Another signing on the books!

A big thanks goes out to all the people you came out to my signing and to Krav’n Comics for being a fantastic host. I meet a ton of really great people and got to talk comics all day long.  I especially enjoyed talking to a young man who was interested in both writing and drawling his own comics.  He asked a ton of really great question.  There is nothing I like more than imparting what little I’ve learning about making comics over the last few year to people interested in becoming creators themselves.  I love how accessible comics is and how it really is the only art form where it not only accepted to go out and make your own thing, it encouraged.  By talking about my own experience and process, it helps crystallize what I’ve done over the years.  I think I end up learning more than the person asking about making comics.

If you didn’t get to come out to my signing today, I would encourage you to check out Krav’n Comics when you have a chance.  It a great family run store with a really welcoming and friendly atmosphere.  Plus that have a ton of cool Funco Pops and other cool toys in addition to comics.  It the kind of store we need more of in this industry.  I can’t wait to check out their comic book bingo night.

Speaking of awesome stores, I have my next signing lined up at another awesome store.  On Saturday December 5th I’ll be at Johnny Destructo’s Hero Complex in beautiful Manayunk, PA from 1pm to 6pm.  If you live in Philly and coming all the way out to the ‘burbs was too far, now your chance to have me sign a book and to visit a really cool shop right on main street.  I’ve known JD for years and he is amazingly knowledgeable. At Johnny Destructo’s Hero Complex he had curated a fantastic selection of graphic novels and trade paperbacks.  You could randomly pick up any book at the store and come away with a great read.  I hope to see you there!


Krav’n Comics

I’m very pleased to announce that I’ve book the next Signing for The Chronicles of the Tal Nor.  On Saturday November 21 I’ll be signing for 11am to 4pm at Krav’n Comics in the Upland Shopping Center across from the Target.  Krav’n Comics is a great comic shop with a ton of hard to find Pop! Vinyls.  I’d be surprised if I don’t end up going home with at least one to add to my collections.  You can check out their website here

I can’t wait to see you there.


Signings, Cons and Reviews

Looking back at the last three Wednesdays I can say without doubt that I could not have asked for better way to launch the first issue of The Chronicle of the Tal Nor than doing events at the Uncanny/Comics and More family of stores.  Everyone who work there is so supportive of the book and made for a great experiences.  I had so much fun meeting people at each signing.  It was great to talk comics, writing and storytelling all day long. If you’re in the Philadelphia area, do yourself a favor and visit one of these awesome stores.

If you missed me at these in-store signs, don’t fear, your next chance to get a signed copy of the book is right around the corner.  On Halloween I’ll be at the Locust Moon Fall Comics Fest from 11am to 6pm.  This looks like it’s going to be an awesome show with a ton of great creators.  It a curated show and I applied without much hope that I was going to get invited.  I’m incredibly honored that they thought enough of my work to ask me to be there.  For more details on all the amazing guest check out their websites.

Speaking of amazing guest.  As you might remembered over the summer made a special pre-release version of the book for the SPACE show in Ohio.  At this show I was able to talk with a ton awesome creators and give many of them a copy of the book.  My old friend David Branstetter, creator of Straw Man (check out his work HERE ), was kind enough to share a review of the book. Please give it a read below, but be warned there are some plot spoilers.

The cover to Tal-Nor #1 boldly proclaims "S.P.A.C.E Exclusive Edition" with the confidence that you'll want to hunt this bad boy down in the future when this series becomes highly collectible. I'll admit that I sometimes fall victim to the old saying "You can't judge a book by its cover".

While nicely illustrated, the design didn't really sell me on the story. Fortunately T. Perran Mitchell's writing and Kelsea Jewell's vibrant and impressionistic illustrations set a wonderfully strange and alien vibe that was apparent from the first page. We follow a young lady named Sophie who is a trained spy and hunter. She's in the middle of a rescue operation when she's unexpectedly captured. Sophie is no victim. She keeps doing her best to get out of her situation and I admire T's writing for creating a strong female protagonist that simply refuses to give up. Even with bruises on her face she continues to move forward in her pursuit without any kind of pity party.

Throw in an interesting story about invading aliens, medieval clothing, and futuristic technology and you have a fresh, otherworldly adventure. Highly recommended! 

One Down Two to Go

I want to thank Lexi, Rob, Victor and Elias from Uncanny in King of Prussia for helping out during the first stop on the Uncanny and More tour.  It was a great time and I meet a ton of awesome people.  There nothing better than talking comics all day long.

Check out this great picture Lexi took of me before the event!

If you missed out, don’t worry there still two more events scheduled on this tour.  The next event is at the Comics and More at Plymouth Meeting mall on Wednesday the 14th.  Just like at Uncanny, I’ll be there all day starting a 1pm. The week after that I'll be at the Uncanny in the Montgomery Mall from 1pm to 9pm.  I hope to see you at one of these great events!


P.S. I’ll be back at Uncanny in King of Prussia on Halloween, only in costume and handing out candy for Malloween.
