FABLES FOR JAPAN is a three-book series containing prose, sequential comic art, poetry and more created to raise money for the victim's of Japan's earthquake and tsunami one year ago.

I'm very proud to have contributed a story with the super-talented MARK WHEATLEY to the second volume of the series, which features a cover by another super-talented friend of mine, V For Vendetta artist DAVID LLOYD.

Books I and II are already available as PDF downloads. All the money goes to charity as there is no print cost and all the creators have donated their efforts.

You Can Help out The ToonSeum!

If you haven't already heard, the warehouse of The ToonSeum in Pittsburgh, PA was hit with damage from heavy rains and flooding.

Here's a link to the Scoop article about it.

If you're in a position to do something to help out, please do. It's a good organization really building toward becoming something great.


The art team supreme of ANTIQUES: THE COMIC STRIP and VAMPIRE, PA are the kick-off artists for The Akron Public School District's new program that introduces students to working artists! A big shout out to Brendon & Brian Fraim for the honor and to the Akron Public School District for having the good sense to get these hard working guys on board! The proverbial win-win!

Scoop has the full story on their Friday, March 23, 2012 appearance!
