Road Trip!

Hi guys!

Wow, it's been a busy month. Okay, what do we talk about first?

Let's start with the boring stuff. That's always a good policy, right? We have dates and Diamond codes for both the issue 1 reprint and the issue 2 release. #1 is back out on April 1 and final order cutoff is this coming Monday, March 9. The code for that is JAN158233. #2 is on shelves on June 3 and the code for that is APR150542. Please do encourage your local comic shop proprietor to order lots of #1 reprints so that we don't run out of copies again and then you get #2 and you're all like "I don't remember what happened in #1, and now I have to pay 30 bucks for a copy on Ebay."

Okay, that wasn't so bad. Now for the fun stuff.

It is confirmed that I'll be doing a signing at Third Eye Comics in Annapolis from 11 AM to 1 PM on June 13.  For those of you who know Steve, you won't be surprised to hear that he's been just about the coolest guy ever during the planning of this thing. I liked him so much, I agreed to do a variant #1 cover just for his shop. This event is going to be off the hook, and there will probably be like strobe lights and dubstep and people dancing in cages that are hanging from the ceiling. That's how off the hook it will be.

Anyway, here is the variant cover. Does anybody want a poster of this? I really don't know if it's poster-worthy. Comment or Tweet me if you think this should be a thing:

For those of you who are unable to pick up this 'sclusie, you'll be happy to hear that both versions of the reprint also contain three completely astonishing new pinups from game art aces David Ryan Paul, Cory Allemeier, and Mike Bear, which I will tease here:

Man, I love those guys.

I will also be doing a signing at Comics Dungeon in Seattle on the day that issue 2 comes out --Wednesday, June 3 from 4 to 6 PM. I hope to see all my hometown friends there. If you are my friend, you WILL be there. This is how I will know who my real friends are. 

Next! I am also confirmed as a guest at HeroesCon in Charlotte, NC from June 19 to June 21. I'll be at Indie Island, which despite sounding remote and forbidding, is actually where all the cool kids will be hanging out. There will probably be dubstep and people dancing in cages.

I'll have as many copies of #1 and #2 that I can carry, and I'll also be selling several new posters, including this 30" x 24" behemoth:

Which in case you can't see it due to the blinding radiance of my visage, looks like this from the front:

And of course all of this stuff will be available for order at just as soon as I get my shipping tubes delivered.

What else, what else? Maybe that's everything for now. Oop. I think Ian is waking up. Okay, I'm off. See you in Charlotte!

  2. I agree. That would make an awesome poster! I really hope I can see you at Dungeon. Will you be selling the "behemoth" at you Dungeon signing or should I buy it from you online? I love it! I would really love to get it signed so I can hang it next to my signed Shoalin Cowboy poster. I think you are one the greatest artist and an all around inspiration in my book. I'm so excited to delve back into this world youve created :) thank you.
