As announced on THE DC comics Blog "The Source" this morning I will be writing the new SUPERBOY ongoing monthly comic starting this fall!
I'm lucky to be sharing the creative chores with insanely talented and affallable Italian artist Pier Gallo! I couldn't be more excited to be working on "The Boy Of Steel", and can't wait for you to read some of the cool stories we have planned.
It's no secret that I love telling rural stories, and love super hero comics, so documemting The New Adventures of Superboy in Smallville is a dream come true for me!

“Writer & artist Jeff Lemire has created the new ‘must read’ book with SWEET TOOTH. It’s a fairy tale turned on its ear-or antlers-that takes you on the road trip through an America slightly more fantastical and just as frightening as ours.” —GEOFF JOHNS (Blackest Night)
“I would crawl over broken glass to read this.” —JASON AARON (Scalped)
“Lemire’s next great work is a shockingly original cocktail of the surreal. A candy-colored nightmare of family, violence and the end of the world.” —MATT KINDT (Super Spy)
“Sweet Tooth is a dark, moving, and intriguing story, and Jeff Lemire’s gentle writing and raw, expressive art work perfectly together.” —FRANK QUITELY (Batman & Robin)
“A remarkably strange story, drawn in an appropriately expressionistic style. I need to know what’s going to happen to Gus!” —PETER BAGGE (Everybody is Stupid Except for Me)

This Hawkman and The Atom drawing is being auctioned off as part of a fundraiser for The Doug Wright Awards! (details below)
The Doug Wright Awards are a non-profit organization that recognize the best in Canadian comic, past and present, at an annual ceremony held in Toronto.
To help us do this we thought it would be fun to ask some of the top cartoonists in the country to draw a piece of art inspired by the theme: Classic DC Comics characters.
The art will be on display at the Toronto Comic Arts Festival (TCAF) on May 8 and 9. The pieces are being auctioned off on eBay right now: shop.ebay.ca/canartsales/m.html?_nkw=& _armrs=1&_f...
Contributors include: Seth (to come! He's doing Doctor Fate!) Chester Brown, Jillian Tamaki, Jeff Lemire, Joe Ollmann, Marc Bell, Matt Forsythe, Michael Cho, Diana Tamblyn, Bryan Lee O'Malley, Kate Beaton, Tom Devlin, John Martz - and Lynn Johnston, who has donated an original "For Better or For Worse" strip!
All proceeds going to The Doug Wright Awards.
