Issue 2 of my new series By Night is out today. If issue 1 was a grounded look at two young women who have come back home from university because there was nothing else to do with their lives, issue 2 is the true start of their loopy journeys to a mad pocket universe… and some of the same stuff that was in issue 1. That’s the By Night way. There’s more brilliant art by CHRISTINE LARSEN (pencils & inks) and SARAH STERN (colours), with letters by JIM CAMPBELL.
If you’re a Comixology user/Comixology Unlimited subscriber, there’s a proper 40-page Shelley Winters story (now at a low low price) you may have missed - the 2017 Holiday Special (drawn by rising star Jenn St-Onge). [It’s also now in the Read More...
The new issue of Giant Days is out today (July 4th), featuring the return of 1) Ed Gemmell and 2) artist MAX SARIN! Thank you for taking us all the way to 40 issues, a major milestone for an indie book in 2018.
Get Giant Days 40 in comic shops or on Comixology. It’s a good one!
The current story ends next Friday, after which I’m going to take a little time off Scary Go Round. Writing two monthly books as well as the webcomic has tapped me out. I thought I could freestyle the year out but the ideas I have left for SGR are stretched too thin. Sorry everyone - I love drawing comics, I love publishing this way, and I love the daily conversation with readers, but I’m pretty sure I’ve reached the end of my personality and I need to rebuild it.
The break shouldn’t be too long but I won’t come back until I have a good stockpile of stories for you.
There are two archival releases out today in comic shops and via Comixology, one for each of my series.
First up: Bad Machinery 5: Case Of The Fire Inside POCKET EDITION! A new format and a new cover for the Eisner-nominated tale. From Oni Press!
And from Boom! Box, GIANT DAYS: EXTRA CREDIT Vol 1! Containing both 40-page holiday specials (with art by LISSA TREIMAN and CAANAN GRALL in 2016 and JENN ST-ONGE in 2017), plus my two shorts for the Boom! Box Mix Tape anthology, and the only appearance in print of DESTROY HISTORY, featuring the tale of Hedy Lamarr’s contribution to the war effort. It’s a bumper collection and it rounds up a lot of stuff I really like. Enjoy!
