The last few days have been a whirlwind, but I will do my best to be succinct in sharing my news.
AMERICAN HERO BOOK – Thank you, everyone, who placed an order for the AMERICAN HERO art book of my GI Joe art – it is at the printer right now, so I anticipate I will have the books in hand and be sending them out next week.

GenCon: I am pleased to share that our prototype RAIL: IRON WARS strategy board game/trading card game designed by Mike Bawden and Tim Bawden of Silent Gunfight did 5 rounds of game testing at GenCon, and we received great comments and positive reviews from the players, including our good friend and game theory professor Durwin Talon and his wife Guin Thompson, so we will be moving forward with the game! Here’s a shot of the first group of game testers (these gents were from the U.K.):
Downtown Comics, Market Street in Indianapolis: A special thanks to all who came out to see me Saturday as I was signing with The Henchmen creator/writer Jameson, plus signing my other works. It was also fun to meet a pop culture kindred spirit, Drew Curtis, founder of the great website Fark.com! He has a new beer with Wil Wheaton called Stone Farking Wheaton W00t Stout, and it’s nearly sold out already so hurry and get your six-pack! Congrats to Wil and Drew!

I also want to thank Tina and Jason Rak of St. Louis for coming by Downtown Comics and sharing with me how beautifully they framed the Star Wars original painting they bought from me at the Spectrum Show in Kansas City, KS.

I also want to thank Larry Zore of ComicsPriceGuide.com for being so supportive of The Wasted Lands and our Iron Wars game.
So…that’s about all of the excitement I can take for 3 days. Now I recuperate by drawing and painting and hanging with the family. I do want to share that I just learned will be at New York City Comic-Con October 18-21 with Kevin Eastman, Joshua Ortega and Digger T. Mesch, launching “The Other Dead” IDW comic, so please be sure to visit us in Artists Alley there. As soon as I have Table #s, I will post them here.
