It seems as though a lot of people share in our enthusiasm for bringing the world’s first lesbian paranormal detective from the retro-future to the printed page.

We’ve already run out of the Early Bastard Special and many of the limited prints are selling…

Not only have we run out of the early-bird special, but the Sherbet Trade Paperback also been chosen as a Kickstarter Staff Pick!  Wheee!

But we still need your help in making this book happen, so make sure to check out the awesome art & rewards and consider being a part of the Next Big Thing in comics. ;)

As Howard Kleinman says, “Fans of female lead characters, Sherlock Holmes, paranormal mystery, comedy, steampunk, crazy monsters. You should totally check out Sherbet.”

Chang’e Dark + Light. Cool + Warm. Reflect + Project. Moon + Sun. Yin + Yang.
I was asked to contribute to Dark Horse Comics’ Once Upon a Time Machine anthology, and was thrilled at the prospect of tackling the theme of futuristic fairy tales. So I chose the Chinese legend of Chang’e, the goddess of the moon. Originally, I wanted to do Red Riding Hood, but apparently that had been chosen several times over. And on a whim, I did a Tarot reading for something unrelated and drew the XVII. Moon card — which in my deck (The Goddess Tarot), was represented by Chang’e. Serendipitous, one might say.

Unicorn
Featured as the back cover in Image Comics’ ELEPHANTMEN #36. The title, “Unicorn”, was derived from the initial mistake from European explorers that rhinocerii were actually unicorns. I kept this in mind as I designed Sahara’s headdress and the overall feel of the unicorn-and-maiden legend…Prints available for purchase here.

London is Burning
"I will show you fear in a handful of dust."
"A woman drew her long black hair out tight And fiddled whisper music on those strings”
Inspired by T.S. Eliot’s “The Waste Land”, with subconscious recollection of John Constantine’s appearance in Sandman.

Death & Dream

I designed their clothing to pay homage to little revelatory symbols about their characters.. Such as how the “Death” card in the Vertigo Tarot was holding a blue rose, and Daniel was often pictured with poppies (symbolic of dreams for its narcotic nature). This also obviously includes the ankh sigils, Daniel’s emerald (as opposed to Morpheus’ ruby), and the ruby sleeve design I always loved from his original costume. Toss in a dash of Visual Kei/Gothic Lolita (especially because I love those cute little EGL tophats) inspiration, and here we are. I’ve got tons of love for the classic 80’s punk look, but I figure they’d want to update their wardrobes a bit since then.
