Long night. Very tiresome, trying to whip together a pitch for what could be my biggest project to date. My first epic. Unfortunately, that's about all I can say for now, but stay tuned.
Anyway, if you're reading this and live in or around the Greensboro North Carolina area, I urge you to stop in at ACME Comics for their March Madness event, where myself and other comic creators Sean McKeever (The Waiting Place, Teen Titans, and a shitload of other stuff for Marvel) and Chris Scweizer (Crogan's Vengence and Crogan's March from Oni Press) will be signing comics all day Saturday from opening til close.
I'm excited. It's my first real book signing and I'm doing it with one of my all-time favorite comic creators. I've gushed about McKeever a lot in the past, because of how his book influenced my writing Love Buzz for the comic format, so sitting down next to him and trying to act like I'm not completely nerding out is going to be difficult. Also can't wait to pick up and read Schwizer's books. I've heard amazing things about them.
A couple months back when we were scheduling this signing, Matt Fair, an ACME employee who has single handedly sold 25 copies of Love Buzz so far asked me to do an interview to promote the event. I've gotta say, it's one of the most in depth ones I've ever done. He asked all the right questions. Click here to read it!
Anyway, if you're in or close by the area on Saturday, stop in and say 'hi'! I'll report back by Monday with a rundown of how the signing goes, but I'm going to go ahead and predict it's going to go like gangbusters. If you can't make it out there, I feel sorry for you. It's gonna be a blast!
Now though... On to beauty sleep!
