Bio:

Starting with mini-comics I've been working in the industry since 1991. I was a co-founder of a small press collective called Puppy Toss, and helped produce and distribute an anthology series called Skim Lizard. I spent several years writing creator owned, original comics for Disney Adventures Magazine - most notably a little monster series called The Super Scary Monster Show - Featuring Little Gloomy. I wrote a critically acclaimed reinvention of Supergirl for DC called Supergirl: Cosmic Adventures in the 8th Grade. Wrote several Batman comics, co-wrote the Incredibles comic series with Mark Waid, co-wrote an original graphic novel called Odd Thomas with Dean Koontz, worked in Paris developing Little Gloomy into the internationally distributed television series called Scary Larry. I also wrote a whole bunch of Marvel Super Heroes Magazines and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Comics, a book sequel to Frozen and co-created and wrote a comic series for Image called Danger Club.

Much of all that was in collaboration with comics artist Eric Jones.

Most recently, I have been working on several tie-in novelettes for Star Wars: The Force Awakens for LucasFilm Press.

Mezmerella incorporated into Pixar/Incredibles float at Disneyland California Adventure.

A life size cutout of Mezmerella is a part of the "Pixar and Pals" presentation at Disneyland/California Adventure.




Mezmerella was created in late 2009 for the Boom! Studios Incredibles series I was co-writing with Mark Waid. Although he did not work on the Incredibles, Eric Jones stepped in and designed the character, which in turn was rendered by Marcio Takara (I think it's his art used here) and Ramanda Karmarga (who I believe drew the Underminer in the above image). The colors scheme for the character was selected by editor Aaron Sparrow and the name (originally Hypnotica) was the idea of my wife, Belinda Adams.

So alot of credit goes to alot of people for the character. It's pretty exciting seeing something I conceived of being a part of a Disney attraction of any kind. Even more fun to see young children interact with the inanimate character by throwing things at it.

My favorite quote from the video: "Mezmerella gets kneecapped!"

Here the full video:

Little Gloomy - the Super Scary Monster Show.

Before it was the Saturday morning cartoon series Scary Larry, it was a creator owned comic in the pages of Disney Adventures. This is back in the mid-2000's, I'd say. Art by Eric Jones and colors by Rikki Simons. Meant to evoke a bit of the old Harvey Comics vibe. Sadly, most of my files on this stuff seems to





be corrupt. So unless you have an old issue of Disney Adventures, it is likely lost to the ages...

Supergirl: Cosmic Adventures in the 9th Grade - Concept art

Been sitting on this for a couple of years now. Figured might as well let people see a bit of what we had been thinking for Supergirl's future as she enters the turbulent world of high school.

One of the things I would like to point out about these images is the evolution of Kara's design. When the first series was announced (along with an image never intended for the public) the common complaint was that our Supergirl was boyish. That she was rough looking. That she looked awkward and maybe even a little weird.

Eric could have drawn Supergirl as the epitome of style and grace. But that wouldn't have been our Supergirl. Our Supergirl was a character who needed to grow. She was overly self-aware, insecure and gangly, that's part of being a young teenager (particularly as younger teens see themselves from within) and therefore an important part of the storytelling.

I think with the slight changes to the artwork here we really begin to see Kara's self confidence manifes…
