In about 6 hours, Johnnie Christmas and I will be on a plane, headed to Toronto for Fan Expo Canada. Super excited to get back to Toronto (although considerably less excited to get up at 4:30am to leave). We’ll be at table P116 selling all sorts of goodies: we’ll have SHELTERED #1 and #2, including several of the SHELTERED #1 variants. I’ll have MURDER BOOK Vols. 1-3, COMEBACK and some other stuff I’ve worked on. Johnnie will have some SHELTERED prints and will be taking commissions. AND, I TOO will have some prints. For the first time ever, I’ve illustrated two prints, one of Lucas and the other of Victoria. Both are limited to 25 each and will never be reprinted. Check ‘em out at the bottom of this post.
I’ll also be on a panel on Thursday evening.
THURSDAY 6:45pm ROOM 715
WRITERS UNITE! PITCHING YOUR CREATOR-OWNED COMICS
Creator-owned comics have grabbed the imagination of the comic-reading community all over again and publishers are looking for fresh ideas from a new generation of talent. Listen closely as creators Ed Brisson (Sheltered), Steve Niles (30 Days of Night), and moderator Jim Zub (Skullkickers) discuss pitching their comic series to publishers and offer advice on how to climb to the top of the treacherous submission mountain along with comic writing techniques and amusing anecdotes.
Anyhow, hope to see you folks in Toronto! More signing and con news coming soon!
And now, the prints!
Alright folks. I’m going to be at the Vancouver Fan Expo this weekend, camped out at table P4. I’ll have Murder Book, Comeback, Acts of Violence and issues of Near Death featuring Murder Book back up stories. I’ll also have a VERY LIMITED number of Peter Panzerfaust #10 Convention Sketch Special Editions with cover sketches by me – these will be $25 ea. Did I mention that I’d only have a VERY LIMITED NUMBER OF THESE? Haven’t you always wanted a cover sketch from the letterer of a book? I know you have! I KNOW YOU HAVE! (Here’s what they look like, if you’re curious)
Anyway, swing by, say hi and buy some stuff.
Here’s a sort of map of where I’ll be at:
Just a quick heads up that I’ve been added as a special guest at SEE (the Saskatchewan Entertainment Expo) that will take place in Saskatoon this September.
From their website:
lanning is in full swing for SEE’s first Entertainment Expo, coming to Saskatoon in September of 2013. This is an exciting time of growth for Saskatchewan, and we think it’s about time our province had an Entertainment and Pop Culture Convention to match. We are planning to bring in exciting North American television and movie entertainers, as well as pop culture and comic book creators to provide a cultural experience in Saskatchewan that has yet to be attempted on this scale. Rounding out the immense talent, we will fill the hall with provincial and national vendors of all kinds, for a show that will appeal to adults and families alike looking for an exciting day out.

See you folks there!
