My #1 Fan



My book is so good it made my niece Lillianne drool, then pass out.

LAUNCH PARTY TONIGHT

for anyone in the Toronto area... there will be a launch party for GHOST STORIES tonight at the Victory Cafe on Markham Street. The event will run as a part of the Beguiling's monthly "industry night", and I will be previewing and reading from Essex County Volume 3: The Country Nurse! It's from 7-9, so still plenty of time to stop by and still make it out to your Halloween parties. Hope to see you there.

SPX 2007 ROUND UP


Just got back from SPX 2007, and I gotta say it was my favorite show of the year! I had a blast hanging out with Brett Warnock, Chris Staros (pictured above with myself), Matt "Superspy" Kindt, Jeffrey Brown and Andy Hartzel. We debuted GHOST STORIES , and it went over really well, we sold a tonne of copies and the reception was quite positive.

I did a bunch of sketches for people, including this David Bowie for Wizard writer Sean T. Collins, and this "Little Head" from Dick Tracey for Richard Marcej.

And, of course, I also scored a lot of great comics. Here are some of the gems:

Burning Building Comics by Jeff Zwirek

A great short story, Dads by Rob "Surrogates" Venditti


The Infinite League vs Misc. by Ashley Holt

And the amazing Old-Timey Hockey Tales by Rob Ullman, who coincidentally was seated right across from me.

WORK IN PROGRESS: ANATOMY OF A WINDOW DISPLAY




Well, my window at The Beguiling display is up and as you can see it is completely different than my original sketch. Once I checked out the space at The Beguiling, I realized my initial idea just wouldn't work, so I revised it. I'm quite happy with the results.


Also, as some of you may have realized, GHOST STORIES in fact comes out today, not yesterday due to the Canadian holiday on Monday.

And finally, I will be signing, sketching and selling paintings at SPX this weekend in Bethesda, MD, so if you are in the area be sure to stop by!

ESSEX COUNTY 2: GHOST STORIES-SHIPS ON WEDNESDAY!!!


My next graphic novel Essex County Vol.2: Ghost Stories ships to comic shops Wednesday, October 10! I just received my comps via Fed Ex, and they look great.


So, I'd thought I'd spend the days leading up to the books' release posting some "DVD bonus features" for the book, concept work, deleted scenes etc...

Also, I will be putting my window display up at the Beguiling on Tuesday, Oct. 9, and I'll be sure to post pics of that, then it's off to Bethesda, MA for SPX 2007, and Ghost Stories' official launch.
