It’s out. My new book “True Story”, a collection of comic strips based on real stories sent to me by readers, is available across North America today. It’s over 100 stories, including some brand-new, exclusive stories from the world of comics, literature and comedy. Who? Joey Comeau (A Softer World), Jonathan Goldstein (Wiretap), Kate Beaton (Hark, A Vagrant), Darwyn Cooke, Dustin Harbin, Faith Erin Hicks (Brain Camp), and Paul F. Tompkins!

Where can you buy it?

In Halifax: Go to Strange Adventures, pal. Best comic book shop in the world.

In Canada: Chapters/Indigo, comic book stores, and Amazon.

In the US: Amazon, Barnes & Noble (available April 28).

I’ll also be debuting the book at TCAF in Toronto, May 7-8. It’s free, it’s at the Toronto Public Library, and it’s unmissable if you live there.

In Montreal, May 5, I’ll be doing a panel and signing at 7pm at the Drawn & Quarterly Bookstore, with creators David Collier and Phillipe Girard. Come visit me!

There are more events to come, including a launch party, a gallery show with Rebecca Kraatz and so much more!

Help me get the word out, guys! Reblog, retweet, everything! I’m really proud of this book, and I think you’re going to love it. But don’t take my word for it – check these awesome quotes:

“Mike Holmes’ work finds subtlety in the epic and cosmic connections in tiny moments. You’re going to love every moment of this.” – Patton Oswalt, comedian and author of Zombie Spaceship Wasteland

“Mike Holmes is insanely talented and his work bristles with the kind of humanity and insight that is rare in comics – or in humans, for that matter.” – Tom Scharpling, host of The Best Show on WFMU and one half of comedy duo Scharpling & Wurster
