Spring 2022 signings & conventions!

It’s been too long since I’ve had some reasons to get out of the house and scribble my name on some comics, but the wait is nearly over!

On Wednesday April 13, I’ll be at Pulp Fiction Comics in Culver City, CA for the release of the new Dark Horse Comics trade collection of Errand Boys!

Per the snazzy image above, I’ll be at Endgame Comics & Collectibles in Ventura, CA on Sunday April 24 to scribble my name on Errand Boys trades!

May 21 – 22, I’ll be returning to Comic Con Revolution Ontario for another weekend of artist alley tabling fun, as well as a panel or two. It should be a great time!

It’s so nice to be able to get out and about to celebrate the release of the Errand Boys trade, as well as comics in general!

Return to comic cons right at the end of 2021!

The return of Los Angeles Comic Con is coming up, December 3, 4, and 5, 2021! I’ll be there with creative powerhouse and new cat owner Doug Gauthier-– and I have it on good authority his better half, animation superstar Lauren Guerard Gauthier, will be stopping by to keep us in line, too!

Use the discount code KIRKBRIDE21 to receive 10% off your admission tickets, which can be purchased here.

Thanks, and I hope to have masked, vaccinated (maybe even BOOSTED), and safe fun with you good people at #ComicConLA!


And THEN, December 18 & 19, I’ll be at Comic Con Revolution Ontario for some Inland Empire comic convention fun!

Knave, El Anderson, and me is getting a nice trade collection from Dark Horse Comics in April 2022!

ERRAND BOYS
DEC210419

(W) D.J. Kirkbride (A/CA) Nikos Koutsis

In the future, a decent job is hard to find-especially if you’re a hard-worn scoundrel with commitment issues. Jace is a lifelong solo act running dangerous errands for the most questionable of clients. But when his thirteen-year-old half-human half-brother comes to live with him, he’s got two mouths to feed. Between evading the law, running from aliens, and jumping off skyscrapers, the only thing weirder than the vastness of space is family.

Collects the entire run of the comic book series Errand Boys plus new extras for the first time!
