Two new issues out this week, though only one is available in stores. The one you can get in stores is Prophecy #5, continuing the crossover event from Dynamite Comics. Prophecy has been fun to write, trying to bring together disparate characters like Red Sonja, Vampirella, Sherlock Holmes, Allan Quatermain and even Ash from “Army of Darkness. This collection of characters probably shouldn’t work as a group, but it’s been fun trying to make it all come together. I feel like I stuck the landing in tying up all the plot threads for the finale in issue #7, but you’ll have to be the judge of that as the series barrels toward a conclusion.

My artistic collaborator, Walter Geovani, has been doing terrific work on the series, and issue #5 is no different. You can see a preview of the issue here:

Also debuting this week is Blackburn Burrow #3, the book I’m doing for Amazon Studios, with my great art team of Matthew Dow Smith and Jordie Bellaire (with Brian Stelfreeze on covers). The issue is free, and available in a number of digital formats, just as the previous issues are. The Civil War-era, supernatural story is an adaptation of a screenplay optioned by Amazon Studios.

In a rather curious coincidence, Prophecy #5 and Blackburn Burrow #3 share a character. Obviously wasn’t planned that way, and it’s certainly strange that the issues hit on the same day. But the same character — though visually different depictions — appears in both issues. Let me know if you pick up on it.

Cheers,
