It’s that most glorious time of the year again. The leaves are changing, the pumpkins are out. The foam tombstones are scattered on the lawn. Truly the best. Recently a few covers for Howling Commandos of S.H.I.E.L.D were released. The cover to issue three, that will be out in December. Also released were two variant covers to issue one. A concept design sketch variant by myself as well as a glorious piece by Declan Shalvey, with colors by Jordie Bellaire. Both of these will be in local comic shops on October 28th.

I have a few comic conventions and signings left before years end. First up is the MCBA FALLCON. Saturday October 10th from 10AM-6PM. At the State Fairgrounds Education Building. I’ll have copies of all the latest books such as Batman’66, The Punisher, and Antman. I’ll be doing head sketches on colored paper that will include grey tones and white highlights for $40. With a one day show I will only be taking a limited number. First come first serve.

Then on October 28th, the release of Howling Commandos #1, I’ll be signing at The Source Comics and Games in Roseville, Mn. I’ll be there for several hours and word is we are going to make this a fun event with some contests and prizes. I’ll post more as the info comes. Also expect a nice batch of copies of Back to the Future #1 which comes out the week prior. I have a 14 page story in that issue.

Finally, Nicole and I are headed to London in November for the Showmasters Film and Comic Con in Brighton, England on November 7th-8th. I’ll be there both days with copies of all my books as well as taking head shot commissions just like Fallcon.  We are so excited to be heading over seas and checking out London and this show.

Green Bay Packer Legends

Last year during the football season I decided to have some fun and I started doing weekly sketches of players from my favorite sports team, the Green Bay Packers. I posted them on social media and they managed to gather a decent amount of attention. One of my favorite websites, CHEESEHEAD TV reached out to me and wanted to see if I had plans to do anything with the sketches. I had thought about doing a poster with all the sketches but was worried I wouldn’t get the attention of the Packer fan base on my own. We decided to partner up on the project and now I am pleased to announce that a limited edition poster called GREEN BAY PACKER LEGENDS is available over at the CHEESEHEADTV SHOP.

And to keep tabs on this years sketches, just follow the hashtag #GBLegends on Twitter, Instagram, and Tumblr.



City Pages Magazine reached out and asked me to illustrate two head shots for their regular weekly columns. The first one is of Mike Mullen, a local political journalist. And the second one is of Dan Savage, a international relationship and sex advice columnist. Both will appear weekly in their respective section of the magazine.

Straight Shoot

Recently my pal Aubrey Sitterson unveiled a fun new design I drew to support his cool podcast Straight Shoot. A really fun podcast devoted to pro wrestling. I loved the concept he approached me with and his ideas behind “Death to False Wrestling”. As a long time fan of the last real sport I was more than happy to contribute. You can buy shirts and stickers here. 11935033_453670158148838_5533657116478989146_n

Speaking of shirts. I have a new design over on the merch section of Chux Print. The guys really liked my design called MN Noir and wanted it in the shop. I’d always wanted to get it on a tee so I was happy it worked out. You can purchase them here.


Also, the new previews are out with comics coming in November. Here’s the cover to issue two of Howling Commandos coming out that month. Story by Frank Barbiere, line art by me with colors by Nick Filardi! Can’t wait for you all to see this series!


Comix and Tea Time

The 2015 City Pages Comix Issue came out this past week. I yet again had the pleasure of doing the cover to the annual issue. This year’s theme was Summer Camp, so we created a line up of characters that look like they stepped right out of a VHS copy of your favorite 80’s summer camp film. 2015comix_cover2


In other news, I am stoked to announce I will be a guest at the London Film and Comic Con in November. It’ll be my first con out of North America. Very excited to be heading overseas this fall. Here’s the info on the show. logo
