A preview of story #6/Mome 14

So here in merry Michigan I've carved pumpkins, pan-seared brussel sprouts off a freshly frosted stalk with garlic, had my ass handed to me on a platter in bowling, made my sister watch crappy horror movies, and drank that fire water known as Carlo Rossi that my parents still keep around the house. Yes, it's even worse than you remember, but I'll go back to my snobby booze ways soon enough. I-spied some Miller Light in the fridge, must be from when grampa visits..maybe I'll hit that tonight. Last night I finished this story for Mome 14 (due in February 2009).

A Working Holiday/Mome 14 Sneak Peek

I'm miles away from New York at the moment, working on another deadline for the Fantagraphics Mome anthology. My second appearance in the anthology is due early November- a 12 pager done with coffee and ink called The Marriage Tree. More on that later. In the meantime you can check out these five panels from the various stories I've been working on while in Detroit. I figured this time around I'd stretch out a bit and tackle a little bit of everything I'm interested in style wise and draw from some of the short stories I been stashing away. The usual forays into sci-fi parody, ex-girlfriend hijinks disguised as fiction, and various non-sequitors and free floating questions. Once the Mome work is delivered I will begin work on a 96 page graphic novel with writer David Calvo for the french market. Also in the works- a movie poster and possibly another graphic novel..I'll pass on the info once that's been settled. Below are the panel samples from Mome 14- enjoy!
