Parallel Man #2 in stores today!

Parallel Man Logo

The second issue of my new science fiction adventure comic book series Parallel Man: Invasion America hits stores today!

The story of Parallel Man follows Commander Nick Morgan — an intelligence agent from an evil version of America in an alternate universe. His government, known as The Ascendancy, has attacked and enslaved eleven other Earths and has its sights set on our world as their next target for their empire. Nick’s counterpart on our Earth is Nicholas Morgan, just an average gamer and about as far from a trained military operative as you can get. He gets pulled into the action when The Ascendancy’s Major Mackenzie Cartwright comes looking for Tobias Morgan, Nick’s grandfather, who holds they key to a superweapon that could control the Ascendancy’s destiny.

You can order Parallel Man: Invasion America in digital form from Comixology.

Because FutureDude Entertainment is a new, small publisher, there is absolutely no guarantee that your local comics shop will stock it unless YOU ask them to. That’s right – you calling up or walking into your local comics shop and asking them to order a comic from a small publisher can significantly help make or break the distribution of the entire series. Parallel Man: Invasion America is no different! So, please, help get Parallel Man out there by pre-ordering it today!

Parallel Man: Invasion America #1 Preview

After nine months of working in relative silence on this project, my new science fiction adventure comic book series with FutureDude Entertainment is almost available! Finally I can share some of it with the world! Here’s a preview of Parallel Man: Invasion America #1 and some more information about the world and story.

The story of Parallel Man follows Commander Nick Morgan — an intelligence agent from an evil version of America in an alternate universe.

Nick spent his childhood secretly learning of the freedom in other Americas from his grandfather, Tobias Morgan, and struggles to fulfill the deadly goals of his leaders. Now, after stealing an advanced vehicle prototype and his A.I. companion Atlas, Nick seeks out the leaders of a former rebellion known as The Futurists (led by a parallel universe version of Dr. Carl Sagan) for their assistance in assembling a legendary weapon that could stop the Ascendancy forever.

Nick is pursued by Mackenzie Cartwright, daughter of the president and commander of the all-black Hellfighters Squad in the segregated Ascendancy military. Her motives are complex. She is loyal to the Ascendancy, but the culture of her home world is not friendly to her ambitions for power or her relationship with Captain Glenn Douglass, one of the soldiers under her command.

Parallel Man: Invasion America is exciting, the world is immense, the characters are interesting. Like any good science fiction, it touches on some what-ifs that I think will help promote interesting discussion. (For instance, the Ascendancy is a parallel universe in which the civil rights movements never happened.) Overall, the tone is pro-science, pro-scientist, anti-imperialist, and a fun adventure that explores power, resistance and the costs of freedom

Young Justice comics fans will be interested to know that not only is the art by me, but it is colored by Zac Atkinson, who was the colorist on the Young Justice comic books.

Either way, go ahead and bid on some art – all proceeds benefit St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital!

 

Artist Alley

When I’m not off signing at FutureDude or on the Artist Alley stage, you’ll be able to find me at Artist Alley table U18. Here’s a handy map:

I’ll have all my Young Justice & comics 11×17″ prints available at my Artist Alley table, including a new Artemis Crock and Wally West print aptly titled, “Spitfire”. Prints are $20/ea or 3 for $50, which is a significant discount from my Etsy store.

Earths Mightiest Heroes - Framed prev DOOM! - Framed color prev 32346_436201606417440_836745009_n
 

I’ll also have some smaller, black & white prints for $5, including a Young Justice and a Batman ’66 print. As far as comics, I’ll have some Young Justice: Invasion Trade Paperbacks for $15 and I may bring a box of The Batman Strikes! comics… we’ll see.

Signatures are ALWAYS free, so feel free to bring stuff for me to sign.

Classic Doctor Who fans may be interested in picking up my new-in-2014 print, “For the Fans”, based on Peter Davidson’s fantastic 50th Anniversary special, “The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot“. This will be the first comic convention I’ll have it at! And of course I’ll have all my other Doctor Who prints, too.

I should also mention that, per usual, I will also have some healthy snacks available free for fans at my Artist Alley table. They are granola & fruit bars. They are completely safe and definitely are not made by Lexcorp. But I know conventions can get expensive and it can be hard to eat healthy at the food court, so if you need an energy boost, just stop by and ask me.

 

Sketches

I will be doing custom sketches at:

$80 for the first character + $60 for each additional character in the same sketch

However, my sketch list fills up FAST at conventions, so the earlier you bring me your request, the better.

 

FREE Mini-Prints!

I debuted my very popular “Disco Nightwing” free mini-print at C2E2 2013, so it seemed fitting to debut a NEW free mini-print at C2E2 2014! Presenting “Fastest Man Alive”! Visit me at C2E2 or any other convention in 2014 to get your own free signed copy!

Fastest Man Alive FREE MINI PRINT v2

 

Don’t worry – I’ll still have Disco Nightwing mini-prints and Christopher Jones Art buttons available free at least through the rest of 2014!

Young Justice Meet-Up

Greg Weisman and I have been organizing a little guerrilla programming in the form of Young Justice Meet-Ups at as many conventions as we can – we know the Young Justice fandom is still alive and kicking! So… want to meet other Chicago area Young Justice fans? Take some cosplay photos? Just hang out for a while with me and talk Young Justice?  Come to the hall across from the Speed Dating room on Saturday at 7:15pm! See you there! SYMBIOSI!
