I'm a guest at The Miami Book Fair 2018. I'll be hawking The Red Hook vol.1 New Brooklyn, and The Alcoholic 10th Anniversary edition (with writer Jonathan Ames). I'm also doing panels and participating in the Drink & Draw! Check out my schedule:
Thursday, November 15
Drink & Draw @ The Standard
7pm | The Standard Spa, 40 Island Ave, Miami Beach | Free
Join your host, raucous author Conor McCreery, for a hilariously graphic night of cocktails and comics. First, renowned illustrators George O’Connor, Dean Haspiel, Maggie Thrash and Liana Finck will go marker-to-marker in a book themed draw-off competition! Then we turn the drawing tables on you as you work in teams to create your own illustration. Prizes, drinks and fun guaranteed!
Saturday, November 17
3pm Beasts of Our Own Making
The seductive pull of love — it’s an endlessly powerful force in literature, creating some of the funniest, bleakest, and most haunting scenarios we can imagine as writers and artists. Pull up a chair with Dean Haspiel and Jonathan Ames (The Alcoholic) and Nate Powell (Come Again) to find out what dark beasts lie on the edges of desire. Moderated by Adrian Todd Zuniga.

12pm Webcomics to Print Comics: The Revolution is Here
Webcomics USED to be about finding a way to break in to print, but nowadays the web is all you need to make a living AND tell stories that publishers think “don’t have a market.”
Dean Haspiel (The Red Hook), Ngozi Ukazu (Check, Please), and Farel Dalrymple (It Will All Hurt), will talk about how they build their audience while giving voice to under-served ones, and whether they think they still need print in their careers. Moderated by Joan Hilty.
