A reliable source close to Tanpopo and Kuro has revealed the star-crossed couple had eloped this past weekend while Camilla attended Emerald City Comic Con. The newlyweds have disappeared, and cannot be reached for comment.

hey there! been pretty busy doing some new product design and illustration work, but I am taking a little break to tell you that I finally got some Sky Pirates graphic novels in! They are now available on the ONLINE STORE.
The graphic novel is a collection of all five issues of the mini-series PLUS issue #0, recolored by Simon Bork! Oh yeah!
The price $17.99 and we ship everywhere. Enjoy and stay tuned for Sky Pirates news later this year … >_^
Hello! I’m very proud and excited to announce that Sky Pirates of Neo Terra, the graphic novel will be out soon! This is the collected edition of the 5 issues of the story of Billy Boom Boom, the brash and bold glidewing pilot out to save Neo Terra from the clutches of the Pirate King (and the sinister Witch Queen behind it all). The story is fun, entertaining, full of action and comedy. It’s a great read for kids, teens and adults.
What are you waiting for?! Go to your local comic book store and pre-order so you can get your copy right away.
I won’t have any at New York Comic Con or at APE so pre-ordering is your only chance to pick up the book. This was one of my favorite projects to work on, and have to thank writer Josh Wagner, creator Sean Megaw and the colorists Simon Bork and Patipat Asavasena for their awesome teamwork.
As always, thanks for everyone’s support and enthusiasm for my work. I can’t wait to share my next comic project with the world!
I’m very proud today to announce that my mini-series, BURN, is being published as a graphic novel by Simon Pulse!
BURN was my first creator-owned story and series, and it was published by Arcana Comics. Now we’re moving up, into graphic novel territory and I hope that everyone who hasn’t had a chance to read it, or who doesn’t like single issues, will pick up the graphic novel.
I even designed a brand new cover for it! I don’t currently have any of these available for sale, but they will be widely available at bookstores, and on book buying sites like Amazon or directly from Simon Pulse.
Special thanks to Sean O’Reilly, Quenton Shaw, Michael del Rosario for all their work and help with getting BURN to this stage. We’re all looking forward to seeing how much more we can grow with BURN.
