  1. I love your comic work – when will HAWAIIAN DICK, Volume 3 come out?

      Thanks, Rob. Since the last issue that was supposed to be included in the trade was delayed, the third volume has been pushed back. Look for a new Dick book later this year.

    Hi there! I met you — briefly — at the Windy City Comic Con. You were kind enough to give me a comic (Hawaiian Dick) for free because I’m new to comics and still discovering what I like and don’t like. Well, I liked Hawaiian Dick and ’76, which I did pay for. 😀
    Reading both of those has helped me understand what is possible in comics. I mean, beyond superhero stuff, some of which I like, but I’m enjoying finding out that there is more to comics than superheroes. I’ve begun noodling around with some non-superhero ideas for comics and it’s been fun.
    I look forward to reading more of your work, and congratulations on all your success! I’m interested to see what Hollywood makes of your comics.
    Thank you.

      Thank YOU, Karen! Glad to help introduce you to some of the different options lurking behind comic book covers.

      Hope you keep reading, and thanks again for giving the books a try.

    Hey Clay. What’s this new book you’re doing with Tony Harris? I just read a little blurb about it over at CBR in an interview with Hank Kanalz.

    Hi Clay, good to see you out at C2E2! Any news on Black Kite?

    Hey Clay,
    I have been a comic book fan since junior high. Mainly Marvel and some DC. Got out of it somewhere along the line in college. But always appreciate the art and writing. This is so cool that you write comics!

    Cheers!

    Hey Clay. With DC announcing today that the Wildstorm imprint is being shut down, where does that leave The Further Adventures of the Whistling Skull? Vertigo perhaps?
