See you at APE in San Jose this weekend!



I’ll have Eastman/Laird bookplate editions of TMNT: The Ultimate Visual History available at booth #206!  I’m staffing both my own booth and the Cartoon Art Museum‘s booth this year, as always, and will be joined by the great Gene Luen Yang on Saturday and the double-great Thien Pham on Sunday.  This is my SIXTEENTH YEAR at this convention, and it’s always one of my favorites.

Hey, look! It’s Gem’s Book Nook!

Thanks to Gem for this glowing review of The Looney Tunes Treasury!  It’s hard to believe that it’s already been seven (!) years since its publication, and about eight years since I started writing it.
The review’s here, and I suggest you bookmark Gem’s site so that you can keep up with the rest of her reviews, since she’s obviously got great taste in literature:


I’m still plugging away on my slightly-delayed history of 1980s TV animation, but it’s going to be worth the wait.  The postponement’s allowing me time to add a few more big-name interview subjects, find even more artwork to include in the book, and might even let me add another show to the mix.  My editor thinks we can branch out into other decades and maybe even go back to the eighties for a follow-up if this goes well, and I’ll keep you posted as all of this comes together.

In the meantime, I’m contacting interview subjects for my next book, and if all goes well, I’ll have two books hitting the shelves next year.  Stay tuned!

San Diego Comic-Con 2016

My schedule for the San Diego Comic-Con is taking shape!

On Thursday afternoon, I’m hosting a panel discussion called Something For Everyone: Indie Comics, featuring Emily Carroll, Lisa Hanawalt, Jennifer Hayden, Keith Knight, and Ed Luce!

On Friday, from 11am-12pm, I’ll be at the Insight Editions booth (#1703) signing TMNT: The Ultimate Visual History!

My homebase the rest of the convention will be the Cartoon Art Museum‘s booth, #1930, as we host our tenth annual Sketch-a-thon fundraiser.  Ten bucks gets you a customized convention sketch from me or any of the dozens of other artists we’re hosting from Thursday to Sunday.
