So last year I was lucky enough to be asked to contribute a short story to FUBAR 2: Empire of the Rising Dead. Having been a huge fan of the first FUBAR, I was all over it. Together with artist Carl Yonder and letterer Chris Horan, we put together a 6-page short called Unit 731. I’ve mentioned it in past blog posts.
Well. Check this shit out: http://www.nytimes.com/best-sellers-books/paperback-graphic-books/list.html
That right there is a link that will take you to the January 29th edition of the New York Times bestseller list for graphic novels. See spot #6? Yeah. I am now, along with all my cohorts on the book, a New York Times bestselling author.
Pretty fuckin’ sweet, no? One of the biggest and most exciting things that’s happened to me in comics. It validates all the time and sweat that’s gone into pursuing this hobby-turned-eventual-career.
So big thanks to Carl and Chris for the story, and huge thanks to Mr. Jeff McComsey, who spearheaded FUBAR, and did all the heavy lifting to get us to this point. I’m honored, for real, to be counted among the contributors in this book.
FUBAR was created by the Small Press Commandos. The motto: “No Sleep. No Problem.” Semper fi, boys and girls.
