Emerald City Comicon TFTC variant cover!

I’ll be at the Emerald City Comicon in Seattle in just a few short weeks, March 28-30! Emerald City will premier the TALES FROM THE CON: YEAR 1 collection (which I drew) with the convention-exclusive variant cover below.  If you buy it at the convention, you can bring it over to me at table HH-09 and I will sign it. TFTC writer Brad Guigar will be available in booth 1320! So… looks like we won’t be seated right next to each other as depicted on this cover after all.

If you’ve been to a comic convention, you’ll recognize the scenes in TALES FROM THE CON, the irreverent webcomic that has appeared on the Emerald City Comicon website since 2012.

Written by Eisner-nominee BRAD GUIGAR (HOW TO MAKE WEBCOMICS, Evil Inc.) and illustrated by CHRIS GIARRUSSO (G-MAN, Mini Marvels), TALES FROM THE CON is an uproarious take on the world of comic books and conventions. Fanboys, fangirls, cosplayers, retailers, volunteers, and pros repeatedly collide on the convention floor (and beyond) to prove that comic conventions are one part festival, two parts group therapy.
