Are you going to be in Portland, Oregon in a few weeks? If so, you should come by my table at Rose City Comic Con and pick up the new issue of Father Robot the weekend of September 20th and 21st. I’ve got some new artwork for sale (original and prints), t-shirts, buttons, and, of course, lots of cool comics!

It’s been hard waiting for this day, but it’s nice to finally see my comic available for purchase. Thanks to Kristopher White, the folks at Comixology, 215 Ink, and especially our supportive fans for making this possible.

There’s a definite art to the proper composition on a comic book panel. I’ve experimented a lot with this one. It’s supposed to show an evil robot getting what’s coming to him. Here’s one of my earlier “framing” attempts of the panel. In the end, I set up the whole thing significantly differently. If you want to know how, you’ll have to check out issue #3…
