Image Comics to print publish Dean Haspiel's THE RED HOOK

I was a surprise guest at Image Expo 2018 and I'm thrilled to announce that Image Comics will be print publishing my The Red Hook graphic novel this summer!

THE RED HOOK, Vol 1: NEW BROOKLYN by Dean Haspiel
Emmy and Ringo Award winner Dean Haspiel brings THE RED HOOK to print for the first time.

The Red Hook is a super-thief who is bequeathed the Omni-Fist of altruism and is transformed into a superhero against his will or he will die a year after a sentient Brooklyn’s heart is broken and physically secedes from America to form New Brooklyn.

The graphic novel will hit stores in June 2018.

Will Eisner: Breaking Fourth Walls since 1940 at NY Comics & Picture-story Symposium, 2/27/2018 @7pm

I will be speaking at Will Eisner: Breaking Fourth Walls since 1940 (if not earlier) at The 209th meeting of the NY Comics & Picture-story Symposium which will be held on Tuesday, Feb. 27, 2018 at 7pm at Parsons School of Design, Kellen Auditorium (Room N101, off the lobby), Sheila C. Johnson Design Center. 66 Fifth Avenue. Free and open to the public.

Join comics writer and historian Danny Fingeroth (chair of Will Eisner Week) and a panel of fourth-wall-breaking experts including Dean Haspiel (The Red Hook), R. Sikoryak (The Unquotable Trump) and Miriam Katin (Letting It Go) as they explore Eisner’s innovative illusion-shattering in comics, and place it in an enlightening context of creative risk-taking in other comics and in other media.


IndieGoGo campaign for Dean Haspiel's THE LAST BAR AT THE END OF THE WORLD

We've launched an IndieGoGo campaign for my new play, THE LAST BAR AT THE END OF THE WORLD, produced & directed by Philip Cruise.

Off-Broadway theater is difficult to produce, especially in NYC, and any support you can give; monies, spread-the-word, cheer, etc., is helpful and we're incredibly grateful.

Philip Cruise, Stoya, Seth Gilliam and I got together and shot a fun video for y'all, thanks to our filmmaker pal, a good/old friend of mine, Shannon Goldman.

Here is a link to the crowdfunding page and video with all its campaign perks: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/dean-haspiel-s-last-bar-at-the-end-of-the-world#/
