I did an interview with the Hourly Planet web site few weeks ago, which has now been posted. It’s mostly focused on Batwoman, with some hints about Arc 2 and 3.

DC recently ran a series of interviews with the creators working on titles with supernatural and/or horror themes on the official blog, the Source. Since Batwoman is dealing with the ghostly Weeping Woman in the first arc, and we’ve often described the book as a “vigilante comic with supernatural overtones,” Jim and I were fortunate enough to be included in the interviews. You can check out Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3 by clicking the links.
The image reposted here is a quick preview of Issue 3, just before things get really weird. Click to enlarge.
My next Star Wars series will be officially announced at NYCC this week, but you can get some early information about Darth Vader & The Ghost Prison over at Newsarama, where they’ve posted an interview about the project.
The short pitch is this: “Darth Vader and The Ghost Prison tells the story of one of the earliest attempts to assassinate the Emperor, and the lengths that Darth Vader, Moff Trachta, and a young, eager lieutenant will go to in order to protect Palpatine.”
I’m really excited about the project because it’s the first time I’ve been able to write a Star Wars story from mostly a first-person perspective — the series is essentially narrated by the lieutenant, who has just graduated from the Academy and is caught up in a violent coup attempt.
Batwoman is a big part of an article at Today.Com about prominent gay characters in comics! Read it here.
Also, Entertainment Weekly’s site is currently running a preview that includes the first five pages of Batwoman #2, which will be out October 12th. Check it out at EW’s Shelf Life (or click on the direct link to the images themselves).
Only a few more weeks until the September 14th release of Batwoman #1! As part of the “New 52″ initiative, I did an interview with DC’s official blog — the Source — last week. Read it here (though I mostly just talk about Bernie Wrightson). Be sure to read Jim’s interview as well.
And below is the cover to issue #3… Click to enlarge. Enjoy!
DC’s official blog, The Source, is hosting interviews with all the creators working on the 52 titles launching this September. Today, it’s Batwoman’s turn. Check it out here!
The first issue of the five-issue Darth Vader & The Lost Command comes out tomorrow. You can find out a bit more about the series in a blog post I did for Dark Horse where I talk about my vision of Vader and address the whole issue of whether or not Vader should be able to “fail,” and in an interview over at Newsarama that gives some details on the story and what it’s been liking writing it while founding Fearless Studios. The comic should be available at Blue Moon Comics and other fine comic shops, or you can order it from Things from Another World. Hope anyone who picks up the first issue enjoys it!
For those of you interested in Batwoman news, check out Jim’s blog, where he addresses the “delay” in the release of the first issue.
Last week DC announced that I’ll be co-writing the Batwoman ongoing series with J.H. Williams III, who’ll also be doing the art for the first arc. Jim and I will continue writing the series with Amy Reeder Hadley (Madame Xanadu) taking over art for the second arc.
The announcement of an ongoing Batwoman series has been picked up by a diverse number of outlets ranging from IGN to Change.Org, Comi Girl, and even the New York Times. A few days after the initial announcement, Jim and I did an interview with First Comic News discussing some of our upcoming plans. Not much more we can reveal yet, but tonight I spent 60 minutes on the phone with Jim talking about our new villains, some visual themes we want to explore, Batwoman’s love life, how she’ll fit into Gotham City, her relationship to some of the other heroes in the DC Universe, and why she often grins when she’s about to get into a fight (among other things).
Meanwhile, a few more reviews for Star Wars: Purge — The Hidden Blade have hit, and the response to the story and art continues to be great. Comics Bulletin says:
“Purge is a fantastic one-shot that will no doubt appeal to Star Wars fans of all ages and, regardless of your investment to the universe that has captivated millions, will leave a smile on your face if even solely for the artwork.”

Finally, Hidden Blade artist Chris Scalf has posted a short teaser trailer on YouTube. While you’re there, check out his tutorials and other work.
