He never made it on Earth.
But a magical wish makes him the brightest star in a universe on the verge of
"The Great Suckening!"

Brian’s work reminds me of the Cartoon Network Shows I grew up watching and adore so much.Very funny stuff. Also as a music and science guy, I love the mashup. Check him out. You won’t regret it. – Rob J Pep (Reader)


You’re going to look forward to the second issue. Will Riff save this rock-music dimension one villainous underling at a time? It’ll be fun to find out, especially if there are more puns involved. – Donna-Lyn Washington (ReviewFix.com)



The Mighty Riff™ is an independent comic from the shallow yet deeply confused mind of Brian Coles and edited by his dear, patient wife Rose Coles.

Imagine if Flash Gordon, Angus Young and Benny Hill conceived a child while watching a VHS copy of The Ice Pirates.

After wiping the bile off your chin, we encourage you to reflect on the fabulous yet triumphant disaster this promises!
