The LEGO DC Super Heroes Visual Dictionary Comes Out TOMORROW!

9/3/18

Recently, I co-wrote a book called The LEGO DC Super Heroes Visual Dictionary, which will be published by DK tomorrow, Tuesday September 4th, 2018. (My co-author on that project was Elizabeth Dowsett.) In April, I talked about what it was like working on the book when I was interviewed by the geek culture blog Comics Beat. As of this writing, The LEGO DC Super Heroes Visual Dictionary is the #1 New Release in Children’s Dictionaries on Amazon. And here’s some info on the book from the Penguin Random House site: 

“Celebrate the entire world of LEGO DC Super Heroes with this comprehensive visual guide to all the minifigures, vehicles and sets, including the LEGO Batman Movie sets. Explore every detail of LEGO Batman’s Batcave, look around Wonder Woman’s Invisible Jet, examine Lex Luthor’s awesome mech and find out about all the LEGO DC Super Heroes minifigures’ weapons and gadgets. Find out how the awesome sets and amazing video games are created in the Beyond the Brick chapter, which features concept art and an interview with a LEGO designer. LEGO DC Super Heroes: The Visual Dictionary will tell you everything there is to know about LEGO DC Super Heroes.” 

Shameless Self-Promotion: Holiday Edition

12/29/09

Happy holidays! I wanted to share a few new developments with you:

* Recently, I wrote a Superman short story for the DC HOLIDAY SPECIAL 2009, which is in stores now; The story is called “Man of Snow,” and it’s penciled by the incredible Nick Runge and inked by the amazing Gabe Eltaeb. Here’s a look at the HOLIDAY SPECIAL cover art, by Dustin Nguyen. Via that link (if you click on “Download Preview”), you can also see the Batman story “Silent Knight,” by Jay Faerber (writer) and Peter Nguyen (artist), followed by the first page of “Man of Snow.” Here’s the link: http://www.dccomics.com/dcu/comics/?cm=13615

* And here’s a recent press release showcasing sample dialogue (written by me) from the upcoming HOUSE M.D. videogame (uh, also written by me), which comes out next month from Legacy Interactive: http://www.legacyinteractive.com/li/articles/index.php?section=pressrelease&article=75_12032009.php

* I’m also the script consultant for the Devils Due/Fantasy Prone comic book series UNITED FREE WORLDS, written & created by the supercool Blake Leibel. The first issue I worked on, #6, is out now. Here’s a link to some of the pulse-pounding art pages, drawn by Patrick Blaine: http://www.fantasyprone.com/comic6.html

* And last but not least, I wrote a story for Archie Comics called “MoCCA Madness,” which will appear in ARCHIE DIGEST #260, on sale this Wednesday, December 30th. The story was illustrated by the fantastic Fernando Ruiz, and it ties in to “The Art of Archie Comics” exhibit at MoCCA (the Museum of Comic & Cartoon Art) that I co-curated here in NYC. A few pages from the “MoCCA Madness” story are in the exhibit itself. Here’s a recent NEW YORK TIMES article about “The Art of Archie Comics”: http://archie-blogs.archiecomics.com/archie_news/2009/11/the-art-of-archie-comics.html

Hope you’re all doing well.
