The Big Launch – Comic Book Tattoo.
Been inking, and writing, and doing a lot of walking still.
Up side to the insanity of visiting Toronto is all the exercise, reminds me to keep it going at home. With the always present list of things to do when your freelance, it easy to forget to get off your ass sometimes.
And of course the net always calls to be fed. To bad it doesn’t take walks and crap itself. Been contemplating getting a dog friend lately.
But Damn, it would have been cool to have been there for the official big launch of Comic Book Tattoo, Tori Amos’s monster anthology book!
The photo here of a panel is by the K-Squared: They have a nice full report posted about the panel at the con, with Amos, Rantz, and 6 of the contributors. And the Tori Amos signing later. And there is a clip of the panel posted here on Flicker by comiquero.com, dug up by Russell Lissau.
There’s also some cool shots up on Rantz flicker stream. And K. Star St.Germain posted the first page from what looks like a stunning story here. And i love this shot Sarah Jaffe took of herself with the book. There’s a set here of one of the signings. And bellow is Rantz with some folks who posted this on their feed, proud owners of a limited edition. I believe word is everything that went with them to SDCC is gone, all sold out! There’s a lot of buz on this thing.
I hope my story printed well. Kind of afraid to see how it looks along side some of the other stuff in the previews!
ED: New Stuff. 1st Review of the book.
In anticipation of the debut of Comic Book Tattoo at Comic-Con International in San Diego, CBR TV, in association with MySpace Comic Books, caught up with Tori Amos at Amoeba Music in Hollywood for an exclusive one-on-one interview about the new massive Image Comics anthology, which features new work by a host of sequential art’s brightest and most innovative talents, all turning in new work based on the songs of Tori Amos.
