STRANGE, DEATH...AND MONSTERS

Here's a shameless plug for the upcoming Batman: Death in the Family Blu-ray, which includes two shorts I wrote ("Death," bringing Neil Gaiman's Sandman character to animated life, and "Adam Strange"—from a story by director Butch Lukic).  Along with the title short adapting the classic Batman tale and a Phantom Stranger adventure, the disc also include a Sgt. Rock short (written by Tim Sheridan and Walt and Louise Simonson) that features the Creature Commandos—one of the very first series I ever created, wayyyy back in my early days at DC.

Batman: Death in the Family will be out in October.  End of shameless plug!

HAPPY STAR TREK DAY!



Star Trek warped onto our television screens for the first time 54 years ago today.

This is the speech that defines it all:  written by Trek creator Gene Roddenberry, delivered with passion and power by the great William Shatner.

Live long and prosper!

THE GREAT RAY

Today is the late, great Ray Bradbury's birthday.  If you're a follower of this blog, you know how much Bradbury means to me.  And, if you don't know, just read this.

We discover some writers when we're young, take them into our hearts, but never really return to them.  As we grow older, other voices seem more urgent, more important.  But Ray's work only deepens with the years, and the impact of his brilliant stories remains as powerful as the day I first read them.

Happy Birthday, Ray—wherever in this vast, magical universe you are.
