Freedman was serialized in 23 parts on this site throughout 2011. Freedman is a story of revenge, slavery, race, and the people history has forgotten. Or, in more bombastic terms:

At the end of the Civil War, four million people were freed from chains of bondage. One of these newly freed men, Charlie Moses, wanders the Texas countryside as he tries to right an injustice from his past. But is vengeance all there is? What does it truly mean to be free?

Past Projects

Transit #1

Transit is a story of being in your 20s in the city, somewhat lost, and yet not totally alone. It’s a story of transitioning from one era of your life to another. And it’s a story of the connections between people that sometimes keep us alive. This is the first part of a three-part story, which I hope to return to someday.


You Don’t Know Much About Jesus

Bruce Lee fights Jesus Christ. No joke.


Google Doppelgangers

Eight Days Until Election Day

In the run-up to the 2008 presidential election, I found myself racked with anxiety and obsessively following the news. Watch as I slowly go insane in 9 panels...


Abandoned Project


So I thought it’d be really cool to do a comic that mashed up a bunch of my interests, including kung-fu and the history of New York City’s Chinatown. This turned out to be harder than I had expected. In the interests of I’m too lazy to take this down, have a look at one of my failures.
