Tracks Of The Year 2015

Mon, 07 Nov 2016 22:19:34 +0000

A typical year. For most of 2015, I didn’t think I was going to write this. As we moved increasingly into 2016, I suspect you didn’t think I would either. But no, I’m not just listening to Radio 6 and tap-tap-tapping my curated playlists, though for most of 2015 I thought otherwise. Pleasure was bleached […]



Out Now: The Wicked + the Divine #23 and My New Newsletter

Wed, 02 Nov 2016 14:47:50 +0000

And we’re back. It’s odd. We’ve obsessed over this issue so much I’ve almost forgot that as well as everything we do with it, it’s ALSO the start of the next arc of WicDiv, IMPERIAL PHASE I. The short high concept: the Issue is a magazine. A fashion magazine. Kevin Wada does all the magazine illustrations […]



Star Wars: Doctor Aphra

Fri, 14 Oct 2016 10:49:21 +0000

We can finally pull the badge of STAR WARS: CLASSIFIED and reveal the new ongoing by Kevin Walker and yours truly, out December. My first, somewhat giddy, interview is here. Lots more as we approach. In short: two-fisted (mostly) morally bankrupt archaeologist’s misadventures across the Star Wars universe. Kevin’s on art, and looks like this…   […]



Out Now: The Wicked + the Divine Volume 4, Darth Vader #25, American Vampire Anthology #2 and Cinema Purgatorio #6

Wed, 12 Oct 2016 13:31:18 +0000

The fourth collection of THE WICKED + THE DIVINE drops, which is our viscera-as-mascara Bad Blood pop-thrill arc, with Matt and Jamie back in full effect. We briefly return to a scuzzier Young Avengers mode to kiss goodbye, before heading further into the abyss. Hope you like it. Oh – we’ve also announced the unusual […]



DECOMPRESSED v2 002: JONATHAN HICKMAN

Thu, 29 Sep 2016 21:43:55 +0000

I interview Jonathan Hickman in my Comics craft podcast.



Writer Notes: the Wicked + the Divine

Tue, 27 Sep 2016 18:28:26 +0000

Spoilers, obv. Well, this was a horrorshow to get done. It took me forever to write the thing, there were all sorts of other problems in production and Stephanie had to work a nightmarish deadline to get it all together. Looking at the pages, I can see the febrile energy that bubbles off the pages, […]



Out Now: The Wicked + the Divine 1831, Cinema Purgatorio 5 and Mercury Heat 11

Wed, 21 Sep 2016 14:09:32 +0000

And we head back to the 19th century to explore our Romantic pantheon, with Stephanie Hans on art. This one was a lot of work to do, and was punishing for the whole team, but we’re very happy with how it came together. It is very goth, as is only right. I hope you enjoy […]



DECOMPRESSED V2 001: AL EWING

Mon, 05 Sep 2016 17:04:25 +0000

Decompressed returns in a more casual format. This time I talk to Al Ewing about comics craft and minecraft.



Uber Kickstarter

Wed, 24 Aug 2016 18:07:08 +0000

Uber returns! Lots more details over here, explaining about the project. Short version is: if you’ve ever wanted to try Uber, these are the best value ways to do so.



Writer Notes: The Wicked + the Divine #22

Wed, 24 Aug 2016 18:01:57 +0000

Spoilers, obv. End of WicDiv arcs are interesting ones. As a writer, I structurally back end a lot of stuff, and I’m always particularly planned. I move with intent, and with something I want to talk about and to try to explore. This arc is one of the most tightly structured issues of the larger […]
