Announcing: THE BUREAU!

Very pleased to begin daily postings, Monday through Friday, of an album I've been working on for around four years, titled "THE BUREAU". The idea behind the album is it's a full working day at a job, meaning when it is complete, there will be around nine hours of music - sufficiently filling an entire day of work with electronic noise. Each moment of a day is timed to a track of music along with a custom comics panel. I'll be drawing panels every day throughout the year to complete the album.

Here's the first three tracks, to cover your first ten minutes at work:

January 24 2017 - A few press items and other materials

THE REALIST NOW IN Text-Searchable PDF FORMAT

Our thanks go out to Jason Witherspoon, who has provided The Realist Archive a set of text searchable PDFs of each issue. This vastly improves the searchability and usefulness of the archive itself. It's presently on me to add the PDFs in, and I'm doing so in order, from 1 til 146. You can presently access PDFs on the first seven issues (Begin with issue number one) I'm taking this opportunity to also add a 'Next Issue' and 'Previous Issue' button to each issue, which will allow scanning through the set much easier, as well. Our thanks to Jason for such impressive work on this. All issues will be set up with PDFs soon.

Item: BEST AMERICAN COMICS 2017

Very happy to have received this review from The Washington Post on the John Wilcock comic. Scott and I were included in this year's BEST AMERICAN COMICS (amazon link) and this Washington Post review had a great review of the John Wilcock segment:

"A deftly presented bio-comic that illuminates New York’s underground press movement at midcentury. "

- Much appreciated, thank you.
