Werewolves

MBT_Promo_02

Like most people, I liked watching horror movies while I was growing up. Also like most people, I had one specific monster type that really freaked me out. I could handle vampires, ghosts, demons, genetic mutants, rampaging extra-terrestrials, and everything else you could through at me – with the exception of werewolves.

For some reason, werewolves scared me – badly! I don’t know what it was about them. But nothing got to me like a werewolf. What made it really bad was the fact that I wouldn’t be able to sleep until I saw the werewolf killed. That’s how most werewolf films end. So, terrified of the werewolf through I might have been, I’d have to sit through the entire movie to see the monster meet its demise at the end if I wanted to sleep.

Luckily, over time, I outgrew that fear of werewolves. Not that I’d want to meet one in full-change; especially at night! Now, I’m the guy writing the werewolves. Two of my books that are unavailable at the moment have used at least one werewolf in each. Plus, Desirée Lee  and I have the hit werewolf webcomic, “MoonWraith“, running. How did I go from being terrified to werewolves to writing about them? I’m still trying to figure that one out myself! I guess it’s some form of therapy. Do other writers end up taking things they were afraid of as children, and writing about them, too?

Major New Record

Traffic_Record_04_22_2016

Desirée Lee and I would like to thank each and every one of you who are reading our hit werewolf webcomic, “MoonWraith“. We hit a major new traffic record on it yesterday. We were blown away by the number of hits! Our thanks to you all for the continued amazing support of this project!

For those who aren’t familiar with “MoonWraith”, here’s what it’s all about:

“MoonWraith” is a mature-readers horror/action/adventure webcomic set in medieval Europe.

Werewolves, descendants of an original pack created centuries ago by a corrupt sorcerer, have overrun the land. The king ordered the construction of a fortress above an ancient silver mine where scholars and historians believe the talisman used by the sorcerer to create the werewolves is hidden away. This talisman is the MoonWraith.

The king’s men strive to find the MoonWraith in the hopes of using the very thing that created the werewolves to destroy them. The werewolves struggle to keep the MoonWraith from being found, suspecting that it is capable of eradicating their species in one fell swoop.

Comic Book Lettering

Comic_Balloon

In addition to my other writing work, I’m willing and able to take on comic book lettering duties for others, too. I use a software program called “Comic Life” for that. I use “Comic Life” for lettering on the hit werewolf horror webcomic “MoonWraith“, and the still on hiatus science fiction and fantasy comic book series “Confluence” – both of which are created, written, and in all other ways created by myself, and my very talented wife Desirée Lee.

Anyone interested in speaking with me regarding comic book lettering work, please reach me via the “Contact” page on my website. We’ll work out per-page rates, and other details.

“Nightwing: The Series”

A few weeks ago I posted on my Facebook fan page about the upcoming fan-made webseries based on the character Nightwing, published by DC Comics. I stated then that, as a writer, and as a comic book fan, I’d like to work on such a project someday. After watching this first episode, that still stands—even more firmly now. If a paying job on a project like this came my way, I’d jump on it!

The makers of this webseries released Episode #1 on Monday of this week. Ending credits included, this episode is just over 8-minutes-long. It blew me away, though! I’ve never seen a webseries look so professional, or well-done. I’m amazed at what they’ve put together for this. I’d like to see this series run for a while. Heck, I’d like to see this series picked up by the CW, and worked into their “Arrow” and “The Flash” continuity!

Episode #1 is titled “Deathstroke”. For anyone not familiar with him, Slade Wilson—a.k.a. Deathstroke—is an assassin/hit man. His introduction into this webseries is, typical of the character, violent. So, you might not want to allow children to watch this. If you’re an adult, though, please check out what they’ve accomplished with this first episode. While I’m not affiliated with these guys in any way, I’m a huge DC Comics fan. Batman is my main character. And these guys are doing such a great job that I can’t help myself; I needed to do this shout-out regarding “Nightwing: The Series” as a comic book fan, and as a writer.

Press Release

Here it is, everyone! The official press release for the 1st Annual Klamath Library ComicCon. Desiree and I hope to see you there!

