I have a comic book!

Right up front, I’ll be honest – this post is more dorky than it is daddy.

My cover as a comic book fan was blown a long time ago. I’ve been into comics since I was a wee lad and while my tastes have changed over the years, I still very much enjoy the comic book format.

That’s why it has been a dream come true for me recently to be a part of a comic book project myself, as a creator.

Holidaze is the bar where all our favorite holiday and mythical icons of childhood meet, drink, chat, and get into all kinds of trouble. Think of it kind of like “Cheers,” but with holiday characters. I admit up front, this one’s not for the kiddies.


The second issue just hit digital newsstands, but I’ve waited until we were at issue two before I mentioned it on here for two very big reasons.

The first reason being that the first issue was a short story, and was released around Christmas, with a Christmas-themed story. The artist and I really thought that issue two gave a much better idea of where we were taking the series beyond stories about the holidays themselves. Issue Two, we think, really shows what the series is about – it’s about the characters of the holidays and what their lives are like, not necessarily the holiday itself.

Secondly, having issue two come out just serves as a sort of validation that, yes, this is, in fact, a series. Not a one-shot, not a special, but a legitimate series.

It’s available for multiple reading devices, whether it be your iPad, iPhone, Nook, Kindle, or any tablet with those apps. We’re also working and hoping to be on Comixology in the near future as well, but that’s a work in progress.

It’s been a labor of love and something I’ve been having an absolute blast getting to make into a reality. It’s different from anything else I think I’ve ever written, and while it’s definitely a more offbeat, adult sense of humor, I really do think it’s a lot of fun.

So, for any of you comic book fans like myself out there, here’s some links below. Please, give it a read and check it out. I hope you like it.

Holidaze #2When Patty’s pot of gold is stolen by a ruthless thug, his luck begins to change. But is it for the better or the worse? Find out why they call it the “Luck of the Irish” Available on iTunes, Nook, and Kindle.

Holidaze #1When Santa over-indulges on Christmas Eve, the other holiday icons band together to try and make his rounds. If they don’t, they risk the children of the world ending their belief in Santa, and soon them, ending all of their existence.  Available on iTunes, Nook, and Kindle.

If you dig it, feel free to give us a thumbs up and a ‘like’ over at the Holidaze Facebook page.

If not, well, I’ll be back to more parenting posts shortly. 🙂

So many people say they want to be "the cool parents," but I have no such delusions about myself. I'm as nerdy now as I always have been. Only my perspective has changed. I am what I am. I'm the dorky daddy.

    1. Thanks! It’s been a ton of fun. I’d very much like to one day do something that’s more all-ages (i.e. something my son CAN read versus this one), but much like this blog, it’s been a nice way to still keep my mind creatively happy while earning a living elsewhere in a not so creative way.

      1. Very cool. I’m currently trying to find my way to be creative while still making my living in corporate america, so it’s encouraging to see a fellow dad out there making it happen!
