This is the cover to my very first graphic novel The Moon Moth! It is being published by First Second books this Spring. If you’re at all a fan of classic science fiction then you would’ve no doubt encountered the work of Jack Vance. I had a lot fun adapting this fascinating short story. I also learned a lot along the way. My intent was to create an experience distinct yet faithful to the source material.

The book goes on sale this May (presumably to coincide with my birthday :P). You can enter to WIN a free copy at GOODREADS.COM. The contest ends on April 15 so there’s still plenty of time for you to enter. If you wish to preview some of the pages feel free to click here.

And finally, my graphic novel adaptation of The Moon Moth has been awarded “A Junior Library Guild Selection” for Spring 2012! This is a great honor and I’m very excited about it. For your convenience, you may click HERE to learn more about the Junior Library Guild.

And please visit this site again as I will be making it a point to update more often; I have post-it notes everywhere just to remind me (lol). Think in terms of days instead of months this time. See you soon.

    That’s a shame; you really should have a copy of the final product. It looks great! (I received it yesterday.)

      Thanks. Yeah, I expect to get my hands on another copy soon enough. Enjoy the book! Next time you’re in town I’ll be happy to sign it for you.
