After a run of long days and nights I finished Rachel Rising #16 this morning as the sun came up and promptly sent it off to the printer via ftp. A couple of hours—literally—later the proof was up online and BAM! it’s done, Rachel Rising 17 is now in the hands of a vast network [...]
In the category of you can’t handle the truth comes this behind-the-scenes report. It’s a survivor’s journey, a tale of loss and resurrection in the life of a comic book series.
This is the cover of Echo 30.
Almost immediately after I finished making this book, the final issue of Echo, my computer hard drive died and [...]
Pre-orders for the Strangers In Paradise Omnibus are coming in and they are so very much appreciated. We had a nice run of orders for the first few days by informed folks who were waiting for the door to open. And I’ve asked—well, begged—people to spread the word to the rest of the world. I [...]

No other tpb or pocket edition got [...]
A number of years back, during the years I was making Strangers In Paradise, a reader sent me a picture of this cloissone pin from the Austin Hard Rock Cafe because, well, the girl looked awfully familiar. Recently he saw the pin at a collector’s market and bought it for me. SiP readers were incensed [...]
I didn’t know Drew Hayes very well when we shared a table at a small Dallas comic convention many years ago. He was big, loud and generally a happy guy and you knew if he was in the room, if for no other reason but the fact that his hair was always a different, bright [...]
This has been a good news week for me. First, my Italian publisher BAO informed me that Rachel Rising was awarded a Comicus Prize for Best Independent English Language Comic, and I won Best Artist/Writer. Coming from a country known for the arts, this award means a lot and I am very honored.
