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.
