I'm a couple a weeks late with this, but, if you haven't seen it yet, Blog Flume is a new comics blog from Buenaventura Press and Friends.
Man, reading it makes me wanna blog more. But pretty much all my spare time and energy is devoted to doing Injury. We leave it all on the bristol if you know what I mean. So I'm really glad these guys have gotten the blog flume rolling. Alone, any one of these men could kick ass at musing and linking. But together...? It beggars the imagination.

Kung fu knives and guts

Jog posted a crazy essay about Hong Kong comics legend Tony Wong here. Lotsa great, gory covers as well! Wow, man! I love this paragraph:
Before you, says the image, waits a kingdom of untethered entertainment. Comics with a maniac in charge, and he's got a message for YOU. One that promises the glory of another nation's pop, to infest the one that's here. I suppose that's the message of all pop comics from outside cultures - but Jademan Wong made it all seem to me like the product of a man's sick, wonderful personality, the eccentric alive and validated and the fore of a mass culture just some water away.

Injury #2 in progress

I thought I'd give you guys a peek at my cover sketches. These are two color treatments for the front cover. I need to get it done asap so I'll post the final in the next day or two. Let me know what you think. The book should be in stores some time in March, but don't quote me on that.
HEY - If you want to get a letter into the letters column or vote for or against Heracles, you'd better get on the stick.

Injury '07 Tour continues: SPX and Star Clipper

This weekend I'll be at the Small Press eXpo in the D.C. area. Mardou and I will be helping out at the Buenaventura table, and I'll be signing Injuries. Swing by and say hi if you're going there. But - don't feel like you HAVE to say hi.

I'll be doing a signing for the debut of "Injury" next week at Star Clipper in the U-City Loop. This is the first time I'll be signing Injury here in town. Stop by if you haven't bought the book yet.

It'll be a group signing Wednesday October 17th from 5-8pm with me, John Porcellino, Dan Zettwoch and Kevin Huizenga. John Porcellino will also be giving a slideshow presentation at 6pm. St. Louis has had a banner year for indie comics talent passing thru. Please come out for it - it should be a blast.

Speaking of St Louis comics events - thanks to everyone who showed up for our panel at the Big Read in Clayton. I've never done one of those so sorry for any stammering or poorly constructed sentences.

Comic shops

Just retooled my little online shop here. Still kind of in progress but it works if you want to order stuff. I added Injury #1, the Injury Fashion Pin set, and a Classic Combo where you can order both at once on a sweet discount.
PLUS - for the first time, you can buy Mardou's Washing Machine and Whores of Mensa #3 online. The former is a new 16 page book by Mardou and the latter is an antho she edits that includes Ellen Lindner and Jeremy Dennis. I'll put up Jeff Wilson's brand new Sap #8 as well.

Also - I think Injury is in stores? Not entirely sure. Some hype-machine I am.

Scars for life

I dunno. Sometimes I come across comics art that just leads me to wonder: man, will I ever make something this cool? I just posted such an item in my long-neglected gallery of covers.

BP Shop

Injury is now for sale at the Buenaventura Shop. The first 100 sold are signed by me and Jason Robards. There' a bunch of other cool stuff over there as well. If you're interested in Injury buttons, I'll have those up on this site soon.

Sap and Chicago

Item! Those attending the Chicago Wizard-World can grab a copy of Injury #1 before it hits stores in September. Jason Robards will have some available at the Short Pants Press table in Artist Alley.

Plus! Injury family member Jeff Wilson just released Sap #8, the latest installment of his magnum opus. Get one from his site here.

Also - thanks to all of the San Diego con-goers who bought a copy of Injury or just stopped by the table. That show is like being inside a comics-themed pachinko machine. It's bottled insanity which makes for a great weekend, but for an artist, it's also a little unsettling to see the grinding wheels of the slurry pump itself.

SDCC bulletin

I'll be bringing new, limited edition Injury fashion pins to SAN DIEGO this week. If you're going to the con, make sure to swing by the Buenaventura Press table and pick some up to wear whilst reading Injury #1.
Thankx to Joel at 1x1 Art for making the pins of my dreams possible. Pin set hand made by Mr and Mrs COMICS at Injury HQ!

For those of you that do this sort of thing, you can order Injury at your local comics shop from the July issue of Previews.
I was gonna blog more but this weekend got away from me. My car is starting to fall apart and I'm replacing it one part at a time.

San Diego

Injury Comics Tour 2007: We'll be at "San Diego" this year (July 26-29). And by "we," I mean me and "Your Bloody Face" artist Jason Robards. We'll be at the Buenaventura Press booth either signing or taking people's money for hot B.P. titles like "Elvis Road" and the latest "Comic Art." Please stop by, say hello and for crying out loud, buy a copy of Injury #1!

Injury Preview

I just posted a quickie Injury preview. More to come.


Thanks to everyone who stopped by our table at Mocca. The weekend went so quick - I feel like there were a bunch of cool tables and people I never got to visit. For those of you that picked up Injury, let me know what you think! Or you can wait and get it when it arrives in shops in September (you can order in the July issue of Previews).
See ya

I'll be at MOCCA this weekend sharing a table with my wife, Mardou. I don't remember what the table number is but according to the map it's right next to the restrooms. So if you go for a whizz you'll probably see us. I'll also be over at the Buenaventura Press table sporadically.

Here it is

Click on the wolf to see the cover for the forthcoming Injury Comics. The book will debut at the MOCCA comics fest in New York later this month and will soon be available from Buenaventura Press.

News you can't use

I got bored with updating this blog so I haven't been doing it in a while. To be fair though, I've actually been really busy creatin' and haven't had much time to spare. Here's an update of what I've got going on:
My new book, Injury Comics #1 is being published by Buenaventura Press and will debut at Mocca in NYC in June. The book will be all new comics from me in collaboration with fellow StL cartoonists Jeff Wilson and Jason Robards. They both done South County proud!
This book essentially features manly stories about men's problems. One is about my cyborg character, Manleau, getting beaten up on the street, and the other is a cautionary drug tale acted out by junior high ne'er do well's.
Also, I'll have a contribution in the next issue of Kramers Ergot. I did one page. Wait, wait - it's one HUGE page. It's about the equivalent of ten of your earth pages. My comics page was so big I had to take it to a special place to scan it and those guys were barely able to handle it. Anyway - that's what I was working on the early months of this year. It took me two months but it will only count as ONE page toward my lifetime page count. Oh well. Nobody ever said this comics biz would be a walk in the park.
Watch this space for a sneak preview of the Injury cover!!

St. Louis Mag

LinkThere's a spotlight of local StL cartoonists in the June issue of St. Louis Magazine. It's got a picture of Nelly's manager on the cover. The picture above is just one quarter of a collab spread featuring Kevin Huizenga, Dan Zettwoch, Mardou and me. It's a great article with loads of insider info penned by local dean of the culture beat, Cliff Froelich. If you live in town, go grab one. I'll post a link if/when it shows up on their site.
