THE STORY OF LEE versus CAPITALISM!

I was pleased by a very positive review of THE STORY OF LEE in the Midwest Book Review recently. I’m keen on having my stuff in more libraries, since I rather like libraries – they have books there! The reviewer hoped for sequels, and that is of course our plan – 3 volumes in total. […]

The Book Expo America was quite a success, well attended and busy. It was actually quite amazing how many comics publishers were absent from DC to Fantagraphics and frankly they missed out!
