Attention: Idaho!

Join me this Wednesday, March 28, for a public lecture at The University of Idaho in Moscow. I’ll be speaking in the Ag Science Auditorium (Room 106) at 6:30 pm.

(And if you’re coming in from out of town, be sure to swing by the legendary Safari Pearl, our Moscow hosts during our 50 State Tour in 2007. I don’t have a formal signing this trip, but I plan to swing by and say hi while in town.)


He Made the Giant Pen, You Can Bet He’ll Make the Comic

Tom Spurgeon said it best on Twitter: “I would empty my wallet for Jim Woodring were he to walk up to me and ask, so of course I’ll give something to this…”

I’m always excited by a new Woodring book, but when I can tell that Jim himself is especially excited about a book, that’s an event in the making. Let’s help make it happen, shall we?


Attention: New Jersey, Philly Area, and Delaware!

Come see my lecture at Rowan University in Glassboro, New Jersey, this Monday morning (Feb. 20) at 10:50 a.m. in Boyd Recital Hall (Wilson Hall).

The lecture is free and open to the public.

The First Word

A new comic from Patrick Farley, and boy, is it a stunner. (NSFW)


24HRBD!

Good luck to all the artists at this year’s 24 Hour BD event in conjunction with the international comics festival in Angoulême.

451 Participants… Yikes!


I Detect a Disturbance in the Force

I’m going to continue to be in Hibernation much of this year while working on the book, but as long as the entire Internet rolled over and growled this morning, you can add my growl to the chorus.

Have a great 2012!


25 Years Ago Today

Our first date.

Happy Holidays, Everyone!


Notes from Hibernation

Things are pretty quiet here, while I concentrate on my graphic novel in the coming months.

Did want to take a moment though to acknowledge the unspeakably sad news that cartoonists Tom Hart and Leela Corman have lost their little girl, Rosalie Lightning. There’s a fund to contribute to, if you’d like to help with the practical aspects of the coming weeks, and of course, the condolences have been pouring in. This note by their old friend and mine Jon Lewis feels about right to me. These are deeply loved members of our community, and with good reason. Their beautiful family deserved a better road.


Well, Here’s an Awesome Gift Idea

The legendary Todd Klein (quite probably comics’ best all-time letterer, and an old pal of mine from my DC production department days) and artist Shawn McManus have released a truly unique comics gift for the upcoming holidays: A Freelancer Game Board!

Order yours here, learn more about the creation of the board here, and get a closer look here.
