Next Thursday, September 4th!

ANGEL:AFTER THE FALL # 12. Because of Labor Day, it's not Wednesday, you see.

A full year's worth of ANGEL:ATF stories (more if you count SPIKE). Kinda proud.

Stephen Mooney KNOCKED IT OUT OF THE PARK on this issue. Wait until you see.

Read it before the internet spoils it. Trust me on this one.

Epic Adventure!

So I'm not going to lie, I love seeing my books in a Barnes and Noble or Borders or any bookstore, simply because I go in there all the time and buy every book that looks interesting. To finally have a few collected comic book editions in the stores, it's thrilling.

I went to the Barnes and Noble in the Grove in West Hollywood and looked in the comic section for ANGEL:AFTER THE FALL volume 1. When SPIKE:ASYLUM came out, it got prime real estate on the main comic table. None of this "see the spine and spine only" crap, it was full-on, gorgeous Franco cover OUT.

But I couldn't find ANGEL:AFTER THE FALL anywhere. Not too concerned, either they didn't get it yet, or it sold out. But as I was leaving, I saw a table that had a big sign that read EPIC ADVENTURES and featured a bunch of books such as LORD OF THE RINGS and so on. ANGEL:AFTER THE FALL volume 1 was among them. That was pretty pretty sweet.

EVERYBODY'S DEAD collected! ANGEL written!

EVERYBODY'S DEAD trade paperback is available for pre-order. Get thee to your comic stores and point them in the direction of the IDW section of Previews. OR you can order it HERE!

Included, in addition to the five issues of awesomeness and covers, is an introduction that is basically detailing my journey to try and get someone cool to do an introduction, character files, all of Dave's original sketches while he was working out the characters' looks and such, AND an EVERYBODY'S DEAD Drinking Game! Let's see SECRET INVASION have a drinking game! Let's see it! You heard me, Bendis!

Finally, handed in another script for ANGEL:AFTER THE FALL. We're rapidly nearing the end, and the scripts are getting more and more fun to write. I think I wrote some of my best stuff the last couple of days, hope you guys agree when you finally get the issues.

Back to work for me! Hope everyone is doing well.

ANGEL 11 and EVERYBODY'S DEAD 5 out this week!

What a nice surprise! ANGEL:AFTER THE FALL # 11 and EVERYBODY'S DEAD # 5 are out this Wednesday! Pretty exciting stuff, as ANGEL:ATF 11 features the long awaited reunion of...well, one of the covers kinda gives it away, huh? And that's just for starters, there are surprises galore. Pretty great issue, I think you'll dig.

And then there's this...

Oh yes, EVERYBODY'S DEAD # 5. The final chapter in the series (for now). Characters will die, heroes will rise, in the biggest ending like EVER. I have a copy and it is glorious!

I'm excited. Are you excited? Hope so!

Oh, and look what I have in hand.

Which means you guys will have it hand, soon. Hooray!

SPIKE:ATF 2 tomorrow, and other thangs.

First of all, go buy SPIKE:AFTER THE FALL # 2. I love it, writing is good (I hope) and Franco's art is insane. It's fun, dark, full of action, what more could you ask for in a comic book?

And don't say Xander. Because he's not in it.

To all those reading this blog that don't know BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER, Xander is a friend of Buffy's so that joke I made was not only hilarious but VERY timely.

Just moved from our apartment to a full-on house. It's our first full-on house, we love it, we love the neighborhood, and I have a pool for the first time ever, which of course means the neighbors want to know who the dude swimming naked is. Answer: it's me, your new neighbor! Don't worry, new neighbors, I put on lotion everywhere.

To all those reading this blog that don't know "full-on house", a "full-on house" is a house with bedrooms and a kitchen AND a pool. It's technical.

SPIKE:AFTER THE FALL is completely written. That means I only have one comic book to write, ANGEL:ATF. That is a relief. I need a break. One comic a month sounds nice. I am going to try writing this one in my pool.
