The MSPaint Comic

2018 Convention Schedule Taking Shape

Is a convention near you looking for artists? Contact me!

We're continuing to add to the list of conventions The MSPaint Comic will be presented at in 2018. With Volume 2 and a comic about the Cold War well underway, the time has come to be more aggressive with building the fan base and readers.

It's also come to my attention that The MSPaint Comic: Volume I may be the largest printed collection of pixel art in world.

How's that for bragging rights!?

The MSPaint Coloring Book

Kind people, I am thinking about creating a coloring book inspired by The MSPaint Comic. Download the Coloring Book Sample and contact me to let me know what you think.

The book will be printed on normal letter size paper (8.5" x 11"), so as long as you have a printer, you just have to print the image full page.

It's an adult coloring book... as in a coloring book for adults... not a coloring book about adult things. I mean, there's going to be tons of blood and violence, but not the... naughty adult type of things.

Anway, feel free to give me a lot of constructive input. I've never made a coloring book in Microsoft Paint before.

The MSPaint Comic: Volume 2 is underway!

Great news, everyone! I'm about 1/3rd of the way through with the line art on Volume 2 assuming we're going to be at about 130 pages. If it goes much over 130 pages, the second volume will have to be released in two issues.

Don't freak out, that means less of a void between the conclusion of Volume 2 and the release of Volume 3!

In Memory of Johnny Sparks

Senior Airman Johnny SparksJohnny Sparks is a member of the Wizard Hunters in The MSPaint Comic, but in real life he was a fellow Intelligence Analyst stationed with me at Beale Air Force Base in northern California. We worked U-2 missions and correlated information gathered from various platforms into actionable intelligence, saving innocent lives, protecting our men and women on the ground from terrorist attacks, and finding the people who would commit murder to advance their twisted and violent ideologies.

When Sparks got out of the service, we knew he went back to family and friends back home, but he largely dropped off the radar because he wasn't on social media nobody had an e-mail address, mailing address, or phone number for him once he moved back.

Several months after it happened, we learned that our friend and brother had passed away on September 25, 2015. We hoped it was just bad information making its way back to us or some other Johnny Sparks, one who was older and lived a full life already. It wasn't. God called Sparks home after just 36 years.

Sparks was one of those gentle giant types. He was probably the only person I served with who was taller than me (just by a hair and I never admitted he was). He was also built a lot tougher than me. Every way I can think to describe Airman Sparks physically, it would sound like he was the type of person you're always terrified of running into in a dark alley... but if you did, you wouldn't be intimidated at all, despite his enormous presence. He was gentle, soft spoken, quiet, reserved, somebody who we always felt comfortable around and respected to no end by those who had the pleasure of serving with him.

If he wasn't an incredible guy, he wouldn't have made it into The MSPaint Comic. And while I had already planned on making Sparks the hero of a fight scene in Volume 2, this is going to be REALLY epic now. It's the least I can do to honor my brother's memory.
