It’s been a crazy year for me as my 2nd Master’s program comes to a close. I’ve been doing less short fiction this year but I have taken some freelance table top roleplay game work. I’m under several NDA right now but I can’t wait until I can share what I’ve been working on. It’s been a fun learning process and I get to work with a company I’ve wanted to work with for a while.
I submitted the completed pages of the Devil to my publisher Screaming Eye Press with a few lore heavy extras. We’ll see when it’ll be ready for release. It’s got several more months of run time before it concludes here on the site! There won’t be too much of a break between The Devil and the Lovers!
Nicoy and I have started working ahead. The Lovers is a revisiting of the original Pilot of Salient Caligation. I’ve grown as a writer since the comic started and I wanted it to be complete under a single artist. I had a lot of help with Salient Caligation over the years but I want it to be more consistent. I’m not as constrained by page count so I will try to tell the story in as many pages as it needs. I’m not sure how many pages the Lovers will end up being, but likely it will be as long as the Devil, maybe longer. I’m still writing the script between other projects and coursework.
If you like the comic and want to help out, consider leaving a review on The Eight of Swords on Good Reads or Amazon!

You can now buy a copy of Touching the Abyss: The 8 of Swords.
The Devil is shaping up to be about 50 pages before extras. I should have the last pages in time for an early 2021 release. I have decided to rewrite the pilot episode, so “the Lovers” it will provide new content vs being a straight panel for panel redraw of the original Chapter 1- Contracts.
Rolling forward, this will be the chapter set-up for Salient Caligation:
I am happy to announce that I have signed with Screaming Eye Press and a revised edition of Salient Caligation will be released in the coming months. Stay tuned! I will keep up The Devil Parts 1 & 2, but when I get all of the pages- it’ll be compiled and released by Screaming Eye Press!
