"Arriving in stores in the fall of this year, All and Sundry is a collection of various illustrations, posters, comics, and drawings that have been scattered in publications and galleries all over the world, but never collected in a single volume. This will include the strip currently running in the German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung, as well as the sixteen page comic recently drawn for the album Yonlu. The book will be rounded out by over one hundred scans from sketchbooks, documenting weirdness that has never seen the light of day, and projects still in a primitive state."
Now available for preview and pre-order: the new, first-ever hardcover edition of Paul Hornschemeier's acclaimed graphic novel debut Mother, Come Home. Praised by everyone from Will Eisner to Entertainment Weekly when it was first released, this book has been out of print for quite some time. Mother, Come Home is scheduled to be in stock in late February and in stores approximately 4 weeks later.

Paul Hornschemeier attended the Obama inauguration and wrote a very touching blog post about the experience that I very much enjoyed. Now, if I can just get Gary Groth to write something about his inauguration experience in DC last week...
Paul Hornschemeier announcement: Paul will be designing and illustrating every release from Paper Egg Books, a new subscription-only book series from featherproof Books. No images yet, but the books are sure to be as "hotly handsome" as the Paper Egg site says Paul is. More info in the official announcement.
Starting [January 5], and for the next seventeen weeks, I'll be contributing a weekly strip in the German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung.The strip is in their "Tragic Strip" slot of their political section, and has been previously occupied by a slew of artists, including one of my major idols and influences, Heinz Edelmann. My contribution will feature Huge Suit (who made an appearance in Fantagraphics' 2006 Free Comic Book Day issue and is inarguably one of my more Heinz Edelmann-influenced characters). The strips aren't apparently going to be available online, but a clip is above.
