Have you told your kind retailer to order Burn the Orphanage: Born to Lose #3 for you yet?
It’s the epic and unexpected finale of the Born to Lose trilogy. If you have enjoyed the series thus far, trust me: you’ll want this issue. Details for the future of BtO will be announced in coming weeks (wink).
The book is out March 5th from Image Comics. It’s $4.99 and has 42 pages of my best art yet. The diamond codes are below so your local comic shop has no excuses. You can pick between my cover or Tomm Coker’s cover (which Daniel beautifully colored):
Sina Grace returns to slice-of-life roots with a new collection of autobiographical strips
Image Comics has announced today that they will be publishing writer/ artist Sina Grace’s collection of autobiographical strips for April’s self-contained and self-referential, Self-Obsessed. The oversized one-shot marks the first time that over a decade’s worth of Grace’s comics will be seen in print.
After spending 2013 touring the successful and blood-soaked Burn the Orphanage series, Grace opted to take a moment to revisit the sandbox where fan-favorite Li’l Depressed Boy and critically adored Not My Bag reside. Originally packaged as a digital exclusive, Self-Obsessed expands on the themes explored in Grace’s previous work and goes deeper: “I feel like I’ve been teetering between mainstream and indie,” confessed Grace. “Self-Obsessed is a fun middle ground for the fans who love my slice-of-life stories like Not My Bag, and for the readers who got behind the raucous romp that is Burn the Orphanage. Plus—how fun are convenient one-shots jam-packed with quirky insights?” With delights culled from dozens of sketchbooks, and years of rare strips, the 40 page one-shot will also include several new stories that bridge show how an artist who was trapped in retail hell became one of Image Comics’ fledgling creators.
SELF-OBSESSED explores the brain of a cartoonist who is hilariously confused about many things in life: love, work, frenemies… with one exception: Sina Grace’s devotion to comics.
SELF-OBSESSED arrives in stores on 4/2, and will be available for $3.99. It can be pre-ordered using Diamond Code: FEB140508.
