So we will have two panels and signings with many publishers. For all of you who are attending the convention, look for the schedules of these publishers and you might find us.


After that, we're going to the cold lands of Toronto, Canada, as guest of TCAF (Toronto Comic Arts Festival). We have two commitments so far:

- TCAF 2012 KICK-OFF EVENT! Jeff Smith, Gabriel Ba, and Fabio Moon in conversation!
Noir and the Fantastic in Comics and Graphic Novels
Friday, May 4th, @ 7:00pm
@ Toronto Reference Library, 789 Yonge St.
in The Bram and Bluma Appel Salon
Free to attend, registration required.
- We have a spotlight on our work sometime on sunday, May 6th, and we'll talk about how you can't turn back once you discover all the different possibilities of comics as a language.

We'll have some signings, I guess, and a table where we can hang out, but we want to walk the floor a lot and discover new stuff and authors.

We expect to have lots of fun on both conventions and meet lots of people.
See you guys around!

Casanova Avaritia trade is coming

It's coming in July. You should go to your comic book store and make sure your store person orders the book for you. You'll probably need to order two books, to read the story twice, and then you'll understand it. And it will be awesome.

here's the solicitation:

Art and Cover by GABRIEL BÁ
From the writer of Marvel's smash hit FEAR ITSELF and the artist of the best-selling book Umbrella Academy comes one of the most critically acclaimed series of the year! On the run from ten thousand parallel worlds that want him dead, Casanova Quinn, the world's sexiest and savviest superspy, fights tyrant and hero alike. Now Cass and Sasa Lisi, his girlfriend from beyond tomorrow, must flee from space-time itself, aim one batch of enemies at the other, kill everybody, and save everything, simultaneously. Don't be afraid: you are an apocalypse dreaming of butterflies + the first part of reincarnation is dying. You have never read a book like CASANOVA.
152 PGS./Mature ...$14.99

Best Friends Forever Kickstarter

My friend Brea Grant (who I met throught comics, but she's also an actress) is making her directorial debut writing and directing a post-apocalyptic road movie called Best Friends Forever and she has this great Kickstarter campaign to help raise the money they need to finish the film. You can contribute with various amounts, and there are super cool prizes for those who help out.
Watch the video and learn more about the project:

Brea asked me if I could help out, and I did a cool poster image that wil become a limited print awarded to anyone who contribute with more than $100. Check out the sketch I sent Brea and the finished poster below:
Best Friends Forever - 2 step

So, the project has only 10 more days to raise the money, and they can use your help. This is a cool project, Brea is a serious and talented professional and we can help.

Daytripper - Au jour le jour

The French edition of our beloved Daytripper is ready, a beautiful hardcover, and it will be out on April 27th, published by Urban Comics, a division of the Dargaud group. We will be in Napoli for NAPOLI COMICON at the time and I hope I can get my hands in one copy (aside from the Italian and Spanish editions as well. Yes, I think the European market is all connected and works as one big thing. I know it's not that simple).
There's a nice new introduction by Cyril Pedrosa (and it keeps the beautiful illustrated piece by Craig Thompson). You can get all the information about the book here.

Daytripper - french edition

Thanks everyone who made it possible, specially François, who took such good care of our book at Urban Comics.
