Just a week ago, we broke the halfway mark on this campaign, and I’m excited to see that we’re now over 2/3 of the way to our goal! To celebrate, I’m posting the image that will become the cover of this sketchbook. It includes a lot of the characters that I’ve come to love drawing over the past several years, and I’m excited to share it with all of you. Thank you again for your support!
Meanwhile, I’m having a great time meeting some of you as I’m wrapping up HeroesCon in Charlotte, North Carolina. One of the great parts about being a comics artist is that I get to travel all over our beautiful country and meet so many nice people who love comics as much as I do.
Thank you all again for your support of this sketchbook, and of comics in general. Please help us get across the finish line and make this book happen by tweeting, sharing on Facebook, etc. Spread the word and the joy.
Live at WhedonCon 2019 and just hit the halfway goal on my #Kickstarter. Thanks for everyone for your support! Back me know and take advantage of the fantastic rewards, including original comic book art.

The way the process usually works is that I give Dark Horse a bunch of ideas when (or if) I have a synopsis of the story. Sometimes it’s too close to the main cover or they want something different represented, but I usually give them a bunch of ideas. More next month.
Buffy Season 12 is coming your way on June 20, 2018! Here’s one of my variant covers for issue #1. Joss Whedon and Christos Gage are the writers and I will be providing variant covers and art for all four issues. The official title is “Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 12: The Reckoning” and will be the culmination of all the Buffy seasons!
Here’s the synopsis from Dark Horse:
Following the world-altering finale of Season 11, Buffy and the Scoobies have had a laid-back year in the saving-the-world department. But as they’ve learned over their years of fighting the forces of darkness and thwarting many an apocalypse, nothing stays quiet for long. When Dawn and Xander’s housewarming party is crashed by some familiar faces with news of an amassing force that must be reckoned with—Wolfram & Hart, a legion of demons, and Harth, a vampire from the future—Buffy finds herself in a time warp that could alter the fate of the world and could spell the end for Buffy, her friends, and the Slayers, forever.
This action-packed miniseries reunites the Buffyverse with the return of Angel, Faith, Illyria, and Fray, the Slayer from the future!

Also, Denver Comic Con 2017 is doing a reunion of Buffy “Baddies” with James Marsters, Juliet Landau, Clare Kramer and Mercedes McNab. Whedonverse alumni Nathan Fillion and Felicia Day will also be appearing. I did an exclusive for them that’s available on their merch website now.

I’ve enjoyed working with Denver Comic Con over the years providing designs for their Captain Colorado character as well as their exclusives. All monies from their event go to their parent organization, Pop Culture Classroom. A non-profit that provides literacy programs using comic books, graphic novels, and board games as a way to engage kids and young adults.
