I won't be at Comicon this year, but I will be representin'.

Marvel v Capcom front

First up, I designed a limited edition t-shirt for Marvel vs. Capcom 3 (above is the front, below is the back).

Next, I have a drawing in the CBLDF/TFAW auction of Felicia Day as Codex (her alter-ego in the Guild). In addition to bidding on the original art, I think they printed a bunch of cards with this image that you can have Ms. Day sign.


And finally, last but not least...


Two items of note:

1. The Street Angel short film is screening on Thursday as part of Comicon's Independent Film Festival. If you're at the show and have an interest in seeing this film, now is your chance. We have no other screenings scheduled at this time so check it out while you can.

2. Street Angel is back in print from the fine folks at SLG. They went all out with this second printing, and the slick, coated paper makes a ton of difference. If you enjoyed our work on Afrodisiac and you've been wanting to check out Street Angel, you can grab a copy right from the publisher! Tell 'em we sent you, they'll like that! And while you're at SLG's booth, check out some of their other offerings. They publish a bunch of amazing books from classic Evan Dorkin and Jhonen Vasquez comics to new works from James Turner (Rex Libris, Warlord of Io), Faith Erin Hicks (Zombies Calling, War at Ellsmere), Ross Campbell (Shadoweyes), Diana Thung (Captain Long Ears).

The Return of the King

Afrodisiac returns to better comic book shop shelves across the nation - TODAY! Fresh off the presses, the new printing of the Afrodisiac is on uncoated paper this time out (a subtle but notable improvement in my opinion). So if you've been hearing good things, and want your own copy, you're in luck.

AIGA 50/50
Afrodisiac was selected in this year's AIGA 50/50 competition as an example of outstanding book design.

"This book is amazing, fun and impressive. It takes street smarts to college by offering thought-provoking styles and art."

Finally, for your Rambo pleasure, cartoonist superbadass, Ben Marra gets deep inside Rambo II with Brandon Soderberg. They didn't teach this kind of stuff at my school!

Duncan the Wonder Dog

Adhouse Books (Afrodisiac's publisher) has a new book ready for pre-orders from your local comic book store. It is called Duncan the Wonder Dog and it's written and drawn by Xeric Award-winning cartoonist, Adam Hines.

This is a large book (400 pages) and Adhouse has posted a nice chunk of it for preview reading. I thought the preview was great! So if you have a few minutes to waste at work or on the bus, give this a look!

And if you enjoy boxing (Raging Bull, George Bellows' boxing paintings, On the Waterfront, etc.), I think you'll love this preview.

George Bellows Stag at Sharky's (1909)

Here are book details:

What if animals could talk? Would some of them form a militant group in reaction to how humans treat them? Would humans treat them different? Come explore this dense tome of an alternate universe where the lavish renderings recall Dave McKean. 2009 Xeric winning Duncan the Wonder Dog WILL be one of the most talked about books of 2010.
