Yikes, Ben! I didn't know about this until just now. Glad it all got cleared up. By the way, Gina gave me a copy of Zita at Comic-Con and it looks great. Congrats on seeing the book go to print!

Thanks, Kazu. I wish I had been at Comic-Con to hand you the book. :(

But it's ready for preorder now, which is exciting. And you can preview the first chapter online here which is also... exciting? I hope so.

Here is an illustration I did for the (not yet) relaunch of the Zita site. I went another way with it, so this little picture is sort of unemployed:

You're relaunching the Zita site already? But it's only been, like, what? 5 years?

:P

:D


Great looking preview art, Ben. Look forward to the new site :)

I'm just picking on you, mate.

Obviously you've been busy. I've just noticed because I have kept going back to the Zita site every few months to see if it's been updated.

I laughed. Out loud.

:D

Such a perfect little re-introduction to the character!

Also: WOOO! She's back!

Hey, Ben - how would I go about getting a couple of signed copies of the book? I'd like to give one to my niece. Would I just buy them from Amazon and get them to you somehow or could I buy directly from you?

That's awesome! Great trailer!

Alllllmost as fascinating as the Benjamin the brave video on the same page! Which is you, I assume, yes? He looks like your drawings of you, so..

Ben just got done reading all the stuff up here. Your sense of timing is PERFECT! You pull me along in your stories and don't let me go till the very last frame.

Your Zita comic is awesome, and it makes me wish I had some kids so I could let them read it. But my favorite are your journal comics. I've always wanted to try that, and you may have been just the inspiration i needed, thanks!

Thanks, Ryan, for the compliment! I'm finding that journal comics are a good place to experiment with timings and gesture and other cartooning skills. The pressure is off since they are short and based on real life. (and drawing the kids is always fun).

I've finally collected a lot of the recent comics and some art into a book which I'm doing a short run of. For anyone interested, the details (and a few pictures) are here:

Oh, and yeah, that's me in the Benjamin the Brave video... :shock:
