Tomorrow is William Shatner's birthday (if you want to know why I love the man, just read this).  Let's celebrate with a cornucopia of classic Denny Crane Moments:

Happy birthday, Captain—and many more!

“So what are you working on?” is a question I get all the time and I thought I’d use Creation Point to answer it.  At the moment, I’m as busy as I’ve ever been in my career and here are a few of the projects either out now or in the pipeline:

The Fox #5 is out from Archie Comics’ Red Circle imprint:  It’s the concluding chapter of a mind-bending, and delightful, mini-series conceived by the uber-talented Dean Haspiel and scripted by the great Mark Waid.  I wrote (and Mike Cavallaro illustrated) the Shield back-ups that ran through issues two, three and four—and this fifth issue brings the Fox and Shield together in a story written by yours truly and illustrated, and inspired, by Dean.  It’s comics for the sheer fun of it.

Over at DC, I continue to work on Justice League Dark (where we’re coming to the end of the massive Forever Evil: Blight crossover), Phantom Stranger (also part of the Blight arc), Larfleeze and Justice League 3000 (the latter two co-written with the brilliant Keith Giffen).  The fourth issue of JL3K—which features future-versions of Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash and Green Lantern—came out just last week and it’s a real turning point for the characters.  If you haven’t checked it out yet, now might be a good time to jump on.  I’ve also got a Justice League Dark Annual in the works as well as a Secret Origins story that focuses on one of my favorite members of the JLD.

I’ve started work on my new project with Abadazad illustrator (and all-around Mad Genius) Mike Ploog.  The book won’t be out till this time next year, so I can’t say much just yet.  I will say that, if you’re a fan of Mike’s spookier works, you should enjoy this one.  It’s filled to the brim with Things That Go Bump In The Night.

For those of you who enjoyed my 2013 creator-owned series The Adventures of Augusta Wind, I’m happy to announce that IDW will be bringing you more Augusta soon (well, soon is a relative concept in publishing.  It will probably be some time in 2015).  I’m very excited to rejoin my collaborator and co-creator, Vassilis Gogtzilas, as we bring Augusta’s all-ages tale to its epic conclusion.

Over in the world of animation, I’ve got a pair of projects in the works for...  Well, I can’t tell you.  But they feature...  No, I can’t tell you that, either.  All I can say is that they’re two of the most exciting animation projects I’ve ever been involved in and, as soon as I’m allowed, I’ll break the details here.

And now, if you’ll excuse me, I’d better get back to work!
