I’m thrilled to hear that my Popula essay “About Face” is an Ignatz Awards nominee for Outstanding Online Comic!

If you’re attending SPX in September, you may cast your votes for the Ignatz Awards on Saturday the 14th— winners will be announced at that evening’s Ignatz ceremony.

There’s such outstanding work among the nominees this year. Please check out everyone’s work— I’m so lucky to be able to make comics amidst all this talent and vision.

(theree seems to be a server problem with SPX/Ignatz site, so I’ll update this soon with proper links.)

SMALL PRESS EXPO this weekend!

It's time again for my favorite comics show of the year: Small Press Expo, held September 17-18 at the Marriott North Bethesda in (you guessed it) North Bethesda, MD!

I'll be slangin' books at the Top Shelf booth (tables W64-W67) all weekend, with "official" signings both days as well. Here's a list of what I'll be up to:

* Signing at Top Shelf booth, Saturday 1-3 pm.

* MARCH panel w/ Andrew Aydin and me, moderated by Julian Lytle. (Saturday 4-5pm, White Oak Room)

* Signing at Top Shelf booth, Saturday 5-6:30pm.

* I'll be hosting the beloved Ignatz Awards Ceremony-- Saturday at 9:30pm!

* Signing at Top Shelf booth, Sunday 1:30-3:30pm.

See you there!

MARCH is an Ignatz Award nominee!

I'm honored to hear that March (written by John Lewis & Andrew Aydin, and drawn by me) is an Ignatz Award nominee for Outstanding Series!

Voting will take place on Saturday, September 19th on-site at the Small Press Expo in North Bethesda, MD, and winners will be announced that evening. The Ignatz Awards are very special to me-- not only were they the first to put my work on the radar in many respects back in 2008, but their voting structure is perhaps the only in comincs to utilize a direct democratic method, and it's always interesting and exciting to see what's happening on the SPX show floor, in real time, as reflected in the awards. Thanks so much again-- it's an honor to be nominated for the coveted brick!

Ignatz win!

I just returned from the legendary SPX in Maryland, where I am honored to announce I received the Ignatz Award for Outstanding Artist! Thanks so much, fellow comic book folk. As always, I left SPX feeling energized about the comics community, and ready to tackle some new and exciting work.
