New Review

While I was away Matthew Brady gave me a review on his site Warren Peace (cleverest title ever). You can read it here. Matthew offers yet another possible interpretation of Dolores's problem which reminds me again how an author can have little to do with what his story is "about". Its a very kind review and the rest of the site is very awesome as he looks at beautiful older Kirby stuff as well as a great variety of current graphic novels. Quality stuff people. Check it out.

Goddamned Dirty APE

I am sure that joke is made all the time, but it just occurred to me. All right so this weekend is the Alternative Press Expo in San Francisco. And I have to say I am really excited because it looks like a really awesome convention and secondly I have never been to California!
I will be exhibiting with fellow illustrator and cartoonist Cat Lauigan. For those of you who are attending please stop by table 151 to check out what we've been working on. We'll have lots of fantastic books and as usual I will be selling underwear. Trust me, its adorable.
Below is the cover of my new and humble mini-comic "My Terrible Tearable Heart". Come by and check it all out.

SPX & Forty Four Presidents

Well Folks SPX came and went a couple weeks ago and apparently i was soooo awesome that I lost my blogging brain and have yet to get them back until now. But here is my SPX report! I Shared a Table with cartoonist J.T. Yost and I think we both came away from it very pleased with the weekend. The fair had a really good "vibe" for lack of a better word as the venue was comfortable and there was good flow. The biggest complaint was how utterly cold the place got on the second day. But if that's the biggest complaint at a convention then that's a good sign.
I met a lot of really cool people, including our table mate to the right Josh Neufeld author of A.D.: New Orleans After the Deluge. I was really struck this time around at how truly nice most of the people you meet are.
Other things I love is seeing all the good new stuff out there and the big pile of reading material which satiates me for weeks afterwards. I regret not meeting more of the people I wanted to but I always feel like I don't "do" enough. Here is J.T. manning our weirdly located table below:

In other news my friend and fellow cartoonist Maria Sputnik has just released her hilarious book Forty Four Presidents co authored by MZA. You can check it out on Amazon.

Oh there's more! So much more. APE is coming up and I have a new mini (mini!) comic, but it will have to wait until tomorrow.
