I'm drawing a graphic novel called EARTH BOY! Follow along weekly during its creation.

Hello, friends!

I'm a comic book and storyboard artist from Portland, OR. I'm most known as the primary artist of the Plants vs Zombies comics, written by Paul Tobin, and published by Dark Horse Comics. Paul and I have done seven volumes of Plants vs Zombies together, and now we are working on our own original graphic novel, Earth Boy.

Earth Boy is an all-ages story about Benson Chow, the only human student at an all-alien school: the Kayrus Galactic Ranger Academy. 

Farm-raised Benson Chow finds himself as the first and only person from Earth ever enrolled at Kayrus. In between studying for his language tests (there are 4132 “main” languages in the Galactic Federation) and kind-of-almost making friends, and getting “accidentally” stranded on alien planets during field trips, Benson discovers he was only offered his scholarship because he’s a “quota” student, meaning that he wasn’t offered a place because the school believes in him and his potential, but only because the Galactic Federation gives tax breaks to schools that enroll certain types of students, like the poor, backwoods, uncultured Earth Boy

Paul has written a very fun script, and I will be spending the next year or so drawing, coloring, and lettering the artwork! Follow along and find out how Benson navigates friendships, nemeses, teaches, classes, homesickness, and space adventures in this 123-page stand-alone story!

Full Disclosure: Earth Boy does have a publisher already. This Drip is for those who would like early access to read a pre-release version of the book one page at a time, well before it's out. Once Earth Boy is completed and published, it will be available anywhere books and comics are sold.


If Earth Boy has a publisher already, why do you need a Drip?

While do we have a publisher, the reality of creator-owned work is that it often doesn't pay as well up front as work-for-hire jobs like Plants vs Zombies. Having this Drip will help me pay my bills while I'm working on the book!

If I subscribe to your Drip, will I receive a copy of Earth Boy when it's finished?

Unfortunately, no. This is exclusively a first-look preview of the comic, and not intended as a purchase of the actual book.
