The Work I Should Be Doing

With Legends of Zita the Spacegirl a little more than two months away from it's release date, I should be working on all kinds of extras to post here, and otherwise spreading the word. And while I have been arranging for some interviews and things, mostly these days I've been immersed in writing and drawing the third Zita book. That's a good sign: that I'm enjoying the work so much that it's hard to focus on other parts of the job.

But that's not all. I've also been in touch with BAO Publishing, the Italian publisher for the Zita books. I discovered to my surprise that Zita: Ragazza dello spazio will be published this very summer. With luck I will even be able to do some signings and things here in Italy, later in the season. It's very exciting, and all the more because I had not expected it to be published here this year. Have a look at the Italian cover:

But I won't forget Legends. Look for news, art, and extras here soon. Plus, hopefully, I'll be raffling off a couple of signed-and-drawn-in copies! (so what do you guys think of that cover? It's got pink!)
