Iowa, are you ready to rock?!

If you're in the vicinity of Iowa City tomorrow, Saturday, October 20, then you should come see me at Daydreams Comics, 21 S. Dubuque St. I'll be there from 2:00 pm until they turn out the lights.

Here's an interview I did with the Daily Iowan.

The conclusion of my two part FRIDAY THE 13TH story came out today. How many references to 1970s movies and TV shows can you spot?

Saturday Night's Alright for Writing

Working on the first issue of my as-yet-unannounced Marvel project. It debuts in February, same month as my four issue stint on WOLVERINE. Opening scene takes place in a Catholic confessional (and no, it's not Daredevil).

SCALPED #10 out this week

And over at iFanboy, Josh offers an apology:

Oh Jason Aaron, I'm sorry we got off to a bad start. I said it on the video show, and I'm saying it here. Jason Aaron... are we OK? You know, are we cool? Because I want to be cool with me. I didn't mean what I said, and it's out there on the internet now, and I can't take it back, because that's how the internet works. You make a mistake, and it lays out there forever, waiting for just the right moment when you cram your foot back into your big stupid mouth. I feel bad, because you gave me one of my favorite current comic book series, and something I can keep reading and enjoying and recommending for a long time, and I didn't even give you a fair shake. Well, here I am, making it up to you.

I guess I had to get that out of the way.

Here's a thing about comics. If you're 10 issues into a new series and you can do a fill-in issue that doesn't have anything to do with the plot, and it's not because the art team needs a break, and it is actually good, and adds something to the world, even without directly moving the story forward, you've got something good. We're in the middle of the second big arc of this story, and here, Aaron decided to focus on a completely unknown character that gives us a view of the world of the Prairie Rose Indian Reservation in a depth we haven't had before. I really want to know what's happening next to Dashiell Bad Horse, yet I didn't mind this diversion one bit.

Don't worry, Josh. We're cool. Thanks for giving the book another shot.
