Bio: Tommy Kovac is the writer/illustrator of Autumn, Skelebunnies and Stitch, all published by Slave Labor Graphics Inc. Kovac is currently writing Wonderland, published by Slave Labor in cooperation with Disney and illustrated by Sonny Liew.
Wonderland is a full color comic book series continuation of the Disney animated classic, Alice In Wonderland. Did you ever wonder what happened after Alice left Wonderland? This new series will follow the adventures of the White Rabbit and his housemaid, Mary Ann, as things get chaotic in the wake of the “Alice monster’s” infamous visit. There’s big trouble for the Queen of Hearts, including treason, treacle, and the Jabberwock! The first issue will be released in May of 2006.
In Autumn, a mysterious, ageless girl with wild powers comes to an isolated village surrounded by the demon-choked Black Wood. Autumn is a tale of love, vengeance, and redemption, stemming from a volatile love triangle. There are 4 issues currently available, and #5 is coming soon.
In case you missed it, Stitch is the story of a boy who has been turned into a rag doll by a witch, and kept prisoner in an old house full of magical dolls and toys, some of them rather nasty and mean. Stitch develops a furious crush on his rag doll cousin, Simon, but will the demonic forces in the old house keep them apart?
The Skelebunnies are forest demons with sass to spare. They have their own flying zombie pony, the Pretty Pretty Pony Macabre, AND their very own assistants/slaves, the Devil Woobies. Watch as they frustrate and titillate the boy-crazy Satan! Experience discomfort from watching their vile and inappropriate behavior! There are also 2 Skelebunnies T-shirt designs available from Slave Labor Graphics, get them while they're hot!
Last but not least, Tommy co-authors the independent 'zine, Library Bonnet, which is jam-packed with fascinating and strange visuals, personal essays, poetry, censorship rants, and even games involving naked mole-rats and gorilla assholes. #7 is fresh out of the oven!
