June 11th, 2014 saw the release of my new Image Comics book RED CITY. I visited shops all over L.A. and signed copies, talked to folks, had a great time.

Thanks to wunderkinds Amy Dallen and Harley Salbacka for endorsing the book. Special thanks to House of Secrets in Burbank, Blastoff in North Hollywood, and Meltdown and Golden Apple in Hollywood. And thank you to all the comic shops nationwide who ordered it, and to the lovely and amazing readers that picked up, read it and tweeted and blogged about it. I love all of you.

Cheers to all! RED CITY issue #2 out in July!!!
