Doing Voodoo

Despite the remnants of Hurricane Irene knocking out our power and flooding our basement, VoodooI managed to write a process series for my Shelf Life column on CBR about the impending release of Voodoo #1, my part of DC’s New 53 relaunch. The series of columns traced a set of pages from issue #1, from script through art stages to finished pages. The week culminated with an interview. Links for the entire series can be found below.

It was a welcome chance to expose a book I’m excited about, because it’s not quite like anything else in the DCU. It’s sexy, it’s violent, and hopefully it’s smart and unexpected. Because Voodoo is not quite like anything else in the DCU, I expect it might well struggle to find its audience. So I hope you’ll give it a shot when it hits comic stores and same-day digital download (legal!) on Sept. 28.

My Shelf Life column runs on Comic Book Resources every two weeks. The archive of previous columns can be found here:




Shelf Life Continues

My Shelf Life column at Comic Book Resources, which started last December, is still dropping every two weeks. The two of the three most recent editions have taken on death in comics (and specifically the fleeting nature of it), creator-driven content vs. editorially-directed content. The most recent column deals with the phenomenon of comic book conventions and the topic of getting and writing out autographs.

Please give a read when you have a moment.

Shelf Life column debuts at CBR

I’m writing a column called Shelf Life every two weeks at Comic Book Resources, widely viewed as the #1 web site for comic-related content. The invitation from CBR head honcho Jonah Weiland took me a bit by surprise, but the chance to run my yap about whatever happens to be on my mind was too good to pass up.

I actually penned regular columns in my former life as a journalist, writing both a film review column and a tennis column. I’m thinking films might come up once in a while in Shelf Life; tennis, not so much. Every other week, I’ll be writing about writing, and writing about the comics industry in general. The first two columns are already up:

Hope you give ’em a read, and comment on ’em if you’re so moved.
