Who's Next?

Very cool ad put together by ace Image art director Drew Gill, to run in select Image titles in February.

Comics superstar Robert Kirkman, the man behind The Walking Dead, Invincible, Super Dinosaur, and perhaps his best-loved and biggest hit, Battle Pope, has just delivered his foreword for MMW. I couldn't be happier with it. It blew me away. Robert and I have known each other a long time and it's incredibly flattering (and edifying) that his role has gone from burgeoning comics writer that used to send me fan mail, to publisher of this new edition (of the to book to which he used to send that fan mail). That my work, in any way, played a part in that trajectory is something of which I am mighty proud. He's a good dude. And he writes a helluva foreword.

Post Numero Uno

For my longtime audience — that seems a humbler word than "fans" — the news that a big (literally) super-deluxe edition of my seminal comics work, Minimum Wage, is soon to be released should be very good news. This really will be THE edition to have. It's been reworked (I toyed with subtitling it The OCD Edition because I just can't help myself), will boast a very impressive guest "pinup" gallery (quotes because does anyone actually clip these out and pin them up? Not with a big hardcover, I don't imagine), a full-color section featuring all the original covers, sketchbook stuff and more.

And as I said, it's big. MAXIMUM MINIMUM WAGE is a whopping 9" X 12", finally giving the art some room to breathe. And the dialogue won't be eyestrainingly tiny. I'm excited! I'm also psyched to be working with Image Comics for the first time. Robert Kirkman, who used to send me fan mail back when he was just starting out (sending me issues of Battle Pope) is the man behind this new edition, which is flattering and cool. He also contributed an awesome, humbling, foreword.

I'll be using this blog to supplement the supplements, posting additional sketch stuff and thumbnails and all that. I'll also be offering some exclusive content come release time of the book, so stay tuned.
