Out today? Who knows! It’s a mystery!

But yes, yes the Gravity Falls book is out today. Despite the cover that claims a couple of fictional characters wrote the book, it was in fact me and Rob Renzetti who co-authored the book! Another mystery solved!

This hardcover book is chock full of mystery, fun, puzzles, codes, and cool stuff! It’s in full color, has a pull out poster, and is perfect for hiding all of your supernatural secrets! We tried to pack it full of as many cool things as we could and I’m very happy and proud of how it turned out. If you’re a fan of Gravity Falls, you’ll love this book!

Thanks to Alex Hirsch for all his great notes, punch-ups, and for creating a great show!

Mine broder helped right a book. He better riter then me.

The Simpsons Comics recently had an issue that featured a bunch of two page stories/spreads. Shane came up with an idea for a crazy Homer power plant scene, pitched it, and got it approved by Bongo. Then we packed it full of a ton of gags and fun stuff to look at. I roughed out the illustration in Photoshop, printed it out in light blue on two 11”x17” pieces of bristol, penciled it, then inked it. Then it’s off to Bongo to be colored and lettered.

In the upper left, there are cameos of Kassandra, Shane, Charlie, and Bongo’s Creative Director: Nathan Kane! I’m also drawn in as one of the kids in Lisa’s class.

Some Gravity Falls “Sock Opera” Boards

Gravity Falls Sock Opera

Here are some boards from one of the sections I boarded in “Sock Opera.” I’m really happy with the way all of the catwalk scenes came out.

These boards are an example of a very early boarding pass. The amount of work that the board artists have to do is heavy and the time allowed to do said work is limited. So the idea is to get the story up on it’s feet and working before making it look pretty. The board revisionists, director, and design team obviously have a lot of work to do when something this rough gets turned in!

Very shocked and saddened by the passing of Stan Goldberg last night. Stan was the main artist of Archie comics for many years, drew Millie the Model comics, and worked with Stan Lee at Timely Comics and later was a colorist at Marvel. In fact, he’s the reason Spider-man is red and blue!
Through the National Cartoonists Society, I had gotten to know Stan over the past 5 years. We’d chat on the phone about what we were working on (he was still hard at work and had no plans to retire) and we’d mail each other our recent comics. He’d give me critiques on Reed Gunther and tell me his “tricks.” “If you ever draw a figure too high off the ground but you don’t want to redraw him in the correct position, just draw a box under his feet! Done!” Haha, and he wasn’t kidding.

He was always so kind to me when I’d see him at the NCS Reuben awards. Attached is a photo from the past May in San Diego. I gave a talk and Stan made a point to sit in on the talk and rouse me about how I should be more thankful. HA!
Also during the same weekend, a bunch of us went on a short USO trip to the San Diego Naval Hospital and drew for wounded soldiers. Stan and I sat next to each other on the bus and he told me about the days working in the Marvel bullpen and his theories on Betty and Veronica. “Betty’s such a sweet gal but Veronica would probably be more fun.”
Stan was so kind and passionate about comics. Drawing Archie comics for decades seems crazy to me but Stan loved it. He loved and respected the characters and talk about them as if they were his pals. I can only hope that I’ll stay as passionate as Stan was.
Kassandra and I recently went out to NYC but Stan was unable to meet up with us, since he and his wife were vacationing. I would’ve loved to see him one last time.
Thanks for everything, Stan!
