Miniature Jesus #1 (of 5)
Story, art and cover by: Ted McKeever

Devil on one shoulder – angel on the other. One tells you to do bad things, the other . . .  well, you get the idea. Bad news for a recovering alcoholic if the “good” one is MIA. Between a liquor-gulping demon and a mummified cat hell-bent on mucking up his fragile stability with esoteric trappings of Egyptian Gods, it’s all about to make our hero’s day hit the proverbial fan.

My LCS owner tells me McKeever books have a small but dedicated following and it might sell 1 or 2 copies outside of that. I can see why he has a loyal readership. He plays so many genres that you don’t necessarily know what each new story is going to deliver. But you can be guaranteed it’s different from the majority of books on shelves.

darkhorse-blackbeetle#3-coverWriter, Artist, Cover by: Francesco Francavilla

“The Woman on the Wall” concludes!
