THE KIRBY MARTIN INQUEST #1



Fianlly, it's here! The Kirby Martin Inquest #1

For one long summer a city feared a man whose penchant for silent entry by cover of night earned him the tabloid handle of -- "The Black Ghost." He killed many, before he was finally brought to justice by a vigilante who presented himself as the man's opposite -- The White Ghost.
What began as an act of desperation becomes a way of life for Charles Scott. Having made the acquaintance of an undercover operative during his pursuit of the killer. Scott becomes entangled in the mystery of his disappearance.
As White Ghost he continues a search for answers that may or may not be black and white.
In this character driven story from Nite Lite Theatre, the initial players in this mystery begin to reveal themselves, layered through the unique character driven perspective of Charles Scott.




Created, written and edited by Mike Haseloff, drawn by Pedro Cruz, cover by Ted Wing III

Quote of the Day

"I understand why young people want to become comics artists and writers. It is to be loved. And that isn't a bad thing. But also make sure you set the goals for yourself to create good stories and good art. That way if you are loved by fans, you have taken the proper steps to earn that love. If you are not loved, you have still done your best work. You can be proud of that as well. Seek the personal satisfaction of doing your best, which is a deep, rich experience money and fame could never buy!"
-Jean Giraud

SELECTED SKETCHES 1992-2002



My sketchbook is finally available for sale!


SELECTED SKETCHES 1992-2002 is a small sample extracted from the numerous sketchbooks I've filled with drawings in the years when I was to college and the first couple of years after I'd finished it.



Covering a wide array of styles, moods, techniques and subject matters, this is also an experiment on the wild frontier of p.o.d. and self-publishing - so far, I've been pleasantly surprised with how good it turned out in terms of the printing quality. Hopefully SELECTED SKETCHES 1992-2002 represents the first of many similar ventures.
