There was a time when the DEATH WALKS THE STREETS (DWTS) comic books were available for free on a few major platforms prior to being reissued at digital cover price. Ten years into the DWTS journey, there's still new friends discovering the DWTS world for the very first time, and in the five years since the first comic was published, new readers have been enjoying and experiencing our stories on a weekly basis. For Halloween 2014, we're inviting YOU to experience DEATH WALKS THE STREETS through a FREE DOWNLOAD of DWTS #1 - the Halloween issue!

25505 344760059439 6011189 nNow through November 7, 2014, readers can download a FREE PDF of the first issue (it's around 60MB). If you dig it and would like to add it and others to your collection, they're available on Amazon. Upon the conclusion of November 7, the download link will self-destruct.

As I've mentioned before, while DEATH WALKS THE STREETS was once plagued with setbacks throughout it's run, it's never been dead - and it manages to spring to life every few months - an oddity that's never stopped, and has only increased of late.


While there is no ETA, no release dates to reveal, nothing currently being worked on, new comics and graphic novels will one day arrive. The next chapter already exists in pencil form, just awaiting colors and lettering before being set free into the world. 

Beyond that, there are all of those comic scripts and screenplays still sitting around - not collecting dust, but safely tucked away in a crypt awaiting the right moment... the right recipe that will help to put them out there properly so that we can finally share the entire story. And, if "31 Days" wasn't enough to quench your thirst, there will be a permanent DWTS section added to this very website in the near future, a full archive of materials from the beginning of the project until the present.


Stay tuned...
