New Neptune Review
Rod Lott reviews Neptune along with a few other Sparkplug titles at bookgasm.com. It's been a year since Neptune was first published and it takes a review like this to remind me how proud of this book I am. It took me two and a half years to draw, and several more when you count the fact that I first tried to make it into an animated film back in 2004. The band Explosions in the Sky was set to make the soundtrack for it, if you can believe that. I sure dropped the ball on that one... but did I really want to live in my parents house slaving away for years to see it completed and then just put up on youtube? The whole time when I was drawing Neptune I didn't even have any idea if it'd even see print. But as luck has it it did, and if you haven't read it yet I highly encourage you to. Go buy it from Sparkplug or check it out from the Multnomah County Library if you live in Portland.
