Quicken Forbidden is a sci-fi/fantasy series that follows the adventures of Jax Epoch, a teenage girl who happened upon a gateway to another realm. She inadvertently awakes an unnatural force known as the Quicken, and it begins to destroy all existence in the universe. With the help of an ecclectic supporting cast, and some magic armor she's stolen, Jax sets forth to mend the fabric between reality and fantasy.

I co-created Quicken Forbidden with writer Dave Roman, and together we publish the individual issues through our company Cryptic Press. Issue 12 was nominated for a Harvey Award in 2004 for Best Single Issue or Story, and issue 13 was just recently completed.

The series has so far been collected into two trade paperbacks by AiT/PlanetLar. Volume one, Jax Epoch and the Quicken Forbidden: Borrowed Magic, came out in 2003 and volume two, Jax Epoch and the Quicken Forbidden: Separation Anxiety, came out in 2004. The third volume will be out sometime in the near future.

The comic is currently in development for a feature film by Pipedream Productions.
