It is almost time

Anya's Ghost comes out tomorrow! Holy crap! Maybe I am writing this blog prematurely but who cares. I am pretty excited. I started working on it in the evenings back in 2007 while I was on Coraline and kept working on it through a good chunk of my time on Paranorman. Then I waited a year for the publishing machine to do its thing. And after tomorrow it's going to be out there for people to read in probably about 30 minutes. I hope they're an enjoyable 30 minutes, if you decide to pick it up (and I hope you do!). I tried to make the best story I could with the resources I had available.

Thing coming up: I am going to be at Floating World Comics this Wednesday evening to sign copies of the book and hang out and feed you my home-made caramels. If you're local to Portland please stop by, it'll be great to see you!

Other things: I am working on a behind-the-scenes blog post about my weird comic-making process! I am going to have a new website soon! I am going to be at San Diego Comic-Con! I'm going to eat lunch! Oh boy.

I think your artwork is fantastic and I'll definitely be buying a copy, and telling all my friends to buy one too! If you ever come through Boston to do signings, let us know!

I pre-ordered Anya's Ghost months ago for a friend based firstly on the recommendations from Neil Gaiman and Scott McCloud (which got me to look at it), secondly on the great-looking art, and thirdly on the fact that it's about a Russian girl who grew up in America — just like my friend. She moved to the U.S. from Minsk with her family when she was 11. Am I right in assuming you have a similar background?

I got an email today saying the book has shipped! Congratulations on the release. I'm looking forward to either picking up my own copy or borrowing hers sometime.

Yay! I work in receiving at a Barnes & Noble and got 2 in on Friday. It made my day when I opened that box. Now there is only one in the store :)I did read it in about 30 minutes, but it was a great 30 minutes! Thanks for writing and drawing, you make amazing things for us to enjoy.
