Going back to S.P.A.C.E.!

EVIL AINT EASY AT THE CON webWe are excited to return to the S.P.A.C.E. (Small Press and Alternative Comics Expo) convention in Columbus, Ohio, this year!  Twelve years ago, it was the first ever con that we tabled at.  It had a great energy to it… nothing but creators displaying their original (and sometimes hand-printed) comics.  We only had one comic printed at the time, but we still had fun.  This time, we’ll be bringing several comics, graphic novels, sketchbooks, novels, and prints.  If you’re anywhere in the area, we hope you can make it out!  (Admission is free!)  I’ll even be giving a presentation about teaching comics on Saturday.

Above is a brand new Evil Ain’t Easy comic I made for the convention program.  Our friend, Levi Hoffmeier, makes an appearance alongside his excellent Mayflower comic.  If you like high-quality sci-fi stories with beautifully rendered art, then you should really check it out!  Plus, he’s just a heck of a nice guy.

Once again, we are really looking forward to Planet Comicon this Friday through Sunday!  If you are in the area, come by and check it out… you can find our table with the map above.  And be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter… we will be holding contests and giveaways on there all weekend!

We are premiering a new collection of the 33 hobo drawings I have worked on for a while (based on the list of hobo names by John Hodgman).  We are also offering a special sketch cover version of this book on which you can get a custom commission of yourself or another character as a hobo.

Planet Comicon 2017 Wrap-up

Our booth at Planet Comicon

We once again had a swell time at Planet Comicon.  We always love getting to hang out next to the talented Levi Hoffmeier all weekend and talk shop (check out his excellent Mayflower comic!).  My daughter got to attend her first big con and even cosplay as an Undertale character.  I drew several commissions that you can see here, including an Admiral Thrawn for my brother-in-law that I got signed by Thrawn’s creator, Timothy Zahn!  A big thank-you to everyone who made it a great show!

We are really looking forward to year two of this new Kansas City Comicon this Friday through Sunday!  We had a great time last year, and people really seemed to enjoy it.  If you are in the area, come by and check it out… you can find our table with the map above.

We are especially excited to finally debut the new Rook City Vol. 1 at this show!  This book collects all three issues of the series, along with 25 pages of bonus content (including a new prologue and epilogue not featured on the webcomic).  We’re pretty proud of how it turned out.
