This is just a quick post to say that the reMIND pinup contest deadline is here. I am completely blown away with the amount of submissions I received this time and I just want to say THANK YOU for all your hard work and time in creating so much good art. It’s a real joy to see other interpretations of my characters and see how much they are loved. If I uploaded one pinup each day, it would take WAAAAAY too long to show everyone’s work so starting Tuesday I will post 2 or 3 pinups each day until they are all online. Then after they are all live I will open it up for voting!
Thank you again and good luck to all the contributors!
Remember when I announced my location at Comic-Con this year? Well, the next day I got a call from Comic-Con offering me a booth because I was on the waiting list and someone just canceled. I jumped at the opportunity because this means I permanently have a spot as long as I keep paying for it every year. The only downside is now I am in a super crunch to get everything ready for a booth instead of a small table. Oh yeah, and the program guide will still have me listed under my Small Press location. Oh well.
None the less, I need to print a big backdrop banner now and I plan to bring a flatscreen TV so I can loop my reMIND infomercial with animation to attract the grazers. This will be an interesting year to say the least.
So anyway, if you want to find me then you can print out this map with my new location. I’ll be right next to the Webcomics section this year. Suddenly I’m excited to be going to Comic-Con again!
This Saturday was a surreal experience. I saw reMIND animation on Channel 5! Yes, you heard me right. Let me explain.
An old friend of mine, Matt Fisher, works as an editor. (He also has a Youtube channel all about golf here.) Matt emailed me a few weeks back and asked if I had any animation that he could use for a show that he edits. I said yes. I sent him some footage that night. The next day it was cut into the final episode of the first season of “On the Spot“. It was just that fast.
So a few weeks went by and Matt emailed me again to tell me it was going to air on Saturday at 1:30PM on Channel 5. My wife and I recorded it and here it is.
Sorry the volume is really low. Our kids were taking a nap in the next room and so we couldn’t crank it. Also, we filmed it from an iPhone so it’s a little shaky and you can hear us reacting to it at the end. Click the image below to be taken to the video. (I could get the video to properly embed into this post.)
Now I know this doesn’t mean very much in terms of book sales or anything but the thing I love about it is the potential exposure it might give to an unsuspecting future fan. Even if people don’t remember where they saw this cat in a robot suit fighting lizards, the fact that it might look familiar could make someone give the book a chance when they see it on the shelf.
Plus, I was given permission to put my reMIND logo in the bottom right corner. :)
Thanks again Matt!
Art Contest! Vol:2
Starting today is a pin-up contest for reMIND Volume 2! The winner will be printed and credited in the reMIND Volume 2 book and win $150.
The last time I had this contest, I was blown away with the amount of pin-up’s submitted and on top of that I was blown away with the quality of the work. Hopefully by now you’ve seen reMIND Volume 1 (the book) to see just how good the pinup section was with art from high profile artists like Sam Kieth. This Volume will be the same with some amazing new artists already in place.
Anyone can enter a pinup to get a chance at seeing it in the printed book. Plus, every pinup that I get will be added to the pin-up gallery on this site with links back to your site. (Please send a banner along with your art so I can link back to you)
Here are some of the specifics for entering:
- The deadline in JUNE 30th, 2012.
- Page Dimensions are 7″ x 10.5″ at 300 dpi. Here is the direct link: http://www.remindblog.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/08/Page_Template.jpg
- Please only send .jpg files. If you are chosen for the book I’ll request a full size .psd file later.
- Full color or Black and White (but your chances at print will probably be better with color)
- Digital or traditional as long as it’s TOTALLY RAD!
- It can be Victuals, Victuals in Robo-suit, Sonja, Lizard-man, or any of the character from reMIND. It could be ALL the characters too!
- Send a banner to your site along with your art so I can link back to you.
- Please send your pin-up to Jason@reMINDblog.com with PIN-UP SUBMISSION as the header.
- Must be rated PG… so I can look at it without my parents permission.
- Please consider the audience when creating a pinup for this site or the book. It should be for kids and adults to enjoy. I will not post anything that is inappropriate.
After the deadline has passed I will display all the pinups on this site and have an open vote to determine the top candidates. My wife and I will probably decide which one is the winner though. I’m sure I’m missing something so leave a comment with any questions you have. The winner will be required to send a high res .PSD or .TIF file so make sure you keep your master file. $150 will be rewarded to the winner after I collect the final file for print. That’s it!
