  4. This weekend, Oct. 4-5, is the Massachusetts Independent Comics Expo (MICE)! It’s in Porter Square, Cambridge, and admission is free!

    I’ll be at table A31 selling spanky new MINICOMICS! Come and check out Gross Vocabulary, the first collection of my grad school diary comics. It’s got what I’ve posted previously online plus new stuff exclusive to the print version.

    I’m also a judge for the Iron Cartoonist contest on Saturday at 2:30pm and a panelist at the Sunday morning "Comics in the Classroom" symposium (RSVP required for that one).

    I am so proud of my pals in Boston Comics Roundtable for putting on this festival every year. This is the 5th annual show, and it gets more polished and more fun every single year. And most importantly, they keep the admission free. This lets so many people drift in and dip their toes into indie comics for the first time.

    The Kitchen is finally coming out!

    Order #1 with code SEP140334.

    A hardboiled, fabulously coiffed gangster tale of three Irish mob wives in 1970s Hell’s Kitchen, drawn by me, written by Ollie Masters, colored by Jordie Bellaire, and with covers by Becky Cloonan. Eight issues of fun and stuns start soon!

    MariNaomi asked a few POC cartoonists (including myself) to offer some advice about creating colors of character. It’s good stuff!

    My Least Favorite Trope (and this post will include spoilers for The Lego Movie, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Matrix, Western Civilization, and—cod help me—Bulletproof Monk*.) is the thing where there’s an awesome, smart, wonderful, powerful female character who by all rights ought to be the Chosen One and the hero of the movie, who is tasked with taking care of some generally ineffectual male character who is, for reasons of wish fulfillment, actually the person the film focuses on. She mentors him, she teaches him, and she inevitably becomes his girlfriend… and he gets the job she wanted: he gets to be the Chosen One even though she’s obviously far more qualified. And all he has to do to get it and deserve it is Man Up and Take Responsibility.

    And that’s it. Every god-damned time. The mere fact of naming the films above and naming the trope gives away the entire plot and character arc of every single movie.

    I never thought about it like this before, not in conscious terms, but yeah, I’ve noticed this, too. This is really crappy!

    Sequence 01:The Break-Fist Club
    KICKFLIP INTO ACTION! Ramp City High School has a big problem: students are turning into monsters whenever they’re faced with stress — and for teenagers, there’s stress around every corner. Good thing skateboard champ Theo and tech whiz Ria are there to stop them, but when the mid-term menace of Testor tears up the library, will they be thrashed before they even start?

  10. Anonymous said: What is the one piece of advice you give to people who want to write?


    1) Always be writing. Carry a notebook or two or three and use it. Even offhanded little bits can get salvaged.

    2) Don’t talk too much about what you’re writing. Write what you’re writing.
