Final Bloody War of Colton Myers (2020, SPP)

Writer
with Christopher Smith & Brian Skiba
Illustrated by Lynsey Hutchinson

Pre-Order HERE!

After the horrors of the Civil War and a childhood steeped in violence and revenge, Colton Myers attempts to try and settle with what remains of his brother's family and do right by them, whatever God was left to Colt and the people that survived his violent past. When a roving band of depraved villains shatter that dream, Colton Myers has to strap the six-shooters back on and rescue his niece from a Japanese mystic trading in slaves. The only way to to do that, though, is to go through the worst human beings ever to gather in one spot in a gory free-for-all battle with only a single winner. This winner will need to be a human killing machine. Looks like there really is only one man for the job. 81-page, full color original graphic novel.

Cherub Illustrated (2020, Source Point Press)


Writer
Illustrated by Sean Seal

BUY IT HERE!

Just in time for Valentine's Day.

He wasn't like the other boys. Too rough. Even on the day he came out of Momma's belly. When Momma died, though, they sent him away to a terrible place. A doctor place... but the people there didn't act like doctors. They called him Cherub and they made him do awful things. Wet things. Hurty things. Until he met his angel, that is. She made it better and the pain went away. For awhile. Nothing lasts forever except a mother's love.

"David C. Hayes is back with Cherub. If you are familiar with his previous work, you know what you're in for. If not, then get ready for a ride through the absolute worst in human nature. Hayes has the unique ability to convey the most sickening acts in a way that will have you laughing between retches. Once the book closes, you'll need to shower and after that you'll wonder what it says about you that Hayes managed to touch so deep and dark. You will be affected." - CinemaHeadCheese.com.

So sit back, crack open the covers and settle in for a trio of strange and eerie stories.


Urbane Decay by Michael Cieslak (2018, SPP)

Editor

BUY IT HERE!

In this short story collection you will encounter things that go bump in the night. Things that shamble in the darkness. Things that are nigh... unmentionable. This is Michael Cieslak, though, so even if you've experienced terror before, it never had this kind of sophistication. Only the most refined and polished fear can be found here. It is, truly, an Urbane Decay.

The Profane (2019, SPP)

Editor

BUY IT HERE!

Vincenzo Bilof invites you to enter a world of nightmares. Faith has power. It is brandished like a weapon by priests, whose sole mission is to ensure that paradise touches each corner of the Earth. Paradise, however, is an abyss, and those priests serve the ultimate evil. To spread their unholy cause, angelic hosts are exorcised from innocent victims, though there is one young woman - Lana - who has been trained to bring the demonic institution crashing down once and for all. Hell, it turns out, is dark. And cold.

The Perverse. The Pious. The Profane.


The Runner by Eastin DeVerna (2019, SPP)

Editor

BUY IT HERE!

Saria had never seen the sun, never felt its warmth on her face. What she did feel was the sting of longing for her missing father. He had been sent as a runner to reach the Oracle and he never came home. Now, Saria has inherited her father’s duty. She must go out into the dangerous wastelands and succeed where he had failed… or else everyone she knows will die. From Eastin DeVerna, the creator of Samurai Grandpa comes... The Runner.

MurderCon by Maureen Orkwis (2019, SPP)

Editor

BUY IT HERE!

Cosplayers Bethany and Meredith have been going to comic conventions for years so they know what to expect when they go for a four-day event to Orlando. At least they thought they knew. Sgt. Vadam Nore had never heard of a comic book convention until he was called to the scene of a murder at one. With zealous fans running around in costume, and two particular girls getting in the way, this case might just be the weirdest and hardest of his career. The con scene is dangerous. Especially when it is a MurderCon!

House of the Goat by A.P. Sessler (2019, SPP)

Editor

BUY IT HERE!

They were only following their average male instincts (and girls) when they wound up in the dusty parking lot, but the four young men find themselves guests at the mythical Casa del Cabro.
When cult leader Anthony Aquarius makes an appearance, though, the boys are in for more than turndown service and wake-up calls.

Rituals.  Sacrifice.  Incarnation.
The hallmarks of Satanic Panic.
Master.  Dogma.  Followers.
The perfect recipe for a cult.
Sex.  Blood.  Magic.

Power comes in threes... as does terror, in the House of the Goat.

The Unjust (2010)

as Gray

BUY IT HERE!

They were once a close group of Special Forces operatives who worked together behind enemy lines in the Gulf War, Somalia, Bosnia and flash points across the globe. They were sent as the remedy to War Lords, thugs and others who threaten to break a fragile peace and stability. Their missions were justifiable, remove one to save thousands. Their military careers now over, the Operators find themselves with skills that no longer have any value. Their new civilian world is full of hypocrites, liars and cowards, they are foreigners in place were justice is purchased and the guilty go free. The Unjust are troubled men full of rage. They are angry at their country for using them, angry that they risked their lives and lost honorable men to protect a society full of weak, thankless parasites. Their anger is used by one man to consolidate his empire; this fury is then used against them to eliminate each other.

We aren't sure what any of that means, but that is the show synopsis. David was in two episodes.

Son of the Saw (2018)

SONNET 99
The forward violet thus did I chide:
Sweet thief, whence didst thou steal thy sweet that smells,
If not from my love’s breath? The purple pride
Which on thy soft cheek for complexion dwells
In my love’s veins thou hast too grossly dy’d.
The lily I condemned for thy hand,
And buds of marjoram had stol’n thy hair;
The roses fearfully on thorns did stand,
One blushing shame, another white despair;
A third, nor red nor white, had stol’n of both,
And to his robbery had annexed thy breath;
But, for his theft, in pride of all his growth
A vengeful canker eat him up to death.
More flowers I noted, yet I none could see,
But sweet, or colour it had stol’n from thee.
