Just a reminder: If you happen to be in Maine this Sunday, May 17th, you can drop by the Maine Comics Arts Festival in Portland, and get Joe Staton and I to sign your copy of the (award-winning!) Femme Noir trade paperback – weeks before it is available in stores! Yep, I'll be making one of my very rare public appearances with my Femme Noir partner Joe at this one-day celebration of indie comics. Joe will be drawing sketches, too!
Along with the new collection, I'll have copies of the individual Femme Noir issues, as well as copies of many of my other comics – Kolchak Tales, Gravedigger: The Scavengers, Leonard Nimoy's Primortals, etc. – available for sale.
The Festival, the first of it's kind in this part of the country, is being put on by my pal Rick Lowell of Portland's sequential art mecca, Casablanca Comics, and it looks like it's going to be a blast. It runs from 10 AM to 5 PM, and the guest list includes over 70 comic writers and artists; everyone from mini comics publishers to seasoned professionals. There will be comic book writers and artists, gag cartoonists, newspaper cartoonists, web comics creators and more.
