I mentioned it before – and now you can have it!!

The COMIC BOOK LEGAL DEFENSE FUND is a fantastic resource defending the free speech and livelihood of many a comic creator and cartoonist.  And I’m honored and delighted to have been asked to contribute to this year’s LIBERTY ANNUAL (#5)!!

It’s a collection of short pieces by amazing creators like Robert Kirkman & Charlie Adlard (Walking Dead!), Johnathan Hickman (Fantastic Four, Manhattan Projects), Kieron Gillen (Uncanny X-Men, Phonogram), Joe Keatinge (Glory), Andy Diggle (The Losers), Ben Templesmith (30 Days of Night), and TONS more wonderous pros!!

CBR has a kind review of the book in general, and my story with Takeshi Miyazawa  in particular! Check it: http://www.comicbookresources.com/?page=user_review&id=5329

The book should be available at your local comic shop, or you can buy it digitally through Comixology!  Proceeds go to the Legal Defense Fund!

 

Also: I don’t say this enough – but a big shout-out and thanks should go to Crank! who kindly donated his awesome skills as a letterer.  I’ve worked with Crank on everything independent so far, and he’s really a tremendous professional and collaborator! You can follow him on Twitter, too.

ANNOUNCED!  I’ll be writing the second arc of THIEF Of THIEVES for Image Comics & Skybound Entertainment starting with issue #8 in September!

In fact, you can read the initial announcement in The Hollywood Reporter with some great quotes & info about the series.

The book is the latest smart, surprising, and utterly cool comic from Robert Kirkman (creator/writer of Walking DeadInvincible among others).  He created the world, characters, and story – and he’s co-plotting the series with a few of us rotating writers.

The current arc (available digitally or in your local comic shop) was written with Nick Spencer (creator of the hit comic Morning Glories).  I can tell you that it’s working up to a truly classic (and for me – narratively rich) finale through issues #6 & 7.  If you haven’t been reading it – you really should catch up or get the trade in September.  I also have to mention that Shawn Martinbrough is doing art for every issue of the book and absolutely delivers a cinematic cool that brings the characters and the danger to life.

I was surprised and thrilled to be asked to work on the book around the end of last year.  And one of my favorite days of my career so far was the January day spent with Kirkman and another fantastic and well-respected creator-to-be-announced-later brainstorming and fleshing out concepts and story arcs through the next three arcs of the book.  It really was like the TV writer’s room approach that Kirkman had envisioned for the series.  And it was a blast.

Both because of that brain-trust approach and the more grounded, realistic nature of Thief of Thieves – this book is going to be unlike anything I’ve written in comics.  And I am so excited for it to come out!  There’s still plenty of my instincts in the book – but I’ve been excited and inspired by both what Kirkman & Spencer have already done with the book and the concepts flying around our writer’s room.

I couldn’t be happier about getting a chance to work with Image Comics and such phenomenal collaborators.  I hope you’ll dig it, too.
