2011! Back to the drawing board.

Everyone on team Jetta would like to thank each and every reader of Jetta: Tales of the Toshigawa for a successful 2010 and a very promising 2011. In reflection, I remember the days when only Kevin and I were reading our stories. The road was harder then and the doors kept slamming in our face. Just when it seemed I was fed up with the rigors of self publishing, a door or two would open and eventually lead me back to Jetta and the Toshigawa world. I’m really happy to be able to share this character and story that I love with you. I hope you continue to join us on this adventure and help to make Jetta a bright example of the great artistic endeavors found in independent comic books.

Muley’s 2009 Christmas Whine

MOV00414_0001Well, hello from your favorite MAW Productions Editor (the only one, in fact).  By now, you’re aware that I had an ugly spill whie performing a mascot for a local team and broke my arts arm.  The plan was to forego any Chritmas video this year, but due to the inspiration of all my friends, Muley did a quick little video for 2009 (with the help of Martheus Wade who had a ‘helping hand’ in the making of this video).

Click the mule to see the video.

Also, Martheus had a hand in the creation of a popular character of the MuleyVerse, the holiday icon we all fear: SANTA FISH! Click here to learn more about Santa Fish.

Seasons Greetings!
