My name is Stephen Nelson. I have some stories to tell, and some great and talented friends to help me tell them. If you like a strange story, if you enjoy a twisted tale, sit down, stay a while, and listen! Someday soon, we hope to transform our stories into comics which you may purchase, so as to bear happily home to you demented domiciles.

You might not want to let Mom see them, though.

Projects my friends and I are currently conspiring on include my macabre fantasy adventure/comedy Rat's Tooth, Rita Gorgoni's awesome Dark Fantasy tale, Iron Head, and The Children of Pollut Un Roone, a dark fantasy tale written by myself, illustrated by Stefano Cardoselli, and set in the incredible fantasy world of Brom Kah, created by Garrett Adderly!

So please come in, look around, and we hope you enjoy our Stories! Unpleasant Dreams!

Thanks go out to lots of folks, including Alex Johns, who designed the logo you see above for me!

The Children of Pollot Un Roone Concept Art Project: Stefano Cardoselli and Laura Ruggeri!

The Children of Pollut Un Roone was an idea I was kicking around for my own amusement, not taking particularly seriously, but I've received enough positive feedback on the raw plot and concept artwork, that I have decided that I must take a more careful look at trying to build a book around it... Inspector Vesperro is a native of Garrett Adderly's Brom Kah universe. I loved the rough ideas he had for the character and the gorgeous artwork he had built up around the concept of Vesperro, and wanted to try a Vesperro short story. The idea I originally had was for a very brief tale, involving Vesperro's discovery of a body hidden under the floorboards of an old house...(this scene still appears in the Children narrative), but the story took on something of a life of it's own, and now is quite long and complex...anyway...Stefano helped me come up with some rough ideas for what I wanted, and I'm very pleased with the results. We also have the good fortune to have Laura Ruggeri on hand to lay down the colors on these pages...I think Stefano and Laura both really get what I was thinking about trying to do with this story...Stefano's work deftly balances a tounge-in-cheek sense of humour with my story's sorrowful undertones in a way that prevents an essentially grim script from tipping over into hyper-tragic, melodramatic Goth-o-rama. Laura's quirky blending of dark shadows and bright, cheery colors nicely complements Stef's interpretation of my script...the seed has sprouted and is taking root....What the sprout will become yet remains to be seen...
