It’s that time of year again. The one time a year I open up the donation jar, and ask people to donate to support the tons of free content that this website creates, now for five-plus years and running. June 6 through 18, tons of free content, and all donors who give ANY amount of money will get the following rewards:

1. Exclusive Donation Drive mixtape
An all-new, all original mixtape album of exclusive music. I save some of the best tracks for this album every year. It will include the preview song above, “W.W.W.W.D.”

2. Exclusive Mikal kHill Remix album
An album remixing some of the more popular free tracks I’ve released on this website, by collaborator and fellow nerd emcee, Mikal kHill.

3. BOOM! Studios Digital Comics Sampler
Very excited to offer all donors a BOOM! Studios digital comics sampler, featuring digital issues of some of the best comics that the great BOOM! Studios has to offer. Check out their lineup!

4. Donation Drive Goal: Support to Another Indie Artist
Additionally, this year, if I surpass my previous best of 750 donors, all proceeds raised past that point will be donated to an indie artist of the audience’s choosing. Submit any suggestions to adamwarrockmixtape(at), and if we can hit the goal, I’ll drop a nice donation into their kickstarter/patreon/paypal/whatever, and spread the love in the hopes that more artists can keep making great web content for you.

I’ll speak more about this as we get closer, but I hope you’ll consider donating and supporting this site. It’s how I make my living, and I pay for everything myself. Travel to cons and tours, merch production, album production, keeping this website running (and updating the server since it broke earlier this year). Help keep running another year.

“Howard (The Duck)” [free tunes]


Adam WarRock “Howard (The Duck)” (Download MP3)
Beat used: Matoma “That Old Thing”


I’m back! Making comic songs. Big shoutout to Chip Zdarsky and Joe Quinones (one of my fave artists) for their new Howard the Duck title, which you should go purchase and read now (link).

So this song took a weird turn, bc I basically wrote it all out to this super hardcore beat, kinda angry and salty (much like Howard) and it just wasn’t working. So I basically plugged this beat, and its weird 80s-ish vibe worked well, and the timing of the lyrics all fit. So basically the whole tone of the song flipped 180. I’m pretty happy with it.

I never had a huge connection to Howard the Duck, though I did get to read all the back issues of it thanks to my friend Curt who basically forced me to borrow it at one point. And while he basically kept saying “You’re never going to read this” (because I am infamous for borrowing things and then forgetting to read or watch them) – I did! So take that Curt! In your FACE! Anyway, you should grab the NEW comic. I know I’ll be reading it and keeping up with it. Whatever Chip does and Joe draws, I mean, I’m kind of already in.

I’m currently busting my hump to finish my Donation Drive stuff, which will be happening in early June. Rewards, rewards, rewards! For all who donate to help keep this site feeding you free music. It only happens once a year. So prepare.

Also, I have a show on Free Comic Book Day! I’ll be at Super-Fly Comics in Yellow Springs, OH this Saturday performing in the evening. Come by and say hi! (more info)

Remastered Collection Mixtape


Download the mixtape here

Sometime last year, I got new mastering software, and started professionally mastering all my songs. You can really hear a difference, if you listen to songs from like a year or two ago, and ones that I made in the past year. I think it sounds a lot better. Anyway, I went back and took some of my favorite songs from the site and other mixtapes and remastered them, along with a couple of new songs, like this one!

So here’s a very convenient album (with cover artwork by the awesome Jamie Noguchi) for you to listen to a bunch of WarRock stuff LIKE YOU’VE NEVER HEARD IT BEFORE. Hope you enjoy it.

1. D&DD (new track)
2. 100 Bars
3. Longshot (from Donation Drive Album)
4. Lex Luthor
5. Old Man River (Remix)

7. Nemo (off Laptop Fundraiser)
8. Borderlands (Remixed by Vince Vandal)
9. Active Squad (from Mass Effect 3 Mixtape)
10. Revenge (Adult Style) (From Kill Bill Mixtape)
11. Old Man Logan
12. Stumptown (Remix) (From Oni Press Mixtape)
13. The Hanging Gardens (From Bastion Mixtape)
14. All Day Breakfast (From Donation Drive Album)
15. Destroyer of Worlds (Prod. Vince Vandal)
16.  Ta-Nehisi
17. T.O.Y. (From West Coast Avengers Mixtape)

Most songs link to their respective homes, where you can find full credits. Track 5 features C. Schoonover. Track 9 features Mikal kHill, Beefy, Kabuto the Python. Track 13 originally by Darren Korb. All songs are for promotional use only, because it’s a mixtape dummy.

“Purple and Yellow” [Batgirl - new tunes]

Beat used: The RZA “Rivers of Blood”

Had a chance to finally read and catch up with Cameron Stewart & Brendan Fletchre’s new Batgirl title for DC Comics. Besides the fact that Stewart & Babs Tarr’s art is a joy to look at, it’s a great title that harkens back to any number of great comics that do what they do best: show what it means to be a young person of exceptional and at times, ostracizing and frustrating circumstances. If you haven’t checked it out yet, then you should take a second and give it a chance. Get Volume 1 here.

I mean, I know everyone wants me to do more DC comic songs. So here you go.

I am deep in the tank, working hard on my next Donation Drive mixtape and rewards package, coming in June! The one time a year I open up a donate button and give out tons of rewards in an attempt to keep running another year. Stay tuned for more details. In the meantime, come out and see a show:

April 10 – The Abbey Underground – Denton, TX (facebook event) (after show Modern Masters Draft)
April 23 - The Symposium – Cleveland, OH (facebook event)
April 24 - Indie Comix Expo- Chicago, IL
May 2 - FCBD – Super-Fly Comics – Yellow Springs, OH
(Note: The Modern Myths Northampton show has been cancelled)

Oni Presents… Kaijumax/Hellbreak – split single


Download the split single of Kaijumax/Hellbreak for FREE, and receive free digital previews of both titles! By providing your email address you agree to receive occasional updates about Hellbreak, Kaijumax and other Oni Press titles.

I’ve got a pretty unique opportunity to not only offer you some new music, but also some comics! The new titles of Kaijumax by Zander Cannon (Top 10) and Hellbreak by Cullen Bunn (The Sixth Gun, Magneto) and Brian Churilla are coming out from Oni Press, and you can read previews of them for free!

Written by Cullen Bunn, illustrated by Brian Churilla, colored by Dave Stewart 
There are thousands of Hells, each unique, each terrible. Mega-cities ruled by vicious gangs. Empires where the most perverse are well-respected. Wastelands roamed by prehistoric monstrosities. With the proper tools and know-how… you can infiltrate Hell whether you’re dead or not. With the proper tools and know-how, you can break out. Project Kerberos has developed this forbidden technology, and a special forces extraction team is dispatched to rescue lost souls from the infernal realm. 

by Zander Cannon 
Welcome to Kaijumax, where the worst of the worst monsters are safely locked away from the human world, whether they be villains, anti-heroes, eco-parables, or nuclear metaphors. Electrogor is ripped away from his family and struggles to determine whom to trust, which gangs to avoid, and when to take on the big man to show you aren’t to be trifled with.

Go to my Bandcamp page now, and download the new single for free by providing your email and check out some cool comics!
