Awsome 2: Awesomer
Indie Spinner Rack's Mr. Phil is starting to announce the creators involved with their second anthology, Awesome 2: Awesomer on the ISR forum, and so I suppose it's finally official! I have a story in the book, to be published this May by Top Shelf! Here's the info:
You can't keep a great indie anthology down! The boys at Indie Spinner Rack
have been producing the premiere indie comics podcast for over three years,
and in 2007 produced the aptly-titled AWESOME anthology. Now they're back,
along with a few dozen of their friends and favorite guests... who happen to be
some of the greatest cartoonists in the industry!
A 200+ page 6x9 softcover anthology with bonus mini-comic. $14.95 retail.
Once again half the proceeds will go to a student scholarship to the Center for Cartoon Studies.

Above is a panel from my story, "Meet My Girlfriend The Hopping Vampire!" Already a little outdated, as Michele and I were recently married, but an enjoyable tale of love, life, and the undead nonetheless!
