C2E2 2013

Mr. Miracle and Big Barda

So, yeah, I don't know.  I don't know, I guess I might go.  It's just that... I don't know.  I don't really have anything to sell or promote. I mean, everything I'm working on is being worked on, so nothing on the book stands to promote.

Sigh: FUNRAMA #3 was very much going to be ready for this show and well, I just got overloaded with work as you could probably tell. It half-done though. Just not yet.

So, I guess the only reason I'm going is to do sketches. And eat pizza? Maybe go to the art museum? Does the Fireside Bowl still exist?   So if you want a sketch/commission it's probably a good time to get on that if you want one. I can't promise anything but I don't take money upfront. I don't know, it might be my only convention besides the local one. Maybe I'm just not into conventions right now? I don't know, I'll have to investigate that further.

Oh yeah......Artist Alley Table O17.

I'm proud to say that Chapter 2 of our free webcomic COCOTTE has begun!

I cringe at the idea of calling it a "foodie comic". Food is the main ingredient. It's about working in a professional kitchen...but much more! We work hard at this and we're proud of it so far. Please check it out. Thank you.

Star Wars #7



Brian Wood (W), Ryan Kelly (A), Dan Parsons (I), Gabe Eltaeb (C), and Rodolfo Migliari (Cover)
On sale July 10
FC, 32 pages
Princess Leia takes the Rebels’ secret mission to the next level! Playing it safe has gotten them nowhere, and they are running out of resources and time. What’s the fastest way to get inside info on the Empire? Have your top pilots get themselves captured!
• Ryan Kelly, the artist from Brian Wood’s Local series, joins the Star Wars team!
“From the first scene in this new series, it is not hard to imagine playing Star Wars action figures with Wood sometime back in my childhood. That unbridled imagination, energy and excitement is exactly what Wood brings to this story.” –Comic Book Resources

I'm really excited to be joining the Star Wars team as Penciler for three issues starting in July. Also, It's great to be working with Brian again (even as our comic, Anthem, is on temporary hiatus). He has really captured the fun and adventure of the original trilogy in this book.
Obviously, it would have been great to do full art, but I opted for pencils-only as it was just impossible to do full art while still drawing Saucer Country and all my other projects. But, I'm super excited to be working with inker Dan Parsons, who has done plenty of Star Wars work, I do believe. And look at that awesome Migliari cover. I've always liked his work. 
Anyway, I'm drawing issues #7-9 and I hope you check out the series. I do believe the first trade collection is coming out about the same time as my issue, so you can catch up if you need to.
Here's some small details of my pencils for the upcoming issues:

Darth Vader

Emperor Palpatine

Luke Skywalker


Princess Leia
