Traumatized as a young boy by the death of his father in a freak hair-cutting accident, Larry Powell is now too traumatized to cut his hair, even if it means freeing himself from the clutches of his malicious Hairbat.

So I think I'm hot stuff now, I guess.  Got a fancy-shmancy author website all set up and stuff (with another hungry blog to feed).  Got a new novel on the way, too.  Zombies.  Again.  Yep.  So fancy.  So shmancy.  Who the hell do I think I am?  Would it matter if I told you that I've always wanted to be a published author?  I mean, that's kinda cool, right?

So, anyway, that's what's been going on, me writing about living-challenged cadavers even though Larry is still locked up in an asylum.

(Awkward pause.)


Well, thanks for stopping by!

Hairbat is now available for purchase online!  I'm serious!  The 4-issue mini-series, Family Reunion.  Come on, guys, click this link to buy comics that have been sitting in sealed boxes in my garage!  Isn't that enticing?  I mean, everyone's got issues--especially me!  Back issues!

Okay, enough stalling (and bad puns).

This link ain't gonna click itself!

What if zombies were sentient? 

What if they lived among us? 

What if you had a choice to become one?

Find out why death is only the beginning. 

POSTHUMOUS is now available for NOOK and Kindle!  Huzzah!  Click over to either link to read the first few chapters.  Double huzzah!

Even cooler--a trade paperback edition will be available for purchase online in about 2 weeks. 

Triple huzzah with special sauce! 


July 2013

Another quick update.  My zombie novel, POSTHUMOUS, is now available as an ebook.  Huzzah!  A paperback edition is in the works.  I expect to have the proof in a few days.  Once all editions of the novel (NOOK, Kindle, iBooks, print) are available, the big promotional push happens.  Official cover reveal coming soon.  (The official publication date is 7/31.)  Until then, lots of behind-the-scenes updates on Goodreads and whatnot).

And then, up next, the HAIRBAT graphic novel.  More on THAT later!

Death is only the beginning.

I want my Hairbat!

Whew!  So many taglines, so little time!

More details here about this auspicious occasion.  


March 2013

Just a quick update.  For those keeping track (and by that I mean NO ONE), this year marks the 20th anniversary of Hairbat's debut.  Specifically, October 1993.  I was just a wee lad with a fast metabolism and a full head of hair.  And now--piffle. 

Still, I do intend on marking this auspicious milestone with issue #8.  Yes.  Seriously.  There's a completed script and I intend to make this happen.  I also want to collect the first four issues and add a lot of extra content from sketchbooks and promotional materials.  It will be awesome--I promise.

Please, stay tuned for script excerpts and sketches.

In the meantime, a general update.

Melancholy Greetings is now available at the brand-new Barnes & Noble on 86th and Lexington in New York City.  That brings the total store count to twenty locations across the country! 

Wow, no wonder I'm always so damn tired!

You can view additional locations here.

You can view a sampling of these so-called "blank cards for empty lives" here.

(Thanks to Evan Goldstein for the great photo!)

Hello everyone!  I FINALLY got around to fixing what illed my poor Hairbat domain.  And now, finally, a quick update to the site.

Check out what's new in my new Hairblog post, STATE OF THE UNION. 

And now that I'm back in the saddle, hopefully I can start updating a little bit more regularly.  (Would you settle for maybe?)

Some movies are destined to be terrible.  Case in point: the cinematic bait and switch that was foisted on fans, Indiana Jones and The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.

Yeah, I know I'm late to the party, but I only just caught this dung heap of a film on DVD. Read my thoughts anyway on a legacy gone terribly wrong in WHIP REPLACEMENT (or, Why I Hated "Indy 4").

Hey Hairbat fans--guess what the wind blew in! No, it's not more snow (though there's plenty of THAT in the air!) No, it's honest-to-god new content! And some of it may actually have something to do with Hairbat.

Just not in a feel-good sort of way.  Check out my newest post, FIRST THINGS FIRST, to see what I mean.
