Guys, I am literally giving my new book away for free, three pages a week. It was kind of a big deal to convince our publisher this was a good idea. You can help, by encouraging your friends to check out TEEN BOAT: THE RACE FOR BOATLANTIS over at http://teenboatcomics.com/race/

Totally addicted to this web show that goes through every single Sega Genesis/Mega Drive game in chronological order! Been watching them all while I clean up comic files. Love how balanced and thoughtful the show host is. Thanks +Matt Hawkins for the heads up!

New Teen Boat animated trailer for RACE FOR BOATLANTIS! + exclusive interview about 80's movies and edgy kids comics! http://www.pastemagazine.com/articles/2015/06/dave-roman-and-john-green-splash-down-with-teen-bo.html
Plenty of comics deal with teen angst, especially the kind that comes from radioactive spider-bites, mutant puberty or discovering that your parents are secretly super-villains. Only one comic, however, can boldly proclaim to capture the angst of being a teen and the thrill of being a boat.

The way back machine. Early +Raina Telgemeier book signing at (the sadly now closed) Rocketship comics in Brooklyn, NY. Most of these kids are probably in college by now.
