THE HIDDEN - Special Sneak Preview

This is a sneak preview of my book THE HIDDEN: the first 12 pages of the story, along with a thirteenth page from much later in the book. Unlike the usual blog, I've arranged the posts - or pages - to be viewed from top to bottom, scrolling down, in order of the page numbers (and when you reach the bottom of this page, don't forget to click on "older posts" to see the rest of the pages). Any later posts will of course appear at the top, but the original 13 preview pages will remain in top to bottom order.

THE HIDDEN was originally scheduled for Fall 2010, but will now be released sometime in 2011. I want to thank my publisher, Fantagraphics for being so understanding! This book is a bit different from anything I've done before and I hope loyal readers will feel it's been worth the wait. Thank you (and apologies!) to all the nice people who have been asking about it or telling me they are looking forward to it. It's still coming -- just not as soon as originally announced.

This preview will remain up for as long as I think it should. I may even add extra sneak peeks and details as time goes on, up until the book is finally released. I do this in the spirit of fun (hey, it's a comic!) and as a gesture of thanks to my loyal readers, who are the coolest people in the world.
