Jenny page 4 colors are up

Benj did the colors for Jenny Everywhere Chronicles page 4 and uploaded, replacing the black and white version that was up for about a day.


Comics For Cures Cards

Here is a look at the four cards I turned in this past weekend, for the Comics For Cures auction and event. The proceeds from the sale of sketch cards by various artists benefit the American Cancer Society. The auction on eBay starts March 29th, and the big gallery show and meet and greet with the artists happens Saturday April 4th at Comics2Games in Florence Kentucky.

For a Good Cause

Happening the night before the convention is the COMICS FOR CURES event at Comics2Games (Florence, Kentucky). I am working on my sketch card donations for the event and will be posting them here when I am done, before I send them to the store.

All the cards donated by various artists for the event will go up for auction on eBay for a week to help raise money for the American Cancer Society. The last day of the auctions will be the night of the gallery show event on Saturday April 4th.

It's a great cause, and I hope you will check out the art and if you are moved to do so, bid on your favorite(s)! And if you are in the Kentucky area that night, stop by for the gallery show and mingle with the artists.

For more details, check out the website

Gem City Con Coming Up

I am getting more excited about the Dayton Gem City Comic Con each day. Today, Mark LeMieux told me that he has been officially confirmed. It will be Mark's first-ever convention, and his wife Jonna's second, as she was part of Team Wannabez, dressing up as Mau for me and Brant at last year's Mid-Ohio Con. It's been awesome seeing Mark's sketches come through e-mail to me and I have seen some great unique stuff that I think people will love. They are supposed to have a table right next to mine, and that will be so much fun. I can't wait to introduce them to everyone, and Jonna knows both Brant and Chuck from Mid-Ohio.

A bunch of other friends old and new will be there as well, and if you have a chance to stop up and say hi, please do! Chuck Moore, Bill Gladman, John Wilson, Darren and Krista Mueller, Jackie Hernandez, Eric Adams, Bob Hickey, Chuck Kennedy, Brant and myself will all be there.... most of us with tables! There are also many others I haven't met in person yet from Comic Related who will be there as well, and I can't imagine how fun it would be if we all did dinner together afterwards... plus, I'd be curious if any one place could hold all of us! (Bill Gladman gives a run-down of who in the Comic Related family will be there in his Life in Four Colors column)

In addition to some Wannabez and my own Angelwolf Comics stuff, I will have sketches, sketch cards, and maybe some other original art for sale. I'll have portfolios out showing pages from upcoming projects, some of which are completed but just haven't been released yet by the writer or publisher. I'll be able to do any sketch card request for my very reasonable low price, and have found that to be one of my favorite things to do at shows like OSWCC and KSWCC last year.

If I hear where exactly I am in the hall or in a room, I will let you know here in the news blog, via e-mail (if I have your e-mail) and in my forum at Comic Related.

Dayton Ohio's Gem City Comic Con runs 10-5 Sunday April 5th. More information can be found at

And here is a link to Mark's website, where you can see some of his illustration style and also some of his sculpture work!

Wannabez 1 cover in glorious color!

Here is a look at the final cover for Wannabez #1. I am paying homage and spoofing the classic first appearance covers of the golden age and silver age. This is the second issue of Wannabez, since issue #0 came out last year. Colors are by Ross Hughes, and the lettering is done by the Wannabez mastermind himself, Brant Fowler.

The focus of the #1 issue is Dober-Man, Streak, and Ignition! Great fun, and alot of effort is going into the issue.

An ashcan of the issue is planned to debut at Gem City Comic Con (Sunday April 5th), and the actual final greyscale version should be solicited for the May issue of the Haven Distribution catalog.

Comics2Games Grand Opening

I went to the grand opening of the new Comics2Games (Florence, Kentucky) last Saturday and had a great time, hanging out with friends and celebrating a great looking store, and eating an awesomely cool Watchmen-themed cake. Brant Fowler, Chuck Moore, Katie Riley, Darren and Krista Mueller, Jackie Hernandez, John Wilson, and Eric Adams were there... along with the entire C2G crew, including its owner, Bob Hickey!

Here are some pictures taken by me or that were taken with my camera, and you can see more pictures I took at

I will be back yet again to the store for its Cancer Charity Event "Comics For Cures" on Saturday, April 4th, the night before Dayton's Gem City Comic Con!

Jenny Everywhere Chronicles

The new Jenny Everywhere Chronicles have begun being published online! Benj Christensen is the writer, letterer, and colorist, ...and artist!... until he asked me to step in as the new artist. The strip is very fun to do, and updates weekly on the weekends at

Anytime you hit the link or go to the website, the most current page will show, but there is a very user-friendly set-up in order to go back and forth as needed. Before I was asked to come on board, Benj had already done several stories. So I invite you to check it all out!
