(no subject)

I know, I know, It's been way too long since I posted. Things have been very busy, what with two tours in France to promote Courtney Crumrin and Polly and the Pirates, plus all kinds of other distractions. Also, my 2007 schedule has been up in the air till now. What with everything, I somehow managed to fall months behind on Death Junior series 2, and I'm totally panicked about it. It's completely my fault. Backbone is screaming for my blood, and rightly so. But I'm in the home stretch now, and it's about time to announce my next few projects.

First of all, I'm going to appear at the New York Comic-Con on the 24th and 25th of February. Sorry for the short notice. If any of you folks are going to be at the convention, please come by and say hello. I'll be making an official announcement there, but here's the unofficial pre-announcement. This year will bring (drumroll, please) a NEW COURTNEY CRUMRIN BOOK!

Yes, it's true, the next chapter in the grand Courtney saga will come out starting in August. This time, it's going to come out a little different. Instead of four individual chapters, the forthcoming installment will appear in two perfect-bound 48 page editions; before being bound together into a single digest at the end of the year. The final collection will be the same charming mini-format as the first three, while the two issues will look more like the Portrait of the Warlock one-shot.

The format change has not been decided for sure, but this is what we're leaning toward. Also, while the schedule hasn't been set in stone yet, you can rely on the first issue making it in time for Comic-con International in San Diego. More info on this will appear here as it develops.

That's all for now, folks. Stay tuned for more updates soon.

PS: Check out my new Wikipedia entry. The pic is from the end of my recent trip to France, in the beautiful city of Tours. Do I look as tired as I felt?
