Hello everyone! It's been a loooooooooong time, but I'm back and so is Tales of a Checkered Man! It feels amazing to get back to the strip and get the ball rolling again.

A lot has changed since the last comic was posted. The holiday's were jam-packed with wrapping up my latest set of Marvel sketchcards for Rittenhouse as well as a lot of private commissions. I honestly couldn't keep up. That was a great problem to have! =o) However, there's only so much time in the day as they say and something had to give. In the midst of all the excitement I was pleased to learn that I'd been accepted into Artist Alley at C2E2! I was blown away! The opportunity to table at C2E2 felt like the perfect time to finally finish up the long-gestating TOACM vol.1 trade/collection I've been talking about for so long. So as much as I didn't want to, I knew in my heart I had to keep TOACM the webcomic on hold, and once my other obligations were completed I would spend the time I'd pour into the strip on the book. I'm pleased to report that the book is 90% complete and in the final editing stages with a proof coming soon. I'm so excited! Only a small handful of people have seen the book thus far and the feedback has been amazingly positive! I'm so excited to share it with you all!

Now that the bulk of the work on the book is done, I can see the light at the end of the tunnel and turn my attention BACK to producing the best webcomic I can. I'm re-energized after the hiatus and anxious to get back to work on publishing new strips!

The book will officially debut at C2E2 on April 26th-28th and be available to purchase from the site after that. A digital version of the book will hopefully be available shorty afterword.

Thanks again for sticking around! You guys are awesome!
