FROGCATCHERS New Graphic Novel-September 2019

Experience a surreal descent into one man’s psychosis in this haunting and chilling graphic novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Roughneck and Sweet Tooth, “the Stephen King of comics” (Maclean’s).

A man wakes up alone in a strange room with no recollection of who he is or how he got there. The padlocked doors and barren lobby reinforce the strangeness of this place. This is—as he reads from an old-fashioned keychain beside his bed—the Edgewater Hotel. Even worse, something ominous seems to be lurking in one of the rooms.

But when he meets a young companion—the only other soul in this vast, enveloping emptiness—his new friend begs him not to unlock the door. There must be something behind it…but what?

A haunted hotel on the edge of reality, an endless bridge spanning an infinite ocean, and a man and a boy looking for a way out. This is the setting for a boundary pushing, genre-defying new work of fiction by one of comics’ master storytellers.

Thought On Comicsgate. Time To Speak Up.

A couple of days ago I tweeted about Comicsgate. This seems to have made a lot of people angry. Well, that’s too bad, but I fully stand by what I said. For too long, too many creators and members of the comics industry, who are not straight white men, have been harassed, abused and attacked online, when all they want to do is tell stories and make comics. This is not right. 

If you don’t like the stories these creators are telling, then don’t buy them. That is your right. What is not your right is to attack them and try to silence their voices.

I had hoped more creators who, like me, have had the privilege to create comics free of this sort of abuse and scrutiny, because we are white, and we are men, would have joined me in denouncing Comicsgate. I know many of you feel the way I do. I noticed that many popular and significant creators “liked” my tweet. And that’s great, but it’s not enough. If we can’t use our voices to stand up for the next generation of comics creators, editors and the next wave of voices that will keep our medium alive and vital, then what’s the point of having them?

The time is now to stand up for female comic book creators. The time is now to stand up for trans comic book creators. The time is now to stand up for creators of color and of all sexual orientations, races and religions.  If we don’t do that, we don’t deserve to keep making comics ourselves. 

So, don’t just like tweets. Say something. Let marginalized creators and voices know that we are with them. Comics are for everybody. Let the world know that.

MORE BLACK HAMMER AND OTHER THINGS!

As 2017 winds down I'm looking ahead to an exciting 2018 with lots of new projects on the horizon...

While ROYAL CITY and DESCENDER will continue I also have a new series, GIDEON FALLS, coming in MARCH with artist ANDREA SORRENTINO and DAVE STEWART. Andrea and I worked together on Green Arrow and Old Man Logan for Marvel and DC, bit this is our first creator owned book. Its a supernatural horror series, a rural mystery. More details to come soon.
The world of BLACK HAMMER will also grow in 2018 with the launch of the just announced mini-series, DOCTOR STAR & THE KINGDOM OF LOST TOMORROWS with artist Max Fiumara and Dave Stewart. The main Black Hammer story also continues in April with Dean Ormston when we relaunch the core series as BLACK HAMMER: AGE OF DOOM (details on that below).
And I'll be doing a new book for DC COMICS in February, THE TERRIFICS with artists Iva Reis and  Doc Shaner. The series combines a bunch of my favourite DC characters, METAMORPHO, PLASTIC MAN, MR. TERRIFIC and PHANTOM GIRL in a fun book full of adventure and heart.
And, in addition I will be doing another new series for DC called THE INFERIOR FIVE with one of my heroes KEITH GIFFEN! Keith will be drawing the book and I'll be scripting it, and also drawing 5-page backups featuring THE PEACEMAKER. The book will be set in the DC Universe of 1988!
