My latest comic book TROLLS, an insider's look at the slackers working America's air traffic control towers, is off to a fast start -- my fastest-selling comic book in a decade.

Hence, TROLLS: OPERATION GREAT WALL, hits stores next year. 

The storyline is somewhat under wraps beyond what you see on the cover - Edward and Wayward wind up commandeering a commercial airline on a very important mission into China - but rest assured this sequel (like all great sequels, including "The Godfather Part II," "The Empire Strikes Back," "Superman II," "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" and "Death Wish II") does not merely rehash the first one but advances the story and takes it to new places (okay, maybe not "Death Wish II").

TROLLS: OPERATION GREAT WALL is going to be as anarchic as the original and trust me, I won't be invited back to Dandong anytime soon!

GO, GENIUS, GO! full-color TPB drops AUGUST 2016!

The cover of the GO, GENIUS, GO! TPB - drawn & colored by Michael Aushenker
Here's the cover -- drawn and colored by Michael Aushenker -- of the 80-page, full-color trade paperback of GO, GENIUS, GO!

A workplace romantic comedy set in the tech world in beautiful but sterile Irvine, Calif., GO, GENIUS, GO! tells the story of DERRICK HILLER, an underachieving, unemployed writer living with his two cats in a rented-out guest house on a gated senior citizens community. Desperate to get a job, he relies on the expertise of his old landlord DEAN and Dean's neighbor, BREEZY, to fake his way into a writer's position at INTERGY, a fast-paced content farm startup.
However, complications and laughs ensue when his predatory, insatiable supervisor SEDONA decides to make Derrick her in-house prey.

COMING AUGUST 2016! The complete, three-part story collected. Written by Michael Aushenker, art by Marcus Collar & Michael Aushenker, coloring by Melissa Compton.

Debuting at STOCKTONCON 2016 in Stockton, Calif.
