This blog digs into the history of how Envoy 82 was created. This is a MASSIVE SPOILER blog post, and if you have not read the series, please do so first. It is free and quite fun, grab it here: https://darkbraincomics.com/envoy82.htm I began Envoy 82 well into DarkBrain’s run, so I had a few years of producing comics under my belt. I had hired in great talent while making those comics and I wanted to implement what I had learned so far. Nathan Reese had been editing many of my series and his insights were quite powerful. One of the biggies was to start with the ending, then work backward and ensure that everything in the story drove to the ending.Continue
Much of DarkBrainComics restored!
I was able to take a big bite out of restoring content to DarkBrainComics.com. Twelve series were put up with a total of 2,200+ pages of free content and over 5 hours of free video!

Titles restored: Mirror/Mirror, Church of One/Two, Columbia’s Underbelly, Locked Out, Envoy 82, Grace Comes Home, God Play, Too Important, Zeopatra, Pissy Pussy, Sexy Sundays with Pissy Pussy, Haunting Ivy, and The Butcher. I also put up The Vat, but that one is in bad shape technically, still, it is such an emotional title for me that I wanted it up there too.Continue

As such, I am going to open up a significant portion of our comics to be completely free. I will be updating darkbraincomics.com as this rolls out, and not duplicating posts here on darkbrain.com. This site I intend to be more of a blog and to focus on my next project… Boneeaters.Continue
Resurfacing? Rejecting integration
Looks like time to poke my head out and see what I want DarkBrain to be or become… One thing that I have decided – it is about “integration.” This is a term I heard in a career workshop when I discussed my comic projects (which I was clearly passionate about) vs my normal career (which I did not speak of in anywhere near the same passion). The suggestion was to try to integrate my passion into my career.Continue
