Roaches: A Graphic Novel

A satirical graphic novel available in Indianapolis area comic and book stores.

Video Game Concept Style



This art started out an artist reference map for the next book. Then, I decided to use it as a gate fold spread in the comic. The angle suggested that I could do a little more with it. So I ended up editing it together as a web-based game.

If it was a straight up game it would play like Call Of Heroes II. I liked that particular camera angle for exploration. If I had the talent I'd make a short real-time-strategy PvP with each player choosing a defensive or offensive faction in the forest.

Satire Gets An Upgrade In New Volume
Webcomic Veers Into Fantasy Direction

New production art from the new book promises more edgy adventures in the Insect Kingdom.

The story for the next book is a new direction for a series that began as a humble black-and-white webcomic. Instead of the gag/page-a-week format I've moved into a fantasy approach for the art and a more traditional approach to story. This arc turns the Roach kingdom upside down. It reveals intrigues and introduces fascinating new characters.

This book has been penciled. I'm in the process of cleaning it up and digitally inking now. Colors for the book seem to need more attention. The flat and slightly shaded style used in book one is now a thing of the past. The early results for book two look very good.


The Exuvian villagers have a very different culture from the roaches we've seen before.

New types of roaches and insects are coming up in the next book. I really wish I could say more! Subscribe to this site for upcoming announcements.
