August is turning out to be one of the busiest months of the year. Casanova, Umbrella, Sugarshock and more, all this month. All at the same time.
I guess that's life. A zillion things happening at the same time, and it's in you the possibility to make it all happen, to make it all possible, to make it all come true.
It's up to you.

Mike Wieringo passed away. He was one of the nicest people I've met in the american market, always very enthusiastic about comics, always humble about his own talent and always very supportive of my work. For me, it was great to find someone who been working for so long and hear him talk about discovering new artists, and then realize I caught his attention and was discovered by him.
We never met personally, only exchanging emails and comments on each other's blog. I visited Mike's blog regularly and was always impressed with his discipline. He would do a sketch almost every day just for the blog before he started working on his pages. I talked to my brother all the time about meeting Mike, but we never got the chance.
Thank you, Mike.
We'll miss you.

I've know Brian, owner of Khepri, since 1999. He did the very first review of Roland back then and has been very close to us through all these years. AND he has the most amazing web retail store to find and get comics with amazing prices.
Now, if you could not attend San Diego Comic Con and still want a copy of our exclusive comic "5", you can get it from Brian. Just click HERE and enjoy.
And do it fast, he has not many and they are gonna run out fast.

Casanova 8 is out and about. What did you think of it?
New art style should create some interesting opinions, even if they remain silent. I remember always noticing when a book changed styles (even if the same artist changed his own style on purpose) and it was great when the new style worked for the book.
I'm wondering if I'm working for the book, but I guess, after only one issue in, is still too early to know.

One of the few sketches Bá did at the convention that we photographed, and clearly a very intellectual concern of the modern artist.
But, seriously, where are all the girls? Maybe doing comics like Sugarshock will bring girls to comics. Maybe The Umbrella Academy will bring girls to comics. Maybe even the crazy sexual violence of Casanova will bring girls to comics. I can't answer that yet.
One thing I know, though.
We - my brother and I - bring girls to comics. We write for them, about them and in ways so that guys can understand girls, girls can understand guys, and we all can understand each other.

After we laughed out loud with her review of Pirates of Coney Island, Casey McKinnon does it again at the Comicon, and we just happened to be on her path to destruction (actually, she went to talk to Vasilis, since she had already reviewed his comic, and Vasilis had just released Last Call, but I guess the freak factor of interviewing twins always wins at the editing room).
Also, Dark Horse editor Scott Allie Speaks with Gerard Way and Bá about Umbrella Academy and the story included on the new Dark Horse Presents at MySpace.
