Emerald City

First, my book "Jan's Atomic Heart and Other Stories" came out yesterday!

Secondly, I'll be attending Emerald City Comicon in Seattle this weekend, sitting amongst a cluster of the finest artists of the comics medium, yet trapped betwixt the incorrigible Brandon Graham and the salubrious Joseph Bergin III (at table X-05). The above picture (drawn as a commission, much to the delight of my thirteen-year-old self - colored by Dean Stuart) will be available as a con-exclusive print!
While I'm there, I'll also be on this panel:
Image Comics Presents Building A Better Dystopia
No matter how good we have it, a future where we have nothing has its own thrill. These creators know their way around a dystopia, whether it's due to mad science, economic factors, or nightmarish alternate dimensions.

Program date and time: Sunday, March 30, 3:00pm in Room TCC 301

I think it'll be a pretty swell time all around.

EDIT: ALSO - the first issue of Ed and I's series, "The field", will be available with an exclusive convention cover! AHHHH!
