Just a short one to let you know that I'm having a problem replying to comments, so if you leave a comment and don't get a reply, that's why. Here's hoping I sort this out ASAP.

I had a wonderful chat with sixteen-year-old Brazilian comic book fan Caio Santucci for his Fan of Heroes podcast—and I was very touched by the fact that this young person, living in another country, was so familiar with my work. A sweet, smart kid and it was a pleasure talking to him.

A short, but happy, post to formally announce that my new novella, a supernatural thriller called The Excavator, is coming soon from the fine folks at Neotext. The novella will have ten beautiful, haunting illustrations by my friend, and frequent collaborator, Vassilis Gogtzilas. More details to come!

There are few comic book artists whose work has echoed across the decades more than Neal Adams and it was a great shock to discover that this legend has passed away. His work with the brilliant Denny O'Neil on Batman redefined the character and the same team exploded the superhero genre (and my sixteen-year-old mind) with the "all new, all now" Green Lantern/Green Arrow series.
Adams was also a champion of creators' rights at a time when few, if any, others were taking a stand on that issue. Back in my journalism days, I interviewed Adams for an article in the long-defunct Soho Weekly News that focused on the fight to unionize writers and artists, and he provided the cover below.
Heartfelt condolences to Neal Adams' family and friends. His influence will be felt as long as there are comic books.
