Scenes of passion: a good reason to hire a janitorial service?

This week! Damaged books are 50% off cover price in the store. I have a solid box of books that have been lightly rumpled, bent, or scuffed, and it’s time to share the wealth!  If you’ve been wanting to own your very own copy of Family Man or Bite Me but counting your pennies, this is a nice cheap way to go about it.

Next week! I’ll be at the Emerald City Comicon. I’ll have a new duo of prints for sale that I’ll post next week before I hit the train. Also, if you would like to commission a sketch from me to take home from the convention, I’m taking advance requests! Send me a line at dmeconis [at] gmail [dot] com (or just reply to this post!).

Happy Presidents’ Day!

Happy Presidents Day!

In my defense: sometimes these things just happen when you’re an illustrator. With an eccentric brain.

This little abomination is up for sale on Etsy if you’re looking to decorate!

Hmm whoops, remember that? Well, Ariana does, at any rate.

Newsy news! I will still be at ECCC in a couple of weeks; I’m aiming to have a fancy new print by then!

More importantly – Dark Horse Comics has taken over the publishing duties for Carla Speed McNeil’s absolutely wonderful series Finder. If you haven’t read Finder, you’re missing out on possibly my most favorite ongoing comics work, ever. Friends, if I could, without fear of legal reprisal, eat the heart and subsequently steal the powers of any comics pro: Carla would be on Maryland’s organ transplant list in a skinny minute.

Finder Library Volume 1

Now she’s being edited by my lovely friend Rachel Edidin over at DH, and goddamn it, I am not going to stop screeching at people about it until everybody involved is rich and famous.

Dark Horse has a new website online for the series, and you can pre-order the first volume of the collected Finder and Voice, the latest story from the series already, both at heart discounts. I don’t need to tell you what to do.

Oh, those kids. Those kids and their hanky-panky. People wore a lot of clothes back in the 18th century! And since they had a slightly healthier attitude about sex than their Victorian descendants, you can be sure that a lot of man-hours went into taking them off.

No big news this week from my quarter this week! I’m starting to pull material together for the Emerald City Comicon on March 4-6, and I’m working on the writing side of a couple of projects as well as doing inventory, getting back into singing, and performing other distinctly human tasks. It’s good to get a little downtime.

What sins will be committed in next week’s page? Stay tuned!

…all I’ll say is that some pages are more fun to draw than others.

IN OTHER NEWS:

Bucko

Erika Moen has started her new webcomic with Jeff Parker, Bucko! NSFW fun for the entire family, provided that your entire family likes sweetly lewd murder mysteries that make fun of area hipsters.

Ivy

And freshly hatched in print, Sarah Oleksyk’s wonderful comic Ivy is now out from Oni Press. Ivy is a refreshingly flawed teen protagonist who makes some important but excruciating discoveries about love, art, and growing up. Absolutely recommended – stop by your favorite retailer and pick up a copy!

And lastly, I recently I had the chance to attend a dress rehearsal of Portland Opera’s production of the Puccini opera Turandot along with many of my fellow local cartoonists, on the condition that we all produce some silly drawings. You can see my contributions on Flickr.
