I'm now a published comic book artist.

Yup, you're pretty much fucked.

If I'm honest I have to say that I initially had my doubts about how Fanboy Comics was going to handle this comic. I felt like this art was my baby and to hand it off to a thieving band of gypsy bastards did not make me the slightest bit comfortable. They couldn't have proved me more wrong and clearly they are treating it as their baby too. Boy is my face red.

They have made a beautiful comic here. The print quality is truly top notch, the binding, the paper stock, it looks and feels great and it's even got that "comic book store" smell. This is a real graphic novel not some folded and stapled-together piece of shit you might expect from lesser independent comic companies. You are going to love having this on your shelf. They also have a LOT else in store (including Identity Thief, cons, digital stuff, you name it) that will knock your socks off.

What I'm trying to say is thank you Sam, Bryant and Barbra. You guys did a great fucking job.

Here are the first 3 copies of Something Animal ever (with a marketing schedule shown for scale):

First one is going to Meaghan for all her love and support. Second one is going to my Dad in Chicago so he can read it at bedtime to my niece and nephews. Third one is going on my toilet cistern in case I have guests over or I run out of toilet paper.

It will be available for you to buy tomorrow at Fanboy Comics, Emerald Knights in Burbank (where you can come from 7-9pm for the release and we'll all sign it for you), Comic Smash in Studio City and on Amazon soon!

Where are you going to put yours?


  1. Top shelf baby. Top shelf.
    I'm so proud of you. Never in my life have I taken such a journey or adventure with anyone. Or had someone to share my own with. You're going far and I'm just glad to be the one going along with you. Maybe more Disneyland and camping adventures aren't too far away for us... for now, lets settle for a night on the town. you and me, partners in crime. Monsters on the prowl. ^__^


  2. YOU are top shelf baby. Pah Rooowl.
