Zombie Love!

Sketch Editions of We Are Going to Eat You! En Route…

Continuing the gallery of sketches en route to their new homes, bound into the mail-orders for We Are Going to Eat You!

Some of these are simple portraits of zombie images floating in my head. Others are a bit something else—or biting something else.

More, coming up!

They Are Going to Eat You!

Sketch Editions of We Are Going to Eat You! En Route…

Amid a hectic fall work/travel schedule, I’ve continued sketching in, signing, packing, and shipping the mail-orders for We Are Going to Eat You!

At this point, just about every pre-ordered copy has been signed, sketched in, and is already out the door, but orders received subsequent to late September are still either about to ship, or just en route to their new homes. FYI, all sketches are bound into the books, but the sketch page is easily removable (without damaging your book or its binding) for framing.

Next week, I’ll post a few more of the steaming sketches on their way to hungry diners…

Thursday, Friday at ASU

SRB Speaks, Presents Dutchman & Night of the Living Dead™


I’ll be at Appalachian State University Thursday and Friday to speak and present the two classic 1960s films pictured above.

You’ll find me Thursday, Sept. 26th and Friday, the 27th, on the Appalachian State University campus. I’m a grateful visiting author & artist in the Hugelene Bostian Frank Visiting Writers Series at ASU—I’ll be talking to Craig Fischer‘s class(es), and presenting a lecture and sort-of-overview of my work methodology on Thursday afternoon at 2 PM—free and open to the public—and another public event discussing my comics and writing careers Thursday evening at 7:30 PM. I’ll be presenting both Thursday talks in the Table Rock Room; book sales and a signing will follow the 7:30 PM talk and reading. If you’re in the area, join us!

On Friday, Sept. 27th, we’ll present an amazing evening of 1960s movie madness—the Continental 1967 film version of Amiri Baraka’s play Dutchman, directed by Anthony Harvey (whose next movie was The Lion in Winter), and the George Romero/John Russo/Image Ten horror classic Night of the Living Dead™.

These two classics will be shown back-to-back with intros by me, Q&A, and discussion following—it’s all happening on Friday, Sept. 27, at 7 p.m. in Greenbriar Theater in Plemmons Student Union.

See some of you there!

Special thanks to Jim Cirronella of Zero-Day Releasing and above all Russ Streiner and his Image Ten partners for facilitating this authorized showing of Night of the Living Dead™; and to Chris Poggiali, the breakthrough assistance of Justin Bozung of MondoFilm VideoGuide, and above all Shirley Knight (Lula herself!) and Ruby Persson for facilitating the authorized showing of Dutchman.

Thank you, one and all.

Hope to see some of you at ASU this week!
