Heroes & Bandits

Based off the Gothic Country music genre, this comic is about a Cavalier the Skull Cowboy and Shotgun Guitarist, Krissy the Saloon Cowgirl and Dynamite Singer, and Rahkhi the Native American Drummer. Together, they overcome hardships in show-biz, hoping that one day they can ride into the sunset in a blaze of glory.

Delays, and Fall Convention NEWS!

As some of you might know, I have been suffering from tendonitis since last December. The pain in my wrist flares up from time to time, and I am doing the best I can with treatments for my wrist. Not wanting to cause excessive strain, I have decided to take another small hiatus on updates with my Heroes&Bandits comic. . .

In the fall, 47ness and I will have a booth at Stan Lee's ComiKaze! We will be there the whole show: November 1-3, 2013 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
More info on that as time nears.

Thanks everyone for reading, and I appreciate your patience with me!

Heroes'n'Bandits Ch01 COMPLETED!

Hello all!

As you can see, the time warped NEW version of Chapter 1 is finished... I also posted it on DeviantArt for your reading/viewing pleasure.

ppssst! And if you already own the Heroes&Bandits GRAPHIC NOVEL then PSH this is old news! :P

I'll be working (slowly) on a new chapter... I could really use a couple of commissions so that I could worry less about bills and focus on what I'd like to work on: this comic! :')

Anywho, THANKS SO MUCH for reading, and I'll see ya'll in the funny pages!

New Year, New Beginnings

Hello everyone! Many updates have been made to the webcomic appearance. Also, I have updated the news section, for those of you who do not follow me on various other webpages. Apologies for keeping ya'll in the dark!

Yesterday my cast was removed. I see the doctor on Monday, and if I am still in pain, more than likely will need to be re-cast for 2 weeks. Also, I start my one week atalier residency at Self Help Graphics in East LA.

I mulled it over a couple days, and I think my New Year's Resolution is to finish as much as I can for Heroes&Bandits. I love these characters to bits, but I have other projects I'd like to move onto. I know the going has been very slow the past 2 years, and I wish to catch up so ya'll can enjoy what I have in store! :]

On that note, expect to see me and my partner, Alejandro (47ness) at Gaslight Gathering down in San Diego, on Mother's Day Weekend!

Until next time, stay tuned!!
