Updates and More!

I hope this is finding you all well. It has been a while since I have updated my site so I have a few things to share with you!

First, my books were picked up by Rocket Ink Studios and I'm thrilled to be a part of the family. You can get physical and digital copies of my work through them at this time.

Second, I have limited physical copies of the original printings of some of my work. If you are interested in obtaining a copy of those, email me at stadeusiak@yahoo.com while supplies last.

Third, Aeonian 3 was supposed to launch in March on Kickstarter, but due to COVID-19 we had to push the book release back. It will be coming to Kickstarter on June 1st and you can get physical and digital copies of Aeonian 1-3, as well as some other cool tier rewards. I will update the site with the link to the Kickstarter when it goes live.

Lastly, conventions have been put on hold this year and it has been very bittersweet. I miss seeing my friends and talking comics, but we all have to do what is right and be safe in these difficult times. I have been doing virtual conventions as well as continuing to podcast with several different shows, which I will link at the end of this post. I am still working as best I can to get more stories to you and I hope that everyone is doing well. We will be together soon!

Below are links to the podcasts/radio shows I'm currently hosting or co-hosting. There is a lot of content to get you through shelter in place, so follow the links and enjoy!

The Way Station - I host this podcast and speak with indie creators from around the world about their craft and projects.

Another Page Turner - Myself and Tom Hutchison host this industry focused podcast, helping creators old and new with informational shows discussing everything from cons to Kickstarter, publishing and promotion.

Geek Gasm - an online radio show on Indie Volt radio, hosted by Lola and co-hosted by me, where we talk to people in the industry and discuss everything from projects, media, and the state of comics.

Shot of History - the most fun you will have learning about history! A revolving group of historians join myself and Big Dev as we explore history and fine spirits. If you are looking to learn and laugh, join us here!


Capital City Comic Con and Aeonian 2 News

Capital City Comic Con is upon us! This is my first year attending this convention and I am excited to join the ranks with my fellow artists. It is Saturday only at the Breslin Center in Lansing so come on down and join us. I will also be co hosting a panel on self-publishing at 3pm.

In comic news, Aeonian 2 was over 200% funded on Kickstarter and I want to thank each and every one of you for your support. It has been sent to the printer and rewards will be mailed out as soon as I receive the order.

Aeonian 3 has been put into production and we should be ready to bring it to Kickstarter for preorder in January. I will post an update on my socials when we get an official date.

My last convention of the year will be Grand Rapids Comic Con November 8th-10th. I have attended this convention but never as a guest, so I am looking forward to seeing it from the artists perspective. I am hoping to have a few small paintings at this convention as well, that pair with my horror series Aeonian. If you have any requests for themes, let me know!

The year is moving by so fast! I hope everyone has a safe and happy Falloween :)

The Kickstarter Was A Huge Success!

I want to thank everyone for their support, whether it was emotional, sharing the project, or backing the project. You are all amazing, and I appreciate every one of you!

As soon as all funds are in we will begin sending the backer surveys out, and then we can fulfill the orders. It is going to be chaos, but sometimes chaos is a good thing!

Aeonian #2 is written and is now with my editor. Because of all of you, I am able to start production in March. I am thrilled to be able to bring this series to you, and will have another pre-order when issue 2 is ready to come out later this year.

Have a great day, and thank you for supporting indie comics!

Aeonian #1 is LIVE on Kickstarter!

We are live on Kickstarter with my newest series, Aeonian.

Aeonian is an ongoing series. This campaign is for the first issue, which follows a family who has had a taste of living an extended life, but are looking to solidify their grasp on living forever. Issue one follows the family as they struggle with outside sources, and each other, to reach their goal.

 Who is their "guest", and what secrets does he hold? Blending mythology, horror, and sci-fi, this arc will leave you asking yourself, how far would you go to obtain eternal life?

The Last Heist will be published through Vulture Comics

  The Last Heist


Vulture Comics has graciously picked up The Last Heist as one of their launch titles! They will be launching a Kickstarter in February with several other amazing indie titles to share with everyone. I am truly honored to be a part of this team, and look forward to having The Last Heist in such good company!

If you want to pick up a copy of the first print run, I still have a few left! Click here to purchase, or join us in February for the launch of Vulture Comics!
