About time for an update, huh? Here's what's on the slate for this year, tentatively:
*THE ANCIENT BOOK OF SEX AND SCIENCE will hit just before San Diego Comic Con with a premiere art gala at NUCLEUS. This is the second of 4 planned ANCIENT BOOKS, featuring me, Lou Romano, Don Shank, and Nate Wragg. Coffee table goodness, we promise. Dates to be announced soon.
*TEN AGAINST THE WORLD is in the works, I'm pleased to officially announce. It's a 160 (or so) page Kirby/Toth-inspired monster comic set in the 1950's, lots of comic book fun I'm certain Wertham would love. There's a teaser above. It's being produced entirely in Photoshop on my Cintique, no pencils, just straight digital black, white, and blue, as an experiment in economics and speed. I'm about 40 pages in at this point. Keep your eyes and ears open for this one, as it may actually hit initially in online installments. Stay tuned.
*MAGIC PICKLE AND THE GARDEN OF EVIL and a fifth MAGIC PICKLE book will launch this year from Scholastic. The series is doing incredibly well, I'm happy to say. Buy copies for the kids in your life today!
*AFTERWORKS 3 is well under way with a hope to hit for SD as well. I'll have a short story, THE BUILD, about the building of my 1951 Ford truck. Lots of Pixar talent involved, of course, with a stunning cover by Lou Romano.
*There's a TIGER plush planned for San Diego, being designed by Anna Chambers.
*Convention appearance schedule to be posted soon, but look for me at Emerald City in Seattle the first weekend of April.
More soon! Thanks to everyone for an incredible 2008. Your support means the world.
