Print & Comics
I created and wrote the “Johnny Sorrow” story that appeared in (the now highly collectible) DC Comics Solo #12, the Brendan McCarthy issue. Brendan is a friend. He is also a multi-talented writer & illustrator who has done remarkable work in several mediums. You saw “Mad Max: Fury Road” right? He wrote it. He is weirdly brilliant in all the best ways one can be weirdly brilliant.
After contributing several pieces to the online version of McSweeney’s, including this compilation of quotes from my former Hollywood bosses, the good people of that empire invited me to contribute to their “best humor” compilation: Created in Darkness by Troubled Americans. They were then nice enough to invite me along for part of the book’s “tour” so I got to participate in readings in Los Angeles and San Francisco with a bunch of the other contributors. It was absolutely as fun as it sounds. Note: Buy the paperback. It is cheaper and there are more of my pieces in it.
…and like any self-respecting writer, I have several other projects (both fiction and non-fiction) in various stages of development and completion, including an eBook containing the first volume of highlights from my Ask A Punk advice column. …so always stay tuned.
While I do spend most of my time writing comedy & fiction of various kinds, The Los Angeles Times ran a sweet, romantic and true story I wrote that explained how I met my girlfriend at a movie theater here in LA. All these years later, we’re still together.
I was also a contributor & erstwhile fact-checker for The Official Punk Rock Book of Lists.
