If you’re attending this fun event, please stop by to say “hi” and have all of your signed THE AIRLESS YEAR, ERRAND BOYS, THE ONCE AND FUTURE QUEEN, AMELIA COLE, CULTURE’S SKELETON, TURN TO PAGE NEVER, and NEVER ENDING needs met!
This is exciting to finally be able to share! Adam P. Knave, Nick Brokenshire, Frank Cvetkovic, and I have a lil’ post-apocalyptic holiday story in issue 297 of the famed anthology comic magazine HEAVY METAL! Not only is it great to be part of the legacy that is HEAVY METAL, but it also reunites THE ONCE AND FUTURE QUEEN creative team, even original editor and series champion Hannah Means-Shannon, who is an editor/bigwig at HEAVY METAL.
The comic is called “Urban Developments,” and we had a lot of fun working on it. You can find a preview of it and the other stories in the issue by clicking here and/or the image below…
Preorder it from your local comic shop, bookstore, or wherever you buy HEAVY METAL!
…and I’ll be there at Artist Alley table L32 as part of The Comic Bug Pavilion!
Joining me at my table will be cartoonist Douglas Gauthier (pronounced “heysoupface“). He’ll have his zines, and I’ll have THE AMELIA COLE OMNIBUS, NEVER ENDING, THE BIGGER / BIGGEST BANG(s) for selling and signing– and a special free comic with each purchase!
In addition to the artist alley fun, I’ll be on a couple of panels:
Are you an independent comic book creator frustrated that your local comic shop doesn’t seem interested in carrying your comic book or supporting your career? Are you a comic shop owner feeling pressure from local creators to carry their self-published dreams when you have so many other bigger issues to worry about? Believe it or not, these two elements offer up a tremendous opportunity for SYNERGY! This can be a win win for BOTH of you and our panel of both comic shop owners AND creators will tell you how they’ve navigated themselves into a relationship of mutually assured SUCCESS! BRAVE NEW WORLD (Newhall, CA) owner Andy Liegl, HI DE HO COMICS owner Eddie DeAngelini, ASPEN COMICS Editor-In-Chief Vince Hernandez, Editor/Writer Barbara Kesel and Writer D.J. Kirkbride will be joined by THE COMIC BUG’s Mike Wellman in an insightful, progressive and problem-solving conversation on how YOU can get your books on the shelves of some of your favorite comic shops and how to help make your store enthusiastic to support! If you’re a local creator in the LA area, this is not a panel to miss!
