Black Beetle @ Heroes!

Black Beetle: No Way Out Cover
Hello guys,

I wanted just to let you all know that I am gonna be at Heroes Conthis weekend, and I will have some BB goodies.

I am printing a limited (numbered and signed) 100 copies of the very first Black Beetle ashcan, "No Way Out" (that's the title of the first arc).
It contains the first 5 sequential pages (which you have seen on Pulp Sunday) and a sketchbook section with lots of concepts and illos. The ashcan is limited to 100 copies and I will only bring part of those to Heroes, so I will have a few more for Dragon Con and SDCC and some to sell online to those interested.
The book is fully colored, tip to toe, has 12 pages plus inside covers, and measures approx. 7.5x10.75" (magazine size). You can see the front cover above and the interior front cover below.
All books come with a quick Black Beetle sketch (when purchased from me - I am planning to send some to a few stores without sketch) in the inside back cover (I create a space there for this purpose).
Those who are interested please email me using the contact button via my website.

Other goodies are large prints, 11.7x16.5" & 13x19", archival ink on archival paper, of the cover/movie poster above (email for rates if interested), and other items like the mousepads and shirts which are also available on Zazzle and CafePress (that's where I ordered mine ;)).
Cafe Press
Check Pulp SUnday for pricing info.

Of course, if you are going to be at Heroes, feel free to stop by even if just to say hi :)
See you there tomorrow!!! :)

As mentioned on Pulp Sunday, Black Beetle (and the show in general) was a success: we sold out of all the 30 copies I had with me and everyone was asking ONE question: "When is Black beetle coming out?" :D I will have hopefully an answer to that soon ;)

Matt: thank you for ordering a copy, Matt, I really appreciate it :) Will shipping them later this week.
Rachelle: it was wonderful to see you again at the show :D thank you for the kind words about my websites and my work and thank you fo picking up BB at the show - I am glad you enjoyed it :) I hope the trip back home went smooth.
David: Everything is fine, David, hope it's the same with you :) Thanks for digging the BB and that Savior first issue looks sweet. Best wishes in getting it printed on paper and on the shelves :)
Emiliano: grazie mille, cumpa' :) Quell'immagine e' la seconda di copertina.

Online guitar lessons are a great way to learn guitar. Cheaper and more convenient than private studio lessons, the technology is now at a point where the difference in quality is nonexistent and actually has many advantages.

This might be a bit off-topic but I believe there are a lot of smokers here on I have recently decided to find a good manufacturer of e-cigarettes. I'm done with paying so much for normal smokes.A friend recommended [url=]G Smoke[/url] According to their website this is how they described their product:
"Green Smoke offers quality Electronic cigarettes with spendable cartridges that compose of the highest smoke volume in the industry. With a variety of flavors and nicotine levels, Green Smoke's™ patented product offers convenience and performance that is unmatched. G Smoke products have been independently tested for safety."
I'm thinking of buying them. Anyone else have experience with this e-cigarette?
