Turtles and Tunes...

It's been a busy few days here in Asheville. When not working on my newest book, a hardcover guide from DK Publishing for the Batman Arkham games (more on that in a later post), I've been putting the finishing touches on my latest script for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: New Animated Adventures.


The story for this issue involves the Turtles following Master Splinter on his mysterious annual "Walkabout," and is being drawn as we speak by Chad Thomas. Look for this issue (# 16) in comic shops this October.


Also today, I received the lettered and colored files for my newest Looney Tunes issue. Titled "Stepping Out," the story features Wile E. Coyote coming to the realization that he actually exists in a comic book. Drawn by Walter Carzon, the issue (# 221) also hits stands this October.


Of course, the main event this week in the Manning household was my oldest daughter's first day of preschool. From what I can gather, she's spent her time there playing Super Kitty and developing some sort of medicine for invisible puppies. We obviously share an affinity for weighty subject matter...
