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.)

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!


SPX time this weekend!

If you're in the DC area, come out to the Small Press Expo in North Bethesda, MD this weekend (Sept. 15th, 11am-7pm / Sept. 16th, 12-6pm)! It's at the Bethesda North Marriott Hotel & Conference Center (5701 Marinelli Road). I'll be at Table J14, in my usual spot across from Top Shelf Productions. 

I'll have tons of books, original artwork, and other stuff for sale. SPX is personally my favorite comics event in North America, and this month marks my 20th anniversary of publishing comics. See you there!
