It's been in the works for 4-1/2 years and I completed it this summer. I've been trying to scare up a publishing deal but I couldn't stand to let another Halloween go by without letting folks read it!
It tells the story of Terry Malloy, a ten-year-old at St. Egregius the Stricter Catholic School, who is convinced that his teacher is a vampire and wants to drink his blood. Even his best friends Steven and Kenny think he's insane.
SMD began as a Flash animation that I created in 2001. It gained an internet following and was selected for the 2004 San Diego Comic Con's Independent Film Festival. That exposure gave me the impetus for developing the graphic novel.
There will be printed books for sale later in the month and I'll let you know when they're available, but selling books isn't really the point. I just thought it would be cruel to post the pages without offering books too!
So I lied! I had every intention of sticking to my word and taking these pages down after Halloween...but I got a ton of traffic from France for some reason (two French ESL websites were responsible for more hits than all other sources combined), and one of the websites that has a link to it asked if I could please leave it up longer. How could I say no?
So the entire story will be up for awhile longer, and I'm also adding the pages to Facebook photos page!

Mad congratz on your continued success.
Not quite my cup of tea... (God, I'm beginning to detest any mention of tea lately. American politics has reached a new low...), but I can certainly appreciate the amount of work and talent it takes to accomplish what you have.
Keep at it and I can see some major publishing deals in your future. </miss Cleo>

Dude, go for it, Go for broke, make a Facebook page for the series, do a couple of HIGH DEF backgrounds with 3D effects on photoshop, put discussions, and take off the ground with that project, and add the facebook link to the series
