It may be a cold, wet spring at the moment, but this August, GIRL will arrive to end the summer with a wetter, albeit hotter, experience.
This book will not disappoint, and it's the best work I've ever done since Ive started in comics. But I'll leave that up to the discerning, and most patient, fans I've ever had the pleasure of working for.
I hope you're all still here in a few months to let me know what you think. I look forward to it.

Well, we're just three months in, so it's still a relatively New Year.
I was hoping once I'd finished the last GIRL book, my other projects would be done in quick succession, but the post GIRL world has brought with it a different set of problems, one of which was the difficulty in moving on. For the past eight years I'd been working on volume four of The Second Coming and, once it was done, it was like a relationship had ended. Couple that with some other issues that I won't go into, and you have the fixings of a very difficult hill to climb in terms of creativity, something I've never experienced before.
I'm sure most people view comic book artists as unfeeling automatons just cranking out pages at a time-and how I wish that were true-but the last few months have been rough. But, I'm getting over it. Last week, I finally finished painting the pages for EVERYTHING'S ANJEE and the next step is to letter it, my least favorite activity. Not to mention, my website is still undergoing problems. I'm trying to get some info from my webmaster, so, once again I ask you all to bare with me for a bit longer. I'm doing my best under some very strange circumstances and I'm trying not to let my work suffer for it.
Easier said than done, I know, but I'm working on it.
