I’ve been quiet about my new book, Beta Testing the Apocalypse (Fantagraphics), mainly because, until very recently, I was still working on finishing all the art & design for it. Fantagraphics has already announced on their site, where it is also available for pre-order (hint, hint). I’m very excited to officially announce it here. What’s
Here’s another item I neglected to note: the passing of the MOME anthology. My first comic for MOME appeared in issue #7. That time seems impossibly distant. I was still living in New York at that time and hadn’t published much of anything… besides a bunch of mini-comics and short pieces here and there.
I wrote about this 15 page collaboration with Dash Shaw some time ago. The story is called ‘Resolution’ and it is published in the current issue of MOME. That very issue (vol. 17) has just made it onto the shelves of comic-book stores. More information, video & PDF previews and the option to buy
I probably don’t do this sort of thing enough… but here are a few recent reviews of my work I was alerted to, or have stumbled upon: “Still, though not quite successful on a philosophical level, it’s a lovely-looking strip, with judiciously chosen images representing the various ideas and idea-spouters and Kaczynski’s precise use
The latest volume of MOME should have hit the stores on Wednesday. Volume 12 is pretty great. It’s got stories by David B., Olivier Schrauwen, Dash Shaw, Killoffer & many others. I only have a measly 4 pages in this issue. Each page is a stand alone meditation on noise, sound, silence and other

panels from Mome 11 The term ‘Momed’ was coined by Gabrielle Bell (if I remember correctly) and it refers to MOME contributing cartoonists who, in an effort to meet their deadlines, forgo normal social behavior and lock themselves up for extended periods of time in a desperate attempt to make comics at a highly
Here’s yet another item I should have posted sometime ago, but I have a new story in the current issue of Mome. It should be in stores already and can also be ordered directly from Fantagraphics. A couple of reviews of the volume have already been posted by Jog and The Comics Reporter.
As I write this the new issue of Mome should either already be in stores, or will arrive shortly. It's already available via Fantagraphics here. My story in this issue is nine pages long and is titled 10,000 Years.
My blogging frequency was never great, but it has slowed to a glacial crawl in recent months. One of the reasons for the slow-down is MOME, the quarterly comics anthology published by Fantagraphics. I’ve been asked to become a regular contributor so now I spend most of my free time working (or thinking about
