Mikhaela and I (and the kid!) are going to be tabling at the 2013 Small Press Expo in Bethesda, Maryland on September 14 and 15. So if you’re in the D.C or anywhere near Maryland, stop by and say hi! Free mini-comic to anyone who brings me an unopened energy beverage.
More details this week until showtime this weekend!
This weekend, come see me at ECBACC 2013, May 18, 11am-7pm. 4548 Market St. at the Enterprise Center, Philadelphia PA.
Books, minis & other things! COMICS!! Afterwards, a cheese steak will be consumed somewhere.
COMING SOON: San Diego. North Bethesda.
I’m participating in the traveling library/world tour known as the Sketchbook Project that starts in the Brooklyn Art Library (April 14th-29th) and travels to 13 more cities around the country. That means you can go to a participating art space and see 30+ pages of my original art in a sketchbook. You can check it out and get your grubby fingerprints all over it. And I’ll get a phone text notification letting me know! Or you can just be a ‘lazy Daisy’ and click here.
Brooklyn, Chicago, Portland (Oregon and Maine), Vancouver, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Boston, Toronto, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Winter Park (Florida), Austin. For more details on Sketchbook Project locations, go here.

This Saturday (2/18/12 @ 12 noon-3:30pm) I’m doing a signing with other contributors for African-American Classics (and a bunch of other great comic book writers and artists) at Hue-Man Bookstore & Cafe in Harlem for Black Comic Book Day.

African-American Classics: Graphic Classics Vol. #22 is out NOW.
Get it and check out pages 108 & 109 first. Then read the rest of the book, filled with adapted stories and poems by comic luminaries including Lance Tooks, Kyle Baker, Alex Simmons, and Shephard Hendrix. Let the awesomeness permeate your brainmeat for approximately 20 minutes after book reading is complete. Feel free to weep openly with joy, but try to keep your clothes on.
When your joy tears have dried and your pants are rebuckled, read Volume 22 again. WITH FERVOR! However this time pages 108 & 109 should be read last and in a booming theatrical voice with lots of hand gestures. Also it’s recommended that you orate it standing up and marching in a circle (or in the shape of your choosing).
Repeat the process, only this time read every third word in every third panel. Who knows? You might find a secret message hidden inside!
I’ll be at the Brooklyn Book Festival in about…um, half an hour from the time I finish this post. It’s in and around Borough Hall Plaza on Sunday 9/18 from 10am-6pm.
See some of your favorite authors and cartoonists, like ME and Keith Knight. FOR FREEEEEE!!!
Go! Go right now!!
First, have a sneak peek at the first panel of my adaptation of ‘De Cunjah Man’ in African-American Classics: Graphic Classics Vol. 22 on sale December 2011.

Aaaaaaaaand this weekend, September 10 & 11 in Bethesda, MD, I’ll be at the 2011 Small Press Expo peddling books with Jen Sorenson and hanging out with Keith Knight and other cartoonist pals.
Unfortunately my better half, Mikhaela Reid, can’t make it this year, so this will be my first convention without a buffer between my many neuroses and the public at large. Me nervous! Hope ya like sweaty handshakes and mumblecore!
Forget the rapture!! On Saturday May 21, I’ll be in Philadelphia, PA at the Crowne Plaza Hotel for ECBACC 2011 (East Coast Black Age of Comics Convention) selling stuffed Doodles, the mini-comic ‘So You’ve Been Laid Off?!‘, copies of ‘Deep Doodle‘, Cartoon Rolodex originals (and premiering new unpublished cards).
Or maybe you’d like to buy a 2011 sampler of all my new and upcoming junk, including a sneak peek at ‘Wood’s Anatomy‘, my skewed take on the human body and all of its icky parts.
So come see me this weekend and give me your money* and attention!!
*Especially all of you Rapture-heads. I mean, whattaya gonna do with all your cash? Spend it in the Heaven gift shop? Might as well fork it over to me (I’m not going anywhere) and buy yourself a funnybook to read while you’re ‘ascending’.
Check out my version (top) of Gil Kane’s cover to Sensation Comics #109. The original art and a color print are on exhibit (and for sale) at Headspace Gallery in Michigan’s Green Brain Comics (see press release below)
Green Brain Comics is proud to announce the opening of a new exhibit entitled COVERED on Wednesday, January 13th in the recently named HEADSPACE Gallery inside Green Brain Comics.
Inspired by a similar theme at the Covered blog (www.covered.blogspot.com) HEADSPACE curator Dan Merritt has assembled several pieces by artists that have brought their own touch to famous, and infamous comic book covers from several different decades.
“The theme for this exhibit has really sparked a creative flame.” says Merritt “Each of these pieces has been lovingly recreated in tribute to the original art and the original artists that created them.”
Featured in the exhibit will be works from Michigan based comic creators Paul Sizer, Matt Feazell, and Sean Bieri. Joining them will be other well known local artists Eric Millikin, Jennifer Rose Evans, and Chris Houghton. The Covered exhibit also features new work by many others, including Bryan Durren, Heather Hansma, Lizz James, Jesse Hughes and a piece by Masheka Wood from New York.
The opening reception for the Covered exhibit will be on Wednesday January 13th from 7pm to 10 pm. And the art will be on view until Saturday March 6th.
HEADSPACE Gallery is inside Green Brain Comics which is located at 13210 Michigan Avenue in East Downtown Dearborn. More information is available at www.greenbrain.biz or by calling 313-582-9444