South Suburban Library Hosts Klamath’s First Comic Con

Saturday, October 25th, 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
3625 Summers Lane, Klamath Falls, OR 97601

The South Suburban branch library will host the first Klamath Falls Comic Con on Saturday, October 25th from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. What is a Comic Con? For those who don’t know, a Comic Con is an event dedicated to creating awareness and appreciation for comics and related popular art forms. The South Suburban library Comic Con will showcase local businesses and talent; everything from videogames to web comics, and from computers to cartoons.

In addition to vendors, discussions and demonstrations, there will be costume and art contests, crafts, and photo booths. Attendees are encouraged to dress as their favorite comic book, anime, manga, sci-fi, movie, video game or series character. Costume contest prizes will be awarded in the following categories: Best Villain, Best Team/Couple, Kids (0-10) male/female, Youth (11-18) male/female, Adult (18+) male/female. Costumes will be judged at 4:00 p.m. with prizes awarded to the winners. Any extremely risqué, overly gory or costumes deemed inappropriate by our staff will be asked to leave or change. All costumes must adhere to event costume rules and weapons MUST be peace bonded before entering the building. A peace bonded weapon is one tied to its sheath, holster, or container with a functional binding. It prevents another from taking a costume weapon without permission, and is a traditional and visible sign to others that the bearer is a responsible person. Bonding material will be available at the prop check station.

This Free public event is for all ages and only requires pre-registration for competing in the art contest; no other registration is required. Anyone interested in competing in the art contest may submit artwork along with a registration form through October 11th at the checkout desk at the South Suburban branch. Art larger than 24 x 36 or explicit subjects will not be accepted. Entries will be judged on creativity, style, and drawing ability.

Scott Harper and his wife Desiree Lee will host a panel discussion at 11:30 a.m. Their topics will include plot, writing process, and illustration software. Scott is the author of more than 30 published short stories and several novels. There has been talk, from several fronts, about turning his fourth novel, “Predators or Prey?”, the first book in his Wendy Markland series, into a live-action project.

Harper graduated from Marysville High School in 1993 and began screenwriting in 2007, after the publication of several short stories and novels, and has worked on projects for James Tucker Productions and 11th Dimension Films. He is currently involved with several projects, covering literature, film and comic books. His wife, Desiree Lee, coauthors several of their comic books and writes her own fantasy and paranormal novels.

Chris Purcell is a video game animator, graphic designer, and special effects artist who has worked on the likes of the “Men in Black TV series”, and the video games “Zork: Grand Inquisitor”, and “The Simpsons”. He will be giving a demonstration and discussion at 1:00 p.m.

From 3:00 to 3:30 p.m. Don Pedro Colley, a Hollywood actor, will be speaking about filmmaking and his experience in the industry. Colley was born in Klamath Falls to Muriel and Pete Colley. Colley attended Klamath Union High School and was active in athletics, playing football, and especially enjoying track and field. He tried out for the 1960 Olympics in discus, placing 6th. Colley attended the University of Oregon, studying architecture, and became interested in acting by accident after joining some friends for a play rehearsal. He is probably best known for his roles as Gideon in the series “Daniel Boone”, as Ongaro in the film “Beneath the Planet of the Apes”, and as Sheriff Little in the TV series “Dukes of Hazard”.

Jim Snook, a local cartoonist, will be giving a demonstration at 3:30 p.m. Jim Snook has been an Outdoor Sports Cartoonist for the last 30+ years, marketing hunting, fishing, RV and golfing posters, books, calendars, and art prints worldwide. He is an avid photographer and oil painter as well, and when he’s not creating he’s usually outdoors soaking up inspiration. Snook was born in Concordia, Kansas. His folks made their living in agriculture, but out of desperation moved their family to Oregon in 1944. He attended and graduated from Hillsboro High School in 1954 and married his high school sweetheart, Loretta, in 1955. Jim spent four years in the U.S. Air Force and then attended Southern Oregon University to earn his Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degrees. He worked as a cartoonist for a short time, and then taught Art for eight years at Eagle Point High School. Jim and Loretta now live in Rocky Point.

There will be food items available for purchase at Mia’s and Pia’s Pizzeria & Brew House across the parking lot from the library.

For more information, please contact Holly at the South Suburban Library: 541-273-3679.
