The Art of Action and Adventure
Welcome to DMND Thunderbolt’s New Website!
You have entered the center of my creative universe! The DMND (pronounced Diamond) Thunderbolt website is a compendium of traditional & digital comics, games, animated features, and toys.
“I’m Matthew, and Illustrator, Writer, and Concept Artist that loves to make comics, design toys, write scripts, play pinball, and develop videogames. I hope that you enjoy my various projects as much as I enjoy bringing them to you. Please check back often, comment on stuff that you love, and email me at M@DMNDthunderbolt.com!”
DMND Thunderbolt started as a collective endeavour with my closest friends while I was still attending college. It was a way to combine our expertise and resources to print and distribute a multi-issue comic book that I began my Junior year and completed for my Senior Capstone… The comic was Order of the Rose.
DMND Thunderbolt, and Order of the Rose, have come a long way since then…
Whether it’s the archive of my early Order of The Rose stories, or the showcase of new materials and adventures as Moses, Fear, Swan, Dr. Manuel E. Lightningstrike, and the rest of the O of the R span the globe thwarting evil KGB clones, Power-mad dictators, and making stunning scientific discoveries in a hyper-realised 1980s universe.
Within the pages of Order of the Rose, it’s truly Science in Action!
Or showcasing the development of my historical fiction graphic novel about early aviation, The Great American Flier.
The Great American Flier recounts the amazing and harrowing adventures of early aviators. Spanning two generations; more than four decades; and seven continents, The Great American Flier’s saga spans the Gilded age into the Modern Era.
The Great American Flier is about the pioneering American spirit. It’s a story about family, love, loss, driven by it’s characters, and settings around the globe. Many of the events and people are real and historically accurate.
Here you will find principle character designs, original artwork, script treatments, and a dedicated blog that chronicles the multitude of research materials I like to call “Adventurepedia.”
DMND Thunderbolt is now joined by Titanium Toys and Games! Check out the concepts and mock-ups for toys, videogames, and pinball tables under the subsidiary of Titanium. Or other materials, including designs for animated shows and movies…as we expand into other media.
And let’s not forget exclusive content to the Website starting with the New Sci-Fi webcomic, Verstehen!
