It's been a little while, but I've got TWO NEW BOOKS headed your way this year! I'm so thrilled!

Coming in June with Scholastic, The Princess and the Pony is a picture book featuring one of the most enduring characters I have ever drawn, that roly-poly pony. Here's an interview I did about it with Wired, ages ago when I started working on it. Good for kids, good for ponies, good for pony lovers (everybody)!

Coming in September with Drawn and quarterly, Step Aside, Pops is a new comics collection in the vein of 2011's Hark! A Vagrant book! Finally! I can't believe it's been such a while. Here is an interview with the LA Times about it. Make a lil' room in that bookshelf!

I'm going to keep the preorder links up there because those sales are good for everyone! For the publishers to have confidence in me, and for a book to appear like a surprise in your mailbox in a few months. I always say I'm going to try and be a better businessperson and this time I'm really going to do it gol dang it! LINKS IT IS!

There are lots of places to order, here's a handy list of booksellers!

Amazon, for Step Aside Pops

Amazon, for Princess and the Pony

Barnes and Noble



You can also pre-order from your local comics shop, and we sure love local comic shops here at Hark A Vagrant.
