Roaches in it's second edition.
Comics. I made my first one when I was 12, My second one was published when I was 30. At the time that I made my second one, I hadn't read a regular type of comic since college. Instead, I had been busy pursuing a number of career goals.

Cement, the six-story walking nuclear reactor, is not the central character. Miette and her grandfather are the leads. Together they run a magic shop in a really dicey part of town. As they attempt to keep their shop open a series of robberies and murders occur in their neighborhood that the police are unable to stop.
This book is in the proposal stage. Derek Edwards has written the arc out and I would like to have my friend Frankie Washington draw the art. But this is not a quick project. I plan on spending as much time as possible refining the art to be as original and the story...
