital, you can purchase a copy from my Gumroad shop. I'm also working on making PARANORMAL available on ComiXology as well, and will let you know as soon as that happens.
In the meantime, to celebrate the launch of the trade paperback, I will be publishing a five-page preview of PARANORMAL: SHADOWS OF THE PAST, the second book in the trilogy, as a new episode at the end of my PARANORMAL: THE OGRE webcomic (on Tumblr & Webtoon). It launches today at 3:00 P.M (Pacific Standard Time) or at midnight (in France).
I appreciate your support and encouragement, and sincerely hope you enjoy PARANORMAL. Feel free to spread the word and let me know what you think!

I wasn't able to participate in the Inktober art challenge in 2017, but this year I was determined to throw my hat in. 31 days, 31 ink drawings, posted on social media with the hashtags #inktober and #inktober2018 is a lot tougher than one might think. I have to admit that I went through a couple of rough spots and had a case (or two) of cartoonist's block, but thanks to encouragement and kind words from friends and followers, I was able to finish a drawing a day up until the end.
Day One: Robin
Day Two: Maria, from Rick Remender & Wes Craig's DEADLY CLASS
Day Three: The Spider
Day Four: Magik
Day Five: Daredevil
Day Six: James O'Barr's THE CROW
Day Seven: Jean-David Morvan & Bengal's NAJA
Day Eight: Teacher, from Nagabe's THE GIRL FROM THE OTHER SIDE
Day Nine: B.P.R.D agent Ben Daimio, from Mike Mignola's HELLBOY
Day Ten: Black Kaiser, from Victor Santos's POLAR
Day Eleven: Shaggy & Scooby-Doo
Day Twelve: Ana, from OVERWATCH
Day Thirteen: Stick
Day Fourteen: Maya Lopez, aka Echo
Day Fifteen: Ikari
Day Sixteen: Manji, from Hiroaki Samura's BLADE OF THE IMMORTAL
Day Seventeen: Grifter
Day Eighteen: Marv, from Frank Miller's SIN CITY
Day Nineteen: Angelino & Vinz, from Run's M*F*K*Z
Day Twenty: Hellcat
Day Twenty-one: Ser Arthur Dayne, from GAME OF THRONES
Day Twenty-two: Tujiro XIV, from Matt Wagner's GRENDEL
Day Twenty-three: Paul Pope's ESCAPO
Day Twenty-four: Brian K. Vaughan & Marcos Martin's PRIVATE EYE
Day Twenty-five: Ramona Flowers, from Brian Lee O'Malley's SCOTT PILGRIM
Day Twenty-six: Bruce Lopez, the One Man Gang, from Mike Hawthorne's HYSTERIA
Day Twenty-seven: The Werewolf of London
Day Twenty-eight: Azrael
Day Twenty-nine: Archangel
Day Thirty: Vixen
Day Thirty-one: The Joker
Most of these drawings are available for purchase on my BigCartel shop. I plan on adding the remaining Inktober drawings in the weeks to come as well, so don't hesitate to swing by and take a look from time to time if you feel so inclined.
Ever since I recovered publishing rights to Paranormal back in 2016, I've been trying to decide what to do with it. I don't know whether I should pitch the trilogy to established publishers, self-publish it, launch a Kickstarter campaign...there are a lot of possibilities these days.
I'm still trying to figure it all out, but one thing is certain: I've missed drawing Ogre, Rat Face, and the rest of the Paranormal cast, telling their stories, and creating new ones with characters I introduced in the original trilogy.
I'm currently working on an espionage story that takes place in the Paranormal universe, as well as developing new stories, but while I work on them, I'd like to share the first volume of the trilogy with you.
PARANORMAL: THE OGRE will be launching tonight at midnight (4:00 pm Pacific Standard Time) as a daily webcomic on Tapas. The first episode will be five pages long, with one-page updates following every day at the same time.
I hope you enjoy it. Feel free to subscribe, bookmark the link, spread the word, and let me know what you think. Thanks for your support!

Just a quick reminder to letcha know that Archer Coe & the Way to Dusty Death, written by Jamie S. Rich and drawn by me, is now on sale in bookstores via Simon & Schuster, and tomorrow (Wednesday) will be available at comic shops worldwide via Diamond.
To locate a shop near you, try findacomicshop.com or
comicshoplocator.com. The book will also be available on the Oni Press Shopify and order links for major bookstores are all located on the Simon & Schuster page, using the keyword: Archer Coe V2.
Also, as anyone following me on Instagram has probably noticed, I'm hard at work on some new Paranormal-related projects. Feel free to head over there to check out some more sketches, but in the meantime, here are a few to give you an idea of what I've been up to since I finished Archer Coe vol.2 a couple of months ago.
Thank you for stopping by. Stay tuned for more updates!

This was the face I would make every time I'd look at a calendar and count the number of pages I still needed to finish in order to meet my deadline. I'm not kidding. I'm not sure how, but I managed to pencil and ink eighteen pages in a little over a month, then scan, clean, & tone those eighteen pages (as well as twenty more pages I'd scanned earlier), in exactly three weeks, which is an all-time record for me; one I have no intention of trying to beat anytime soon. If you enjoyed the first volume, Archer Coe & The Thousand Natural Shocks, I'm pretty sure you will like The Way To Dusty Death as well. It's an eerie ghost story that was immensely fun to draw, and Jamie's script was top-notch, as always.
Here is the page featuring the book in Previews ( Diamond order code FEB181691). Don't forget to ask your favorite comic shop to order you a copy if you feel so inclined.
Thank you for your patience. Even though it took me nearly four years to finish, I'm proud of what The Way To Dusty Death became, and I hope you'll find it was worth the wait.
Talk to you soon!
