On the shelves of your fine local comic emporium this week,¬†Artifacts #20, part two of the three-part, Heart Stone-centric “Phantoms of the Heart” storyline. It’s been an interesting task, building the character of Dr. Rachel Harrison from square one, into (hopefully) some the audience will care about. This issue portrays a fairly major turning point in Rachel’s life, and sets up a new status quo for her.

A hospital drama is certainly a change of pace for my artistic partner, Stjepan Sejic. I’m pretty sure he’d rather be painting dragons and armored warriors instead of hospital beds, but he rose to the challenge beautifully. You can see preview pages here:

One more note: I’ll be doing a signing at the Comic Depot in the Wilton Mall, Saratoga Springs, NY, this Saturday, Aug. 11, from 1-4 p.m. It’s the annual “Depot Day” celebration, with numerous guests and even a Batmobile appearance. For more information, contact Comic Depot:
