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.

Chris Wilkinson, who just may be the biggest ROBYN HOOD fan on the planet, printed out a picture of my face and made a mask of it.

AND MADE A MASK OUT OF IT

I should probably call the police after I’m done laughing about this.

I actually-in-real-life got to write this into Wonderland #19.
