Page 98 of my graphic novel about the Iraq War. The story is winding down at this point, and nothing much happens in the three remaining pages, which I’m sure will do wonders for the little graph at the side of my Tumblr dashboard. I will continue to post updates after the next few weeks as I adjust some of the earlier pages in hopes of making the artwork consistent, and I will be putting the entire book online in one big post once it’s ready for publication i.e. around Christmastime.
After that, I’ll start work on my next book, which is a collection of other Iraq War stories. 7 Nissan began as one of these, but turned out to be long enough for a book in its own right; the other ones range from 6-50 pages and so get lumped together. The 50 pager (The Best Iraqi Ever) appeared earlier on this website as a series of sketches that I did while waiting for trains during my vacation in Ukraine last summer, and will appear, with improved artwork, as a mini-comic before the rest of the book is complete.
I’ve also got two more books outlined in post-it notes on the wall of my office, which I will probably discuss in some detail later on, and which should keep me drawing comics for at least the next decade or so.
