Catching up with Steve

I recently did a review of the DC/Vertigo book Incognegro for Playback St. Louis. Here's my introductory paragraph:

With their new book Incognegro, writer Mat Johnson and artist Warren Pleece weave a tale that is at once thrilling in its plot twists and thought-provoking in its exploration of the racial divide in our country at the turn of the 20th century. It is an insightful look at the themes of identity and prejudice wrapped within a gripping story of murder and wrongful accusation, and it is easily one of the best graphic novels of 2008 to date.

You can read the entire review at this link.

And have I mentioned here that I'm publishing mini-comics? Both the first and second issue are now available, with a third hopefully coming in June. The first issue features a 12-page relationship drama drawn by Nick Main, and the second is a 16-page children's fable illustrated by Stephanie Richardson.

Find more info, including details on how to order your own copies of the book, at the mini-site for my mini-comic.
