Gotham City's Guardian...

I'm happy to announce that my book for Scholastic, Batman: Gotham City's Guardian was released a few weeks ago to bookstores nationwide. It's my first book for this particular publisher, and it was a fun little project that gave me yet another excuse to dive into my Batman comic book collection.

Set entirely in the current DC continuity established in the New 52, this book is the perfect entry point for readers new to Gotham City, featuring Batman's origin, a glimpse at his many gadgets and vehicles, and the stories behind some of the most notorious faces in his rogues gallery.

Check out a few sample pages below, and be sure to stop by next week when I talk about yet another new Batman book to hit the shelves, my Batman Character Encyclopedia from DK Publishing.

Batman and Scooby-Doo...

Two of my newest projects are hitting stores this coming week. First up is the Batman: Talking Bust and Illustrated Book set. This is a fun little history of Batman I wrote that comes complete with a mini talking bust of Batman guaranteed to scare evil-doers away from even the fanciest book shelf. It hits book stores on the February 9th and comic shops on the 10th.

Next up is my first You Choose book, Scooby-Doo! The Mystery of the Mayhem Mansion. Originally scheduled for the 1st of March, this book seems to be hitting stores and Amazon already. It features a Mystery, Inc. story told in the famous "Choose Your Own Adventure" style with 12 possible endings (some of them even pleasant).

For everyone's safety, don't follow the mystery waiter. Just listen to me this one time.

I'll be back with a new post soon, including some info on my first book for Scholastic, Batman: Gotham City's Guardian...

Experience the Wonder...

I've been a little bogged down with a few new projects (like the upcoming Batman Character Encyclopedia for DK Publishing), so I've neglected to mention my newest book on the shelves, The World According to Wonder Woman.

Illustrated by Paul Bulman, this book follows the same format as my previous books for Insight Editions, The World According to Wolverine and The World According to the Joker, but at a slightly larger size. It's written from the perspective of Diana herself, detailing her entire New 52 history, offering Wonder Woman's advice on everything from fighting styles to being a role model for an entire generation.

You can pick up the book at your local bookshop, or by clicking here.

Another Wonder Woman book to keep an eye out for hit stores this past December in the form of Wonder Woman Tiara Bracelet and Illustrated Book, a small little gift box that contains not only a miniature replica of Wonder Woman's iconic tiara, but also a little book I wrote called the The Amazing Amazon, which details Wonder Woman's history in a handy pocket size.

And as long as we're talking everyone's favorite Amazon, be sure to order a copy of Sensation Comics Featuring Wonder Woman Vol. 3, a trade paperback collection of the recent Sensation Comics series. This particular volume features a short comic story I wrote that was illustrated by the great team of penciler Georges Jeanty, inkers Karl Story and Dexter Vines, and colorist Wendy Broome. Find it in book and comic shops this May.

Asheville Comic Expo...

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.

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.

New York Comic Con and the Avengers...

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!

Batman Day...

It's almost that time of year again. The holiday that makes all others pale in comparison. The time to celebrate the greatest comic book character of all time. This September 26th, be sure to visit your local book store or comic shop for the second annual Batman Day.

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.
