Sidewise, Interagents and More

Sidewise Update

The script for SIDEWISE Season 1 is complete and has been turned in to my editor at Zuda Comics. Artist Igor Noronha has completed the art for the next ten pages and we’re moving on. Our hope is to launch Season 1 in the next couple months, but that decision lies with our wonderful editor and the Zuda staff (feel free to beg them for SIDEWISE!), but I wouldn’t encourage you to badger them for a quick launch.

*Ahem*

Right, then. How about a few teaser panels?

I cannot begin to tell you how pleased I am with this story! I’m dying to share the new pages with you, and I’ll be sure to announce the launch date as soon as I have it.

Remember The Interagents

We are currently putting together the material for an Interagents trade paperback. This trade collects the first story arc (issues 1-3) and will feature a foreword by a New York Times Bestselling Author and a back-up story by 2000AD artist P.J. Holden.

Trust me: You do not want to miss the trade collection! The back-up story is a must-read for all Interagents fans!

What’s Coming Up

Sadly, I cannot discuss other projects I am currently working on. You can rest assured, dear reader, that you will be the first to know as soon as I’m allowed to spill the beans.

Zombie Custer and New Interagents

How’s This?

As promised, I will attempt to update my blog more frequently. Sadly, I won’t be able to post daily updates as I’d like to, but that’s the price I pay for working on a ton of cool projects.

AccentUK Western Anthology

Sensational artist Kirk Manley and I did a wonderfully gruesome story for British publisher AccentUK’s Western anthology. Our story is a tale of retribution in the EC vein titled “The 7th Will Rise Again.” Copies of Western can be purchased directly through AccentUK’s store by clicking HERE.

Here’s an exclusive preview of “The 7th Will Rise Again.”

This volume also includes work from comic legend Stephen Bissette, my dear friends Leah Moore and John Reppion, and Kieron Gillen–as well as the UK’s brightest and best writers and artists. So please… pick up your copy today. I’m certain you will enjoy it!

New Interagents

As you have probably guessed by now, I decided to move INTERAGENTS to my good friend Michael DeVito’s Th3rd World Studios. As a result of the changeover, INTERAGENTS #3 has not been available for purchase.

That’s about to change.

I’m happy to report that copies of INTERAGENTS #3 will be available for purchase very, very soon.

In the meantime, here’s another exclusive preview featuring cover art by Ben Morse and interior art by Valerio Giangiordano…

Time For Me To Fly

All right… I’ve got a lot of work to do and not much time to do it, so I’ll close for now. I’ll be sure to post more soon-ish.

The Rumors of my Death…

And We’re Back

After a long computer-virus-induced absence, I am finally back.

Erm… I’ve actually been back online for a couple weeks. With the amount of downtime, however, I was forced to work like a madman to get caught up. Thankfully, I made up lost ground and have begun working on some exciting new projects.

More on that later.

Talking to the Red Raiders

I will be conducting an Instant Message Q&A with Professor Rene Saldana and his education students at Texas Tech on the 31st of this month. During the discussion, we will be speaking specifically about my young reader graphic novel Kid Houdini and the Silver Dollar Misfits. For those who would like to read the conversation, I will be obtaining a transcript to post on my blog.

I’m looking forward to the discussion and thank Professor Saldana for including Kid Houdini as part of his class curriculum and for contacting me to set this up.

Don’t worry. I’ll try not to scare them too badly.

Grimm News

Thanks to comic reviewer Chad Derdowski, there is a new American McGee’s Grimm #1 review at Mania.com. Please drop by and check it out if you’re still undecided about the book.

This is my favorite part:

…The humor leans a bit toward the juvenile side. Again, that’s not necessarily a bad thing, but snooty critics and highbrows should be warned.

That is funny on many different levels, but I’ll let you draw your own conclusions.

Any Last Words?

Please don’t forget that INTERAGENTS is now available as a webcomic right here. A new page is posted every Wednesday, so please bookmark the site so you don’t miss out.

Oh, and be on the lookout for some very exciting INTERAGENTS news in the not-so-distant future.

See you soon.

Happy New Year!

To quote Charles Dickens:”It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.” Mostly the former for me, thank heavens. And 2009 looks to continue this trend!

Sadly, I will be ringing in the new year sick. I could be upset, down and grumpy about it–which I’m sure you expect from me by now–but I’ve decided not to let it get me down. In a week’s time (I’m being optimistic here), this creeping crud will be nothing more than a bad memory. My lungs may never be the same, but hey… trying to be optimistic, right?

2009 is going to be a fantastic year. I can feel it. With the American McGee’s Grimm book and INTERAGENTS moving into its second arc–and several other secret-type projects on the horizon–the coming year looks to be one of my best yet.

So there you have it. Just wanted to post a quick note to wish you a wonderful, safe New Year’s celebration. Have fun, but please be responsible.

The bed is calling my name, so I’ll leave you with this stunning interior page from INTERAGENTS #4 by Riccardo Latina and Valentina Bianconi.

Until next year,
