Sharing my newest Mondo poster that was released at SDCC this week. I was happy to find out the 150 copies went sold out even before I got to the Mondo booth and started signing. Thank you so much to everyone for picking it up - Print is GORGEOUS upclose :)
Here’s a look at Eleanor Davis is 2014 SPX library gift bookplate. We’re so thankful to Eleanor for creating this great piece and LIKEWISE grateful that she’ll join us as a special guest at SPX in just a few short weeks.
That’s another way of saying what the heck are you doing the weekend of September 13? If it ain’t Spx you’re missin’ out!

COMIC BOOK CLOSE UP

New Gods #4 (Sept. 1971)

So I REALLY enjoyed Gene Luen Yang and Sonny Liew’s The Shadow Hero, a new book that First Second Books released this week. It’s an origin story of an existing pulp hero, the Green Turtle, and it’s an engaging, very funny, exciting story.
There’s some great supplemental material about the original 1940s Green Turtle, the first Asian-American superhero, and the clever ways in which its creator circumvented the publisher’s mandate that he had to be white.
I’m a sucker for books or films that I recognize as being shoe-ins for the I-would-have-flipped-my-lid-over-this-if-it-had-been-around-when-I-was-a-kid stories, and SHADOW HERO definitely fits that bill. There are a few books that I get multiple copies of whenever I run across them to hoard as gifts; this one will join that list.
Anyway, I did a poster!
Awesome poster, awesome book!
