NYCC starts October 8 this week and I will be meeting up with my co-authors! Jonathan and Mike have been on the road since we debuted The Comic Book Story of Beer in Denver. They’ve been in Minneapolis, MN at DANGEROUS MAN BREWING COMPANY, Iowa City at BACKPOCKET BREWING COMPANY, Kansas City, MO at BARNES & NOBLE, Chicago, IL at BEERMISCUOUS CRAFT BEER CAFE, and Toronto Canada at THE BEGUILING BOOKS AND ART / PAGE & PANEL: THE TCAF SHOP. Today they’ll be in Ann Arbor, MI at NICOLA’S BOOKS, tomorrow in Akron, OH at LIZARDVILLE BEER STORE & WHISKEY BAR/BARNES & NOBLE, and then Oct. 8-11 for NEW YORK CITY COMIC CON. It doesn’t even end there! Check the WEBSITE for the complete list.

I’m looking forward to RCCC next Friday, but examining my inventory of The Comic Book Story of Beer comps, I’m afraid I may not have enough to get me through the weekend. It looks like I’m just shy of 20 copies and since the book won’t be officially released until Sept 22nd, I’ll have to go with what I’ve got. If you’re planning to be at RCCC and want to ensure that you’ll be able to pick up a copy while supplies last, drop me an email and we can work out the details. I’m also up for doing a sketch in the book beforehand if you order ahead of time. During the con I probably won’t do much beyond a signature and a quick doodle, but if you want something more like the examples below, please contact me this week.
It’s an exciting time for The Comic Book Story of Beer. Reviews are starting to trickle in like this ARTICLE on suvudu.com! It’s great to hear that people are enjoying it! Cheers!

Summer’s winding down, and I guess that means it’s time for me to start blogging again. The Comic Book Story of Beer comes out in just over a month (Sept. 22nd) and we have NPR to thank for letting people know about it. Check out this article/interview by Alastair Bland: Guzzling 9,000 Years Of History With ‘The Comic Book Story Of Beer’

Following my previous post about Studio Paradiso, I decided to add some of the life drawing I’ve been doing this year. I added a page to this website under the header Life Drawing Gallery. I haven’t yet graduated to sessions longer than 45 minutes, but I’m hoping to work up to it this year. Let’s see how I do! 😉
