San Diego Comic Con signing

7/22/08

Hi everyone,

For those of you who’ll be at the San Diego Comic Con this week, I wanted to let you know that I’ll be signing copies of the miniseries I recently wrote, SPEED RACER: CHRONICLES OF THE RACER, at the IDW Publishing booth (#1705) on Thursday July 24th from 4-5pm. Robby Musso, artist of SPEED RACER: COTR, will also be there. Feel free to stop by!

In other news, I wrote the biting showbiz satire “Jumping the Shark” which is the cover story in the sixth issue of the Papercutz horror title TALES FROM THE CRYPT, on sale now. In “Jumping the Shark,” a reality TV producer, fond of dreaming up horrible ways to torture the show’s contestants, doesn’t stop pitching shows, even after he dies! It features interior art by Mr. Exes, and cover art by Steve Mannion. Here’s a link to the official promo copy about the issue, and the cover art:

And you can read a really great review of my upcoming book FROM KRAKOW TO KRYPTON: JEWS AND COMIC BOOKS in the current issue of DIAMOND
PREVIEWS. I’ll have a couple of advance copies of FROM KRAKOW TO KRYPTON on hand at Comic Con. Here’s an online version of the review:

BTW, I just wrote these two pieces for the PRISONER blog at AMCtv.com (about the 1960s TV show THE PRISONER). Anyway, the first is a series summary (my bio can be seen at the very end), and the second is a trivia quiz. Here are links to both of them:
