Book of Boy Trouble Volume 2

The Book of Boy Trouble - Volume 2 edited by Robert Kirby and David Kelly is almost here!!! My story, "Click-Download" is in it and I'm excited!!! It's due out some time in September and you can pre-order it here! It features work from me, Rob, David (DK), Jen Camper, Michael Fahy, Justin Hall, Andy Hartzell, Anonymous Boy, Craig Bostick, Steve MacIsaac, GB Jones, Derek Charm, Tim Fish, Brett Hopkins, Jon Macy, Howard Cruse, Abby Denson, Ed Luce, Nick Leonard, Dave Ortega, Robert Triptow, Bill Roundy and Sina Shamsavari. Most of these folks' bios, drawings and websites can be found at Prism Comics.

I wanted to simply write something about the upcoming book, but I just can't go without saying what big fans I am and always have been of Rob and DK. I used to read Rob's syndicated strip "Curbside" in DC's Metro Weekly (MW) and DK's "Steven Comics" in the Washington Blade. David Kelly won me over with his story about wanting the Mego Wonder Woman doll, which I wanted, too. (Luckily, I had a cool mother who got me Batgirl, Supergirl and Invisible Girl.) He also did the incredibly cool cover for Book of Boy Trouble 2. He also immortalized me by turning me into the "Little Locks Boy." Sadly though, Rob ends his 17 year run of "Curbside" this month. Hopefully there will be a compilation chronicling the adventures of the one-eyed Nathan. I can't wait to see what comes next from either of them. Love you, boys!

V, did I tell you that one of my favorite single panels in the entire book is "All that drama - and he didn't even care!" from your piece? The expression on your character's face and his rubbery legs cracked me up! (It's a great little story folks.) See you at SPX - will be giving you your copies then! XO Your pal Rob
