John P. has a PATREON. / King-Cat 82 is OUT.

Thursday, April 28, 2011


Yes, your intrepid slogger is going back out on the road.  Firstly, I'll be attending the Midwest Zine Fest in Champaign-Urbana, IL, then I'll be heading up to Canada to promote the release of a new book called The Next Day, published by Pop Sandbox of Toronto.  (This is a "graphic novel" based on a documentary film about four Canadians who've attempted suicide, but survived.  The book was written by Paul Peterson and Jason Gilmore, and illustrated by yours truly.)  Then I'll head back down into the States with a stop at Walden Pond!  Dates, times, info below...  See you there!
