Help jumpstart Paul Hornschemeier's book tour

Paul Hornschemeier hasn't even started his Life with Mr. Dangerous book tour and already he's hit a significant bump in the road, losing some key support at his other publisher. So now he's doing it DIY-style, raising funds via a sale in his online shop and just plain begging. He explains it all here. One of his tour stops is at Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery on June 18, so we definitely appreciate anything you can do!

Paul Hornschemeier video profile & more

Paul Hornschemeier shares his workspace, artwork, thoughts on publication, and winning smile (seriously, dude's a smilin' fool) in this video profile for thisartist.tv.

For more video action from Paul, check out this video trailer for Life with Mr. Dangerous which he commissioned from director Bruce Parsons. It's beautifully produced and depicts a bit of "offscreen" backstory in live action. Nice. And Paul shows off someone else showing off his forthcoming postcard set from Chronicle, So-So Heroes, here. Busy guy, that Paul.
