I said we’d have some more announcements as the publication for RETURN OF THE DAPPER MEN gets closer, and here’s one that I am very proud and thrilled to announce: Tim Gunn has graciously agreed to contribute by writing the foreword to the book.  He was the first name that came to mind when thinking who would be the ideal person to introduce this book to the reader before they dive into the story, and he did a marvelous job of doing that very thing.  The mood his foreword sets is perfect and I couldn’t be happier.  Janet & I would like to thank Tim for his time, involvement, and amazing contribution.  Welcome to Team Dapper, the original Dapper Man!

RETURN OF THE DAPPER MEN cover, coming in November

RETURN OF THE DAPPER MEN cover, coming in November

RETURN OF THE DAPPER MEN is leaving for the printer this week, the culmination of over a year’s worth of planning, writing, and art in one beautiful package.  Publisher’s Weekly named it one of the Graphic Novels As Gifts for this holiday season– an incredible honor- and now that gift got a little bit better.  In addition to the main story, we were lucky enough to have an incredible line-up of comic book and graphic artists join in and provide a stunning bonus pin-up gallery.  There are 12 pieces in all and every one is a jaw-dropper.  Who are they?  What do their pinups look like?  Find out after the jump for a full listing!

Continued after the jump.

HAWKEYE & MOCKINGBIRD #2 cover

HAWKEYE & MOCKINGBIRD #2 cover

A lot of (well deserved) praise has gone to the art team for HAWKEYE & MOCKINGBIRD.  (Newsarama and Comic Book Resources have since posted their reviews praising the team as well since then).  To show you the sheer work these guys go through to bring a page to life, I wanted to give you a peak behind one of my favorite pages from HAWKEYE & MOCKINGBIRD #2, on sale 7/8. Sooooo, how do David Lopez, Alvaro Lopez (not brothers, by the way), and Nathan Fairbarin do it?  Find out after the jump!
