Always love a Gowanus Pete commission!
Had an awesome time at life drawing with Gowanus Pete and Ice Queen last night. Eventually we’ll have to get together with the whole Power Play crew!
I figured it’s a good time to remind you guy that POWER PLAY is still on sale, and will be until Thursday. If’ you’ve been enjoying my Deadpool stuff, or digital comics in general, here’s your chance to see how I got started doing this stuff, and each issue is just $0.99.

Buy it, read it, enjoy it— I’d love to hear what you guys think!
POWER PLAY is still on sale! Get the first four episodes for half price while you can!
If you’ve been enjoying my work on DEADPOOL: THE GAUNTLET, with Gerry Duggan and Brian Posehn, I bet you’ll like this series too, since it’s were I first started playing around with the digital storytelling techniques that I’ve been using in that series. Also it’s full of the humor and action that fans of Deadpool will likely enjoy.
So check it out! Half price! Can’t beat that!

And because I don’t have enough going on this week, check out Comixology’s front page— POWER PLAY sale!
Power Play’s a creator-owned story about a bunch of kids with superpowers playing sports. It’s the series Kurt Christenson and myself worked on where I starting playing around with and developing a lot of the digital story-telling techniques that I’ve been using in Deadpool: The Gauntlet.
If you haven’t checked it out yet, now’s the perfect time, because for the next few weeks each issue is only half price!
Enjoy it, and I’d love to hear what you think!
Here’s some more pics of me with Gowanus Pete from NYCC.

I was quoted here in this Bleeding Cool review of the Comixology Panel I was on at NYCC, where they announced their new “Guided View Native” branding that will highlight comics such as Power Play, which make special use of the tools available in digital comics to tell stories in a new way.
One thing the article writer says is this:
Alejandra Bodden (@alebodden11) writes from NYCC;
I have to say that I was a non-believer. I was adamant against trying digital anything (even having a kindle, which I had to get as an English Major), but even more so toward digital comics. What can I say? I am an old fashioned girl; I like the smell of paper and the feel of it on my hands and fingers as I pass the pages. Though after sitting through this panel I must say that my view has completely changed and now I want to save up for a tablet to experience this myself.
I’m glad that she notes her bias and change of heart here, because this is something I’ve been hearing A LOT over the past couple of years since Kurt and I launched Power Play.
Now Comixology is bringing more attention to their Guided View Native comics, such as Power Play and comics like it that use the same unique way of telling a story. Hopefully this will make these comic (such as The Eighth Seal or Motorcycle Samurai) easier to find, and give them the chance to change more minds in favor of digital comics.
Give them a look, I’m sure we’ll win you over as well!
