Emerald City Comicon this weekend!

Hey hey hey…

So Con season has officially begun.  I’ll be tabling at my first show of the season this weekend, March 1st-3rd at Emerald City Comicon in Seattle, WA.


You can find me with the awesome Josh Shalek at artist alley table S-09:


Josh is the man behind the extremely amusing & poignant Welcome to Falling Rock.  I hear he might be premiering some brand new printed comics at this show.  I highly recommend you pick one up!  I will be filling my part of the table with the complete series of Gary (books 1-3), as well as the Simon Collection, and a new Simon mini comic.  I’ll also have some promotional handouts for my new project, Victus.  Here’s what the back looks like:


Woops… Did I just announce when the first issue is coming out?

Speaking of Victus, here are some sneak peeks at my progress…

I’m very excited for Emerald City Comicon and I hope you pacific northwesterners can come out to the show!  I’ll leave you with a breakfast moment of zen, courtesy of Walker Brothers Original Pancake house…

Gary: Book 3 for sale! Comikaze post-carnage!

I’m am extremely happy to say that Gary: Book Three is now available for purchase via tyrellcannon.com:


This is the final book in the Gary series!  I have been working with a new printer called Rink, and they did a fantastic job on this book.  I couldn’t be happier with the result and I hope you all enjoy Book Three as well!


I had an awesome time at Comikaze this weekend!  My fellow exhibitors were kind and the show felt very welcoming.  My table was HUGE, and I had a hard time filling it up with product.  But I tried:

I take comics VERY seriously

Thanks to everyone who stopped by my table and said hi or purchased a book!  The only celebrity spotting for me this trip was Badger from (thebestshowonTV) Breaking Bad.  He did not try to sell me meth.


I also hit some of my favorite LA food spots and try some new ones:

clockwise: Al pastor burrito- La Estrella; Animal fries- In N Out; Chicharones & Burger- Father’s Office

I will continue to post my process in creating Gary in the coming months, so please keep checking in.  I will also have more information about my next (2) projects soon!

Dramatic Pause…

So while we’re waiting for Gary: Book Three to arrive from the printers…

A very nice review of Gary: Book One from the fine folks at Spandexless:

At Wizard World Chicago a few weeks back, I became acquainted with the work of fellow Chicagoan by the name of Daniel Warren.  His webcomic Space-Mullet is fantastic!  You should be reading it…

And I leave with a sneak peak of a Simon story I’m working on…

Gary: Book Three is on the way!  Can’t wait to share with ya’ll!

Mission Complete

I’m very excited to say this…

GARY: BOOK THREE IS COMPLETE.  Which means the entire series is COMPLETE.  To say the least, I feel a wonderful sense of accomplishment.  I appreciate everyone’s support during the last few years of working on Gary.  I’ll have more words for you regarding Gary at a later date.  In the meantime, here’s a sneak peek at the cover for book three:

I’m hoping to have it ready for purchase by the end of August and in stores in September.

In other news, I have a visitor this week! The talented Mike Manomivibul is in town for Wizard World Chicago.  Being the nice guy that he is, Mike did a nice drawing of my very own Simon:

Pretty awesome, right?  If you dig that and you’re in the city, stop by and say hi to him in artist alley.

That’s all for now!  Stay tuned for post-Gary thoughts, and news on the book release!

C2E2 Post-Carnage

C2E2 2012

What a weekend!

First off, thanks to everyone who came to see me at C2E2 this past weekend!  It was great to meet new people and to see some familiar folks!  In case you couldn’t make it:

and a look behind the scenes (so to speak)…

I had the good fortune of being placed next to these talented folks:

SPINNERETTE by Sean “KrazyKrow”


THEATER HOPPER by Tom Brazelton

KEEPER by Geoffrey Wessel & Jeff Simpson

I had a blast and I really hope ya’ll can make it next year as well!


The fellas at In This Issue were kind enough to invite me onto their podcast as a guest host last week.  We had a lot of fun talking about  AvX’s failings, Prophet’s awesomeness, Punisher’s knife skills, Mass Effect 3’s ending, and tons of other nerd-fare.  Have a listen:

Vol.2, Issue 9 

(beware: adult language)

In This Issue also covered C2E2, interviewing folks like Ryan Browne, Ryan Benjamin, Tom Stillwell, and many more!  Follow In This Issue all week for the C2E2 coverage & interviews!


Here’s a sneak peak at the progress:

Gary Process/Zinefest 2012

Zinefest 2012 was a blast!  Thank you to everyone who came out to say hi.  It was great to meet some new people and talk to some old friends.  In case you missed the show, fear not, I’m going to be exhibiting again in two weeks at the Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo (C2E2)!  This con is in it’s 3rd year and has a lot to offer.  It tends to lean more toward the capes, but you’ll find some great indy books represented too.  This show is definitely worth the trip to Chicago!  Here is the details:


You can find me at :


I’ll have some new stuff at this show, like the Cube Prints, along with Simon Collected and Gary 1-2 of course.

Speaking of Gary, I am hard at work on the 3rd (and final) book!  I’m happy to report that things are progressing quickly!

Thanks to T for the pics!  I can’t wait to show ya’ll more.  Check back in next week, and I’ll discuss panel layouts and mention some comics you need to read.
