Oh The Places You'll Go - On Catching Up
Fuck me. It's been a crazy couple of months. Let's do the recap really quick for y'all. Superman/Batman #85 came out last month to great fan fare, with #86 out this month, and then #87 out next month, which means I'm writing the last issue of volume 1 of the series! Interview with me on that all here: http://www.comicbookresources.com/?page=article&id=32480
The reason it's the last issue? DC is relaunching their entire superhero universe, and have turned over the old House of Mystery series I, Vampire to yours truly. So, starting in September, you get me writing monthly grotesqueries with a little bit of love thrown in for fun. Interview on that here: http://www.comicbookresources.com/?page=article&id=32788
Also in September, I'm doing a one shot for Marvel featuring their brand new character The Monkey King. It's me doing my best Tarantino by way of Miike. Hope you check that out, too.
Then, in October, I'm launching a superhero ongoing series from Image Comics with artist Brent Peeples, alongside friends and collaborators Matthew Waite, Mirka Andolfo, Troy Peteri, and Rob Levin (with assists by Tony Fleecs, Kody Chamberlain and Phil Hester) called the LAST OF THE GREATS. More on that in interview form here: http://www.comicbookresources.com/?page=article&id=33156 and you can check out the fledgling website here: http://www.thelastofthegreats.com.
Also of note, TUMOR was nominated for both an EISNER and a HARVEY for Best Collected Edition, and, ECHOES was nominated for HARVEY's for Best New Series, Best Single Issue, and, blushing, Best Writer. Thank you guys so much for voting and supporting the book.
ECHOES will be out in a colletible (and beautiful) hardcover edition in August, and we're doing our best to do a limited edition for Comic-Con in a couple of weeks.
I'll get a post up soon with where and when you can find me at San Diego Comic-Con, and then, hopefully I'll be doing Baltimore Con for the Harvey's, if I can get the logistics all figured out.
And, now that I'm in a good schedule again, I'm hoping to bring back my writing columns here. In the meantime, you can check out my (slightly behind) column over on iFanboy here: http://www.ifanboy.com/content/articles/Indie_Comics__A_Call_To_Arms
Alright, more to come, thanks for sticking around!
