I know it’s been another long while since my last post but I hope to change that over the next couple of days. Once again, I’ve entered a very dense work period leaving me little time to post updates. It’s a bit of a double-edged sword. I’d love a little more time to keep up with my posts, but I’ve gotta grab the work when it comes and my latest project is a real blast.
Now that its been announced, I’m free to talk about this… I’ll be writing and drawing Animal Jam for Dynamite Entertainment. For those not familiar with Animal Jam, Animal Jam is a popular game from National Geographic that teaches kids about animals and the natural world. I’ve written and I’m in the process of drawing the art for an ANIMAL JAM FREE COMIC BOOK DAY SPECIAL. I’ve posted the cover above. The art is by me with beautiful colors by the amazing Pete Pantazis. Of course the Animal Jam FCBD Special will be available at comic shops everywhere on Free Comic Book Day 2017. Free Comic Book Day traditionally falls on the first Saturday in May and as usual, I’ll be spending my Free Comic Book Day at one of my favorite comic shops in the World, Dewey’s Comic City in beautiful Madison, New Jersey. Dewey’s owner, Dan Veltre, very generously always tells me it wouldn’t be Free Comic Book Day without me and I wouldn’t dream of missing one… especially THIS Free Comic Book Day!
It’s going to be a big FCBD for me! Not only will the Animal Jam FCBD Special be out, but Die Kitty Die’s publisher, the great CHAPTERHOUSE COMICS will be putting out their own Captain Canuck Free Comic Book Day Special featuring an original eight-page Die Kitty Die story by Dan Parent and myself. This story entitled “It’s My Beach Party And I’ll Die If I Want To,” features Kitty teaming up with other Chapterhouse Characters like The Pitiful Human Lizard, Freya from Rossi Gifford’s Spirit Leaves, and more! Don’t miss it! And as a reminder… Chapter house’s DIE KITTY DIE #4 goes on sale in January! Make sure your comic shop orders plenty of copies!
Back to Animal Jam, following the Free Comic Book Day Special, I’ll be writing and drawing an Animal Jam series for Dynamite. Each issue will feature two ten-page stories. I’ll be writing one and drawing both. It’s going to be great! Stay tuned for more details on that!
Any questions, comments.. please let me know below! I promise I answer in a timely manner! Thanks!
