Free Comic Book Day

Hi Everyone,

Off the top, a big Colbert shout out to Jimmy and Amanda for putting up with us all winter. We had tons of fun invading their lives and hopefully did little damage. Everyone pick up Power Girl, Jonah Hex and Jimmy & Justin's Random Acts of Violence.

Darwyn will be at Free Comic Book Day at Strange Adventures this Saturday in Halifax. Cal throws a huge open house in a church hall just around the corner from the shop and has THOUSANDS of comics to give away. I'm not sure what time we'll get there, most likely in the afternoon. Drop by and say Hi!

The next conventions we plan on attending are FanExpo in Toronto, August 27-29, DragonCon Atlanta, Sept 3-6 and New York Comic Con October 8-10.

Thanks to everyone who came to see us in San Francisco, the party at the Isotope was a great success. Darwyn is hard at work on The Outfit, but you can pick up The Man with the Getaway Face for just $2.00 soon in local comics shops. The Hunter is now available in the iTunes store, we'd love to hear what you think of it in that format.

See you Saturday,

digital Parker, party pix and Eisners

Parker the Hunter is available on-line for the iPad here and at iVerse comics in this link.

Darwyn and Parker the Hunter were also nominated in several categories of the 2010 Eisner Awards. Best writer/artist, adaptation of another work, and best graphic album (new). The full list of nominees and categories can be seen on the Eisner Award website.

James Sime and the folks at the wonderful Isotope Comics on the west coast held a party during Wondercon called the 100 proof Hex Party. Darwyn, Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Conner were in attendance as well as many, many others! Looks like a great time - check out the photos here.

Also from Wondercon, here's a rundown of Darwyn's panel at the show.

This is from the back cover of "The Man with the Getaway Face", available at select comic-cons this summer and at your local comic book store in July (and for only two bucks!). (image from the folks at The Violent World of Parker)

Nice Storm drawing for someone named Storm here, gorgeous Catwoman here.
