New material by Michael Tierney:

Cirsova #7

Cirsova #7

This issue includes The Criteria for Admission Into the Galactic Community, my third contribution to the magazine.
The title tells you that this is a science fiction story.

It is available for preoder by clicking this link or the image above.

Like the following Edgar Rice Burroughs' 100 Year Art Chronology, this publication is funded on Kickstarter.
Also like the ERBAC project, it was quickly funded, surpassing its target goal by 500% on the second day!

Coming Soon:

ERBAC Volume 2 Advertising cover

The Edgar Rice Burroughs 100 Year Art Chronology was a huge success on Kickstarter.

Edgar Rice Burroughs' 100 Year Art Chronology -- Kicktraq Mini

You can read all the details here: >https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/600766964/edgar-rice-burroughs-100-year-art-chronology

I've also set up a page filled with teaser images: Edgar Rice Burrough's 100 Year Art Chronlogy

The online magazine Castalia House has run a series of interviews with Cirsova authors, and mine is now online here.

The interviewer, Scott Cole, asked a lot of great questions that covered not just my stories in Cirsova magazine, but also about my Wild Stars comics and books, my experiences as a comic book retailer, and about my Edgar Rice Burroughs 100 Year Art Chronology.


Cirsova #5

The Bears of 1812

I have a new story in Cirsova Magazine #5 (Spring 2017), which is now out for sale!

My story in Cirsova #2 was Shark Fighter, a psychological horror story.
This one is a historical fantasy titled The Bears of 1812.

The Bears of 1812 features native American legend Sacagawea from the Lewis & Clark Expedition, and her involvement in the War of 1812. As I told the editor; "The stuff you'll think I made up is the stuff that really happened." There were many incredible historical events during that time, and Sacagawea's history easily weaved right into the heart of it. 

Michael Tierney -- April 5, 2017


New Video Page!

Follow this link (or the link on the lefthand column site map) to discover film, news clips, and classic advertisements tracing the history of Collector's Edition, The Comic Book Store, and the comics industry in general over the last 4 decades!

You'll find every video on the website, plus many new videos showing major events like the censorship battle with the state legislature, the Death of Superman, and the Bankruptcy of Marvel Comics.

This month's featured blast from the past is She-Hulk's visit to Little Rock back in the Nineties!

Available now:

Cirsova #2
Featuring Michael Tierney's new short story, Shark Fighter,
we currently have a limited supply of each cover of the paperback editions at both stores
.
Shark Fighter is a tale of horror beneath the deep blue sea, see if you can guess the Wild Stars connection. It's tenuous, but it is there.
For more information about this issue, visit this link.

Another Cirsova contributor mentioned my Shark Fighter story during his YouTube GeekGab podcast (visit this link).
Check it out starting at the 25 minute mark and continuing through when the host shouts:
"Stop the bus! A guy's fighting a shark!"
"Stop the bus!"
I'll take that review!

Amazon.com Shark Fighter Reviews (visit this link):

"Well written and there is a powerful emotional punch at its core."

"...not light fare, but .... meaty and gripping adventure"

"a grim sort of redemption"
