TOP SHELF'S 2008 SAMPLER COVER


Here is the recent cover art I did for Top Shelf's 2008 Seasonal Sampler. The Sampler will probably be shipped in the spring/early summer and is a great free trade paperback-sized volume featuring tonnes of artwork and previews of upcoming books by myself, James Kolchaka, Nate Powell and a bunch of other great cartoonists, as well as perrenial Top Shelf favorites. So be sure to ask your local comic shops for one.

IT'S A BIRD, IT'S A PLANE IT'S...



This new painting of Superman is now available at the new Art Store section of my website, which has been updated, including the illustration section.

Also, the amazing Brett Warnock over at his Top Shelf Blog has some cool Essex County related photos, as well as a sneak peak at the cover I did for their 2008 Sampler Catalogue coming this Spring.

It's the last part of the video, as she announces all her best superhero picks first, and then ends by awarding both Jeff Lemire's GHOST STORIES (Top Shelf) and Adrian Tomine's SHORTCOMINGS (D&Q) as the two books that tied for "Best Indy Comic Of The Year". Thanks, Blair! Very cool.
