Friends and family:

This is just a quick reminder that I’ll be appearing at COMIX REVOLUTION in Mt. Prospect, Ill., on Saturday, March 26, to celebrate the release of HOPE: THE HERO INITIATIVE, a graphic novel anthology benefiting the Hero Initiative charity.

With me will be fellow comic-book creator Russell Lissau (Shrek, Batman Strikes), a good friend and regular convention partner. We’ll be signing copies of HOPE: THE HERO INITIATIVE, as well as copies of last year’s all-ages hit READING WITH PICTURES and our other various comics. And if you ask nice, we’ll doodle in your sketchbook, your notebook or any other kind of book with blank pages you put before us.

We’ll be at Comix Revolution from 2 to 4 p.m. The store is in downtown Mt. Prospect at 115 W. Central Road. For more on the store, visit

Thanks for your continued support,
