This week, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Amazing Adventures # 4 hits stands. It's part two of "The Meeting of the Mutanimals," my flashback story with artist Chad Thomas about the origin of that other mutant team running around New York City. This issue also features a back-up tale by Sina Grace.
If you can't wait until Wednesday, you can read a preview of the comic here.

For those around the Asheville area (or those looking for an excuse to travel to an awesome town), be sure to stop by the Asheville Comic Expo this Saturday. I'll be signing at my table all day with plenty of Ninja Turtle, Batman, and Marvel books available.
And even better, the convention features special guests Steve Rude and Mike Grell this year! Click on the link for more.
Before you head to the show, why not stop by your local comic shop and pick up Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Amazing Adventures # 3? It's my first issue for the title, and the start of a two-part Mutanimals story with artist Chad Thomas. Rest assured, there's plenty of Pigeon Pete for everyone.
Click here for a free preview of the issue.
Hope to see you this weekend!

I'm happy to report that I'll once again be attending the New York Comic Convention this year. I'll be at the show from Thursday (October 8th) through Saturday (October 10th), signing copies of Batman: Arkham Universe: The Ultimate Visual Guide and my newest book out this week Marvel's The Avengers Encyclopedia.
The Avengers Encyclopedia is a comprehensive DK guide written by Matt Forbeck, Daniel Wallace, and me. Unlike other Marvel Encyclopedias or guidebooks, this massive 352 page book approaches the history of characters and teams from an Avengers perspective, detailing their first meetings with the team and their most memorable adventures with the Earth's Mightiest Heroes. It should be hitting book and comic stores this week, or you can find it on Amazon.
My official signing schedule at the DK booth (booth # 2204) is:
Thursday 10 a.m. - 11 a.m.
Friday 1 p.m. - 2 p.m.
Saturday 10 a.m. - 11 a.m.
I'll be happy to sign any book DK has for sale, or anything you lug in from home. Hope to see you at the show!

I'll be spending the day signing my new Batman book, Batman: Arkham Universe: The Ultimate Visual Guide (and whatever else they have in stock) at the Barnes and Noble in the Asheville Mall on Tunnel Road. The signing starts at 1:00 pm, and I'm told there will be plenty of freebies for Gothamites of all ages.
More info on Batman Day here and here.

Things have been a bit hectic around my desk lately as I plunge into my next book for DK Publishing, Batman Character Encyclopedia, so I haven't thought to mention the release of my last DK book, Batman: Arkham Universe: The Ultimate Visual Guide.
As a huge fan of the Arkham games, this book gave me the opportunity to dive back into the Arkhamverse, and cram everything space would allow about these awesome games into a 200-page hardcover.
It's out in bookstores now, and as I've recently discovered, I'll be signing copies at this year's New York Comic Con.
Now back to work!*
*Reading and writing comics is work, right?

You can pick up the comic at your local shop tomorrow, or buy my story digitally from the comfort of your own living room for your mobile device or computer here, or for your Kindle here.
If the above adorable five-year-old didn't sell you on the book, here's a free preview of my story that's part of a great review that compares the comic to the works of Robert Frost and Hunter S. Thompson. That's right, you can just tell people you're reading fine literature.*
*Maybe don't mention the part about the Amazon princess fighting the hulking monster guy...
