Next Con: Mad Monster Party, Charlotte, NC, March 21-23

This past weekend was MGA Con in Macon, GA. The show as a blast and it was great to see so many people get excited to hear about "Bee Sting: The Movie". Hit up that Kickstarter guys!

Coming up next, Michael R. Carr and I will be sharing some table space at Mad Monster Party in Charlotte, NC from March 21-23.


I set up at the show last year and it was amazing. Everything horror you could imagine under one roof with some of the nicest fans who were anxious to read some of my books. Michael will have copies of his new comic, "Quiver", on hand (which I also lettered and formatted) and I'll, of course, have "Blood-Drenched Creature Double Feature" and "Simon Says" for sale.

Hope to see you guys there!

Til next time,
Matthew

Next Con: MGA 2014 on March 15 & 16

More news coming soon, regarding the "Bee Sting" movie, "The Adventurers of Liberty City" #10 release, and the "Simon Says" collection graphic novel, but until then...

What's my next convention, you may ask?

You can see I've updated that handy dandy list to the right (and a few more shows will be added in the coming weeks), but next up is the Middle Georgia Comic Con in Macon, GA on March 15 and 16.


It's their very first con and I was pretty excited to hear about such a large con coming to my hometown area. I got the chance to help out a little with compiling the guest list, and it's quite awesome. Hope to see some of you there!

Til next time,

"Simon Says: The Complete Series" Cover

Can I brag a little now? Sure, I'm entitled...
Here's the cover to the upcoming "Simon Says: The Complete Series" graphic novel! Penciled and inked by Desiree Pittman with colors by Christine Brunson.

And yeah, you read that correctly...a foreword by none other than Matt Fraction himself. Pretty groovy, eh?

Looks like the graphic novel will be about 250 pages...I'm wrapping it all up now! More details soon on what's included and the release date.

Til next time,

February Updates!

Lots of big updates here...

* "Quiver" #1 is finished and off to the printers! This dark tale written by Michael R. Carr features artwork by Jason Flowers and I helped out with the lettering and page formatting. It will be released in time for Mad Monster Party next month.

* A lot of progress was made on "The Adventurers of Liberty City" #10 this past week...yes, finally! This issue features two separate 10 page stories, one drawn by me and the other drawn by Brad Jaskula. I have two pages to ink before I move on to lettering them. I should also be working on the cover this week as well, so I'll be posting a sneak of that very soon as well.

* We're getting closer and closer to the "Simon Says" graphic novel release. I've been working hard on formatting and compiling all the stuff for bonus pages, finalizing the cover with the artists, and securing an awesome introduction by someone pretty amazing! The entire books looks like it's going to be roughly 260 pages...pretty massive and great! Check back here for more info soon.

* Some updates have been made to the con listing and I'll be adding more in the next several weeks. Due to the overwhelmingly positive response I had at the Charlotte Minicon to the sketch covers, I'll be sure to have more of these to offer.

Til next time,
Matthew

COMIC BOWL 2014 - Sunday, Feb 2!

Whether you're a fan or not, the Superbowl is this coming Sunday...

Yippee...(insert sarcastic tone)

If any of you have friends on Facebook who regularly watch football, I'm sure you see your feed clogged with play-by-play action. I'll click on Facebook only to see someone cryptically post "Oh my God! I can't believe that happened! It's the worst!" I immediately think something serious has happened to one of their family members, another friend, a household pet, structural damage, something. But no...it's just shock and disappointment over a fumble. I don't realize this until I see their last 30 posts have been related to the game they are watching. I jokingly told my sister that I was gonna do this with comics one day...and that day is coming!

While everyone else is posting about the Superbowl, I will be posting about COMIC BOWL 2014 on Facebook!


That's right...during the entirety of the game, I will be posting random comic book news, pictures, thoughts, and maybe even do a panel-by-panel reading to go along with the play-by-play. There will even be a special half-time "show". So, I'm urging all my comic fans to join me in posting comic stuff for COMIC BOWL 2014! If you aren't already on my Facebook page, use the link over to the right...see you on Sunday!

Matthew
