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.

The rumors and whispering in dark corners of the internet were right – GENERATION HOPE is ending in MARCH with issue #17.  {sad face emoticon}

If you’re interested to know more, I talk about it all over at ComicBookResources.

From the get-go, they asked me to write 5 issues leading up to April’s big cross-over event (Avengers vs. X-Men).  I approached the gig as a chance to wrap up the major stories of the series’ first year (while also tossing in some new elements I was interested in playing with).

This did not blindside me in the least.  We’ve talked sales numbers and the fate of the book for months, so I knew this was coming before the first issue came out in shops.  I got to tell the stories that I wanted to tell as I wanted to tell them (my editors Jordan White and Nick Lowe were AWESOME collaborators).  So I am nothing but grateful!

ANYWAY – the final two issues pack a TON of pay-off into their pages!  Not just of my issues, but for folks who have been reading the whole way through.  So I hope you’ll stay on board till the end (or grab the trade).  And page 16 of the final issue is maybe the single comic moment I’m most proud of so far. {happy face emoticon}

^ Some preview art from GENERATION HOPE #16 with pencils by Takeshi Miyazawa! It’s out mid-February with the final issue (#17) out mid-March.  And they are CRAZY-COOL comics.

THANK YOU! to all the folks who have been so kind an enthused from the moment I took over through the announcement today.  Since I’m not working in live theater anymore, it’s really nice to still hear people’s responses to this stuff and know that I’m connecting.

I’ll be back SOON with some VERY BIG non-Marvel related comics news!!!  So hang tight, cool cats. {kissy face emoticon}
