QUICK UPDATE / REMINDERS:

NEW SERIES (for me): THIS WEDNESDAY (9/5) sees the release of my first issue of THIEF OF THIEVES with Robert Kirkman (creator/writer Walking Dead, Invincible), Shawn Martinbrough (penciler Detective Comics), & Felix Serrano (colorist Generation X).

I’m deliriously proud to be a part of this awesome book from Image Comics / Skybound (and to be taking over this arc after the first by the bad-ass Nick Spencer) – and I think this issue is one of the strongest comics I’ve written!

The first collected volume (issues #1-7 scripted by Nick Spencer) will be available Wed in your comic shops –  or you can order it from Amazon HERE.  I genuinely recommend the book if you like cool, smart crime character pieces.

SIGNING IN ANAHEIM w/ CLAY MANN! – ALSO this Wed, I’ll be signing comics (or whatever you want, really) at Beach Ball Comics in Anaheim.  GAMBIT artist extraordinaire, Clay Mann, will be there too!  This is a very rare west-coast appearance by Clay – so you should make your way over (or get someone to come by on your behalf).  He’s even taking commissions for a few sketches if you can beat the cut-off HERE.

GAMBIT issues #1 AND #2 are OUT NOW.  If you haven’t picked them up yet, come by (or send a Southern California friend) and get a signed copy of the sexy cool goodness we’re cooking up :)

And while we’re at it, here’s some preview art from issue #3 – out 9/12!!

SAN DIEGO COMIC CONIt’s that time of year again!  The biggest comics (and movies, and games, and toys, and television, and merch, and art…) convention in the US, San Diego Comic Con. (If you don’t want my thoughts on the matter, you can skip down to the ‘Business Time’ bit.)  But, I think I now preferr to call it NERDI GRAS as someone brilliantly titled one sub-event.

I used to live in New Orleans, I can’t tell you how accurate that parallel is.  A million out-of-towners descend on a small city and wreak havoc, run up huge bar tabs, dress up in all kinds of crazy costumes, while strangers try to give everyone a bunch of trinkets, ephemera, and promotional items that 90% of people will throw out within a month.  IT’S GREAT!

I’m tempted to say the only major difference is there is less debauchery and nudity at Comic Con, but I have a sneaking suspicion that I’m just not going to the right events and after-parties.

In the words of Flight of the Conchords, ‘It’s Business Time’

If you’re looking for me at Comic Con, I only guarantee one appearance – I’ll be SIGNING AT MARVEL’S BOOTH on THURS 7/21 from 6-7pm & SAT 7/23 from 5-6PM.   Please come by and say hello and get something signed!  Other than that, I’ll be seeing panels for my own entertainment & edification, shopping, and stalking Alan Davis & Mike Allred.

I’ll also be glad-handing a few editors to try and find a home for the new project I teased in the last post.  The book’s working title is THE LIFE & END TIMES of BRAHM & BEN, a collaboration with friend & writer JIM FESTANTE and fantastic (German!) artist named REMUS BREZEANU.  Among other developments, I’ve reformatted the first few pages into something I’m really tickled with:

I have loved those fire, brimstone, and damnation mini comics that conservative evangelicals hand out.*  (CHICK Tracts, if you’re not familiar.)  I have wanted to re-purpose their aesthetic for a long time, and this is the perfect project to do it.  Now, this project was/is designed as a standard comic.  But 85% of our first 7 pages fit pretty perfectly into this format, so I thought it’s worth trying to catch attention.   If nothing else, I know my editor Jordan White will get a kick out it.  He’s had his own fascination w/ them.

But if you’re going – let me know!  TWITTER ME any fun stuff or good meet-up opportunities.  And I hope you all have a safe, fun, and sexxxy NERDI GRAS.

*  *  *  *  *

*To clarify, this is not intended as a mockery of Christianity.  Just of these absolutely terrifying comics that people hand to young, unsuspecting children at parades.  (As was my introduction at around 7 years old.) To be fair, I was raised Catholic (which they equate with Masonry and devil worship).
