Hi there, here’s my cover for a chapter for the great comics Spera ( http://spera-comic.com/ ).
You have to read it, the story is great and it’s full of great artists. It was a pleasure to work on the character from Afu Chan.
Anyone sees the reference of an rpg on my cover hehe ?

I know the reference, but only because Sourya Sihachakr told me. Guillaume Singelin is a man of good taste.

This is Guillaume’s incredible cover to Sourya’s chapter of Ascension of the Starless.

Single-page Love Me Nice update just went up!
I prefer to post multi-page updates but as busy as I am, I didn’t want a month to go by without a single update, so I posted a page. There will hopefully be more before the month ends.

Just a CRAZY HOUR reminder my webcomic updated, cuz I posted it at a bizarrely normal hour this time.

Major life events in comics!
I document so much of my life in comics, it seemed … lazy?… to neglect such a big part of it. I’ve been trying to get this one out for a while, but i’m not prone to sappiness or self-aggrandizing (despite what making endless comics about myself might imply) so i had a hard time figuring out an approach.

So i went with honesty :)
Last year Lucy Knisley told the story of her engagement in a heartfelt and open comic that i really respected. I respect ALL of her work, her comics are awesome, if you’ve never checked them out you totally should. In sitting down to tell my own story it made me think about what getting married means to me. I’m sure it means something slightly different to everyone, but is by no means any less meaningful. But crystallizing that idea helped me here.

I was sweaty and gross and said “Yeah. Sure.” and Jason didn’t change his mind. I think we’re gonna be alright :)

LISSA GOT ENGAGED AND MADE A COMIC ABOUT IT ahgbluhbluhhhuhuhu *happy sobbing*

Liss and I have been buds since I was first whipped into a seething jealous rage upon seeing her art in middle school (how has it been that LONG, good lord), and she found a top notch dude in Jason and, and, and…  I just couldn’t be happier for them.  Those sweet bastards deserve each other. <3

First Impressions 4/16

Best Books of the week:

A Voice in the Dark #6
Hidden GN
Gaijin HC
City in the Desert vol. 2

Trekker: Train to Avalon Bay TP - I had a hard time getting into this one due to the first few pages being a lot of ass shots of the protagonist, coupled with her having a conversation about her ass with the criminal she was apprehending. A woman sitting seiza in an above-the-knee cocktail dress in the middle of rocky terrain clinched it for me. Nnnnnnnope.

A Voice in the Dark #6 - Zoey has been extremely cautious so far, covering her tracks with the utmost care. A variable is introduced in this issue that has left me wondering if she’s going to make her first mistake…riveting, as always!

Genesis TP - I found this book to be the lackluster journey of a man given ultimate power without the maturity to handle it. The surreal imagery, coupled with his childish outbursts, left me unimpressed. I can appreciate that there’s meant to be a degree of soul-searching and a lesson here, but it’s a in a clunky, unappealing package that doesn’t really deliver.

Adventure Time #27 - Finn and Jake help people when they are trying to mess with em, and mess with people when they are trying to help em. Guess this ghost thing takes some getting used to.

Afterschool Charisma vol. 9 - Crazy backstory volume sheds some light on the motivations of a couple of characters that I was not expecting would ever be in the spotlight. Things are feeling a little Evanglion-y in here.

Captain Action Cat #1 - It is impossible to describe this book without using the word “cute” about 50 times, but I’ll do my best. A wonderful introduction to some hero book concepts for younger readers, Captain Action Cat pulls together both heroes and villains from three different eras of comics. Clever enough for adults to enjoy, and exciting for kids! Pick this one up to give your little ones a taste of time travel and the concept of multiple dimensions, as well as a dose of comics history!

Climate Changed: A Personal Journey Through Science GN - While this book is full of a lot of excellent research, I was left feeling puzzled as to why the author chose to go with a graphic novel format. Facts are accompanied by lovely images that are in no way required for the reader to synthesize the information. The only time the pictures and words were inseparable was during the personal scenes of exchanges between the author and his wife that serve as chapter breaks. These exchanges didn’t so much add to the humanity as break up the intensity of the info dump. It’s almost like the author is saving journalists the trouble of interviewing him about his process by including it all in there.

If you want a lot of information about climate change, this book definitely delivers that. However, it could do it just as effectively in much less space if it was a prose novel.

Frankenstein Alive! Alive! #3 - I was really struck by the crazy angle of the flesh left above the Frankenstein monster’s nose. That must have been one hell of a schnoz. This ish was frustratingly short, with nearly 1/3 of the 29 pages dedicated to prose and ads. Undeniably fantastic art.

Star Mage #1 - This kid is the chosen one, but he has no idea of his heritage or how to use his powers! OH NOES! (Real story will start in issue 2. I hope.)

Wolfsmund vol. 4 - More villagers throw themselves at the stronghold and die horribly to the eternally grinning tyrant within. I guess an effective villain needs to be brilliant and cruel, but I’m not sure how many more books of suffering I can take.

Bonus: special orders and shortage replacements!

Hidden GN - This emotionally charged little euro book sports art reminiscent of the work of Joann Sfar, and a story that will make your heart pound. The majority of the narrative is from the perspective of a little jewish girl living in Paris in 1942. At once wrenching and gripping; a beautifully woven tale of human cruelty and kindness.

Gaijin: American Prisoner of War HC - A painterly tale of the suffering of the Japanese-Americans forced into internment camps during World War II, as seen through the eyes of a teen hapa boy. The humiliation and confusion of a young man rejected by both the Japanese and Caucasian communities due to his mixed heritage come to a boil as he struggles to make sense of the world and his place in it. Absolutely gorgeous art, and a tribute to both the weaknesses and strengths of humanity in the face of injustice.

City in the Desert vol. 2 - FINALLY. This beautifully embossed volume reveals Hari’s fascinating origin. The continuation of this epic, high fantasy story is just as lovely as the first book, and ends on an unbelievableCliffhangerICan’tWaitForTheNextVolumeArrrrrrgh! *ahem* Seriously, though, this book has it all. Action. Adventure. Romance. Monster girls. Talking snakes. Why aren’t you reading City in the Desert RIGHT NOW?!!

Greg Rucka goes off about some “boys club” bullshit he experienced at Wondercon.

I already tweeted about this earlier, but time to hit up the ol’ tumblr with my two cents.

First of all, I just want to say that this is a wonderful piece of writing. Rucka is bloody pissed off, and rightfully so. It’s always encouraging to see male comics professionals joining the fight against the crap female nerds deal with.

This isn’t the first time I’ve seen a father spurred to action because the garbage misogynist members of the nerd community spew has hurt his daughter. In fact, I’m pretty sure there are a lot of guys out there who might never have taken notice, nor taken the time to speak out, had they not had daughters. On the one hand, a very small part of me is sad that nothing previous to having a child was enough to motivate these men. The majority of me, however, is thrilled that these men are finally seeing what’s going on, and are taking action.

Here’s to angry nerd dads! Welcome to the fight against intolerant assholes. We’re glad to have you!
