In the meantime, here’s a taste of his newest projects: children’s books THE PRINCESS WHO SAVED HERSELF, based on a Jonathan Coulton song, and the upcoming ABC DISGUSTING, along with the western/fantasy comic, Kingsway West.
The Princess Who Saved Herself reinvents the princess myth for a new generation of proactive girls, telling the story of an awesome kid who lives with her pet snake and plays rock ‘n’ roll all day to the huge annoyance of the classical guitarist witch who lives down the road. Hijinks, conflicts, and a fun reconciliation ensue, all showcasing determination, bravery, and understanding.
ABC Disgusting tells the story of a boy trying to shock his older sister with an alphabetical series of disgusting things. But in the end, she hits him with what might be the biggest gross-out of all.
Kingsway West is a new Dark Horse comic book series written by Greg Pak with art by Mirko Colak about a Chinese gunslinger searching for his wife in an Old West overrun by magic.
