The ALEXANDER HAMILTON OGN is out this week from Ten Speed Press by Justin Greenwood

The wait is over! Alexander Hamilton: The Graphic History of an American Founding Father is available in stores this week. 

What a wild ride it's been. Lots happened on a personal level in the course of making this book and it gives me an extra sense of pride seeing how great it looks in print.

It's probably no surprise that a book intended for historical accuracy can be a major undertaking and could have been much more difficult if it wasn't for the tireless research Jonathan did in the course of writing this book (if you want a better idea of this, take a look at the CITATIONS). We also had an awesome team to collaborate with, and it can not be overstated how important Brad, Matt and Patrick were to the project and how nicely it has turned out.

I should also say that Ten Speed has proven to be a great publisher to work with, and a big thanks goes out to Patrick Barb, Chloe Rawlins and the rest of the team for helping put together a really great looking package.  We are all really excited to have this book headed to stores and in your hands. 

Writer: Jonathan Hennessey

This book can be found at your local comic shop and book stores (Tuesday for the former and Wednesday for the latter). For more online ordering info, you can use this link.

You can also check out a bunch of the original BW art for this book available in my store HERE.

And as always, thanks for reading.

ALEXANDER HAMILTON: THE GRAPHIC HISTORY OF AN AMERICAN FOUNDING FATHER by Justin Greenwood

It’s official! News is out that I’ve been secretly working away on an ALEXANDER HAMILTON OGN with writer Jonathan Hennessey for Ten Speed Press, an imprint of Penguin/Random House Books.

After becoming a big fan of the musical, working on a book of the same subject matter has been an absolute blast and I’m finding out more about Alexander Hamilton than I ever would have guessed.

This book hits shelves in August, but you can expect to see more preview art as we get closer to release. In the meantime, check out an early look at pages below, and check out MY SITE for more info and formal solicit material. Colors by the ever talented Brad Simpson and Letters by Patrick Brosseau.

STUMPTOWN VOLUME 4 is on sale this week! by Justin Greenwood

So excited to have STUMPTOWN Volume 4 in stores on Wednesday from @onipress! This volume collects the most recent PDX coffee caper THE CASE OF A CUP OF JOE and THE CASE OF THE NIGHT THAT WOULDN’T END, our mostly silent stakeout issue.

Coffee, Crime and more than a little bit of Cunning- this one has it all.

We are very proud of this collection and glad to see it finally on shelves. This hard cover features a great round table type discussion with Greg, Ryan and myself plus lots of new process material to check out. I had an insanely good time drawing this book- Greg had me frequently laughing out loud while working on this, but somehow never let it get in the way of some very poignant, beautiful moments in these stories. Really fun (and challenging) stuff to draw.

GREG RUCKA @ruckawriter (W) • JUSTIN GREENWOOD @justingreenwood (A/CA) • RYAN HILL ( C ) • CRANK ( L )

There is a good interview HERE on @comicosit with the whole team talking about the collaboration and storytelling in this volume.

You can also find a handful of some of my favorite original art from this volume up at my site HERE.

STUMPTOWN #10 hits stands today! by Justin Greenwood

THE CASE OF THE NIGHT THAT WOULDN’T END arrives in stores today from @onipress! It’s a standalone case, a one-in-done story following Dex on a late night stakeout. 

STUMPTOWN #10 is the first time in a long while where I got to draw a complete story in one issue and also a comic that is mostly silent, both things that make for a really satisfying, fun to draw issue.

Greg (@ruckawriter) absolutely killed it with this story, putting together one of my favorite scripts to date and Ryan brought a great, moody vibe with the colors as we watch Dex struggle to figure out who is doing what with whom.

Here are the first pages that ran in the preview circulating online:
