Dracula the Unconquered: The Characters



This weekend, we’ve finally updated the Characters page for Dracula the Unconquered, with beautiful images from Steve and backstory from me on our three principal characters: Dracula, Thalia and Varney. So if you want to find out a little more about them with some information that may or may not be revealed in the comics themselves, head on over and check ’em out!

And speaking of the comics themselves, they’re still available as $1 digital downloads in CBZ or PDF, directly from the website. If you haven’t already, read the preview and check ’em out!

Action Age Comics Heads to Raleigh for the North Carolina Comic Con!



Well, technically we’re heading to Morrisville, but it’s close enough. Either way, Chad and I are guests this weekend at the North Carolina Comic Con! We’ll have a table all weekend, copies of a few of our comics, and if you want to bring a flash drive, I’ll even load Dracula the Unconquered #1 onto it for a dollar, live and in person. That’s digital, son!

Plus, we’ll be on a panel alongside Fred Van Lente and Brian Clevinger on Saturday at 1:00 to talk about writing comics. It’ll be a good time! So if you’re in the area, come on out and see us. I’m not sure where we’ll be as far as table placement, but I look like this:



If you see us, come over and say hi!

Dracula the Unconquered Is Here!



Dracula the Unconquered is here! As promised, the first issue of the new ongoing digital comic book series by me, Steve Downer and Josh Krach is now available for download for one thin American dollar!

The first issue sets the stage for the entire series, introducing my versions of Dracula and Varney as well as Thalia, Drac’s new teenage girl sidekick, plus the driving conflict of the series and a couple of key elements about the world in which they live. Hopefully, I’ve managed to do all that and tell an entertaining adventure story. You can find out more at the link above, including a six-page preview and links to plenty of interviews where I yammer on about what the comic is supposed to be all about, so head on over and check it out! Happy Halloween, everyone!

The First Six Pages of DRACULA THE UNCONQUERED #1!



Dracula the Unconquered #1 will be released on Monday for Halloween, and to get people as interested as I possibly can, we’ve put up the first six pages as a free preview! It’s the first 25% of the book, featuring story by me, art by Steve Downer and lettering by Josh Krach, and its got one of the best pages I’ve ever written. So, if you like it and you want to get 18 more pages of blood-drinking, monster-fighting, spell-casting action, come back on Monday to download the entire issue for one thin dollar!

If you enjoy it, please spread the word. If you don’t enjoy it, spread the word anyway. Ironic dollars spend just as well as honest ones!




I’ve really been trying to get the word out about Dracula the Unconquered (first issue drops on Halloween!), and today, the first two interviews about the comic have gone up! So if you’d like to find out more about it, here’s where to check ’em out:

The first hit at ThreatQuality.com, where I reveal that the biggest inspiration for Dracula the Unconquered was Carl Barks’ Uncle Scrooge.

The second is at the appropriately spooky Me and You and a Blog Named BOOOOOOOOOO, where I talk a little about Thalia and Drac‘s relationship to Solomon Stone.

Read ’em. Spread the word. Get ready for Dracula!




This is it, folks. The big announcement that I’ve been teasing over the past week: Dracula the Unconquered, an all-new digital ongoing series by me, Steve Downer and Josh Krach! Each issue is going to be a full-color 24-page story for $1, with Dracula and his assistant Thalia traveling all over the world in an all-ages adventure!

You already know me, I hope, and you’ll recognize Josh’s name as the letterer of Awesome Hospital and the writer of Troop Infinity. Steve and I have only worked together a little in the past, he did the colors on Woman of ACTION and the cover of The Hard Ones, and he’s also done coloring work for DC and Boom! Studios. We’ve been wanting to work together for a while, and now we have our chance.

For more information, check out DraculaTheUnconquered.com, and be there when the first full-length issue drops on Halloween!
