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!
