New Modern Masters book on Frazer Irving due Sept. 21

When Nathan Wilson and Eric Nolen-Weathington approached me about doing a Modern Masters book on Frazer Irving, I had to ask, “Frazer who?” Cause I don’t follow many current comics, and hadn’t been exposed to his work.

My loss!

This guy is Good. With a capital “G”. I now know what I was missing, and after seeing just a few samples of his work on Witch Boy and The Return of Bruce Wayne, I was sold.

Don’t take my word for it. Check out this free preview and be amazed.

And then if you’re as impressed with Frazer’s work as I am, go to this link to preorder Vol. 26 of our Modern Masters series, or pick it up at your local comic book store on September 21.

Goodnight, Irene!

Thanks to all who wrote asking if we weathered Hurricane Irene here in Raleigh, North Carolina. We’re all high and dry here, after a weekend of heavy rain and high winds, but little actual damage. We’re much more fortunate that so many others who are dealing with flooding and power outages in other areas. Having lived through the aftermath of Hurricane Fran several years ago (which really tore up our lovely town), my hearts out to all those who didn’t fare as well as we did.
