Various and sundry

Hi! Here are a few items of interest...

First, on the comic book front... My next series is all but set. I can't give all the
details yet, but the first issue is written by Piers Anthony, and the next four are written by Dave Rodriguez (Starkweather). It's going to be a heck of a series, and it will be out early next summer. Hopefully we'll start getting some teasers out soon - the first issue, including 26 pages of comics and the original prose story by Mr. Anthony, is already completed. Yay!

I've been busily working on many projects lately, for such clients as AEG, Breakaway Games, Fantasy Flight Games, Twilight Creations, Upper Deck, and White Wolf. (Yes, that's alphabetical - can't play favorites!)

I may or may not be going to GenCon SoCal in a few weeks... it's not as if it's the biggest show in the world, but since it's just down the coast I sort of feel obligated. Still, I'm not sure if there's really much point in going since most of the people I saw at GenCon Indy will be at this one too. Though SoCal is a much more relaxed atmosphere, which is nice. Oh heck, I still don't know - check with me later. :)

Lots of new items out lately, or due soon, with my stuff in them - Promethean RPG from White Wolf, and their next Mage book, the new L5R set from AEG, the newest Game of Thrones and Cthulhu CCGsets from Fantasy Flight, the new set from Mystical Empire (another CCG), and lots more. My favorite, however, is the new "Art of H.P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos", which has over 30 pieces of art by me, and hundreds of other spiffy pictures by many fine artists in the field. About half of my friends from Ninja Mountain are in it, too, so it's quite a party. Look for it the next time you're in Borders, Barnes and Noble, or some other great book store. It's quite a beautiful tome.

Do you watch TV? I don't get to see much, because I'm usually working. But I've been TiVo-ing Boston Legal, and I've gotta say that's the only serial show I've been interested in since Angel. (Well, and the X-files which I actually only started watching in reruns last year, so I guess that counts for me at least). I missed the first few months of Lost so I never had a chance to see if I'd like it, and I actively dislike Battlestar Galactica (yes, I realize I'm alone in this). Utterly bored by Prison Break and 24. Missed the beginning of Heroes, too, so I guess I'll have to pass on that one until it's in reruns. But Boston Legal, wow that keeps me watching each week. Funny, fast and filled with Shatner goodness - that man is destined to be remembered as a comedy god.

OK, that's my entertainment tip for the month, and all the news I've got at the moment. I'll post when I can offer some more details about my new comic book. Thanks for stopping by!
