That’s the end of The Ghost in the Post, the 2nd chapter of Margo Maloo! Thanks for reading. Chapter 3 starts in December! In the meantime, I’ll still be posting behind the scenes Margo stuff over at my Patreon, if you’re so inclined – and I’ll be tweeting and tumblring and what-not. Stay tuned!
Now that Set to Sea is (hopefully!) in your local comic shop / bookstore, of course I have to do a little “book tour!” If you want to pick up a copy, get it signed, or just say hello, here’s what I’ll be doing this weekend:
*Book tour may only include driving downtown and up to Atlanta.
Hey, my first graphic novel, Set to Sea, is finally back in print! The hardback’s been sold out for over a year – I’ve been having fun watching the secondhand prices rise to ridiculous levels on Amazon. But Fantagraphics has finally brought out this snazzy new paperback, and I did a brand new wraparound cover for it. It’s very blue. So, so, blue. We had to work hard to get it this blue, with weeks of color samples going back and forth – I’m sure the designers over at Fantagraphics all hate me now.
If you click on that, it’ll take you to the Fanta page for the book, with a preview and a little video and all the blurbs you can eat, like the nice review it got by NPR and New York Magazine. It’s pretty different from Margo Maloo (and not suitable for little kids), but maybe you’ll take a look?
Hey everyone, I am feeling really good about working on Margo Maloo! That’s why I’m launching a Patreon campaign for it. The idea behind Patreon is, patrons can chip in small amounts of money that directly to support the comic! In return, there are some unique rewards, like behind-the-scenes stuff, sketches, and other bonus material. Plus, (and this is the main thing) the more you support Margo, the more time I can take to work on it – so you get more pages, sooner! Here’s a little video I made:
Dear reader, I see we’ve stumbled into the dusky realms of Chapter 2! And I see Thompson is bound to once again find himself entangled in the monstrous underbelly of Echo City. Let’s all sit back and see what trouble he encounters this time.
This month marks the release of an exciting book: How to Be Happy, by Eleanor Davis – who just so happens to be my wife. This short story collection, though decidedly NOT kid-friendly, is full of the beautiful, fluid art and deeply moving pieces that she’s been creating for the last few years. It’s an amazing book, and I couldn’t be more proud of her. I hope you consider giving it a look (assuming you are, of course, not a Kid.) It’s available at your finer local indie book and comic stores, directly from the publisher, and, if all else fails, on Amazon.
