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!
I’m flying out to San Diego for my very first San Diego Comic-Con. I’m excited because I can get my full, undiluted geek on while catching up with friends old and new.
By the way, I’m not tabling there (that won’t happen until SPX later this year). Just walking around looking at stuff and trying not to go broke or crazy from the sensory overload.
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.
My cover for the latest issue of the lefty economics magazine Dollars & Sense. The editors wanted a parody of the recent Bloomberg Businessweek cover which sparked criticism last month by seemingly blaming the housing crisis on minorities.
Since last summer, I’ve been drawing cartoons (more specifically ‘visual rounds’) with my wife Mikhaela Reid for Geeks Who Drink, a company that hosts pub trivia quizzes in over 200 bars across the country, not to mention the incredibly popular annual Geek Bowl. Aah, the pub quiz. It combines three of my favorite things: beer, pop culture, and using my big sexy brain to answer pop culture trivia.
I’d show you an example of one of my cartoons, but it’s a quiz, dummy. You’ll just have to find one in a city near you.
Get Stephen Notley’s new Bob the Angry Flower collection How to Operate a Chair and help him celebrate 20 years of drawing psychotic flowers, fetuses, Daleks, stumps, Gunts and all sorts of death-rays and robotic mayhem.
Not only does this book have some of the funniest, smartest and sci-fi geekiest cartoons I’ve ever read, but it also features amazing Bob pinups by me, Keith Knight, Mikhaela Reid, Shannon Wheeler, Ruben Bolling and a bunch of other top comic and video game creators.
I’m also doing some stuff for my friend, award-winning editorial cartoonist (and editor for Cartoon Movement) Matt Bors. In this case, “stuff” means laying flat color for cartoons like this, and this one here, and that one, and a bunch of others. Check them out!
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.

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.
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!
