And last but not least we have Far Sector, a Green Lantern story written by N.K. Jemisin (making her comic book debut!) with art by Jamal Campbell (@pryce14). Cannot wait for you all to read this. When my friend Ian suggested N.K.’s Inheritance Trilogy to me, not only did I love her work, but we both thought she’d write an amazing Green Lantern story. And that is what you are getting, with stunning art by Jamal. So psyched! Debuting Fall 2019! #farsector #dcyounganimal #dccomics
Next up we have Collapser, penned by my brother @MikeyWay (I think it’s national sibling day too!), and my sometimes writing partner Shaun Simon. We did Killjoys together and you’ll know him from his work on Neverboy, Wizard Beach, and Art Ops. The series is drawn by Ilias Kyriazis (@iliaskyriazis), and looks stunning, and colored by Cris Peter (@coloristdiaries), and lettered by Simon Bowland (@simonbowlandlettering). This is a story about a guy with near crippling anxiety and a black hole struck inside of him, which are kind of the same exact thing. Can’t wait for you all to check out this new concept. Drops July 17th! #collapser #dcyounganimal #dccomics
So excited Young Animal is coming back! We’ve been working tirelessly in the background for a while to bring you more Doom Patrol, and two new books— Collapser and Far Sector. I’m going to give you a glimpse of each one in the next few posts, starting with Doom Patrol. Many people will be working on this next incarnation of the World’s Strangest Heroes. I’d like to welcome my co-writer Jeremy Lambert (@jeremyfranklambert) as well as the following artists and collaborators— James Harvey (@harveyjamz), Doc Shaner (@doc_shaner), Nick Pitarra (@nickpitarra), Becky Cloonan (@beckycloonan) and welcome back Tamra Bonvillain on the issues not colored by the line artists. And Todd Klein on letters. And of course, the amazing Nick Derington (@nickderington) on covers. So a lot of the old gang is still here. Drops July 3rd! #DCYoungAnimal #DCComics #DoomPatrol
Hey all! My good friend @frankieromustdie has a new album coming out on March 31st through UNFD. He put together another amazing group of people for this go and I have heard Young And Doomed and love it. Check out the song tomorrow on BBC Radio 1 with Annie Mac, and I’m sure Frank has a ton of other fun stuff planned for the weeks ahead leading up to the release. Umbrella Academy Allison character exploration coming soon, I promise. I’m trying to finish all these comics! #FIATFV #Barriers #Iamafutureviolent
I just received some very sad news. One of my dear friends, Anita, just passed away. I loved her very much and I will miss her. Anita and I became friends during the time when I had done an art contest on twitter, and she had tracked down the winners and gotten all of the addresses together so I could send out the awards, as she could see I got overwhelmed. But it was not long after that we met in person, at my solo show in San Fransisco, and we became friends, and grew close over the years. She was an amazing person, and we shared a love of Magic The Gathering and Star Wars. She had such a warmth and a light, and her job was helping veterans, helping people. We stayed in touch and talked about which new star wars toy we were tracking down, magic cards, life. She always sent me love on the holidays, and I sent it back. She would make me special magic decks, and we always promised each other we would finally sit down together and have a proper game of magic, a real wizards duel. We never got to do that, and it makes me very sad, because it would have been wonderful to just be in her presence for even a moment more. Godspeed Anita, and Rest In Peace.
