In Development: PIN 

It's always exciting to see something new. 

That's the best thing about writing comics--the thrill you get when you recieve new pages. 

You can imagine it, you can dream it in your head, you can put down the most perfect script there is, but when it comes to art, there's always a little bit of magic that comes out of a collaboration. 

PIN is a supernatural short story that I wrote this summer, drawn by my friend Ho Anderson. This is a big deal as Ho, who is known for the landmark biography of Martin Luther King (KING) and more recently the supernatural thriller SAND & FURY, has largely retired from comics to focus on filmmaking as a writer and director. 

Right when he showed me the breakdown of the thumbnails, it was incredible--the point of view, the angles used for each panel nailed each moment of the story so perfectly to get the best effect.

I suggested that his skill as a cartoonist, the ability to find the best way to convey a moment, is transferable to his new role as director. Ho replied: 

"It's the same thing, man." 

So there you go. 

In PIN-- two would-be thugs pick-on the wrong target and an ATM heist turns into a supernatural nightmare. Will any of them get out alive? Only if they know the code...

PIN is part of my new short story collection A NAIL IN THE HEART II, coming in 2013.

Also, not to give too much away, but Ho draws some hella scary monsters, tapping into his inner Del Toro. You'll want to check this out for sure.
