Rose City Comic Con 2013

The second annual Rose City Comic Con was a great event– a huge turn-out of enthusiastic fans. For me: two days of non-stop conversations about… some sci-fi character I’ve been working on lately. Oh– and some fun commissions as well, viz:

 

Over-due update: Trekker Omnibus, Fall Conventions, Silence &Co GN

Lots going on! First, I just got my hands on the advanced copy of the mighty Trekker Omnibus, coming this August from Dark Horse (and me, of course). Over 320 pages, this collects all the existing Trekker stories, some in the original black and white, all scanned directly from the original art, some stories in brand-new color. It also features a terrific foreward by the one and only Gail Simone, and a “Skechbook” section displaying lots of rare and unseen Trekker images produced  over the years. I worked long and intensely with the folks at Dark Horse to make this package definitive, and I am super-happy with the results! You can pre-order it here, or find it in your favorite comic shop as of August 7, or get one direct from me at a convention appearance this fall. Speaking of which:

I am looking forward to my first appearance at the Baltimore Comic-Con, this September 7-8! This convention has a terrific reputation as being one of the best. Can’t wait to experience it. And I’ll also be at the also excellently-run Rose City Comic-Con in Portland later in Sept 21-22, so plenty of fun that month!

Lastly, a long time in the coming is the graphic novel Silence & Co that I’ve illustrated for Gur Beshemish and Crystal Publications. It’s a gloriously pulpy modern crime noir tale getting terrific reviews, and on sale now!

Roce City Comic-Con scheduled for September!

With the Emerald City Comic Con coming up next weekend, I am getting in the convention season mood. Which works out nicely, since things are just being put in to place for the first annual Rose City Comic-Con, coming this fall right in my hometown of Portland, Oregon. I jumped at the chance to feature a new drawing of Trekker (from the brand-new tale that I am just finishing up at the moment) in this flyer to help promote the event. Portland is boiling over with talented comic creators, both independent and mainstream. And we are all excited to help with the launching of a new, major convention right in our own collective back yard! So, for those who can’t make it to Seattle next weekend, find your way to Portland this September. I will be signing, sketching and showing off shamelessly at BOTH shows.
