I've been pretty delinquent about posting here and it's a shame because there's been a lot going on and a lot to tell. This past weekend Greg Espinoza (my Pug collaborator) and I were lucky enough to have a booth at the inaugural Image Comics Expo in my home town of Oakland. For three days we met with fans, retailers, and fellow comics professionals, sold books, and had a grand old time. I had with me the galley of my new Vertigo GN, Gone to Amerikay, drawn by the incomparable Colleen Doran, and everyone I showed it to was blown away by the work of Colleen and our fabulous colourist Jose Villarrubia.
Which brings me to a segue -- Gone to Amerikay will be hitting stores on March 28. Between then and now, I'll be posting up a bunch of links on this page as press stuff starts to appear. I'll also shortly be making an announcement about the first official signing for the book, which will take place in advance of the release date.
And, in an entirely different arena -- just a couple of weeks from now I'll be in St. Louis working with two gods of rock and stage, Stew and Heidi Rodewald, on the musical version of Stagger Lee. If you've never seen Stew and Heidi's incredible musical Passing Strange, do yourself a large favour and click on that link and get it now. With noted director Amanda Dehnert, we'll be workshopping the play and presented a work-in-progress reading on March 15 at the Repertory Theatre of St. Louis, as part of their Ignite! festival. Tickets are on sale now -- if you're going to be in St. Louis on March 15, you have an opportunity for a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
That's all I've got right now, but there will be much more coming this next month.
