Love from Another Weekly... Publishers

Yes, Publishers Weekly gave the book a starred review (that's a pretty big deal). The review is a pretty interesting, different take (especially on Sylvia's role in the story).

Free Preview of Whole Comic Con Chapter from MAXIMUM MINIMUM WAGE

Call it largesse (go on, I dare you), but here’s the entire comic con chapter from my forthcoming Image Comics collection MAXIMUM MINIMUM WAGE, just to whet (or re-whet) your appetite. 20 pages out of the whopping 384 the book has. Read it, then order it from Amazon or at your local comic book shop. If they don’t have it, demand they order it!

Yessiree, I'll be signing Maximum Minimum Wage at Forbidden Planet, which is practically my alma mater. I've been shopping there since the opening day back in '81. Oh god! That's a long time ago. But of all its incarnations, this newest is the prettiest and I'm psyched to be having my first FP signing therein! It's spacious, attractive and welcoming to all (even non-nerds). Come on down and get the book (which will be generously discounted for the event, too!)

Also on deck will be some of the guest artists who contributed all-new pinups to the book.

Plus, debuting their new Image title, Five Ghosts, will be writer Frank Barbiere and artist Chris Mooneyham.

Come on down. Or up. Just be there!

Maximum Minimum Wage Campaign Spot

Video I made to promote the book, namely a political campaign-style spot for my snazzy new hardcover collection MAXIMUM MINIMUM WAGE. Features ace comic cover artist Dave Johnson, Mystery Science Theater 3000's Frank Conniff, the lovely Margaret Cho and the likewise lovely actor/voiceover god Phil LaMarr.

Oh, It's BIG!

Yes indeed, today Mr. FedEx delivered into my sweaty little paws (perhaps a tad sweatier than usual, as I still have the dregs of the flu) an advance copy of the book. Sweet Mary, it looks great. I am hypercritical and I can safely say this is a high-quality product. Good paper, nice cover treatments, bound-in cloth bookmark, sharp printing, the works. It really is what I hoped it would be.

Oh, and did I mention IT'S BIG?

Not going to contextualize this drawing, but it's for the book.
