Still in a jet lagged haze so, in lieu of writing, here are a few video clips from my panels at the Etna Comics Festival.  The first discusses truth, lies and Brooklyn Dreams, the second talks about the importance of following your passion, and the third is about chemistry between writers and artists.

I'll be back when my brain cells are revived and I can make some sense!

Just got back from an amazing trip to Italy, starting with our time at the Etna Comics Festival in Sicily, then moving on to Calabria (home of my Italian grandparents and quite a few current-day DeMatteises) and then the extraordinary city of Rome.

Where We Live, the comic book anthology benefitting the victims of the October 2017 Las Vegas shooting, goes on sale May 30th.  There's a huge roster of talent contributing to the book and I'm very grateful that my story "Remember," beautifully illustrated by my friend (and Savior 28 collaborator) Mike Cavallaro, is part of the collection.

I hope you'll support this incredibly worthy project.

It was announced today that The Doom Patrol will be getting their own live-action series on DC's new streaming service, DC Universe.  But that won't be the Patrol's first appearance on television:  A few years back I wrote an episode—one of the darkest of the entire series—of Batman: The Brave & The Bold that focused on the DCU's most tormented super-team.  And here it is:
