Signing At Floating World Comics In Portland, OR On April 17!

Yo! If you’re in Portland, OR next Wednesday, TFRS colorist Ryan Hill and I will be at the legendary Floating World Comics signing TFRS #1 and giving out maximum high-fives.

Here’s the full press release for all the info, and don’t forget, TFRS #1 is avail for pay-what-you-wish download!


Earth’s legit-est teenage protectors have vanquished evil and are settling into sleep mode… until their new mentor accidentally unleashes a fresh batch of cosmic monsters, forcing them to engage evil once again as Task Force Rad Squad.

Task Force Rad Squad #1 is a 32-page, full-color calamity by writer Caleb Goellner, artist Buster Moody and colorist Ryan Hill that introduces readers to three teens with radditude, their substance-addled “mentor” and the weary AI known as PhRANCIS. Powered by the specious cosmic tech of an extinct Space Wizard civilization, the team has inherited a universe of messes that they rightfully resent having to mop up. But who knows? Maybe their struggle to protect Earth from sentient birthday cakes and hot garbage will wind up teaching them the true meaning of friendship? Maybe??? Seriously, we have no idea!

“Task Force Rad Squad is hilarious, bizarre, and made of 100% butt kicking radditude.”
—Sam Humphries, writer of Our Love Is Real, Sacrifice and Uncanny X-Force
