Star Trek Into Weirdness

The Transformed ManWith the new Star Trek movie on the horizon, I thought I would pull this one out of the archives. 

This William Shatner Oil Painting in one of a kind frame by artist Devon Devereaux. Perhaps you have heard the urban legend of William Shatner on a vision quest in the Mojave desert. They say a shadowy figure beckoned to him and he wandered for several hours without any food or water. He arrived at a plateau where he made contact with a tambourine shaped UFO. It is said that it sent him telepathic messages that he would become the liaison between mankind and a higher alien intelligence. So when he is singing “Mr. Tambourine Man” or “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds” what do you think he’s really singing about!?
Oil on board. Roughly 12″x 20″ in an organic frame by Devon Devereaux

Wow. 2013 is off to a great start. Today is Superbowl Sunday and I can’t even tell you who’s playing. Here is an update in the world of art, comics, and podcasting.

Triptych: If you look at the menubar of this page you will see there is a new button. Writer Adam Gallardo and I have launched a brand new web comic called Triptych (It has a lot of cusswords. Sorry mom).  Check out our website We are releasing a brand new page every Friday.

Kickstarter: We just finished our Kickstarter campaign and went way above our goal. If you missed out on preordering your Tales of Hot Rod Horror books, don’t fret. You can now buy them at my webstore: I love Kickstarter. This is a game changer in the way that people create, release and sell media. I plan on launching a new project in March. More on that later.
Cackling Imp Podcast: The podcast has been a lot of fun. We are dropping a new show every Monday. You can listen online or subscribe in iTunes, and listen to it on your phone or mobile device. Here is our lineup for the next 3 shows:

David Settlow (Kickstarter update)

David Settlow is an amazing illustrator in San Diego. This is David’s second story for Tales of Hot Rod Horror. The Brides of Hell (written by myself) is a love letter to 1960’s and 70’s drive in movies. I love old Hammer and Roger Corman flicks and wanted to do a hot rod race with the devil himself. David did a great job of using cinematic wide panels to flesh the story out. We are in the 11th hour of our Kickstarter campaign. I know its a long shot but if we can raise $869 before we are done, Tales of Hot Rod Horror 3 will immediately go into production. Please spread the love during our final push!

Whats next you ask:

  • The Cackling Imp Podcast is already in full effect: subscribe on iTunes. We are dropping a new show every Monday.
  • Conventions: We will be taking the Hot Rod Horror books to Wizard World Portland Feb 22-24, Emerald City Comic Con Mar1-3, Seattle Crypticon May 24-26, San Diego Comic-Con July 17-21, Rose City Comic Con Sept 21-22 *thanks Ron!, Comickaze November 1-3 and maybe a few more.

Thanks to all of you that supported, backed or shared this project. You have all changed the way I create comics. I cant say it enough! Thank you!!!

David Quinn

This Kickstarter update is all about my writing partner David Quinn.  I have worked with David professionally for a long time and have been a fan of his work even longer.  If you have never heard of David, he helped revolutionize adult themed comics and indy comics in the late 80s with his writing on Faust, illustrated by TIm Vigil.  David has a had a long and prolific career in writing comics including Dr. Strange, Ghost Rider, and Disney’s Gargoyles.  I can’t really separate my own works without talking about David.  He is the writer of Ballad of the Eyeball Dragster and Crying at the Haunted Carwash for Tales of Hot Rod Horror as well as the writer of The Littlest Bitch.  If you are sad that Faust has ended and you want to see more work from David Quinn, we are about $1154 from making our stretch goal of $5000. That means I can hire back all of our Hot Rod Horror creators back to do another book. Yay!

Black Olive (Lesley Reppeteaux)

I know what you’re thinking. Tales of Hot Rod Horror?  Sounds like a lot of testosterone to me.  Well yeah, but not exactly. My good friend Black Olive (Lesley Reppeteax) and her writing partner Tomie McKay have injected TOHRH2 with nice balance of horror with their own special touch.  Black Olive was my first guest on the Cackling Imp Podcast.  We talk about comics, fine art and her new line of hand crafted Tansy Dolls.  Black Olive is best known for her Slave Labor Graphics books: Outlook Grim andScrewtooth. You can find the limited edition Disney’s Haunted Mansion book that Lesley and I both created stories for online as well. This is one talented lady, so check out all her books, paintings, and dolls online!
