Kickstarter/Indiegogo Spotlight: Dulce #2

Every conspiracy ever is real. These guys don’t want you to know that.

Marcus has been working at the secret underground base under Dulce, New Mexico for a short time now.  When he and investigative reporter Maria Garza are pulled into a whole new realm of existence within the base, it’s up to the two of them to figure out an escape.  The latest story blows the base wide open for the reader to explore, with an expanded cast, and a brand new menace!

If that doesn’t sound absolutely like something you need to read, I just don’t know what to say…No, wait. I do. Go check out the 6 page preview on the Kickstarter page and let it change your mind. This is one project that you really need to get your fingers and eyes on. Didn’t get issue #1? So? Get it now alongside issue #2!

Around that time, I became friends with Mike Felumlee, who was previously the drummer for Smoking Popes and at the time was drumming for Alkaline Trio.  More importantly, Mike was owner of Double Zero Records and put out many record releases and promoted some really great bands.

When Mike, and a couple other members of Smoking Popes reunited in 2001 as a Christian band called “Duvall,” I became their webmaster, and as I was sometimes referred to, their “Fifth Beatle...
