His schedule for NYCC is as follows

 4-5 pm Vertigo Panel

6-7 pm Signing with Gilbert Hernandez, DC Booth

8-10 pm Signing with Gilbert Hernandez, St. Marks Comics

He does not have a table in artist alley and is not sketching or taking commissions. If additional signings are added or he shares space with someone I will update as soon as I know.

Our next confirmed show is The Lakes Comic Art Festival October 16-18 in Kendal, England with a huge group of Canadians (thanks TCAF!). From there we are heading to Gosh! in London for a signing and talk Wednesday October 21. This is our first trip to the UK and we are both pretty excited.

Next week is a big one with both The Twilight Children debut AND Graphic Ink - The Art of Darwyn Cooke in stores. Both should be available at finer comic stores everywhere.

See you soon,

Twilight Children by Gilbert Hernandez and Darwyn coming this October

A new mini-series written by Gilbert Hernandez and illustrated by Darwyn has been announced at the San Diego Comic-con according to comic book resources.

Entertainment Weekly was able to get some info on the series from Gilbert here.

new action figures designed by Darwyn

HitFix Harpy has an exclusive look at the all-new Lee Bermejo and Darwyn Cooke action figure lines that are on display at the DC booth on the Comic-Con show floor. 

To quote HitFix:
"Each figure is inspired by the intricate art styles of their respective artist and the art design is taken straight from the pages of DC’s comics. 
Each of the Darwyn Cooke action figures have 11 points of articulation while the Lee Bermejo models come with 21 points of articulation (save for Lex Luthor, who only has 15.) All of them are made from high quality PVC and are priced at an MSRP of $25 a piece."
Batman! Adam Strange! Harley Quinn! and a terrific Supergirl that includes Krypto and Streaky!

and it looks like they are scheduled to arrive in stores in June of 2016  according to this photo on instagram
