In the Rearview Mirror

I Just wanted to give a shout out to everyone at the Ohio Music Educators Association for once again kicking off the book signing  season in fine fashion. We were there with the new Complete Funky Volume 6 and it was fun as always to visit with old friends and catch up with the music world.

A quick note to those of you ordering the new volume on Amazon, they quickly ran out of copies of Volume 6, but have posted that on February 15 they’ll have a new supply and will be able to fulfill new orders. Thanks for your patience and your support.

Volume Six is in the house.

The latest volume in the series that was an Eisner Award finalist in 2016 for Best Archival Collection is now available on this website in the “Books” section. Big change is the operative word here with new characters, crossovers with John Darling and the story behind the rise of Crankshaft. All of that and a fun foreword by Roger (Spider-Man/Superman) writer Roger Stern. Plus the art is way better than it was in Volume One. Check it out.

A Box of Books

Volume 5 box

A box containing the latest volume of the ongoing Funky codex arrived the other day. After all of the hard work on everyone’s part in putting these together, first in the studio here, and later at the Kent State University Press, it’s always nice to sit down with a new edition, cuddle it like a newborn  and check out what’s inside. This particular volume marks the point where the strip begins to grow up and start moving toward more adult and substantive work. As I say in the intro to a brace of very special books that The Press will be bringing out next year, if Lisa’s Story is where the storm front broke, then this collection is where the first drops begin to appear on the windshield. If you want to check it out for yourself, just go to the books section on this site. Happy summer reading.
