Time to ROAR: “I WANT The Humans Volume I: Humans for Life!”

 

humansvol1-covKeenan, Kristina and I are very proud to announce the first collection of our cult-hit series The Humans will be hitting the streets in one month – Wednesday, March 11th! This collection includes issues 1 through 4 of the Image Comics series, as well as the coveted issue #0 that we self-published last summer and sold out of immediately! We’ve also crammed in some other fun extras along with all the covers I’ve done and the awesome pinups by Benjamin Marra, Johnny Ryan, Skinner, Katie Skelly and Kristina Collantes!

This week is the week to make sure your local comic shops and book stores have pre-ordered copies for the release date. These days, pre-orders are important for publishing books, so we’re rallying our Humans Army to spread the word about this book and make sure your shops know you want it!

If you don’t have a comic shop or bookstore nearby, you can also pre-order on Amazon and that helps us, too! Look! It’s less than $10!!! 

Get out there and ROAR: “I WANT THE HUMANS!!!”

And don’t forget we have patches and t-shirts and prints available in The Humans Webstore at our website Humansforlife.com

And don’t worry – We ain’t done! The Humans will return with issue #5 in May!

 

The Humans #1 is here!

The Art of Henry & Glenn Forever & Ever on display at La Luz de Jesus.

I’m overwhelmed with pride about this show. I never thought I’d see such a big show of my work… Never thought I’d see an entire comic I’ve drawn all hung in a gallery… Never thought I’d have the equivalent of both a solo show and a curated group show at one of my favorite galleries La Luz de Jesus… And ten years of Igloo Tornado? Crazy! Anyway… Thanks to everyone who came out to the opening night. It was a huge bash and lots of fun!

Art Show: The Art of Henry & Glenn Forever & Ever

Oct_20141

I’m very excited for this art show and book release party for Henry & Glenn Forever & Ever! The infamous La Luz de Jesus Gallery, birthplace of Low-Brow Art – Southern California’s best contribution to the art world, will host an exhibition of over 100 pieces of original art from the new graphic novel. Including all of the pages of my Mother Suite: Buried Secrets, and all of the cover art that I created for the book, along with wonderful pages of art by Josh Bayer, Jeremy Baum, Chuck BB, Champoy, Alex Chiu, Max Clotfelter, Andrew Cox, Matt Crabe, Beth Dean, J. T. Dockery, Gabrielle Gamboa, Ken Garduno, Bruno Guerreiro, Justin Hall, Megan Hutchison, Keenan Marshall Keller, Ed Luce, Benjamin Marra, MariNaomi, Gabe Martinez, Kiyoshi Nakazawa, Scot Nobles, Jeremy Owen, Marc J. Palm, Nate Powell, Grant Reynolds, Mark Rudolph, Jim Rugg, Sean Stepanoff, Gin Stevens, Mark Todd, Dalton Webb, Mikey Wetzel, Eric Yahnker, Dan Zettwoch and more!!!

Please join us for the opening reception Friday, October 3rd, from 8-11 pm. Many of the artists will be in attendance ready to sign your Henry & Glenn Forever & Ever books. My Heavy Tuesday buddies will be DJing metal and punk all night.

Come help me celebrate this weirdly silly phenomenon that fell out of the Igloo Tornado’s beer bottle nearly 10 years ago! Incidentally, it’s also the Igloo Tornado’s 10th anniversary.

HELLBOY 20th Anniversary Art Show

This Friday, May 2nd, is the opening for the Hellboy 20th Anniversary Art Show at Hero Complex Gallery. Here’s my take on Hellboy – loosely inspired by several classical paintings of Saint Michael fighting the Devil. 18×24″ watercolor and ink on paper. Neely_hellboy_1

It looks like it will be a great show! Check out some of the other artwork at this tumblr.
