San Diego Comic-Con has come and gone. It was a wild, busy convention, and I had a great time. This was the first year that I’ve gone to the show and not felt like I had to beg for work. It painted the entire event in a different light for me. A bunch of announcements came out during the convention, and I want to share a few of them here.
First up, The Sixth Gun has been picked up by the Syfy Channel for development as a six-hour TV mini-series. I don’t have a lot of details on this just yet, but I’m guessing the series will cover the events of the first trade paperback. If reception is positive, it will likely go directly to an ongoing TV series. If you haven’t read the book yet, now’s a good time to start! You can purchase the first volume (and the second volume) or (if you need a little more convincing) you can read the entire first issue for free on ComiXology!
In other news, I have signed an exclusive agreement to write for Marvel. Basically, this means you’ll see my name on a lot more Marvel titles in the coming months. It does not mean, however, that I’ll have to stop writing The Sixth Gun (or the other creator-owned projects I have in the works). Marvel has been awesome to work with, and they have been very supportive of my creator-owned projects.
Speaking of Marvel, I’ll be writing a new 12-issue limited series titled The Fearless. This beast launches in October. The title spins out of the events of Fear Itself. Matt Fraction, Chris Yost, and I sat down with our editors and started discussing what would be going on in the Marvel Universe after Fear Itself. The result was The Fearless and Fear Itself Aftermath: Battle Scars. I’m not going to say much about either of these series, but I can tell you that The Fearless is a non-stop action extravaganza that tours the Marvel Universe in the most exciting way I could imagine. Valkyrie plays a huge role in the book, and I think readers will look at her differently once the title is done. It will be shipping twice a month, and it will be illustrated by Mark Bagley and Paul Pelletier.
And I don’t want to be a tease, but there will be some more big announcements coming soon! Keep your eyes peeled!
For now, I better get to work!
