A look in the rearview mirror at this past weekend’s Kent University Bookstore Book Festival.

The Events page has the other book signings I have coming up this Fall with things wrapping up at the Hinckley Historical Society in November. If you can’t make it to any of the other signings, you can always order any books you’re looking for in the Books section on this site.








Son of on the Road Again

One of my Fall traditions of late has been The Kent State University Bookstore Book Festival which takes place this year on Saturday, October 5th. It’s always fun with some Funky regulars returning every year. It’s a great time to squirrel away your winter reading before the snow flies. I know I’ll be stocking up on mine. You can find more details and a map at the Events section on this site. Hope to see you there.

Rubber City

Some moments from my appearance at Rubber City Comics.

First and most important of all there were snacks. They know their cartoonists.

A cool and well stocked store in which to hang-out.

And the fans. One was a veteran of the Iraq war whose Crankshaft book was blown-up when a lobber hit his Humvee (I hope I’m not the only one who notices the irony there) so we fixed him up with a brand new one. Another fan brought his worn but still together copy of the very first Funky Winkerbean book to be signed, and I got to draw the old young Funky again. Oh, and did I mention the pizza? They really do know their cartoonists. All in all, Rubber City Comics is a great place to spend a Saturday afternoon, and, if you’re in the Akron area, you definitely owe it to yourself check it out.
