Just got back from vacation, and I'm still getting caught up with emails and such. Turned in SCALPED #9 right before I left, and Guéra says it's his favorite issue yet. While I was gone, the solicitations for September came out, and I have two books hitting the shelves that month.

“Casino Boogie” part 4 of 6. SCALPED gets spiritual in this issue when the focus turns to Catcher, the mysterious rider glimpsed in previous issues, who has foreseen the murder of someone on The Rez. Now he must saddle up one last time to try to save their life, and perhaps his own soul in the process.

This FRIDAY THE 13TH issue was the first new thing I wrote after months spent working on THE OTHER SIDE and SCALPED, both serious, intense, research-heavy projects. And I must say I had a total blast with this thing. I'd been a fan of the films since I was a kid, so no research-required. I just ripped right into it. The story is sort of like FIRST BLOOD but with Jason as Rambo, and then you also mix in a drug-crazed sheriff, a deformed teenager and more references to 1970s pop culture than you can shake a stick at.
