Next March! That's when my book, All Star, will be coming out from NBM Comicslit.
And the work started in earnest two years ago, right after the 2011 M.I.C.E. I'm not much for scripts, so instead I just panel out six panel grids in my sketchbook and fill them up. The first draft was about 200 pages. Some ever-patient friends read it and gave me feedback (thankyouthankyouthankyou). Another 80 pages were drawn based on that feedback. All 280 pages went into this binder, which became the bible for All Star.
The notes on this page were written by Colleen AF Venable. In case you can't read them, the upper corner says, "Opening boring. Needs excitement, if you can't grab them in the first pages, you lose them."
Which is true.

Ted Talk which we had recently watched, and if anybody has spoken to me in the last month for more than fifteen minutes, it has probably come up.

SPX is this coming weekend!! (!!) I just spent this weekend putting together this box of my All Star minis. Twenty boxes total and then there are no more. The big question now is should I put sticks of gum in them to make them like a classic pack of baseball cards (??). Anyway, I'll be at tables N9-N10.
And here's a few some box-making-action-process fotos:
