Publishers Weekly interview about COME AGAIN

Here's a brief interview I did at Publishers Weekly about the concept and creation of my forthcoming book, Come Again.

If you'll be at the ALA conference in New Orleans this weekend, check out advance copies of the book at the Top Shelf/IDW booth! It'll be released in comic book shops on July 11th, and bookstores/online August 7th.

You can pre-order the book from Amazon here, or directly from me here.

COME AGAIN is done!


At long last, I'm done drawing Come Again! It's been 7 years of work amidst 1 marriage, 2 kids, 3 houses, 4 pets, and 5 or 6 books along the way.

This is my favorite book I've ever made, and I'm looking forward to having it out in the world-- I'll be doing a slideshow talk about the book's path and influences on February 11th at the American Library Association's Midwinter Conference in Denver, CO, and should be publicly revealing the cover around the same time.

Come Again will debut from Top Shelf/IDW on July 19th at Comic-Con International in San Diego-- I'll be there all weekend to sign, and have a bunch of travels lined up for the rest of the year as the book hits the stands. See you there, and stay tuned for more!
