I’m splitting my time between working on a Peter Pixie novel for Pro Se Press and a new Peregrine story. The latter is going quite well even though it’s been awhile since I’ve written Max Davies and his friends in anything other than a guest-starring role.
Mitch Ballard should be turning in the final images over the next week and then we’ll be ready to go into production on the crossover novel. His interiors, combined with Chris Batista’s wonderful cover, will no doubt make this one of my best looking books — and that’s not even mentioning the fine work done by Pro Se graphic designer Sean Ali!
I also got an update on the Johnny Dollar collection that I contributed to — it’s still coming from Moonstone and I really can’t wait for you to read my story. It turned out quite well, I think.
Comics-wise, Marvel’s newest Secret Wars just wrapped up and I had really mixed feelings about it. I’m just not a big fan of Hickman’s writing. The ideas are interesting but the execution never packs the emotional punch that I feel it should. In this case, the ending given to the Fantastic Four is interesting but overall the series just felt like a lot of sound and fury… signifying nothing.

I’ll be back soon, folks.
