Xoc was noted in a New York Times article on comics with educational value. Be sure to check out the accompanying photo, especially the book the boy is reading. :)

White sharks endangered?

Three environmental groups petitioned the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration earlier this week to list the West Coast population of great white sharks under the Endangered Species Act. It's a fascinating piece. Read the Washington Post article.

On a separate note, there's a gritty, punkish band in Washington, D.C., (my home town) called Shark Week debuting their album this week, which happens to be the Discovery Channel's annual Shark Week. (FYI, there's some swearing in the songs.)

Fan art!

Yahoo! Below is some wonderful Xoc fan art I received from brothers Alec (8) and Sam (4) from Minnesota! Thanks, guys! I'm glad you like the book, and that you took the time to draw for me!

A reminder that you can read Xoc Pup, the 8-page, online "mid-quel" to Xoc at the Big Planet Comics website, which sponsored the strip!

Cool reviews from Meepzine and Ghetto Manga for Xoc: The Journey of a Great White (Oni Press), which hit shelves today. 

I'll be at Big Planet Comics this Saturday, July 28, at the the College Park store from 11 am-1pm and at the Vienna store from 3-5pm signing Xoc with colorist Evan Keeling (check out the limited edition promo poster below, available for $5!). And then, well, maybe we'll hit Spacebar to unwind. Please join us for one or all of these!
