Had a fun talk with the fine folks at the Spideydude Experience podcast about my upcoming Shadow of the Green Goblin mini-series. We also discussed some of my past Spider-Man stories, as well as the upcoming DeMultiverse Phase Two and other things. It's embedded below. Enjoy!

"Love is essentially self-communicative; those who do not have it catch it from those who have it. Those who receive love from others cannot be its recipients without giving a response that, in itself, is the nature of love. True love is unconquerable and irresistible. It goes on gathering power and spreading itself until eventually it transforms everyone it touches."

Just heard the sad news that Paul Neary has passed away. Mainly known as an inker—especially when teamed with Alan Davis—Paul was also a top notch penciler. Although we never met, he took over the art on my Captain America run after Mike Zeck left and did beautiful work—going on to pencil much of Mark Gruenwald's epic Cap run.

Heartfelt condolences to Paul's friends and family.

Some folks don't understand how the plot-first (or so-called Marvel style) of writing comics works, so I thought I'd share a page from a plot for the 2022 Ben Reilly: Spider-Man series. This went out to the artist, David Baldeon, and I wrote the final captions/dialogue after I saw the art.

For contrast, here's an example of full script. This is from Wisdom, the supernatural western I did with Tom Mandrake for the DeMultiverse Kickstarter.  (DeMultiverse Phase II coming soon!)

Hope you enjoyed this peak behind the comic book curtain!

37 years ago today the "bwah-ha-ha" era of Justice League was launched—and I began one of the great creative journeys of my career.

I tip my hat to the amazing Kevin Maguire, whose one-of-a-kind storytelling set the tone for the talented crew of artists that followed, to our truly extraordinary editor, Andy Helfer, who made the whole thing possible, to letterer Bob Lappan who fit all that damn dialogue in with style and grace...

...and most of all to the brilliant Mr. Giffen—as talented and generous a collaborator as I've ever had. Keith: We miss you!