Like everything else, this is a form of promotion so please send this to anyone who might be interested in submitting.
I can’t wait to see what everyone comes up with this time!!!
A while ago I posted some Visual Development from Kung Fu Panda 2 that I did. Well, here is a little more. This was the first sequence that I painted color keys for. Color Keys are small paintings for specific scenes that show everyone what to make the scene look like when it’s finished. It acts as a sort of blueprint for what the final render should look like when it’s textured, rendered with lighting and all the right colors and mood. I’m pretty proud of this, it’s one of my favorite scenes in the film.
Here is the scene on Youtube but it’s in Cantonese. Sorry, I can’t find it in English.
If you want to see more Vis Dev for Kung Fu Panda 2 then check out my last post on the subject here: Kung Fu Panda 2 – Set Designs
You can also get the art book here: The Art of Kung Fu Panda 2
Here is another one of my latest Kickstarter paintings that I’m still working on a year after my campaign closed. I only have 2 more to do. Hopefully soon.
Wormworld Saga – Chapter 3!
Daniel Lieske just posted the third chapter of his amazing online graphic novel the other day. If you haven’t seen it yet then you really need to check it out. This is as good as free comics get in my opinion.
If any of you are in the market to make a plushie for your webcomic then check out this article written by ComicRocket.com. I was interviewed for the article and I give away all my secrets. ;) If you want to hire the same people that I used then this article gives you all the juicy details.
Bye for now.
I usually don’t do this but I wanted to share with you an amazing looking Kickstarter project by a friend of mine, Jake Parker. I am also proud to say that I was a consultant for this Kickstarter campaign but Jake has taken it above and beyond what I ever expected. His video is a shining example of the kind of quality and heart that can and should be put into something like this. His art speaks for itself and his track record of graphic novels and short stories should be enough to convince you to shell out a few dollars to support good and rare stuff like this.
If you haven’t seen it yet then I want to introduce you to The Antler Boy and Other Short Stories by Jake Parker. It funded in less than a day but you still have about 3 weeks to jump in and help support the project and get a nice looking hardcover book in return!
This last weekend I was in Seattle for the Emerald City Comic-Con and I wanted to share some of the amazing highlights of the trip. This convention was by far, the best and most surreal convention experience I have had. Let me explain.
It all started with a crazy road trip for 20+ hours to pick up my brother in Oregon and make it just in time to set up in a city I’ve never been before with just a few hours to check into my hotel and take a shower before the show started. That in itself was crazy. But we made it and set up the booth. Mike Yamada and his wife Victoria Ying shared a corner booth with us too. If you haven’t seen their work you really should check it out. They are both amazingly talented.
The show opened and the self doubt hit me like a ton of bricks. Especially when the first 30 minutes we had no interested candidates to purchase anything at my booth. I started to really sweat because I dragged my brother all the way here and paid lots of money to be in an unfamiliar audience who didn’t seem to be interested. You could probably see it on my face but then suddenly a fan ran up to the booth in excitement and we talked for about 15 minutes. In that time two other fans approached and complimented me on my book. This really helped calm my nerves but I still wasn’t selling anythi– oh wait, a random attendee just came up out of the blue while I was talking to fans and throw down some cold hard cash. I’m in.
What was once crickets became a continuous stream of interest for my book and prints. About 2 hours in I turned to my brother realizing that this was probably the easiest crowd that I have ever sold to. By the end of the day we had it down and were averaging a book sold every 15 minutes mixed with lots of other little sales and conversation.
The first day was finished and as we walked out into the lobby I was greeted by Royden Lepp the talented writer and artist behind the Archaia book titled Rust. (order from this link and I get a small cut) We ended up going out to dinner with him and his wife and we had a blast. I’m so glad I got a chance to get to know them because they are such great people. Check out his book if you have a chance. It’s one of the few graphic novels that I’ve purchased in the last few years and I love it.
Saturday morning we rolled into the con and I picked up some amazing crepes from a little crepe shop on the street. Talk about the most yummy crepes I’ve ever eaten. That’s a whole post in itself. :)
The convention opened to shouts as attendees ran past to get into autograph lines. We sat back and waited for the first 30 minutes this time instead of worrying about selling books. Soon the customers started wondering by and my brother and I ended up selling 45 copies of reMIND that day alone. It was the most books I ever sold in one day at a con.
