Die Toten: Isar Palace

Some of you may have already gotten one of the small run of advance copies I had with me at Comicfestival München & Comic Con Germany in June, but for everybody else, my new book "Die Toten: Isar Palace" is officially coming out this week! After working on this for almost five years, I'm so happy people are finally getting a chance to read it.

I already got my author's copies:


The book is a new installment in the award-winning German zombie comic series "Die Toten". Unlike previous books in the series, mine contains just one standalone story and doesn't require you to know any of the others.

For more information, check out the interview I gave for Zwerchfell Verlag's website. Here are some sample pages:


You can get the book starting tomorrow for just 12€ at any German comic shop or book store (please ask them to order it for you if they don't have it), or at KWIMBI, Hummelcomic, and Amazon.de. I'd much rather you support your local comic shop or independent online retailers like Kwimbi than the big A, though.

If you want a signed copy, you can get that directly from me. Just send me an e-mail!

VIDEODROME Poster

For an upcoming special screening presented by my publisher Zwerchfell, I was asked to illustrate a poster for one of my favorite movies of all time, David Cronenberg's VIDEODROME.

I made two versions of the poster - one for the event at Harmonie & Cinema in Frankfurt on October 09, 2019, and a "neutral" version just for me.




You can buy a print of the first version at the event. The proceeds go to Sea-Watch!

Here's just the ink drawing:


And just the drawing of Debbie Harry from the tv screen:

Paluten Freedom: Der Golemkönig

Earlier this year, I got to work on a pretty cool comic based on the Minecraft characters by popular German YouTuber Paluten. The story is by Haiko Hörnig, line art by Irina Zinner, and colors by Eve Jay (flats) and myself (finishes). It was a lot of fun and the book turned out nicely and is already a best-seller! You can order it here.

Check it out if a funny all-ages fantasy adventure sounds like something you'd enjoy!

I already signed a few books for some folks:

The new JAZAM!

For 13 years now, my co-editors and I have been putting out the German indie comics anthology JAZAM!, but this year we thought we'd try something different: rather than assembling stories from dozens of different artists, we picked just one.

David Füleki has continuously contributed awesome short comics to JAZAM! for many years now, and we thought it would be great if people could read all of them in one place. He also liked this idea, and so he reworked and expanded them, drew new introduction comics for most of them, and added a few fun stories that were previously unpublished or published in other anthologies.

I myself got to color one of my favorite comics of his, "Beppo Biber".

Here's the cool cover for "The Best (and Worst) of David Füleki":


And a page from "Beppo Biber" with my colors:


See more pages at MyComics.de!

You can order the book at Kwimbi  |  Amazon.de  |  Hummelcomic  |  Comic Combo

Trek & Gold season 2

It's already been a few weeks since we finished the second season of our podcast "Trek & Gold", but I just realized that I never posted anything about it on this blog.

Just like during the first season, Eve Jay and I did in-depth podcast recaps for every episode of the second season of Star Trek: Discovery. You can check those out on SoundCloud, Apple Podcasts, or most other places where you can subscribe to podcasts. For every one of those podcast episodes, I also drew a cover illustration. Here are some of my favorites:

Radio Nukular #91

I was asked to do a new Radio Nukular cover for their podcast about the movies of Steven Spielberg:


Here's a look at my rough sketch (I admit I traced some elements like the truck from photos - I'm no good at drawing cars):

2019, Fuck Yeah! Calendar Illustration

Once again, I was asked to participate in Schlogger's new "Fuck Yeah!" calendar, which every year collects 52 illustrations from many of Germany's most interesting young cartoonists and illustrators.

For my week in mid-December I chose to do something with the two main characters from my upcoming comic for German zombie comics anthology "Die Toten". Here it is:


And here's just the line art:
