Multiversity Comics asked me to contribute to their 31 Days of Hellboy celebration and this is what I came up with.

They’ve had many excellent artists contribute work so far. Check it out:http://multiversitycomics.com/tag/20-years-of-hellboy/
You might also remember the piece I did for them last year for their 31 Days of Abe Sapien found here:http://dennisculver.tumblr.com/post/46349449136/multiversity-comics-asked-me-to-draw-abe-sapien
Pretty happy with both of them!

Story by Chris Roberson and Dennis Culver
Written by Chris Roberson
Drawn by Dennis Culver
Colored by Stephen Downer
Lettered by John J Hill
Edited by Allison Baker

Edison Rex continues his efforts to transition from super villain to super hero, in his quest to be the self-appointed defender of Earth. However, the other heroes are not convinced about Rex’s change of heart and the other villains are less than pleased with his new career.

Get it today from your local comic shop! It should be on sale in a few days at Amazon here:
http://www.amazon.com/Edison-Rex-Volume-Heir-Apparent/dp/161377916X

Dark Horse Presents #34 featuring Part 1 of
DAVEY JONES AND THE MYSTERY OF THE MONOCLE MEN

Story, words, and art by me, Dennis Culver
Colors by Sloane Leong
Letters by Christy Sawyer

Here’s the pitch:

The Mysterious Monocle Men are creeping around the town of Ishmael Bay kidnapping people including Sadie and Jackson’s grandfather. So they do what anyone would do in that situation: Put a message in a bottle asking undead ghost pirate Davey Jones for help. But will he answer their call?

(spoilers: He answers their call)

Edison Rex 14 is out and available for download on Comixology!

http://www.comixology.com/Edison-Rex-14/digital-comic/76844

Not only is the cover an homage to Love and Rockets but the whole dang comic is too! This issue contains several smaller stories exploring the relationships of some of Edison Rex’s supporting characters and interlock to tell a larger story that plays into everything we’ve seen in nearly every issue of Rex so far. It’s also the first appearance of 2014’s character of the year, HUMAN GARBAGE. All for less than a buck, Rexphiles.

I’m really proud of this one!

Has Edison Rex finally managed to convince everyone that he’s a hero now, and not the villain he used to be? And will a new generation of heroes accept him as one of their own?

This issue is a big deal for Chris and me. Along with Amelia Cole also out today we’re the first Monkeybrain books to hit the 12th issue. Not only is it an important milestone for us but it wraps up what will be the second print collection of the book which will be available in the spring from IDW.

Chris and I have put a lot of work into the overall Edison Rex story and if you’ve been reading the issues as they come out I invite you to take the time to reread all 12 issues (including the Rexfiles!) together. Each issue a satisfying read that can stand on it’s own but when linked together starts to create a much larger picture. We’ve planted a lot of seeds that are starting to bear more and more fruit as the book continues. My favorite comics are ones that reward me for rereading them all together and it’s our hope you’ll find that with our book.

Finally, if you’re enjoying our book then please help us spread the word about it. Our goal is to get Rex into the hands of everyone that would enjoy it. If you know someone that isn’t happy with the current state of the super hero genre then give them our book. We’re offering a kind of story that is not being told right now by the Big Two. We’re really proud of the work.

Thanks so much for supporting our book!