In the middle of the day Mleiv stopped by to say hi and gave me some delicious muffins! She does an amazing webcomic called The Locked Maze that you really should see. I think I was in a daze when she came by and I didn’t quite realize it was her until towards the end of our conversation. So, thanks Mleiv for the yummy muffins! Now everyone go and check out her amazing looking comic!
Travis Hanson of The Bean had set up a panel to talk about Kickstarter and he invited me to be part of it. I had no idea what to expect but I wanted to do a panel eventually so I jumped on the opportunity. I was crazy nervous. I was even more nervous when I saw the massive line stretching the length of the convention to get into the panel. The doors opened and we went into a huge room that quickly filled with over 140 people. It reached the room limit and they turned away everyone else. Gulp.
Travis lead the show and we had a fun time discussing what makes a good Kickstarter for about an hour. Thanks Trav, for letting me be a part of your amazing panel! I didn’t get any pictures so if anyone has one that they want to share then I’d love to post it here.
Go check out Trav’s webcomic, The Bean now!
After the panel was finished, I went back to my booth and my brother had sold out of all my signed copies of reMIND that I left for him. He also had two people waiting there for me. And that’s when Ed showed up…
This is Ed.
On Friday, he came by my booth wearing an “I’ve seen the Lizard Man” shirt, which was cool enough to make me snap a picture. But then he showed me his new tattoo.
Yep, that is a brand new tattoo of Victuals on his arm. I might have to mark Ed down as my biggest fan now. We talked for quite a bit and he’s a super nice guy with a big laugh. Thanks Ed, for making this show unforgettable!
The day finished great and we ended up eating dinner with Jeremy Barlow (who edited reMIND) and his friends (who I don’t know their websites or their full names) (and now I feel like a total looser because of) (Help Jeremy!) (awkward pause)
One of the other highlights of the show was meeting Shari Chankhamma who helped me color several pages of Volume 2. I love her art and now I know that she is also a very nice person as well. :) She brought me a bunch of cool gifts and stopped by several times just to hang out. Go check out here work here and follow her on twitter here
@sharihes. Here is one of her drawings.
I meet tons of other cool people and publishers and friends. I talked with printers, publishers and producers interested in reMIND. I was part of another cool panel on Small Press with a bunch of other cool people. Here’s a picture that Drew Pocza took of the panel. He was on the panel too.
The panel was hosted by Corrosive Comics: Shawn Cruz, AnnMore Grove and Micah Baker
Also on the panel were:
The rest of the show went great and I sold 99 copies of reMIND, all the plushes that I brought, all my prints and lots of other random things. We packed up and drove back to my brothers house that night. Then the next day I drove back home to Los Angeles. Exhausted.
I already paid for a booth for next year because this was such a great experience. Thank you to everyone who came out to see me and the fun conversations! See you there next year!
I am packing my bags and leaving tonight for Seattle Washington! What’s in Seattle? Emerald City Comic Con! (ECCC) I’m super excited about this show because it’s all new to me.
Plus I’ll be on two panels during the show which are:
Guide to Creating Your Own Kickstarter Project – Room 201 @ 4:00 – 5:00PM Saturday
Small Press Comics Panel – Room 201 @ 3:00 – 4:00PM on Sunday
Once again, here is my handy map of how to find me. Booth 1008 Coffee Table Comics! Hopefully I’ll see you there!
Remember last month when I said that I only had 280 books left to sell on Amazon? Well, I am down to the last 80 books now. Serious! This is what my trunk looks like every Monday morning on my way to work. The last two weeks have been record orders for me coming in at 43 copies sold one week and 44 sold the next. In a way I am kinda glad that I won’t have to pack and ship books for a little while, at least until I get the second printing in hand. I am going to be talking to a new distributor soon about taking over my order fulfillment for the second printing because I think I have officially burned myself out. I’ll let you know how that goes. If it goes. I’m learning so much stuff these days. The hurtle I need to jump is convincing a distributor to take me on as a publisher even though I only have one book out. They usually don’t entertain the thought until you prove you are in it for the long haul.
All I know is my last month has been full of nothing but business. When I get home from work, I’m either packing books, writing invoices, updating sales records, doing tax stuff, or preparing for conventions. I seriously haven’t been able to touch reMIND the whole time and it’s a little frustrating. But I can’t complain, this is a dream come true to be able to sell this many books. Now I just need to learn how to take it to the next level.
