Atomic annihilation, mass extinction and the apocalypse are the stuff of nightmares and fanboy thrills. Following in the footsteps of Cormac McCarthy’s The Road, Mad Max, and the New Testament, six independent comic artists band together to survive Earth’s demise by creating a comics anthology about the End. Nomads: Tales From the Edge of the World takes readers on a journey into a post-apocalyptic landscape through the creative, terrifying and sometimes perverse minds of today’s up-and-coming cartoonists. The anthology features the unique visions of Jose Carmona, Michael LaRiccia, Dave McKenna, Frederick “Fredo” Noland, Nik Moore and Frank Reynoso. Jonathan “Swifty” Lang, creator and writer of Feeding Ground from Archaia, provides a foreword.

David Quinn and The Littlest Bitch

Who is The Littlest Bitch? Little Isabel is a deliciously funny cross between the mischievous Eloise and The Bad Seed – and she’s tapped into her inner CEO to become the 5-year-old tyrant readers will love to hate. Like all good children’s stories for adults, this one has a moral – if you dream of swimming with the sharks, you just might get eaten alive! Become a fan at The Littlest B on Facebook.


I have a new book coming out this weekend, the one-volume edition of my enormous fantasy adventure comic, Order of Tales ( ). There’s a book release party and signing this Friday at Bergen Street Comics in Brooklyn: and I’ll also have the books at MoCCA!



I’m returning to MoCCA (the last one I was at was….the first one. Yikes.)  and will be debuting the print version of my comic “she said” that I originally serialized on my website. I’m at the Outlines Press table – D13 – with partner in crime JD Glass.


My husband Paul and I will be at MoCCA this year (table I10) and will be debuting the comic we worked on together, The Stolen Lovelight. He wrote it and I drew it, and we’re both pretty excited about it! It’s a sci-fi story about a woman named Arisia who pays for her own kidnapping to escape a bad relationship–all goes well until she wakes up on her captor’s ship and finds it completely empty, well, she thinks it’s empty.

I will be at table C21 this year, and the new comics I’ll be showing are Run Lil Jared issue 7 and the other is Mimolette Bakery issue 2.

I’ll be premiering the newest issue of my comic Trackrabbit at Mocca this year. Trackrabbit is an ongoing series of self-contained fictional narratives. Previous issues have been nominated for Ignatz and Maisie Kukoc awards. This, the fifth since the series’ inception, concerns the misadventures of a former genetic engineer who has created a quartet of pint-sized dinosaurs as pets for the residents of a home for developmentally disabled adults. Hilarity and heartwarming antics ensue as readers learn just what keeps a foot-long triceratops from being an ideal pet. The book is 40 pages, with a slik-screened cover, and retails for five dollars. Further information about it (although admittedly, not much) can be obtained from my blog.



I’m debuting a comic called I AM A RACIST (AND SO CAN YOU), which is an examination of the internalized racism of an Asian-American, and what that says about the state of racism in America today. It’ll be on sale for $2.
