Coming soon... sort of.

My buddy Johnny Ortiz, publisher/creator of the Silver Comics Universe asked me if I'd like to write and illustrate an upcoming issue of Silver Comics featuring my character "Alex Armstrong" and his super-team "The Sudden Disaster Stoppers". He even took the time to put together a cover comp to present to me. How could I refuse?

So I emailed a synopsis to Mr. Silver and he gave me the green light.

Armstrong originally appeared in Silver Comics' issues 6 and 7, in a two part story. And soon Alex and the Stoppers will be coming your way courtesy of Johnny and the Silver Comics Group.

Thanks for the vote of confidence, Mr.O.!

There you are! You look very good Vince. Look forward to see some Armstrong, it must keep you busy I guess.

Aw, Max. How nice of you to say so. I can't wait to get started on this new comic book story. I haven't written AND drawn one in fourteen years. I've just been stockpiling ideas and concepts.

I hope I get to meet you and Oscar Grillo some day so we can have a few pints together in Merry old England. Thanks for stopping by, my friend. Love the three dimensional work you've been doing.
