THING I’M NOT SUPPOSED TO SAY:

THING I’M NOT SUPPOSED TO SAY:

You know how Wallow’s signature weapon is The Falcon Axe?

I wrote an identification caption for him in this issue that read: “Wallow! He’s got a Falcon Axe! He’s not shy—If you’ve got a question, just Falcon Axe him!”, but the suits told me to cut it.

I’ll never write anything that good again, and I just want to die.

IT GIRL & THE ATOMICS II: THE WORLD IS FLAT

IT GIRL & THE ATOMICS II: THE WORLD IS FLAT

Jamie S. Rich’s IT GIRL AND THE ATOMICS vol II is dropping next month! I can’t recommend that book enough. It’s one of my favorite superhero joints to come out in years. Right up there with Hawkeye, Daredevil, Captain Marvel. It’s one of the modern greats. ALSO: I wrote the forward. So there’s that.

So, here’s a thing: I’ve got two books in the Diamond Previews Catalog this month!

First off is THE IN CROWD #3, the third installment, and penultimate chapter in my teenage superhero book from BDI—featuring characters from Tom Hutchison’s CRITTER, and my very own creation, BARNACLE, The Teenage Tidalwave!

The second is Avatar’s BLEEDING COOL MAGAZINE #6, in which Steven Grant (2 Guns, Punisher, Avengers, Robocop) and I interview each other about our recent work at BOOM! Studios.

The In Crowd solicitation is on page 264, and the Bleeding Cool Magazine solicitation is on page 266. Show your local comic shop, and tell ‘em to order copies of each!

Blackest Terra

Blackest Terra

BLACKEST TERRA is a character created wholly by the BLACKEST TERROR fanbase. She’s a gender-swapped incarnation of the ultraviolent champion of social justice previously seen in BLACKEST TERROR #1, THOR: UNKILLABLE THUNDER CHRIST #1, and the strip BLACKEST TERROR VS. CHICK-FIL-A.

Blackest Terra was first drawn by Mariah Wall. This awesome image comes from Christopher Eric Petersen (Grindhouse)

Blackest Terror #1 is available here: http://www.comixology.com/Moonstones-Modern-Myths-Blackest-Terror/comics-series/6862

Hey, Kids! Comics!

I illustrated a li’l Captain Marvel, Hannah Nance Partlow, Artist and Letterer inked & colored it, and Calamity Jon Morris published it on his slick “Cornered” blog. Dig it!
