Calamity Cash Fan Appreciation Week 4: Dave Baker

Dave Baker is like a Swiss Army Knife of creativity. Holding a firm philosophy of "get out there and do," he recently moved to Los Angeles, where the already uber-talented writer and illustrator started getting involved in show business, living what I at least believe to be the dream - words for money. Oh, and comics, and movies, and extras and actors, and celebrities too. I other words, this is one dude who stays busy.

Yet despite that, he's also crazy supportive of his fellow creative types, bending over backwards to buy my book when Paypal momentarily rebelled against us, and offering yours truly a couch in which to sleep on when I [assumedly, eventually] head west myself. He's looked at some of my rougher work, and I've seen some stuff of his that boasts a truly unique voice, and once it sees print is going to wow a lot of folks.

And nobody tell him this, but he's one of my favorite comic artists too.


Having our comic in Dave's hands means a great deal to me. And like with a lot of the people who have sent me pictures with the book, it's nice to feel like there's a whole group of us at this, chasing these dreams. Somehow, all of it doesn't feel quite so impossible knowing we're all looking out.

You can keep up with what Dave's doing on his Facebook fan page, and his Twitter handle is @xDaveBakerx. As you can imagine with all that's on his plate, he stays pretty busy, so updates are sparse, but when they happen, they are most definitely worth your time.

Order your copy of "Calamity Cash & the Town with No Name" via the button on the sidebar, or here:


"Calamity Cash & The Town with No Name" (25 pages, $3.50, plus shipping): The mother/daughter vigilante team of Tana and Cal Cash are on the run from an Afro-rocking, Kung-Fu assassin, and have been forced to make their last stand in a nameless desert town hiding an unbelievable secret - every last citizen is in the Witness Protection program! Out of gas, low on ammo, and with their backs against the wall, Calamity and Mama Cash become the town's unlikely protectors, but with friends so quickly becoming enemies, and old enemies becoming friends, is the whole place doomed to burn? And will our heroines be the ones to light the first match? A modern-day action/adventure western with words by Randall Nichols, and art by Justin Cornell.
