"No WWE talent becomes a legend on their own. Every man’s heart one day beats its final beat. His lungs breathe their final breath. And if what that man did in his life makes the blood pulse through the body of others and makes them believe deeper in something larger than life then his essence, his spirit, will be immortalized. By the story tellers, by the loyalty, by the memory of those who honor him and make the running the man did live forever. You, you, you, you, you, you are the legend makers of Ultimate Warrior. In the back I see many potential legends. Some of them with warrior spirits. And you will do the same for them. You will decide if they lived with the passion and intensity. So much so that you will tell your stories and you will make them legends, as well. I am Ultimate Warrior. You are the Ultimate Warrior fans. And the spirit of The Ultimate Warrior will run forever!"
—The Ultimate Warrior’s final promo on television, the day before he passed
In between issues of ROLLER GIRL right now, which means I get to post sketches and commissions again! For the record, I doubt Superman’s heat vision could stand a chance against Darkseid’s Omega Beam, but this was a really fun composition/idea. Email email@example.com for your own sketch/commission! #comics #commissions #sketch #superman #darkseid #dccomics
Here’s the new cover to ROLLER GIRL AND THE FLYING SIDE KICK, CHAPTER ONE!!
New cover AND a new compact “Manga-sized” format!!
CHAPTER ONE reprint and CHAPTER TWO will be available
Thank you again to everyone who bought a copy of the first chapter already. You guys make my life.
O MAN!!! ROLLER GIRL AND THE FLYING SIDE KICK #2 IS FINALLY COMING OUT!! I spent many sleepless nights trying to make this work with my insane schedule/personal life, and it absolutely has! I hope you enjoy it come April :)
And if you missed out on CHAPTER 1, do not worry! CHAPTER 1 is getting a reprint due to the high demand and all of you wonderful people who bought more copies than I could print. Thank you thank you thank you.
CHAPTER 2 and the CHAPTER 1 REPRINT are both going to be a more compact 5.5” x 7.75” size as opposed to the standard sized comic that the original CHAPTER 1 was printed in. It makes a lot more logistical AND artistic sense (it just looks better). I’m really excited about it and again, I hope you guys dig it.
ROLLER GIRL AND THE FLYING SIDE KICK, CHAPTER 2 of 6
Color covers w/ 24 black and white pages
After witnessing a martial arts demonstration from Master Lau, Deb seeks his help in ending her monotonous daily routine. Ai has crash-landed in Port Side City and also seeks help (of a more desperate variety) following his brother’s sacrifice against the Hartizzeans.

Part 2 of 3 comics about a few ways to deal with depression and anxiety. This one featuring the only person I’ve ever gotten “starstruck” by, Neil Gaiman. Here’s a link to the video of Neil’s famous “Make Good Art” speech.
I also badly paraphrase some translations of Marcel Proust’s writing in there. Namely, “When you put your emotions into words, they cease to hold power over you.”
And here’s a link to Part 1: Mind Your Body.
(I also have a couple “meeting Neil Gaiman” stories that I’m just remembering now that I have to include in Journal Comix! in the future. How could I forget!)
I don’t discuss it much, but battling depression is a huge part of my life, and I just hope to be able share what I’ve learned in hopes of it helping some of y’all out there during the gloomy months of winter. (Also my buddy albinwonderland just released this video, so I’m inspired.)
This is the first in a three page series, and the series is by NO means all-encompassing to ALL people, but it definitely helps me. Dealing with this sort of thing requires a lot of practice - just like anything else - and it’s super tough at first, but as Jake the Dog says, “Sucking at something is the first step to becoming sorta good at something.”
For those of you who don’t know, I’m also a martial arts instructor, so I make my living off of the credo of balancing mind and body. I’ve experienced the benefits of this stuff firsthand, and fully believe that it can help you in an important way. I believe it so much so that that’s the actual reason I became an instructor in the first place. Go out there and do stuff!
In honor of the new Powerpuff Girls special airing today in front of a new Steven Universe episode (about PRO WRESTLING, you guys!!!): The Powerpuff Girls & Crystal Gems!
Final colors before I eventually string them all together to form one long piece of them in the beach house section of the Gems Temple :)
(For those curious: PPG special tonight [MLK Day] at 7:30pm, new Steven at 8pm EST)
