Long Beach Comic Con is Upon Us

Hey folks,
I’ll be heading out to the inaugural Long Beach Comic Con (longbeachcomiccon.com/) this weekend, and I’ve got a few signings, and a couple of panels. Nothing debuting at the show, but, I’ll probably have Punks and assorted other books on hand, so come track me down if you need anything.

Schedule as follows:

Friday – 6:00 – 7:00 pm – Signing – Top Cow
Saturday – 2:00 – 3:00 pm – Signing – Top COw
Sunday – 12:00 – 12:45 pm – Panel – Story and Character
Sunday – 1:00 – 1:45 pm – Panel – Digital Comics Room B

I’ll most likely be in the general vicinity of the good folk at Archaia for the bulk of the show, so, feel free to stop by. I’m the stocky guy with the awesome shirts.

And seeing as I’m not really pimping anything, allow me to point you in the direction of my good buddy Tony Fleecs who’s selling some kickass prints made special for the show. Find out more here: tonyfleecs.blogspot.com/2009/09/first-annual-long-beach-comic-con-this.html

See y’all at the show!

Hey gang,
We’re making up for lost time, and have Chapter 4 up and live a scant two weeks after Chapter 3.  It’s available for purchase on your Kindle for the bargain price of a measly sawbuck.

It’s available here:  www.amazon.com/Tumor-Chapter-4/dp/B002Q1YD3Q/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1253900325&sr=8-5

Plus, if you for some reason are subscribed to this address, yet haven’t checked out Tumor either on your Kindle/iPhone or at the website, perhaps our friends over at AICN can convince you otherwise:

AICN @ssholes Comic Reviews

This hard edged detective story reminiscent of D.O.A. and MEMENTO is getting better from one chapter to the next. Joshua Hale Fialkov writes a tragic tale of a man who is slowly losing his mind. Diagnosed with an inoperable tumor pressing against his brain, Frank Armstrong’s mind is fragmenting. One second he’s in the present working on a case and the next he’s in the past holding a woman he knows he lost long ago. To make matters worse, there’s a dame (of course there’s a dame) that looks a lot like Frank’s old flame in the middle of this case. Frank is completely confused and losing control of his mind and body, but determined to solve this last case before the tumor in his head overcomes him. In this fourth chapter, we find out that Frank also feels no pain. When he realizes he’s broken his leg (he did so in the last chapter in a daring escape from his hospital room), he looks at it with sort of a fascination, in an “oh what’s this” sort of way rather than shock. Fialkov is churning out one great mystery yarn, but also an amazing character study. You really feel sympathetic to Frank as he is stumbling along trying to keep things together in his head. Fialkov paces this story perfectly, flipping reality on its ear just when you’re getting invested in the story at play and the scratchy images by Noel Tuazon become more engaging as the chapters whiz by. His depictions of Frank’s worried brow speak volumes. This is a heartbreaking tale that can’t end well, but I’m still rootin’ for Frank to solve the case. TUMOR is available on Amazon Kindle for download.

So there ya go.  Get gettin’.
