The Fix #1




"The Fix is about two LAPD Robbery Homicide Detectives, Roy and Mac. They've gotten themselves into a bit of trouble, and in trying to get themselves out of it, they've gotten themselves into a bit more. From there, the story spirals out city-wide, touching Hollywood, organized crime, local politics, and the news media. It's like The Wire, if The Wire were primarily focused on jokes about … “manhood” envy. I really wish David Simon would've tackled that more head-on."

Generation Gone #1




"Generation Gone is a story of three hacker kids who get superpowers and their lives fall apart just as the military goes after them. It’s SKINS meets UNBREAKABLE and bits of AKIRA and who knows what else, set in the United States of America, pretty much NOW. It’s raw and it’s real and it’s elevated and it goes places that, I believe, will surprise most readers."

- Ales Kot

"If I’m making a story set in the US right now, it’s impossible to not be political. As a matter of fact, it’s always impossible to not be political. Even a refusal to be political is a political statement. And not one that ages well. That, of course, doesn’t mean I have to be didactical or simplistic. I’m not interested in that. What I’m interested in exploring and showing is real people going through extraordinary changes and circumstances. What I’m interested in is exorcism as alchemy."

Kill or be Killed #9




"I hope we're playing the violence in a very real way. I want it to have impact, because this is a story that is playing in that lone killer vigilante genre like TAXI DRIVER and DEATH WISH and so many others, but at the same time it's kind of flipping it around, too. Examining it from a different point of view.

I wanted to really get deep into what it would be like to have to become a vigilante. The kinds of things that physical violence will do to you, to your mental health and your body. It's a story that will grow in scope as it goes along, too, because becoming a killer creates a lot of ripples in the world, and I want to follow those, too."
