San Diego, Here I Come!

Yes, I will be in San Diego for Comic Con next week and I'm pleased to announce that I have a table in the Image Island section this year, booth 2729! I'll be sharing with David Finch, Sana Takeda of Drain, and Ryusuke Hamamoto, artist of Evangelion and the soon to be released Compass. We'll actually be selling an SDCC exclusive Compass Zero dojinshi at the show! So that's where I'll be hanging my hat for most of the show and I'll have plenty of copies of all my Image and Marvel books on hand for sale and signing. Please stop by and see us!!

As for panels, I'll be attending and speaking at the following ones...

Thursday - Mondo Marvel at 4:45PM - Details of ChesterQuest to be announced!

Friday - Cup O' Joe at 11:45AM and the Image Panel at 1:30PM

Saturday - the Aspen Panel at 1:30PM for a special announcement!

Sunday - the X-Men Panel at 11:45AM

And I have one signing at the Marvel booth at 3PM on Thursday with David Finch as well as Tommy Ohtsuka (Slayers, Marvel Mangaverse) and Gurihiru (Power Pack) who are both flying in from Japan!

And you'll always be able to find me at the bar at Hyatt in the evenings, I'm sure.

Hope to see you all there!

Legion of Mosters: Morbius

David Finch and I continue our new tradition of collaborating on a short story at least once a year with our 2007 offering, a Dracula and Lilith story in Legion of Monsters: Morbius. It goes on sale in two weeks on July 18th and if you missed it, your local comic shop can still order it using code MAR072091. Brendan Cahill and Michael Gaydos also offer up a very cool Morbius story in this issue as well.

Here's a sneak peak at the cover, by Greg Land, and a couple pages of the Finch goodness that you can expect inside...

Spider-Man Fairy Tales 2 - On Sale Now!

Sorry this post is coming your way a few days late, but I was out of the country and couldn't get around to properly posting till today.

The second issue of the Spider-Man Fairy Tales went on sale this past Wednesday and should be waiting for you on the shelves of your favorite comic book stores right now. This issue looks at the legend of Anansi the Spider-God with "Marvelous" twist. It was beautifully illustrated by the amazing Niko Henrichon of Pride of Baghdad fame.

Here's a peek at the cover...

And a preview of the interior art can be found here...

Thanks for reading!
