Hello all,

I’ve created a new website. You can now find all the stuff on here, and more, at Amazingjciano.com

The new issue of Tales of Happenstance can be found there, along with a preview of the Black Woods.  Check it out. This is going to be the last post here, so feel free to join me on the new site!


Hey all,

Issue Six is finally here. I’m really excited we could have it done in time for Halloween. Sly is fantastic and I really love his coloring this issue. It’s been amazing building to this point in each story and I’m really excited about where Another Night and Broadway go from here. Being fans of vintage comics, we had a lot of fun with the cover and I hope those who asked about the fight are happy with it. Those who didn’t, well you’re getting it anyways. Surprise!

Hope you all enjoy this and have a great Halloween!




Hey everyone. Gearing up for Inbeon Con this weekend. I’ll be there with Tales of Happenstance artist, Sly Krapa. He’ll have copies of his graphic novel, The Smoke Man, with him so be sure to pick up a copy (I know I’m buying one). We’ll be there 10am – 6pm at the Islandia Marriot.

So, when Sly and I were working on the cover for Issue Five, I had this idea for a visual of a wine glass spilling on a carpet. Sly sent over a test of that idea, which is the wine glass spilling onto an all white void (Which was used as the cover for the online release of the comic). He then later got me the final edition of the cover, which also came out great. But I loved the all white version of the cover and decided that we would make that the variant cover of the printed edition. So, the all white cover will be sold only at con appearances, while the regular cover will be available pretty much everywhere else.

I’m excited to see you all at the con. Feel free to stop by and say hi. 13334835_10209864515152187_149844135_o13305192_10209834427440013_827173588806747147_o

Hey everyone.

Fun news. I’ll be on the comic con scene for a few dates this summer.

So far, I’m booked for the following:

Eternal Con: June 10-12

Inbeon Con: August 27

I’ll be selling issues 1-4 of Tales of Happenstance, plus a new book called the Black Woods. More on that book coming soon. Hope to see you all out there!


Hope everyone is having a great memorial day, and is taking the time to remember those who died to protect this country.

I think this is the first issue where Broadway is the main feature. As such, it takes the cover. Sly is working on a different variation of it, but I feel like the one he first sent (seen here) is incredibly powerful. It’ll be interesting to see what happens when this goes to print. Could Tales of Happenstance have it’s first variant cover? We’ll see.

Some big news on the horizon, but in the mean time, enjoy your friends and family today…and maybe give this a read. Cheers!

In the meantime, enjoy this preview of Tales of Happenstance #5Cg7d01LXEAEcs89.jpg-large

Hello Again!

Newest issue! To say I’m proud of this issue would be an understatement. Sly continues to be fantastic on art, and I think this is the best work I’ve ever seen him do. It’s been a pleasure to work with him on this and watch his art evolve.

Hope you all enjoy. Let me know what you think as always.

Hey all! Happy New Year! So I’ve been doing some production work for Fast Company. It has been great to work with some fantastic people and you may actually see me in some of these. Enjoy and hope the new year started well for you!





Here’s issue three. Very excited and proud of this one. This is the first issue where Another Night and Broadway are half and half. Enjoy! CoverPage 1page 2 revisionPage 3 Page 4 page 5 Page 6 Page 7 Page 8 Page 9 Page 10

Well we finally did it. Issue two is here. Sly changed up his style a bit while doing the art so that’s why it took a bit longer, but I think it’s worth the wait. This continues the story of Another Night starting Alex and Jack from issue one. The second feature is the debut of a new story called Broadway. Broadway was supposed to be in issue one but had to be pushed back. It’s here now though, and I hope you enjoy.

If you’re not caught up, you can find Issue One here:  https://jciano.wordpress.com/2014/04/30/tales-of-happenstance-issue-1/
