Great Con!

Appleseed Comic Con is over and it was a great time for me! Got to hang out with my brother, talk comics with people.

 Appleseed Comic Con!

Talk shop with cool creators like Nate Utesch, Andy Jewett, Paul Hornschemeier, Tim Baron and a whole bunch of others!

It was my most successful con to date. With very little overhead this year I did pretty well with the mini comics I took, did about 15 commissions and sold some backstock! All in all it was pretty Awesome!

Zack Kruse, the organizer is a righteous man! He works tirelessly for others and for the love of comics and it makes you want to work hard for others too. His enthusiasm is contagious, he's super smart, he's a good comic writer and a good bud!

Hope you all had a good Mother's Day and a great weekend!

Free Comic Book Day!

Hey! I'll be over at Clem's Collectibles in Jefferson Pointe from 10-2 on Saturday for Free Comics Day! I'll be there to help celebrate the art of comics and get people excited about them!

I'll be doing sketch commissions for $5 and kids under 10 can get a free doodle!

I'll have 15 preview copies of my new Mini comic The Long Assignment, a few Lunchbox Doodles and a couple The Cauldron in the Back Cabinet. Come on by and check it out!

There's usually a little something for everyone in the free stuff! And you get the added bonus of saying "Hi!" to me!

New Books!

Hey kids! New books! Actually, these books are geared more towards adults, but Red Rocket has some new stuff to offer for this year's comic con! They will be available starting at The Appleseed Comic Con! If you pre-order it now you can get a free sketch and be guaranteed a copy. You can swing by my table at Appleseed, say "Hi!" and pick up your copy. 
Click the PayPal buttons on the banner to the right to order.

I call these micro-mini comics. Short stories, 12 pgs each. I want them to be exercises in restraint, genre and contained, specific story telling.

The Long Assignment is a slow boiler genre about neighborhood people who aren't quite what you think they are. This book builds a short burst of a story from a few of my obsessions: The extraordinary hiding in the ordinary, building fictions around the people I see everyday but don't really know, and Cold War era spies....

 Hummingbird is another micro-mini comic exploring another genre I love: Space. A man finds himself reflecting on his life before space and the things that matter as he grapples with an unpleasant reality. The story is as much about the comfort of love as the emptiness of deep space.
(17+ for some adult themes)

If you live in the Fort Wayne area, I'll drop one by your house and save you shipping. If not, sorry, but I think you'll be glad you ordered it anyway!

I will be signing books at Clem's Collectibles in Jefferson Pointe for Free Comic Day on May 4th and will have a limited quantity of the book then, too. Hope to see you out!
