Sequential Tart Interview

Hey, I got interviewed! By Sheena McNiel for Sequential Tart and here it is! I hope I don't sound like too much of a jerk. I would like to think I am not a jerk. At least not when it comes to comics. But to judge my jerkiness for yourself please read THIS and have a happy Monday.

PLAYBACK:stl Review!

Happy Friday Everyone!

One of these days I will post something that is neither review nor Deformitory related, but until that day here is another review, this time by Sarah Boslaugh for PLAYBACK:stl. She's given it a positive review (yay!) and offered up a new interpretation of Delores's lobster claws. Sarah speculates that it is a metaphor for the creative dilemma, one that feeds and betrays you, which I enjoy. :) This is coming on the heels of Rob Clough's interpretation that the claws can be seen as a metaphor for the nature of addiction. You can read Sarah's review HERE.

Also I got a shout out over at "Comics and ... Other Imaginary Tales" (here). Its not so much a review as a review of reviews? Whatever it is I appreciate the write up. :)

Enjoy your weekend, thanks for reading!

High-Low Review

Hey there young fellas!
Rob Clough has reviewed The Deformitory for his blog High-Low and he seemed to appreciate and enjoy it. He gives a thorough and accurate description of the plot and I have to say I happily agree with his criticism of my art work. Also I was reviewed alongside some artists I really admire as well as others I am looking forward to reading. Its the last in line about two thirds down the page right HERE. Go Summer Go Comics. xo

The Onion A.V. Club Comics Panel Review

Hullo All! The Deformitory has been reviewed in the A.V. Club's comics panel. I am pretty excited about this review becuase first of all they liked it and second of all The Onion and its sister site The A.V. Club have been my culture go to for many years now. The review can be read about 1/3 of the way down the page right HERE. Thanks for checking it out and thanks to anyone who is keeping up the good word about my book this month as August is a crucial juncture for The Deformitory to get orders. Have a great weekend!

Hello All!

Ok it is officially August which means that comics book shops across the nation have a copy of Diamond's August Previews featuring my comic book...that's right, you guessed it... The Deformitory! Needless to say this is a very exciting time for my book and also very important. If my comic gets enough orders then Diamond will pick it up and anyone can potentially swing by their favorite store and pick up a copy (provided that store ordered it). So if you support the book, mention it at your neighborhood comic shop, talk it up, drop a line about it on you blog, whatever. The more help it gets the better chance it's got and all this self-publishing rigmarole will not be in vain. Actually the experience thus far has been invaluable so it never really could be, but I really want The Deformitory to go all the way. So make sure your seller knows about it! Go Heart Monster!

(this is a brown heart monster I painted last week in walnut ink. Say "Hello")
