Wednesday Updates

20121228-083913.jpgWelcome back, my friends!

Several things to share with you today — first off, I uploaded the 53rd episode of The Shadow Fan’s Podcast this morning. I’m afraid I go a bit negative in the direction of The Shadow Now # 1. It genuinely pains me to do it because I really want every Shadow comic and product to be the very best. As a fan, it’s in my best interest to see these things succeed. Having said that, this… was disappointing.

In better news, I finally (!) finished my Pulse Fiction story last night. Yep, I sent in the exciting tale of Doctor Darkness and The Insanitors to my editor and now I’m wiping my hands of it. The characters are fun and I hope they have a long life ahead of them but I really struggled with the story for some reason. Still, I think it works and hopefully folks who read it will be interested in the characters and they’ll continue on in other people’s hands.

So what’s next for me? Well, I’d like to belt out the third short story for Lazarus Gray Volume Five. I may lay some seeds in that one that will bear fruit in the crossover novel that’s coming down the road. That one will pair Lazarus Gray, The Rook & Gravedigger for the first time… and feature a heavy dose of my old character Catalyst, as well. “But wait,” says the one person who has dutifully studied my universe’s timeline, “Catalyst isn’t introduced until 1942! Gravedigger and Lazarus Gray are both back in 1937 right now… Are you skipping a few years?” No. If you read Catalyst’s introduction, you’ll know that there were Catalysts who preceded Nathaniel Caine… I’m pretty much spelling it out for you, right?

I’m expecting to get the color cover back from Tom Smith in a few days – Tom is a legendary colorist and I’m expecting to be amazed at what he does over Chris Batista’s artwork. I only hope my story will match the dazzling cover!

After I finish off that third Lazarus Gray story, I’ll be moving on to the next work-for-hire thing I have to do: the Sherlock Holmes novella I owe Pro Se Productions. As I’ve said before, this will be written in my style but featuring Holmes & Watson. I am not doing a pastiche.

The Liberty Girl book is coming very soon, as is the new Rabbit Heart release. I hope you’re excited about both!
