LA Times Book Prize finalist, doggies!

hello! I'm fidgety and flattered to announce that Swallow Me Whole is a finalist for the LA Times Book Prize! (You can read the announcement here.) Even more preposterous, it's the only comic since Art Spiegelman's Maus to be nominated for the award, in any category! eek! I'll be appearing at the Hi De Ho Comics table during the LA Times Festival of Books on April 25-26, if you wanna say hello..!

Also, my publisher Top Shelf is having a special offer through April 26th-- If you order Swallow Me Whole from them, you get a copy of Please Release for a penny!
