When you think about Michigan, I don’t think many would consider having a comic book company in our own backyard. But if you look really close at conventions, be it Fanfare or Motor City, you can catch the guys from Decayed Minds (DM) Comics rocking out like there is no tomorrow. Filled with a great ensemble of personality between the three gents, they have more than enough potential to change the game. The priority for them is a simple one: Make comics that the people would like to read, and make it as interesting as possible. Starting out in 2005 and not even pulling the brakes on this train through hard times they have cultivated their own stamp on the local industry.
For a three man ship, DM Comics doesn’t pull any punches and sports an all-star lineup of books. There is a massive amount of creativity between the three friends that have started this company. Chad Kovach, Head of DM Comics, brings stellar writing direction for two of their three flag ship comics; True Power and American Bloodlust. The scope of his vision isn’t limited by any means, and it is ensured to continue to grow with the talents of both Brian Shopp, True Power artist and co-writer, and Rob Kaminski, artist for American Bloodlust. Rob Kaminski (Rob K.) also writes and draws his own book, Ramen.
With the high dedication to the fans and striving to never sacrifice their own creative visions, each of their lineup books bring a unique flavor, sporting ideas which some wouldn’t ever consider—which encompasses all of the charm and mysticism packed in every page. Well thought out stories wrapped up in art that will make your skin crawl with excitement. Decayed Minds earns every inch of praise that they can get because of the passion, and hard work put forward to meet deadlines. To the creators, I say keep up the good work–what they do is rare, and that is producing content without fear; while doing a damn good job at it.
