Happy to announce that I’ll be signing comics in the Zenescope booth at Wondercon this Saturday from 2-3pm. Here’s an in progress panel from Helsing #1 that’ll be available at the show.

I wish I could be there, but if you are at Wondercon, please find Tony Brescini for me! He’s the man. I mean, damn, come on. Comic book art does not get better than what he’s doing in Helsing, period.

ROBYN HOOD: LEGEND #3

This is such a Gisbourne issue. It felt strange that Robyn’s role in this was more of a background one, as her POV has been ours since issue #1 of the first series. Gisbourne needed his time to shine, though, and this one sheds much needed light on him… as well as some on Avella and Marian.

This issue will be out next month!

I finally got to read Eric M. Esquivel’s new series, Loki: Ragnarok and Roll. I’ve been a fan of Eric since his punk ass tweeted at me about wanting to write Godstorm for Zenescope. I especially dug his Freelancers book from Boom Studios (the same folks putting out this series), and that’s what made me set him up with the Zenescope gigs he’s currently rocking out with.
Eric is a smart, weird, perversely well-read writer whose work is packed and stacked like a stoner’s dream pizza, but instead of, like, sausage and bacon and different forms of cheese and shit, there’s meaning, character, depth, and balls-to-the-wall crazy. I love it. Read this comic so that he can make more of it.

Hell-aciously busy with work, but I really wanted to draw this comic.

Perfect.

ASCENSION #2

Hey all. I wish I had time to keep up with the writer commentaries I was doing last year, but with the amount of titles I’m writing, my editorial duties, and my other job, I’m barely finding the time to blog here at all.

I did, however, want to issue a blanket trigger warning for ASCENSION #2, which came out today. The issue features a would-be school shooting and, later, one instance of attempted suicide and another of fairly extreme violence. When writing these kinds of scenes, figuring out the best and most honest way to tell the story, I always strive to be respectful while also being true to the idea. I think ASCENSION #2 does that, and I hope you do, too. I do, however, know how devastating even reading about this kind of thing can be, so I did want to give a bit of a warning before moving on with it. (SPOILERS: the shooter does not get more than two yards past the doors before he is dealt with),

That said, this issue is of great personal importance to me. If the impact of reading it has a fraction of the power than writing it did on me, I’ve done my job.

There’s not much I can show without spoilers, but here are a few panels. It’s truly one of the highlights of my career thus far, so I can’t help but show a little.
