Eisner Nomination; Full Story Posted Online

The story I did with Jeff Wilson for Injury #4, "A Birdsong Shatters the Still," just got nominated for an Eisner in the category of "Best Short Story." We're both freaked and honored to be in consideration for this award. If you're a comics pro and voting in the Eisners, please consider voting for us.

In honor of that, we've posted the story online at What Things Do.

If you're too busy and just want the short version, here goes. A group of teens get stoned before reporting to detention. They have to stay quiet. That's pretty much it. Now go vote.

BTW: Michael Kupperman (Tales Designed to Thrizzle) has a story up for the same award. I love his stuff. His story is posted here.

Injury 4sure

I'm kinda late updating this but the book is printed and looks awesome. I'm working on getting all the Kickstarter orders fulfilled. Alternative Comics kicked in some additional funding to print extra copies and get the book better distribution. It should start hitting comic store shelves in a few weeks, and it's already available from Wow Cool, amazon, and me personally. We're gonna do posters very soon. INJURY 4. COMICS CURRENCY. Enjoy.

Teenagers from Mars

Special behind the scenes look at the making of. It took me forever to come up with a cover for this issue. Out of practice, I guess. I like to do covers that aren't directly related to the contents, but maybe that's a bad idea for sales. You could say that this one is tangentially related.
