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A hodgepodge of a blog that could contain anything -- I started out with an unpublished 10 page silver age superhero pastiche script!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

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...

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.


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:


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!


EDIT -- For those looking at this on a mobile version of the site, the newsletter signup is at this link: SIGN UP FOR ERIK'S NEWSLETTER!

It's a Blog! Con announcement, Star Wars, and a happy holiday to you all!

  • First up!It's not my first appearance of the year chronologically, but it's the first one to be announced!

    In June, I'll be down in the gulf coast of the Sunshine State -- Fort Myers, Florida -- for Space Con! Should be a fun time for geeks of all stripes. Here's where you can dig up some info on that:

  • Second off, some non-spoilery talk about Star Wars: The Last Jedi.Holy cow.

    I haven't seen so much fan divisiveness (of a critically praised movie) in a loooooong time. There's plenty to unpack with that, but in all honesty... I loved it.

    I loved that it wasn't quite the A-B-C of a hero's journey. I loved that it didn't give is all the same things, simply packaged in a different way.

    And I loved the voice Rian Johnson brought to it. I loved the humor, and I loved (this could be me being an Indiana Jones fan over and above a Star Wars fan) that there was so much more about how the characters -- hero and villain -- coped with failures. 

    Some of these failures were big, some small (not limited to death, indignity, misunderstandings, insults, failure to act on an impulse, and perhaps largest of all, for many of the characters, failure to be what you expect of yourself.)

    That resonated with me. In fact, I can't overstate how much I connect with that.

    I do expect enough was left vague for JJ Abrams to pivot the story back to grand high mythology, but if I'm being honest, this is a Star Wars movie I connected to in ways I didn't expect. I know Mark Hamill was disappointed in Luke's storyline. I know fans are mad because it didn't follow the feel of TFA.

    And without a doubt, I would've done things differently.

    But -- even with the longer running time -- I loved this flick.
  • Okay, last but not least...
    It's the end of the year, and 2017 has been one tough cookie in so many, so VERY many ways. Political incompetence and infighting, natural disasters, conspiracies, illness, and darkness in the human spirit on display.

    I'm kind of cynical, but I still believe there is better coming, and that's because I fundamentally believe, despite my grousing, that there is better in us.

    So here at the end of 2017, I want to wish all of you a 2018 that is so great, we're not ready for it to be over twelve months from now. I wish you health and happiness. I hope to see some of you at conventions or signings or elsewhere, and to laugh about the good we've seen recently.

    And of course, I hope my work will continue to entertain some of you when the good is otherwise hard to spot.

    Thanks for being here, there, and everywhere.

    And Happy Holidays!
