This Wednesday, Nov.3, my first issue of DC Comic's new SUPERBOY series launches. In a way the release of Superboy marks a sort of milestone in my career, one I never saw coming.

I was still working full-time as a line cook at La Hacienda restaurant on Queen Street West in Toronto. I'd work night shifts and then get up early to draw all day before I had to go back in for my next shift.I'd finished my first long-form comics work, the self-published LOST DOGS about a year and a half earlier and I'd been struggling with what to do next.

I can't recommend Emi Lenox's new Graphic Novel collection EMITOWN enough! This is your chance to show your support for a wonderful new cartoonist. Get out to your local comic store and pre-order a copy!!"EMITOWN is a sketch diary in which I have drawn one page for every single day. I use a broad range of styles and it's really not the average diary comic. Originally a web comic, a full years worth of strips will be collected in the trade paperback from Image. It's going to be a little over 400 pages of strips featuring an introduction by Jamie S. Rich (Spell Checkers, You Have Killed Me) and a guest page from Brandon Graham (King City, Multiple Warheads). It has received praises from notorious comic folk such as Jeffrey Brown, Mike Allred, Jeff Lemire, and Jeff Parker."DIAMOND ORDER CODE: AUG100439ISBN: 1607063190Check out the website the comic stemmed from!http://www.emitown.comHere is some early praise!"EMITOWN is one of my favorite places to visit...I simply love the fresh ...
