NEW COMIC: Explore depression and anxiety with THE PROCESS!

I am very proud to announce my brand new self-published comic, THE PROCESS, which I will be releasing in just two weeks through my Dirty Third Comics label!  Debuting at the Rod Con Comic Convention at the University of Northern Iowa in print, it will be submitted to Comixology for digital release later this year.

THE PROCESS is an honest exploration of my battles against depression and anxiety and, specifically, how this has affected my comic book career.  It is by far the most personal comic that I have ever written, somewhere along the same lines as the semi-autobiographical “They Say…” and “Loves, Letters, Leaves” that were released in Grayhaven Comics’ anthologies You Are Not Alone and War Stories.  For the first time since the end of Dear Dinosaur, I not only wrote but also illustrated and hand-lettered the book.  As such, it is filled with imperfections and minor inconsistencies, but I feel that only emphasizes how personal the comic really is to me.  

To be perfectly honest, I’m actually a little nervous to put this comic out into the world.  While I try to put a little bit of myself into everything that I create, this is the first time that I’ve been so blatantly autobiographical.  Given the sensitive and often difficult subject matter, I hope that the comic is well received, especially by those who have had similar struggles.  If you are hitting up any of the same conventions as me this year, be sure to swing by my table to pick up the comic or purchase it digitally later this year!

Come see me at ROD CON on April 2nd!

I am very excited to announced that I will be a guest at the upcoming ROD CON at The Universty of Northern Iowa in Cedar Falls, Iowa on April 2nd!  This is a really fun little convention that brings in a lot of great guests from throughout the midwest.  This is going to be so awesome!

I am now taking pre-orders for sketches, sketch cards, and "haiku and hero" sketch covers!  All of my rates are below the jump.  Additionally, I will have a full slate of my writing books, including a few titles from Grayhaven Comics and Red Stylo Media that I have never sold at a show before. I really hope to see y'all there!  If you are interested in preordering anything, please hit me up on Facebook, on Twitter, or shoot me an email!
