The New Tara Normal Graphic Novel Now Available!

My new Tara Normal graphic novel is now available in the TaraNormal Shop!

This is Book One of the ongoing series of Tara books and I couldn’t be happier with how the physical book turned out. It was made possible by the funding of my successful Kickstarter campaign this past October. I’d like to take the time to thank everyone again who helped and supported the Tara Normal Kickstarter. This book is truly a dream came true for me.

The foreward to the book is written by Chip Coffey, star of Paranormal State and Psychic Kids. And the introduction is written by Dirk Manning, Image Comics and Devil’s Due author.

This book truly shows Tara’s abilities, smarts and bravery and she fights her greatest foe yet in a story that is a tribute to my comic’s webcomic roots and the readers and fans who have kept me creating Tara stories since 2009 at

I truly hope you take the time to read this story. I am very proud of it and I think you’ll discover that Tara is a hero this world needs.

If you’d like to view preview pages from the book, my webiste has an entire archive for you to check out:

New Art: Star-Lord from Guardians of the Galaxy

Chris Pratt StarLord Guardians of the Galaxy

I really loved Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy and Chris Pratt’s performance as Star-Lord. I was inspired by its awesomeness to draw him in full dance-off mode.

Just wanted to share a new commission I drew for an order from my art site. It’s always fun to draw Norman Reedus as Daryl Dixon from my favorite show, The Walking Dead.

Chip Coffey believes Modern Family’s Sarah Hyland would make a perfect Tara Normal in a movie or show. I agree!

Yesterday my friend Chip Coffey, star of Psychic Kids and Paranormal State, tweeted to me that he thought Modern Family star Sarah Hyland would be perfect in the role of Tara Normal if it was a movie or TV series. I totally agree! Sarah’s a brilliant and beautiful actor and looks great with Tara’s hairdo too. I’d love to see her punch some ghouls as Tara if an adaptation was ever made.

Plus, Chip’s psychic so if anybody would know if Sarah would be perfect for Tara, it’s Chip.

I have some convention appearances scheduled in the next couple of months and it all begins this weekend in Washington DC at Awesome Con. I heard this is a great show from people who attended last year so I backed their Kickstarter to be a part of this year’s Artist Alley line-up. Here’s Awesome Con’s site to get tickets:
