Ghost of Shameless Self-Promotion!

Been a while since we've posted here. Been lots of reasons. The cold of death that knocked us out for the first week-and-a-half of the year. Then the incredible trip to San Francisco that we just got back from and will blog about as soon as we finish the Flash Gordon and JLA scripts currently sitting boulder-like on our desk. But we did want to take a second to suggest you trot on down to your local comics shop today to pick up a pair of our newest efforts.

First, there is the Superman/Batman Annual #3, with the incredibly cool Bernie Wrightson cover depicted below.

The interiors are a knock-out job by the art team of Chris Batista on pencils and Mick Gray and Jack Jadson on inks. As you can tell from the above, the story is a whole new (and really twisted, if I do say so myself) take on the old Composite Superman character. Let me know what you think of it.

Also out today (or so I'm told) is Justice League of America #29, where I'm filling in for a month for the lovely and talented Dwayne McDuffie. I don't have a copy of that cover handy, but the issue is basically a reimagining and reintroduction to the old character Starbreaker. The art here is by ChrisCross and Rob Stull and it looks terrific.

As ever, if you pick 'em up, please do let me know what you thought of 'em.

And now, back to our regular deadline crunch!

I'm glad you're getting work at DC again. The Superman/Batman Annual was great!

No hints as to whether he has the powers of the Legion of Super-Heroes? Guess I'll have to check this out then...

Hey Shameless Self Promotion. It's time to put up information about your trip to New York.

Loved the annual! Always had a soft spot for the Composite Superman.

I just finished Justice League #29 and really enjoyed it Len, especially the Hal/Kal teamup.

Joe Meach ...one of my favorite villians of all times. A humble janitor who didn't even know he was one of the worlds most powerful villians. I always wished he was used more often way back when I was a kid. But I suppose it was because of his limited use that he remained such a fond memory to me.
