New eBook: Fantastic Team-Ups

For the past year plus I’ve been toiling away at writing my third superhero novella, Fantastic Team-Ups.

Per me:

Tex Arkana is a hero on the run. The Punchin’ Bag is man used to taking abuse. They team up to track down Nero, the man who created and wronged them both. Following the story of The Punchin’ Bag and Tex Arkana, also available in the Kindle store, Fantastic Team-Ups sees David Drake, the erstwhile super-agent Tex Arkana, and Michael Kading, the indestructible but fallible Punchin’ Bag tracking down Nero, a brilliant scientist whose duplicitous intents have come to light. Along the way they encounter robotic drones known as Metaleviathans, gigantic villains Mass and Velossus, as well as the mysterious Agent Black Will Tex or The Punchin’ Bag find redemption from Nero? What roles do The Benefactor or the ninja Genshu play in the whole thing?

For a scant dollary-doo, you can own Fantastic Team-Ups from the Kindle Store!

Black and White Sketch of Nero

The villain of The Punching Bag and Tex Arkana


Here is a black and white inked sketch of Nero, the antagonist of both of my novellas, The Punching Bag and Tex Arkana. With the Neurological Enhancement Research Operator atop his exposed brain (which is protected by another of his devices, the polymerizer, which renders materials a nigh indestructible plastic), Nero lives up to two supervillain cliches: a brilliant mind bogged down by perpetually scheming, and ridiculous acronyms


Check out his villainous schemes in my ebooks, in Links.

Mass Character Sketch (Black and White)

Mass, dude


I put together this little pen and pencil piece featuring a supporting character from my novella, The Punchin’ Bag. His name is Mass, essentially a ‘roided out giant with ridiculous muscles and a prominent Boston accent. He’s shown here doing two of his favorite activities: flexing and tearing one of his artificially inflated muscles.

The Punchin’ Bag Sketch

The Punching Bag


Here’s a quick sketch I did of the resilient, indestructible yet not invulnerable titular hero of my first novella, The Punching Bag. Michael Kading was an ignominious office worker, but was soon thrust into a world of heroes and villains after being exposed to a mysterious device that rendered his body a super durable polymer. With Smart Alec, The Benefactor and other forces pulling the strings, can Michael find it in himself to stop being life’s punching bag?
