Eternal Smile Officially Released Today! 


Woohoo! This is the most visually stunning project I've ever been a part of, thanks to tremendous work by my co-conspirator Derek Kirk Kim. You can find it at your local comic book shop, your local bookstore, or Amazon.com!

And while you're there, check out Secret Identities, the Asian American superhero anthology. I've got a short story in there that I did with Sonny Liew.

ABC-inspired Projects 
Last week I had the pleasure of presenting at the Catholic Library Association conference in Anaheim, CA. There, I met Mr. Lopez, a technology teacher at St. Genevieve Elementary School in Panorama City.

The Eternal Smile 


My next big graphic novel project is The Eternal Smile, a collaboration with Derek Kirk Kim, an internationally celebrated cartoonist and one of my best friends. First Second Books will release it later this Spring... in May, I think. I'm not sure. I don't have a head for dates.

Eternal-Smile-related bits and pieces are slowing making their way onto the Internet. Our publisher has put up a preview. Booklist posted a review, as did The Daily Crosshatch. Newarama did an interview with the two of us, which turned into kind of a lovefest. A manly lovefest, but a lovefest nonetheless.
