Austin Books & Comics Labor Day Sale

This is pretty awesome right here.

I’m not signing at the shop this weekend but I will be there shopping, so if you see me and want any comics defaced, just let me know!

Rogues Gallery signing

I thought I’d mentioned this here, but turns out I completely forgot. Tomorrow, from 1-4PM on Saturday, August 27th, I’ll be doing a signing at Rogues Gallery in Round Rock. But I won’t be alone!

I’ll be signing alongside the stalwart Matthew Sturges and the debonaire Kristian Donaldson. That’s three, three, THREE Vertigo creators for the price of one! (Or, in other words, “free.”) Some come on by, why don’t you?

Captain Blue Hen Comics

This coming Friday, August 19th, I’ll be doing a store signing for the good peopel of Captain Blue Hen Comics in Newark, Delaware. Joining me is the lovely and talented Chrissie Zullo, the artist who’s made the covers of both Cinderella miniseries look so fantastic.

The signing is scheduled to run from 5pm-7:30pm. For directions or more information, visit the Captain Blue Hen Comics site.

Baltimore Comic-Con!

Hey, remember when I used to update my blog more than once every two or three months? Yeah, those were good times.

Seems like these days I only post something new here when I’m announcing that I’m going to be at some convention or store signing or something. Sheesh

Speaking of which, have I mentioned that I’ll be at Baltimore Comic-Con, August 20th and 21st?

I did the Baltimore Comic-Con for the first time last year, and it immediately became one of my favorite conventions. I have every confidence that this year will be just as good. If you’re going to be there, come by and say howdy. And if you’re in the area and aren’t already planning to go, then why the heck not?

I’m doing signings on Saturday and Sunday at the BOOM! Studios booth from 1PM-2PM, and Saturday from 3PM-4PM I’ll be on the Legion of Super-Heroes panel with a bunch of guys who have way more reason to be up there than I do.

HeroesCon!

I attend a fair number of comic conventions in any given year, but I have to say that HeroesCon is my absolute favorite. And it’s just a few days away! If you’re going to be there, come by and say howdy, why don’t you?

 

 I’ll be set up at table AA-608 (right next to my collaborator on Starborn, Khary Randolph, as it happens!), and I’ll also be doing a panel on Saturday afternoon.

1:30 PM : Heroes Discussion Group #32—Cinderella-From Fabletown with Love
Room 207BCD

Please schedule your weekend properly so you will have time to join writer Chris Roberson and cover artist, Charlotte’s own Chrissie Zullo as they discuss everyone’s favorite secret agent and shoe provocateur. At last year’s HeroesCon we discussed Fables: 1001 Nights of Snowfall. This will be the perfect follow-up.
Copies of the book will be available after the discusion for brief signing.

If I’m not at my table or at that panel, I’ll be in line at Starbucks, outside having a cigarette, or having a drink in the hotel bar, so come and try to find me there.

Vegas!

Superman #711 Variant Cover by Dave Johnson

Did you get a chance to pick up Superman #711 yesterday, in which Superman visits Provo, Austin AND Las Vegas (to say nothing of the Arctic Circle)?

Well, speaking of Vegas…

This weekend, Allison and I are heading to Las Vegas ourselves, for a quick surgical-strike of a visit.

The fine folks at Maximum Comics were nice enough to invite us for a signing on Saturday, May 14th from 12PM to 4PM. But that isn’t all.

Our good friends and artists extraordinaire, Mike and Laura Allred will also be there! It’s going to be AWESOME!

So if you are in the area, come on by and say hi!

More Free Elric!

Hey, did you miss out on the Elric: The Balance Lost prologue at FCBD last Saturday? Couldn’t make it to a comic shop, or they ran out before you got there? Well, friend, have I got good news for you…

The fine folks at BOOM! Studios have put the whole dang thing online. That’s even freer than free!

Head over to Comic Book Resources, and give it a read. Heck, read it twice, it’s free!

Free Elric!

Many apologies for my long silence, everybody. It’s been… sheesh, two months since I last posted to my blog. Oy.

Well, I’ll try to be a bit more timely with the updates in future, and today I’ve got an update that’s especially timely. Tomorrow, May 7th, is Free Comic Book Day, when comic shops all over the place give out scads of new comics for free. Most of the free offerings are introductory issues, “jumping-on points” as they’re called. And there’s one point in particular that I hope you consider jumping on.

 This summer sees the launch of a new 12 issue miniseries that represents a dream come true for me, Elric: The Balance Lost. As an ardent fan of the works of Michael Moorcock for the better part of three decades, the chance to add a tiny bit to the continuing story of the Eternal Champion and the Multiverse is, well, it’s a dream come true. And with art by Francesco Biagini and colors by Stephen Downer, the series is going to look amazing.

A 10-page prologue to Elric: The Balance Lost is one of BOOM! Studios offerings for Free Comic Book Day, so if you’re on the fence about picking up the series this summer, you can get the free prologue and try it on or size. Heck, you can even read the first few pages right now online and decide if you want to pick up the free thing tomorrow. What do you have to lose?!

And if you’re in the Austin area and want to get a free copy defaced by me, I’ll be signing at Austin Books & Comics from 10AM to 5PM. Come on by and say howdy, why don’t you?

ECCC

I don’t think I’ve mentioned it here, but I’ll be in Seattle this weekend for the Emerald City Comic Convention. I went last year for the first time and had a BLAST, so I’m really looking forward to it.
