Launch Scheduled for Big Top Otto September 28

It has just be confirmed that Big Top Otto will be launched on September 28 at 1 p.m. at my favourite comic book store, Little Island Comics in Totonto. The good folks at Little Island have offered up their space and support for the event, which seems fitting as it is the only comic book store in all of Canada that specializes solely in comics for kids! If you haven't discovered it yet, give yourself a treat and go check out their remarkable selection of titles for kids of all ages.
Peter Birkemoe at The Beguiling (Little Island's parent store) has very kindly offered to represent me in the sale of my original comic art, so in conjunction with the launch a dozen or so pieces of art from the first two books will also be there for show and sale. Prices are still to be set but they should be around or below the $100 range for a page of original art - so you can take home a bit of Otto!

On the home front, I'm now pencilling page 35 of Big Star Otto, having inked and coloured up to page 22. Here's a sneak peek at one of the pages I have just finished colouring, a big double page spread of Otto and Crackers' tour of Super Nova Studios. Needless to say, it ends in chaos.
Check out my Elephants Never Forget Facebook page for up to date information on the launch times. Hope to see you at the launch!
