Today is the day! The third book in the CLEOPATRA IN SPACE series, Secret of the Time Tablets, is now out wherever books are sold. Please help me in sharing the news.

Cleo 3 wraps up the first of two trilogies for the series. For those who haven’t read any of the books yet, now’s a good time to start. There will be a time jump with Book 4 which sets up a new story arc.

Here’s the cover copy:

Cleo and her friends journey from Yasiro Academy to the city of Hykosis, where some of the most notorious thieves and assassins live. They’re in search of information about the time tablets that could determine Cleo’s fate — whether she wants them to or not. But the group is separated when Xaius Octavian’s fleet attacks their ship, and Cleo and Akila are on their own until they run into an old nemesis. Will Cleo find the information she needs and get out of Hykosis alive?

Here’s a 16 page excerpt.

Here are some nice things people have said about the series thus far:

*”Maihack’s characters, both human and nonhuman, are diverse, expressive, and visually distinct.” — School Library Journal, starred review

“A delight, with its exciting layout of a futuristic Egypt complete with cool pyramid skyscrapers.” — Booklist

“Cleopatra smoothly slips into the role of confident, wisecracking, baddie-dispatching hero, and the supporting cast falls neatly into place as well.” — Publishers Weekly

“Cleo’s easygoing confidence makes her a likable… heroine, but the real star of the graphic novel is Maihack’s art. The cinematic paneling during action sequences skillfully conveys Cleo’s vivacity and flair.” — Kirkus Reviews

“Cleo is a fun, fearless heroine — I’d love to explore the galaxy with her!” — Raina Telgemeier, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Smile

The third book in the CLEOPATRA IN SPACE series, Secret of the Time Tablets, will be out this month! It is, if you’ll allow me this momentary lapse of being humble, the best book in the series yet. A lot of stuff that the webcomic was leading up to ended up within it’s pages (reworked a bit of course) plus it wraps up the first story arc of the graphic novels. Now’s a really good time to read the whole series if–for whatever crazy reason–you’ve been holding off on doing so far.

Here’s the cover copy:

Cleo and her friends journey from Yasiro Academy to the city of Hykosis, where some of the most notorious thieves and assassins live. They’re in search of information about the time tablets that could determine Cleo’s fate — whether she wants them to or not. But the group is separated when Xaius Octavian’s fleet attacks their ship, and Cleo and Akila are on their own until they run into an old nemesis. Will Cleo find the information she needs and get out of Hykosis alive?

Here’s a bunch of cats in a library I painted yesterday. If you’re a librarian headed to ALA Orlando in June, that’s where it’ll be! It’s for the silent art auction.

ART2015

A tad late on this, but my annual little compilation of some of the stuff I drew last year. Most of my time was spent working on Cleo (Book 3 for the first half, Book 4 for the second) but I still managed to sneak in a few other fun things here and there. Lots’o watercolors.

Thing to look forward from me this year: Cleopatra in Space #3! My fav in the series so far (and available for preorder). Other than that who knows what will get announced. Guess I’ll find out along with you. :)

batgirl-supergirl_comic12

On this fifth anniversary of drawing these Batgirl Supergirl Christmas comics, thought it was due time for Batgirl to finally get a win. Makes a nice cap to these strips don’t you think? I’ve said that a lot though and I keep drawing them, so probably safe to assume I’ll draw another next year.

Anyhoo, Merry Winter Holidays! May your gifts be better than unleashing a bunch of psychotic criminals on an unsuspecting city.

(Original linework for this is available on eBay)

Thought about giving Batgirl a win just this once, but, well, she doesn’t currently have her own prime time TV show. Sorry Babs!

As always, original artwork for this is available HERE.

Here’s your first look at the cover for CLEOPATRA IN SPACE #3: SECRET OF THE TIME TABLETS! It’ll be out next spring.

