the wait is almost over. After a pretty long spell of preparation,
challenges and long blissful work hours, my new book SIRENS will be
making its debut in a special variant edition this weekend at the
Baltimore Comic Con. The con organizer, Marc Nathan, was the gentleman
who set me up with BOOM!, so this seemed like the perfect way to thank
To celebrate the book’s official mass release
on September 17th, I am going on my first-ever national signing tour.
Six stores and two conventions in two weeks! And all but one stop will
include an exclusive variant cover! Here is my schedule (some of the
signing times could be extended if attendance warrants):
Wednesday, September 17th
Collector’s Paradise, Winnetka, CA, 6pm – 8
pm. The variant cover spotlights SIRENS villain Niada and the model for
that character, Diana Knight, will be attending to sign copies. Also
planning to attend is Akira Lane, the model for the Siren Kage and
Jennifer Nguyen (Mazu) both of whom appear on the double covers that
form the main image of the regular edition. Other models that will
appear in upcoming issues may attend, but nothing's confirmed yet.
Thursday, September 18th
Kieth’s Comics, Dallas, TX, 6 pm – 8 pm. The
Siren Bombshell appears on this variant cover and the model Chan
Everest will be there to sign with me
Friday – Sunday,
Cincinnati Comic Con. A variant featuring Camille
Bishop as Ammo will be sold at this show. Regrettably, my niece won’t be
able to attend, but I’m sure there will be future opportunities to get
her autograph on this edition
Tuesday, September 23rd
Comics, Lowell, MA, 6 pm – 8 pm. This variant spotlights Highness, the
Sirens leader. I’m not sure if my model Margie Vizcarra Cox will be able
to attend, but I will let you know if she is.
Third Eye Comics, Annapolis, MD, 11 am – 1 pm. This
cover spotlights Interface. No appearance from my model Sherita Dunbar
due to her not living in the area, but please holds on to your copies
for future autograph opportunities
Saturday & Sunday,
Pittsburgh Comic Con. While there will be no
variant cover specific to this show, model April Hunter (Agony) will be a
guest there as well and will be more than happy to autograph any
version you put in front of her.
Tuesday, September 30th
Tate's Comics, Ft. Lauderdale, FL, 5 pm – 7pm, This variant actually
will solo-feature April Hunter as Agony on the cover and the lovely
model plans to be with me to sign this edition as well
Wednesday, October 1st
Coliseum of Comics, Sanford, FL, 4 pm – 6pm.
This final stop is at my local comic shop and the variant will spotlight
the Sirens mystic Fanisha. My wife Phoenicia Flynn (Fanisha) will be
accompanying me to autograph the books along with several other cast
members who have consented to pop into the store and autograph copies,
including April Hunter yet again! This will likely be the largest
gathering of cast members for the tour and a fitting finish to what
promises to be a very exciting—and exhausting— experience.
See you all soon!
