I will be exhibiting at Supanova Sydney, Australia’s best known comics and pop culture show on June 26th-28th at the Melbourne Indie Scum table (booth c1).    I will have all kinds of cool stuff for sale: Blackglass Press comics, including KAGEMONO, some of JMarc’s 3RD BLADE minicomics, SIXSMITHS ashcans containing a chapter fop the GN that will not be published on the website.  I’ll also have a big pile of MCBLACK pages for all you eager motherfuckers to look at.  I’m sharing the space with the incorrigible Matt “Guzumo” Emery and the even-less-corrigible Brendan “Black Heart” Halyday.  If you’re in town come by and say hello! Look for me under the Blackglass...


 Ladies and gentlemen, it is my great pleasure to introduce my new webcomic/graphic novel project with my esteemed colleague, J. Marc Schmidt: THE SIXSMITHS is a comedy/drama about a family of ordinary Satanists who have fallen on hard times. Thursday of every week, 9am Australian Eastern Standard Time.   JMarc and I are about halfway through the accompanying graphic novel as I write this; stay tuned for more info!  Hail Satan! — JF FacebookTwitterTumblrEmail

Big plans for 2009: From Blackglass, another 2 KAGEMONO volumes–or perhaps one big one. UNGENRED, a trade collection of ‘literary’ stories (by which I mean the stories that don’t have monsters, gunfights and exploding vehicles) Finally, my graphic novel MCBLACK (which is exclusively about monsters, gunfights and exploding vehicles) THE SIXSMITHS, a graphic novel/webcomic with J. Marc Schmidt. DEUCE, a miniseries with Nic Hunter. I’ll also be aiming to finish up my novel FAERIE APOCALYPSE pretty soon, and I’m still looking for a home for BLOODY WATERS. — JF FacebookTwitterTumblrEmail
