Untamed and Niobe

  Hello Stranger, A couple of months ago, we released the last issue of the series NIOBE: She is Life by Amandla Stenberg, Ashley A. Woods, Darrell May and myself. (Don’t worry, details on NIOBE: She is Death will be announced soon). We also released THE UNTAMED: Killing Floor, the sequel to THE UNTAMED: A Sinner’s Prayer. We returned the original Untamed team of myself, Darrell, and Peter Bergting along with cover artist Hyoung Taek Nam, but we expanded the team by adding superstar Jae Lee. The Untamed tells Niobe’s story as a young girl before the Niobe series. Incidentally,...

Representation Matters

Representation matters. This is not a social media philosophy, a meme, a selfie with a sign, or a bullshit blog steeped in PC politeness - it is not woke – it is the truth. It is the lower octave, the bass and drum, kicking out the creator’s voice from deep within your gut, if you believe in such a thing. Sounds preachy, but recent times have left us smack in the middle of history. We are that crack in our own foundation. If we do not hold firm, it will be torn asunder. The creator and the creation. Let’s talk...

THE UNTAMED KICKSTARTER

This Untamed journey has been ticking along for ten years now – mirrors Stranger’s own purgatory waiting for the Devil to unleash his torment on those who murdered him and his family. Well, things are not quite that serious although at times it has felt that way. A lot of people have sacrificed their time and time from their loved ones for this book. People have tried to make it, steal it, and obliterate it. So, from the depths of my soul I thank you for helping make this 248 page beast of a book and savage reality. kickstarter made...

Hello Stranger #9 The Untamed

Hello Stranger, Once again we have returned to the gritty Town of Oasis following our hero, the Stranger, as he travels on his path of vengeance. It has been a while since the last issue was released. We all have our own road to travel from dark to light to greatness. So, as we share in the struggles of this antihero, we know it will be worth the salvation that comes with fighting the “good” fight, slaying demons and embracing salvation. In other words, it is worth the wait. Peter Bergting has delivered a masterpiece, and the writing’s pretty good...

Stranger Dweef, The amazing Gene Ha

Ahoy Dweefs!!! What is up moyng friends!? I hope you all are lucky enough to be loving this Southern California weather like I am. I feel like Mother Nature stuck her finger into the face of the Winter Warlock and said “suck it!” Anyways, the new year is upon us and now is the time to start cranking away on all things that must be completed by end of year. My brain, nice and cooked, is still actively processing yesterday’s workload. What was the workload, you ask? Why issue 5 boards on Win City, boards on issue 2 of ERATHUNE,...

Stranger Dweef 4, Before Watchmen

Hello, my fellow bearded Dweefs. I bring tidings of woe and elation. Last week, on Feburary 1, 2012, a date which will live in comic book infamy, the world was suddenly and deliberately attacked by Watchmen prequels. Now, I will not cast judgment as of yet, for Jae Lee is to draw the Ozymandias book and you all know how I love me some Jae Lee. But I cannot ignore the signs as all of the gods and fiends across infinite earths and alternate universes move towards us for the coming Ragnarok. Galactus has moved off the frontline of The...

Hello Stranger #7 The Untamed Is Reborn

Hello, Stranger. We made it to 2012, and we’re already coming up to the love month and the celebration of black history. This year, Stranger Comics is going to celebrate a glorious mix of both (in between Ruining Christmas snippets and a new fairy tale from our legendary Viking, Peter Bergting). And to that end, I want to kick off this sprightly blog with a gentleman’s nod to Mr. Bergting, who it must be said, is a remarkable talent as a writer, painter, and Swedish meatball master chef. He is also a dear friend who has once again picked up...

Hello Stranger #3 Stranger Kids Pinata Sneak Peek

Hello Stranger… It’s been a savage couple of weeks. Two dear friends, Britta and Lee, have taken flight on their next spirit journey, so I wanted to honor them this month by talking on the importance of family… and what it means to us. I know this isn’t your typical comic blog, but it fits with what Stranger is doing to build foundations. We are creating our STRANGER KIDS division, which will be up on the site very soon. Children’s stories and folk tales will be presented with heart and soul. The classic fables of yore had a way of...
