A couple years ago, I was asked to be part of the Aw Yeah Comics Kickstarter. Well, the issue is finally out, and you can read my four page Cell Phone Guy story in it in issue #11!
As soon as I get my copies, I’ll have it for sale at conventions. It’s also available on from the Aw Yeah guys and on Comixology.
My new romantic comedy comic Long Distance will be in stores soon, and it’s in Previews now. Pre-ordering is essential for the success of books like these, and while I’m sure you can navigate the Diamond system just fine, I’m trying to make it a little easier for everyone.
There are two covers for the book, so two order codes. The one by me is APR150443 and the one by Lora Innes is APR150444.
But I’m not going to stop there. I’ve made a handy printable graphic for you to give your comic shop owner, so that they can place the order for you.
And because I’m still not done, I’ve even made an iPhone sized one that you can just show to your retailer to order it and save a tree!
I’m excited about this new series and I hope you are, too. The first issue comes out in June, but please pre-order it now.
It’s Valentine’s Day, which is usually when I promote the heck out of Love and Capes. (Have you heard of it? Check it out here if you haven’t.)
But today I want to share something different. It’s one of the animation spec scripts I did that helped lead to my upcoming Ultimate Spider-Man episode. I wrote a spec for Brave and the Bold, featuring Batman and Wonder Woman. The show’s off the air, sadly, so I figure I might as well share it here.
My friend Dwayne McDuffie helped me on this. He saw my first one and thought it was all right and spent a couple hours on the phone telling me what was wrong and right, but he challenged me to do “A Thom Zahler” script. He’d felt the one I wrote was generic, and he wanted to see the one that would be the one that only I could write.
And, this episode, Batman is called upon to replace Cupid, the god of love. What could be more perfect for Valentine’s Day?
So I did. Sadly, I never got a chance to show it to him as he passed away before I finished it.Dwayne not only made me a better writer, he made me want to be a better writer. That continues to this day.
So, here’s a PDF of my spec. Check it out if you’d like.
This weekend I’ll be attending Amazing Arizona Comic Con for the first time. I’m really looking forward to it! It’ll be my first time in Arizona for anything more than driving through the corner of it or stopping in an airport. I’m looking forward to seeing the actual city for once.
And, new city means a new con print. They’re limited to 25, like all the rest of the set. Hope you like it.
It also kicks off another crazy con season for me. Here we go again!
Valentine’s Day is coming up, and a young man’s mind turns to thoughts of promoting Love and Capes. Okay, maybe that’s just me.
Let’s make this easy: Share this post on Facebook, retweet this post or tweet with the hashtag #lncvalentine and I’ll enter you in a daily drawing to win a handful of issues of the series and a 6×9 sketch of your favorite character drawn by me.
I’ll run this all week, Monday-Friday. Along the way I might clear out the LNC prize closet. I’ve got some shirts and pins and stuff that I might throw in later in the week. And every day I’ll pick a winner from that day’s entries. I’ll end it every day at 11:00pm Eastern time, and any entries after that go on to the next day’s.
Everything clear? Great!
