DRAWING BLOOD! Co-created by me and Kevin Eastman!
Campaign live now, til August 31st!

AUGUST 2017: The big secret project I’ve been teasing is finally announced... DRAWING BLOOD, co-created with  Kevin Eastman, of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fame. It’s a dark-comedy look inside the comic book industry, a portrait of a famous cartoonist on the skids. Kevin is an amazing friend and collaborator and I couldn’t be luckier than to be going down this creative path with him. Check it out!

Meanwhile, issue two of BETTIE PAGE will be out sometime in mid-August, with art by Colton Worley and Craig Cermack, and a whole lot of awesome variant covers. For details, you can read about it here.

In June, I wrapped up the writing on DOC SAVAGE: THE RING OF FIRE, a four-issue comic book mini-series. Doc Savage goes looking for Amelia Earhart and gets more action than he bargained for, as the South Pacific boils over in 1938. Got some ink in the Hollywood Reporter, here. It was fun to play in Doc’s world, and I hope to get back there sometime soon.

Meanwhile, still editing THE PERSHING PROJECT documentary, and working on a television pilot/comic book series with a legendary comic book creator. This one is still top secret, but when it’s officially announced (around July 9th) I’ll get to tell you about it... stay tuned!

Available now: with my usual sidekick Dave Acosta, I contributed one page to the LOVE IS LOVE anthology, whose proceeds benefit the victims and survivors of the Orlando Pulse shooting. Pick up a copy!  The trade paperback of last year’s TWILIGHT ZONE: THE SHADOW is out, joining my five issue steampunk miniseries:  Legenderry Vampirella.
