MONTY AND THE MONSTER

When seventh-grader Monty Hyde moves for the fourth time in two years, it’s the same old story. New neighborhood, new school, new bullies, no friends. With his dad working all the time, and his older brother too popular to notice, he’s the lonely outcast yet again.

 

That is, until he discovers a mysterious human replication serum in his basement and decides to make a friend. From scratch.

 

But when he accidentally creates a revolting scary eight-foot tall monster that might be snacking on the locals, Monty sets out to undo his experiment.

 

Problem is, it's the best friend he's ever had.

ASPER

16-year-old sorceress, Milla, loses everything in an instant—her father, her home, her life as she knows it—over a sacred scroll that can merge Asper with Earth. 

Ignited by grief, she sets out for vengeance, but discovers she’s no match for the murderous queen who seeks to rule both worlds. 

Determined, Milla flees through a portal to Earth where she can master her craft without being hunted, and return for the kill. While there, she bonds with 17-year-old Parker who, despite his conniving ex-girlfriend, believes in her.

But when a spell her father cast to bury her memories begins to wane, glimpses of a past she never knew start surfacing. A past so unthinkable, it derails her future.

Should she still do what she set out to? Or risk everything—Earth, Asper, Parker—for the sake of hope?

BLOWBACK

graphic novel​​

Sergeant Davis and his team of Marines deploy on a mission to suppress a military coup in Haiti when their helicopter is ripped apart during a severe lightning storm. Only Davis and four others survive the crash, washing ashore, but not on Haiti. To their shock, they discover they’re in 18th century Bermuda, having traveled through a wormhole. They fall in with a group of Colonial Rebels who are keen to adopt the Marines’ weaponry in their fight against the British Redcoats but Davis refuses to interfere in history and instead focuses on getting his men home safely. But when he encounters the pirate ship that has been terrorizing the waters—a British World War II Destroyer transplanted from the 40s, with a captain who is bent on stopping the American Revolution—Davis realizes he needs to fight now for his country, or he won’t have a country to fight for.
