My latest comic, Mary is complete! As promised, you can read it online here for free!
The story is about Mary, a young girl who has seen her share of tragedy and misfortune. Indeed, Death has followed her since the day she was born, lurking just around the corner.

I’ll have hard copies of this at the Small Press Expo 2014 in North Bethesda, September 13th and 14th, and you can download a digital copy for your kindle/ipad/whatever it is you kids are using here!
