I'm a little behind on my blog postings these days as I'm busy working on a secret mini-series and a few other projects I can't really spill the beans about yet. In fact, I just realized today that I had neglected to write about Wonder Woman: Amazon. Hero. Icon., a new hardcover book I worked on for Universe Publishing.
A book mostly devoted to showcasing Wonder Woman's diverse cover art over the years, Amazon. Hero. Icon. is written primarily by Bob Greenberger and is designed by my old college buddy Chris McDonnell. For one reason or another, the publisher wasn't satisfied with the book's first chapter, and so that's where I came in. DC contacted me, maybe due to my fascination with the eccentric life of Wonder Woman creator William Moultan Marston, and I whipped up a new version of the first chapter for them telling Marston's life story.
So if you're a Wonder Woman fan, be sure to check out this book. It's great addition to anyone's Amazon collection.
And keep checking back here. I'll have more hints about my upcoming projects in the near future...

Recently I was informed by a fan (okay, it was my mom - but she's still a fan...) that my two new young reader books are available in books stores now. The first, Superman: Little Green Men, is a tale of the Man of Steel desperately trying to find a moment's peace. The second, Batman: Two-Face's Double Take, is a story of Harvey Dent's obsession with duality and his old friend Bruce Wayne. Superman is illustrated by Erik Doescher, Mike DeCarlo and Lee Loughridge, while my old Arm-Fall-Off Boy partner in crime, Shawn McManus, drew the Two-Face yarn, again with the able coloring of Mr. Loughridge. Both tales are set firmly in Bruce Timm's animated universe, and each book is available in hardcover or softcover, depending on your preference and/or wallet constrictions. Visit my Amazon page to learn more.
Speaking of Arm-Fall-Off Boy, The Legion Omnicon blog just did a nice piece on his history, in honor of April Fool's Day. You can check that out here.
And while I'm at it, why not pre-order my next Stone Arch Batman book, Batman: Scarecrow, The Doctor of Fear on Amazon. Keep checking back, as I should have the cover art to display soon.
