Dustin Harbin on DHARBIN

In the last year, Dustin Harbin has earned acclaim for hand-lettering every issue of the reissue of Matt Fraction’s creator-owned series Casanova, which he’ll continue into the new series. But he’s also been doing a variety of hilarious and insightful comic of his own, chronicled on his daily site www.dharbin.com.

Harbin was previously known among comic fans and pros for his work at the comic shop Heroes Aren’t Hard to Find in Charlotte, NC – and for helping organize each year’s Heroes Con, which is coming up June 3-5.
