NATE POWELL'S OMNIBOX collection coming in June!

I'm pleased to announce that Top Shelf/IDW are releasing a boxed set collecting a decade's worth of my creator-owned work-- Swallow Me Whole, Any Empire, and You Don't Say-- hopefully debuting at TCAF in May, and available in stores in June.

Here's Top Shelf's official announcement about the 700-page Omnibox.

For those mostly familiar with my work on the March trilogy, here's a fantastic diving-in point to explore the rest of my stories. Thanks!

Toronto Comic Arts Festival this weekend!

I'll be in Toronto for TCAF this weekend (May 10-11), signing books at the Top Shelf booth (#228-230; on the 2nd floor, straight back as you enter the big exhibitors' room).

I'll also be a part of this panel on Sunday afternoon:

History/Nonfiction Comics
12:15-1:15pm, at Marriott 100
It could be argued that contemporary graphic novels broken into the mainstream literary world thanks to their unique ability to vividly recount the best and the worst of the human experience through autobiography, memoir, and history. Join moderator Brigid Alverson (Comic Book Resources) as she interviews some of the top contributors to the genre, including Nick Abadzis (The Cigar that Fell in Love with a Pipe), Meags Fitzgerald (Photobooth: A Biography), Nate Powell (March), Diana Tamblyn (Gerald Bull and the Supergun) and Nick Bertozzi (Lewis and Clark), and Tyrell Cannon (Victus). Discover how to consider, collect, and curate real-life tales of times past to make them new again!

See you there!
