DOGS-O-WAR are on the Loose!

Hot off the presses, DOGS-O-WAR: The Collected Book Three is ready for you to devour with gusto...and a side dish of raw meat! 96 pages of B&W interiors with a new color cover by series artist and co-creator Mark Masztal! This book collects Dogs-O-War originally published by Crusade Entertainment in 1996-1997 and it appears here how the creators originally wanted it, with fixed production errors and the finest quality standards. The series revisits the world of Shar-Pei and the Godhead and introduces new characters like the female doberman warrior Gypsy, the narcoleptic and minigun wielding koala, Clyde and the bio-machine terror of Dr. Dusk. It also re-introduces us to old characters like the former I.C.E. soldier Flint McHenry and transforming robot Big Man. Aided by inker extraordinaires, Nathan (Deadpool & Batman) Massengill, Ethan(Cyber-Frog & Green Lantern) Van Sciver, Eric (The Goon) Powell and Chuck Angell, Mark has gone all-out-crazy designing some of the most interesting characters in comics and proving that any animal can be anthropomorphic! Special for this collection are issue by issue insights by Mark about the making of the original series and never before seen pin-ups and character designs for proposed follow-up series! Contact Mark at and reserve your copy at the low cover price of $9.99 + $3 shipping and be prepared to be entertained!

I cannot believe this is the first post of 2013...then I look back and I see I didn't post anything in 2012! Well, I must admit that Facebook had stolen me away for awhile. Things have been happening though, all in a good sense. Tom Sniegoski and I are collecting our Dogs-O-War mini-series, originally published by Crusade Entertainment, into a beautiful soft cover collection featuring a new cover by me and a few never before seen pin-ups and character designs. The graphic novel should be delivered in time for FREE Comic Book Day this Saturday. For this event, I will be at Mike Murray's comic Shop in Agawam, MA along with local artist Christopher Peck and Scott Hanna. It should be a fun day as we sell our books, hand out freebies and sketch for the fans coming by. So along with collecting the Collection and digitally coloring the Freebie book, I've also been working with Christopher Peck on his War Dog book. Chris is an amazing talent and I'm proud to call him a friend. I've been designing his book along with lettering it and providing color to his covers. I've also done quite a bit of freelance work this past year, especially for a large insurance company. that's was a short deadline project, but it was a lot of fun and a lot of hours. I hope you like the new art and I will check back in and let you know how FCBD went! Cheers.
