I have been told I will have some actual comics news to pass on to you tomorrow. Which I’m sure will make a nice change.
Funny thing about comics: for the last several years, I’ve either been doing Marvel comics whose artists are then moved on to more profitable enterprises, or I’ve been doing books at Avatar mostly using relatively new European and South American artists because that’s Avatar’s preference.
So this opportunity to do a graphic novel at a book publisher popped up the other month. And I’ve kind of dragged my feet on it because all the old collaborators of mine who’d fit it have gone on to bigger and better things — when my name is even mentioned to John Cassaday, he now fakes a seizure until the offending party goes away — and, ha ha, I find that I don’t really know any experienced comics artists anymore.
Maybe it’s a sign to line up a third prose novel next year.
(There should be news on the book that’ll replace the lost LISTENER soon, too.)
