Appearances/ Comics

I briefly appear startlingly productive as a comics creator

Though, really, all the credit goes to Ron Chan, Cat Ellis, and Dylan Meconis, the illustrators of, respectively:

Flytrap: Episode Three: Over the Wall: The story behind Bishop’s first tattoo.


Einbahnstrasse Waltz: High school orchestra trip to Vienna. Gin and tonic, marzipan, angst. A standalone story.


and Click: A snapshot of Battle’s senior year in high school, between Empress and Rules. Let’s just say she won’t be going to any reunions.


All three will debut at Comic-Con and shortly thereafter make their way onto ComicSpace. Needless to say, I am thrilled!

And about Comic-Con: again, I’ll be there Friday through Sunday. You’ll be able to find me some of the time in Artist’s Alley at table II-03, and on Sunday on this panel:

11:30-1:00 Comics Are Not Literature—For years, comics have presented themselves as a new kind of literature—but cartooning isn’t prose, and graphic novels aren’t novels. What if conflating comics with “literary” storytelling is a terrible mistake? Douglas Wolk (Reading Comics) moderates what should be a contentious discussion with Cecil Castellucci (The PLAIN Janes), Dan Nadel (PictureBox Inc.), Austin Grossman (Soon I Will Be Invincible), Paul Tobin (Spider-Man Family), and Sara Ryan (The Rules for Hearts). Room 8

Over and out. Time will tell if I can post anything from the show…

    not yet, but it will be. its continuity in the empress-verse, btw, is that it’s nic’s orchestra, but she’s not on the trip because she was at the siegel institute that summer. :)
