I think you’re on the wrong side of history on this one.
Hello People Of Earth,
Publishing is a long game. Artists need lead time to do great work, and it can lead to some flukes on the calendar. Basically, this entire autumn, and especially October is one giant fluke for me. I’ve been hard at work most of this year writing comics and a video game (more on that later) but now a lot of material is ready to start rolling off the printer, and I’m asking for my fans to pre-order the comics.
Nova is ongoing and I think the issues we have rolling out of Original Sin are our best work. Please check out this comic If you’ve not been reading it. The cover for 22 is above, and I can’t say much about 23 or 24 yet, but they’re going to be the biggest issues of the series to date.
Deadpool continues as well with the return of Mike Hawthorne, this time with Terry Pallot inking him. Almost anything I can show you from Deadpool is a spoiler, but we’re building off our Original Sin arc, and as you know we have a new character joining the Deadpool family…pre-order it!
Death Of Wolverine: Deadpool & Captain America is a 30 page special, and some of my favorite Deadpool material in a long time. If you’ve been reading and enjoying our run, it’s also a spiritual epilogue to The Good, The Bad & The Ugly. It’s out in October but it can be pre-ordered with your retailer. Diamond code: AUG140753
I had been talking for a while with Mark Doyle, an excellent comic book editor about finding the right comic to collaborate on. Mark became the editor of Batman, and I’m grateful for the chance to write Batman during the character’s 75th anniversary. In August I was lucky enough to collaborate with Scott Snyder on Batman 34, with art by Matteo Scalera and Lee Loughridge. It was a dream come true, and it’s on stands August 13th. It’s worth it for Matteo and Lee Loughridge’s work. That stand alone issue has some connective tissue to a series called “Arkham Manor” which will debut right before Halloween. Something unexpected happens and Gotham turns to an old house on a hill to contain the city’s most dangerous lunatics. Check out issue one, it’s my love letter to “eminent domain”. It’s worth it to see what Shawn Crystal and Dave McCaig are up to. They’re going to be your new favorite team. The diamond order code for Arkham Manor # 1 is AUG140199 Please check out this new series which will be introducing new characters while also re-introducing you to a few old ones.
My run on Hulk begins next week too. Doc Green is the new intelligent, unpredictable and scary Hulk persona, and I’ve had a lot of fun writing what is essentially a science and war story in the Hulk family of comics. The scripts for 9 and 10 are simply bananas and Mark Bagley has been turning in stunning pages. Here’s a preview from issue 5. It has a neat cover by some up and comer named Alex Ross. I can’t stress to you enough how big and fun this comic is going to be. I just turned in the script for 10, the last chapter of the first trade of The Omega Hulk, and I think Hulk fans will be happy with the amount of smashing, I think I’m happiest to see some very emotional pages from Bags. Here’s a recent interview, too.
Hawkeye VS Deadpool VS Crime arrives in September and continues monthly. It’s a blast. Matteo Lolli has just been amazing to work with. And how about those James Harren covers? Here’s a preview! It’s an action-comedy that is such a blast to be working on. I can promise you that Halloween fun will be had. Mistakes will be made, corrected, and justice will be served.
Last, but certainly not least is the X-Box One game Sunset Overdrive which arrives on October 28th from Insomniac Games. They crafted a hell of a fun ride that I was privileged to be a small part of. I wrote some of the dialogue you might here as you traverse through a brightly colored fun apocalypse. It’s nothing at all like the slow-motion, economic and environmental apocalypse we’re currently drifting through. This one is fun. Check out the hyperlink that opens this paragraph. If you don’t have an X-Box One, it’s finally time to rectify that.
Final thought: From the bottom of my heart, thank you all for allowing me the great privilege of writing what I love for a living. Now get out there, and pre-order all this stuff.
