Monster of the Week (ongoing)
I recap every episode of The X-Files in twelve-panel form. Because it's fun, that's why.

Smithson (on hiatus)
Smithson College has a campus superhero, an a capella group that dabbles in black magic, the Nonconformist Chair Movement, and a pretty solid art department. Weekly comic written by me and drawn by Brian Moore, with additional art by Roger Langridge. Currently on hiatus, but there's a big archive--go read!
