This is awesome. My book Ace-Face: The Mod With the Metal Arms has been published in France through Editions çà et là.
What’s really great about this, though, is that it’s not just a translated version of the American version; it includes a lot of new Jack & Max pages, and other extras. Even cooler, is that the book is a flip book – so one side is all the Ace-Face comics, and on the other is all the Jack & Max. I really love this!
As I think I’ve mentioned in previous posts and tweets, I’m going to be attending the Small Press Expo in Bethesda, Maryland this coming weekend, September 11th and 12th.
don’t might possibly have a table to myself some table space, but there are a few spots on the convention floor where you might find me. Look for me hanging around the AdHouse Books booth drawing pictures inside copies of my book Ace-Face, or see if you can spot me milling around nearby the table Julia Wertz, Karen Sneider, Tom Kaczynski, and Jon Lewis will be sharing. Or even, perhaps, you might see me lingering close to the Secret Acres setup.
Speaking of Secret Acres, they ought to have all five issues of my Troop 142 mini-comics for sale. I am bringing plenty of copies down, so they should definitely be stocked. Keep an eye out for issue #5, as it’s brand new, and if SPX still had the Outstanding Debut Ignatz category, I definitely would have entered it.
And speaking of the Ignatz awards, don’t forget I’ve been nominated in a few categories. If you are a fan of Troop 142, and will be at the show, please consider casting a vote for me.
Hope to see you there!!
Better late than never, here’s the picture I drew to submit to the Objet d’Afro art contest that AdHouse is running in support of the fantastic new book, Afrodisiac by Jim Rugg and Brian Maruca.
I loved that Nixon was a villain in the book. I’m a fan of trivia having to do with modern American Presidents, so saw this as a perfect opportunity to make a very timely Spiro Agnew reference – everybody’s favorite disgraced Vice-President!
The exciting conclusion to Chapter 2 has been posted here.

JACK & MAX will be going on a short 2 week hiatus after this, as I’ve got some other comics obligations I need to get focused on.
Reminders: I will be at the big TCAF show in Toronto this coming weekend. I am really looking forward to finally going, as I’ve never been, and I’ve always heard great things. I’ll be sharing a table with MOME contributor Tom Kaczynski – so come by and say hello.
Also, my new book from AdHouse, ACE-FACE: THE MOD WITH THE METAL ARMS, will be arriving in finer comics stores across the nation tomorrow. It’s a collection of stories, mostly featuring the titular hero, but also included are two, count ‘em two, Jack & Max shorts: “Max!! Get out of my room!” and “Max!! Get off of my side!”. Please check it out.
I think one of my favorite things about being a cartoonist is the day that the final printed comic shows up. Whether it’s published by Quebecor or xeroxed at Kinkos, I enjoy it either way. So, I was psyched last night to get home and see a copy of my new book Ace-Face: The Mod With the Metal Arms waiting for me.
This ought to be in finer comics shops next week, and I believe is probably available on amazon.com right now.
Robin McConnell interviewed me this past week for his excellent comics-related radio show, Inkstuds. We talk about my books Ace-Face and Freddie & Me, as well as my ongoing webcomic, Jack & Max Escape From the End of Time, among other things.
Unfortunately the last minute and a half of our chat got scrambled, so had to be cut from the online audio. This results in the conversation ending kind of abruptly, just as I started on some weird rant about my disgust at my former college-age self for being such Politically Correct drip instead of going out and partying for four years. Maybe it’s for the best that the majority of this screed has been lost to the ages…
Things keep moving along with two new pages posted here.

Apologies for the small update, but last week was killer, with Passover, Easter, and an unfortunate bout of food poisoning (I do not recommend the “Potage” soup from the Red Hook Fairway!).
In more pleasant news, I was happy to see this morning the first review (brief as it is) of Ace-Face, over on the Inkstuds blog. As mentioned in the review, Robin will be interviewing me later today, though the audio won’t be going online for a few weeks. Rest assured, I will link to that audio once it goes live.
I have a new book coming out from AdHouse in April, entitled “Ace-Face: The Mod With the Metal Arms“. It’s a 96-page collection of short stories, mostly featuring the titular character Ace-Face, everybody’s favorite well-dressed crime fighter, doling out super-powered justice with his bionic limbs, and handling crisis’s at home as a husband and father.
Here are links to a few interviews with me, discussing the book:
The Pulse: Dawson’s Mod of Steel, ACE-FACE
Newsarama: Going Inside Ace Face with Mike Dawson
Comic Book Resources: Talking Comics With Tim
Comixology podcast – recorded at the New York Comicon
And some pages from the book can be seen at Publisher’s Weekly.
