  • The Living Finger

    When well-meaning Jason discovers a disembodied finger that appears to "alive," it quickly becomes the sole focus of his life. He names the digit "Wendy," learns to communicate with it via "tap code," and discovers that the one thing Wendy wants more than anything else is a living, breathing human body to attach to. But, as soon as Jason helps Wendy secure an unwitting "host," problems arise. Soon, Jason has collected a bathtub full of corpses, a rightly suspicious sister, and a best friend hellbent on selling Wendy to the highest bidder. Even worse, Jason is beginning to realize that he may have acted a bit rashly, especially with Wendy proudly displaying an unhealthy fascination with knives. Is there any way for Jason to set things right without becoming another casualty? Read More

  • Bruce Lee: The Dragon Rises

    Bruce Lee never died. And he hasn't aged. But, he has no idea who he is, what's happened in the world in the past 40+ years, or why so many "thugs" want a piece of him. With the help of a fly BFF from the '70s – Joe Toomey, P.I. – and a pair of precocious Teens, Bruce will piece together a mystery more insidious than ever imagined, and find himself forced to do battle with both an enigmatic Villain and his very own conscience. In other words, the Dragon rises... and "walks on" once more! Read More

  • Fake Empire

    Fairies have always existed in secret, without a kingdom of their own, living side-by-side with humankind. But when one of his own children is murdered, King Oberon asks his surviving daughters - newly minted NYPD detective Charli and wingless black sheep Lucy - to find her killer amidst the citizenry of New York. As Charli and Lucy delve deeper into the mystery, they begin to discover the extraordinary measures their father has taken - some clever, some desperate - to keep an entire people hidden in an increasingly treacherous world. For Charlie and Lucy, unmasking their sister's executioner will mean confronting their own blood-drenched legacy. Read More

  • Dead Man's Party

    In the assassin trade, a Dead Man's Party is part Viking funeral, part Irish wake, a twisted way for your murderous peers to either honor your memory or settle a score. Each of the five professional killers who participate have 30 days to collect the bounty on your head, adding your distinguished name to his or her resume. And the "contract" is wholly irrevocable. For the world's most feared executioner - known only as Ghost - arranging such a Party for himself is a last resort, a way to go out on his own terms and at the top of his game. Read More

Garth Matthams

Writer: The Living Finger

Garth Matthams is a lot like you. He’s a person, like you. He breathes and eats and sleeps, like you. He enjoys comics, like you. And like you, he grew up with dreams. The problem with dreams, however, is that life tends to treat them like a bully treats sand castles: it knocks them down.

So yes, he had dreams. And like many people, life got in the way.

Then one day he woke up and realized it was time to dust off those dreams and do something about them. So he wrote, THE LIVING FINGER – his first (and hopefully not last) foray into comics.

Garth lives in Nanaimo, B.C., with his beautiful, supportive, hypochondriac wife, and their two skittish rabbits. Read more
