Thrilling Adventure Hour - The Graphic Novel


Hello there! Seeing as it's been almost six months since my last web log post I thought you might like to know what I've been up to. Would you? I'm going to assume the answer is yes— or at least "sorta."

In addition to working at Laika Inc. on their upcoming movie, The Boxtrolls, I'm tickled pink to report I have a contribution to the upcoming Thrilling Adventure Hour Graphic Novel. If you're not familiar with the Thrilling Adventure Hour, it's a live show and podcast created by the brilliant writing duo, Ben Acker and Ben Blacker. The show has been running since 2005 and features a variety of original segments performed in the style of old time radio plays. Now the Bens have taken the next step and created a series of short stories featuring their beloved characters in a new graphic novel from Archaia Entertainment.

The book makes it's debut this week at Comic Con so please stop by and check it out if you're out there. Here are some raves, previews and ordering information for the book: Click it!

I illustrated the Jefferson Reid: Ace American segment and I'm really pleased with how it came out. I'll share some more art from the book sometime in the future but for now here's an older unpublished piece I did inspired by the Jefferson Reid characters. Don't miss it y'all! Thanks always for checking in!