In other news, reMIND was featured on the Paperkeg Podcast last week. They talked about reMIND for nearly 30 minutes and it was really fun to hear their take on it. Plus, I think these guys were about as spot on with the details of the book and story as anyone has been. Plus, they just gave me a lot of compliments too so obviously I’m going to like it. :)
But serious, they have a really good show and I highly recommend listening to it for entertainment and good comic discussion.
You can hear the reMIND episode here: http://paperkeg.com/post/19177589589/paperkeg50
Also, reMIND was review at the Unshelved Book Club. You can read their great review here: http://www.unshelved.
WonderCon was great!
This was a picture my wife snapped on the first day before the doors opened. I ended up with a corner type booth even though I was against the wall. So that night I went to Home Depot and bought a 6 foot table to make myself a corner booth on Saturday and Sunday.
I was able to spread out a bit more and it really helped. This is my booth Saturday morning before the show opened. Like my makeshift tablecloth? I ended up giving away all my “I’ve seen the Lizard Man” t-shirts with a purchase and it went over really well. All I have left is 3x. So if you want a 3x shirt, email me and I’ll send it to you for free if you pay for shipping. :) I only have 5 left.
From this point on, I think I want to get a corner booth from now on. I have lots of ideas for how to make the booth look better too but I wont be able to work on that much until next time. Thank you to everyone who came out to say hi or pick up a copy of reMIND, Phobos and some prints. You made this weekend a blessing for me!
I wish I could write loads more about WonderCon but I gotta finally get some work started. Hopefully I’ll see some of you at Emerald City Comic Con!
Everything is packed and I’m as nervous as a first date. I have all kinds of goodies and special offers for this weekend. Here are a few:
- FREE “I’ve seen the Lizard Man” T-shirt with any purchase over $20 (while supplies last)
- Prints! Yes, I will actually have nice prints this year. I made several spreads into prints as well as the cover image of reMIND. Also, I made a few other prints unrelated to reMIND.
- New Plushies! I have full body Victuals plushies, Big pillow head plushies, and a new keychain plushie this year that I really love!
- Phobos Trade! This is issues 1 to 4 of my first comic that I have never gotten around to collecting. It’s softcover and 94 pages of black and white epic. Only 25 copies made and they will be for $10.
- One of a kind Buttons! I made a bunch of buttons from reMIND and they are almost all unique this time. There are about 90 to choose from. Yes, I made these myself. :)
- And of course, I still have reMIND Volume 1 (first printing). These are going fast though and I am down to my last boxes now. I reserved enough copies for my convention appearances this year but that’s it.
Here are some pictures of the plushie key chain and the Phobos trade cover.
(Disclaimer: This cover is new art but the interior art is as old as the hills. Most of it was drawn in 1993-1995 while I was in high school.)
And for the last time, here is my location so you can easily find me! Hopefully I’ll see you there!
If anyone is going to the Anaheim WonderCon next weekend then please stop by and say hi! It’s approaching fast and I’m starting to sweat because I am trying to make lots of new things for the show like unique buttons, plushies, cards and this time I will be offering a bunch of prints of my work. I’m trying to make a big banner of Victuals in his super suit in the rain to hang across the back of my booth but I keep running into problems and it is consuming too much of my free time. None the less, I think I found a good printer finally so look for this banner at the top of my booth.
I think I have a sweet location too. I’m right at the front of the convention pretty close to Marvel comics. Perhaps being next to the side wall is a bad thing. I don’t know. But I am right across from ComiXology and really close to the front right entrance. In fact, here’s a map. Click it to see full size:
I’m not saying this to sell books but… well, actually yeah, I AM trying to sell books but this might be something important if you really want to get a first printing of reMIND before they are gone. To give you an idea, I have reserved a few hundred copies of reMIND for my convention rounds this year. Based on last years cons I can guestimate that I sell about 25 books a day at conventions. SOOOOoooo, I counted up all the days I will be attending conventions this year (that I have already booked) and I have set aside enough books to barely cover all the conventions.
SoooOOOOoOOoOOOoooo, after setting aside books for cons, I noticed that I was getting down to the last few boxes. 14 boxes to be exact. Each box holds 20 books which brings to total left to 280 books before the first printing is sold out.
I know what your thinking! “So what? It will take you FOREVER to sell 280 books.”
