I just picked up the Showcase Presents: The Flash Vol.1 collection, and was inspired to do a couple of new sketches this afternoon. When I think of the Silver Age I always think immediately of The Flash by Infantino. To me no other stories better epitomize that great blend of sci-fi and super-heroics of the 50's and 60's. And The Flash's costume design is hands down the best ever...simple, iconic and bright!

I have been insanely busy lately, mostly buying a house with my lovely wife! In addition I finally finished Essex County Volume 2: Ghost Stories, and sent it off to Chris and Brett at Top Shelf. It's slated for a September release. Ghost Stories took me a year and a half to draw, and was by far the most challenging project I've undertaken. I feel burnt out and relieved that it's over...and I think and hope that it is a huge leap forward for me as a cartoonist.
On another note, Soft Instruments, my web comic is stalled indefinitely, until my life slows down a bit. I'll get back to it when I can, that's really all I can say at this point.
I will be signing and displaying original artwork from Tales and Ghost Stories at Art In The Park in Windsor Ontario (that's in the real Essex County folks) June 2nd-3rd. Then I'll be at MoCCA in New York June 9-10. So, stop by and see me at the Top Shelf Booth, I'll sketch and sign for you!
Finally, if you haven't read Garage Band by Gipi from First second Books, do it. Definitely a contender for the best Graphic Novel of the year. I am in awe of this guys talent.
