New York comic con - headed home.

Headed back home on bus 1 of 2 this evening. Nycc was great. Had great talks with Bon Alimagno and Olivier Coipel of Marvel comics, Becky Cloonan and Kristian Donaldson the artists behind a whole lot of Brian Wood books.
This year I didn't have a table, and while it would have been outstanding to have a place to drop all my crap, and sit down, it was good to have the ability to run around and meet with all the people I wanted to. Briefly ran into Jim Krueger, he's a busy man! We are both very anxious to get our book The Stand-In done, which is what I'll be sitting down to work on as soon as I'm home.
I will have a table at next years con, and also new books,
So look forward to that, I do.

HABIBI by CRAIG THOMPSON

this is going to be INSANE!

HABIBI, by Craig Thompson...
672 pages....

he has been working on this since BLANKETS...

I read BLANKETS in high school, over 7 years ago... it was why i made my first original graphic novel, REPETITION TO REMEMBER. It was also the book that told me its ok to make GIANT books, like my 300 page NATHAN THE CAVEMAN, and my upcoming SOMETHING LIKE FALLING.

Craig Thompson continues to be one of my biggest inspirations. not just for his art or for his storytelling, but for just DOING IT.

HABIBI, september 20th 2011, 672 pages. wow.
