Due to various circumstances and contrary to previous announcements, Don will not be appearing at the LA Comic Con.
Don wrote a foreword … and it contains the illustrations Rick did for his “New Adventures of Frankenstein” stories when they were issued in magazine format by Druktenis Publishing. The book looks terrific!
Interview with Don about his writing for the Dino-Riders TV cartoon show in this issue, out now.
This mammoth book just came out and contains all the stories Don wrote for this series.
Don has returned to Las Vegas Talent Agency as its West Coast Representative: https://lasvegastalent.com/
This just up on YouTube, 1st in a series …
A while back Don announced that Sundazed Music would be issuing a vinyl LP of his old rock band the Penny Arkade’s Not the Freeze album, which was produced by “Monkee” Mike Nesmith. The plan has somewhat changed. Sundazed has now announced that this will be a 2-disc set … the first disc comprising our original Not the Freeze album recordings, the second the demos the band recorded before and after Freeze ( including an earlier, shorter version of that number. Pictured below is the LP Sundaze released in 2014, which did not include the demos. FYI, Mike plays maracas on one of the demo cuts.
Don has some stories reprinted in this, out now …
It’s out — and once again Don is a talking head bonus feature.
It’s out! And thanks to Don’s friend C Courtney Joyner, he has a bonus feature — about Tarzan in the comics — all to himself!
Both books out now and available from Amazon…

After showing some of his old amateur movies at Terrificon, a number of people — who wanted to purchase my “I WAS A TEENAGE MOVIE MAKER” DVD on Amazon — told Don that the set is no longer available. Not so! It is the original edition, with Don as the Teenage Werewolf on the cover, that is no longer available. The reissue, showing Don with the camera, and with the same 12 hours of material, is still available, with only the artwork different. Don’t be misled.
