Newsarama Interview About the Future of “The Beauty”

Today, the fine folks over at Newsarama posted an interview with myself and my co-conspirator on The Beauty, Mr. Jeremy Haun. It covers our reactions to winning the 2011 Top Cow Pilot Season, and gives a hint of what’s in store for the future of the book.

Read It Here!

This is the convention exclusive print that Jeremy had made for the book's debut at New York Comic Con last year.

Don’t call it a comeback!

… even if that’s what this actually is.

It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything here, which is mostly due to my extreme laziness, but I have returned! I’ll start in with movie reviews here pretty soon, starting with the spit-shined turd I watched last night, 2012: Zombie Apocalypse.

Until then, however, I wanted to say thank you to everyone who voted for The Beauty in the 2011 Pilot Season competition on Last week, it was announced that we were the winners! If you’re wondering when the book will continue, I’d guess it’ll be about six months from now. Jeremy is working full time on The Darkness, gearing up for his run with the amazing David Hine, which starts with #101. If you read the Arkham Reborn series that they did together a couple of years ago, you’ll know that this book is going to be insane. I will definitely be posting more about it as it comes out, because not only am I all about shilling my buddy’s work, I seriously freaking love David Hine.

Speaking of David, if you’ve never read The Bulletproof Coffin by Hine and Shaky Kane from Image Comics, you are missing the fuck out.

Seriously, this book is god damn amazing. It’s about forgotten heroes, cleaning the houses of dead people, super-hot cave women, an entire planet of zombies, and a dude named “The Unforgiving Eye”, all wrapped up in on of the greatest meta-textual comic series I’ve ever read. If any of that sounds up your alley, you can read the entire first issue of the original series right here for FREE. If none of that appeals to you, you’re reading the wrong blog, asshole.

Have a peachy day.


Pilot Season: The Beauty, Vote Now!

Hey folks,

Voting has started for the 2011 Pilot Season at the Top Cow website. The book I did with Jeremy Haun is part of this awesome event. The only way we can do more issues, and tell the the rest of our story, is with your support.

Here’s a little quote from the Top Cow site about how the voting works:

Preliminary voting begins December 5th and runs through December 18th on our site. You guys can vote how many times as you want! Vote to your heart’s content! This is the best way to get your favorite book into the semifinals, so vote, vote, vote!

The top four books will continue onto the Semifinals, which is from December 19th through December 25th. You can only vote once per day for these.

Finally, the Finals are where the top two duke it out from December 25th through December 31st. You only have one vote per day, and the top vote-getter between the two will be deemed our new Top Cow miniseries!

That’s right, now through the 18th, you can vote AS MANY TIMES AS YOU WANT! I suggest TONS!

Thanks to everyone for your support of the book!
