Riddle me this...

What comic features the Riddler setting off explosions all over Gotham City to once again torment Batman and Robin?

(Um, don't look at the picture. That's cheating.)

(Or look. Whatever. I'm not your mom. I can't tell you what to do. But if I was, I'd tell you that comics build strong bones, and you should buy more of them. I'd also constantly remind you of how long I was in labor with you and insist that you clear the table, because honestly, you've been slacking at that lately.)

Any who, I'm talking about issue # 40 of The Batman Strikes! Released this coming December 12th, my newest issue of this series features art by Adam Archer with a cover my Christopher Jones and Terry Beatty.

Check out the solicit here on the DC Comics website for more info, and please, try to make it home by curfew. My blood pressure is high enough the way it is.

It's like the future, or 1984 at least...

Recently I wrote a not-too-preachy-so-don’t-worry-about-it-it-probably-won’t-offend-you comic for the ACLU’s first venture into the world of comic books. The short story was illustrated by Mark Badger, and was published alongside another story which was written by Jimmy Palmiotti with art by Rick Burchett. The whole neat little package, titled Defenders of Freedom, was topped off with a Cliff Chiang cover and an Art Spiegelman back cover.

The comic itself was released yesterday in a guerilla marketing attempt of sorts to a few select cities, but it’s also now available online here at the ACLU’s website.

Also here’s an article on the topic if you think I’m lying. But keep in mind, you only get two challenges per set.
