Q & A on NY Post's Parallel Worlds Blog

Dan Greenfield at the New York Post's Parallel Worlds blog (a comic devoted to fresh comics news) gave my veteran comic project a nice write-up. I answer some questions and shamelessly namedrop all the beautiful people I have met on the journey.

"They've definitely thought a lot about what their service means to them and how it shapes who they are; to me, that's where the story is."

You can read it here. Thanks Dan and Dean!

Post-Grand Comics Festival Review

I had a great time at the inaugural edition of the Grand Comics Festival, and am happy to table again next year, if afforded the opportunity. After reading Kenan Rubenstein's amazingly thorough blog post, with nearly David Foster Wallace-esque use of footnotes, I scrapped the idea to cover the event in full detail, instead hoping you'll read his post to glean just how fabulous it was. Massive props and thanks to Pat Dorian, who single-handedly brought together many incongruous parts to form an amazing show. For further reading and more photo-ogling there's also a great write up on The Comics Beat here.

Grand Comics Festival + Chicago Alternative Comics Expo

I'm tabling at the Grand Comics Festival this Saturday and Sunday, June 8th and 9th in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Come check out my newest veteran comics stories! If you missed me at the Brooklyn Zine Fest, this is a great chance to get copies of the color veteran comics I printed in March.

I'm tabling at the Chicago Alternative Comics Expo in two weeks, June 15th and 16th. It's my first time in Chicago, I'm looking forward to seeing all the incredibly talented comics creators there. I planned to debut Invisible Wounds, a 16 page story about an Iraq War Army veteran who is diagnosed with PTSD, but the debut has been pushed back to September for SPX. I will have brand new copies of Where Eden Once Stood, my new color collection of three veteran stories, and a small batch of the second printing of the popular mini comic, City Chickens.
