I'll post more about this as it gets closer, but just wanted to mention that we've scheduled the official Liar's Kiss Release Party for next month at Williamsburg's favorite comic shop:
Thursday, May 19th, 7-9 PM
Desert Island, 540 Metropolitan Ave, Brooklyn
Sadly, it looks like Jhomar will not be able to make it out from the Philippines, but I'll be there, happy to scribble whatever you like into your very own copy of LK. So if you're in the NYC area, mark your calendars now, hope to see you there...

Fantastic experience at MoCCA this year! Liar's Kiss sold out mid-day Sunday—sorry to anyone who wasn't able to get a copy!
And as always, great to get to catch up with some folks I hadn't seen in a while, put some faces to names I hadn't met before, and of course pick up some great new comics. I haven't quite made my way through all my swag yet, but early favorites include new Matt Wiegle comics (Wiegle for Tarzan, and, even better, his story in Papercutter #13), finally getting a chance to read Benjamin Marra's Night Business (which is just as balls-to-the-wall awesome as everyone keeps saying), Jason Viola's fantastic Who is Amy Amoeba? (which seems to be available to read online at that link--recommended!), Brecht Evans' gorgeous Night Animals (The Wrong Place is next on my list), and Victor Kerlow's genius high-concept sketchbook, "People From Yesterday."
Very curious to hear people's reactions to Liar's Kiss now that it's out in the world... if you're one of the lucky folks who picked one up, I'd love to hear from you! Drop me a line or leave a note in the comments, and hopefully I'll see some of you (and new people besides) at TCAF in Toronto or Heroes Con in Charlotte…
[Blog housekeeping note: I think I'm going to pause the LK preview panels for a bit... if I keep putting them up at this pace I'll have posted the whole book soon! (out of order, but still.) But I'll try to keep the design process posts coming as best I can.]

Thanks to everyone who came out yesterday! I know I missed a few people who came by my table while I was over at the Top Shelf table, or vice versa, but hopefully I wasn't TOO hard to track down. I know we've only got a few copies of Liar's Kiss left, so if you were planning to pick one up today, I recommend coming by the Top Shelf table early...

In case I haven't mentioned it enough, I'm going to be at the MoCCA Festival this coming weekend, selling the usual assortment of comics, prints, (yes, I should have more goldfish prints), etc… and of course, the world-premiere debut of Liar's Kiss!
The MoCCA folks seem to have included my name on the list of "special guests" in the press release, which you might think would indicate they're running low on the "special"… but actually the line-up this year looks pretty great, including Criterion vets Adrian Tomine, Kate Beaton, Victor Kerlow, Scott C., and plenty more great artists besides. And that's not even factoring in the best part of MoCCA, which is discovering some new book or artist that you would otherwise never have heard of. I highly recommend the whole MoCCA experience.
You can find me at either my own table (E17--in the back, toward the middle) or periodically at the Top Shelf table (J5/K5--in the front, on your left as you enter). Come on by and become one of the first people in the world to purchase your very own copy of Liar's Kiss! Come early enough on Saturday and you could be the very first! I will happily note your copy as such, if it is the case. OooOOooh...
Also: for those not in the NYC area, I'm also currently planning on being TCAF in Toronto May 7th-8, and Heroes Con in Charlotte June 3rd-5th, as part of my international book tour! (What? Canada counts!) For those not in any of the above places, there's always Amazon...
Hope to see you this weekend!
