So huge news, Deviantart, my upcoming graphic novel Friends With Boys will be serialized online until its publication in February 2012 (it'll be available as a hard copy from First Second Books). You can read the first 32 pages of Friends With Boys on its website here: [link]

love this book! :D my fave character's got to be Lloyd XD Will there be, like, a sequel detailing the reasons behind the Widow's hauntings? Is she somehow related to Maggie, Daniel, Lloyd, and Zander? :)

I want to buy it, but I can't find somewhere that delivers on my country (brazil),

Do you know where I can purchase it?

Ohmigosh, I just read this two days ago in the library, and I instantly fell in love with the style and story! I was looking for if there was any fanart of it, and I had no idea the creator of the novel had a dA account! You did an amazing job with this, I love it so much and I love your art style >u<

There are a few vampires and werewolves and a phoenix running around the joint. Tim Burton is making a Dark Shadows movie that is supposed to come out in May. It's probably one of the campiest, cheesiest, most wobbly set-ed soap operas from the late 60s and early 70s and it features David Selby with sweet sideburns.

i remember a lot time ago, i followed your website with all of your drawings. and i remembered the pink-haired girl with the british flag shirt. and then years later i found your zombie comic in a library. and i was like "wait a minute... i think i know this person" and then through your book, i found you on here. and here you have another book coming out. this is such a small world. and good luck with you new book. it sounds so exciting! :)

I've been waiting for this!! :D I read the first 32 pages and they are amazing! I can't wait to see the rest! Just so you know you are a huge inspiration for me. You came to my creative writing class to give a presentation on your creative process. I used to think I wasnt a good enough artist to make a comic, but when I saw the difference in your art in "demonology 101" and now I thought maybe I can make comics. I passed in a few pages of a comic as my final creative project for the class and hope to continue it. Even if this one isnt good :) hopefully I can improve as much as you did! Thanks!

Haha, was that the class that I was late for? Man, I felt terrible about that. Stupid me wrote down the date wrong. Anyway, glad I inspired you. Drawing's a skill, just like anything. Anyone can get better at it if they work hard.
