I'm back from holiday fun and back to working on Only Skin 5. Still aiming to have the 5th issue done for MoCCA 2010 in April.
And thanks to Rob Clough for this nice review of Only Skin 4 over at the Comics Journal. Speaking of the Comics Journal, this interview between the great Jaime Hernandez and Zak Sally was a really inspirational read. Highly recommended.
I hope to have some posts of new Only Skin material over the next few days and weeks.
Also, I am officially sold out of copies of Only Skin 4, but Atomic Books and Secret Acres should have copies for sale. I will try to have copies in stock by the time MoCCA 2010 rolls around in April.

Rob Clough over at the new Comics Journal blog has reviewed Sundays 3. Read it here. It's a really nice review. We finally have copies of the book for sale online over at Chuck's store The Oily Boutique. Check it out! Also, check out Chuck's awesome new comic WOLF, which is the fifth issue of his splendid Snake Oil comic series.
This weekend, Chuck, Alex, Melissa, Joe and I all went to the Brooklyn Comics & Graphics Festival and had a blast. We sold, traded, bought and had a general good time. You can see our table in this cool panorama shot of the event (swiped from the Beat and taken by Joel Speasmaker). Thanks to event organizers Gabe Fowler of Desert Island and Dan Nadel of Picture Box for putting together a great show. Hopefully it becomes a yearly tradition - it was the best New York show I've been to in a long time. My favorite book of the show so far is probably D+Q's beautiful Red Snow or Domitille Collardey's comic. But I've got loads to read yet.
Work is continuing on Only Skin 5. There's also a nice note on Le Zata about Only Skin 4, though that's only what dictionary.com's translator tells me.
Also, here are a few sketches from my sketchbook.

Here's a page in progress from Only Skin 5. Only Skin 4 is now available at Secret Acres and Atomic Books and a few other places like Desert Island, Cosmic Monkey, Midtown Comics and Hanley's. I still have copies if you want to use the paypal link in the post below.
Also, this weekend, I'll be at the Brooklyn Comics and Graphics Festival with my Sundays pals Joe, Chuck, Alex and Melissa.
