Jellaby shorts :: Who Needs Friends? preview

Flight Volume 8 is in bookstores now! It is the last book in the series, and I bid Flight farewell with one last Jellaby story, “Who Needs Friends?” (the preview above is of the first 4 pages.)

The title is a little bit of an in-joke with some of the Flight crew, but the story itself (and what Jason learns in the end) is a reflection on what Flight has meant to me over the years.

It’s no coincidence that the first Jellaby story ever published was in the pages of Flight (years before the first graphic novel), and a definite highlight for me over the years have been the relationships I’ve formed — both personal and professional — with this wonderfully talented and crazy group of people who have really pushed me to become a better artist, and simply, a better person.

I’m proud to have been a part of this group of people, and especially proud to look on them as my extended family.

It’s been such a great run for all of us, and we have you, the readers, to thank for that. All of you who bought or read or helped to tirelessly promote Flight and our work, you were the ones that made it such a great experience. We all put in the sweat and love to get this project off the ground, and we saw that reflected in the amazing support for (what started as) our fun “little” project.

So, um, where was I? Oh, right. If you’re going to be at the San Diego Comic-Con this coming week, July 20-24, pop by the Flight booth (booth #2235) and help us say goodbye to the old girl (or if you won’t be there, you can always pick up a copy of the book online or at your local book or comic store)! I’ll be at the Flight booth, signing copies of Flight! I’ll also have on hand both Jellaby books, and if you ask nicely, I may just let you have a peek at the next book I’m working on. ;)

Hope to see you there!
