The creators of Burn the Orphanage announce a followup to their video-game inspired comic and share some exclusive artwork.
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):
What is this and what does it have to do with me and Amber Benson??? Tomorrow at Central Coast Comic Con in Ventura we will be letting fans and friends know!!! We’ll be signing from like 11A-5:30PM stop by and get excited. We will have a little something to share during the con.
Amber and I did a kids book together a few years back called, Among the Ghosts. If you haven’t checked it out, it’s some of her most fun and whimsical writing, and it’s some of my most fun and whimsical art.

Amber and I will tweet some more news in the morning!
My favorite thing about making new comics? Going on tour and visiting all my friends in various cities around the nation!
Starting this weekend, I’m gonna be back on the road, back on planes, living in and out of a big fat suitcase, and promoting the heck out of Burn the Orphanage. I’m lucky because this time I have Daniel with me on some of the stops.
Please make sure and stop by. We begin this weekend in Annapolis, Maryland, premiering the book ON MY BIRTHDAY. It’s gonna be the bomb.
I wrote the intro for the new trade of LIL DEPRESSED BOY so @depressedboy and @sinagrace drew me into it!!! It “hits the shelf” this Wednesday, May 15. This is a great comic, read it!
Out tomorrow! Li’l Depressed Boy, Volume 4: Love is a Place. Jonah’s intro truly is the sweetest/ best.
Sequential Smarts - the best thing ever.
Inspired by the illustrative world of Gary Baseman as explored in the exhibition Gary Baseman: The Door Is Always Open, attend this panel of graphic novelists as they discuss the conceptual underpinning of contemporary graphic storytelling and L.A.’s central place in the world of the graphic novel.
Like Gary Baseman, many graphic novelists use illustration to depict fantastic worlds of their own making. Panelists Sina Grace (Not My Bag and Li’l Depressed Boy), Hope Larson (A Wrinkle in Time, Who Is AC?), Nick Thorburn (author of What a Gas and lead singer of the band Islands), and Malachi Ward(Expansion, Utu, and Ritual) discuss their work and the world of the graphic novel. A Q&A and book signing follow the program.
Sponsored by The Skirball Cultural Center, and The Secret Headquarters, this is going to be an event to remember. All attendees get a limited edition print of the image above (signed by all four panelists).
Wednesday, May 8, 8:00 p.m.