Here are the facts. I have been selling 20 to 36 books EACH WEEK through Amazon, comic shops and Libraries. I don’t know how it’s been happening but those have been the consistent numbers for the last 4 months. So to use the average rate of 28 books a week, that leaves 10 weeks left before I tell Amazon that I am OUT OF STOCK!
If you plan on finding me at a convention this year then you probably don’t have to worry about it because I will still have my little stash for cons but you won’t be able to find it online anymore unless you buy it second hand. Keep in mind, that this is the first printing of the first book that I have ever done and they are all numbered. Only 2500 were printed. ALSO, when I finally do a second printing, they will NOT be numbered and they probably WON’T have the cloth binding.
SOooOoOOOOoooOOoOoOooooo, if you want one of these first printings with a cloth binding and numbered then I highly recommend ordering a copy now.
And to drive the stupid point all the way home, last week Amazon ran out of copies for a few days while they were waiting for my next shipment and this is what happened. I was so blown away that I took this screen grab:
Don’t ask me who would spend hundreds of dollars on a copy of reMIND but that was what happened as soon as they ran out of copies for a week. I can only imagine what will happen when they are notified that the first printing is out of print. Who knows.
Wow! I sure did toot my own horn there didn’t I? Honestly, I am just excited about the idea of not packing up boxes of books anymore. haha! Buy Buy Buy!
So, if you are planning on finding me at a convention to pick up a copy then here are the first two Cons that I’ve booked for 2012. If you are going to be at any of these then please come by and say hi! And just so you know, I will be listed under my publishing name Coffee Table Comics.
This will be my first year ever at the WonderCon. I’ve never ever been there even as an innocent bystander. But, I took the plunge this time and bought a full booth! Now I just need to figure out how to decorate an entire booth space. This year, it will be held in Anaheim, CA on March 16th – 18th. From what I hear, it’s going to be completely bananas this year with the move to Anaheim. Apparently they sold out of booth space at record speed. I plan on having some new shirts, plushies and I’m even going to try to make some prints this year for conventions. Oh yeah, I’ll have a 94 page trade of an old comic I did back in the day!
Just like WonderCon, I have never ever been to this convention but hear only good things about it. So, again I bought a full booth. A corner booth actually but I’ll be sharing it with some friends. I’m already listed on their Exhibitors page under Coffee Table Comics and my booth number is 1008. I’ll be sure to give you a map to my location before the convention starts so don’t bother memorizing all this… because I know people like memorizing random information just for the joy of it.
The only other cons I’ll be at this year are:
- Los Angeles Amine-Expo in June.
- San Diego Comic-Con in July.
- And the Los Angeles ComiKaze Expo in September.
That’s it! Sorry. :(
SOOOooOooOOOoOOoOOOOoooooooOOOOOOO! Once again, here’s a link to buy reMIND on Amazon! Oh, the joy of almost being sold out!!! :)
[UPDATE: The defects are now sold out!]
THESE ARE FACTORY DEFECTS OR SLIGHTLY DAMAGED COPIES ONLY. I have several copies of reMIND that have factory defects on the cover or smudges on some pages. Some have a small cut or rip and some have a crooked cloth binding and some are just smashed slightly but they are perfect if you are just looking for a copy to read. These are EXACTLY the same as the full priced book but I just didn’t feel comfortable sending these out at full price.
Because of the blemishes I am selling them at the discount of $10 + $3.50 for shipping and handling.
Here is the link where you can buy one:
Here are the last missing pages from reMIND volume 1. Click to enlarge and see it within the story. Next Monday I’ll try to update all the pages in Chapter 3 as well as post a new little intro for Volume 2. Then after that it’s all new pages!
Oh yeah, I’m going to be hitting some conventions pretty soon. I’ll give you a rundown later this week when I put all the info together.
Have a great Valentine’s Day tomorrow! See you soon!
Yes, you heard me right! Today I put up a NEW page. Well, it’s new on this site. When I printed the book I added 4 pages to Chapter 2 where Sonja and Victuals were working on the suit to get it fitting Victuals’ body. Now that Chapter 4 is about ready to begin, I figured I should update all the pages from Volume 1 to reflect the book. So in addition to updating all the pages in Chapters 1 and 2 I have added the first two missing pages online. Click the image to see in within the story.
So, Next Monday, I’ll post the next spread so make sure to come back. In fact, I’ll be posting new pages each Monday from now on leading up to the start of Chapter 4 on the 27th. Yay, my page posting has officially begun!
