A single step…

Hello there. My name is Richard Mooney and I am currently the writer of 2 comic series.

The first is “The adventures of Percy Nobleman” which you can read parts of for free at

It is a lighthearted tale about a man in search of the perfect beard and the adventures he has along the way.

The second comic I am working on is entitled “Uptown Chronicles” and it could not be further removed from my other projects.
