Doin' some comics outreach

I'll be exhibiting with old table mate Jamie Tanner this weekend at the NYC Zine Fest as we support a great event and spread the goodness of comics to non-traditional readers. The best part? Attendance is FREE to the public!

"Groundhog Day"

Every day is spent doing stuff like this and I couldn't be happier:

Got the place to myself for the next week so hoping to make up for lost time (MoCCA + out of town guests = a little behind on inks). That, and not wearing pants for seven days. Boo-YAH!

MoCCA aftermath

All the joys and horrors of last weekend's MoCCA have been extensively dissected, examined, and blogged by far more articulate and knowledgeable people then me. Despite its serious growing pains, I did hesitantly register for next year and am hopeful the major flaws of MoCCA's new venue are resolved before then.

So now it's back to work. Making comics can be pretty solitary so spending the weekend reconnecting with kindred spirits and having so many cartoonists ask about VIETNAMERICA's progress was really refreshing. It's a great feeling when other people who's work I respect and admire know what I'm working on and are anxious to read it. In fact, the demand for VIETNAMERICA has become so huge that I've decided to publish it with an ultra-rare collectible variant cover:

Anyone need a hotel for SDCC?

I won't be exhibiting at next month's San Diego Comic-Con--my first time not attending in over 6 years. Financial constraints prevent me from making the cross-country trek to the holy land, but I'll be back with a vengeance in 2010. Email me if you're in need of a hotel within walking distance of the event.

On a happier note: MoCCA this weekend!!! If your eyeballs don't explode before reaching the distant far corners of the hall, swing by table 624!
