Yes, CHEW is coming to Comic-Con! Booth #2729

Yes indeedy, we will be at San Diego Comic Con, at Image Isle at booth #2729. We've got a table and both Rob Guillory and Ol' Layman will be parked there as often as humanly possible. Be sure and stop by and get your books signed, find out about what's coming up in future issues, see preview pages for Issues #3 and #4, and hear long boring stories about how Layman lost his leg in the war and how kids today aren't as good as when he was young, way back in the early days of the 20th Century. Rob will have some original art, and will be doing sketches and commissions. We should have issues #1 and #2 for sale, unless disamster strikes (but don't hold your breath for any very sold-out first editions-- it's possible, but don't count on it.)

Layman will also be debuting his new hardcover, Stephen Colbert's Tek Jansen, so if you can't find him at the Image Booth, he'll be signing at Oni at

Thur 1:00 – 2:00
Fri 1:00 – 2:00
Sat 4:00 – 5:00
Sun 10:00 – 11:00

And be sure to check out Layman at the Image Panel on how to pitch an indie comic (where Layman will have no advice whatsoever except "If you want a hit comic, hire Rob Guillory," followed by a litany of obscene threats and invective against anybody who actually thinks about trying to hire Rob Guillory.)

Anyway, here's information on the panel:

Seagle (Soul Kiss), and Richard Starkings (Elephantmen) for a very special, unprecedented workshop with an insider look at the creative process and tips on perfecting your pitch.

Anyway, hope to see you there! And keep an eye out for the special "booth beef" male-model we've hired to help represent CHEW. Prepare to behold the glory of "The Chew Bear," the absolute personification of handsomeness, style, and raw sexual power.

  1. Rob, issue three looks great!

    And I really like the art in the second printing of issue 1. Blew the original one away! Layman your writing seemed a copy of the first one. To bad, good try none the less.

    See you and Layman in a couple of days!