Free Advertising this month! Right there ——->
Along with posting new pages each Monday, I am now offering advertising again on this site. To jump start things a little, I want to give you a chance to advertise here for free for the month of February leading up to the start of Chapter 4. To get your banner rotating for free this month, all you gotta do is buy some ad impressions for NEXT month (March). The sooner you lock in your banner ad impressions the sooner your banner will be rotating through the cycle with all the others leading up to the start of Chapter 4. Does that make sense or am I just completely confusing here?
In other words, reserve your ad impressions for NEXT month now and get free impressions for THIS month. Yes, I will cycle your banner with everyone else’s banner (who has reserved impressions) all February until I start posting Chapter 4. If you are interested in reserving impressions for when I start posting new pages then head on over to my advertising page and buy some impressions now. I will start cycling paid banners on a first come first served basis when Chapter 4 begins.
New Shirt designs
I tried to make this shirt over a year ago and failed. Now I am forcing myself to finish it and eventually print it for conventions and stuff. I’m still not sure of the colors yet so let me know what you like. Even if you want to grab this image, change the color to what you think it should be and send it back to me then I’ll consider it. I might have a vote for it at some point later too.
Here’s a version on a black shirt:
Here is a version on a blue shirt:
And here are some other color ideas:
I really have the worst time deciding on something like this. When it comes to simple color design I lock up like a Commodore 64. Speaking of which, I loved that computer!
So the biggest news this week is that reMIND got on the Great Graphic Novels for Teens list for 2012! (GGNT) This is a pretty big deal I hear and I am honored to have my first book listed with so many other talented storytellers. Perhaps this is why I had to send out so many copies of reMIND yesterday.
Usually I get orders for about 20 books a week from Libraries, Comic shops and Amazon combined but last week was a record with 36 copies sold! Before I forget, here are a few more comic shops that started carrying reMIND this last week! Once again, Please go bother them for a copy of reMIND so they reorder more :)
Traders of Babylon
66 A Willow Ave
Hoboken, NJ 07030
3244 N Clark St
Chicago IL 60657
874 W Lancaster Ave.
Bryn Mawr PA 19010
Now, onto even crazier things! I have finally decided when I’m going to start posting new pages of reMIND! I still don’t think I’ll be finished with everything I wanted to have complete but I’m going to pull the trigger anyway! The madness will officially begin on…
Monday FEBRUARY 27th 2012!
This probably means that I will be staying up late at night for the entire month of February to get as much finished as I can before this start date arrives. And just like before, there will be spelling problems and typos and little things to fix as I go but I trust that, once again, you will all help me refine Volume 2 as we go to be the best book it can be.
But honestly, I’m pretty nervous about what everyone is expecting with Volume 2 because it seems like I have only had positive feedback from this first Volume. I keep worrying that I can’t live up to the hype but I’m sticking true to the original story however simple or complex it may seem. I can tell you that it will probably go in directions that are unexpected. That’s what I like about it.
But, I’ll just shut my mouth and see how things play out as I post pages. :)
Even though I’ve been a bit quiet online these days, it’s not to say nothing is happening. On the contrary I worked on a secret project until 1 AM each night for the last 8 days. I don’t want to let the cat out of the bag yet but I will say that… It’s probably the script for my next graphic novel after I finish reMIND Vol. 2! hehe. But don’t worry, I’m still planning on posting new pages soon but a small distraction was well needed for me to recharge my reMIND batteries. In some ways, I need to just pull the trigger and start posting pages again to put the fire back under my seat. I am still planning on starting to post in February sometime. Probably the end of February.
And just so you know here are a few more comic shops that started carrying reMIND. If you live close to one of these then please go bother them for a copy so they will order more! :)

For a list of other cool shops carrying reMIND click here!
Also, I have to give a shout out to Patrick Bower of:
1845 N Western Ave 2R
Chicago, IL 60647
who was actually the first comic shop to carry my book. Patrick has been super helpful in every aspect of selling reMIND and at the end of last year he send me an email saying:
“reMIND ranked #98 on our 2011 Sold Graphic Novels List.To give you a little perspective on this list, it’s for ALL Graphic Novels sold in 2011, not just books released this year. And there are a total of 3453 places on this list. reMIND was #98.”
All I gotta say is that it takes a good comic shop to move that many copies of reMIND and from what I hear, Patrick has one of the best comic shops around. I can’t wait to take a road trip to Chicago someday and check it out for myself. Thanks again Patrick!
