Mark your calendars...

In stores this week:

I'm really proud of this one, folks.

In this new anthology comic featuring seven tales of the Dark Knight's extensive rogues gallery, I got the chance to write a Calendar Man story that was brought to life by a very talented Kubert School find, artist Garry Brown. The story hints at the origin of everyone's favorite holiday-obsessed super villain (there's not many to choose from, after all) and brings to light his relationship with Gotham's Caped Crusader. The comic hits stores Thursday, December 2nd, so be sure to save the date, as it were.

Here's the official write-up from the DC Comics website:

Written by BRAD DESNOYER, MATT MANNING, MANDY MACMURRAY, JOHN STANISCI, PAUL TOBIN and PETER MIRIANI; Art by LEE FERGUSON, GARRY BROWN, MATT SOUTHWORTH, RYAN KELLEY and SZYMON KUDRANSKI; Cover by DUSTIN NGUYEN

Some of the most promising new talent in comics are corrupted by the most depraved villains in Gotham City in this all-new special featuring The Joker, the Riddler, Calendar Man, Scarecrow, and yes, even Humpty Dumpty! It's seven short stories, all in one giant issue! The joke's on you if you think you'll make it out of this alive!

King Con 2010...


Who says convention season is over? Not the King Con, that's for sure.

If you're around the Park Slope area of Brooklyn, New York this weekend (November 6th and 7th from 11am to 7pm), head over to the Brooklyn Lyceum on 4th Avenue (just steps away from the Union Street stop on the R line) and stop by the second annual King Con. Despite what their official website would have you believe, I will indeed have a table at the show, loaded with everything from my older Johnny DC Batman and Legion comics to the newly released DC Comics Year by Year: A Visual Chronicle. I'll also have a couple of my hardcover Stone Arch Batman and Superman kids books for you to check out, among other surprises.

Other guests for the convention include Chris Claremont, Paul Pope, Jonathan Ames, Kyle Baker, Cliff Chiang, and dozens more. There are plenty of panels scheduled, and for a measly seven bucks a day ($10 for the weekend pass), it promises to be an event worth your while.

Hope to see you all at the show.
