A few years ago Laird and I created this comic book. The hero is a character I created when I was 12 but as crime is always with us, RM remains timeless. With the exception of the Duck and Turtleman Lairdo created all the bad guys, including the dreaded Dr. Liger.

This is a panel from my ongoing comicbook project 12 O'CLOCK SOMEWHERE (or if you wanna be promotionally trendy, 12OCS.) The fact the hero and his confidant are meeting at a movie palace screening of the first incarnation of KING KONG has to do with the fact the story takes place in, that's right, 1933. I sorta like the kid in the front row wearing a beany.

Stephen Cannell, the uber-successful writer, producer and sort of creator of (my favorite) TV series THE ROCKFORD FILES, died a couple of weeks ago right here in Pasadena. When we first moved here I saw him at the local grocery store, buying seafood and I wanted ask, "Hey, is that Rock-fish you're buying?", an allusion to the nickname Issac Hayes gave Jim Rockford on the show. As it turned out, I didn't ask Cannell the question and a good thing too, as rockfish are plentiful off the Pacific coast and he very well may have been buying some. This pictured sequence, for anyone who hasn't seen one of his shows, is a nod to his production company tag that wrapped each one of his shows, wherein he'd rip a finished script page out of his typewriter (it was the 70's and 80's, remember) and tossing it into the air where it became the letter 'C'.

Anyone who looks through the postings on this site will notice that over the years I've put up more than a few pictures of my favorite monster -- the werewolf. So it was a bit of a coincidence that in June I started working on a new show entitled TEEN WOLF. A TV series about, you got it, a teen who becomes a werewolf.

It's for MTV and will premiere in the spring of 2011 and in the meantime we're coming up with cool stories that follow the trials and tribulations of just how hard it is to be a teenager... and a shape-shifting, claw sprouting, fur-covered monster.

The show was adpated by CRIMINAL MINDS creator Jeff Davis, from the 1980's movie of the same name, starring Michael J. Fox. Beyond the similar premise the TV version won't be as light hearted, has higher stakes and way more scares and definitely has a cool looking werewolf in the featured role.

Keep posted.

Some accumulated doodles.

Every episode of REAPER (both seasons available now on DVD) featured an evil soul returned from Hell, often reincarnated in visually cool and deadly form. Although I was a writer on the show I often did sketches of certain visuals to help point the visual effects guys in the right direction.
Usually they were spot on -- usually. The TV version of this returned soul wound up looking more like an agitated German Shepherd.
