Check your appendages at the door...

No, the solicit isn’t wrong this time. DC is really letting me dedicate an entire issue of The Legion of Super-Heroes in the 31st Century solely to the origin of Arm-Fall-Off-Boy, a character famous (but not really) for his embarrassingly pathetic super power. And to top it off, Shawn McManus (Sandman: A Game of You, Aquaman) will be providing the artwork, topped with a great homage cover by series regular Alex Serra. The issue is # 16, and will be released nationwide this coming July.

Stay tuned for some behind the scenes images from the comic, and in the meantime, click here to see more info about the issue on DC’s website.

And for those of you attending the New York Comic Con this weekend, be sure to stop by my table in artists' alley. It’s booth # J 29-30, listed under my tablemate’s name, Wes Craig. Swing by, say hello, get stuff signed, or just laugh at me and point. It’s your call.

Signings and such...

This Saturday I’ll be in midtown Manhattan, participating in Kid’s Day at Jim Hanley’s Universe, one of New York’s finest comic stores. I’ll be signing from four to six in the afternoon, along with George O’Connor and Nick Bertozzi. There’ll be plenty of other comic book creators also on hand as early as ten in the morning, along with live readings, drawings and even a free cookie or two.

Check out Hanley’s site to see who else will be there.

Also, for those of you attending the New York Comic Convention on April 18-21st at the Jacob Javits Center, make sure you stop by my table and say hello. I’ll be sharing space with Wildstorm artist Wes Craig in artist’s alley at booth # J29-30. Hope to see you all there.

Now that's service for you...

The good men and women at DC Comics have heard your frantic pleas and have answered your desperate calls. Looney Tunes # 161 is being released earlier than expected and will be gracing a comic store near you this week. I know, I know. It all seems too good to be true. You thought you'd have to wait all the way until the end of the month to read about Bugs' dubious foray into the world of real estate. Well, the future is here. Or here, rather.

And don't say I never did anything for you.

In other news, here are a few quick reviews about my newest Legion of Super-Heroes in the 31st Century issue, in case you're one of those word of mouth types:
