Watch me talk comics on YouTube--- LIVE

I'm going to be a guest on the Comics Are Great podcast with the awesomely named Jerzy Drozd on Wednesday, April 16th at 12:30 pm. Now you might be saying-- since when does a podcast have a specific time? Well, Comics Are Great is streamed live over Youtube with real, moving images! You can also watch and/or listen after the fact if you're going to be otherwise occupied. But if you watch live, who knows, I might goof up something spectacularly. Don't you want to see that happen?

More NYC area Poseidon Appearances

I'm continuing to appear around town promoting my latest book, Poseidon: Earth Shaker.

 If you're going to be attending MoCCAfest this year, I'll be signing Poseidon and other volumes of Olympians at the FirstSecond booth at 11:30 on Saturday, April 6th. You can also catch me at the table for DaretoDraw from 1-2:30.

Later that day, I'll be celebrating the launch of Poseidon at the new Powerhouse books in Park Slope. That's Saturday, April 6th at 4 PM.

And I'll be part of a group show on April 20th at NYC's famed Books of Wonder .

Hope to see you there!
