I'm currently half way through the book, there's no date sheduled as I know. Tokyo Pop kinda of came about by accident, I was working at Kinkos in Hollywood and one of their graphic designers came in to the store and we started talking and he asked for some pages of my work.

I didnt think much of it, three months past and Tpop's editor called and there you go! I fell in jackass backwords, after going to cons for years sitting in lines for hours and it takes working at Kinkos to nail a book. As for SLG, I showed them the work but they passed on it.

Fools!

Actually, I think it's really cool that it's going thru Tpop rather than SLG. Shows that they're not afraid of trying something different.

The people at SLG are pretty cool, I think at the time they had another "kids" title in the works so they hooked me up with one of there writers to work on a diff project, but that had to sit on the sidelines. I couldnt pass up the chance to work with Keith Giffen. The Lobo man!!!

here's old older verson of the the cast, I used this cover originaly when I went to the con's. I look back at this and I cring at the coloring :(

This is a kids book?

Or did you mean "title starring kids."

Very nice work, and a Kinko's discovery. I think Kinko's is the Top Hat Malt shop of the comics art world!
