Ad for Crescent City Magick by mlpeters
Ad for Crescent City Magick
I think this represents my book, pretty well... some visual poetic romanticism, some horror... and in the panel excerpted here with dialog, some humor.

Mixed traditional and digital.  The art, both the painting and the pen & ink comics panels, were done traditionally and the main logo letter shapes were drawn and scanned... but I put it all together, added the blurb copy and effects on the logo, with PhotoShop.  It's supposed to be a sort of taste of the whole graphic novel.  I'd buy it :)

hello sir! Very impressed with your comic art, its a breathe of professionalism on deviant art. Your work reminds me a lot of Michael Zulli, or even of Bernie Wrightson. I very much admire your attention to detail and sense of pacing on the page.

What are your plans for printing crescent magic?

Sorry for the extremely late reply. Had horrible dial-up for a while. Thank you for your compliments! I do admire and have met, both Michael Zulli and Bernie Wrightson and many other artist.
Currently, I'm writing and drawing a second story arc for CRESCENT CITY MAGICK. Due to the changing market and the limitations of the current creator-owned publishers, I'm plannign on publishing CCM as a graphic novel, perhaps as a series of graphic novels. The first arc, of four issue/chapters added up to 88 pages, which is small for a GN, so I'm doing a second arc, now, and plan both to be packeaged together. Whether I'll find a good publisher to work with, or self-publish, is still in question.
Thank you for your interest.
