There is an entire universe in my head.

A wondrous place, where men and women gain amazing powers, don colorful costumes, and set out on fantastic adventures.

My only regret in life is that I will not live long enough to make each idea into a reality.

After a creative block that lasted longer than any I've ever experienced, I'm suddenly free of it, and find myself full of the creative fire that had been absent.

I'm undertaking projects on all fronts.
Creating, Writing, Drawing, Coloring, Lettering, Editing, and Publishing.
Many different hats are required. (Would be much easier if I were a multi-headed hydra!)
Here's a brief glimpse at what's in the works:

The Old:
Completed the script and breakdowns for the second part of a La Gata story that was started in the 1989!
legacyherocomics.deviantart.co…
'Night of The Cat' (part 2) finds the fledgling, feline heroine in trouble, when the villain Crackhead infects her with his drug-touch!, but a special guest-star may be able to save the day. The story ties-in to events in The Young Defenders.

The New:
Working on two new projects for Mythic ('Pyramids on Main Street' and 'Mythic Proportions').
Having loads of fun building his universe bit by bit.

The Borrowed:
For the story 'Mythic Proportions', I will introduce a team that borrows their concept directly from the Fantastic Four and The Doom Patrol.  
I will also be borrowing some ideas from the Public Domain to rework into brand new characters.
Currently working on U.S. Sam (based on the PD character Uncle Sam) and Doc Steele (based on the PD character Doc Strange).

The Blue:
The "blue" of course refers to the ongoing adventures of Blue Bug!

He will continue to appear as the lead story in 'Double Feature Comics', as well as in special solo issues. Specifically, 'Bug Hunt' which bridges the gap between his appearance in 'The Arcadia Anthology' and 'Double Feature Comics'.
Also a cross-company Blue Bug team-up with Pharaoh (from Elektrika Studios) is in the works.

I'd also like to incorporate more elements of Monster, Horror, and Western genres into my superhero universe in the future.

Glad to be back on a positive and productive creative path.

Your Legacy Hero Comics is the stuff that comic books are made of. This is first-rate, classic, 60's Marvel Stan Lee type of retro great Ness wrapped up in a neat little independent package. Great artwork, wonderful characters, and a sense of humor adds up to a true comic book experience. Please keep up the good work! P.S. My favorite superheroes are Mystic and the Blue Bug. The female superheroines aren't that bad either.

Wow! Thanks for the awesome comment, PJT!

It pleases me to know that the feeling and fun that I've set out to evoke, within my little corner of the comic book universe, comes across (and resonates) with readers.
There's definitely more of it to come!

Thanks again for taking the time to comment.
It really made my day!

Artists! There's a good chance we're going to lose the rights to our work unless we stop legislation that's being proposed to congress. This has the potential to infect every country in the world. We need your help to stop this as soon as possible! Brad Holland is an expert in this new legislation and explains why artists worldwide will suffer if our current copyright law is replaced by the new proposals.
