San Diego Round-up

Had a great time in San Diego. Stayed in a room with Nate Powell and Jeffrey Brown. Congrats to Nate on his Eisner win for Best Graphic Novel! Swallow Me Whole is a wonderful book, and the win much deserved!

Got to catch up with Jason Aaron, and the rest of the Vertigo crew and did a couple of panels supporting Sweet Tooth. Matt Kindt and I had a blast hanging out. Matt snapped this photo of The JSA. The Atom's costume is fantastic. Back to work...

Sweet Tooth 2 Solicited For October!

Written by Jeff Lemire
Art and cover by Jeff Lemire

“I would crawl over broken glass to read this.” –Jason Aaron (SCALPED, Wolverine)

Vertigo’s most unusual and terribly cool post-apocalyptic road-trip epic is unstoppable. The innocent deer/boy Gus is forced from his forest sanctuary into the almost annihilated world of men where he’s desperately led by a different kind of force of nature: A cold killer who promises the only chance of salvation. Get onboard the buzz bandwagon with the ongoing series mash-up of horror, high adventure and friendship by Eisner-nominated storyteller Jeff Lemire (THE NOBODY, Essex County Trilogy).
