Once upon a time, after ten years of trying, an exiled boxer punches his way out of prison. Walking across America, he trains a grassroots army of pirate champions, irritable sea dwarves and talking, boxing polar bears to dethrone an unjust king and the evil councilor who’d exiled him years before.
What happens to a man whose life and purpose leave him behind, and how might he create new purpose in an ever-changing land in order to win back his family and punish the unjust? KINGS AND CANVAS—a tale of dynasties, boxing, family and revenge—explores a new world where honor is gained with fists and wits, and one exiled boxer must prepare himself for a war in which he will raise his arms in triumph…or taste canvas in defeat.
Coming soon from Neil Kleid, Dan Glasl & Monkeybrain Comics

Recent Kickstarter awards that landed in my mailbox … Nothing is Forgotten by Ryan Andrews, Head Lopper 2 by Andrew MacLean and The Rattler by Jason McNamara and Greg Hinkle. These are all people whose work I’ve bought before — and enjoyed — thus backing their projects was an easy choice.
The Rocketeer prose anthology cover by J. Bone. This long-gestating project is finally off to press this week, in stores at the start of September.
Ok, last teaser, I swear.
