Cover of PRATFALL, in progress on 8/16, then the pretty-much-finished version (save for a little photoshop magic) on 8/17. Went with something a little different for this one, and pleased with how it turned out, but now I have #StickyFingers.
Going to have a 3 page comic in Rob Kirby’s new anthology, due out in time for SPX.
Hey, I was just interviewed on The Comix Claptrap! If you want to hear all about how I spend my day, Mr. Wolf, The Zoo Box, and what pen I use.
Thanks to Gina at First Second for taking these photos. The Zoo Box is out now! If you teach or have children or know children who are starting to read or who like comics this is for them! So proud of this book! Check out the amazon listing then buy it at your local bookstore.
I’m trying this again.
Here’s this one again. It’s still summer, so relax.
Mr. Wolf #3 is now available from the online boutique buyolympia.com. I am very proud of this little mini.
The Zoo Box, my new children’s book (a collaboration with my wife, Ariel Cohn) is out early! This is exciting. You can buy it now.
My next zine, coming this fall, is a little anthology called PRATFALL. Yes, from the BRILLIANT MIND (i.e. me) that brought you Tablegeddon last year, comes this collection of stories by cartoonists recalling true painful and/or humiliating accidents. In this new collection of excerpts (from up top) there’s a teenage Jason Viola fooling around on a class trip to Russia, only to take his fateful PRATFALL in “Student Ambassador,” Gabrielle Gamboa has an unfortunate encounter with a cat’s sharp claws (haven’t we all?) in “Unibrow Summer,” and Aron Nels Steinke suffers a nasty poke in the eye (one of my totally least favorite type of accidents). Other PRATFALL cartoonists include Cara Bean, Tony Breed, Neil Brideau, Max Clotfelter, Kelly Froh, Becky Hawkins, Rob Kirby (that’s me), Carrie McNinch, MariNaomi, John Porcellino, Kenan Rubenstein, and Noah Van Sciver. Stay tuned for more of the exquisite pain! (Ordering info coming soon!)
Every once in a while I get invited to do an anthology and I’ve been experimenting with using this rabbit character as my fictionalized stand-in for non Mr. Wolf stuff. This story is about when I took some rebar in my eyeball.

Just online so far. My goal is to get them to Floating World, Cosmic Monkey, Reading Frenzy, Bridge City, and Powell’s sometime next week. Land on Mississippi street should have them by next week, or maybe just at the buyolympia.com site. Thanks for reminding me to get off my butt.
