Looks like NPR’s All Things Considered did a piece on true crime, including a look at Green River Killer. Nice.
The Onion AV Club also picked it as one of their top 10 graphic novels of the year! Congratulations to Jeff, Tom, Sierra, Brendan, and the rest of the Dark Horse crew.
Some good news for my books this week: Joining Amazon and The New York Times‘ ‘Best of 2011’ lists are USA Today and Horror Talk (which picked both Dear Creature and Green River Killer on their horror comics list!). Very nice.
Eugene Weekly also ran a great review of Dear Creature.
At the heart of Dear Creature is the interplay of base desire and reasoned response. Grue’s entertaining quest to identify the sender of his Bardic bottles somehow makes time to comment on B-movies of the 1950s, Cold War hysteria, prejudice, immigration and the enduring powers of art and romance.
You can pick up signed copies of both books at my web store’s Holiday Sale!
And here we go!
My web store’s Holiday Sale is now live through the end of the year, so now’s the time to snag something for your special someone. Everything’s 20-30% off. This candy-cane striped giant squid (Twelve Drummers Drumming) is, for example, just eight bucks.
And if you’re looking to commission something completely original, drop me a line: I’ll give you a holiday price-break on that too.
Have a fun holiday season!
Okay, maybe you’re already done holiday shopping. If not, consider the deals:
20% off books (including this limited edition of Dear Creature) and art prints. 30% off original art, like this fabulous (if I do say so) Wunda Woman watercolor painting.
She was $400. Tomorrow, she’s just $280. Yowza!
Looking for a few graphic novel ideas for the holidays? Head over to Northwest Book Lovers, where I list four dynamite picks (Crumb, Brosgol, Dewey, Cooke), plus a book on grant writing for artists by Gigi Rosenburg.
Something for everyone!
