research and other wanderings - see my website! There are comics and a store and everything: Hark! A Vagrant
Look what’s here, it’s comics!  Click and go read em.  From the news post:
Hello my friends!It’s been a while. I’m trying to stretch these comic making muscles again, so here are a load of sketchy sillies. In the past year, I’ve been doing some work in books and tv, as I’ve mentioned, some of it working out and some of it not. But I’m very excited to tell you that I just finished this book with Scholastic, which should be out next fall! It’s a lot of fun and I hope you will like it! I’m working on the sequel to the Hark A Vagrant book next with Drawn and Quarterly, so good news, you’ll be seeing comics more frequently! And I miss making them.

we’re signees! here’s a treat!

Alvvays is a pretty terrific band making a name for themselves around here, Molly and Kerri hail from my own shores so of course everyone is proud as peacocks about it.  Including me of course!  But the reviews are great across the board, and anyway, the proof is in the pudding.  

I’m going home in a week, so I am excited about that.  I was home a while ago for something and drew a few things.

The Wartime Kitchen Garden 

I wish I could see all the episodes from these series!

Eleanor Davis’ comics are among the greatest being made today, and as you can see here, they are many and varied and beautiful.  I have followed her work since livejournal days, picked up issues of Mome because she was in them, and have long envied her skills.  I love her strong, distinct voice.

How to be Happy is long overdue, but it’s out now, and I picked it up right away.

Paperback redesign and also s’more cookies cause that’s how I feel about it.

Hey maybe you saw I did promo illustrations for The Well’s End a while back?  That was before it was released, and here it is with a brand new softcover, so keep a look out!  The reviews are all great, don’t take my word for it, just throw it on that summer reading list.

There’s a lot more story here now!  A beautifully done comic.

I really love John Allison’s Tackleford tales and I wrote a bit about why, specifically “reviewing” The Case of the Team Spirit, the first volume of Bad Machinery, published by Oni Press
