First, First Second recently published Prime Baby, which collects a short story I did for the New York Times at the end of 2008.
Second, Animal Crackers from SLG Publishing collects my first two graphic novels Gordon Yamamoto and the King of the Geeks and Loyola Chin and the San Peligran Order. I've also added a short twelve-page comic at the end where I talk about my process.
Available RIGHT NOW! from your neighborhood comic shop, your local independent bookstore, or Amazon.com.

Festival of Faith & Writing at Calvin College. I generally enjoy talking about comics, but I'm especially excited about this event because I get to talk about comics and God! I sometimes imagine Heaven to be a place where past, present, and future are juxtaposed like panels on a page of comics. Eesh. That seems a lot goofier now that I've written it down.

I found out late last week that "Urgent Request," the last story in The Eternal Smile, was nominated for an Eisner! I have to tell you, I'm extremely proud of that story. Derek did an such a phenomenal job on everything, from the layouts to the pacing to the watercolors in the Nigeria sequence. I haven't checked out the other nominated short stories yet, but I'm especially excited about reading Nick Bertozzi's.

If you want to see the sort of crazy formalist oomph-itude the comics medium is capable of, you need to go buy this book now. It will pop your mind grapes. Seriously.
