Amazing Arizona Comic-Con / Chris Moreno on the Radio and More!

Hey Y'all!

Hope you all had a merry Christmas. New Years is this Weekend-- hope you have a merry one of those too. This is just a quick update with some quick news. Look for a longer update sometime early in 2012.

First item!


OK. So I'll be at next weekend's AMAZING ARIZONA COMIC CON. (Details below.) I'll be splitting a table with my mostly-hetero-life-mate Joshua Hale Fialkov (who many of you may know as the writer of DC comics' 2nd most beloved vampire comic, I, Vampire.) My name's not on the website because Josh is the famous one but I'll be there. Come on out and buy some stuff!

Issue 2!!

Ever wanted to know everything ever about Chris Moreno?? Well, here's your chance! This extensive interview covers the everything from Chris Moreno's tender infancy in Oceanside California, to his awkward teen years in New Jersey, all the way to the creation of his brand new comic book, ZOMBIE DICKHEADS (which is still available for purchase here, here and here.) Also, there is music. Give it a listen!

Item #Three!

Wondering what Dos Santos has been up to? Well wonder no more. Smarter Comics has just released his newest project, 60 pages, full color-- an adaptation of Miyamoto Musashi's classic THE BOOK OF 5 RINGS. You buy a copy here-- in print or on whichever digital device you prefer.

Pretty much the whole studio's doing some kind of work for the guys at Smarter Comics, so look to hear plenty more about them in the future. (Hey Look! Chris Moreno did one too!)

And finally...


Tone's been going commission CRAZY as of late. If you're facebook friends with him, you've probably seen some of these beauties. If you're an art collector, or if you've always wanted to become an art collector, I cant recommend these highly enough. And get while the getting's good-- his commission prices are going up in January. Here, have a look...

Hit him up on Facebook or at

OK, that's all for now! Thanks for all your support this year. Have a great new year's and we'll see you all in 2012!

Chris Moreno talks Zombie Dickheads at SDCC 2011

What a fantastic time Garage Art Studios had at this past weekend's San Diego Comic-con!  Some of us, like Mark Dos Santos and yours truly were set up on the con floor, pimping their wares, kissing hands and shaking babies.  Tone Rodriguez, Tony Fleecs, and Lauren Perry were walking the floor shaking their wares, kissing hands, and pimping babies!

I was lucky enough to get a chance to talk Zombie Dickheads with the fine folks at FEARnet at my table in Artist's Alley.  Check it out!

New Moreno Stuff!

What's up, GAS-ers! New Moreno stuff to report.  First up, I illustrated some Celebrity Pokemon Evolutions for the fine folks at  See what happens when our favorite celebs when they undergo massive transformations.  I'd insert some Charlie Sheen catchphrase here, but, honestly, I'm so over that shit already.

Also, I'm providing the art for one of the newest offerings from SmarterComics, a company that's adapting some of the hottest self-help/financial/business books into comics form.  It's called The 80-20 Principle by Richard Koch.  Originally a global bestseller, translated into over 26 languages, it's now making the jump into comics form.  I've always been a big supporter of comics' ability to inform as well as entertain, and this is something I'm very excited to be a part of.  Check out a preview on the smartercomics site: 

And finally, don't forget that the debut comic of my creator-owned Zombie Dickheads is still available in the Zombie Bomb, Vol. 4: Dark Daze anthology from Terminal Press.  If you can catch the Terminal Press guys at a con, they should also have the Zombie Dickheads exclusive convention variant cover for sale!  Remember, Zombie Dickheads are NOT coming to get you-- so you'll have to get off your ass and seek 'em out!  However, more Z-Dickheads news IS coming soon!

That's all from my end.  Until next time... don't put that in your mouth, you don't know where it's been.

February Previews: Moreno & DosSantos 2 for the price of 1!

Hey Ya'll,

Lots happening at the studio. Tone's working on another Bongo book right now (he's got 2 on the way.) Moreno's buried in comics as-usual. I'm doing layouts for the upcoming Fleecs/Fialkov/Oni book and writing the 2nd issue of the upcoming Fleecs/ToneRodriguez book (What!?). Dos Santos is off doing god-knows-what... He lives out in the boonies and I haven't seen him in a little bit. I'm sure whatever it is is great.

Oh speaking of Dos Santos, Did you miss his latest mini-series? The smash hit adaptation of the smash hit film IT! THE TERROR FROM BEYOND SPACE. Did you also miss out on the Chris Moreno drawn MOTEL HELL?

BOOM!! (Actually IDW!!) 2 for 1, Garage-a-maniacs!!

SRP: $19.99
Also If you need a little Tony Fleecs in your life, (a very little) I've got a pinup in this book...
Which is one of my favorite comics of the last couple years. Written by the great Phil Hester and drawn by the also great (and the only artist in comics who might be slower than me) Brook Turner. If you like Preacher... No, if you like comics-- this one's for you.
SRP: $17.99
Here's a look at my pinup if you're interested.

OK, that's all for right now, I've got layouts to draw. But keep an eye out here for peeks at all the new G.A.S. projects.

Thanks for stopping by.
