As February wraps up, so do your opportunities to pre-order "BODIE TROLL"! This is my best comics work to date, and my most personal. It's something adults will enjoy, and still be able to share it with kids. And if you need a comparison, anyone who enjoyed movies like "The Princess Bride" and "Stardust", then this book is for you. If you enjoyed comics like "Groo theWanderer" and "Asterix", then this book is for you. And if you enjoyed "Rocky and Bullwinkle" and their "Fractured Fairy Tales" segments, then this book is so ridiculously for you that I can't believe you haven't ordered it already! So please, take the order code from Diamond Distribution (FEB131119), run to your local comic shop with it and order the holy heck out of "BODIE TROLL"! This book is something special, and could really go far with your readership!

In related news, I've been doing some interviews to promote "BODIE TROLL", and they've been a lot of fun. The first is a podcast called "THE PANELISTS", hosted by my pal and fellow illustrator Kyle Latino. Kyle spoke with me and illustrator (and also a pal) Evan "Doc" Shaner, who colored the first four pages of "Bodie Troll" #1. Give 'er a listen and learn what makes these cartoonists tick!

The second promo piece was an interview on me that ran on BLEEDINGCOOL.COM, a popular comic news website. It's a long 'un but a good 'un! Give 'er a read and learn more about me than anyone should be allowed to by law!

And convention season is starting for me this Saturday, and I'm happy to kick it off at The MSU Comics Forum, on the campus of Michigan State University. This will be my fourth year participating, and it's my favorite show for the slew of great artists in attendance, all of whom I'm proud to call my pals. Check out the website for times and location, and anyone who comes by my table can grab my new "BODIE TROLL" postcard for free!

My fellow artist and webmaster Nate Pride has recently updated my 2013 convention schedule (at least one new stop since the last update on Feb. 12th), which you can view here. This is my busiest con season ever, and I hope to see some of you at one of these great shows!

Lastly, here's a sneak peek at a panel from issue #2, which is currently on my drawing board. Who's Bodie kissin'? Does he ever like girls?! You'll find out soon enough!

After a brief break from blogging, I'm back with the news I've wanted to share with everyone for quite awhile now...

 The first issue of my new all-ages comic, "Bodie Troll" (published by Red 5 Comics), is finally available for pre-order through your neighborhood comic shop! The actual release date is April 17th, but you either need to order now to assure there's a copy waiting for you, or better yet, pester your local comic retailer to order piles of copies for their store. Check out this link for the order code (  FEB131119 for those who hate checking out links), take the code to any comic shop, and order the heck out of "Bodie Troll" #1!  

Also, any of you out there who own comic shops and would like to book me for a signing at your store, contact me at and we'll make it happen!

I'll leave you now with the faith that you'll all grab that code I gave you and skiddaddle off to your local comic shop to order my comic. But before you go, allow me to whet your appetite for what's to come, with a peek at the rough pencils for the cover of issue #2...
