Out TODAY: Back to the Future: Citizen Brown TPB!

Out today in comic shops everywhere (and coming on 01/17 to book stores and Amazon -- it's CITIZEN BROWN!

Loosely adapting the Telltale Games video game, Citizen Brown sends Doc Brown and Marty McFly into the 1930s, two alternate versions of 1986, and even -- briefly -- the old west!

The Browns, the McFlys, and all of Hill Valley are at risk!

Adapted by Bob Gale, Erik Burnham (hey, that's me!), Alan Robinson, and Maria Santaolalla!

Head out to your friendly neighborhood comic shop for a copy today -- though if you don't happen to have one, you can click here to pre-order Back To The Future: Citizen Brown from Amazon!

New Stuff In March!

March 2017 will see a few new things from me -- first, there's a cover collaboration I did with my pal, Sheriff of Babylon artist MITCH GERADS.

For the final issue of DC Comics' Vigilante: Southland, we did an homage to the early-1980s Vigilante's first issue cover!

I don't want to overstate my contribution -- Mitch drew and colored the Vigilante figure you see in the fore, the focus of the cover. I wrote and built the newspaper that forms the background.

(It was nice to get to work with Mitch, even in such a small way!)

And then there's Ghostbusters 101, a six-issue miniseries that will feature the original GHOSTBUSTERS meeting the Answer The Call cast, of the 2016 movie.

There's a lot of hubbub around this; some folks are really excited to see the characters meet. some not.

Whether you were a fan of the recent film or not, I hope -- if you're a fan of our comics -- you'll give it a look. I can guarantee the same approach from Dan, Luis, Tom and myself that you've enjoyed in the past.

Postcards from the E


I filled up all of the postcards I had handy and sent them out. Thanks everyone!

There's been a lot of stress in 2016, from 01/01 straight down the line. I don't need to tell you; you were there. There's been a lot of crazy from all corners of the world.

I can't fix that; not fear, or dissatisfaction.

I can only spread little bits of joy. That's what's in my power.

(I admit to you that that may not be much -- but, if I can provide a few seconds' smile, I'm gonna do just that.)

So, then! I have a small box of blank postcards. Couple dozen, maybe more. They're gonna get sketched on and sent out to whoever asks.

Send me an address (and, if you like, a fictional character you'd like a sketch of -- otherwise I'll just totally improvise) and I'll send you a postcard, up until I run out. For free.

That's it. That's all there is to it.

If you'd like one (and just one!) please email me at:

erikburnham (at) mail (dot) com

Needless to say (though I will anyway) your address is safe with me and will be deleted as soon as I jot it on the postcard.

Let's rev towards optimism -- and hey, if you do get a card, pay the joy or kindness forward a little, if you can! That's what we need right now!

About Tobin's Spirit Guide and About NYCC

The bad news is I won't be attending NYCC this year as I'd hoped. (I wasn't tabling - I was just going to wander, as I do during SDCC... but things just didn't come together.)

This is my second attempt to get to NYC this year; both fell through. That's the universe for you! One day I'll revisit that city.

In better news -- Tobin's Spirit Guide. Some of you have noticed it's currently down/only available from 3rd party vendors on Amazon. WELL! That's because the first run has sold out. It's going back to press! MORE COMING SOON!

Thank you to you amazing Ghostheads for the success of the book, and for those who haven't gotten one yet, more coming soon!!
