I feel awful today. Started getting sick yesterday and woke up around 2:30 this morning, feeling like I had one foot in the grave. I managed to get myself up and dressed but we’ll see if I can manage a full day of work or not. I did record The Shadow Fan Episode 24 and it’s now live, so you can download it and hear me talk about Dynamite’s upcoming comics, Masks # 4 and 1937’s “Foxhound” by Theodore Tinsley.
I’m finishing up the last of the edits on The Rook Volume Two Special Edition today and then I’ll send them back to my editor. Hopefully that one will be in the hopper soon. I also received the edits on the first story for Lazarus Gray Volume 3 and will start looking through those.
My Weird West story is going well though my illness might slow me on it just a bit. The character that I’m introducing here is one that intrigues me. I didn’t want to create another series for myself and I think I’ll be able to avoid the temptation but I do have ideas for what other adventures Miss Anna Holst could have… Hell, her background is fascinating enough to merit delving into, as well.
No! Must show willpower and not give in! I have enough series to occupy me.
Pulp-wise, I’m currently re-reading The Golden Master, which is the first appearance of Shiwan Khan in The Shadow series.Good stuff but different than the usual Walter Gibson material. I will, of course, be reviewing it on next week’s episode of The Shadow Fan.
I learned that Sedat Ozgen will be the artist on my G-8 story coming from Moonstone. This will be in the format of “one page of text, one splash page” that they sometimes do with their books. G-8 battles zombie pilots in my tale so you know it’s gonna be fun! Sedat is a talented guy who has worked on The Phantom: The Ghost Who Walks, Airfighters and Captain Action. I can’t wait to see what he comes up with!
