8-page preview and solicitation for YOU DON'T SAY



My new book You Don't Say, collecting my shorter work from 2004-2013, is in the Diamond catalog (page 159) to hit shelves this May! It features a ton of out-of-print, unpublished, and never-before-available-in-English comics (including collaborations with Rachel Bormann-Powell, Al Burian, and kinda Pretty Girls Make Graves), and is the first official release under the new Top Shelf/ IDW partnership.

Here's Top Shelf's press release about it, which also features an 8-page preview.

I'll be opening up direct pre-orders from my site in the next month-- more info soon!

new comic with AL BURIAN in RUNNER RUNNER this spring!

I'm pleased to announce that work is finished on a new 10-page comic called "Unchained", written by beloved writer/musician/cartoonist Al Burian (Burn Collector, Natural Disaster, Milemarker, Challenger, Hellbender) and drawn by me. It'll be published by Tugboat Press in the spring, as part of their Runner Runner anthology.

This story marks the first time Al and I have collaborated since the story "Scrubs" from Walkie Talkie #1 back in 2000 (reprinted in Sounds Of Your Name). Back in 1997, Al's comic The Long Walk Nowhere (now reprinted in Things Are Meaning Less) completely opened up my perspective on what stories to tell with comics, how, and why. Make it count. Pay attention to the surroundings that made you who you are. I'm honored to work together again!

In Progress.

Here's the title spread from March, written by Congressman John Lewis & Andrew Aydin and drawn by me.



And here's a little past-present-future-- the top row is all the books or stories I've had published from 1992-2012. The bottom row is pages and scripts for all the books I'm currently working on (the March trilogy, Rick Riordan's The Lost Hero adapted by Robert Venditti, my next solo graphic novel Cover, a short comic written by Al Burian for Tugboat Press's Free Comic Book Day release, and new short stories for the You Don't Say collection.)
