Tortall Comics Project

In January of 2011, I started an online comics anthology entitled the Tortall Comics Project, based on novel series written by young adult author Tamora Pierce. Over the two years it took to complete the project, I took on the roles of Director, Co-Producer, and Lead Editor, as well as completing my own five-page comic (shown below) and helping to letter four other entries. With a total of 28 completed entries by 26 different artists and over 270 pages of comics and illustrations, the book was put on the self-publishing site Lulu in September of 2012. Since then, the anthology has been bought or downloaded by over 1,400 readers, with the author herself acquiring copies for her friends.
