Essex County Vol.3: The Country Nurse Launches at San Diego!


It's been a while since I've posted, I've been really putting the pedal to the metal trying to get a good chunk of my upcoming DC/Vertigo graphic novel THE NOBODY in the can before I head off to The San Diego Comicon next week.

As of today I've got 69-pages of the 144-page book pencilled, inked and ready to go. I'll probably be posting a few sneak peek pages soon, just need to clear it with DC legal first.

As for San Diego, I will be signing a the Top Shelf booth during the majority of the show (check out Top Shelf's site for a full list of their attending cartoonists). The GREAT news is that we will have copies of Essex County Vol.3: The Country Nurse for sale, hot off the press! This will be the first time I've debuted a book at a Con, and I'm pretty excited.

And, speaking of volume 3, the first review hit the web today. Check out Steve Duin's review at The Oregonian.

I will also have copies of the two limited edition Essex County Mini-comics, and original artwork for sale at the show, and of course will be doing sketches and signing, so please stop by and see me!
