Hello friends and Geek fans! Meredith Loughran and Nita Lanning curate the comic books and graphic novel projects that catch their RAGIN’ attention.
The 13th Labor
A story of gods, ghosts and an intergalactic tournament of champions.
The story of Hercules and his 12 Labors is one most casual fans of mythology are familiar with. What is less familiar to most is the story of his greatest labor. A labor that rips Hercules thousands of years into the future, where his bloodline is at its end and the fate of Earth lies in the hands of his final descendant.
Set against the backdrop of an intergalactic Tournament of Champions, The 13th Labor is the story of a demi-god seeking forgiveness for his past and a sixteen year old girl, who in order to save her home, must find a solace of her own.
So join Hercules, Pippa and Hermes and the rest of The 13th Labor creative team on this crazy adventure and help us bring it to life!

RISING TIDES: Tails of the Deep
I’ve enjoyed creating Merfolk art over the past few years. This year, I’m jumping on the MerMay bandwagon! I’ve created a list for my drawing challenge and I am very excited to bring my creations to life. The book will feature both mermaids, mermen and other sea creatures. I’m hoping to draw a diverse cast of characters too! I’ve completed a handful of drawing challenges this year and hope to wow your socks off.
This is a compendium of original illustrations and scenes that I created for the MerMay 2021 challenge. In this compilation you will find original scenes, merfolk species, themes and more.
All the art was made with traditional media and different tools; markers, watercolors, multi liners, and color pencils and may have a few digital enhancements.
