About Me

Hi, and welcome to my blog!

My name is Terence Hanley. I am an artist and a writer interested in cartooning, illustration, art, literature, history, and popular culture.

I have been drawing for as long as I can remember, but I didn't begin publishing my work until 2009 with my first coloring book, Mothman, Aliens, and Flying Saucers.

As you might guess, I like monsters, aliens, mythology, science fiction, fantasy, and superheroes. I have several books in print. I'm working on several more and hope to create and publish at least a couple of new books every year.

Here's what I have so far:

Mothman, Aliens, & Flying Saucers Coloring Book
I drew this coloring book in 2009 for my first Mothman Festival, held every year in Point Pleasant, West Virginia. It's entirely hand-drawn, with a hand-colored front cover and a hand-painted back cover. Inside you will find sixteen pages to color, every one of them featuring an alien or creature, plus lots of flying saucers. Every picture is based on a supposed real sighting. You can read more about them in the notes for investigators inside!

$4.00 each plus $2.00 for shipping and handling

Monsters & Aliens of America Coloring Book
This is my second coloring book, completed in time for the Mothman Festival in 2010. As you can see, it has a brightly colored wraparound cover, hand-painted as before. You'll find every one of the monsters and creatures from the cover inside as well, sixteen pages in all. There are more notes for investigators, so you can look into each case on your own!

$4.00 each plus $2.00 for shipping and handling

Lucky Girl #1 Comic Book
Lucky Girl #1 is my first comic book drawn for publication. Lucky Girl made her debut at the Small Press and Alternative Comics Expo (S.P.A.C.E.) in March 2011. Just who is Lucky Girl? Well she's a girl like any other except that she likes to investigate crimes and solve mysteries. The first issue includes two stories, twenty pages in all. I have started work on the second issue and plan to have it in print in 2013!

$3.00 plus $2.00 shipping and handling

Here's the back cover of Lucky Girl #1. If you're dying to know the answers to the questions it poses, maybe you should order a copy.
Five Star Comics #1 Comic Book
In 2010 I began working on a comic book project with some other artists and writers. Five Star Comics, printed in 2011, is the result. There are five stories in this book, each starring a public domain character from the Golden Age of Comics. I wrote three of the stories, drew two stories on my own, and helped draw a third. The lineup of this 37-page, black-and-white book:
  • "Moth Man Meets Mothman" by Terence Hanley
  • Silver Streak and Missile in "Yesterday and Today" by Larry Blake
  • Marvel Maid in "Agent of Doom" by Terence Hanley
  • "Flip Falcon in the Fourth Dimension" by Jordan Lowe and Gary Gibeaut
  • "Cave Girl" by Terence Hanley, Larry Blake, and Gary Gibeaut

The reaction has been great. Everyone who has seen it and read has loved Five Star Comics #1. We sold out of the first print run and now have a new batch of comics for sale.

$4.00 each plus $2.00 shipping & handling

Five Star Comics #2 Comic Book
We completed our second issue of Five Star Comics in 2012. Once again, there are five stories featuring five different characters drawn by five different artists. Here's the lineup:

  • "Origin of the Black Bat" by Matt Marshall
  • "The Trojan Cuckoo" by Terence Hanley, Larry Blake, and Tim Corrigan
  • "The Return of Lady Luck" by Gary Gibeaut
  • "The Case of the Nut Case" by Terence Hanley, Tim Corrigan, and Many Hands
