Oni Press releases the much-anticipated anthology Yo Gabba Gabba Comic Book Time on Wednesday. Based on the popular children's show, the hardcover comic features a bunch of short stories by many great people, including one by myself and Mike Allred. I got a chance to see the final product before Emerald City and it's a gorgeous book. You won't need any knowledge of the show going in, the art is so pretty, it stands alone as a cool collection of great indie creators having a silly good time.
Below is the cover and a sneak peak at the first page by Mike and myself.

Allred fans should also pick up the first trade paperback collection of his Vertigo series with Chris Roberson. iZombie, vol. 1: Dead to the World collects the first six issues of the comic. Fangoria gave the book an amazing review, in case you're not familiar.
You can also read an really good interview with Mike at CBR, in which he talks about the future of iZombie, Madman, and other things.
And while you're at it, go vote for Laura Allred as the best colorist in the Eagle Awards!
And get ready for Mike's gallery show/karaoke party at Floating World on April 7!
