Conventions, Vampirella, and Newsletter!

Hey folks!

I've been crazily busy lately -- working on comics, such as the Ghostbusters: Crossing Over miniseries and Red Sonja ongoing, pitching in on the coming Ghostbusters World mobile game, and a few other things I can't even talk about!

Wanted to take a second to mention a few upcoming appearances and books...


  • APPEARANCE! I'll be at the MCBA's 30th annual SPRINGCON May 19-20, at the MN State Fairgrounds. Look for the Grandstand and come on by! It'll be a great time.
  • APPEARANCE! I'll be in Fort Myers, FL in June for SPACECON! Can't wait to get down to the most popular peninsula in the US of A (sorry to my Yooper pals) to hang with my geeky peeps on the Gulf Coast.
  • APPEARANCE! Since it's on the website, I figure I can announce it -- I'll be down in Atlanta for DragonCon again this year! Can't wait!
  • NEW BOOK! Savage Tales #1 is out May 9 with a new Vampirella story by me, Anthony Marques and J. Bone! Find out what happens with Vampi is dropped into a world of sword and sorcery for 20 pages...
  • NEW BOOK! Crossing Over #3 was pushed back to June 06, but our crossover continues there! The crossover has been a lot of fun to write, and it's getting crazier as we go!
Those who subscribe to my newsletter can expect a new edition soon, too -- I'm running behind because of all the stuff I mentioned at the top!

See you soon!

HAPPY NEW YEAR

As I write this, 2017 is not much longer for the world

As a year, it has brought happiness and pain, more of one than the other for some, but for most of us, an even mix of each.

My (long) recap follows the break!

Guess Who Has A Newsletter

That's right!

I'm jumping back to 1997 and starting up an email newsletter.

Why? Well.

I love social media, but sometimes the algorithms of the facebooks of the world -- or the churn of the twitters -- has obscured my missives to folks who want to know when work is coming, or where I'll be appearing... I can't tell you how many times I've heard "this miniseries is happening? When is it coming out?" after a month of promoting.

Things fall through the cracks.

I don't plan on giving up social media by any means, but I do want folks who are interested in me and my work to not miss out on stuff... and it's a busy world; missing out is easy.

Thus the list.

How often will it be coming out? That'll change on my workload. Expect it no less than once a month, and no more than once a week. I don't want to inundate anyone.

What will it include? Release dates, preorder numbers, interviews (links to some asking me questions, and me interviewing others), signing and convention appearances, and the occasional thoughts on pop culture (which is where I make my living!)

Again, I don't want to inundate anyone.


So look to this space (and all the old usual spots, too) for news on books, comics, appearances, a patreon, and more.

SPEAKING OF BOOKS...

Up for preorder right now is the Ghostbusters annual 2018! 


Art by Dan Schoening/Luis Antonio Delgado
When urban miners discover what appears to be a centuries-old, man-made chamber 600 feet below the streets of New York City, they unwittingly unleash an unnamed entity with designs on dominance... an entity that will soon answer to the name SAMHAIN. Join the original Ghostbusters in this double-sized annual that will also sow the seeds for Crossing Over!

Here's the preorder code you'll need to bring to any shop -- brick and mortar or online -- to get the right comic:

DEC170466

And please, folks, if you have a pull list or order at a comic shop, pick up your books and pay for them! These shops operate on razor-thin margins, and that can mean a LOT.





Coincidentally, you've just read my first newsletter. If you'd like to sign up for more, just put your email into the sign up form to the right!

That said, I'm off to enjoy me some Christmas. I hope everyone has the best possible new year in front of them; I'll talk to you all in January 2018!
