John Carter of Marz … and Skylanders too!

Just a quick note before I dash out the door to San Diego. Among the pre-SDCC announcements was this one: I’ll be writing a regular John Carter: Warlord of Mars series for Dynamite, with the first issue releasing in November. If you know anything of my affection for Edgar Rice Burroughs in general, and John Carter in specific, you know I’m pretty ecstatic about the assignment. It is, quite literally, a dream come true.

Indian artist Abhishek Malsuni is joining me on the series, and he’s been turning in amazing work. Obviously there will be much more about the series as we get closer to release, but for now, more details and additional art can be seen at this link:

There’s also a recent feature about my work on bringing the Skylanders video game/toy franchise to comics with IDW Publishing. The regular series will debut in October. Check out the article via this link:

In Stores This Week

This week sees the release of Prophecy #7, the concluding part of my crossover for Dynamite Comics. I’d like to tell you that I had every last detail of Prophecy figured out from the start, and that I knew how everything would tie together at the end, in issue #7. I’d like to tell you that … but it would be an utter fabrication.

I always had a general idea of where we were headed in Prophecy, and that it was ultimately a Red Sonja story. Because of that, the climax need to be driven by Sonja, and her enmity for Kulan Gath. I also knew that by bringing Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson into the story early on, I’d need to pay off their involvement. Everything would have to be brought full circle: Sonja, Sherlock, all of it. It’s a juggling act, keeping all these characters in the air. But no matter how deft your juggling, if you drop everything at the end, that’s what the audience remembers. You have to catch what you’ve been juggling, and then take a bow.

I think artist Walter Geovani and I pulled it off. But, of course, the audience is the ultimate judge. A five-page preview of Prophecy #7 can be seen here:
