This Wednesday, October 5, 2011, my Modern Masters Frazer Irving will be published from TwoMorrows Press. Available through Diamond Distributors to comic stores & retailers or through the TwoMorrows website (where you can also obtain a digital copy if you prefer), the book chronicles Frazer’s life, entrance into comics, and evolving evocative artistic style. As a pioneer in digital comic illustration, Frazer’s career is a fascinating one in the transitions from traditional pencil, ink, and color work to a completely digital platform.
With a foreword by Grant Morrison and insightful commentary from collaborators such as David Hine, Simon Spurrier, Fabian Nicieza, Phil Hester, Joe Casey, and Andy Diggle, the book also includes never-before-seen images, process sketches, and a full color gallery of Frazer Irving art.

I just finished doing a podcast with Comic Geek Speak about the forthcoming Frazer Irving book I wrote. Here is a link to the podcast. The podcast is also available for free Mp3 download and via iTunes. Towards the end of the podcast, there’s a coupon-code offer for a discount off the print edition, as well as a freebie ebook edition for those who purchase the print version.
Also, TwoMorrows has posted a 20-something page preview of the book here. The book includes a foreword by Grant Morrison and insightful commentary on Frazer by Andy Diggle, Phil Hester, Joe Casey, Simon Spurrier, Fabian Nicieza, and David Hine.

After nearly a week in San Diego for Comic Con, I’ve returned home and am just now uploading pics. In addition to scores of review copies I obtained, I also conducted four interviews that I’ll be transcribing for publication with Graphic Novel Reporter. In the meantime, however, here are a few highlight images from the trip:

Well, the manuscript was submitted by the May deadline, but delays in editing and production have pushed the publication date back. While I do not know a specific new date, when I do, I’ll post it here.
The foreword by Grant Morrison is phenomenal and I’m really honored by Grant, Si Spurrier, David Hine, Fabian Nicieza, Phil Hester, Andy Diggle, and Joe Casey sharing their time and experiences collaborating with Frazer for the book. Although much of the bawdy content and contextual introduction I wrote have been cut for length, perhaps an unedited version or samples thereof will end up here.
It’s been a while since I’ve updated my blog here. I blame the whirlwind experience of C2E2 last week in Chicago. The con was a blast and I’ll be posting video here of my panel on comic scriptwriting and craft with Mark Waid and Matt Fraction. I purchased some great sketches and prints, and met a lot of really nice people in Artist’s Alley. I’ll post convention pics and some images of the sketches and prints as well.
I’ve also recently started publishing with GraphicNovelReporter.com and my first review was recently posted on their site. I’ll post a separate entry with the information.
Finally, I just learned today that my book on Frazer Irving will be receiving a foreword by a highly acclaimed, award-winning author. More details to come.
