And another San Diego moment

From Gene Yang -- who saw someone in this actual costume, blending different strands of pop culture...


And this one, from the highly talented Aaron Renier:

More San Diego moments

Here's how this panel would have come out if his #%^&*! editor had had his way -- but for those who've read THE FATE OF THE ARTIST, Eddie Campbell prevailed...

San Diego moments

Just back from San Diego's ComiCon -- First Second's first time! We had a little booth, but it was a happening one. We came with the attitude of getting our first taste, and learning for next year. We were pleasantly surprised by the number of people coming by who knew all about :01 already.


The classy Eddie Campbell was signing THE FATE OF THE ARTIST and showing a tantalizing glimpse of his upcoming THE BLACK DIAMOND DETECTIVE AGENCY, about which we'll be making plenty of noise (Spring '07 title).


Gene Yang was also signing at the First Second booth. Advance copies of his AMERICAN BORN CHINESE were on hand, not for sale until this September. That didn't stop everyone from wanting their own. Also at the booth from First Second, Gina!


All kinds were reading First Second books.

Journeys Home

The day ends, the working week finishes and people wait for their connections at bus stops. There’s just time to put these down before my own bus arrives.

Perhaps the most discreet publishing job ever! Even if you're holding this book in your hands, you might not be entirely sure it was created by none other than Chris Oliveros. Bravo, Chris!


A treat from a very bright talent, Lilli Carré. See for yourself.


And from Monsieur Jordan Crane, a very impressive piece. I especially enjoyed the first story, BELOW THE SHADE OF NIGHT.

But right now it's crazy for me to even think of blogging. We're wrapping up the Spring '07 books as we speak -- and the deadline to send them to the printer is TODAY.

Gotta go.

Another Train Drawing

There's no story to this picture, other than I liked the look of the woman. She was engrossed in her book and wore a great jacket, with little epaulettes. She was very stylish in a quiet, unfussy way.

Furtive Gentleman

Strange-looking character drawn on a train. Looked like he might be a spy, or a scientist working on a top-secret government project. You should never judge a book by it's cover... but sometimes it's a laugh to speculate. And anyway, I can't help it - I make up stories for a living. Maybe he's actually far more boring than he looked.
