The COMICS LIST on the left are sample pages from creations appearing either through my own publishing label "Talking Pictures" or those of other Publishing houses. Most of stories are short; a few are longer, including a 300-page graphic novel called "Outworld". Most of my comics are created by my alter-persona "rutz".

Occasionally I get asked why I make comics. I make them because I feel they need to be made for reasons that are evident. Comics communicate in ways that the printed word does not. They make the world of ideas about life and society a richer world.
