This is one my favorite comix I’ve produced to date, starring JTR3 and me from our sci-fi rock band Americans UK, and co-starring The Ramones, Donna Summers, Debbie Harry, and featuring quite a few cameos. I needed to fill 8 pages in an anthology I was self-publishing at the time, and my long-time friend Sam Vaughan pitched a longer story to me that was the same page length, but had, like, 9 to 12 panels per page, and so I edited that down to a plot based upon the big beats of Sam’s longer story, and scripted from there, using Sam’s exact dialogue from his initial submission for some scenes, adding or combining with my own for others. Then I roped in artist John Mathias, who played bass in Americans UK at the time, and who illustrated the comic using this amazing, seedy-Archie-like style. My pal Ben did a great job lettering all that jibber jabber! A wonderful collaboration all around, we created this Americans UK gem. Please enjoy.
“Yo Gabba Gabardine” first appeared in print in Americans UK Rocktronic Mixtape 2, and online at the now defunct literary salon, Trip City.

Patient 7 is fast-paced, sci-fi horror. A sentient, inter-dimensional virus travels across the bubble universes to infect humans and grant them great powers at great costs.

Patient 7 is Doctor Who for perverts.
I’m working on a new sci-fi horror comic titled Patient 7 with artist Donal DeLay, and when he sent me this page, I had to show it off. More to come!
