MY LATEST RELEASES
From the publisher's description:
A death rattle echoes down a shadowy alley…. Guns blaze like exploding suns in the dead of night…
And make no mistake about who’s responsible…. The Dame Did It!
Pro Se Productions presents a collection of new stories wrapped in the shadows of Noir and definitely Hard Boiled with a feminine touch. Authors Joel Jenkins, Christofer Nigro, Shannon Muir, and Percival Constantine deliver two-fisted, gun shooting hard core action in these blood-soaked pages, and each tale revolves around a woman. A heroine desperate to save the day, a villainess hungry to destroy, or someone trapped in the middle. All and
more will be found in The Dame Did It!
Includes my story, "Tragic Like a Torch Song".
Thanks to all those who joined Kevin Paul Shaw Broden and I as we spoke about our "Adventures in New Pulp" on Sunday, February 21st, 2016 at the LONG BEACH COMIC EXPO in the Danger Room, S1, from 1 to 2 PM. We talked about how we got from working in comics and animation to New Pulp, but really went more into defining what New Pulp is all about, and also its ties to the popular super and action heroes of today. Our small but very interested crowd really got involved in the conversation, and I'll take quality over quantity any day. Thanks again to the Long Beach Comic Expo for accepting our programming pitch!
