A #ComicBook #Artist #Illustrator and #Marine Friend in Need: Clifford Van Meter

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 24, 2017 by DaveandDeniseDorman

Dear Friends,

It’s time to rally the troops and help a fallen soldier and comic book artist friend of mine. I want to make you aware of Clifford Van Meter, a Marine friend in Michigan, who is also a comic book artist/writer and non-fiction writer, as well as a galleried wildlife artist. Clifford is losing his home and, as of Friday, has just lost his job due to his medical condition(s). Like me, he also suffers from Type II Diabetes. Clifford’s write-up below was posted before he lost his job. Denise is scrambling to help him find social services and VA help, but in the meantime, please consider giving any amount — even the smallest amount to you would mean the world to him — at this page:

Here is Clifford Van Meter’s story: 

I’ve been an artist and illustrator for more than 30 years now. I’ve worked extensively on games like Battle-Tech, and GURPS, as well as a number of books and comics. I worked as a writer, artist, and production manager at Valiant comics in the ’90s, and as an artist and writer with Milestone and DC. I’ve also been a galleried wildlife artist. I have samples up on my Deviant Art Page —

These days, I live on what I make as a data technician, I was demoted from marketing manager and lost about 1/4 of my income there, I also do a few private sales and commissions. We live pretty simply, but right at the level of what I make. My wife works a factory job and we live in the house her grandfather built… the house she grew up in. The loss of our home is now inevitable.

Like many of you, I don’t have a contingency fund. Frankly, I need help, as soon as possible. Every penny will go toward keeping the bills paid and keeping my insurance in case I get laid off. Prescriptions have become an issue as well. If I lose my prescriptions I’ll be dead in a month.

So…I will be doing whatever I can to help my friend Clifford, and I hope you can help him, too.

My next major show will be IlluxCon in Reading, PA in October. I hope to see you there.

Thanks for reading!


Please Join Me in the #HurricaneHarveyRelief Fundraiser at Dark Delicacies Tonight

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on September 5, 2017 by DaveandDeniseDorman

Dear Friends,

The horror community has once again stepped up in a big way, and Dark Delicacies in Burbank is working with singer/songwriter Kasey Lansdale on tonight’s fundraiser for Hurricane Harvey survivors. Please consider bidding on my long out-of-print STAR WARS: THE ART OF DAVE DORMAN book, with a hand-painted Boba Fett inside the title page of the book. The book is also autographed by me. Images taken from my drawing table, so forgive the bent nature of the photos:

Dave Dorman hand-painted Boba Fett on the title page inside of the book.


Also participating in the fundraiser are NY Times bestselling authors Joe R. Lansdale, Game of Thrones creator/author George R.R. Martin and many more. Whatever your interest, you’ll find it in tonight’s auction, which Kasey is moderating on her Facebook Page via Facebook Live. Here are the important links for you:

Be here at 7 PM California time tonight for Kasey’s Facebook Live auction!

Please Support My Kickstarter Campaign for My WASTED LANDS Creator-Owned Series

Posted in Uncategorized on August 4, 2017 by DaveandDeniseDorman

Dear Friends,

In 2001, I released RAIL: BROKEN THINGS, A Tale of the Wasted Lands through Image Comics. That sold 20,000 copies. Since that time, I waited until I owned my intellectual property outright again to create new content. So here I am. My new Kickstarter Campaign is launching my take on pulp fiction magazines in the 2000s with AMAZING TALES OF THE WASTED LANDS. Each issue will feel like it’s lifted straight out of the dystopian Western world I’ve created…a world filled with quirky, memorable characters, adrenaline-pumping action, adventure, drama, romance, violence, horror and fantasy. Please consider supporting my quest and sharing my Kickstarter campaign with those you know who would enjoy continuing the tradition of great westerns (with a little sci-fi, fantasy and horror mixed in). Here’s the link:

That Controversial Dave Dorman SAGA Blog? Yeah…That Was Actually Written By ME. Not Dave.

Posted in Uncategorized on June 9, 2017 by DaveandDeniseDorman

Since she insists on clarifying this point, I’m just the messenger…

ComicBookWife: My Crazy Comic-Con Life

I get the alerts whenever Dave’s name is mentioned online, so when I read this morning that some woman blogger in Ireland wanted to “punch Dave Dorman in the face” for his blog on that breastfeeding SAGA cover, that was my final tipping point. So unbeknownst to Dave, I’m giving him an early Father’s Day gift. I’m posting this blog to end Dave falling on the sword for me, even one moment longer. For those of a certain age who remember that broken vase confessional on The Brady Bunch:

“Mom? Dad? It was me. I broke the vase.”

Yes. I wrote that controversial SAGA blog of Dave’s. And Dave, being the gentleman that he is, chastised me privately, but has forever remained silent about it publicly, despite the unfair ridicule and scrutiny he’s taken for it. He took the knives to his back from the all-too-quick-to-eats-its-own-young comic book industry to protect…

As always, autographs are always free, so come see me, get your stuff signed, and if you feel like it, buy some STAR WARS art from me and the other amazing artists you will see at this event–Steve Palenica, James Tampa, Jamie Snell & Mikey Babinski! And check out my friend Cris Macht, who has done an amazing job with his documentaries establishing HOW & WHY STAR WARS matters to the fandom. Authors John Jackson Miller and Keith Ryan Kappel will be with us, too! And let’s not forget, my beloved 501st, the world’s largest COSPLAY organization–of which I’m an honorary member–that is also a fundraiser for the Make a Wish Foundation. Joining me will be blogger, WriteBrain Media’s very own Denise McDonald Dorman!
