for those of you familiar with JT's writing from the work we did together on Mindfield, it might interest you to know that he's written a novel that you might like to check out.  here's  a little bit about it from JT himself to get your interest peeked.

"I've lost my marbles."  When a fourteen year-old girl named Angie hears these simple words uttered from her aging grandfather's lips, she has no idea that it will send her on a journey into a hidden world of magic born from childhood imagination - one that bonds each and every one of us to a special talisman with wondrous powers.  Angie forgot all about this world as life clouded her mind with the mundane, the ordinary, and the tragic - but it's a world she must enter once again because her grandfather is telling the truth. He really did lose his marbles, and now it's up to Angie to find them.

At its core, The Lost Spark is an adventurous tale of fantasy and wonder harkening to such works as Peter Pan and the Wizard of Oz.  It is a story that celebrates the magic of childhood imagination that must be cherished, especially in the face of the bleak reality we often find ourselves in each and every day.  Most have lost that connection with the magic inside of them.  The only question now is whether that special power will be found again or remain lost forever.

if you're interested its available for Pre-Order on Amazon.

just a quick update. i just found out the new project, MINDFIELD just got a press release up on Newsarama. im sure its old hat for a lot of people, but for me this is all still pretty new and exciting/nerve racking.  but anyways, if you get the chance check it out at

www.newsarama.com/comics/Aspen…
i havent been keeping up with updates like i should.  on the one hand its good cause ive been busy with more work on the other...i havent posted anything new in quite some time.  recently, the 80 page giant issue of batman that i did a 10 page story in before i started my gig at aspen has come out.  that being said i figured i would post up a couple of the pages from that story. if you want to see the whole thing you can either pick up the book, or check out my website, which i'll be updating in the next couple of days.  in terms of the Mindfield work, ive recently finished up the first issue.  however the book itself isnt due out for a while just yet but as soon as i get an ok from the guys at aspen i'll go ahead and post up some of the other promo stuff i've done for it as well as anything else they give me an ok to help push the book before it comes out.  thanks for baring with me though.
well ladies and gents here is a brand new project that i'll be working on with the guys at Aspen Comics.  it's a brand new property written and conceived by J.T. Krul.  it's a dark, gritty, psychological story with so much depth and many layers that i can only hope to bring justice to the world and characters that JT has created.  it promises to be a truly unique story that i am only to happy to be able to work on and i can't wait to get into drawing the story.

to hear what JT has to say about his new project check out his interview on comics continuum at

the second portion of the gotham gazette book that i worked on will be out tomorrow the 27th.  its another set of five pages and at this point its almost been so long since i did them i'm a little iffy about putting them up.  i will though. However i think ill take Sean's advice and put up some of the other stuff ive been working on in the coming weeks; (and hope the big wigs at DC dont get too angry with me.)  so look for that.  as for the gazette stuff look for it tomorrow here, at the comic store or as always on my web site...  www.alexkonat.com
here it is folks, the first narrative stuff that i'll have published. it's only a five page stint in this issue but it's a start. the issue goes on sale March 4th in comic stores near you. its called;
Gotham Gazette: Batman Dead?
once it comes out i'll be sure to post up my pencils, so check back soon for those.
