This weekend, I’ve got lots of cool comic book stuff going on!
On Saturday, I’ll be signing from 12 – 4 at Heroic Adventures in Edwardsville, Illinois!
At Comic-Con International, Marvel announced the upcoming (and fantastically titled) crossover event MINIMUM CARNAGE! There are a number of reasons I’m excited about this. First of all, I’m involved in bringing this story to you. Second of all, I have the chance to co-write a project with Chris Yost once again. Third, I have the chance to work with some characters I’ve wanted to write since looooooong before I started writing comic books professionally.
Now that the cryptic tease is out of the way, how about some details? Read More

Today, I discovered a series of Armchair Gamer articles focused on using The Sixth Gun as a resource for a fantasy RPG. The articles have been around for a while. I’m not sure how I missed them. But if you’re a gamer… or you know a gamer who should be reading comics… they are pretty interesting. Read More
Anyone who knows me knows that I claim to have once performed as “the World’s Youngest Hypnotist”. My dad was a professional stage hypnotist for many years, and at one time he put me on stage as part of the act.

I didn’t find anything mentioning the amazing spectacle of the “World’s Youngest Hypnotist”, but these still stirred some really great memories. I thought I’d share. These materials are from 1973 and 1974. Read More
