Multiplex/Wonderella book signing at Chicago Comics

If you’re in the Chicago area, please come meet me and Justin Pierce (The Non-Adventures of Wonderella) out at Chicago Comics on January 22nd. We’ll be signing copies of our new (-ish, in my case) books from 3pm – 8pm! Wonderella Book 2 will be brand spankin’ new, and I don’t know about you, but I’m looking forward to getting my greasy mitts on it.

If you’d like a high-res version of this flier to print out and post anywhere and everywhere you’d like, you can download this PDF (non-commercial uses only!).

More Blue Beetle

Sorry, I haven’t updated this in a while! I’ve been spending far too much time trying to promote the book (and after the news that Diamond is — at least for now — passing on it, getting a bit discouraged by it all). I will try to remedy that in the near future.

Monday’s strip may be late, because I’ll be out of town most of the weekend, unfortunately, but I’ll let you know.

Anyway, here’s a sketch of my favorite super-hero ever, which I did in a few idle minutes at the Indianapolis Comic Book Show the other weekend:

Artist’s Edition Sketch #2: Becky as Ramona

I forgot the goggle things, but… yeah. Anyway, this is another Artist’s Edition sketch, for Daniel Farrelly, featuring Becky as Ramona from Scott Pilgrim. And once again, I missed a couple of lines before I took the picture. :1 Anyway. Thanks, Dan!

Artist’s Edition Sketch #1

Here’s an example of the sort of sketches I’m doing for the Artist’s Editions. (I do actually sign it TO you — or someone else, if you ask me to; I just digitally removed the person’s name for privacy reasons.)

Most actually don’t have this much black on them, because it actually starts to make the paper curl a little bit. Also, since I’m left-handed and the paper (although it’s a matte stock) has a bit of gloss to it, I have a tendency to smudge the marker, so I need to avoid very detailed sketches in the books. That’s why they’re only $5 more than the regular edition, not $10, like most Artist’s Editions of webcomics collections.

If you’d like something extra complicated, I’d really recommend getting one of the sketches from the store instead. I ink those with a brush or crow quill on Bristol, so I can get much more detailed with them.

Oh, whoops, and I just noticed I missed a line along the left side of Kurt’s face. I’ll fix that before I mail it. Anyway, I’m sure most of you aren’t expecting too incredibly much; I mean, it’s not like I’m known for my hand-drawing skills. :)
