Just a quick post this time — and admittedly, a bit of a shameless plug. A few months ago I had the pleasure of writing a Batman story for DC comics. To say this was a dream come true would be underselling it; this was one of the biggest honors a writer could hope for. Like many of you, I had a Batman poster up on my wall as a kid, so to join the fraternity of Batman writers is definitely something to check off the proverbial bucket list. It also doesn’t hurt to be surrounded by great writers like Damon Lindelof and Steve Niles.
Thanks to Chris Mitten for the raw, gritty art, and Ben Abernathy, my editor and friend, for giving me a shot at ol’ Bats. Yes, I made him something of a secondary character — but I wanted to explore a psychological story involving someone who idolized Batman from afar and soon finds himself in over his head because of it.
If you haven’t downloaded it yet, you can find it here:
If you like it, please tweet, post, facebook, etc. it so I can keep the lights on and the laptop in business. With any luck (and time permitting) I’ll be able to jump back into another graphic novel soon. Until then, enjoy, and let me know what you think!
