The Future is Here

It's official!

A few weeks ago, I visited the Manhattan offices of our friends at First Second books to discuss my plans for an original graphic novel that I've been dreaming of for more than two decades, and which, in the last couple of years, has become a full-blown obsession. The three of us—myself, First Second, and the book—got along so well together, that we've decided to get hitched for the above linked-to two-book deal.

This means that I'll be working with a great comics-savvy team and a whip-smart editor, but perhaps best of all, it means that when I travel to New York (which I'll be doing often since the graphic novel takes place in Manhattan) I get to visit their offices in the frickin' FLATIRON building:
