Some Holiday gifts from my pal, multi-award winning graphic novelist Brian Fies:
GIFT #1: Brian Fies does a grand take on Clement Moore in his A Visit from an Arch-Nemesis, by the Cosmic Kid. Look for many sci fi references. I am resisting my own nerdy temptation to list them all here for you. It's more fun to discover as your read along. The comic is a great fun and evokes the classic comic book adventures.
Congratulations, Brian! He recently won the Eugene M. Emme Astronautical Literature Award, Young Adult Category, for his graphic novel Whatever Happened to the World of Tomorrow. You can read more about it here.
GIFT #2: If you would like your copy of Whatever Happened to the World of Tomorrow personalized, please let Brian know.
GIFT #3 to infinity: Stop by Brian Fies' blog The Fies Files for many comprehensive behind the scenes tips on writing and drawing. Brian's series on character design (Installment #1, Installment #2, Installment #3 and Installment #4) is essential reading for anyone considering creating visual stories from scratch. Please consider making his blog a regular stop.
