Today is World AIDS Day!
I developed and wrote this book 12 years ago to reduce the stigma of HIV. It is one of my proudest moments in all of my comic book career. It continues to make a difference with newly infected people as well as families affected with it. With World AIDS day today it would make a good read for anyone. (digitally on iTunes, Nook, Kindle, ComiXology and more) It really is a little I put my whole life and self into.

I wrote the book because I wanted to make a difference in the HIV world and most of the movies and books were about people dying. I wanted to tell it from the other side, the person that manages it from a living perspective. It’s not touchy-feely. It’s basically raw emotion. Plus, it has a lot of cool monsters in it.
I was fortunate to bring this book and talk about it to places like YALE University and a bunch of high schools. The book also won a couple awards.
The cover by by Keu K Cha (X-Men) and Sean Murphy (Batman: White Knight) is described as, after learning that he has contracted the HIV virus, attorney Zak Raven leaves his practice behind to set forth on a mission of relaxation-– until his peaceful trip goes wildly astray, leaving Zak shipwrecked on what he thinks is a deserted island with only the words in his own journal to keep him company. Unknown to Zak, four miles below the surface secretly hides a government experimentation center where scientists are playing God by trying to artificially evolve a human based species that can survive evacuation missions in deep space. Within 900 years, earth will be dealt a deathblow by a mountain-size asteroid. However, so far they have only achieved creating living abominations. Zak and these creatures are on a collision course, and he must rise to the challenge!
Enjoy the read!
