The Oni Press solicitations for the October Previews catalog are up, and DOWN SET FIGHTis finally in there! This is the 144-page OGN that Chad Bowers and I wrote, with art by Scott Kowalchuk! It’s our first graphic novel, and we are all insanely excited for it.
Here’s the official solicitation:
DOWN SET FIGHT! GN
Written by Chris Sims, Chad Bowers, art by Scott Kowalchuk.
One man versus every mascot in professional sports. They will all be punched. It’s kick-off time for this year’s most action-packed and hilarious comic!
"Fearless" Chuck Fairlane was football’s fastest rising star, but his career came to a screeching halt when he was expelled from the league affter goin’ HAM and causing the biggest brawl in the history of sports. Years later, Chuck has found peace as a high school football coach, until costumed mascots begin attacking him for seemingly no reason. Before long, Chuck’s going to discover that you can’t run away from the past — but you can punch it square in the face!
144 pages, $19.99.
Once the catalog hits shelves (next week), please please tell your local retailer that you want a copy (assuming that you do want a copy), because that’s how books get ordered. And if you don’t have a local comics retailer, you can also pre-order it on Amazon right now!! Holy buckets!
I don’t care about football but I am ALL ABOUT fights and this looks like a whole lotta fun!!
SUBATOMIC PARTY GIRLS IN THE HOUSE.
I’m ridiculously happy with how this came out. Also, I know I already tweeted about this but I love drawing Chad’s nose. It’s adorbs.

I’m starting to think that Holly might not have the band’s best interests in mind.
Crank up those keytars, Action Agents! Subatomic Party Girls #2 is finally here!
In this issue, the girls of Beryllium Steel have made it to the other side of the galaxy, where they’re called on to make a command performance for the mysterious Boss Drixly! Who is he? What is he? And what’s the deal with that t-shirt? Plus, Erica brings you the first in a set of paper dolls to cut out of your monitor and dress up to your heart’s content! This month: Cleo, the band’s frontwoman and vocalist!
All this can be yours for one thin dollar at Comixology! And if you missed the first issue, well, what are you waiting for?!
Enjoy this preview of page 1.
OH HEY GUYS. STAY TUNED FOR A DATE. A SECOND ISSUE OF SUBATOMIC PARTY GIRLS IS COMING TO YOU SOON.
I’m glad I can finally start showing this cover. What’s a fun space rock comic without some Sylvia Plath references?
It’s available for preorder RIGHT NOW, with a release coming next Wednesday!
Don’t... tell the audience, show them.
So, today I was trying to write the first three pages of the comic…
A few weeks ago I decided that the whole story should revolve around this crazy debate between our villain and the devil about human nature and it should open ‘The Departed’ style with…
The binder of prints on my table is mostly pretty normal- illustrations from books, fanart, some unrelated personal work. Right at the back though, without warning, is a batch of male superhero pinups. This elicits a variety of responses ranging from mild arousal to giggling to turning the pages…