This is my favorite book in the series yet. A lot of what the webcomic was leading up to ended up in here plus it wraps up the first story arc of the graphic novels. Really hope a lot of people that were maybe meh on the first two books give this one a shot. At least for closure’s sake. ;)

And of course Books 1 & 2 are still available wherever books are sold.

Orion (and Oliver)

Can never truly know your kid until you draw them I always say! Here’s our new son Orion Flynn at about a week-and-a-half-days-old. And for comparison fun, Oliver Prime three (going on four) years ago.

HeroesCon 2015

One of my favorite shows of the year is nearly here. HeroesCon is this weekend! And I’ll be there residing in Indie Island once again, this time near the back (table AA-1024). Look at this useful map I made to help you find me!

heroesmap2015

Click here for the entire floor.

If you are attending, you’ll also have the chance to take home this original Batgirl/Supergirl canvas I painted for the annual art auction (held at the Westin across the street from the convention center). One of a kind! It took a while. Probably won’t do something like it again.

bgsg_painting

Also Cleo books 1 and 2! New prints! Stickers! A three-year-old! A pregnant wife! Exclamation marks!!! This might also be my last HeroesCon for a couple of years, so I really hope some of you are able to stop by.

Furiosa

Didn’t want to be the only person on the internet who hadn’t drawn Furiosa.

harry_potterhp_hermione01 hp_ron01

Better late than never! Finally drew a Ron and Hermione to go with the Harry Potter I sketched a few years ago.

If you’d like to bid on the originals for any of these, I put them up HERE. Still trying to pay off some vet bills unfortunately.

CBS Supergirl

Fan art of the new CBS Supergirl. Looks like they got the tone of the character just right.

Or snap a picture with the book if that is a thing you think might be fun to do. I am personally going to celebrate by starting colors on Book 3. :)

cleo02_fullcover

Here’s the entire wrap-around cover for the second book in the CLEOPATRA IN SPACE series, The Thief and the Sword! Really proud of this one. Was able to write/draw a ton of stuff I’ve been eager tell in Cleo’s saga for a while now–sometimes at the sake of my own sanity. The story picks up directly after the events of Target Practice:

When a mysterious thief steals the ancient sword Cleo recovered in CLEOPATRA IN SPACE, BOOK ONE: TARGET PRACTICE, Cleo is determined to get it back, but her teachers at Yasiro Academy forbid her from risking her life. Stuck at school, Cleo is having a hard time adjusting to her newfound popularity and responsibility. And when she learns more about the prophecy that names her the savior of the galaxy and the time tablets that could decide her fate, she must go on a dangerous journey to find them before they can fall into the wrong hands.

CLEOPATRA IN SPACE #2 will be out April 28th, 2015 (the end of this month!). Preorder the book and know you’ve earned a special place in my heart.

PREORDER:
Amazon
Barnes & Noble

Was given permission this week to share the illustration I drew for the Reading Rainbow calendar- an incentive from the Kickstarter they ran last year (which raised 5.5 mil!). Was a pretty fun piece to work on.

Page one of the 10 page Sensation Comics Wonder Woman story I drew with story/script by the wonderful Lauren Beukes. It is available NOW digitally! Old skool paper and stapled format drops in April.

Bye, 2014

ART2014

Started doing this a few years ago: a compiling of some of the stuff I drew–well, drew and posted–in 2014 (there’s quite a bit of stuff I drew that hasn’t been published yet). Looking at the above, 2014 consisted mostly of Batgirl, Supergirl and Cleopatra. Nothing wrong with that!

Stuff to look forward from me in 2015: Cleopatra in Space #2! Short Wonder Woman story in Sensational Comics! Maybe a pinup or two! Maybe another Batgirl/Supergirl comic!

batgirl-supergirl_comic10

I feel like every Batgirl/Supergirl comic I’ve drawn so far has lead up to this one right here.

Anyhow, Merry Christmas, everyone! I hope everyone is okay if this is the last of these for a while. 2015 is going be a busy, busy year for me.

Oh yeah- and for those interested, I put the original of this up on eBay.
