Sigma Airlines.com Officially Launches

Check out the official page for FLIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD at www.sigmaairlines.com. This is where you'll be going every Monday for the next twelve months to get your zombie fix.

Flight of the Living Dead

This is the new webcomic I've been working on for the past few weeks.

Flight of the Living Dead was created as a 60-page graphic novel, which is being serialized from January 1, 2007 to December 31, 2007. The story takes place over seven hours, with each hour comprising eight pages (the final hour is 12 pages). One new page will go up every Monday in 2007, with the first eight pages all going up on January 1. Hence the schedule will be:

* Hour One: pages 1-8, January 1
* Hour Two: pages 9-16, January 8 - February 26
* Hour Three: pages 17-24, March 5 - April 23
* Hour Four: pages 25-32, April 30 - June 18
* Hour Five: pages 33-40, June 25 - August 13
* Hour Six: pages 41-48, August 20 - October 8
* Hour Seven: pages 49-60, October 15 - December 31

Comic Book Recommendation of the Week

by Guy Delisle

I was a big fan of Guy Delisle's previous book, PYONGYANG: A JOURNEY IN NORTH KOREA, and I was delighted to see this new one at Borders today.

PYONGYANG was an autobiographical comic about Delisle's stay in North Korea while working as the director of a Korean animation studio. Delisle, who is French-Canadian, writes the book in a diary-like way, going over his daily life while working in a country that intentionally isolates itself from the rest of the world. Delisle stays in a hotel with so few guests that they all stay on one or two floors, and those are the only ones with the electricity turned on. He orders french toast in the hotel restaurant and gets soggy bread warmed in the microwave. Radios are illegal and he can't even take a walk without having a Korean "guide" come with him. Everyone in Korea must wear a pin with a picture of Kim Jong-il and Kim Il-sung, and their portraits must be hung in every room in every building in the country. Even the bathrooms. He brings a copy of Orwell's 1984 with to read and can't help but notice the similarities.

The new book, SHENZHEN, takes place in a less totalitarian country and Delisle seems to enjoy his stay in China a little bit more than he did North Korea. The differences between Western and Eastern cultures are still there, though, and he is staying in a city with very few non-Chinese people and almost no one that speaks English.

Both books are really great for anyone who likes diary-style comics like AMERICAN SPLENDOR or BLANKETS. I've read PYONGYANG three times now and I cannot recommend it enough.

My new favorite website

I'm pretty sure this is a joke, but this site is worth a lot of laughs even if it isn't.


I bought this t-shirt.

My webcomic is online

Comic Genesis, who have agreed to host my new webcomic debuted January 1, have put up the first page two months early. And I cannot yet log in to delete it. If you know how to work Google, well... chances are good you can find out a week early what the comic is about and see the first page.

Update: I figured out how to log in and take it down. They sure do make it difficult. Once you have your page set up on ComicGenesis, before you can edit it you then need to register for a username on the forum, then attach your account to your username. Why it's set up this way I have no idea, but no longer is the comic online.
