Table for One is Ten Years Old

" I walk into a crowded room, not a soul in sight."

It's the 10th anniversary of my first graphic novel, Table for One, which came out in February of 2004. It was my first professional comic book work and my introduction to the medium that I love. I "pitch" the book as "Dirty Harry as a Waiter."

Below is an ad I designed for it for the Previews catalog. Table for One garnered me a Russ Manning Most Promising Newcomer award nomination, an Eisner Award nomination for Talent Deserving of Wider Recognition and an endorsement by the great Alex Toth. You can order a signed copy of the book below. It's 88 pages, square-bound, black & white with gray wash, and anything that can happen does happen all in one night in an underground restaurant in Manhattan. (Also see my Table for One print)

My synopsis: It's one hell of a night in an underground restaurant in Manhattan. William Howland's boss bet against him lasting a year as a waiter under him. It's pay-up time. But on this night, Will's code to treat all as they deserve doesn't serve anyone well, and he might not even last the night. And then she walks in…

Check out what they're saying about Table for One…

In addition to the print addition, (available for order below) Table for One is now available as a digital graphic novel on ComiXology.
