4 Seconds Press Roundup!

4 Seconds is my original comics property, published by Mark Waid’s Thrillbent!

Here is a roundup all all the press the series has attracted so far (and this list is kept updated here, let me know if I’ve missed something!)

4 Seconds

4 Seconds is a noir thriller about a petty thief who discovers she can see four seconds into the future. That’s just enough precognition to get into trouble, but not nearly enough time to pull off the heist that will save her sister’s life.

4 Seconds is a digital-native comic story that expands the boundaries of storytelling thanks to Thrillbent’s unique platform.

4 Seconds Is Here!

It has been a long and winding road, but my original comics story 4 Seconds has been published at last!

4 Seconds is a noir thriller about a petty thief who discovers she can see four seconds into the future. That’s just enough precognition to get into trouble, but not nearly enough time to pull off the heist that will save her sister’s life.

4 Seconds

4 Seconds is published by Mark Waid’s Thrillbent. It is a digital comic that takes full advantage of the online storytelling medium — it is not a “motion comic” or a conventional comic placed online, but instead a new way of telling comic book stories. It is a complete story and it is 100% FREE to read RIGHT NOW at Thrillbent.com!

I will have plenty more to say about the production of 4 Seconds in later posts — from the book’s origin as a fifteen second pitch that won Mark Waid’s open story competition at San Diego Comic-Con, through the research I did into the comics storytelling form, to the concept art we developed to show you exactly what it is like to see four seconds into the future … but for now, please mouse on over to Thrillbent and read 4 Seconds!

(And then come back here and tell me what you think!)

My heartfelt thanks go out to publisher Mark Waid, my artistic partner Karl Kesel, visual designer Billy King, and the entire 4 Seconds team for busting their asses bringing this story to life! It has been the “thrill” of a lifetime working on this project … so go read it, already!
