Just thought I'd send out a friendly reminder that my graphic novel Abel
(published by Slave Labor Graphics) is still available. What's that? You
fear shelling out fifteen bucks for crap? Well, don't take my word for
it--here's what the critics have to say!

“A year from now, when people are looking back on 1998 and talking about the
year’s best, I suspect that Abel is going to be a part of that conversation.
And it deserves to be; few comics elicit such a visceral and intellectual
response at the same time.”
Five out of five stars
Cliff Biggers
Comic Shop News

“Abel moves with a sureness and complexity rare even in the works of writers
far more established than William Harms. Its theme of betrayal and lies,
and the way we come to believe in those lies and lose ourselves, develops
with subtlety and care. Abel is anti-heroic, sad, and true to life. The
comics field needs more work like this.”
Rachel (Doom Patrol) Pollack
1997 World Fantasy Award Winner--Best Novel


"Expect to hear more about Abel during the next year's Eisner nominations. A
dazzling and very disturbing comic. Very highly recommended."

And lastly, you can order a copy of Abel from the folks at Slave Labor. Just
head over to http://www.slavelabor.com/abel.html and click on the cover to
order.

Will!

Glad you found the place! Yah'll order his book, ok? I wasn't able to get mine due to problems with Diamond (you don't really wanna know), but now it's good to know I can get it direct from the publisher. See, THAT is what the connect sales revolution is all about! Being able to get the things you want, and being able to get the things you produce to the people who want them... Without the hassle of dealing with a distributor. Amen.

PS: WILL! Hope you're able to come around on Monday for the regularly scheduled chat (If it's working, that is.)
