I run the show.
I have a new comic up on The Nib, alongside several other awesome trans cartoonists! This link right here is what you wanna click to read the whole comic and see the rest of the set.
And yes, this very Sunday, June the 24th, I will be tabling at Denver Zine Fest. The event runs from 10-6, and is at the McNichols building in Civic Center Park.
Admission is FREEEEEEEEE.
Come to the thing, and get yourself some zines!
I will be at Denver Comic Con this weekend, but just for Friday. My schedule is thusly:
FRIDAY, JUNE 15
11:00 – 11:50 AM
PANEL: Denver Public Library Presents – Creating Comics & Community in Colorado, Room 302
1:00 – 4:00 PM
BOOTH SIGNING: Charlie LaGreca/DiNK Booth #1300
4:00 – 4:50 PM
PANEL: How To Support Small Artists, Room 607
So! if you’re going to be at Denver Comic Con on Friday, you should come find me at one of these things.
Also, if you are a giant nerd, I’m doing world-building appendix posts over on the Valley of the Silk Sky tumblr in between chapters.
$1+ Patreons get to peep concept art and other behind-the-scenes stuff on upcoming projects during the break, so drop a dollar if you wanna see.
Valley of the Silk Sky page 92 is up! Oh, and don’t mind that thing in the corner. I’m sure it’s nothing:
And that’s a wrap on Chapter 9! Go here if you want to read the whole chapter in a single sitting.
Chapter 10 will start running in a couple-few weeks. In the meantime, I’ll be doing the usual world-building posts between chapters on the Valley of the Silk Sky website.
If you don’t want to wait, you can, of course, always pick up the collection of Part Two, which includes chapters 6-10 in their entirety. Available in print and digital editions, or on ComiXology.
During the break, Patrons who pledge $1 or more will get to peep some concept art for a Valley of the Silk Sky short story I’m working on for an upcoming anthology. Neat!
See you soon,
Page 91 of Valley of the Silk Sky has discovered something rather interesting indeed. Find out what:
BUT ALSO: I’m going to be at WisCon this weekend!

Valley of the Silk Sky turns 90 pages old, and is covered in weird growths. Goggle at them here:
Meanwhile, the digital edition of Valley of the Silk Sky: The Long Run Part Two is now available on ComiXology! If that’s your preferred platform, you need wait no longer.
I’m still recovering from TCAF (jetlag plus travel shenanigans), so that’s about it for this week. Next week, more VotSS, and WisCon news!
Care for some overgrown ruins? Worry not, Valley of the Silk Sky page 89 has you covered (in weird plants):
That Patreon post has a little more info about said weird plants, so click through if you desire more knowledge (Patreon posts of VotSS pages are locked Monday-Wednesday, and become available to the general public on Thursday).
But also, TCAF is nigh!
If you’re going to be at the Toronto Comic Arts Festival this weekend (May 12-13, 2018), you should come find me at table 218 for the convention debut of the Valley of the Silk Sky: The Long Run Part Two print book!
I’ll also be on the Adventure Teens panel on Sunday at 2:00 PM, wherein we’ll talk about why we let our characters run around without adult supervision.
I’m excited for to return to Toronto, even if it means I have to get up ridiculously early for my flight tomorrow. See you there!
