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.

Batman: Arkham Universe...

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?

Sensation Comics # 12...

Modeled by the lovely Wonder Girl (aka Lilly).
Out this week is Sensation Comics Featuring Wonder Woman # 12, which features a Batman/Wonder Woman story I wrote. My story was illustrated by Georges Jeanty with inks my Karl Story and Dexter Vines, and gives a little insight into how the Amazing Amazon blows off steam. The issue also includes a Wonder Woman/Poison Ivy team-up by writer Derek Fridolfs and artist Tom Fowler.

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...

See you in San Diego...

Comic-Con International in San Diego is quickly approaching, and I'll be there this year, signing some of my newest projects for DK Publishing.

As of now, here's my schedule for the show:

Thursday, July 9th:  10am-12pm at the DK Pop Culture booth (# 1028)
                                    4-5pm at the Mysterious Galaxy booth (# 1515)

Friday, July 10th:       1-3pm at the DK Pop Culture booth (# 1028)

We'll be promoting my newest books Batman: Arkham Universe: The Ultimate Visual Guide and Marvel's The Avengers Encyclopedia, as well as last year's Batman: A Visual History. But as always, I'll be more than happy to sign any comics or books you bring in from home.

See you at the show! And for those that can't make it, keeping checking back to this site, as I'll be sure to post more info on those two new books soon.

Turtles, Dragons, and Squirrel-like things...

Out this week is Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: New Animated Adventures # 24, my latest outing into the mutant-filled sewers. It features part two of "Favorite Haunt," as well as a back-up story featuring the Ninja Turtles versus the Purple Dragons. I scripted both tales in this issue, and Chad Thomas drew the first story, while Marcelo Ferreira handled the art chores on the back-up feature.

This will be my final issue for New Animated Adventures, but that's only because the title is ending. After a brief hiatus, the book is returning as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Amazing Adventures, and I'll be along for the ride. You can check out the first issue solicit for that series here, and the variant cover for issue # 24 below.
