Our Heroes Re-Emerge, Stage Left

Friday, October 19, 2012 - 08:23 AM

We're back into it! Back into the guts of Slaughter's marketplace, back with the Machito crew as they look for pilots. I, for one, have missed this tremendously.

My project schedule is finally -- finally -- starting to lighten back up, and it looks like I can slowwwwly start returning to DRIVE. This means the world to me...as this story is one I'm very much writing as a gift to myself. And I've missed it.

The big detour, these past five months, has been the documentary film I'm making, STRIPPED. Turns out, feature-length films are immensely complex undertakings that require tons of time. Who could've guessed. WHO COULD'VE GUESSED. :)

Fred Schroeder and I have been pouring all our spare time into it, trying to get it ready for all our Kickstarter backers, and in time for the film festival season. Thankfully, we're nearing the promised land, and I'm proud of how the film is turning out.

Anyway! Over the next 2-3 months, as the post-production work on STRIPPED winds down, I should be able to slowwwly increase the number of DRIVEs I can produce, until we return to our once-a-week schedule.

As I have in the past, I'd recommend adding DRIVE to your RSS feed, or signing up for e-mail delivery, as that'll save you from having to check the site. The updates will be irregular for a few more months, so that's the least stressful option.

Thank you for your kindness and patience during these past few months! Even though DRIVE is a strip I'm drawing as a gift to myself, I know a lotta-lotta folks are getting into it, and have missed it as much as I have. So thankfully our long national nightmare is drawing to a close.

San Diego Comic-Con!

Monday, July 9, 2012 - 12:16 AM

I'll be there all five days in booth 1228, with TWO new books (new Pugs books & new Drive book)! Here's what you need to know:

Here's the breakdown:

1.) New Pugs book is debuting at the show! The original Pugs book just went into a second printing, and the new book will be joining it at San Diego. It's called "Pugs: They Think They're People. Really Old, Retired People." Here's the cover:

2.) New Drive book! I'm really excited for you guys to see this one. The advance copy that I have looks sa-weet.

3.) There'll be a few posters new to San Diego, as well. Like the Batpug poster and the Wine Spectator poster!

4.) Friday night, please don't miss my panel for my documentary movie, Stripped! 7-8PM, Room 25ABC. We'll be screening over 8 minutes of the film, as well as sharing behind-the-scenes stories, and answering any questions you have for us! It's gonna be a pretty fun panel: We're pretty fun guys. (Aaaaand, we have one huge bit of news that comics fans are going to go nuts for.) Come on out! Friday, 7/13/12, 7-8PM, Room 25ABC!

5.) ONE LAST THING! If you're coming to the show, and want to snag a piece of original art at $25-off the normal price, please e-mail me. I can't bring all 3,000 strips to the show, so I really need you to e-mail me with the one you want. Thanks!

ALA Show This Weekend!

Monday, June 18, 2012 - 10:10 AM

Librarians! I'm going to be at the ALA show all this weekend in Anaheim (booth #678).
Come on by! I'll have all the books, all the prints, free sketches, and copious amounts of high fives.

I'll be there all four days of the show, directly across from my friends at Unshelved. And maybe do me a favor, while you're at the show: Drag a friend over to introduce them to the strip. The last time I did the ALA show, five years ago, there were a ton of librarians that did that -- and I really appreciated it!
