ComiXology Release & Podcast

Page by Paige is now available thru comiXology!
Wow, the future has arrived!  I don't have an ipad or iphone or whatnot, so I can't wait to see how it looks.  Check out the digital version available for $10.

I'm thrilled to be featured on comiXology!  I've sung their praises before, particularly regarding Reilly Brown and Kurt Christenson's digital comic Power Play. (Plug! Plug!)  Eventually I'd love to create something specifically designed for a digital formal, but for now that goal is alas stuck simmering away on one of my back burners.

And this week I'm interviewed in their PODCAST!  
It's 15ish minutes long but Matt provides some topical markers. Warning: I've been spending an unhealthy amount of time alone in my studio so I embark on some random rambly tangents! I apologize in advance.

Currently Listening: Pulp...This is Hardcore

BCC/ Harvey Awards Recap

This year I didn't have a table, so instead I got to enjoy walking around for once. 
(Here's last year's BCC recap.) But hopefully next year I'll have a table again. Anyway...

This year was my first time attending the Harvey Awards!
I was nominated in five--yes FIVE--categories: 
Best Writer, Lettering, Inking, Original Graphic Novel, and Promising New Talent.  

I didn't win, but that's okay! (As if I could beat out people like Daredevil's Mark Waid for Best Writer. Pshaw. Seriously.) Just to gain recognition for a debut book like this is really more than I could have hoped for.  I'm not sure that I deserve such accolades, but I'll happily take it! This extra validation and exposure will only fuel my efforts as I strive to make my second book into something as inspiring and unique as the first one.
At the awards ceremony, I sat with the Abrams, Dark Horse and Hachette folks...

Oh, and Stan Lee was there! Sorry, this isn't the best photo...

I was thankful for the other artists from our Brooklyn community who kept me from freaking out whenever my awkward panic threatened to kick in: Reilly Brown, Greg Tumbarello, Seth Kushner, Joe Infurnari, Dean Haspiel, and Paul Pope. Thanks, guys!
