The first review for Quarter-Life Crisis is in, and it's a good one! My favourite Toronto newsblog, Torontoist, did a story on the book. Writer Stephen Michalowicz gave it a nice review (in a fantastically titled article, 'Worst Quarter-Life Crisis Ever'), and included some big images from the book. He also brought up some good points about a few weaknesses that I agree with.

And I love that someone noticed the THX 1138 reference.

Word On The Street-wise

This Sunday (September 27), I'll be reading at The Word On The Street in Toronto with two extremely talented people -- Jeff Lemire (Essex County Trilogy, Sweet Tooth) and Willow Dawson (100 Mile House, No Girls Allowed).

The Word On The Street happens from 11 to 6 at Queen's Park. Come out and see me embarrass myself beside two actually amazing artists. (But seriously, it should be fun.) We'll be at the Comics and Graphic Novels Tent from 4 to 5 p.m. And there will be PowerPoint!

The Making Of Documentary

Quarter-Life Crisis was recently printed by the fine people at Coach House Printing, and they did a fantastic job. For the uninitiated, Coach House is a publisher and printer based in Toronto with a storied history and a bang-up staff. I took some photos during the binding process of the book.

The books are done and in (some) stores now! (I'll be putting them in more retail outlets in the coming weeks. And I'll be at The Word On The Street at Queen's Park in Toronto this Sunday, September 27, reading at the Comics and Graphic Novels Tent at 4 p.m.
