Since restarting the strip last December, I've been doing mostly one off gags and have only dipped my toes back into the water of long form storytelling. Well all THAT'S over starting this September with the upcoming crossover with Martin Dunn's ghostly SPECTRO of #iFightGhosts!

So prepare for 3 months of laughs, spooky scares and shameless rip offs starting this September 2nd!!

MEGACON '15: The Beginning and the End

On the weekend of April 10th, 2015, Visitors to the ORLANDO MEGACON will be in for a unique treat!

In Artist's Alley, table GREEN 11, I'll be set up premiering the all new FINAL ISSUE of me epic fantasy adventure series, "The Wellkeeper" along with the remastered FIRST ISSUE of my classic supernatural superhero, "APPARITION"! 

With "The Wellkeeper #12", I bring to a close an amazing adventure following the trials of Zoe Kostopoulos as she learns to protect the life energy of the planet as it's latest Wellkeeper. It's an adventure that premiered AT Megacon back in 2009 and I'm beyond excited to be bringing you the finale, both as individual issues AND in the form of 3 awesome collected editions.


Originally published as a fanzine back in 1994, "APPARITION" is the story of a young man named Cooper Donovan who is shot and left for dead. Resurrected by forces beyond his understanding, he is reborn as the mysterious and ghostly APPARITION. It's a classic super hero adventure, re-scripted, re-lettered and remastered for new readers and the all new FIRST issue will be available in Artist's Alley, table Green 11!

As always, I'll be there with ORIGINAL comics, fantastic art prints AND will be drawing original commissions just for YOU of your favorite characters! Be there!

Apparition Reborn

Created when I was back in high school in 1990, the Apparition was a supernaturally powered hero that I drew for years as a kid. After my time at the Joe Kubert school after High School, I revisited my childhood character, redesigned and rebooted him in a series of new adventures. Originally self published as a fanzine, I drew 6 issues of Apparition. 

Fast forward to 20 or so years later, and I still have ideas for the guy, and so I'm cleaning up, re scripting and relettering the 1994 series. The first remastered adventure will premier at this April's ORLANDO MEGACON with an all new cover. 

Here are some of the new covers and art. Check it out.

MEGACON 2015

"The Wellkeeper" Concludes at Megacon 2015!

For Immediate Release

In 2009, cartoonist Derrick Fish premiered his epic, fantasy/adventure comic book, "The Wellkeeper" at the Orlando Megacon. With stunningly detailed black and white art, rich characters and an engrosing story, "The Wellkeeper" quickly grew a following that attends the annual show every year to see what happens next in the adventure.

"The Wellkeeper" is the story of a young teenage girl named Zoe Kostopolous who inherets a power passed down from mother to daughter across the generations that connects them to the life energy of the planet. This connection allows them to control and manipulate plant life, animals and all natural forces at will. But these powers skipped a generation, so Zoe finds herself with powers she doesn't understand and hunted by dark forces that seek to destroy her for her gifts.

Since that premier in 2009, Derrick Fish has continued to chronicle Zoe's journey from survivor to hero through a carefully planned adventure designed to culminate at the conclusion of 12 issues. And that 12th issue will premier, once again, at the Orlando Megacon this April 10th. 

All 12 issues of the series will be available for readers anxious to find out what happens, along with 3 jam packed trade paperback, containing the entire adventure, so if you'll be in the Orlando area the weekend of April 10th, be sure to make your way to MEGACON's famous Artist's Alley, table Green #11!

For interested readers that can't make it to the show, The entire series can also be ordered as digital downloads and printed books by simply going to theBIG POND COMICS STORE at Indy Planet!
