First, a quick note: we have release dates for two upcoming projects. The first issue of the “Dog Man” graphic novel hits stores June 14th, and the Monster Hunter anthology Jim contributed to comes out October 3rd! Check out the full slate of Upcoming Works here.
Next, we have Jim’s schedule for Houston Comicpalooza!
Much to our delight, Jim will be joined our friend Michael Ashleigh Finn (aka Mickey Finn) on two of his panels. Mickey has been a major figure of the Butcher fandom for over a decade, and he serves as a beta, a forum moderator, and a Thematic Consultant on the Dresden Files comic. He’s also an accomplished writer in his own right, contributing stories to Dirty Magick: New Orleans and Dirty Magick: Los Angeles, and is producer, host, and sound editor on the Gentlemen Nerds podcast. Come say hi!
