WELCOME
Hey Friends - can you believe it's April already? Time flies when you haven't left the house in over a year! Hope you are doing well and hanging in there! Just a few reminders and updates on Fire Power and Jonna, so read on if you can!
FIRE POWER #10 OUT TODAY!
Fire Power #10 is out today! Go support your local comic shop and grab your copy! And a reminder that the second trade volume is out, so you can catch up if you're not already picking it up. The trades can be ordered at your local comic shop  or Amazon or Barnes & Noble or Powells or your local indie bookshop!

Someone recently asked on Twitter about what was inspiring my fight choregraphy in the book and I thought it would be fun to share that info here too - for anyone else looking for inspiration. Shaw Brothers films (Five Deadly Venoms, Five Fingers of Death, etc.) have been a huge influence as well as the Ip Man Movies with Donnie Yen. I've also been inspired by the Battle Angel comics for kinetics and motion blurs and the action in Dragon Ball, Slam Dunk, etc. Always up for hearing Kung Fu movie recommendations - send 'em if you got 'em!
Here's a peek at the covers for Fire Power #11 (out 5/5/21 - Diamond Code MAR210191) and Fire Power #12 (out 6/2/21 - Diamond Code APR210165)!  We have a special oversized 12th issue with a whole host of amazing artists doing variant covers - Frank Quitely, Mindy Lee, Tula Lotay, Todd McFarlaneSimone Di MeoTonci ZonjicRob LiefeldAnnie WuErik LarsonKhary Randolph, and Frank Miller! WHAT A LIST!

DOODLE SALE - COMING (KINDA) SOON
I've been getting a lot of emails about selling the little doodles I post on Instagram and Twitter. Laura is working on getting a sale put together and is aiming for sometime in June after the kids are out of school for the summer and she's not juggling virtual school as well! Stay tuned for more info in the next newsletter!
COMMISSION UPDATE
I currently don't have plans to take commissions any time soon. This can always change depending on my schedule, but right now, I'm not anticipating that I will take commissions this year. If that changes, I will always include that information in a future newsletter as well as on twitter and instagram.
