The Pinocchio, Vampire Slayer omnibus is coming in June from Top Shelf! So, so happy to have this story all together in one place, as we always intended it. 500+ pages of comics goodness.

THE LEG is coming.

Flash #32, out in June! My favorite cover yet from the awesome art team of Brett Booth, Norm Rapmund and Andrew Dalhouse.

Green Lantern Corps #29, coming at you next week! Art by Bernard Chang and Marcelo Maiolo, story by me. Von Daggle is a bad, bad man. Preview here.

Sort of related note: As of right now, I am a full-time comic book writer. If 10-year-old Van had known this would be his future, he would’ve lost his mind.

Events kicked off in my very first issue (Green Lantern Corps #21) are coming to a head in Uprising, an event taking place in GLC and Green Lantern this summer. The universe has declared war on the Corps. The Durlans’ long-simmering plans will be revealed. More info here.

The great Dusty Higgins spotted something fishy (SEE WHAT I DID THERE?!) on Doppler and sent a word of warning. Pax is coming. We’re going to need a bigger snow shovel.

That other bit of news that I teased in my previous post? It is out, a day early. I’ll be co-writing The Flash for DC Comics, working with my good pal Robert Venditti. Brett Booth is handling pencils and Norm Rapmund the inks (check that awesome cover above). Oh, and Wally West is coming back. You won’t want to miss issue #30 in April (or any that come after that!).

My favorite Christmas story is A Christmas Carol, which is also my favorite of Dickens’ works (it has an economy of language that is, um, lacking in his other books). And one of my favorite artists is Joe Staton, who co-created a lot of the awesome Green Lantern characters that I’m now writing (and how surreal is that?). So it’s pretty awesome to find out that Joe adapted A Christmas Carol, and even more awesome that it’s available online. You can read the whole thing right here. Merry Christmas.

Cover of the latest magazine. Reverse type + metallic ink + Adrian Tomine. Winning combo, I say.
