SO

With a The Fault in Our Stars movie showing the world that YA flicks can make money and be legitimately good cinema, and a Paper Towns film on the way…

WHERE IS MY LOOKING FOR ALASKA MOVIE?!

So… Robyn Hood is a nerdfighter. That’s canon.
This is from ROBYN HOOD: The Ongoing Series #2, which will hit shelves 9/24. Written by me, art by Claudia Balboni, colors by Slamet Mujiono, letters by Jim Campbell.

What!

I have no idea what this is, but…canon Nerdfighter! That’s cool.

WHOA, so this post is kind of blowing up. I’m so happy that Robyn and Marian are getting out there!
For those wondering what this is, it’s a new comic book I’m writing called ROBYN HOOD. We’ve done a few volumes of it before, but this is a brand new story that I’ve modernized and set in NYC. Robyn Locksley is living in a small apartment with Marian Quin and, together, they solve supernatural crimes, go to rock shows, and might even join roller derby.
Also, as you saw, Robyn is a big Nerdfighter, and she’s also a Joss Whedon fan!

You can find the first issue in your local comic shop! The second issue comes out September 24th. It’s an ongoing series, so we put one installment out every month. If your shop doesn’t carry it, call them up and ask them to order Zenescope’s Robyn Hood ongoing series!
Or, you can order/pre-order online:

You’ll notice the covers are a bit different than the interior art, but I hope that you find you enjoy Robyn and Marian’s adventures! If you’re more curious about the series, here’s an interview I did about Robyn, feminism, drugs, cats, comics, etc:

EVERYONE…

…is reblogging my Paper Towns post. I’ve never even seen half this amount of reblogs or likes. I hope some of y’all stick around.

Check out this little thing:

I completely forgot about this article until I started brainstorming new tattoos tonight. CBR interviews me about my DFTBA and CONTINUITY tattoos a while back, and I even let them get an embarrassing picture of the razorburn on my chest from the latter, hah.
The DFTBA tattoo has literally saved my life, I guess. Annnnnd I don’t know. It makes me think a lot. It makes me reassess myself, which is good, considering how often I forgot to be awesome even after getting it punched into my skin with a needle.
So, here’s to… you know, not forgetting to be awesome.

NEWS: Thomasina’s Human Zoo (young adult graphic novel)

Hey all. Big big news. Silver Dragon Books, the all agents imprint of Zenescope Entertainment, will be digitally publishing my creator-owned comic book series, Thomasina’s Human Zoo.

Thomasina’s Human Zoo, created by me and Distillum artist Sarah Dill, will be publishing monthly from March - August 2013. After the six issues are out, it will be collected into an original graphic novel that will be solicited through Diamond Previews. I’ll post order codes when it is up in Previews, and will be linking you all to the downloading sites when each issue goes up.

Adventures in Poor Taste spoke with me about the book. Click the link for the whole interview, but here is the Thomasina bit: ”It’s about an orphan girl who lives with her grandma, aunts, and uncles. She was raised on fantasy books like Harry Potter and Narnia, so she sort of grew up with this hope that a wizard would come take her away and show her that she’s magic. That it’s all be worth something and that she’s special. We catch up with her as a teenager, and how she deals with the truth of this tragedy.

"Annnnd then her family gets turned into animals and she has to figure out what the heck is going on. It’s a poignant and silly and heartwarming tale about a girl trying to find herself in a world that keeps making less and less sense."

More info to come!
