It’s been a while since I posted anything… but I have a whole bunch of good reasons.
I’m just not allowed to talk about them yet.
For those of you who know me, you realize that this is killing me. I hate keeping secrets, especially about projects I’m really excited about. But I definitely don’t want to jinx anything. I can give you a couple of hints, but they’re gonna be pretty vague at this point.
A few minutes ago, I sent the script to the fourth issue of a new comic book project to my editors. This is a pretty big deal for me, and I’ll be really happy when I can talk a little more about it. As of this writing, I’ve seen several pages of artwork from the illustrator, and it’s really awesome stuff.
I’m also preparing to start scripting issues four and five of an unannounced limited series. Again, the artwork I’ve seen on this thing has just blown me out of the water.
In addition, I’m gearing up to begin scripting a new creator-owned limited series with Oni Press. We’ve been working on getting an artist lined up for the book, and it sounds like that’s falling into place. What can I say about this one? Well, it’s a dark—the closest thing to true horror (but with a twist, of course) I’ve done in comics.
As for The Sixth Gun, I just completed the script for issue 18. Skipping ahead for various reasons, I’m writing issue 23. I should have that issue wrapped up in a week or so.
In the next few days, I’ll be tackling some more prose work, too, including a return to “Countless Haints.”
So, all in all, I’ve been pretty busy.
This week, I’m heading to San Diego for Comic-Con International. I plan on getting as much work as possible done while I’m there (usually while waiting in airports, flying in planes, and in the early morning or late night hours). I’ll be posting a signing schedule shortly.
In the meantime, here are a couple of things you might have missed:
First up, Jason Aaron and I talked a little about my transition to a full-time writer. Give it a read if you’re into that sort of thing or need to get to sleep quickly.
Secondly, I recently wrote a guest spot on Nexus Graphica that’s all about the weird western stuff you should be reading.
Get to it, hombres.
I recently did a signing tour of all the Fantasy Shop stores in St. Louis. As much as I love signings, they always end in violence and boffer weapon bloodshed.
