The wizard of words, the ruler of naps.
Just a reminder that THE FIELD trade paperback hits shops today. The trade includes all four issues of the series, plus nearly 30 pages of extras, including a never-before-seen comic by Simon and I and a four page recreation of the twitter prank/experiment that inspired the series in the first place. It’s a pretty solid package and I’m really happy with the work that Simon, Simon and I did here.
So please, go out into the world and buy the shit out of this book today.
So, it’s that time of year again. The time of year where I head to New York to visit my favourite Thai restaurant. Coincidentally, it’s also NYCC time. So, a week of comics and Thai food. Have I died and gone to heaven? Nope, just Hell’s Kitchen.
Here’s a play-by-play of what I’ll be doing and where I’ll be, should you be so inclined to come see me (Buckle in, it’s gonna be a long post).
Visit me at my booth. Table R7 in Artist’s Alley. I’ll be there with Brian Level — a good dude and a better artist. We’re right next to Frank Barbiere, Chris Mooneyham and Sina Grace.

SUNDAY, OCT 12th
I’ll be signing at the Image Comics booth from 3pm-4pm.
Just look for the massive Image booth in the main hall of the show.
And… as far as I know, that’s it. I’ll probably leave the show shortly after my Image signing on Sunday, as I have to catch a plane back to Vancouver that same night. So, if you’re hoping to catch me, do it before 4pm on Sunday.
I look forward to seeing you all there!
