Look at that! A Mike Mignola cover on one of my books. Like most everyone, I love his work, and feel pretty honored to have it gracing The Creep #1.
Tomorrow, you can pick this up, get it signed by moi, and have a beer and something to eat courtesy of Things From Another World on Broadway and 28th, here in Portland. The party starts at 7— head over here for the details.
This week, I officially wrapped up my art duties on John Arcudi’s wrenching neo-noir, The Creep. And yet … the world’s hardly begun to see it! That changes in September, as issue #1 of the Dark Horse miniseries comes to comics shops, following August’s issue #0 (a collection of three segments we ran in Dark Horse Presents). It’ll have a fabulous Mike Mignola cover (!) and a sweet release party/signing/gallery at the Portland Things From Another World store (Hollywood location). I’ll be there September 12th, from 7 to 10 PM doing the requisite signing, and they’ll have a gallery of my work up all month, featuring pieces from Dear Creature, Green River Killer, The Creep, and more. I may even put some of them up for sale. If all that’s not enough to get you out there, I have four words: FREE FOOD AND BEER.
If you’re near Portland, come out and enjoy swell comics folk, drinks, and 80’s neo-noir-themed-hors d’oeuvres. Just kidding. But I wouldn’t put it past Elisabeth, the TFAW master of ceremonies. She does it up right.
In related news, I’m happy to hear that a lot of you enjoyed issue #0. You crazy kids, you. Thanks for all the help getting this book noticed. And remember: the more issues of The Creep you read, the more sunlight you’ll need for basking in afterwards. I promise.
