Adventures in Science #1

The good folks at Dead Canary Comics  were kind enough to have me back to do some pages on their new book: Adventures in science, set to be released in early November 2017!

The 'official' word on this project is as follows:

Welcome to 10 wicked visions of mankind's frighteningly fantastical future! 

ADVENTURES IN SCIENCE! is a neon-soaked, darkly comic, technicolor graphic anthology daring to tell the fates of imagined futures!
Dead Canary Comics have assembled a crack team of artistic architects to build worlds beyond imagining! These pioneering pencil prodigals have bled blood to bring you nightmare visions of a futuristic prison system, the next stage in warfare, the humdrum life of a single-women, and everything in between!
Each story is a self-contained 'what if', a pulpy adventuristic delight of scientific dreaming, a sideways glance at "what could be". Some stories are funny, some are serious, some are deep... all are guaranteed to entertain
These tales have been lovingly curated and compiled to make a fantastical, mind-blowing graphic novel by the team that brought you The Fitzroy Comic, Reddin, Last Driver and The Frogman Trilogy.

Matt Fitch wrote the story I drew, and here is a sneak peek:

Head on over to the Dead Canary Comics website to grab a copy!

Pod Cast interview on Speech bubble

Here is one of the most in depth interviews I've done in a long time. If you want to hear me talk about, RAID studio, Frank Quitely, beers and X-men, Undertow and many other topics...check this out! 
Today Aaron Broverman talks with comic artist Gibson Quarter of R.A.I.D. Studio. The co-creator of The Organ Grinder is a Belleville, Ontario native, and his deepest regret is selling all his early X-Men comics... for beer money 😱

Tune-in to his crazy story here:

ORGAN GRINDER Trade Paperback Collection!

This year at the 2017 Emerald City Comic Con, 7th Wave comics will release The Organ Grinder Trade paperback.

This is super exciting for me, as its the first time that over 100 pages of my artwork will be available in the same book!

The book collects the Luke Donkersloot written Organ Grinder pages that appeared in the Undertow issues #1-6, plus all the covers and pin ups that have been published. Its kinda like an Omnibus edition for all things 'OG'! (and it also includes a NEW 16 page story with inks by Pat Davidson!)

The book will be available online after ECCC and I'll have copies available at my artist alley spot at shows I'm attending later this year. (Calgary Expo, Fan Expo, etc)

I'm also attending the Emerald City Comic Con for the launch, signing and sketching (defacing?) copies of the Book.  Come by the 7th Wave Comic's booth and say hello!
