We've been treated to a very kind user review on Amazon...

Eh, what the hell. Here's what it said:
I hadn't read "comic books" or graphic novels or whatever they are called now since I was a kid. Superheros don't really do anything for me, and the few graphic treatments of literature I'd read seemed forced.

But then a friend recommended this slim volume, and I bought it here on Amazon.

I was very surprised - the expressive b&w art and the very original story are seamlessly complementary, and I was glued to it all the way through. It's a slightly surreal - but also, at the same time, very realistic - story, and while I don't want to give anything away, if you're a fan of LOST or unexplained natural phenomena or things like that I think you'll get a kick out of it.

I am anxiously awaiting the next issue!
Many, many thanks to Moe Hong of Berkeley, CA. If you're reading this, your support means a lot.

In addition to attending SPX (as mentioned below), I'm also planning to drop by the Baltimore Comic Con. It's my hometown Con, and a lot of good folks are setting up shop. Also, it's the new home of the Harvey Awards. Should be a fun show.

The Baltimore Con is September 9-10 at the Baltimore Convention Center

SPX is October 13-14 at the Marriott Bethesda North Hotel & Conference Center

It's always a nice surprise to get a good review after a book has been out for a time. Just such a surprise came today, in this post by Colleen Mondor over at Bookslut (scroll all the way to the bottom - we're a "Cool Read for August").

Thanks, Colleen!

In book news, the script for the second volume is finished, and Joe is hard at work. We're still targeting December/January for a release.

Also, I'll be spending some time this year at SPX in Bethesda, MD. If you plan on coming to the show, or if you're just in the area, please do stop by and say hello.

I like to check the Amazon sales rankings for my books every now and then, just to see. I'm vain that way. And while I know that a graphic novel is likely never going to make it into rarified air, it genuinely makes me feel good that this book seems to consistently avoid dropping off into the abyss. People are picking it up. How many I don't know, but it doesn't so much matter. I am grateful for each and every one of you.

Volume Two is progressing nicely. We'll be posting sketches, artwork, designs, and maybe even script pages as we work our way up to a planned December or January release date. Also stay tuned for some surprises along the way.
