The editing of comic books is much different than the editing of a book or novel. Three major elements must work in conjunction with one another –art, script, and lettering. Comic book page real estate is at a premium, so the art & panel layout, placement, pacing, and flow are essential. Making all three elements come together seamlessly is no easy feat. Nowhere in the editing world is a holistic approach to the craft more important.
Below is a list of comic books, series, or projects I am currently editing, or have done editing work for in the past.
Escape From Jesus Island
In January of 2013, I joined the Escape From Jesus Island creative team as the book’s Editor. It was an important milestone in my lifelong goal of making comics. Since joining the EFJI crew, I’ve taken on the additional roles of Production Manager, Webmaster, and Lettering (as of issue #4 –coming soon!).
The Infernal Pact
In January of 2015, I teamed up with writer/artist Joseph Schmalke to Edit his indie grindhouse mini-series The Infernal Pact. I accepted Lettering duties for the project as well, as of The Infernal Pact #2.
Cthulhu Williams: Monster Hunter
In 2014, the EFJI crew teamed up with writer Tim Stiles to produce his outlandish (and fun as hell!) comic book Cthulhu Williams: Monster Hunter. The project evolved from a short story to a full-length book whose release date on ComiXology is expected the beginning of 2016. I was not only the editor for the book but also did Lettering revisions and the all the book’s interior design & layout as well.
About midway through 2015, I also became part of the Astropunk creative team as the book’s Letterer (eventually, taking on Production Manager/Editor duties as well). This hard-boiled, detective thriller is currently in production and tentatively scheduled for a Spring 2016 Kickstarter release. Stay tuned!
EFJI Mutant Babies Webcomic
Inspired by the successful indie, apocalyptical horror comic, Escape From Jesus Island, and combined with our desire to do something more light-hearted (but still twisted & all types of wrong), Mutant Babies is an homage to the cartoons we grew up on.
