HORNS is out in just over a month, which means I’m on tour, which means your chance to see my adorable smiling face (pictured above) is right around the corner. My current tour schedule is below, but keep in mind that it is subject to change, and that dates may be added, removed, or shifted around. You can trust me to update this post as more information comes in. I don’t, for example, have any UK dates, but I know a brief UK tour is under discussion. So stay tuned.
On a related HORNS note, before the week is out, I’m going to put up another post, fielding some of the more common questions I’ve had about the book. If you’ve got a question for me about HORNS, ask it in the comments thread, and maybe I’ll get to it (I’m collecting questions on Twitter as well).
Now I won’t be saying too much about the plot – this will be a spoiler free Q&A – but I’m glad to address stuff about release dates, or how the book got written, or why it took so long, or whatever you might have for me. You can also ask about L&K, H-SB or 20TH CENTURY GHOSTS, as long as you can tie it into HORNS in some way. If you did have a good question, you’d actually be doing me a favor by asking it. I have to do a mini-web-video-thing about the book and I don’t have a lot of practice talking about it yet, and so this will help me get my thoughts in order.

Rob Rogers speaks at the ToonSeum about his 25 years as an editorial cartoonist in Pittsburgh and his new book, No Cartoon Left Behind.
As a editorial cartoonist for the last 25 years, Rob Rogers’ cartoons appear regularly in The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Philadelphia Inquirer, Newsweek, and USA Today, among others. His “How the Gingrich Stole Christmas” graced the cover of Newsweek’s 1994 year-end issue. He received the 1995 National Headliner Award, the 2000 Overseas Press Club Award and has won seven Golden Quill Awards. In 1999, he was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize.
In his new book, No Cartoon Left Behind, Rogers recounts his humorous path to cartooning and shares his own personal perspective on the major news stories of the past two and a half decades, covering a diverse range of topics including the Cold War, gun control, smoking, racism, the environment, 9/11 and presidential elections. It is considered as a must-have for political junkies, history buffs, cartoon fans.
