Travelers is a 24 hour comic based on a sketch of a group of animal figurines. I pondered how such dissimilar creatures might interact and eventually become friends, and the comic is the resulting story. Travelers is a limited edition of 50, and, like other comics I’ve produced, has a woodcut and letterpress cover, laser printed interior, and sewn pamphlet stitch binding.

Category: Fantasy and History

The year is 1940, the Blitz is raging, and Hitler’s forces are sweeping across Europe.

At the front of the invasion is the victorious Luftwaffe, and at the front of the Luftwaffe is Hans Vogel: fighter pilot, ace, and recipient of the prestigious Knight’s Cross of the Iron Cross medal. Young, painfully shy, and with the backbone of a jellyfish, Hans keeps his head down and does what he’s told – but something still feels… off.

One night on a routine raid, Hans experiences a freak radio malfunction, is separated from his unit, and is shot down and killed.

That’s where his problems start.

Hans finds himself carried out of his world by the Valkyrie Brynhildr, but instead of Valhalla, he’s brought to the mysterious Märchenwald, the world of the fairy-tales. Märchenwald has been transformed by the war Hans left behind and taken over by the malevolent and cruel Erlking, a monster who traps people within a sinister web of Stories. Stripped of everything he was and forced to confront the consequences of the evil he served, Hans finds himself faced with a choice: give in to the same evil a second time, or try and make things right.

Hans Vogel is Dead is an antifascist fairy tale with elements of historical fantasy about the power of narratives, the question of individual responsibility in a totalitarian regime, and the struggle to become a better person.

But when the dead ones are forgotten, their spirits are never seen again. Until one early morning on the Day of the Dead, the shroud between our worlds were opened long enough to let one forgotten spirit out…

“.…I love Vera Greentea’s writing, have so since I discovered her To Stop Dreaming of Goddesses and Recipes for the Dead books. …Her writing has a Neil Gaiman quality, storytelling infused with a playful whimsy overlying a deeper sadness that begs for a resolution…”

Category: Fantasy and LGBTQ+

When his younger siblings and parents begin to irritate him on vacation, Jordan tries to get some space. But instead of wandering around the museum, he finds himself dropped in a fantasy world of magic where he can finally have some fun and train to become a knight.

Except Prince Astel and Sir Griffith are about to uncover a sinister secret kept hidden by the queen that’ll thrust Jordan in the middle of a magical battle he never could have anticipated.

Join writer Kate Sheridan (Flash Gordon, Adventure Time: Fionna & Cake) and artist Gaia Cardinali (Disney Mulan’s Adventure Journal: The Palace of Secrets) on Jordan’s epic fantasy adventure that’ll test how much he really wants to get home.

“The queer romance offers a sweet, slow burn that relies on blushes, introspective conversations, and adorable moments. The artwork is attractive and atmospheric, with clean, uncluttered lines.”
– Kirkus Reviews

“Cardinali’s vibrant color palettes, bombastic depictions of magic, and clean crisp lines elevate Sheridan’s breezy summer debut.”
– Publisher’s Weekly

“The scene-stealing character in this book is the enormous monster they encounter, with its twisted horns, sharp teeth, many eyes, and a secret of its own. Cardinali’s artwork is captivating throughout the story, but especially when showing readers details like magical energy, spilled blood, and that drooling monster. VERDICT For fans of magical adventures with hints of LGBTQIA+ ­romance.”

Mad Cave Studios and Voices Of Children have teamed up to publish Lower Your Sights, a graphic novel anthology, to raise awareness and proceeds for children impacted by war.

Comic creators and pin-up artists worldwide all came together to tell stories that focus on the consequences of war, the peace/relief effort, and the resulting long-term ripple effect. These are tales about the human condition and how combat affects soldiers, family members, friends, students, doctors, politicians, and allies from afar.
