The Big Art Giveaway at San Diego!

Are you going to be at Comic-Con in San Diego this week? I am, and I'm bringing LOTS of stuff to give away.

To celebrate the release of Starkweather: Immortal #0 this week, we'll be giving away the original art from issues #0 and #1 at this week's Comic-Con in San Diego. We'll have them at the Archaia Studios Press booth (booth #2049). And how, you might wonder, do you get one of these pieces?

Just buy a copy of the book!

That's right, whenever writer Dave Rodriguez or I are signing at the ASP booth all weekend, we'll be giving away free original art from the first two issues of Starkweather: Immortal. Well, until we run out. And speaking of that...

You might think we'd run out of art pretty quickly, but actually, I work a bit differently than most comics artists. I work mainly on the computer, and start with a sketch that is sort of half-way between a rough sketch and finished drawing. AND, most importantly, I draw ONE PANEL AT A TIME, each on a separate piece of paper. So there are well over 100 pieces of art to give away. Just pick out your favorite and take it away with your shiny new copy of Starkweather: Immortal!

Find out more about the book here:

Issue number 0 (available at Comic-con) is written by Fantasy author Piers Anthony, with the script adapted by series creator Dave Rodriguez, with art by me, Patrick McEvoy, host of this humble web site. Please stop by the ASP booth and say "hi" if you're at SDCC. We'll also be at Wizard World Chicago in Artist's Alley, so if you're in Chicago, look us up then.

So to recap: ASP booth (2049), Starkweather: Immortal #0, free art with purchase whenever Dave and I are signing. See you there!
