TCAF and Popcorn!  
This weekend is TCAF! The Toronto Comic Arts Festival is one of the largest and best independent comics conventions anywhere and attendance is completely FREE so, if you live in the area, you have no reason not to attend. Come on down to the main Toronto Reference Library (great subway access) and enjoy a huge range of artists and storytellers showcasing their work. Check out the guest list. You will be amazed.

I'll be set up on the second floor in the webcomics area, with books for sale and available for sketching (and signing Street Fighter comics) as well.

• I didn't want to say anything until I was sure it was going to be complete in time for the show, but I'm very happy to announce that I'll have a new mini-comic premiering at TCAF called 'A Slightly Fictional History of Popcorn'! I assembled them last night and am really happy with how they turned out.

Here's a better look at the cover and a sample page from the short story inside:

Honestly, in the weeks leading up to the show I knew I wanted to have a new mini-comic ready for it but, with so much going on, it just seemed impossible. I pushed away as many distractions as I could and really rocked it out over the past few days. I'm glad I did. Having some new work to show feels great.

• In addition to the Popcorn book, I'll have copies of my Photoshop colouring tutorial booklet and a small sketchbook of character and monster line art from the Legends of Zork game I helped visually design, as well as copies of the graphic novel of my old webcomic Makeshift Miracle.

Here's the mini-booklet spread:

So, in short, come to TCAF! It would be great to see you there.
