I recently finished an 11 page story about the esteemed Japanese manga artist, Yoshiharu Tsuge, called "Wanted," for the upcoming GARO tribute issue of SECRET PRISON. You can read more about the story in my previous post.

The issue will premiere at SPX 2012, September 15th and 16th. It is published by Box Brown's RETROFIT Comics and will be on sale at his table (H14).

You can take a look at  page1, page 2 and paqe 3. Please note that the story reads right to left as does manga in the original Japanese.

Take a good long look . . .

Tsuge-001

I'm currently finishing up a long story about the esteemed Japanese manga artist, Yoshiharu Tsuge, for the upcoming GARO tribute issue of SECRET PRISON. The story is based on how a young, down-on-his-luck, Tsuge came to draw manga at GARO in 1965, where he became one of the most celebrated alternative manga artists. The above is the splash page. See it larger here.

You can preorder a copy of this fine comic with an impressive roster of artists at Kickstarter. SP7 is completely funded. Money raised over the target amount will go to the artists. SECRET PRISON 7 is edited by Ian Harker and is being published by Box Brown's RETROFIT COMICS. The issue will premiere at SPX 2012, September 15th and 16th.

I was the featured artist and co-creative director for the latest issue of Ian Harker's SECRET PRISON comic tabloid. I did the cover, contributed a two page center-spread comic "Blood Oranges" and co-edited the contents for the issue with Ian. You can read all about SECRET PRISON #4 here and here.

SECRET PRISON #4 will debut this Saturday at MoCCA 2011 in NYC and then will be available locally in Philadelphia at select venues. SECRET PRISON is free.
