Happy Anniversary, My Love


It’s still Saturday in North America but, here in Japan where I am right now for a business trip, it’s Sunday so I’m putting this message out early.

Happy Anniversary, Stacy!

Marrying you and our time together has been the best part of an ongoing adventure I never want to end.

Your kindness, enthusiasm, and intelligence inspire me and give me the strength to never give up. Your beauty, in appearance but also the warmth you bring into our life together, engages and renews me day after day.

It’s you and me, lover, and I can’t imagine things any other way.

I’ll see you soon and we’ll celebrate another wonderful year of being ridiculously, delightfully together.

Dungeons & Dragons is seeing a renaissance with the release of the fifth edition rules in late 2014. Hundreds of thousands of players are returning to D&D or embarking on their first adventures and they’re hungry for extra content.
• This new D&D story ties into the Storm King’s Thunder event that runs across multiple RPG products, novels, and video games.
• This series continues with the cast from the hit Legends of Baldur’s Gate and Shadows of the Vampire stories, but is also built as a perfect jumping on point for new readers, bringing them into D&D’s classic blend of sword & sorcery adventure.

Glitterbomb #2 Reviews


Adventures In Poor Taste: 10/10 “Right in time for Halloween, Glitterbomb #2 ramps up the horror and will give you food for thought and all kinds of tingles.”

Fangirl Nation: “It’s an interesting look into the underbelly of such a glamorous world.”

Heroes Direct: 9.2/10 “this is a hugely fascinating story. Horror fans shouldn’t miss this excellent story.”

Newsarama: 10/10 “Everyone involved is crafting a tale that serves to show Hollywood isn’t as glamorous as the pictures make it out to be.”

Reading With a Flight Ring: “With such strong writing, characterisation and visuals this issue got even stronger than the first for me.”

Arriving in January: Thunderbolts #9 and Avengers-Monsters Unleashed #1!


I’ve got two Marvel super hero titles in January 2017, Thunderbolts #9 and the Avengers one-shot special for Monsters Unleashed, a new 2017 event! Writing an Avengers story has been an absolute thrill. Can’t wait for you to see what Sean and I are putting together for it.

Here are the solicits:

A seemingly straightforward mission for Spider-Man takes an unexpected turn when Earth’s Mightiest Heroes are caught off-guard by a monstrous invasion from the sky.
An all-star lineup of Avengers battling behemoths in this over-sized spectacular that’s a perfect jumping-on point for new readers and old.

THUNDERBOLTS 20th Anniversary Arrives in February 2017!


Announced at New York Comic Con over the weekend, in February it’s the 20th anniversary of THUNDERBOLTS and I’m writing the lead story alongside a special back-up tale by Thunderbolts creators Kurt Busiek and Mark Bagley!

Both Comic Book Resources and Newsarama have interviews with me where I go into a bit more detail about what we have planned and the drama ahead. It’s an absolute thrill writing this special chapter in the Thunderbolts story. Can’t wait for readers to see what we have in store.

WAYWARD #16 Reviews


We’d been away for a while but finally Wayward is back with issue #16 now available! What did reviewers think of it? Read on…

Big Glasgow: 9.6/10 “In 2015, I had defined Wayward the best ongoing series published by Image Comics (at least among those I have read). In 2016, my extremely high expectations about it are not being disappointed. Don’t miss it”

Fandom Post: B+ “It’s a very good read and one that makes out a whole lot better by taking a slower pace with it all rather than barreling into a lot of new additions and expansions.”

Flipgeeks: 9/10 “This issue is definitely worth your hard earned monies, mates.”

Geeked Out Nation: 8.1/10 “anyone who hasn’t seen what’s so great about Wayward to now join in on the adventure. The past is never truly just the past and the future is rich with potential”

God of Comics: “a whole new world of history, mythology, and culture awaits. This comic is impossibly good…”

Pop Mythology: “I love the way that Zub capitalizes on these unfamiliar folklore elements to entice his readers into learning more and weaves them so proficiently into the story that it’s a decide pleasure to turn the page and see what lies on the other side.”

Reading With a Flight Ring: “I’m infatuated with the work that Steven does on the interiors. His attention to detail is amazing to see come to life.”

TM Stash: 10/10 “Just when you thought you couldn’t be more absorbed in the world of WAYWARD, the story takes a twist”

Under the Comic Covers: “Absolutely worth the wait. So happy to have Wayward back.”
