It’s happening! In a week, nerds of the world will unite at Comic-con for another fun-filled extravaganza. I’ll be doing a comic book signing at Kymera Press of a limited edition PET NOIR #5. Git yours as it’s not yet available on their site! I’ll also be speaking on video game writing along with a panel of illustrious greats! Like the villain in every movie, I say “Join usssss!”

Writing on Pink Panther’s 55th anniversary comic

The Pink Panther is 55 years old! Not every day that you get to write for a character older than you are. I contributed a story to American Mythology’s Pink Panther special which came out last Wednesday. I was joined by artists Bill Galvan, Mario Zimprich, and Kyle Brightbill with Natalie Jane on lettering. We sound like an awesome band.

If you’re all in for old school Pink Panther, check out my “Pink Wallet” along with two other great stories. You can catch all three tails 😉 in print or on Kindle and Comixology. Enjoy!

Tomorrow! Crystal Cadets from IDW comes to print!

backcover

Back cover

The wait is over! Tomorrow the digital comic magical girl series I wrote, CRYSTAL CADETS, is coming to print. Consider it a verrrrrry last minute holiday gift for the young reader in your life. Check out the preview at Bleeding Cool. The 128-page book is full of action and wonderful art, so it’ll be hard to be disappointed. But don’t just listen to me, listen to people like you:

“This series is so cute!! I would say this is a good mixture of a number of things –Sailor MoonThe Prophecy of the Stones, and many other girl focused super power team-ups.”

The Book Ramble

“It felt like a breeze of fresh air and a good change after all the super heroes/very serious reads. I would definitely recommend you guys check this out!”

Cat’s Shelf

I know you planned ahead and ordered the trade paperback back in September. In case you can’t find it at your local comic shop, you can still order it online via Amazon. And if you hate dead trees, the digital versions are still yours for the taking!
