There’s No Wrong Way To Color Snow Angel


Here are some random frames from a copy of SNOW ANGEL’S COMICS CONVENTION COLORING BOOK that I left open for people to color at my table at Wizard World Portland:

Big news for fans of my 24 hour comics (in case you don’t already know, I am the World Record Holder in meeting the challenge devised by Scott McCloud, to produce an entire 24 page comic book in a single day– I have done 16 of these one-day epics so far). Plans are in the works for a second collection, titled SLEEPLESS AND OTHER STORIES: DAVID CHELSEA’S 24-HOUR COMICS, VOL. 2, to be published next year by Dark Horse (the first Dark Horse collection, EVERYBODY GETS IT WRONG! AND OTHER STORIES: DAVID CHELSEA’S 24-HOUR COMICS, VOL. 1, came out in 2013).

Still Coming In January: Snow Angel’s Comics Convention Coloring Book

I recently posted about this minicomic, which I will premiere this month at Wizard World Portland. Here’s the cover:


Not to give too much away, but this story involves Snow Angel (in her everyday guise of a little girl named Angel) and her brother Aidan bringing a Snow Angel comic book to their local comics convention. I am indebted to the very gifted Jacob Mercy for drawing the cover of this comic-within-a-comic:


Feel free to add color to this image! And see you on January 23-25!

Dream A Little Dream Of God


Let’s ring in the New Year with a musical video selection from my son Ben, a musical mashup of the Beach Boys song God Only Knows with Mama Cass Elliot’s version of Dream A Little Dream Of Me. Ben has a musical intelligence that can find common ground in two familiar songs that seem worlds apart, and I don’t think I’ll ever hear these two the same way again. Ben has taken time out of his busy schedule of preparing college application to create this video to go with his remix; I particularly like the montage of lead singer Carl Wilson growing grizzled with the years (Mama Cass did not get to grow grizzled, alas- she died only six years after recording Dream A Little Dream Of Me).

Coming In January: Snow Angel Goes To Wizard World


I will be making my first comics convention appearance of 2015, and my second annual appearance at Wizard World Portland this January 23-25. I had a fine time at Wizard World last year, and this year I’m bringing something special for the fans– a new minicomic featuring Snow Angel, in which, fittingly enough, she and her brother Aidan go to a comics convention. (In the panel below, Snow Angel is in her off-duty guise of a little girl named Angel. Her brother Aidan is in costume as Snow Angel, however, for complicated reasons. Not to worry; the real Snow Angel shows up eventually.)

Work In Progress: The Men Of SANDY & MANDY


SANDY & MANDY, the story I drew as an upcoming series for DARK HORSE PRESENTS, was designed specifically to pass The Bechdel Test, cartoonist and MacArthur Genius Grant recipient Alison Bechdel’s set of rules for determining if a story is sexist or not. To wit:

1. It has to have at least two women in it,
2. Who talk to each other,
3. About something other than a man.

Some people amend the rules to require that both women have names.
