Fencing/noir story update

Been really busy working on my fencing/noir story and haven’t had time to post anything lately, but I thought I’d share a couple pages from the project real quick-like before April is over.

An April Fools Day That Doesn’t Suck

When most people think of April fool’s Day, they think of lame jokes, tasteless pranks and other foolishness.

Normally I do, too, but THIS April fool’s Day is turning out to be one of the best days I’ve had in a long time. Well, since last Saturday, at least. (My oldest son came down with a pretty mean case of stomach flu at about 2 AM Saturday night and… well, I’ll spare you the gory details, but let me just say that it’s a mighty good thing our washing machine works)

For starters, the mailman rang the bell and delivered this amazing Golden Age Sandman drawing I was lucky enough to buy from the very talented Chris Samnee, along with a bonus sketch of my own character, The Ogre, from my Paranormal trilogy. Thanks a million, Chris!

And then, while I was admiring the drawings, the doorbell rings again. This time it’s the UPS guy, bringing me my artists’ copies of… and no, this isn't a joke...Paranormal vol.3!! It’s finally here! And it looks great, too! Valérie Bigel at Carabas and the printers did a knockout job putting it together, so for anyone out there interested in the book, go run over to your local* comic shop, or and get yourself a copy.

Anyway… my day is off to a great start. No kidding.

Hope yours is, too!

*local if you live in France, that is...
