I’m writing a GHOST RIDER one off for Marvel! And yes, I’m excited about this fact. It ties into the big Daredevil event written by Andy Diggle – SHADOWLAND – and will by drawn by Clayton Crain. It’s out in August, I believe. I talk about it at Marvel.com here:
If you’ve seen Clayton’s previous work on Ghost Rider you’ll know you’re in for a treat. He sent through page one of our issue a week or so back and it was, hyperbole aside, quite amazing.
Here’s a fine example of how he draws Ghost Rider from his prior collaboration with Garth Ennis. Purty:
UPDATE Deadpool #1000 has just been solicited by Marvel for August. It features a six-pager by myself and Philip Bond. Yep, the same Philip Bond whose work I loved in books like Kill Your Boyfriend. Crazy, innit. Lots of other cool people in this ‘jam’ issue. Here’s the Dave Johnson cover and the full solicit:
Written by DAVE LAPHAM, PETER BAGGE, ADAM GLASS, HOWARD CHAYKIN, FRED VAN LENTE, ROB WILLIAMS & MORE!
Penciled by JEROME OPENA, PACO MEDINA & PHILP BOND, DAVE LAPHAM, PETER BAGGE, HOWARD CHAYKIN & MORE!
Cover by DAVE JOHNSON
Has it really been 100 issues since Deadpool #900? Who cares! Some of comics’ top creators take aim at the Merc with a Mouth in this massive 104-page special that pits the Deadpool against a cavalcade of baddies – including urban cannibals…underage hit men…mimes from outer space…and Lady Luck herself.
104 PGS./Parental Advisory …$4.99
Anyone interested in how I lay out my scripts can find my recent JUDGE DREDD, Out Law, which was drawn by Guy Davis, on the 2000AD Review website. Gavin Hanly, who runs the site, has done a very nice job of breaking the script down with some of Guy’s final panels, so people can see how my visual descriptions were translated to the page.
Finally, I’ll be at the Bristol Comics Expo this coming weekend 22-23rd. I’m signing at the com.x table at some point – not sure of times yet. Laurence Campbell and I will also be signing (me)/sketching (him) at the main signing table from:
I’m also down to do the Marvel panel on Sunday (noon) and I’m sure I’ll do the 2000AD panel at 2.45. Erm, that clashes with the end of the signing. But I can’t miss Al Ewing in a plastic green mask, if such an event is due to happen again. Borag Thung!
Hopefully see you there.
