FINALLY: TALES OF WEIRD CRIME with Doctor Satan — FREE 30 pages of pulse pounding pulp story, part one. Welcome to the Golden Age.

Part One of Three – 30 pages. See PDF for all details. Part Two is getting edited for polish.




In 1938 Doctor Satan opens a supernatural gate and summons a horrible and deadly monster in the middle of a titanic hurricane. All over Gotham City, police officers are brutally slaughtered by a ghostly executioner from the other side, walking with young black men, now ghosts, that never had a chance to see justice done when they were alive.

Over a hundred police could die in a fortnight, in a wave of supernatural blowback. The death of Jim Corrigan is key, as he is the first officer to fall. His death launches Doctor Satan’s deadly plot to use a wrathful spectre of vengeance to decimate the Gotham PD.

A circle of anonymous vigilantes gathers to face the approaching storm, working in the shadows. The mysterious Sandman runs the opposition to Doctor Satan and his insidious plot. Female adventurer the Black Fury and her partner, the Green Lantern join the group as new members. Carter Hall, international adventurer, brings the weapons as quartermaster, and Doctor Fate lends his strength as a sorcerer.

And deep in the dark of the night, the Shadow laughs.

“When policemen break the law, then there isn’t any law. Just a fight for survival.” –From the ballad of Billy Jack




JSA 1938: Blue Massacre in Gotham City (Pulp Story)

JSA 1938: Blue Massacre, the story of the Mystery Men that formed the first JSA in 1938, set in Gotham City. I do not own the copyrights to these characters, so these materials are NOT FOR SALE (fair use). DC has also been throwing away its Golden Age inventory, showing no intent to keep publishing. So, I thought I would show DC how to use their Golden Age inventory in a fresh, inventive and fun manner (FOR FREE!!). The final story is a 50 page pulp story that tells the story with words rather than pictures, and a few illustrations. See below for Synopsis.

First draft of part one (25 pages) is pretty tight. Could be done after this weekend. Part 2 is also mostly written. I just have to fix some pages and write the final battle (already plotted out). I just saw my income situation get some help, and my health is better. So, I hope to be posting a LOT more. The past few months has been difficult, but I did produce a lot. I am sitting on a lot of stuff that needs just a final polish and scan.

Should be a lot of stuff posted in this space coming up real soon. Enjoy! -Brian



JSA 1938: Blue Massacre in Gotham City.


In 1938 Doctor Satan opened a supernatural gate and summoned a horrible and deadly monster in the middle of a titanic hurricane.

All over Gotham City, police officers are brutally slaughtered by a monster from the occult world, who crossed over to our side by black magic. The creature targets coppers and raises ghosts to testify. All of these officers had a secret to hide, except Detective Jim Corrigan, victim number one. The Gotham City Police are hopeless as the union muzzles everyone. They were unprepared for a blue massacre by a howling spectre, and blood on the walls. Over four dozen police could die in a fortnight, when the harvesting moon will take the sky without shadow. Solomon Grundy has risen from the swamp, and and the man holding his leash is Doctor Satan, master of walking corpses.

A circle of anonymous vigilantes gathers to face the approaching storm. They form a circle of virtuous men, working in the shadows. The mysterious  Sandman runs the opposition to Doctor Satan and the Spectral Creature. Female adventurer the Black Fury and her partner, the Green Lantern join the group as new members. Carter Hall, international adventurer brings the weapons as quartermaster, and Doctor Fate lends his strength as a sorcerer.

JSA 1938 – is a period correct look at the Golden Age comics and Pulp stories of the time. I have applied my graduate degree in Interwar History (1918 to 1941) and a lot research to create an exploration of the Depression Era, just before Pearl Harbor.









(Update) Takedown Part 7 – Escape Velocity (7 pages)

This installment is coming together very quickly. I just finished the pencils, and inking should go quickly. The keynote on this one is simplicity of presentation, and if possible a homage of Wally Wood inks, if I can manage it. Ink the lines and swash on a little light gray highlights, aaaaand its done. Probably in one week, just in time for Thanksgiving. The more color, the longer it takes. This one is going quick. After this installment (part seven) the only thing left to complete for issue Six is one epilogue, “Dinner with the Family.”

You can read past intallments of Takedown with Japan’s Greatest Ninja here for free on this page.

Oberon Destroyers: The Quiet Ninja (23rd of the House of Ugamoto)

(NEW) Takedown Part Six – Showdown with the Reptile (7 pages)

Here is the latest installment of Takedown, part six, Issue Six of Oberon Destroyers. It feels like I have been writing and designing this for three years, becasue I have. You can catch up on the story here on the page collecting all the chapters.

This is the final showdown. After this, there is one more chapter (seven) and one epilogue. Then I move on to Issue Seven, that gathers the entire team in once place.





(REPRINT) The Mask of Doctor Satan, Guest Starring Harry Houdini, Part ONE, Free PDF

One year later, and this is still the most popular feature on my site. I did this one feverish month in Autumn, 2014, in a tailspin of inspriation. Dr. Satan is a Paul Ernst concoction, now in the public domain. I stuck to the spirit of Ernst’s creatioin, but when in a much more “thrill packed” direction. Enjoy. Just 14 pages. Comments and Likes would inspire me to continue the tale. Guest starring Harry Houdini. Click on Link for Free PDF. All text with a few illustrations.

You can find the story (26 pages, up to part 5) here on this page (Free) Issue 6 – TakeDown

Cover is a tribute to all the old cover artists of the Shadow by Maxwell Grant and others in pulp magazines of the 1930, which somehow works with the Japanese ad copy. I also surprised myself with all the Kaluta and Wrightston style touches. I first encountered their Shadow when I was eight (40 years ago). I loved their horror style on the Shadow, mixed with crime drama and pulp heroics.

Five chapters have already been completed (26 pages so far). Three more chapters left – I have been telling the story in a series of 4-8 page installments. I created a new page to group the entire story in one place for easy viewing. Please see here.

The Quiet Ninja is Japan’s Greatest Ninja and a key player in the secret Occult Wars. He is puritanical in his desire to destroy occult villains that seek to gain the upper hand against humans through sorcery and hocus pocus (see previous issues). His family has been on the frontline of this war for 2000 years. This issue is all action, and gets pretty bloody. Most of the story is silent action sequences with little or no dialogue.


(NEW) OBERON DESTROYERS: TAKEDOWN: PART FIVE featuring the Quiet Ninja (8 pages in color)

Finally! My pens ran out this month, and I wasn’t able to get adequate replacements (art supplies industry is not helpful) So, I went with some computer fixes, adjusting my raw analog master pages with a few easy tricks – adjust brightness/contrast, adjust color balance, and a little bit of paint bucket for deeper blacks when my pens ran too dry to saturate well. Also, a few fun backgrounds for enemy HQ, just like last chapter. Usually, I just like to draw and post, and not mess around with a lot of computer fixes.

This installment is the one that dooms my G rating. This time it’s (V) for violence, but my Ninja is more than anything else a badass action hero. So what can you do? Pretty tame compared to what most teens see in their media…..
Enjoy!! Cheers, -B.
