Convention season begins! I’ll be at Artists Alley booth L6 at Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo, aka C2E2, promoting ‘Interesting Drug’ and ‘Hell, Nebraska.’ There will be bananas. Come say hi!
My second interview on Interesting Drug is up, this time at Newsarama:
With all my time spent writing for CBR, it’s kind of odd to find myself on the front page of its main rival–but you know, I’ve got some good friends at ‘Rama and we’re all just guys and gals who love comics. Very pleased with how this turned out. Many thanks to Lucas for setting this up and to Lan for doing the interview!
Ahoy! This has been a very long time coming. My friends at CBR interviewed me about my upcoming book from Archaia, ‘Interesting Drug’:
Over at Newsarama, here it is in BOOM! Studios/Archaia’s solicitations for May 2014, at bottom:
You can preorder at Amazon or your local comic shop. Enjoy the trip!
Well, friends, we’re approaching the end of ‘Hell, Nebraska’ six issue digital run, and I’d love to bring the whole thing to print. So here’s the Kickstarter, where you and all your closest pals can preorder the TPB along with a few other fun rewards:
If all goes well, I’m looking to debut at the Cincy ComiCon in September. Thanks for your support!
Aaaannd… my web site has reverted! I experimented with a service that lets you design a more commerce-y site, which would certainly be nice in some regards, but which created some complications in others. Like, for example, no file hosting beyond images incorporated directly into the design. Now I’m looking for something a little in between what that site was and what this is, will get around that in between all the other projects on my plate.
In the meantime, I had a story in Dark Horse Presents! Alongside Neil Gaiman and Paul Chadwick! So definitely check that out.
Well, an embarrassing amount of time has passed since I last updated. And much has changed. First, and significantly, I’m no longer doing regular interviews for CBR–I still do convention coverage and contribute to the occasional list feature (such as the upcoming “Best of 2012″), but now I’m focusing on my own comics and fiction projects.
Speaking of… the startup through which I’d been planning to launch The Red King, my historical Macbeth epic, failed to start up. So that story is back on the market. Gonna go ahead and post a sample. Click the cover for eight pages of goodness from me, Anna, and letterer extraordinaire Ed Brisson!
Finally, I also have a few new issues of Hell, Nebraska up at Comixology. Have a look, won’t you?
Will try to keep this place a little more current, a bit more tidy. Hold me to it!
Hey, wow, it’s time for an update, right? Overdue, even.
As my own comics projects are clicking along, I’ve had some opportunities for awesome interviews at Comic Book Resources:
Three interviews about recent developments in “Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 9,” the comic book continuation of the show. (There was also a Season 8, if you missed it. Big changes for Buff, read the comics before you read my interviews.
Douglas Rushkoff is brilliant. Here’s us talking about the big ideas behind his new comic.
Gene Yang is a fantastic, award-winning cartoonist. He’s been tapped to continue “Avatar” in comics.
“Transformers” was my first comic, and I still remember where I was when I read the final issue. So this was cool.
Garfield goes from comic strips to comic books!
As does Popeye!
BUT WAIT! THERE’S MORE!
Here’s a brief profile of me in the Michigan Record, a the faculty/staff publication of the University of Michigan:
My Q&A with Dr. Ole R. Holsti on his new book, for the University of Michigan Press blog:
It’s an interesting book, and an engaging discussion.
