Two new books! One big day!

I’ve got two books arriving on November 16!

Sideshow: Fine Art Prints, Vol. 2 has lots of great artwork, and a really nice Boba Fett cover!

Sideshow Collectibles Presents: Capturing Archetypes, Volume 4: Demigods and Defenders: The Balance of Power has the longest title imaginable, but just look for Thanos on the front cover and Grogu on the back cover and you’re all set!

Capturing Archetypes has a fun intro by Bobby Moynihan, a brilliant comedian who’s probably best known for his time on Saturday Night Live. I’m *this close* to being a Not Ready For Prime Time Player, I can feel it.

As always, signed and sketched copies will be available as soon as I receive books from my publisher. Drop me a line for details–cover price plus shipping gets you the character of your choice.

Sideshow Fine Art Prints and Capturing Archetypes

I’ve got two new books coming out from Insight Editions and Sideshow Collectibles this fall!

First up is Sideshow: Fine Art Prints Vol. 2, with a great Boba Fett cover! I’ve been wanting to have a Star Wars book in my bibliography for a long time now, and this is at least a start. In stores October 5!

Then, on November 2, you can add Sideshow Collectibles Presents: Capturing Archetypes Volume 4: Demigods and Defenders: The Balance of Power to your bookshelf! This one was a lot of fun, and it’s a great showcase for the amazing artistry and photography of the team at Sideshow Collectibles. Introduction by the great Bobby Moynihan!

DC: Collecting The Multiverse: The Art of Sideshow was published last fall, and I’ve still got copies available. Drop me a line and you can buy it from me for cover price plus free shipping in the U.S., and I’ll sign it and draw a sketch of your favorite DC character inside. Just drop me a line through the contact form on this site.

Batman at Comic-Con!

Had a great time at the 50th San Diego Comic-Con! I spent most of my time at the Cartoon Art Museum‘s booth, raising funds and awareness about the museum, but also talked a lot about Batman, as we’re gearing up for the release of Batman: The Definitive History of The Dark Knight from Insight Editions this fall.

Photo #1 is me at the Cartoon Art Museum‘s booth at Comic-Con, photo #2 is me at the DC Comics booth, where they had a preview copy of the book on prominent display. Really pleased with all the effort that DC and Insight have put into promoting the book.

 

I also spent some time at the Comic-Con Museum’s Batman exhibit, and gave a slideshow presentation on Batman’s 80-year history, followed by a quick tour of the museum.

A whirlwind, as Comic-Con always is, but lots of fun. I’m hoping to have a full slate of convention appearances this fall, so if you’re a convention organizer, bookstore manager, librarian, educator, or have any other reason to bring a Batman historian to town, please drop me a line!
