Two new issues on the stands for me this week, as both Artifacts #12 and Voodoo #4 reach stores.

Artifacts #12, the last issue in artist Jeremy Haun’s tenure on the series, brings the storyline to a head in a big way. To say much more than that would spoil the fun. The origin backup features the Thirteenth Artifact, with art by Michael Broussard. There’s a nine-page preview of the issue here:

Artifacts #13 will be in stores next Wednesday, Jan. 4, so you won’t have to wait long to see how the storyline winds up … and how the stage is set for the ongoing Artifacts series.

Voodoo #4 is also out this Wednesday. It’s my last issue on the title, for reasons that, unfortunately, are still unclear to me, beyond DC wanting a “different direction” for the book. I absolutely loved working with my art team of Sami Basri and Jessica Kholinne, and hope to work with them again soon. I’d also like to thank my immediate editors on the book. I had three editors over the course of four issues, but all of them were a pleasure to deal with: Brian Cunningham, Rex Ogle and Bobbie Chase, ably assisted by Darren Shan and Katie Kubert. Best of luck to everyone from issue #5 onward.
