Things are Happening

Okay, I know it’s been a very long time since I last posted to this blog, and even longer since I last posted new comics. But good news! That’s all about to change!

For the past couple of years, I’ve been wrapped up in a book project, a comics history textbook co-authored with Dan Mazur. Along with teaching and parenting, my time has been pretty well spoken for. But just today, I turned in the last major chunk of text to the publisher; aside from a few loose ends, the textbook is done! Hooray! It should be out from Thames & Hudson sometime next year. I’ll let you know when that happens.

And I am thrilled to now be turning my attention back to creative work! There’s even a series already to start up. Over the past year, I’ve been noodling on some ideas with Tym Godek, an artist I’ve been wanting to work with for years. And guess what: it’s happening! We have 9 pages done and ready to go already, so you can expect to see it soon. I’ll tell you more about it next week, but for now, keep an eye out for “Two for No.”

I have several other projects in early stages as well, and would love to say more about them, but it’s definitely too soon. But the rest of my summer is going to be dedicated to making creative work happen, and I couldn’t be happier about it.
