This weekend I'll be at the San Francisco Zine Fest. Aside from some new prints, and all the comics, prints, and originals I usually have available, there will be a brand new, very limited (there are ten. That's right.) collection of the complete Care story Matt Sheean and I did for Brandon Graham's Prophet series. It also includes our previous Prophet backup, Shock Post, as well as some additional drawings. 24 full color pages, numbered and signed.

Titan Head. This new print will debut at the Sequential Smarts discussion I'm participating in on Wednesday night at the Skirball, so get tickets! The following week it'll be available through my online store.
Inspired by the illustrative world of Gary Baseman as explored in the exhibition Gary Baseman: The Door Is Always Open, attend this panel of graphic novelists as they discuss the conceptual underpinning of contemporary graphic storytelling and L.A.’s central place in the world of the graphic novel.
Like Gary Baseman, many graphic novelists use illustration to depict fantastic worlds of their own making. Panelists Sina Grace (Not My Bag and Li’l Depressed Boy), Hope Larson (A Wrinkle in Time, Who Is AC?), Nick Thorburn (author of What a Gas and lead singer of the band Islands), and Malachi Ward (Expansion, Utu, and Ritual) discuss their work and the world of the graphic novel. A Q&A and book signing follow the program.
Sponsored by The Skirball Cultural Center, and The Secret Headquarters, this is going to be an event to remember. All attendees get a limited edition print of the image above (signed by all four panelists).
Wednesday, May 8, 8:00 p.m.

A page from Care (Part 1), a back-up comic tucked inside Prophet #34. By me and Matt Sheean. We also do the cover. Pick it up! Prophet issues usually go out of print quickly, and they don't do a second run.
