In less than a month, Human Body Theater will be making its debut(t)! Have you ever wanted to read a 240-page comic book about your very own fantastic human body? Well, now you can. This book includes classic hits like “Why Do We Yawn?”, “How Does a Cut Get Infected?” and “Where Do Farts Come From?”. There are elaborate dance routines by oxygen molecules in tutus and a chorus line of infectious diseases (because I though everyone would want to see a bacterium in fishnet stockings).
I’ll be posting some teasers from the book over the next few months, so stay tuned!
Greetings, meat machines! Happy (belated) Valentine's Day. While I do not condone a holiday filled with waxy, cheap chocolates, chalky candy hearts, and sappy poems, I DO fully support cardiovascular health! BOOYEAH. So, take your heart on a date. Personally, I took mine for a brisk two-hour shoveling of snow, followed by a 5-mile walk in said snow. It sure beats (ha!) staying in and eating bad chocolate.
Boom! Studios just announced issue #25 of the Bravest Warriors comic, and I got to do one of the back-up covers! The book is written by Kate Leth and drawn by Ian McGinty, with an incentive cover by Chip Zdarsky. It'll be out in October, but why not feast your eyes upon it now? More info over on Kate's tumblr.
Well, 2013 sure is flying by. Apologies for the lack of posts...here's a quick update of what's been going on:
Stuff that came out:
Batman Black and White #1
I wrote an 8-page story (drawn by Mr. Quinones) in this amazing anthology!
Batman '66 #3
I was the colorist for Joe Quinones' Joker story (written by Jeff Parker).
Stuff that happened:
M.I.C.E. was AWESOME! I love that we've got a great little local comics expo in the Boston area; thanks to everyone who stopped by to say "hi" or came to my panel/workshop!
What's up next:
I got to color this sweet RoboCop cover that Joe did for NYCC (we've been collaborating a bunch recently, can you tell?):
New York Comic Con! I will be there Thursday and Friday! I don't have a table in Artist's Alley, but I will be doing signings at First Second and Boom! Studios. Here's the schedule:
Thursday: Boom! Studios ---- Booth 1344
5:30 - 6:30 signing with Joe Quinones
Friday: Boom! Studios ---- Booth 1344
1:00 - 2:00 signing with Joe Quinones
First Second Books ---- Booth 2237
3:00 PM signing
Other than that, I'll be walking around the con on those two days...
And a big giant thanks to everyone who has bought/read Primates! I'll have some news about the next big project I'm working on soon (along with some updates about some fun little projects)! Okeedokes, I think that's it (for now)!
Primates is officially out! If you like science, or comics (or both), please check it out. I've been working on this book with Jim Ottaviani and First Second Books for 5 years, so I am very excited to finally welcome it into the word.
All this week, I'll be posting Primate-related things. So bear with me. Or rather, "ape" with me.
If you have any questions about the book, feel free to ask!
Primates' release date - June 11th - is just a few short weeks away! I've added a list of events on the side, and I'll be posting a lot about the book. Jim's got fun stuff over on his blog (with more Michigan-centric events). So, I sure hope you all like Great Apes.
Here's a piece that both Jim and I wrote for Orion Magazine's blog. Look for more Primates-related articles soon!
Primates isn't officially out yet, but I have 10 copies of the book that I'm giving away for free. There's a slight catch; if you want a book, you have to do a little work (I promise that it's FUN work). Come see me for more info!
And I'll have a bunch of other stuff (books and prints):
Tomorrow (Saturday May 4th) is Free Comic Book Day! Joe and I (along with a bunch of other cool comics peeps) are celebrating this joyous occasion at Acme Comics in Greensboro, NC. If you're in the area, stop by anytime between 10 AM and 5 PM for a free sketch! I'll also have prints for sale, as well as a preview copy of Primates for you to lay your eyeballz on.
If you're not in the area, be sure to pick up the Free Spongebob Comic! It's got a one-page comic about camouflage (by yours truly).
