Impossible Jones

Old news at this point, but I’ll be coloring the 3rd volume of Impossible Jones for Karl Kesel and David Hahn. It’s originally coming out via Panic Button Press and Kickstarter, and will likely be available through Scout Comics afterword. Look for that next year, but in December there will be an Impossible Jones Christmas Special published by Scout that features a cover and a new 9-page story colored by me. Below is the variant cover for Vol.3 that I colored over the greatest living comic artist, Stuart Immonen.

Justice League V The Legion of Superheroes

I’m thrilled to announce that I’ll be coloring Justice League Versus The Legion of Superheroes from DC Comics. My comic book bestie and Illustrious Gentlemen co-host, Scott Godlewski, is drawing it, and Brian Bendis is writing. Not only is this my first work for DC, but I get to work with Scott and Brian. Bendis and Oeming’s Powers is what brought me back into comics after I had stopped buying and reading comics so I’m really happy Brian signed off on me coming aboard the book. Check out the cover to issue #1 below, and pick up the first issue in January.

My Patreon comic, Nikkō, is now Sunshine.

If you haven’t checked it out yet, I put up a .pdf preview of the first “issue” to give you an idea of what it’s about, which to be honest, is still a mystery. But I do hope that the preview might make you curious enough to become a Patron of mine, where you’d be able to follow along each week as I post new pages. This preview is the last of the book I’ll post outside of the Patreon until I publish it sometime in 2022. So check it out, and sign up to see more at


My new creator-owned comic has started up at my Patreon. It’s called Nikkō and it follows two lost souls on a road trip through the south while fighting off alien agents. It’s a sci-fi, neo-noir, festival of violence! Sign up to be a supporter of mine and you get 1-2 pages a week of new comics, a few creative process posts a month, a monthly virtual happy hour, and early access to new Illustrious Gentlemen episodes! All for less than a cup of coffee. Check it out at


As I work my way through a couple pitches, and finish up my long overdue Kickstarter, I wanted to post about a couple projects that you can check out via your favorite comic book shop. There are still two more issues of Family Tree coming out over the next few months from Image Comics. I’m very proud of this book and thrilled to be part of the team.

Midnight Western Theatre is a 5-issue series I colored over David Hahn that is being released through Scout Comics. It’s a fun goth-western that features outlaws and monsters.

I’m also putting more work into my Patreon. Patreon backers get early access to podcasts, monthly virtual hangouts, and much more. Check it out and you can support my work for as little as $1 a month!

2020 First Half Report

What a year it’s been! Despite some pandemic related work issues, I’m still plugging along on various projects. I’m continuing to color Family Tree at Image, where issues 1-6 are currently available. A new book I’m coloring over artist David Hahn should be announced soon and I’ve also recently colored several issues of Hero Code for Jamie Gampbell, that I would imagine will be available soon.

I’m still working on my self-published Ronin and The Shisa manga/comic as well as the documentary about returning home to Okinawa. I’m hoping for both to be finished at the end of September.

My podcast, The Illustrious Gentlemen is still plugging along over at and we try to release a new episode every week. I’ve also recorded a few episodes of a new podcast that I’ll start releasing very soon. Stay safe and be nice to one another.
