Joshua Williamson (GHOSTED) and Mike Henderson's (MASKS AND MOBSTERS) new series, NAILBITER, is already causing insomnia and nightmares industry-wide. The newly-released horror suspense series was announced at Image Expo in January and generated early comparisons to Twin Peaks and The Silence of the Lambs. It has sold out at th
Over the last year or so I've posted on my blog less and less. One of the main reasons for this is because of Tumblr. Personally I love it. Mostly its quick images and funny things I like. Not as much hardcore info. So if you want a more up to date blog to follow that's where you should head.
I recommend you get your own tumblr and follow along. It's like twitter for pictures and gifs.
Another San Diego Comic-Con has passed. I'm exhausted, but super glad I went and meet a ton of amazing people who love comics. And it was great meeting new GHOSTED fans who loved the book.
This year there was a private Walking Dead party and Weezer played. It was insane.
I've learned that in my new life I really have nothing to complain about anymore.
Don't forget that the GHOSTED #1 SDCC exclusive cover will be available at the Skybound booth all day every day... as along as supplies last.

My new series CAPTAIN MIDNIGHT will be an ongoing at DARK HORSE starting in July!
Been having such a blast working on this book, it's been hard to not talk about it. Can't wait for it to get out there. It's great to write some fun pulp hero goodness. Can't wait to start really showing you what we've been doing with the character.

Masks and Mobsters was listed as USA Today's Best of 2012 for Digital Comics.
Looking at the list of other winners... I'm in shock.Humbled to be around such amazing talent and awesome comic books.

One of the best things to happen this year has been the release of MASKS and MOBSTERS.
To celebrate and say thank you we have put together a special Holiday issue of Masks and Mobsters. It's our own take on a classic holiday story. It's one of my favorite stories of all time and I hope you appreciate our homage to it.
All of the creative team proceeds from this issue will be donated to the Red Cross. We've had a good year when others haven't and wanted to give a gift t
Masks and Mobsters 3 and 4 are available on ComiXology!
I forgot to do a blog post about Masks and Mobsters 3 and 4, so here ya go.
So far the book continues to be a hit critically and in sales. Whenever a new issues launches, not only is it in the top 99 cent books, but the rest of the issues usually jump up as well. We even got nominated for an IGN best of 2012 award! (More on that later) Mike Henderson has been doing an amazing job on the book. I'm lucky to have anot

MORE INFO ON DARK HORSE'S FCBD!
So far in 2012 I've done my fair share of random projects. I already mentioned the Lego Batman assignment. Instead of doing a bunch of individual posts for these I decided to just wrap them all up in one nice post. Hopefully this doesn't turn into a crazy long post. 2012 was easily the busiest year of my career.
It's a card game and cartoon for kids. I did a bit or work on the packaging copy. This was a rewarding gig in many ways that I hope to do more of in the futu
Deathstroke 13 and 14 are scripted by me! DC needed someone to come and... help "finish up" a few things so there you go. Honestly, I just took the job for a chance to write Hawkman. :)Issue 13 is already out, but issue 14 is due out in stores next week!
