Wanna Own A Page of Pure Awesomeness? 


Derek Kirk Kim has put some pages from The Eternal Smile up for sale. They look gorgeous in the book, but the originals are absolutely breath-taking. Something about watercolor doesn't scan quite right, so you really have to see these in person to get the full effect. They're pure 100% awesomeness.

CHECK 'EM OUT HERE!

Fu Chang 


This past weekend, Angry Asian Man asked me to do a guest post over at his blog while he was on vacation. I wrote about the racially-insensitive-but-still-slightly-awesome Fu Chang, a Chinese-American funnybook detective from the Golden Age of comics.

If you're interested in reading the Fu Chang stories as they were originally published in Pep Comics, download them for free over at the Digital Comic Museum. You'll need to set up a login for yourself, but isn't a few minutes of inconvenience worth the hundreds of free, public domain comic book downloads? (Uh... Yes. In case you were wondering, the answer is yes.)

More Stuff on Saturday... 
In addition to the Graphic Novel Day activities I mention in the post below, I'll also be visiting the South Regional Library in the Woodlands, TX this Saturday. I'm going to talk about why I make comics. If you're in the area, please come, especially if you're a cartoonist or an aspiring cartoonist. Details here.
