Die Katze Act II
The cover to the sequel to Die Kätze Act I!!! Yes folks, it's only a few weeks away from its release...looks like sometime around Christmas? Maybe? We'll see. Be sure to log onto facebook.com/blindalleycomics or blindalleycomics.com for more details!

Louie, Kid Prodigy #1 Part II
The second part of the first half of the six-part miniseries...whew! Anyway, here we see two Sons of the Soil, menaced by the shadow of a Metal Muncher!

Louie, Kid Prodigy #1 Part I
Remember this? Well, the Facebook release flopped. Turns out the Interwebs aren't a free gold mine. So I chopped the first half of LKP1 into three parts, and subtitled it, "The Metal Munchers!" Then I printed it in small format...in full color! Not a huge seller, but at least I'm getting it out there.

Tales to Befuddle, Concept 2
Another pulp-inspired cover concept. I was kicking around a story idea about Cosmonauts using a black hole to get back to earth...and then Interstellar hit theaters. Darn you, Chris Nolan...!

"Tales to Befuddle" will be an anthology comic in the tradition of the old pulp magazines, as you can see from this cover. The goal isn't to emulate or satirize the old pulps, although I do love the covers; instead, the stories within will be dazzling examples of original art and storytelling. The main criterium is that they be "befuddling" - i.e., they throw the reader for a loop, or deal with a strange subject, or push the envelope of the comics medium. I haven't put out a general call for submissions yet, as we're very new at this whole submissions thing...we're keeping it on a friendly basis for now, only people we know; once we get established and gain confidence, we might throw the gates open. I'm very excited to get started - it's new territory for Blind Alley Comics, which has before now been just myself and Joe Haines, operating in obscurity.

Here's hoping "Tales" expands our horizons. Semper Befuddlis!

Tales to Befuddle, Concept 1
Blind Alley Comics has a super-secret project in the works...very hush-hush...anyway, in the tradition of Wikileaks (or Rickyleaks, in my case, haha) I'm just going to toss it out into the ether.

Yes, Ladies and Gentlefingers, the launch of Louie, Kid Prodigy #1 has occurred, landing like a twelve-ton iron-nickel meteorite on the Tunguska-like forest of the digisphere. KABLAM! Yes, it's got everything you've come to love and expect from a Blind Alley Comics title: intrigue, adventure, slapstick, and a wise-ass little kid going around messing everything up. And aliens! Don't forget the aliens.

That's a good idea. I forgot I even had this account. I guess I'll keep it up to preview various FoF and other comics paraphenalia; I was actually thinking of shutting it down. I'm trying to streamline my online presence - in other words, keep it to a bare minimum. Let me see what kind of art goodies I have, and I'll go ahead and throw them up here.
