Responses to Marvel Action Spider-Man

They've been great so far!

I'll share this review, which calls us "the first hit of the Marvel Action line"

CLICK TO: Marvel Action Spider-Man #4 @ Comiccon.com

And there are still two issues to go! Christopher Jones, Zac Atkinson and I have had a blast playing in the Marvel sandbox.

We've shown J. Jonah Jameson, The Looter, Kraven the Hunter and his twin children so far -- and you ain't seen nothin' yet!

The book isn't available digitally, so you'll have to go to your friendly neighborhood comic shop to pick it up. If, like me, you don't have one, check out online merchants, such as the DCBS!

Or -- you could click here to preorder the collected edition!

Either way, I hope you give it a look -- and let us know what you think!

Guess Who Has A PATREON?

It was me, all along!

As of today, my Patreon is up and running. It's a platform wherein you, my friends and fans, can help support the work I do in between my comics deadlines.

New things. New stories. New comics.

In exchange, you can get access to content no one else gets!

A hodgepodge of a blog that could contain anything -- I started out with an unpublished 10 page silver age superhero pastiche script!

Access to prose output as well, once a month!

And anyone who signs up to the Blog or Prose tier by tomorrow... will get a free head sketch from me, sometime before 2020. (Details are on the blog, on a public post.)

I hope you'll check it out -- here's the link:

MARVEL ACTION: SPIDER-MAN

In the current DIAMOND PREVIEWS catalog for books shipping in February, you'll see a listing for IDW's Marvel Action: Spider-Man #4.

...And I'm writing it. (5 and 6, too!)

I couldn't be more excited to finally put some words in the mouth of the webslinger, and hope you'll all order a copy. (Because... I mean, I want to do more!)

Art is by the phenomenal Christopher Jones, who is drawing in a similar style to what he used for the Young Justice comic book -- so the art is gonna be worth the price of admission!

Hope you'll join us for the ride in February...

Something Savage This Way Comes

Available for order RIGHT NOW and on sale May 02 is SAVAGE TALES: VAMPIRELLA, a fun little one-shot I wrote throwing everyone's favorite space vampire against straight up barbarians in a pulp fantasy world.

The art is by Anthony Marques and J.Bone with color by Chris O'Halloran -- it's old school and I hope you'll all consider grabbing a copy for yourselves, physically or digitally.

Here's a peek at the cover at the first (uncolored) page!

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!
