Love & Monsters

After a long, silent gestation period, suddenly a lot of my projects are ready to hatch.

You may remember that last year, I published a 24-hour comic called "Offline Dating". You may also remember that I mentioned a sequel to said comic, which came into being during the most recent 24-Hour Comic Day in Leipzig in September of 2014. Well, now I'm finally done coloring the sequel and am about to put out a little book containing both parts of "Offline Dating". The book will be called "Love and Monsters", and this is the cover:

As you can see, there will be both a German and an English edition.

You'll be able to get these at various comic conventions and, presumably, at Kwimbi. But first, I have to wait for the printer to actually deliver them. With any luck, they'll be ready in time for the Leipzig book fair in March.

Here's a work-in-progress/sketch version of the cover:

And here's the first page of "Offline Dating 2":

Hipsters vs. Lesung

Have I mentioned that there will be a big Hipsters reading in Dresden next month? It's on March 8 at "Sabotage" Dresden at 6:00 pm. Have a look at the Facebook event for more details.
If you can't make it to Dresden, there's a good chance there will be another reading in Berlin in April or so!

To promote the reading, Katja, Tim, and I shot a live-action trailer! The weather was much shittier than expected and we kind of froze our asses off, but I think it still turned out pretty well! Watch it here:

To sweeten the waiting period, here are two of the chapter illustrations from my HIPSTERS book:
