I've written an article on Neal Adams' Batman for Fanscene's 50th Anniversary Celebration of 50 Years of Comic Fandom in Ireland and the UK! Yeah, what's a Yank like yers trooly doing in there? They (Steve Poulacheris and publisher/editor David Hathaway-Price) asked me! Do you think I'd say "no" to getting to be part of a publication with articles by Alan Moore, Dave Gibbons, and dozens of titans of fandom? I'll update this post when the e-zine is posted (I understand it'll be available as a pdf as well). It's actually due to be released sometime tomorrow, so I'll updated as quickly as I can. Here's the cover and a teaser image from my article (which, as you can see, starts on page 501)!
Yeah, I know you know I write about comics, but you're here to read about the comics I write, right? Okay, how about a sneak peek of "High Moon" from the soon to be released The Creeps #13?
I have more Unbeatable Brick news! Seems a few exceptional artists have taken a shine to our pliable pal, so I'm in the process of writing three more Unbeatable Brick eight pagers (which will bring us up to a total of six UB stories--and counting). A self-contained smash-em-up, "The Madness of Polarr!" to be illustrated by Josh Holley (here's Josh's take on UB and Polarr)...
And JW Erwin is doing a two-parter featuring giant robots, the evil of the Iron Baron, and his secret evil society, SPEER, and introducing ElecTrish--who's really gonna shock ya (and UB, too)!
Unbeatable Brick is poised to take over the world--and hardly anyone knows it yet! In fact, Surprising Comics publisher Mark Davis is toying with giving UB his own regular mag. Stay tuned!
Meantime, Russ Martin is still producing jaw-dropping art for our upcoming Ash-Aman mini-series planned for next year. Just dig this cover...
Joe Koziarski is knocking me out with his Guns & Rosa pages (for Charlton Neo)...
Aaaand, Will Lill publisher Warren Montgomery is releasing the third Monty's World tpb in February, which will reprint the first FIVE ISSUES of Fun Adventure Comics! That means all the Midnight Stranger stories, Kragor, Alex Miracle, Black Rose, and "Snake Eyes" (plus all the cool stuff from the other FAC! writers and artists) in one gi-normous book! You can pre-order it right now from Amazon, Books-A-Million, Barnes & Noble, and more!
And yep, "King of the Hill" is on the way from Charlton Neo (editor Mort Todd is lettering it now); Joe Graves' two-part Unbeatable Brick tale (featuring the villainy of the Deadly Duo) is coming soon (part one is about ready to be lettered, part two is being laid out), Fantastic Giants by me, Steven Butler, and Mort Todd is still in the works, and I have more Kragor stories that need artists!
There's also a possibility that my "creature of the night" super-hero Night Spider (formerly Black Spider) just might be swinging your way in 2018!
Stay safe--and stay tuned!
