Introducing Red Hot!
Red Hot!

Created, Written and Lettered by Mike Luoma

Art by Rhys ap Gwyn

How do you prove you're a hero? Using inherited fire powers, Red Hot is hoping to figure that out as he follows in the footsteps of his father and grandfather - the original and second "Red Hots". It's not going so well... Red Hot stakes out a bank a tip told him is supposed to be robbed. The robber turns out to be the last person Red Hot would expect - and then turns the tables - leaving Red Hot to be blamed for the robbery!

"I was astounded by the lovely artwork by Rhys ap Gwyn and Mike Luoma’s snappy script... Highly recommended." - Glenn Fleming @ Crikey UK

The Adventures
                    of Alibi Jones #1
The Adventures of Alibi Jones #1 - Expanded!

"...brings to mind the lighter works of sci-fi legends such as Henry Kuttner or Ray Bradbury, dealing with the inevitable complications that accompany the meetings of two different cultures."
- Ain't It Cool News.


"There is a lot to like in this issue. Action and intrigue, coupled with fantastic artwork make for a fantastic read.
The Adventures Of Alibi Jones‘ first issue was great...
Mike Luoma has introduced this great character in bold fashion. I’m sure there are many great stories to be told about Alibi’s adventures with the SAIF, and I for one am
excited to see just what they will be."
- Geeks of Doom

Good Samaritan

Good Samaritan: Unto Dust
Created, Written and Lettered by Mike Luoma

Illustrations by Federico Guillen - Color Art by Ken Lateer

1965 - Boston, Massachusetts - Father Bill Sullivan is a Roman Catholic priest with a secret – he wields an awesome power that he believes is given to him by God. The "Power of the Holy Spirit" manifests around him as nebulous tentacles of purple and gold energy and smoke. It allows "Good Samaritan" (as he calls himself) to fly, grab criminals and subject thugs to the experience of their own crimes in his "Confessional". He occasionally renders ultimate judgment by turning perps into dust while proclaiming,
"Remember Man that thou art DUST and unto dust thou shall return!"

In Vatican Assassin, it's 2109 and BC poses as a priest, but he's really an assassin for the New catholic Church!

They say she's about to help the wrong side in the out of control interplanetary War between the west and Islam. BC's next move will change everything! In Vatican Ambassador, the old pope has died.

"Mike Luoma (writes) hard-biting, hot button-pressing tales. Think Frank Miller’s HOLY TERROR without all of that bat-shit annoying Frank Miller-ness and you’ll get the drift of this one. This book successfully mixes real world issues with superheroism, while remaining respectful to the men and women fighting overseas and pointing a finger at atrocities performed around the world. This is a fun book which empowers women while it entertains and inspires hope." - Ain't It Cool News.

Panthea Obscura: Deifornication
By Mike Luoma & Juan Carlos Quattordio







Panthea Obscura
PANTHEA OBSCURA: DEIFORNICATION
The GRAPHIC NOVEL!
The Deep, once Poseidon, gathers the gods together. He hopes to persuade the other gods they should make mankind remember them again! Mother is opposed to letting humans remember. She feels mankind needs more time to evolve on its own.
And she warns them - if they once again interfere actively with mankind, then The Destroyer, their brother Troy, will be free to do so as well!


Whatever happened to the gods of old? For thousands of years humankind worshiped "gods", actual beings of great power that lived among us. Two thousand years ago the "gods" made humankind forget them, forget that the gods actually existed. Forget they walked among us. Forget they were more than mere myths and legends. Why? The gods had their reasons. Some hoped to see humankind evolve in their absence, hoped to see humans become beings of greater power and abilities. Others kept their reasons to themselves. The gods disappeared into myth, legend and folklore. The "gods", forgotten, disappeared into the human population, kept their powers hidden, kept to themselves. Until the day before yesterday...

Holy Sh!t HOLY SH!T: OR... PAT ROBERTSON IS THE ANTI-CHRIST
New Second Edition! Digitally Remastered!

A black and white comic covering the
origins of Chrisitanity and why Robertson is the opposite of what he claims to be... done with humor! I digitally cleaned up the lettering and sweetened the illustrations. The free hand lettering is now easier to read, and the added shading and gray scale backgrounds help the illustrations flow better, creating an overall easier to read book while preserving the feel of the original edition. There's a new introduction, and the Second Edition also includes my original essay that inspired the comic, "God Is Love, Pat Robertson Is The Anti-Christ, And Almost Everything You Know About Christianity Is Wrong", as well as a full bibliography of my source material.
