He’s also contributed to Image, Dark Horse, and IDW comics, on titles such as Tellos, The Perhapanauts, Savage Dragon, Invincible, TMNT, and Madman.

Manager Pete Beaudoin says, “Some of my favorite comic books are creator-owned because they expose the full range of talent behind the creator. It’s a more intimate look into their process and ideas.”
