The Maine State of Mind returns with Comic Book Creator Joseph Schmalke. The storyteller is one of the minds behind Phantom Starkiller, The Electric BlackMurder Hobo, We Don’t Kill Spiders, and many more.

Schmalke is not only the writer for a number of comics, but also has been the illustrator. A talented man, that’s for sure. He is also the co-publisher of Black Caravan, an imprint of Scout Comics.

Joseph along with Jason Lynch created Murder Hobo. Our friends at the Bangor Comic and Toy Con enlisted to co-creators to put together a variant cover for 2020 event. However, COVID-19 had other plans. You can find a few copies of this variant at Galactic Comics and Collectibles on Hammond Street in Bangor, Maine. The variant cover was illustrated by TMNT legend Steve Lavigne.

Ben Bishop created a variant cover for Schmalke’s Phantom Starkiller as part of the Quarter 1 Bishart Kids Club subscription.
