Djibril and I spoke to the Geek Out Show about working together on Glitterbomb and I also cover working on Samurai Jack, Wayward, and much more.
To help celebrate the launch of GLITTERBOMB Vol. 1: Red Carpet, we’ve put together a convention exclusive cover for the trade paperback for Emerald City Comicon the week the book arrives in stores! This special edition, limited to 250 copies, has a cover illustrated by Eisner-nominated creator Ray Fawkes (One Soul, Intersect) and includes a special spot gloss cover treatment to enhance the shine on the creature’s tentacles and Farrah’s lips.
This limited edition trade paperback will only be available in person at Emerald City Comicon TABLE V-3 while supplies last, so if you’re planning to attend ECCC in Seattle on March 2-5, make sure you add it to your shopping list!
Glitterbomb Vol. 1: Red Carpet arrives in comic shops nationwide on March 1st, so Djibril and I have been doing a bit of a press blitz to promote the book. Lots of interviews covering the development of the series, the shocking twists and turns, and what comes next with our second mini-series arriving in the Fall.
I spoke to Newsarama about the upcoming THUNDERBOLTS anniversary event. We talk about the return of Baron Zemo, Kobik the cosmic cube girl, Bucky, Steve Rogers, and a whole lot more! Give it a read and get pumped for Thunderbolts #10, arriving late February.

• 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.
Next week the AVENGERS-MONSTERS UNLEASHED Special arrives in stores. 30 pages of big action and lots of quips written by me with art by the incredible Sean Izaakse and Frankie D’Armata! I spoke to Newsarama all about what it was like to write the Avengers and what readers can expect from this gargantuan story. Check it out!
Fan-favorite writer Jim Zub (WAYWARD, SKULLKICKERS) and red-hot new artist Djibril Morissette-Phan (The Ultimates, All-New Wolverine) will release the first trade paperback collection of their explosive horror series GLITTERBOMB this March from Image Comics.
Farrah Durante is a middle-aged actress hunting for her next gig in an industry where youth trumps experience. Her frustrations become an emotional lure for something horrifying out beyond the water: something ready to exact revenge on the shallow, celebrity-obsessed culture that’s led her astray.
“GLITTERBOMB is a very special project for Djibril and I,” said Zub. “Delving into the dark heart of celebrity with wonderful collaborators like K. Michael Russell, Marshall Dillon, and Holly Raychelle Hughes has been a thrill. We’re excited for readers to read this opening salvo as we reload and take aim at new targets in the next story arc.”
The entertainment industry feeds on our insecurities, desires, and fears. You can’t toy with those kinds of primal emotions without them biting back…
