The non-update update!
So I'm having one of those times when a bunch of stuff is just hanging out there. Things that theoretically should click into place any minute but ... well ... haven't yet. So, I offer some bullet points which are mostly useless:
* Film stuff. This has been a crazy roller coaster. One deal that looked like it was about to click went belly up. But two "dead" projects have suddenly found a pulse again. Yet another is hovering in the wait-n-see zone. I don't know what to think about you, film industry.
* THE SHADOW. I have a real appreciation for Dynamite Comics who were cool enough to turn me loose on The Shadow. Great pulp fun. A joy to write. #11 comes out today and wraps up the "Revolutionary" arc. If you've been thinking of giving The Shadow a try (and I hope you do) but don't want to stumble into the middle of a story, then I suggest you ask your local comic shop to reserve you an issue of #12 which is a self-contained one off. Then if you like it, you can always go back and get the rest.
* Other COMIC BOOK stuff. I am just itching to spill the beans on some creator-owned stuff. Two very cool projects under contract. Contract expected soon on a third. I don't want to be this mysterious. I'd rathing be blabbing.
* Fantasy novel progressing nicely. I've been gearing up for this one a long time, so it's really going fast now that I'm actually writing it. GO-GO sequel is coming along too ... although there are stops and starts because of other projects.
* I'll be HERE on April 13. Come get your funny books signed if you live in or near Dallas.
* I can't believe it is April 10. Didn't we just have Christmas?
