Sabrina comes out this week.  Wednesday.  One day away.  The long road to release is almost here.  I hope you get a chance to pick it up and I hope you enjoy it. A bunch of advance reviews went online today and they were all really favorable. 

If you are at NYCC this week, I'll be doing some signings.  I won't have a table of my own, but you can catch me at the booths of my publishers: 

I'll be signing at the Archie booth 2-3pm on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

I think there may be an IDW signing(s) for me as well, but I'm not sure of days/times yet.  There's usually a signing schedule posted at the booths. 

I'll try to update my twitter when I know about signings, so follow me for more info.  Actually, I post art/sketches/works in progress and other fun stuff, so maybe just follow me anyway: twitter.com/Robert_Hack

I only have 2 other appearances this year.  A small one-day convention in Altoona Pennsylvania on November 2nd, and L.I. Who, Long Island's awesome Doctor Who convention on November 7-9th.

Thanks,

There is a 6 page preview of the new Sabrina comic I'm drawing in the newest issue of Afterlife with Archie.  It's the same preview from the CBR article a few weeks ago, but printed and nice and you can fold it or bag it or read it on the toilet or whatever you do with your comics. 

But here's the REAL reason to pick it up-- this issues is INSANE.  The brilliant Francesco Francavilla has drawn a double-page spread that will melt your brain.  I hope you've been reading Afterlife all along, but here's a perfect jumping on point if you haven't.

And if you're at SDCC this week, Archie has a convention Afterlife 1 edition with the Sabrina preview in as well. 

Thanks for putting up with my shameless shilling.

The news just broke.  As has just been reported by USA TODAY: www.usatoday.com/story/life/20…  I am the artist for a new monthly SABRINA series from Archie Comics.  A sister series(not a spin-off) to the hugely successful AFTERLIFE WITH ARCHIE. 
Hey, just a quick note thanking you all for watching my gallery, favoriting, commenting, and being so supportive.  It really means an awful lot to me.  Thank you!  Also... Big news is coming.  Probably by/at SDCC. #tease
As announced at Wondercon this weekend, a new X-Files five-issue miniseries with variant covers by me! I'll post my covers once IDW gives the OK.  Here's the press release:

MULDER & SCULLY UNCOVER THE PAST IN
THE X-FILES: YEAR ZERO
The Case That Started It All Debuts At IDW!
 
San Diego, CA (April 20, 2014) – In its first year at IDW, The X-Files Season 10 has pitted FBI special agents Mulder and Scully against monsters, cults, conspiracies, and more, and now the duo will unravel a mystery that dates back to the very beginning of “the X-Files.” The brand-new five-issue miniseries, The X-Files: Year Zero, debuts this July with an original tale suited for both X-Files diehards and mystery fans alike!
 
In the 1940s, a shadowy informant known as “Mr. Xero” directed the FBI to a number of paranormal cases that would soon be classified as “X-Files,” which were reserved for the improbable and unexplainable. When faced with an eerily similar “Mr. Zero” in the present, Agent Mulder resolves to uncover the truth about who this mystery person is and their connection to these cases.
 
The multi-talented veteran Karl Kesel (FF, Superboy) makes his debut at IDW as the writer on the series. Vic Malhotra (The X-Files: Conspiracy: The Crow) and Greg Scott (The X-Files: Season 10) will be splitting art duties with Malhotra providing the art for the 1940s sequences and Scott drawing the present day storyline. Covers will be provided by Season 10’s Carlos Valenzuela, with pulp-novel-inspired subscription variants by Robert Hack (Doctor Who) and a retailer incentive cover by Eisner Award-winner Francesco Francavilla for the first installment.
 
“The origins of the X-Files unit of the FBI were only hinted at in the TV show, and we’re proud to present the story of how the precursors of our favorite paranormal agents established the division in the late 1940s,” says editor Denton J. Tipton. “I think Bing and Millie will become fan-favorites alongside Mulder, Scully, Reyes and Doggett.”
 
“I’ve always thought the 40s would be a wonderful setting for X-Files, with the Russian red menace, atomic mutations and flying saucers all lurking in the shadows— what I like to think of as ‘UFO Noir.’” said Kesel from an undisclosed location. “Of course, iconic characters like Mulder and Scully are a joy to write, and being given the opportunity to introduce their predecessors— Bing Ellinson and Millie Ohio— well, the truth is it’s all a little unbelievable to me. But the unbelievable is what X-Files is all about, isn’t it?”
 
With an upcoming board game from IDW Games, the ongoing Season 10 series, and now this new adventure into the past, IDW is the essential stop for fans of The X-Files! Stay up to date at facebook.com/idwpublishing!
