Shamless Self Promotion August 25, 2009

Awhile ago, my friend Miguel and I decided to work on a comic project together. It would be a short piece, designed mostly as a demo to showcase our respective talents and provide us the much needed excuse we’d been looking for to work together on something. Miguel is a fantastic artist so having him draw it was obvious, and I’m okay when it comes to the words so the task of writing it fell to me.

After batting around several million ideas we settled on a short story idea I’d had in the back of my mind for awhile called “The Last Confession of Jacob Valentine”. It was a sort of genre-hopping piece of detective fiction, with film noir overtones, the waded generously into the pool of horror. It was a lot of fun and gave Miguel a chance to play with black and white, which he truly excels at.

The comic is now finished, and I may be a little biased, but I think it came out pretty smashing. Miguel just knocked the art out of the park.

And the best part? You can read the whole thing for free online. How’s that for a slice of fried gold?
