Creature Cops #1 in stores 1/28/15

This week, the first issue of my creator-owned miniseries, Creature Cops: Special Varmint Unit #1, hits comic shops! CC is being published by IDW, in alliance with Comics Experience. It's the first title being released as a result of the new publishing alliance between the two companies.

Creature Cops is about a ragtag group of animal control officers, trying to do their job...and survive in an alternate world where hybrid, gene-spliced animals are common.

The first short in this universe, at that time called "Animal Control: Special Creatures Unit," was the story I wrote for Andy Schmidt's inaugural online Introduction to Comics Book Writing course back in October of 2009. I'm SO happy for the full miniseries to finally be available!

"Creature Cops" is written by me, with pencils by Fernando Melek, inks by Novo Malgapo, interior colors by Juan Romera, letters/design by E.T. Dollman and edited by Paul Allor (Story Editor), Andy Schmidt (Comics Experience), and Bobby Curnow (IDW). The cover to #1, shown above is by Leandro Panganiban, with colors by Kevin Volo.
