Rose City Comic Con! This weekend!

This weekend, I’ll be at the Rose City Comic Con. My table is at the Helioscope Studio island, officially known as Booth 911.

Or, if I’m not there, I’m on a panel, or at a signing.

Or I’m hiding.

I might be hiding.

How to Capture an Invisible Cat! It’s Friday the 13th!

tumblr_nsldqgivkl1qzab0no1_540

Tired of endlessly reading the same old thing? Running around in circles on the same books? Maybe it’s time to pick up How to Capture an Invisible Cat, the first book in my Genius Factor series!

genius factor cover

In fact, it’s DEFINITELY time, because it’s Friday the 13th, a day that plays a major role in my series.

index

The books star Delphine Cooper and Nate Bannister, a genius that’s SO smart that he’s frankly a bit bored with having everything all figured out. So, in order to exercise his seemingly limitless mind, he does three incredibly not-so-very-smart things every Friday the 13th, challenging himself to deal with the fallout. In the first book, “How to Capture an Invisible Cat,” Nate transforms his family cat into a giant, invisible, and unfortunately-rampaging monster cat. Dealing with THIS Friday the 13th is going to be a serious challenge, especially when Nate’s nemesis, the evil Red Death Tea Society, chooses this time to launch their attack, causing untold chaos!

The adventure begins!

blahblahA friend posing with the UK editions.

The first book is out NOW, and further books (there are five volumes planned in the series) will be released at intervals of every nine months. Jump on NOW, on the fitting day of Friday the 13th, to join the fun!

BANDETTE! New installment… TODAY!!!

Screen shot 2016-05-10 at 7.24.01 PM

Today! Our newest digital chapter of Bandette arrives TODAY. It’s the final installment in our “House of the Green Mask” storyline, and our longest chapter to date, because there was extra adventure and charm and suspense and thievery to fit into the pages. Colleen Coover really worked her adorable fingers to the bone, and it shows! Her artwork and storytelling just keep getting better and better. I’m lucky to work with her, and of course even luckier that I hypnotized her into being my wife.

Here are a few random out-of-order panels from the issue… come on over to ComiXology and put them in context by reading the lucky 13th installment of a title that, over the last four years, has been nominated for ten (!) Eisner awards. (which is both extremely humbling and also… wow… extremely hard to wrap my head around)Screen shot 2016-05-10 at 7.23.43 PM
